Your simultaneous Guy Peellaert fix and Robin Gibb tribute for the weekend
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under videorockGuy PeellaertComing Attractions 8 Jun 2012 2:13 PM

Yes, our Jodelle book is running late, and we're sorry. All we can say is, the project has expanded to something way beyond our original planning and you'll be blown away by the scope of what we've come up with. We're also in the final stages of refining and fixing the coloring of the book itself, which turned out to be a lot more labor- and thought-intensive than we initially thought.

In the meantime, here is a 1968 video clip of the Bee Gees (RIP Robin!) performing "IDEA" against sets designed by the one and only G.P. What a decade!


Things to See: What's in The Cartoon Utopia
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Things to seeRon Regé JrComing Attractions 21 May 2012 8:27 PM

Table of Contents

The days are ticking down to the arrival of Ron Regé Jr.'s The Cartoon Utopia this November. If, like me, you're eagerly looking forward to the book and you're a fan of Ron's hand-lettering (seriously, he doesn't get enough credit for it), you'll be happy to see this Table of Contents Ron's just posted.

I don't think the new drawing by Ron below, "The Harmony of Emptiness and Dependent Arising," is in the book — just some extra eye candy for you:

Late last year Gary Groth interviewed the recently-departed Maurice Sendak for the forthcoming next issue of The Comics Journal (#302, due toward the end of this year). At TCJ.com, Gary shares the story of how his encounter with Sendak came together along with a sneak peek of a few choice snippets from the interview.

Love and Rockets: New Stories #5 by the Hernandez Brothers

Good golly, it seems like it was just the other day we were announcing the start of the 3rd volume of the Hernandez Brothers' Love and Rockets in its annual New Stories format and here we are already up to the 5th issue, which will make its debut in July at Comic-Con in San Diego and land in stores a couple months later, as usual. Jaime's cover above reveals the return of Vivian and that can only spell one thing for everyone around her: T-R-O-U-B-L-E. The back cover Table of Contents below should spark your imagination as to the issue's contents and, say, that's a familiar face we haven't seen for a while from Gilbert...

Heating up with Summer releases

Things have been hectic around here and they're only going to get hecticer. Here are the advances and sample copies that have arrived at the office since the last sneak-peek update a few weeks ago, some of which have already been spotted out in public making their debuts during our current convention gauntlet and all of which should be available between now and July.

It's hard to tell from this angle but Joe Daly's Dungeon Quest Book 3 is thicker than Books 1 & 2 put together:

We already gave you this first glimpse of Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons:

The Furry Trap, the new collection of horror stories by Josh Simmons, is sure to turn heads and stomachs:

God and Science: Return of the Ti-Girls by Jaime Hernandez collects his superhero fantasia from Love and Rockets: New Stories in this snappy hardcover (the back cover is a humdinger too):

New York Mon Amour wraps up Big Apple-flavored stories by Jacques Tardi and his collaborators under this striking cover:

Steven Brower follows up his biography of Mort Meskin with this collection of Meskin's comics, Out of the Shadows:

It's a new issue of Tales Designed to Thrizzle by Michael Kupperman, yaaay! It's also the last issue, waaah!

Shimura Takako's wonderful, acclaimed and beloved manga series continues in Wandering Son Vol. 3:

And we're expecting another half dozen deliveries pretty much any day now. How do we do it? I don't even know!

Is It Wrong of Me to Gloat?
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Love and RocketsJaime HernandezJacques TardiComing AttractionsCarol Tyler 27 Apr 2012 5:51 PM

Three things I've read recently that you haven't:

(1) The first 42 pages of Jacques Tardi's next graphic novel, which looks like it's going to be one of his absolute masterpieces.

(2) All of Carol Tyler's astonishing, heartbreaking final installment of You'll Never Know.

(3) All of Jaime Hernandez's contribution to Love and Rockets: New Stories #5 (a.k.a. "What on Earth He Does for an Encore").

Sometimes it is good to be the publisher of the world's greatest cartoonists. Everyone have a great weekend envying me!

March/April advance shipments bring May/June books... Our shelves are starting to groan with advance copies of upcoming arrivals that have come in over the last couple of weeks. Above, the softcover edition of Stephen Dixon's short story collection What Is All This? (it's prose, folks), the softcover edition of Fredrik Strömberg's Black Images in the Comics, and (also below) Nicolas Mahler's Angelman...

First Significant Objects sneak peek

Significant Objects spread

At HiLobrow, Significant Objects co-editor Joshua Glenn gives you your first glimpses of the interiors of the book, presenting three two-page spreads as designed by good ol' Jacob Covey and giving a few more details about the book along the way. The excitement is building!

Significant Objects interview & story contest on Studio 360 (plus the final covers!)

Significant Objects

Rob Walker, co-founder of the Significant Objects project, was a guest on today's episode of Public Radio International's Studio 360 with host Kurt Andersen (who also happens to have contributed a story). Andersen interviewed Walker on location at Vintage Thrift in Manhattan and the two chose three new Objects for listeners to assign Significance to in Studio 360's Significant Objects story contest. Listen to the segment here or embedded below:

And hey, designer extraordinaire Jacob Covey just finalized the two — yes, two! — covers for the book. That's right, because we're crazy, we're publishing the book collection with two different covers, evenly split 50/50, so you have a choice of the cow creamer above or the bunny candle below. Amazon isn't going to let you choose, so if you have a preference you'll need to either pre-order from us or pick it up from your local book shop when it comes out in June.

First Looks: Gabriella Giandelli's Interiorae, Ditko's Mysterious Traveler
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Steve DitkoGabriella GiandelliComing AttractionsBlake Bell 16 Mar 2012 9:41 AM

You might not think our two latest preview-copy arrivals have much in common (aside from striking artwork and the fact that both have covers with dwellings in the background and trees in the middle ground), but you'd be wrong. They both feature mysterious, ethereal, supernatural characters observing the actions and fates of mankind! Pretty uncanny, no?

Interiorae

Interiorae by Gabriella Giandelli collects her beautiful and haunting 4-issue "Ignatz" comic series with the art now presented in its original full color. We're hustling this one out to premiere at TCAF in May, where Gabriella is a special guest! It should be in stores shortly thereafter.

Mysterious Traveler: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 3

And here's Mysterious Traveler: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 3, the latest tome in editor Blake Bell's comprehensive series compiling Ditko's groundbreaking early work. We're not blowing smoke when we say this is some of the best work of his career. This should be hitting stores right around the same time as Interiorae.

Want to see more? We have sneak peek excerpts of both these books at their respective pages at the links above. We're trying out a new scrolling embedded preview in addition to the traditional PDF download for more instant gratification, so check it out. And of course we'll have more photos and video to come. (In fact, I owe you a lot of those previews.) Stay tuned!
