New Comics Day 11.12.14
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Olivier SchrauwenNew Comics DayFloyd GottfredsonDisney 12 Nov 2014 2:54 PM

This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability.
Arsene Schrauwen
Arsène Schrauwen
by Olivier Schrauwen

250-page color 8" x 10" hardcover • $34.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-730-7

"There is an element of old world fable, distinctly European, to Arsene Schrauwen, as well as the kind of modernist journeys portrayed in books like Kafka's Amerika, with their emphasis on the conflict between an individual's internal struggles and the absurdity of their surroundings, both subtle and sublime." –Harris Smith, comiXology

"It is often said that to reduce a work to comparisons with its forebears is to reveal less the critic's grasp of lineage than his poverty of analysis, but I've found estimations like ‘Roy Andersson remaking Fitzcarraldo as an X-rated children's comic' to be personally useful in conveying the unique tone of this Olivier Schrauwen original, reductive as it may be." –Joe McCulloch, TCJ

Mickey Mouse 6
Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 6: Lost in Lands of Long Ago

by Floyd Gottfredson

288-page black & white with color 10.5" x 8.75" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-782-6 

"A revelation. As in his contemporaneous animated cartoons, this Mickey is a feisty, wisecracking daredevil... Gottfredson's charmingly old-fashioned drawings accentuate the gags and briskly propel the plotlines." –Gordon Flagg, Booklist

"I have a feeling that this book, crafted with such obvious care, will earn Gottfredson a new legion of admirers." –Leonard Maltin



Mickey Mouse boxset
Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5 + 6 Box Set
by Floyd Gottfredson 

576-page black & white with color 10.75" x 9" x 2.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-783-3

"[The Blot's design] simple but phenomenally effective, and actually manages to be haunting. Plus, there are multiple deathtraps in this story, and if there's one thing I like to see in my adventure comics, it's ridiculously complicated attempts to murder someone that are foiled at the last...And really, [the Blot] the perfect bit of imagery for this book: Fantastic, historically important comics that have been made far more difficult to read by a black mark on Gottfredson's record." –Chris Sims, Comics Alliance

"Great lover, scholar, soldier, sailor, singer, toreador, tycoon, jockey, prizefighter, automobile racer, aviator, farmer. Mickey Mouse lives in a world in which space, time, and the law of physics are nil. He can reach inside of a bull's mouth, pull out his teeth and use them as castanets. He can lead a band or play violin solos; his ingenuity is limitless; he never fails." - Time Magazine (1931) 





















Fantagraphics dominates NY Times Best Seller List
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Walt KellyPeanutsDon RosaDisneyCharles M Schulz 10 Nov 2014 11:50 AM
Best Seller
This week, Fantagraphics topped the NY Times Best Seller list in hardback graphic novels. Four of our new releases landed on the list: In the number one position was Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Strips Vol. 3 "Evidence to the Contrary" by Walt KellyThis volume features daily and Sunday strips (in full color) from 1953-1954. Kelly introduces one of his boldest political caricatures, the insidious Simple J. Malarkey. Seminole Sam scams, Churchy La Femme cross-dresses, P.T. Bridgeport returns and more.
 Pogo Vol. 3 Peanuts
N0. 2 on the Best Seller list was The Complete Peanuts 1991-1994 Gift Box Set by Charles M. Schulz. There's a reason this two-some is so popular; the books are full of surprises for the most ardent Peanuts fan and Schulz's humor is unrestrained and glorious. There is a charmingly odd story of when the school bus never comes, full-on Waiting for Godot. In addition, Charlie Brown finally FINALLY hits a home run but the entire story is worth the boxset. 
Rosa Box Set 
At spot 3 is Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Libary Volumes 1 + 2 Gift Box Set including "Return to Plain Awful" and "Son of the Sun". Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns!  Duckburg's richest tycoon is on the hunt for legendary square eggs - and he's bringing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie along, in the sequel to "Lost in the Andes"! 
 Peanuts
And at spot 6 is the single volume of The Complete Peanuts Vol. 22 1993-1994 by Charles M. Schulz. Complete with the homerun, the bus that wouldn't come PLUS Snoopy makes a run for the Supreme Court and battles pneumonia.
 
The week these four books came out, we had about 54 pounds of graphic novels, comic strips and reprints come out so we still a bit shocked to have so many titles on the list (but not so shocked when you consider the awesome comics). Gary and Eric did some deadlifts just to see if they could guess the weight of the releases from Wednesday, October 22nd. 
Deadlift 
We'll keep printing if you keep a-reading! 
Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vols. 5-6 Box Set by Floyd Gottfredson - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesFloyd GottfredsonDisney 30 Oct 2014 10:06 AM

"Gottfredson drew Mickey with a nosy snout and the bright eyes of an adrenalin junkie. The mouse’s diminutive size inspired Gottfredson to have the character attempt daredevil races, leaping stunts, and develop a flurry-fisted fighting style… This beautiful [series] gives the Great Rodent his humanity." – Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge & Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1-2 Boxset - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesDon RosaDisney 29 Oct 2014 1:30 PM

"…[I]t looks great, and the new volumes of the Rosa library should prove perfect companion volumes for those in the Barks library, particularly for readers who find their appetites for these types of duck tales whetted by the Barks books. …Rosa’s Duck comics? They’re great ones." – J. Caleb Mozzocco, School Library Journal

"…Rosa is so sincere in his desire to revive Barks’s style of adventure and humor it shows in every panel, every detail of his work. He’s taking this seriously, folks, and its all there. …Good stuff, sez I." – Jerry Beck, Cartoon Research

"I love [Don Rosa’s] body of work. I’ve bought it multiple times. I’ll be happily buying it again when Fantagraphics reprints it this fall. Love, love, love." – Augie de Blieck Jr., Comic Book Resources

"Rosa’s comics may be the best comics ever done in the voice of another creator. They’re very funny, satisfying yarns, and this presentation—particularly the color—is super-handsome. This would have been my favorite book ever at eight years old, and I’m fond of it now." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability. WARNING: Do not atttempt to carry all of these titles at once. You are only human. 
Sock Monkey  
Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods
by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire

80-page black & white 6" x 9" hardcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-746-8 

"Compelling, beguiling and visually intoxicating, this latest Sock Monkey yarn judiciously leavens discovery with anxiety, heartbreak with gleeful imaginative innocence and terror with bold triumph…Win's Christmas Gift Recommendation: a new classic to add to the "Every Kid Must Read" list... 10/10" –Win Wiacek, Now Read This!
 
"It's really good. I thought that giant Sock Monkey collection was criminally under-discussed when it came out. Those are lovely, lovely comics. The characters work in this form, too." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
Set to Sea
Set To Sea [Softcover Ed.]
by Drew Weing

144-page black & white with color 5" x 6.25" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-771-0 

"Now that sublime and out-of-print yarn is back as a deliciously handy, pocket-sized softcover reissue that will - if there's any justice - finally make [Weing] a household name amongst lovers of tall tales and comic treasures." –Win Wiacek, Now Read This!
 
"Very few words are needed in Weing's debut graphic novel [Set to Sea] to tell the story of a poet wanna-be who is kidnapped by pirates and learns the ways of the sea through hard labor and even tougher battles. The cross-hatch styling is reminiscent of old engravings and perfectly suits the subject matter. Each page features just one frame, full of detail and atmosphere. With hints of The Odyssey, Moby Dick, Popeye and Treasure Island, Weing has created a modern classic in the pirate genre." –School Library Journal   
Palestine  
Palestine
by Joe Sacco, introduction by Edward Said
 
288-page black & white 7" x 10 3/4" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 9-781-56097-4321
 
"Sacco is a pioneer." –Journal of Palestinian Studies 
 
" . . Sacco has a feel for displaced persons in general." –Shawn Conner, The Snipe News 
 
Return to Plain Awful

by Don Rosa

216-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-780-2 

"You're gonna want to pick that up this week, or write yourself a note to do so in the near future, as it's a pretty great collection..." –J Caleb. Mozzocco, Every Day is Like Wednesday
 
"You must think I'm a broken record by now. Any time a Carl Barks or Don Rosa book of Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge comics is released, I get all excited. Because they're great! I'm not kidding! Also good for jaded fans too cool for kids' comics." –Tim Finn, Hub Comics (via 13th Dimension)
Rosa boxset  
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1 & 2 Gift Box Set
by Don Rosa 

424-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-781-9  
 
"Let me be perfectly clear: The Don Rosa & Carl Barks Duck books are as good as comics get. Period. Nothing surpasses - only matches - the pure imagination, humor, adventure, and heart of these Donald Duck & Uncle Scrooge stories. These are desert island comics - if I had to take only one box of comics with me somewhere, a couple of these volumes would be coming with." –Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics  
 
"…it's a rare, rare accomplishment what Rosa did with these great Carl Barks characters and comics." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
  
Pogo Volume 3
Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips Vol. 3: "Evidence to the Contrary"
by Walt Kelly

368-page black & white with color 11.25" x 9.25" hard/soft/cover • $45.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-694-2 

 "...[T]here's simply no denying Kelly's mastery: he evokes full characters with nothing but a few choice words, and the sprightliness of his visual style is all fun here, laying the groundwork for what would become profoundly subversive later. The included essays, as is usually the case for Fantagraphics reissues, absolutely nail the context and import of the strip, too. I just don't think you can say you love comics and not have this around." –David Berry, National Post

"The biggest revelation of reading the first two years of Pogo is how polished and funny the strip was right from the start, and also how nearly every Pogo panel is a delight unto itself. Kelly didn't necessarily build to big punchlines; he'd slip funny sight gags and memorable lines everywhere there was room. ...[T]here's a classic Pogo moment on just about every page of this book." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

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

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

"Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life." –Bill Clinton

"The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child..." –TIME Magazine

 
Peanuts Every Sunday  
Peanuts Every Sunday 1956-1960 (Vol. 2)
by Charles M. Schulz 

288-page full color 13.25" x 9.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-794-9 

"The daily black-and-white comics were great but the full-color Sunday strips gave Schulz a big, beautiful canvas to let his expert pacing and amazing linework breathe in a rainbow of color...it's really the entire mix of characters ...and their mix of adult prickliness and childlike naiveté that made Charles Schulz's iconic comics strips so timeless." - Evan Narcisse, Kotaku
 
Peanuts Volume 2
The Complete Peanuts 1953-1954 (Vol. 2 Softcover)
by Charles M. Schulz 

320-page black & white with spot color 8.25" x 6.25" softcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-792-5 
 
"The Complete Peanuts has framed Charles Schulz's enduring masterpiece about as well any lifelong fan could've hoped." –"The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives", The A.V. Club
Peanuts 
The Complete Peanuts 1950-1954 Gift Box Set (Vols. 1-2 Softcover)
by Charles M. Schulz 

680-page black & white with spot color 8.5" x 6.75" softcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-793-2 
 
Barks Duck Set
Walt Disney's Donald Duck Box Set: Lost in the Andes & Trail of the Unicorn (Carl Barks Library Vols. 7-8)
by Carl Barks

472-page full color 7.75" x 10.5" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-796-3
 
"I will not rest until everyone is reading these reasonably priced and beautifully designed and edited volumes of Carl Barks' Disney Duck masterpieces… every one of them are great." –Andy Mansell, Heroes Online  
 
"Even now, Barks' stories are clever and funny, as he leads the ducks into impossible situations and then gives them unexpected ways out. And they're poignant in their own way, too.... What's impressive about Fantagraphics' Lost in the Andes is that it encourages both a fannish and an intellectual approach to the material." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Simon HanselmannDisneyCarl Barksawards 24 Oct 2014 3:20 PM
Seven Cities  Megahex
Congratulations are in order (again)! Carl Barks is on the NY Times Best Sellers list at #2 for his new collection Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge "The Seven Cities of Gold". The NY Times poses the question, "Will Uncle Scrooge and his nephews survive a trip to the lost city of gold?" We certainly hope so! But you'll have to read it to find out. 
 
Meanwhile, Simon Hanselmann's Megahex is still on the list, two weeks in a row, making it one 'hot fortnight' for the people at the funny papers. So the lesson? 2014 loves anthropomorphic characters, be they child-appropriate or not. Pick up a copy of these two great to hold, even better to read graphic novels today!
