OCD EXTRA: Rolling Stone's Top 50

ROlling stone

Rolling Stone recently listed it's Top 50 Non-Superhero Graphic Novels and we made up 22% of that list (including a few books that we published and have been rereleased by others). If you haven't picked up one of these books, get steppin' to your local comic book store, buy one from the website, visit the library---you've go so many options! Picks by Joe Gross also of the Austin-American Statesman.
Safe Area Gorazde 
47 Safe Area Gorazde by Joe Sacco "Joe Sacco is one of the medium's premier journalists; that he has focused on war-torn regions makes his work feel that much more vital and impressive...Gorazde - is a great place to start."
 You'll Never Know
44 You'll Never Know series by C. Tyler "Tyler is a top flight memoirist, and You'll Never Know pulses with a maturity not often found in the medium.
Usagi Yojimbo 
43 Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai "Never less than thoughtful and entertaining, Usagi Yojimbo is one of the most consistent comics around." 
Dal Tokyo 
33 Dal Tokyo by Gary Panter "Pretty much anything the most punk cartoonist ever…
Uncle Scrooge 
15 Uncle Scrooge by Carl Barks "His Donald Duck stories are a comedic blast, but his Uncle Scrooge stories are veritable silly symphonies of complicated plotting and intercontinental adventure. Need a master class in how to tell a great comics story? Read any Barks' Scrooge stories from 1950 until his retirement in 1966. It's all there.
Ghost World 
9 Ghost World by Daniel Clowes "You're goddamn right it's the Catcher in the Rye of comics."
The Complete Crumb 
5 The Complete Crumb by R. Crumb "To ignore him completely is only to invite accidentally ripping him off; he's the Bob Dylan of the comics underground, and his work is embedded in the medium's DNA now."  
larn5 Love and Rockets  Love and Rockets 6  
1 Love and Rockets by Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez "Imagine the Clash or R.E.M. or Run-DMC not only never broke up, but, for 30 years, never once released a less-than-excellent record. Imagine their command of their craft just became more pronounced year after year, earning the unshakable admiration of their fans and peers. Imagine they made the best record of their career, 30 years on, this decade. This is essentially what Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez have done with Love and Rockets, the greatest American comic book series of all time."  
 

The Blighted Eye: Original Comic Art from the Glenn Bray Collection - Photoset Preview

"Glenn's fabulous collection and the stories that go with it is the kinda stuff you can't make up." – Jaime Hernandez

"The Bray Collection is a national treasure, a Fort Knox of astounding pop-culture holdings compiled with uncanny prescience and a singular, infallible eye for both the unassailably great and the otherwise overlooked. Bray and Zwalve have assembled a sum that is possibly greater even than its magnificent parts, and to experience the body of work in its entirety — finding connections, noting omissions, succumbing to the perfection of the vision — is to understand the visual world in a whole new way." – Daniel Clowes

"Glenn Bray is the Great Curator of brilliant, overlooked pop culture, and this wild book is an eye-popping art treasure for us all." – Matt Groening

New Comics Day 10.30.13
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Steve DitkoRobert CrumbNew Comics DayBlake Bell 30 Oct 2013 11:50 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.

Impossible Tales Vol 4

Impossible Tales: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 4
by Steve Ditko; edited by Blake Bell

240-page full-color 7.25" x 10" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-640-9

"I think [Ditko's] a foundational mainstream talent, and one of the interesting ones like Johnny Craig in that a lot of his influence is felt more directly in areas outside of conventional mainstream funnybooks. I could read him all day. And then the next day." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter 

"Ditko's distinctly off-kilter drawings and boldly potent composition" and the "meticulous restoration means that the stories look far better here than they did upon their original appearances." –Gordon Flagg, Booklist Online

The Complete Crumb Vol. 6

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 6: On the Crest of a Wave (New Printing)
by Robert Crumb

156-page black & white/color 8.5" x 11" softcover • $19.99
978-1-60699-683-6

"These are all must haves, and every positive vibe I emanated up the screen in the direction of Steve Ditko goes double for Mr. Crumb. This is pretty prime time material in terms of the material that made and kept him an icon in the 1970s, but then again, nearly all of these volumes has something. I admire Fantagraphics for their commitment to keep this material in print." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

 

The Complete Crumb 8

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 8: The Death of Fritz the Cat (New Printing) by Robert Crumb

144-page black & white/color 8.5" x 11" softcover • $19.99
978-1-56097-076-7

"The Complete Crumb series is especially useful in reminding us that Crumb has continued to evolve through the sixties. His more recent work is quieter and more literary... The most recent installment, collecting material originally published in Weirdo magazine, contains some of Crumb's best work." –The National Post

by Jim Woodring

104-page black & white 7.25" x 9.75" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-661-4

"a simultaneous prequel *and* sequel to Jim Woodring's excellent Congress of the Animals from 2011, a book which seemed to shatter the cyclical exploits of the artist's "Frank" universe so as to provide an ending of sorts, though surely you want to know more about that nice friend Frank shacked himself up with for the denouement" –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal  

Love and Rockets
Love and Rockets: New Stories #6

by Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez

100-page black & white 7.5" x 9.25" softcover • $14.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-679-9

"In the 30 years they've been writing and drawing Love and Rockets, Los Bros Hernandez have created wonderfully complex story lines and characters... This web of superior magical-realistic storytelling involves readers in the perplexed yearnings of a huge cast of unforgettable characters unaware of their own capacity for general self-delusion and occasional self-discovery." –Publishers Weekly

"There are acclaimed filmmakers and novelists who can't do what Jaime Hernandez does - or Gilbert, for that matter. When the two of them are at their most inspired, as they are here, they make almost every other comics creator today look like a fumbling hack. [Grade] A" –The A.V. Club

Xmas on Bear Mountain
Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Christmas on Bear Mountain

by Carl Barks

216-page color 7.5" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-697-3

"One of comics revered masters gets a fresh new reprinting worthy of his work and accessible to kids.... This volume finds [Barks] at a creative peak, combining the bold adventuring of Tintin with the wisely cynical view of human weakness of John Stanley.... Despite the dark undertones, the comic expressions and dialogue is still laugh-out-loud funny. A wonderful project that should put Barks's name in front of new generations of admirers." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

The Complete Crumb Vol. 17
The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17: Cave Wimp (New Printing)
by Robert Crumb

136-page black & white/color 8.5" x 11" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-684-3

"The Complete Crumb series is especially useful in reminding us that Crumb has continued to evolve through the sixties. His more recent work is quieter and more literary... The most recent installment, collecting material originally published in Weirdo magazine, contains some of Crumb's best work." The National Post











The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 8 by Robert Crumb - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert Crumbpreviewsnew releases 10 Oct 2013 12:47 PM

"So you probably wanna know something about the artistic development of Crumb during this period… Well, the early ’70s was a bleak period in general… The grim end of the fabulous ’60s and for Robert the big bringdown ‘hangover’ of his first brush with fame, plus dealing with his chaotic messed-up personal life. He was confused, distracted, bitter, and generally in a foul mood. He killed ‘Fritz the Cat’ after the Ralph Bakshi cartoon debacle. He also did a lot of weird visual experimentation, like all those cubist eyeballs ‘n’ stuff, and he wrote some classic long stories like ‘Whiteman Meets Bigfoot.’ I think he did his first long, truly autobiographical story — ‘The Confessions of R. Crumb’ — around this time. That whiny, self-deprecating attitude was encouraged and inspired by me and Terry Zwigoff (two totally self-loathing Jews). For those of you who hate that aspect of Crumb and prefer the more cosmic stuff, or the historical stuff, or the real sicko stuff… you can blame it on me! I encouraged that ‘white boy’ to kvetch on paper." – from the Introduction by Aline Kominsky-Crumb

Volume 8 of the collected works of underground comix legend Robert Crumb brings the series up to 1972. This was an era when fame and fortune were weighing heavily on Crumb, and his reactions to his celebrity produced some of his best and most fascinating strips! This volume includes several classic works, including the solo titles Home Grown (which includes the infamous 22-page sex story "Whiteman Meets Bigfoot"); Big Ass Comics #2 (which includes the controversial "Anal Antics" and "And Now a Word to All You Feminist Women" — not politically correct); Mr. Natural #2 (featuring the continuing adventures of one of Crumb's best-loved characters); and finally Crumb's scathing reaction to the Bakshi/Krantz Fritz the Cat movie and fame in general, People's Comics. This masterpiece includes "The Confessions of R. Crumb," "The R. Crumb $uck$e$$ Story," and "Fritz the Cat, 'Superstar'", wherein Fritz, now a burned-out, overstimulated, callous celebrity, gets his final, fatal comeuppance in the form of an ice pick (long before Fatal Attraction)! Add into the volume the usual slew of Crumb rarities — from The Whole Earth Catalog, Thrilling Murder, Bijou, Surfer Magazine, and Nostalgia Press — as well as another extensive color section, and an introduction by Crumb's missus, Aline Kominsky-Crumb — and you've got a collection that any Crumb fan must have. This volume contains material that sets the tone for the rest of Crumb's career — the retreat from the hurly-burly modern world, the ruralism, the nostalgia, the introspection... and let's not forget the wild weird Crumb sexuality! A must!

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 8: The Death of Fritz the Cat continues the multi-volume series comprising the complete works of the legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, one of America's most original, trenchant, and uncompromising satirists. The series includes the earliest, heretofore unpublished comic strips, as well as his underground comix, dramatic and autobiographical strips, and his classic cartoon creations Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural. This volume features work from 1971 and 1972.

"So you probably wanna know something about the artistic development of Crumb during this period... Well, the early '70s was a bleak period in general...

Robert Crumb enters the '70s with this, the sixth volume in Fantagraphics Books' all-inclusive reprint series. This includes a couple of genuine rarities (some of them so obscure they didn't even make the Crumb Checklist), as well as all of Crumb's work from Big Ass #1, Zap #4 (including the legendary, much-busted, X-rated "Joe Blow" teen incest strip), the remarkably offensive Snatch #3 and Jiz #1, the classic Despair, and the second issue of Motor City — classics all. The volume also includes a 16-page color section (with rare covers from the first three Gothic Blimp Works), a sumptuous cover by Crumb, and an insightful intro by the Man himself (no, not Stan Lee). Absolutely indispensible, and now back in print!

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17 continues the multi-volume, chronological series comprising the complete works of the legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, one of America's most original, trenchant, and uncompromising artists. This volume explores the years 1988-1992, including his contributions to issues 22-27 of the infamous underground comix anthology, Weirdo, which was founded by Crumb and featured such classics as "Memories Are Made of This" and "I'm Grateful! I'm Grateful!" Also included is the historic "Cave Wimp" from Zap #12 (as featured on this volume's cover), "The Ol' Outsider Goes to the Academy Awards" (created for Premiere magazine), the scarce Vues de Sauve portfolio of landscape drawings made in the artist's village in southern France, and 24 pages in full color.

Including the entirety of Crumb's published oeuvre, as well as unpublished comics and illustrations, the multiple Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Complete Crumb Comics series is an invaluable addition to any cartooning library.
