Naughty by Monte Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsMonte SchulzComing Attractions 28 Aug 2013 1:18 PM

Author Monte Schulz vigorously smudges the lines between fact, pulp fiction and literary fiction in Naughty, his first novel after completing his Jazz Age trilogy. Sexy, sociopathic Ida Krueger draws her husband Joe into an escalating web of deception and death. A fictionalized account of a real-life series of crimes and subsequent sensational murder trial that electrified California in the mid-20th century, told in Schulz's exquisitely wrought prose, Naughty is literary noir as you like it.

Get sucked in by our 36-page excerpt, which you can read and download for free, and once you're hooked, pre-order the book or find it on shelves in October.

The Complete Peanuts 1989-1990 (Vol. 20) by Charles M. Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 27 Aug 2013 5:57 PM

The approach of Fall always means one thing around here (at least for another couple of years), and that's the imminent arrival of the latest volume of The Complete Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. The ol' blockhead graces the cover of the 20th installment of the long-running series, covering the years 1989-1990. Schulz continues to stretch his wings and experiment with the new variable format of his daily strips, and the jokes are just as warm and funny as ever, and increasingly reflective. Enigmatic author Lemony Snicket provides the introduction.

Our 17-page excerpt (for reading and downloading) includes strips for the entire month of January 1989 (along with some of the lovely incidental pages designed by Seth as always). This volume, and the box set of Volumes 19 and 20, are expected in October, and can be pre-ordered right now.

Vip, Vip, hooray! One of the weirdest and funniest cartoonists of the 20th century finally gets his due in VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch by Jonathan Barli. This weighty coffee-table tome celebrates the man and his art across over 200 oversized, lavishly illustrated pages. Partch revolutionized the single-panel gag cartoon as we know it by injecting a healthy dose of absurdity and adult subject matter — namely sex and booze — and became hugely successful along the way. And yet his life and work has never been comprehensively examined, until now! Archivist, editor, writer and designer Jonathan Barli has assembled an astonishing array of original art and artifacts and gathered them into a stunning package. Get a sneak peek here and look for it on shelves in November!

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsKipp FriedmanComing Attractions 20 Aug 2013 3:15 PM

We're Friedman fans through and through: we've published several books by Drew, including work in collaboration with his brother Josh, and we're great admirers of their dad Bruce Jay. Now we finally bring the youngest sibling, Kipp, into the fold with Barracuda in the Attic, a memoir of growing up in a family of, and surrounded by, literati, artists, and pop-culture titans, not to mention other colorful characters. Anecdotes ahoy!

We've baited our hook with the complete first chapter for you to read and download for free! The book lands on shelves next month and you can pre-order right here.

Ray and Joe by Charles Rodrigues - First Look

Ray and Joe cover

Ray and Joe pages

Charles Rodrigues took morbid humor to new highs (or lows) in the pages of the National Lampoon and elsewhere, and Ray and Joe: The Story of a Man and His Dead Friend collects his comics for the first time. In addition to the titular serial about post-mortem pals, the "Other Classic Comics" referred to in the subtitle star conjoined twins The Aesop Brothers (seen above); Sam DeGroot, the private eye in an iron lung; the mind-shatteringly ugly Deirdre Callahan; and other saps and miscreants. If you equate "outrageous" and "offensive" with "delightful," these comics will poke you right in your joy sac.

This hardcover volume will befoul shelves starting in October — stay tuned for more looks and info!
