New Comics Day 9.11.13
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Shimura TakakoJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezBlake BellBill Everett 10 Sep 2013 4:09 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. 

Love and Rockets: The Covers
Love and Rockets: The Covers
by Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez

144-page full-color 10.25" x 13.25" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-598-3

"As you might expect, Love And Rockets: The Covers is very attractive, very well-put together, and the fact that the production values on display flatter the work inside gives you an idea of just how far ahead of the curve the Hernandez Brothers could work at times." -Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter  

"Love and Rockets #1 is marvelous. I hope one day to attain the level of the cover drawing myself... it is a perfect drawing." - Moebius, 1982

Wandering Son Vol 5

Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko / 放浪息子) Vol. 5
by Shimura Takako

228-page black & white (with some color) 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-647-8

"...what continues to make Wandering Son a fantastic read is the frankness it presents developmental sexual identity...Few comics will challenge you like Wandering Son. It covers a topic not widely written about or discussed, and does so in a tactful, warm, embracing manner." -Nick Rowe, Read Comic Books

"While most manga about cross-dressing involve lots of shrieking and embarrassment, Wandering Son takes a quieter, more introspective approach.... It's a very sweet manga with realistic characters - no dead parents or crazy teachers, just ordinary, loving families and supportive friends. This manga is a beautifully produced, hardcover book, and... it's worth every penny." - Brigid Alverson, MTV Geek 

Heroic Tales

Heroic Tales: The Bill Everett Archives Vol. 2
by Bill Everett; edited by Blake Bell

248-page full-color 7.25" x 10" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-600-3"

"For fans of comics from the dawn of the comic book era, this book is an indispensable gift from Blake Bell and Fantagraphics." - Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

"What's exciting for me about this book is watching Everett develop as an artist and storyteller and figure out the medium in relatively rapid fashion.... What you see here are the glimmers of an artist struggling to comprehend the potential of this relatively new medium [and] how he can push it to match his own interests." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6

 






Maria M. Book 1 by Gilbert Hernandez - First Look
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Love and RocketsGilbert HernandezComing Attractions 5 Sep 2013 5:49 PM

Maria M. cover

Maria M. pages

Maria M. Book 1 is the sensational story of a woman who runs from a shady past in Latin America, only to fall in with American gangsters and a new world of drugs, violence and sleaze.

It is also a retelling of the classic Love and Rockets story "Poison River," adapted as a b-movie starring the protagonist's own daughter, Fritz (and presented in comics format, in two parts, with Book 2 due in 2015).

It is also part of a larger narrative tapestry which has been unfolding for years and continues in the upcoming Love and Rockets: New Stories #6.

This new original graphic novel by Gilbert Hernandez takes his metafictional "Fritz B-Movie" concept to a bold new level, and can also be enjoyed out of context on its own merits. We'll have more previews for you between now and its scheduled release in November.

Love and Rockets: The Covers
by Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez

144-page full-color 10.25" x 13.25" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-598-3

Five women stand in a police lineup; four of them are garishly dressed super-women — perfectly normal, because this is, after all, the cover of a comic book. A closer look, however, reveals a fifth woman who seems thoroughly out of place — mousy, in a bathrobe and curlers, smoking a cigarette. Surely she's here by mistake — or is she?

From this very first cover of the very first issue of Love and Rockets in 1982, Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez (along with their brother, Mario) have created artwork that has subverted, contradicted and celebrated the history of comics while making it their own.

For the first time, these iconic comic book covers from the original Love and Rockets comic book series (and the earliest trade paperbacks) have been restored and collected.

This is a gorgeous, oversized art book and the perfect gift for fans of the series that virtually defines alternative comics.

Gilbert Hernandez and Jason return to comiXology with new comics
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under JasonGilbert Hernandezdigital comicscomiXology 21 Aug 2013 1:00 PM

Children of Palomar on Ipad

This digital drop Wednesday brings you two comics from two masters, Gilbert Hernandez and Jason. With a same day and date release as the print version, The Children of Palomar is Gilbert Hernandez's much-anticipated return to the small Central American town of Palomar. Originally released as a three-issue magazine series titled New Tales of Old Palomar in the acclaimed international "Ignatz" format, these stories are finally collected into one handsome book. All of these stories deal with the classic characters of Palomar (and stand alone from the series) such as sweet Pipo, her sharp-tongue sister Carmen, sheriff Chelo, and the gang of boys who help start it all: studious Heraclio, tall and fey Israel, disfigured but goodnatured Vicente, and girl-crazy Jesús and Satch.

"As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts." - San Francisco Chronicle

Lost Cat

The new graphic novel, Lost Cat, by Jason is both a playful take on the classic detective story. A detective happens to find a lost cat and finds that he and the woman to whom he returns it have a lot in common. They agree to meet again... but she's disappeared. Isolation and memory intertwine in the longest story by Jason to date. 

"Jason is one of the few artists (or writers) who can make existential aches seem droll, but it makes the smiles being provoked feel as honest as the ones we get when standing across from someone who makes the world feel a little less lonely." -David Barry, The National Post

by Al Feldstein

216-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-659-1

by Johnny Craig

208-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99

Mysteries are unfolding just outside the isolated Latin American hamlet of Palomar which will forever change the lives of its residents. Two wild children who live huddling in a small beach cave streak through town as barely visible blurs, stealing food. Hopeful men dynamite a boulder to tap a precious water supply. While exploring a desolate, lightning-wracked plain gashed by a yawning chasm, a group of boys is abducted by an encampment of strange visitors with the power to induce visions of death. Taking the form of a shadowy baby who only appears to childless women, a giant statue comes to life and haunts the village. And a fateful, cataclysmic confrontation takes place on a shoreline cliff.

Gilbert Hernandez returns to his seminal "Heartbreak Soup" milieu from the earliest issues of Love and Rockets in four interconnected, decade-spanning stories that comprise this graphic novel set in the legendary town of Palomar, where the supernatural is as commonplace as -- and sometimes indistinguishable from -- ordinary reality.
