New Comics Day 9.17.13
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Peter BaggeNew Comics DayDrew Friedman 17 Sep 2013 6:35 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.  
Everybody is Stupid Except for Me  
 
"Collecting 10 years' worth of cartoons originally done for Reason magazine, as well as a few odds and sods, [Everybody Is Stupid Except for Me] finds Bagge as sharp and irate as ever, and his art has improved while still being recognizably his own. Bagge is also, thankfully, still possessed of a great sense of humor, especially about himself-even the title reveals an element of self-mockery among all the self-righteousness." - The A.V. Club  
 
"While his focus may have changed, his work remains as delightful as it did in the alt-comix heyday. Stupid just confirms what many of us already knew: he's still one of the funniest cartoonists in America today." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6 
 
Barracuda in the Attic

208-page black & white 6" x 8.5" hardcover • $26.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-650-8
 
"A detail-rich account of an unfathomably awesome childhood in the epicenter of 1960s - 1970s New York culture, and further evidence of the magnificence of the Friedman genes." - Daniel Clowes

"I always wanted to know what it would be like to grow up with a famous dad. It sounds as awesome as i feared. I really enjoyed reading Kipp Friedman's stories and hating him for having dinner at Groucho Marx's house." - Joel Stein, Time magazine columnist

New School 
by Dash Shaw

340-page full-color 8.75" x 11.25" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-644-7

"Instead of a tidy narrative, [New School] is about art, about the art that's in the book itself...There's stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the leve of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say....This book is just fascinating." –Glen Weldon, NPR

"The experience of reading New School is like temporarily inhabiting the body and brain of an artist: This is what growing up might feel like for someone who lives and breathes colors and shapes. It's heady, hallucinatory, and bizarre, but it's grounded in the simple experience of growing up in the shadow of a beloved older sibling." -Allison Hallett, Portland Mercury
