Sam Zabel, a struggling cartoonist with an enormous creative block, hasn't actually drawn a comic in years. His world is reduced to the bare minimum of lifes necessities, and one day he discovers a word that perfectly captures the void he feels: "anhedonia." The absence of pleasure, of joy.

Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1 - Video/Photo Slideshow

Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1
edited by Greg Sadowski

304-page color 8" x 10.5" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-505-1

Ships in: December 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

This is the first of two volumes reprinting copious amounts of comics stories and recounting the career of cartoonist Basil Wolverton. Based on his correspondence and journals, the biographical portion of the books follows Wolverton from childhood to adult day-to-day life as freelance cartoonist, itinerant handyman, persistent contest enterer, and local pastor of the Radio Church of God. Wolverton lived and worked in the Pacific Northwest, unique among the first generation of comic book pioneers. In the precious period before the industry calcified into a commercial institution, Wolverton was free to work under the radar to explore in detail his weird tales of the future. All of Wolverton's non-humorous comic book stories will be presented in full, along with prime examples of his humorous comics and dozens of pages of unpublished art, including editorial drawings, advertisements, caricatures, pulp illustrations, rejected comic book covers, and unsold features.

Nancy Loves Sluggo: Complete Dailies 1949-1951 by Ernie Bushmiller - Video/Photo Slideshow

Nancy Loves Sluggo: Complete Dailies 1949-1951
by Ernie Bushmiller

336-page black & white 8.5" x 8.5" softcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-777-2

Ships in: November 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Many connoisseurs—including Art Spiegelman, Daniel Clowes, Scott McCloud (creator of the "Five-Card Nancy" card game), Joe Brainard, and Andy Warhol—have recognized that Bushmiller's often-corny Nancy approached its own kind of zen-like cartoon perfection. In its own way, it turned out Nancy was in fact the most iconic comic strip of all; The American Heritage Dictionary actually uses a Nancy strip to illustrate its entry on "comic strip." Fantagraphics' beloved Nancy series finally packages Nancy with the reverence it deserves. Our third volume contains another full three years of daily Nancy strips, from an era many regard as Bushmiller's finest.
