Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Richard SalaNew Comics DayJacques TardiDisneyCarl Barks 16 Oct 2014 11:33 AM
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.
 
Bumf  
Bumf Vol. 1: I Buggered the Kaiser
by Joe Sacco

100-page black & white 6.625" x 10.5" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-748-2 
 
"the artist is heading back to his underground roots, citing the influence of ZAP and Weirdo and promising an exuberant, satirical and confrontational read…It'll be interesting to see how well the established audience for Sacco's journo-comix respond to this change of tone." –Tom Murphy, Broken Frontier
 
Carl Barks 
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 14)
by Carl Barks

240-page full color 7.5" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-795-6

"Before this point, most Uncle Scrooge stories played off of his greed and paranoia about safeguarding his wealth from the dastardly Beagle Boys, but this shift towards treasure hunting would be the way forward for the comics for decades, eventually inspiring the popular Duck Tales cartoon series in the 1980s." -Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

In a Glass Grotesquely
In a Glass Grotesquely
by Richard Sala

136-page full color 7" x 7" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-797-0 

"To read a Richard Sala comic is an experience both jarring and fun. Good for a rainy day or a stormy night." - Publisher's Weekly

WWII Tardi
Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War!
by Jacques Tardi

260-page black & white with color 8.25" x 10.75" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-769-7 
 
"Tardi is unremitting in his focus on the small, human details of the catastrophe-not just the look of uniforms and weaponry, but the way one soldier advances in an awkward, stiff-armed posture, 'protecting my belly with the butt of the rifle,' and the way another makes sculptures and rings from discarded shells, to sell to his comrades." - Gabriel Winslow-Yost, The New York Review of Books

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.
The Lonesome Go
The Lonesome Go
by Tim Lane

296-page black & white/color 8" x 10.75" softcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-754-3
 
"[Tim Lane] is part of the tradition of American authors, like Nelson Algren, John Fante and Raymond Carver, able to carve out small slices of down-and-out despair with sensitivity, perception and pathos, and, quite often, a touch of sinister, damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't humor." –Harris Smith, comiXology
 
"Visually, Lane seems to channel parts of Dan Clowes, Charles Burns and various American Splendor contributors. Lane's stories are admittedly dark, but also keenly aware that there is something inherently nostalgic about traveling America, alone or with complete strangers. The result is a book that is, like a road trip, as freeing as it can be unsettling." –Seth Peagler, Heroes Online
Doctors   
Doctors
by Dash Shaw

96-page full color 6" x 8" softcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-803-8

"[Doctors] reaffirms my faith in the importance of stories. Dash Shaw captures the complexity and contradictions of being alive, and places that alongside an incredible portrait of the art of survival, which we all practice with varying degrees of success." - Sam LeBas, Multiversity Comics
Supertrash
 
Broken Frontier's Frederik Hautain enjoys "how little genre boundaries mean to a restless experimenter like Shaw." 
Hip Hop Family Tree  
Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set
by Ed Piskor

248-page full color 9.125" x 13.25" softcover • $59.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-791-8 

"Piskor reconceives hip-hop's formative years as a vast collective awakening, a shift in consciousness, as if - as in the New York Dolls' "Frankenstein" or George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards novels - something happened over Manhattan, spreading mutant powers across the city and the world like a benign pandemic." –Alex Pappademas, Grantland

"A superhero-riffing, world-building, toe-tapping, beat-hitting story of a whole lot of people, some brilliant, some lucky, some crazy, and some all of the above. And if you like hip-hop, and nice things, go buy the cased edition because there's a special secret ‘zine in it about Rob Liefeld and Easy E that is just super fabulous. Ed's art is clear, full of personality, and utterly meticulous in how it is presented."  –Alex de Campi, 13th Dimension
 
Snoopy's Thanksgiving
Snoopy's Thanksgiving
by Charles M. Schulz

64-page black & white with spot color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $9.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-778-9

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

220-page full color 8" x 8" softcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-738-3

"[Editor Jacques Boyreau] has a knack for picking images; much like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart and hardcore porn, Boyreau knows it when he sees it. And luckily, he shares it, this time from the visual-presentation experts of Fantagraphics Books - a match made in poster-art heaven." - Bookgasm

"Makes Antonin Artaud look like a picture of mental health." - Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Derrida Reframed: A Guide for the Visual Arts Student

by Lucy Knisley

196-page black & white with color 5.5" x 7.5" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-768-0

"Like the best travelogues, An Age of License shows you what it would be like to visit a place while reminding you that you can never have the same experience...This book is more thought-provoking than her other works, demonstrating growth and a challenge to readers to think about these things in their own lives." –Johanna Carlson-Draper, Comics Worth Reading

"Knisley is a pleasurable picture-maker and there are hooks here in that she talks in forthright fashion about an affair she had while over there (a forthcoming book is about her marriage, which has to imminent) and she engages directly with the issue of privilege as it pertains to her ability to take trips like this one." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

Don Rosa  

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of the Sun
by Don Rosa

208-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-742-0

"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." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

Megahex
by Simon Hanselmann

212-page full color 6" x 8.75" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-743-7 

"Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank God I don't ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again." - Daniel Clowes

"Megahex is basically about a bunch of people (and "people") watching TV and getting wasted and fighting and fucking and pranking each other. Oh, and depression. What's not to love?!" - Peter Bagge

It's not listed on the Diamond Previews list for 8.20.14 but we check it's individual book page and it says August 20th!

by Ed Piskor

112-page full color 9" x 13" softcover • $27.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-756-7 

"The book is an absolute essential for any hip hop head to read and any comic book fan to gander over." - Mass Appeal

"...Presents the facts in a nostalgic, faded-ink and rubbery realism of '70s Marvel Comics style, turning raps early innovators into larger than life heroes of history." - Spin Magazine

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin <
Waiting for the Great Pumpkin
by Charles M. Schulz  

64-page black & white with spot color 5.75" x 5.75" hardcover • $9.99

Jim  

224-page black & white/color 7.75" x 11" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-752-9

"Jim Woodring is one of our greatest cartoonists, and these are some of his greatest comics. There are two or three potential top 25 all-time comics shorts in here." -Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter 
 
"Fantagraphics hardcover collection of Jim Woodring's personal, allegorical and autobiographical comics from the '80s & '90s, works which proved very mind-expanding to me, personally, through their treatment of conscious and subconscious realities as equally pertinent to funnybook memoir. Some of them are also really, REALLY funny - proper ‘alternative comics'-era classics in here!" –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

Wandering Son 7
Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko / 放浪息子) Vol. 7
by Shimura Takako

220-page black & white (with some color) 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-750-5 

"...[L]ike the best coming-of-age stories - comics or otherwise - Wandering Son is meticulously accurate in its details, but universal in its emotions. Gay or not, readers shouldn't find it too difficult to identify with kids who feel like their bodies and their friends are equally culpable in the worst kind of betrayal, preventing them from realizing the potential they see in themselves." - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club 

Heroes of the Comics
Heroes of the Comics: Portraits of the Legends of Comic Books
by Drew Friedman
184-page full color 9" x 12" hardcover • $34.99

152-page color/b&w 7.75" x 10.125" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-740-6

"A mix of evocative, geometric watercolors and fluid pen-and-ink cartoons, How to Be Happy tells stories of sad people, lonely people, strong people, confident people, all trying to find a tiny bit of happiness in life...Davis' clever and sometimes jaw-droppingly beautiful artwork makes those stories feel real." - Dan Kois, Slate Book Review

"This collection of short stories about people desperately trying to suppress or embrace or just somehow deal with all the difficult emotions careening around in their brain just underscores what those who have seen Davis' work in scattered anthologies already suspected: that she is a tremendous talent, and one of the smartest voices working in comics today." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6

Gast
by Carol Swain

176-page black & white 7.5" x 10" softcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-755-0 

"When she made her debut in the late 1980s, with a prolific burst of anthologised short stories and her own Way Out Strips comics, her unique style already seemed fully formed: spare, oblique, atmospheric and textured, characterised by an air of mystery and an a seam of dry, humour." –Tom Murphy, Broken Frontier
 
"I suspect this will be one of those wonderful slow-burners that, as you flip through each page slowly but inexorably draws you in and immerses you." –Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet

ISBN: 978-1-60699-735-2

"Prince Valiant is captivating and countercultural... Fantagraphics has been reissuing the original Prince Valiant strips in hardbound editions-exquisitely drawn tales, stories that celebrate chivalry, adventure, bravery...and gentlemanly romance." –Mark Judge, The Catholic Register

ISBN: 978-1-60699-751-2

"For fans of pulpy storytelling, fans of silly action, and fans of fans, this book is the gem you must seek." - Jake Austen, Chicago Tribune

32 page full color 6.5" x 10" comic • $5.00
 
Praise for Cosplayers 1:
"This comic looks to both examine and excise our notions of otaku, nerds, geeks, and the like. Cosplayers will strike a chord with anyone who turns to reading as an escape, be they lit-nerd, comic geek, messageboard troll, or a little mixture of all of the above." - HTML Giant

"It's a clever idea, and Shaw brings surprising insight to the very short stories. He uses different panel configurations and color palettes to break each story up into scenes, as if they were movies themselves, and his deft linework makes it all look easy." -Bridgid Alverson, Robot 6
