New Comics Day 12.3.14

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.  
 
Massive  
Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It 
edited by Anne Ishii and Graham Kolbeins

280-page black & white 7" x 10" softcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-785-7 

"The level of drawing in these erotic fantasies is extremely high, sometimes rivaling the work of the iconic Western porno artist Tom of Finland...The content of the stories in Massive is completely unlike the feathery romanticism of yaoi manga and anime. Rough, even sadistic sex takes the place of wistful longing." -Charles Solomon, IndieWire 
 
"Definitely the premiere manga release this week." –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

The Late Child and Otra 

180-page full color 8" x 10" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-789-5

"The Late Child is a rich and intelligent work, one of the lushest and most giving graphic novels in recent memory." -Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin  
 
"Marguerite's partner on these books as well as in life, Romberger, leaves his ink drawings open enough for her watercolors to capture various types of natural light during the day…It is a significantly gentler and more pastoral book, traditionally beautiful. Calling 7 Miles a Second "beautiful" would lead to smirking inwardly while waiting to be challenged; the book carries ugliness inside itself as part of its very being. While that book's language pushed forward with velocity and free association, this one places each considered thought into a caption to ring out poetically."–Brian Nicholson, Bookslut   
Zap Collection 
The Complete Zap Comix
by R. Crumb, Rick Griffin, Paul Mavrides, Victor Moscoso, Spain Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton, Robert Williams, and S. Clay Wilson

920-page black & white with color 9.75" x 13.25" x 7" hardcover • $500.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-787-1

"While the early issues stand as rowdy documents of the 1960s counterculture, Zap was also more. In reinventing the comic book, it set off legal battles and conversations over censorship, brought attention to cartoonists as artists, and set an example for generations of alternative comics creators like Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Joe Matt and the Hernandez Brothers." –Dana Jennings, The NY Times
 
"The Zapatistas were a sort of 'supergroup'-the dharma warriors of comics. Inkslingers. Revolutionaries. The best of the best. Their only yardsticks for comparison were each other and that sort of fraternal competition raised the bar and kept their art constantly evolving and their social satire razor sharp." –Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds
 
Zap Interviews 
The Comics Journal Library Vol. 9: Zap The Interviews 
edited by Michael Dean and Gary Groth 

264-page color/black & white 10" x 12"softcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-788-8

Cochlea & Eustachia 
Cochlea & Eustachia 
by Hans Rickheit 

80-page full color 8" x 10" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-801-4 

"…Hans Rickheit, a truly unique purveyor of the lovely and sinister." –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal
 
"looks to be equal parts mysterious body horror and Rickheit's typically uneasy blending of the sinister and the comforting." –Jason Giampaoli, Comics Bulletin

"The frighteningly hilarious world of Rickheit's is a deranged cabinet of curiosities... It would all be too oppressive if Rickheit's sense of humor weren't so addictive..." –Publishers Weekly

Vapor
Vapor
by Max

120-page black & white 7" x 9.75" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-460-3 

"Spanish cartoonist Max's graphic novel is ambiguous but powerful, leaving readers to wonder whether Nick is going crazy or finding enlightenment-or perhaps they're the same thing." –Cat Auer, Playboy (This Winter's Best Books)
 
"Max's latest graphic novel translated by Fantagraphics purifies and condenses his cartooning and thinking. Vapor charts the struggles and strange encounters of Nicodemos, a long-haired, long-nosed monk, who has quit the ‘gigantic muddle' of the world to seek transcendence in a desert through self-deprivations." –Paul Gravett  
 
Nancy Loves Sluggo
Nancy Loves Sluggo: Complete Dailies 1949-1951
by Ernie Bushmiller

336-page black & white with spot color 8.5" x 8.5" softcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-777-2
 
"The Nancy books are beautiful, and that work is such that it will be pulled from shelves and re-examined years after other collections, ostensibly more exciting this very minute, have worked their way to the sales box." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter
 
"Have you ever taken the time to read and devour Ernie Bushmiller's masterpiece Nancy. Deceptibly simple and oddly corny, it is surprisingly funny and a virtual textbook on comic storytelling." –Andy Mansell, Heroes Online

Black Light 
Black Light: The World of L.B. Cole 
Introduction by Bill Schelly 

272-page full color 9.25" x 13.25" softcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-762-8

"Black Light vows to burn out your eyes…" –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal
 
"His covers are really noir: spirals, figures falling down through space, big spider webs, just great... The colors are all totally primary: just bright red, blue, almost no subtle colors... they really work." - R. Crumb 
 
Heads or Tails
Heads or Tails (reprint)
by Lilli Carré

200-page full-color 7" x 9" softcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-597-6
 
"...[A] significant artist and engaging storyteller." - Robert Kirby, The Comics Journal
 
"Carré's work, fittingly titled Heads or Tails, probes choice, ambivalence and fate; in her stories, there's a flip side to everything, rendered in full and brilliant colour." -Laura Kane, The Toronto Star

Fantagraphics is thrilled to be part of the third annual Short Run Small Press Fest here in Seattle on Saturday, November 30th at historic Washington Hall in the Central District. Even though Short Run is a festival spotlighting self-published works, limited editions, and handmade books, Fantagraphics will have a presence in many, many ways, as you will see below...

• Visit the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery at Table L-51 on the first floor of Washington Hall! We'll have an excellent array of independent comics in stock from publishers who weren't able to make the trek to Seattle, like Koyama Press, Uncivilized Books, PictureBox, and more.

Plus, throughout the day, Manager/Curator Larry Reid will be joined by special guests who got their start in small press: our own Ellen Forney, who self-published her title I Was Seven in '75 with a Xeric Grant, and Bruce Pavitt, co-founder of Sub Pop Records, which started as a zine back in 1979. Stop by the table for a chat -- all three of them have tons of experience and knowledge about self-publishing that they'd love to share with you!

•  All throughout the day, Short Run will be screening animation, including pieces from our own Dash Shaw and Lilli Carré, alongside Reel Grrls, SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team), and dozens of other animators from around the country. Screenings take place on the balcony level of Washington Hall.

•  Many Fantagraphics artists will be exhibiting with tables of their own, including legends like Peter Bagge [A-4], Jim Woodring [C-13], Jim Blanchard [A-3], and Michael Dowers [as Brownfield Press, B-6], alongside up-and-coming artists like Josh Simmons [D-18], Nate Neal [coming all the way from Brooklyn! C-15], Julia Gfrörer [E-24], and Mome veterans Andrice Arp [F-27] and T Edward Bak [J-45]. PHEW!

• Fantagraphics staffers Jason T Miles [C-11] and Jen Vaughn [landing] will be exhibiting with comics of their own!

• And then there's the panels (all taking place on the first floor)!

---> 12:20 PM: Women in Comics // Our own Megan Kelso will lead and moderate a panel focused on the females with panelists Geneviève Castrée, Gabrielle Gamboa, Roberta Gregory, Julia Gfrörer, and Virginia Paine. I have to say, Megan has been doing some amazing planning and research for this panel, and it is not to be missed!

---> 2:40 PM : The World of Comics // A survey of comics around the globe with Jason T Miles, Pat Moriarity, David Lasky, and Leonard Rifas. (Inspired by our own Kim Thompson.)

But, wait! There's more... The day before Short Run Small Press Fest, Friday, November 29th, they'll be hosting Read/Write, a day of panels, workshops, and more at the Vera Project, including... 

---> 2:00 PM : DIY Publishing in the Digital Age Panel // With our Associate Editor Eric Reynolds, plus Bruce Rutledge (Chin Music Press), self-publisher Alec Longstreth, and moderator Zack Soto (Study Group).

•  And for full-disclosure, I, Janice, your friendly Flogger, should mention I'm one of the organizers this year, so there's that...!

For the complete Short Run Seattle schedule, including Read/Write on Friday, November 29th at the Vera Project [ Warren & Republican Ave North ], and Short Run Small Press Fest on Saturday, November 30th at Washington Hall [ 153 14th Avenue ], visit shortrun.org! Both events are FREE and open to the public! See you there!

"AAIEEE!!!!!!"

...is just what you'll say when you check out this latest art exhibit at the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin!

Helleon Jo Banner

Today SPX, Small Press Expo, released the nominees for the Ignatz Awards given out the Saturday of the show, September 14th. We have quite a few cartoonists listed and are so excited for them. Their amazing work speaks for itself but a nice brick award (based the Krazay Kat and Ignatz) is always helpful makes you look tough as hell next to your drawing table. Attendees of SPX are given ballots so start walking NOW to Bethesda and you'll get there in time.

Prison Pit by Johnny Ryan continues to kill it and is nominated for Outstanding Series!

TEOTFW 16  TEOTFW graphic novel
