Spawn of Mars
Time to sync your watches at 3....2.....1....set! The newest EC Comics Library book, Spawn of Mars and Other Stories, is now available at comiXology for when you're jet-setting around the stars. Wallace (Wally) Wood fans love his sleek, preternaturally lush art, but they especially love the wonderment of his spectacular science fiction. This highly anticipated mouth-watering collection features over two dozen stories brimming with Wood's meticulously detailed, genre-defining brushwork-all save the one Wood wrote himself on the typewriter of EC editor Al Feldstein. And with titles like "Spawn of Mars," "The Dark Side of the Moon," "A Trip to a Star," "The Invaders," "The Secret of Saturn's Ring," and "The Two-Century Journey," how can you go wrong? This is EC science fiction at its finest. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Spawn of Mars and Other Stories features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic comic book masterpieces.

So set your ship on auto-pilot (as long as you're not in a meteor field) or tell your captain you'll be planet-side for a little while longer to enjoy all 240 pages of fun for only $22.99
EC Comics 
"Wood's work seemed like snapshots of a lush and vibrant reality where even madmen, monsters and mayhem possessed a stately grace. There might be pandemonium but, oddly, the panic never seemed to reach the eyes of Wood's regal heroes." - Geoff Boucher, The Los Angeles Times

"Legendary artist [Wally] Wood mastered every comic-book genre - humor (he was one of Mad's first artists), horror, superheroes, war - but is best known for the 1950s science-fiction stories he drew for EC Comics, in which, one commentator noted, he 'began drawing things into panels that no human being seemed capable of before.' His heroic spacemen, intricate rocket ships, and frightening aliens embodied classic space opera, and his influence remains visible in the work of many leading comics artists today." - Gordon Flagg, Booklist

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.
Foolbert Funnies
Foolbert Funnies: Histories and Other Fictions 
by Frank Stack 

224-page black & white 7.75" x 10" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-808-3

"Foolbert Funnies is a definitive collection of comic art by one of the quirkiest and most intriguing artists to emerge from undergrounds. As a former college art professor, Frank Stack brought a unique approach to his art, blazing his own trail. And what could be more appropriate for an underground comics cartoonist than that?" –Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Spawn of Mars  
Spawn of Mars  
by Wallace Wood and Al Feldstein

216-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-805-2
 
"…the reason I'm almost guaranteed to eventually pick this up: shelf porn. I'd probably buy 'Wally Wood sci-fi reprints' as a digest, but this is going to eventually look so damn good on the oversized shelf. It's the smuggest reason to buy anything ever, but I don't care." –Jim Dandendeau, Topless Robot

Valentine
A Valentine for Charlie Brown
by Charles M. Schulz

72-page two color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover
$9.99 | 978-1-60699-804-5

"Schulz was truly one of the game's great ambassadors." - Former National Baseball Hall of Fame President Dale Petroskey

"Novelty Peanuts books are the best kind of novelty book." - The Comics Reporter

Wallace Wood fans love his sleek, preternaturally lush art, but they especially love the wonderment of his spectacular science fiction. This highly anticipated mouth-watering collection features over two dozen stories brimming with Wood’s meticulously detailed, genre-defining brushwork—all save the one Wood wrote himself on the typewriter of EC editor Al Feldstein. And with titles like "Spawn of Mars," "The Dark Side of the Moon," "A Trip to a Star," "The Invaders," "The Secret of Saturn's Ring," and "The Two-Century Journey," how can you go wrong? This is EC science fiction at its finest. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Spawn of Mars and Other Stories features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic comic book masterpieces.

The 1950s were also a launching pad for some of the greatest comic book artists in history, many of whom worked for EC—including Wallace Wood, whose hypnotically detailed, lushly expressive brushwork brought to life menacing thugs, ominous cityscapes, and small-town America, as well as Everymen grappling with profound moral issues—not to mention some of the most heart-stoppingly beautiful women ever to sashay across a comic book page.

Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Spawn of Mars features extensive essays and notes on these classic stories by EC experts—but the real "meat" of the matter (sometimes literally, in the grislier stories) is supplied by these often lurid, sometimes downright over-the-top, but always compelling and superbly crafted, classic comic-book masterpieces.
