Massive is about the history and art of gay manga and the men who make it, and this launch party is about the people who love it! Stop by after 7 pm for a signing and a good time.

They will be focusing on Lucy's two latest releases with Fantagraphics, An Age of License and her newest, Displacement.

75 years ago, in 1940, as the Nazi conquest of Europe continued and the Battle of Britain raged, the United States watched from the sidelines while instituting the first peacetime draft. At the same time, the world of comics was experiencing an incredible sustained period of invention, as The Joker, Robin, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman, the Spirit, Catwoman, and Captains America and Marvel all debuted! (Not to mention the debuts of pop culture icons Bugs Bunny, and Brenda Starr, and classic movies Fantasia and The Great Dictator!) Showing and discussing historical and cultural factors that made that year so important is a panel including Ben Katchor (Hand-Drying in America; Parsons/The New School), Sherri Craig (Southeastern Louisiana University), Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson (granddaughter of the founder of DC Comics, about whom she's co-writing an upcoming book), Dr. Travis Langley (author of Batman and Psychology), Marguerite Van Cook (The Late Child and Other Animals), and Danny Fingeroth (co-editor of The Stan Lee Universe).

This week's figgy pudding of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier SchrauwenReview: Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen

"Olivier Schrauwen's Arsène Schrauwen is one of the most complex, and simply best, comics released this year. " – Hillary Brown, Paste Magazine

"In this crackpot graphic novel from the historically minded and utterly original Schrauwen, the Belgian cartoonist imagines a fanciful history that slips the bonds of reality almost immediately." – Publisher's Weekly

"Cockeyed, adventurous, and truly bizarre, the first full graphic novel from the Belgian cartoonist sets out to dramatize the heartsick youthful folly of the artist’s dim but determined grandfather." – Sean Rogers, The Globe and Mail

 

Bumf Vol. 1: I Buggered the Kaiser by Joe SaccoReview: Bumf Vol. 1: I Buggered the Kaiser by Joe Sacco

"BUMF is a delirious exercise in mashup, working in references to 9/11, the Kaiser, 'Bunga Bunga,' drone strikes, Nixon's enemies list, the street execution of Nguyễn Văn Lém in Vietnam, Abu Ghraib, black sites, the Checkers speech, 'Mission Accomplished,' the NSA, and whatever other outrage happened to cross Sacco’s field of vision." – Martin Schneider, Dangerous Minds

"Its imagery is what you might have imagined listening to a Firesign album through headphones in a darkened room…It's an odyssey through an inner space where you can open a door and find yourself at the Battle of Verdun." – R. Fiore, The Comics Journal

 

The Late Child and Other Animals by Marguerite Van Cook and James RombergerReview: The Late Child and Other Animals by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger

"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

  

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

"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

 

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans RickheitReview: Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit

"Originally a webcomic, this new graphic novel from Fantagraphics follows two identical women, Cochlea and Eustachia…who wear domino masks and only the top half of their lingerie while wandering curiously, but without any real intentions, through a dream-like environment that mixes French nouveau, steampunk, Joel-Peter Witkin, Sigmund Freud, MC Escher, and lots of weird creatures." – Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

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 
NYC: New School presents Marguerite Van Cook
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Marguerite Van CookJames Rombergerevents 1 Dec 2014 12:34 PM
The Late Child
The New York Comics and Picture Symposium welcomes Marguerite Van Cook on the week of her graphic novel coming out to comic stores everywhere (and birthday!). Van Cook will be presenting at the 110th meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium  held on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 7 pm at Parsons The New School, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby). Free and open to the public. Please note 7 pm starting time.

Van Cook will read from and discuss her original graphic autobiography The Late Child and Other Animals, accompanied by a slide show of images from the book. The book is written and colored by Van Cook and adapted to the comics form and drawn by artist James Romberger.

A decade after Hetty Martin survives the bombing of Portsmouth by the Nazis in World War II, she gives birth to a child out of wedlock, Marguerite. Now Hetty must go before a tribunal to prove that she is a fit mother. From there, The Late Child and Other Animals tells the story of Marguerite's childhood in the recovering British naval port and the rural beauty of the Isle of Wight and in Normandy, France. The journeys and struggles over decades of this mother and daughter are linked in five episodes that veer between lyricism, wry wit, and harrowing suspense.

Innocents
Marguerite Van Cook came to New York her punk with band The Innocents, after touring the UK with The Clash. She stayed and opened the seminal installation gallery Ground Zero with her partner James Romberger. Her own works as an artist and filmmaker have placed her in many museum collections.

Late Child Flowers
Her current generational graphic memoir The Late Child and Other Animals with Romberger has been translated and published in France under the title L'Enfant inattendue. Her color work on the graphic memoir 7 Miles a Second, a collaborative project with James Romberger and the late David Wojnarowicz garnered her a nomination for an 2014 Eisner award for Best Painter/Multimedia Artist. Read more at her website.

James Romberger‘s ecological comic Post York was published in 2012 by Uncivilized Books; it includes a flexi-disc by his son Crosby and it was nominated for an 2013 Eisner award for Best Single Issue. Romberger collaborated with Marguerite Van Cook and the late writer, artist and AIDS activist David Wojnarowicz on the critically acclaimed graphic novel 7 Miles A Second, which was first published in 1996 by DC/Vertigo and then released in a revised, expanded edition in February 2013 by Fantagraphics Books.
