Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - First Look
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsHans RickheitComing Attractions 14 Oct 2014 10:00 AM

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Cover

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Inside Page

Oooooooooh yes. Just give yourself a minute or two to take in that sexy, sexy cover. That metallic stamp and spot varnish! That texture!

Yes, we are quite excited to show off these shiny advance copies of Cochlea & Eustachia that have arrived at our desk. Fresh from the twisted, surreal mind of Hans Rickheit, this graphic novella easily holds up to a rereading—or three—as the beautifully detailed (and often grotesque) roomscapes encourage your eyes to wander, explore, and revisit past panels. Look for this book in stores in November, or pre-order your copy here.

Our next Don Rosa Library book is here, filled with more richly dense and action-packed stories featuring our favorite duck family! It's easy to lose oneself in the page after page of Don Rosa's stories and artwork, and we may in fact have been slightly delayed in putting up these photos, such was the draw of reading each and every tale. And—what's this?—the first box set collecting volumes 1 and 2 of the Don Rosa Library is at our office as well?

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful and The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1-2 Gift Box Set are due to hit store shelves in just a few measly weeks, so hold on tight! We've got plenty of previews in store for you until then.

Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1 - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Coming AttractionsBasil Wolverton 13 Oct 2014 12:00 PM

Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1 - Cover

Dubbed by The New York Times as the "Michelangelo of Mad Magazine," Basil Wolverton sold his first nationally published work at the age of 16. Wolverton's work has been published by Marvel, DC, Mad, and a variety of other publications, and in 1991 he was posthumously inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.

We are excited to reveal the cover design for the first of two volumes recounting the life of this varied and unique cartoonist: Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1. The book will collect all of Wolverton's non-humorous comic stories and a substantial selection of his humorous comics, alongside dozens of pages of unpublished artwork, unsold features, and never-before-seen correspondence, including rejection letters! The book is available for pre-order now with an estimated December 2014 delivery.

The Complete Peanuts 1993-1994 (Vol. 22) by Charles M. Schulz - Photo/Video Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 13 Oct 2014 11:30 AM

The Complete Peanuts 1993-1994 (Vol. 22)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page color 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-773-4

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

Even the most devoted Peanuts fan will be surprised by revisiting Schulz's last decade of work. Schulz's cartooning has never been more expressive, and his sense of humor never more unencumbered by formula or tradition. In one sequence, the gang waits… and waits… for a school bus that never comes. Another shockingly showcases Charlie Brown hitting a game-winning home run—off Roy Hobbs's great-granddaughter? Then, Linus lobbies the White House to nominate Snoopy for a Supreme Court seat (it would go to Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Woodstock discovers his long-lost grandfather's diary, detailing a hard life in captivity (birdcage). Snoopy lands in the hospital with pneumonia, and all three of his brothers—Andy, Spike, and Olaf—come pay their respects. This is the 22nd volume (of 25) of the best-selling series collecting every single one of the 18,000-plus strips created by Schulz from 1950-2000.

Black Light: The World of L.B. Cole - Cover

During the Golden Age of Comics, Leonard "Len" Brandt Cole earned fame for his proto-psychedelic comic book covers. We've collected Cole's work from throughout his prolific career in Black Light: The World of L.B. Cole—a lush, oversized full color art book that includes an exclusive biography by Bill Schelly and proofs of never-before-seen unpublished covers.

Our final cover art for this wondrous book highlights Cole's style, described by the editor as "a brilliant spectacle of primary colors sizzling against intense black backgrounds." The book is slated for a December release and is available for pre-order now!

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - Inside Page

With its lightly textured cover and interior pages filled with Olivier Schrauwen's unique artwork, flipping through an advance copy of Arsène Schrauwen is both a tactile experience and visual treat. This first look shows just how varied the illustrations can be from page to page—and yet, it all ties together in a cogent, if surreal, biographical account of the artist's grandfather.

Ollie Schrauwen's first full-length graphic novel is not to be missed. We'll have more previews coming up on the Flog, and the book is available for pre-order now!
