The Adventures of Jodelle by Guy Peellaert & Pierre Bartier

A lot of painstaking work is about to come to fruition as we're preparing to send our new edition of the cult classic The Adventures of Jodelle by Guy Peellaert & Pierre Bartier off to the printer. From Kim Thompson's new English translation to the meticulous recreation of the eye-popping colors to the 80 pages of new supplemental material, with the entire package overseen by Peellaert's son Orson, we've gone all-out to bring you the definitive edition of this psychedelic, satirical, and sexy Pop Art masterpiece. We're pleased to bring you this first look at the finalized cover design; the book itself should be hitting shelves in February.

First Look: Jack Jackson's American History: Los Tejanos & Lost Cause

Jack Jackson's American History: Los Tejanos & Lost Cause

Jack Jackson's American History: Los Tejanos & Lost Cause

Here is a book that we are very proud to be presenting this December: Jack Jackson's American History: Los Tejanos & Lost Cause, combining two of Jackson's historical graphic novels from the 1980s into a new, lovingly-produced hardcover volume (the first in a series of three). Together they comprise a masterful and unflinching look at Texas during its decades-long pre-Civil War conflict with Mexico and its struggles during the Reconstruction. Combining historical verisimilitude with crisp, muscular artwork, Jackson's uncompromising work is unparallelled in his milieu, and we are pleased to present his great works in a format befitting their stature. More copious previews are in the works; for now you can read 26 pages, with excerpts from both stories, right here.

Castle Waiting Vol. 1 (Softcover Edition) by Linda Medley

At last, Volume 1 of Linda Medley's beloved Castle Waiting is coming out in an omnibus softcover edition following multiple printings of the hardcover collection. If you've never read this wonderful series before, this fat, affordable paperback will be the perfect place to start! Here's a quick peek at one of the advance copies we received a few days ago — you can read the entire first chapter for free right here, and we'll be posting more detailed previews in the near future. We'll have copies available in about a month and it should hit shelves shortly after that.

Cover Uncovered: The Grammar of Rock by Alexander Theroux

The Grammar of Rock: Art and Artlessness in 20th Century Pop Lyrics by Alexander Theroux

If you like erudite and sharp-witted cultural criticism you'll want to get your hands on this forthcoming collection of essays by Alexander Theroux, titled The Grammar of Rock: Art and Artlessness in 20th Century Pop Lyrics, when it's released in January. Covering a century of pop music from Ira Gershwin to Ghostface Killah, Theroux deconstructs and evaluates the very nature of the pop song. We're just putting on the finishing touches and packing it off to the printer and, by gum, it's 160 pages longer than when we first announced it. And why yes, that is a vintage Robert Crumb drawing on the front cover.

Max's Vapor blog

Vapor - Max

Vapor, the long-awaited new graphic novel by Spanish master of surrealist comics Max, comes out next week in his home country from our fine colleagues at La Cúpula (in Spanish and Catalan editions, shown above), and our English-language edition is now rescheduled for June of next year. To celebrate (and promote) the book's arrival, Max has started a new blog exploring the creative process of the book, posting developmental artwork, inspirations, and other behind-the-scenes info. It's all in Spanish but Google Translate does a pretty fair job with it if you're not multilingual.

LRNS #5 Is Out, Onto LRNS #6!

Love and Rockets: New Stories #6 - cover line art by Gilbert Hernandez
(click image to enlarge)

The indefatigable Gilbert Hernandez has already turned in his cover to next Fall's Love and Rockets: New Stories #6, featuring "Killer" in a pose and milieu that long-time LR fans will find familiar (and which picks up from the storyline in #5). That issue's stories will also tie into the life-of-Luba graphic novel "Poison River," albeit in an unexpected way.
