OCD Extra: November Booklist Reviews
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under PeanutsOCDEd PiskorCharles Burns 14 Nov 2014 1:46 PM
This month's issue of Booklist will include reviews of recent releases by a Fantagraphics creator, excerpted below: 
Hip Hop Family Tree  
"The second collection of Piskor's hip-hop history in comics may be a better place to start reading it than the first....Piskor's Jack Kirby-ish drawing chops-monumental figures in thrusting, dynamic action; flat colors that crush perspective-constitute precisely the sturdy vehicle to carry it as far as Piskor will take it." –Ray Olson
"Peanuts' enduring appeal is timeless and universal, and this handsomely designed volume only enhances its allure... This era…seesthe introduction of such annual events as the futile vigil for the Great Pumpkin and the Christmas pageant, as well as the birth of Charlie Brown's sister, Sally."
–Gordon Flagg 


Fantagraphics dominates NY Times Best Seller List
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Walt KellyPeanutsDon RosaDisneyCharles M Schulz 10 Nov 2014 11:50 AM
Best Seller
This week, Fantagraphics topped the NY Times Best Seller list in hardback graphic novels. Four of our new releases landed on the list: In the number one position was Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Strips Vol. 3 "Evidence to the Contrary" by Walt KellyThis volume features daily and Sunday strips (in full color) from 1953-1954. Kelly introduces one of his boldest political caricatures, the insidious Simple J. Malarkey. Seminole Sam scams, Churchy La Femme cross-dresses, P.T. Bridgeport returns and more.
 Pogo Vol. 3 Peanuts
N0. 2 on the Best Seller list was The Complete Peanuts 1991-1994 Gift Box Set by Charles M. Schulz. There's a reason this two-some is so popular; the books are full of surprises for the most ardent Peanuts fan and Schulz's humor is unrestrained and glorious. There is a charmingly odd story of when the school bus never comes, full-on Waiting for Godot. In addition, Charlie Brown finally FINALLY hits a home run but the entire story is worth the boxset. 
Rosa Box Set 
At spot 3 is Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Libary Volumes 1 + 2 Gift Box Set including "Return to Plain Awful" and "Son of the Sun". Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns!  Duckburg's richest tycoon is on the hunt for legendary square eggs - and he's bringing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie along, in the sequel to "Lost in the Andes"! 
 Peanuts
And at spot 6 is the single volume of The Complete Peanuts Vol. 22 1993-1994 by Charles M. Schulz. Complete with the homerun, the bus that wouldn't come PLUS Snoopy makes a run for the Supreme Court and battles pneumonia.
 
The week these four books came out, we had about 54 pounds of graphic novels, comic strips and reprints come out so we still a bit shocked to have so many titles on the list (but not so shocked when you consider the awesome comics). Gary and Eric did some deadlifts just to see if they could guess the weight of the releases from Wednesday, October 22nd.

We'll keep printing if you keep a-reading!

This week's hauntingly spooktacular collection of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

The Complete Zap ComixReview: The Complete Zap Comix

"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 Lonesome Go by Tim LaneReview: The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane

"Lane’s fluency in portraiture, page layout, lettering, and storytelling is on display, as deep contextual details are crammed into tight panels and captions." – Dominic Umile, Hyperallergic

 

Set to Sea [Softcover Ed.] by Drew WeingReview: Set to Sea [Softcover Ed.] by Drew Weing

"A true graphic odyssey which any lover of a dream-life must see, this eternally fresh yet solid entertainment is a genuine 'must read'." – Win Wiacek, Now Read This!

 

Heroes of the Comics: Portraits of the Legends of Comic Books by Drew FriedmanCommentary: Heroes of the Comics: Portraits of the Legends of Comic Books by Drew Friedman

"The portraits are a genuine insight and reflection of the person and their contribution. Special kudos to Drew for his careful research so that the bios are accurate and help to add to the ongoing study of how it all began in comics." – Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson, The Beat

 

Megahex by Simon HanselmannInterview: Megahex by Simon Hanselmann

"He doesn't just draw the funny or sexy moments -- he lets the characters and the readers enjoy and laugh, but then he shows the fallout from some of the characters' actions, depicting them as them scared and desperate, pathetic and troubled. Hanselmann's skill at depicting this range of emotions and exploring those consequences is what makes his work so fascinating and so worth rereading." – Alex Dueben, Comic Book Resources

 

Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Tony Millionaire and Matt DannerReview: Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Tony Millionaire and Matt Danner

"Like the very best children’s classics, this is a book that isn’t afraid to confront dark matters and actively embraces fear and sadness amidst the wonders in an effort to craft a better story.

Compelling, beguiling and visually intoxicating, this latest Sock Monkey yarn judiciously leavens discovery with anxiety, heartbreak with gleeful imaginative innocence and terror with bold triumph." – Win Wiacek, Now Read This!

 

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful by Don RosaPlug: Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful by Don Rosa

"Let me be perfectly clear: The Don Rosa & Carl Barks Duck books are as good as comics get. Period. Nothing surpasses – only matches – the pure imagination, humor, adventure, and heart of these Donald Duck & Uncle Scrooge stories." – Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics

Plug: "Any time a Carl Barks or Don Rosa book of Donald Duck or Uncle Scrooge comics is released, I get all excited. Because they’re great! I’m not kidding! Also good for jaded fans too cool for kids’ comics." – Dan Greenfield, 13th Dimension

 

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin by Charles M. SchulzReview: Waiting for the Great Pumpkin by Charles M. Schulz

"This adorable little collection of strips is the perfect prize for your costume contest. Growing up, you may have gotten to know the Great Pumpkin mainly through the evergreen TV special — but the original strips collected here are both brainier and more emotionally complex than the show." – Etelka Lehoczky, NPR

Even the most devoted Peanuts fan will be surprised by revisiting Schulz's last decade of work. Schulz's cartooning has never been more expressive, and his sense of humor never more unencumbered by formula or tradition. In one sequence, the gang waits... and waits... for a school bus that never comes. Another shockingly showcases Charlie Brown hitting a game-winning home run — off Roy Hobbs's great-granddaughter? Then, Linus lobbies the White House to nominate Snoopy for a Supreme Court seat (it would go to Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Woodstock discovers his long-lost grandfather's diary, detailing a hard life in captivity (birdcage). Snoopy lands in the hospital with pneumonia, and all three of his brothers — Andy, Spike, and Olaf — come pay their respects. This is the 22nd volume (of 25) of the bestselling series collecting every single one of the 18,000-plus strips created by Schulz from 1950-2000.
