Never before released digitally from the genius, sick and twisted mind of Jacques Boyreau comes SupertrashSexyTime and Portable Grindhouse. Supertrash, mutagenic sequel to Trash: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters (2002, Chronicle), the book that became a prophecy of the lasting influence of grindhouse and a model describing the shared evolution between art and trash. SexyTime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur is a fun romp through pre-digital 70s porn posters for the informed. The long sold-out Portable Grindhouse: The Lost Art of the VHS Box reprints some of the most louche, decadent, minimo-pervo artwork to ever grace a VHS box, featuring such movies as From Beyond, Penitentiary II, Beast of the Yellow Night, Cop Killers, Bay of Blood, Escape from Death Row, and Cocaine Wars.

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

With Halloween approaching, it's a good time to consider some spooky favorites from Fantagraphics Books.

 Big_Baby2  Ghost_World2

The formative work of Charles Burns in Big Baby foreshadows the brilliance that would follow. Alluring stories like "Curse of the Molemen," "Blood Club," and "Teen Plague" remain creepy and compelling while exploring themes of adolescent angst. Ghost World by Daniel Clowes is a similarly insightful examination of the otherworldly imaginations of its youthful protagonists. It remains among the greatest graphic novels - and film adaptations - of all time.

Pim_Francie2 

Al Columbia's Pim & Francie is at first blush a collection of meticulously rendered drawings, but a closer examination reveals a seductive narrative involving a cute cartoon couple caught in a world of horrific nightmares.

 Ghost_in_the_Grotto2

Ghost of the Grotto by comics genius Carl Barks is a playful adventure set in an exotic island locale, sure to appeal to kids and adults alike. See also The Old Castle's Secret for more fowl frights.

Megahex2   Amateurs2

A misanthropic witch wrestles with real world issues in Simon Hanselmann's Megahex and surreal horror unfolds in The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte as two butchers are afflicted with a mysterious case of amnesia. Meat these amazing artists this Saturday at Fantagraphics Bookstore.

Fall2014_front2    October_2014_Art_Attack_low_copy

More terrifying tales can be found in Ben Catmull's Ghosts and Ruins, Gary Panter's Jimbo in Purgatory, the EC Comics Library from midcentury America's masters of macabre, Weird Horrors & Daring Adventures: The Joe Kubert Archive Vol. 1 edited by Bill SchellyBlacklung by Chris WrightR.I.P by Thomas Ott, and everything by Richard Sala.

See Previews / Order Now

The latest book from the author of THE HIDDEN and DELPHINE contains the epic 115-page tale of a modern master-criminal. Following in the bloody footsteps of super-fiends such as Fantomas, Fu Manchu, or Professor Moriarty, Super-Enigmatix is ruthless, cunning, and thoroughly evil. His only goal is to spread fear and cause chaos — but does he want to destroy civilization, or save it? Not even his loyal army of female commandos can guess his real motives, or his true identity. The fast-moving "picture story" is told with sly humor and all the mayhem is depicted in Sala's trademark colorful watercolor washes and sharp, detailed line-work. Also included in this collection are three shorter stories, appearing in print for the first time, from Richard Sala's archive of strange and offbeat tales!

Ships in: November 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

A suite of related short mysteries and thrills, all depicted in Sala's trademark colorful watercolor washes and sharp, detailed line-work. Rising from the crumbling pages of some forgotten (and nonexistent) pulp magazine comes the diabolical villain Super-Enigmatix. Following in the bloody footsteps of master criminals such as Fantomas, Fu Manchu, or Professor Moriarty, Super-Enigmatix is ruthless, cunning, and thoroughly evil. His only goal is to spread fear and cause chaos — but does he want to destroy civilization, or save it? Not even his loyal army of female commandos can guess his real motives, or his true identity. Will he fall at the hands of the unhinged music professor turned homicidal fiend who calls himself Phantasmiac? Or Quadrummando, the Undead Shaman? And who is the Cardinal?

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Cover

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Inside Page

Nothing kills one's mood for golf like news of one's children being eaten alive. And by man-eating plants, no less! Keep your loved ones close; Super-Enigmatix is as cold and ruthless as he is cunning, and who knows where he may choose to strike next.

In a Glass Grotesquely collects selected picture stories by Richard Sala, and it is with deep trepidation that we take this first look.

And yet, once open, this book is nigh impossible to put down. Sala's lush, watercolored panels are eye-catchingly beautiful, and his sharp, dark humor is delightfully sinister. We'll have more previews in the next few weeks, before its anticipated November release, and our presale is up—if you dare.

In a Glass Grotesquely by Richard Sala - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Richard SalapreviewsComing Attractions 11 Aug 2014 8:00 AM

The dastardly Super-Enigmatix revels in creating chaos and catastrophe across the globe, and no one knows why. Former Detective Natalie Charms and Former Inspector Jory—along with his grandson, George—are hot on the trail of the the shadowy menace, but the closer they get to him, the greater the destruction Super-Enigmatix sows.

This 19-page excerpt (10.2 MB) sets the stage for Richard Sala's latest book, In a Glass Grotesquely, with Natalie and Inspector Jory piecing together a web of seemingly-unrelated crimes that point to a single mastermind: Super-Enigmatix!

A massively overdue collection of Online Commentaries and Diversions, now on a weekly (or so) basis:

The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte - Cover

  • Review: the Absolute on The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte. "Where The Amateursand Stechschulte truly shine are the moments of calm reflection that heighten the tension between episodes of violence and dismemberment. The butchers continually discuss their predicament, shifting between sorrow, fear, rage, and exhaustion." – Marie Anellothe Absolute

Age of License by Lucy Knisley - Cover

  • Review: Comics Worth Reading recommends An Age of License by Lucy Knisley. "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. If you liked her last book, Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, you should definitely check this out — there are some food mentions you’ll appreciate, but where Relish focused on past events, An Age of License gives more insight into the person Lucy Knisley is now." – Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading

The Love Bunglers by Jaime Hernandez - Cover

  • Review: The Irish Times discusses how The Love Bunglers by Jaime Hernandez exemplifies the strengths of the graphic novel format. "As ever with Hernandez, it’s funny, complex, unsettling and beautifully drawn. It’s also a reminder that a graphic novel can do things that a novel told in straightforward prose simply can’t." – Anna Carey, The Irish Times

Bomb Run and Other Stories by John Severin, Will Elder, Harvey Kurtzman - Cover

  • Review: Comics Bulletin on Bomb Run and Other Stories by John Severin, Will Elder, Harvey Kurtzman
  • "That's the fascinating paradox of John Severin's war comics, and of Kurtzman's war comics in general. A story like "Night Patrol!" may have all the details of the soldier's uniforms correct, portray their formations precisely and even be photo-referenced from the landscape of the region in which these men hike. But what really stands out here (maybe my favorite piece in the book due to its noir feel) is the sense that the men are trapped by their surroundings and their job, oppressed by the desolate landscape, unfeeling sky and cold rain that conspire to make their lives miserable." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Cannon by Wallace Wood - Cover

  • Review: The Comics Alternative examines the political and historical contexts of Wallace Wood's Cannon. "For anyone familiar with spy fiction, the stories serialized in this collection are fairly standard, often serving as political mirrors that reflect the disillusionment felt by soldiers and veterans exiting the Vietnam War. In the course of the book, Cannon fights South American insurgents (led by Hitler in disguise, of course), domestic terrorists, right-wing militias, emasculated conmen, and neo-Nazis (but not the ones led by Hitler in disguise)." – Kenneth Kimbrough, The Comics Alternative

Pirates in the Heartland: The Mythology of S. Clay Wilson Vol. 1 - Cover

  • Check out this amazing video on S. Clay Wilson, with highlights from the upcoming Pirates in the Heartland: The Mythology of S. Clay Wilson Vol. 1:

 

The Secret History of Marvel Comics - Cover

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 5: Outwits the Phantom Blot - Cover

  • Review: Comics Bulletin on Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot by Floyd Gottfredson. "This is a gorgeous, surprising, wonderful package of stories full of thrills, surprises and a heady level of quality cartooning. The twists and turns that the masterful Floyd Gottfredson delivers are wonders to behold. If you think that Mickey is just a boring corporate icon, you need to read his battles with the Phantom Blot." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Stranger Than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970-2013 by M.K. Brown - Cover

  • Review: Comics Bulletin on M.K. Brown's collected works in Stranger than Life. "Brown is one of those rare cartoonists who's been able to follow her own muse for most of her career, and while some of the material presented in this book has the sort of off-center approach that many of the bestNew Yorker cartoonists take (as in the excerpts above), other pieces are more freeform, more of what seems like a reflection of Brown's unique inner life; all bulbous people drifting through life, doing faintly ridiculous things for pretty much no good reason." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Nijigahara Holograph

  • Review: Comics Alliance looks at Inio Asano's Nijigahara Holograph and it's legacy of violence. "Nijigahara Holograph manages to do many things very well. It's a sprawling story that never loses its focus on characters. It's symbolically laden without being heavy handed...It carries a palpable dread that will haunt you well after you put it down." – Kevin Church, Comics Alliance

Cosplayers

  • Review: HTML Giant on Cosplayers by Dash Shaw. "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
