Gilbert Hernandez and Jason return to comiXology with new comics
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under JasonGilbert Hernandezdigital comicscomiXology 21 Aug 2013 1:00 PM

Children of Palomar on Ipad

This digital drop Wednesday brings you two comics from two masters, Gilbert Hernandez and Jason. With a same day and date release as the print version, The Children of Palomar is Gilbert Hernandez's much-anticipated return to the small Central American town of Palomar. Originally released as a three-issue magazine series titled New Tales of Old Palomar in the acclaimed international "Ignatz" format, these stories are finally collected into one handsome book. All of these stories deal with the classic characters of Palomar (and stand alone from the series) such as sweet Pipo, her sharp-tongue sister Carmen, sheriff Chelo, and the gang of boys who help start it all: studious Heraclio, tall and fey Israel, disfigured but goodnatured Vicente, and girl-crazy Jesús and Satch.

"As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts." - San Francisco Chronicle

Lost Cat

The new graphic novel, Lost Cat, by Jason is both a playful take on the classic detective story. A detective happens to find a lost cat and finds that he and the woman to whom he returns it have a lot in common. They agree to meet again... but she's disappeared. Isolation and memory intertwine in the longest story by Jason to date. 

"Jason is one of the few artists (or writers) who can make existential aches seem droll, but it makes the smiles being provoked feel as honest as the ones we get when standing across from someone who makes the world feel a little less lonely." -David Barry, The National Post

DQ1 panel 

"Loaded with hipster irony, profanity and long digressive conversations, it's a loving tribute to half-repudiated childhood pleasures. ... At times, Dungeon Quest captures the anything-goes wanderlust of Calvin & Hobbes -- if Calvin's fantasies were real, set in rundown Los Angeles neighborhoods and loaded with swearing." -- Jason Thompson, The Comics Journal

The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book available at comiXology

The Red Monkey/Double Happiness on ipad

Fantagraphics and comiXology introduce a new cartoonist to the digital comics realm: South African Joe Daly! If mystery and comedy are what you crave, you'll want to download The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book by Joe Daly. Set in sun-drenched Cape Town, South Africa, this book features two full-length stories, "The Leaking Cello Case" and "John Wesley Harding," rife with mystery, suspense, action, adventure, conspiracy theories, cool cars and excellent weed. Daly brings a refreshingly original -- and utterly hilarious -- voice to the comics medium, a dry, deadpan wit anchored in everyday reality combined with unnervingly deranged plots, rendered with a hyper-detailed, half-realistic and half-cartoony Tintin-style crispness.

For $16.99, you get 118 pages of color comics by a new master of the medium. Get your Daly fix today!

Daly panels

"Working... in a comic realist mode reminiscent of, say, the old TV series The Rockford Files (Daly's Cape Town looks a lot like shorefront Southern California), Daly couldn't be any more entertaining. His visual-narrative skills are impeccable, his ear for naturally funny dialogue nothing short of astounding." - Ray Olson, Booklist

"[The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book] is basically Hergé by way of The Big Lebowski with a little bit of Repo Man thrown in for good measure.... very funny..." -- Chris Mautner, Robot 6

Three Paradoxes
Happy to bring you some great comics reading for your long weekend, Fantagraphics and comiXology present Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes to download. The story begins with a story inside the story: the cartoon character Paul Hornschemeier is trying to finish a story called "Paul and the Magic Pencil." An intricate, complex autobiographical comic blending multiple threads of reality and fantasy, each drawn in a different style, coming together as one story questioning change, progress, and worth in the author's life.
 
For $12.99 this carefully woven tale can be yours to unravel again and again and again at comiXology.
 
Three Paradoxes
"Stunning... To breathe even a lungful of fresh air into the autobiographical comics genre is a challenge, but Hornschemeier succeeds. Although the mysterious pull of a place and its stories is never fully explained, the book is made stronger and more memorable by his elliptical approach." - The Guardian
 
"Hornschemeier wields that rare gift of layered subtlety. Be it an almost imperceptible change in facial expressions or the slow death of a flower, he says significant, moving things in a few panels that would take pages to convey in a novel." – School Library Journal - See more at: http://www.fantagraphics.com/browse-shop/203-artists/403-paul-hornschemeier/fantagraphics/the-three-paradoxes-with-free-signed-bookplate.html#sthash.7r0selIo.dpuf

Eye of the Majestic Creature for your digital eyes at comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Leslie Steindigital comicscomiXology 26 Jun 2013 5:12 PM

Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 1

To get everyone excited about Volume 2 coming out soon, Fantagraphics and comiXology released Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 1 to add to your digital comics library. Leslie Stein's book is a collection of semi-autobiographical and fantasy-based comics that combine dry humor, psychedelia, and emotion to show the viewpoint of one person's world internally and externally.

The story follows a young girl, Larrybear, and her talking acoustic guitar Marshmallow on their adventures through the countryside, Chicago, San Francisco and New York. While Larrybear struggles to connect with strangers, her friends, and her family to various degrees of success, her growing population of anthropomorphic friends have adventures of their own. 

Enjoy this 122-page unique work for only $14.99 over at comiXology today. And start practicing on your own Marshmallow guitar for Volume 2!

EoMC

"Stein's cartooning is broad and trippy, and if she occasionally becomes intoxicated with her own gimlet-eyed sensibility, she's never afraid to turn that dark wit on herself. Eye of the Majestic Creature... is ultimately the tale of a young woman rejecting the things that shaped her and attempting to figure out what comes next for her. Thanks to Stein's loose, amiable approach, you'll want to know that, too." –Glen Weldon, NPR 

"Underground-influenced comics fall into certain patterns - idiosyncratic art, rambling tales of daily life, copious use of mood-altering substances - but [Leslie] Stein makes hers [Eye of the Majestic Creature] fresh with the addition of a talking guitar.... Stein's style is very readable, with sparse linework and a lead character that resembles a more tripped-out Little Orphan Annie, with huge blank buttons for eyes. Stein's settings and other characters show more detail, especially in the complex stippling, demonstrating her outward focus.... Her world is full, even if it's one that's a bit off-kilter..." –Publishers Weekly

Cushlamochree, we're digitally reading Barnaby
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under digital comicsCrockett JohnsoncomiXologyBarnaby 19 Jun 2013 1:18 PM

Barnaby 1 

Fantagraphics and comiXology bring you a delight for children and adults of all ages, Barnaby by Crockett Johnson. Barnaby revolved around a precocious five-year-old named Barnaby Baxter and his fairly godfather Jackeen J. O'Malley. Yet O'Malley, a cigar-chomping, bumbling con-artist and fast-talker, was not your typical protector. His grasp of magic was usually specious at best, limited to occasional flashes, often aided and abetted by his fellow members in The Elves, Leprechauns, Gnomes, and Little Men's Chowder & Marching Society. Hilarity and confusion often ensue all couched within the setting of World War II. Edited by Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds and Philip Nel, this beloved comic strip is finally given the Fantagraphics treatment.

Barnaby's deft balance of fantasy, political commentary, sophisticated wit, and elegantly spare images expanded our sense of what comic strips can do. With subtlety and economy, Barnaby proved that comics need not condescend to readers. Its small but influential readership took that message to heart.

So get this first volume that collects 1942-1943 of the newspaper strip for only $29.99 via comiXology! (Strip reformatted below so you can read it on our FLOG)

Barnaby Panel 

"I think, and I'm trying to talk calmly, that Barnaby and his friends and oppressors are the most important additions to American arts and letters in Lord knows how many years." –Dorothy Parker 

 "Johnson combined low-impact serialized adventure with some gentle comedy based around the ways that adults and kids diverge in their perspectives. The result is a compulsively readable strip with a winningly off-kilter point-of-view-and a cultural treasure that's been long-overdue for this kind of prestige archival project... " –Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life on comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Ulli Lustdigital comicscomiXology 5 Jun 2013 10:36 AM

Today at comiXology

Ulli Lust's primal yet thoughtful graphic novel Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life about a 17 year old's trek through Europe, no money, no extra clothes is ready to read digitally on comiXology!

Back in 1984, a punked-out Ulli Lust set out for a wild hitchhiking trip across Italy, from Naples through Verona and Rome and ending up in Sicily. Twenty-five years later, this talented Austrian cartoonist has looked back at that tumultuous summer and delivered a long, dense, sensitive, and minutely observed autobiographical masterpiece.

Universally considered one of the very finest examples of the new breed of graphic novels coming from Europe, Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life won the 2011 Angoulême “Revelation” prize, and Fantagraphics is proud to bring it to English speaking readers. Get your copy today comiXology for $26.99.

Panel from Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life

 "the book ripples with exuberance:… Lust’s pen-and-ink work (augmented by the pale green tint of European paperbacks) depicts the stretched and crimped features of the people from whom she bummed change, the architecture of St. Peter’s Basilica and the chaos of a Clash concert with equally manic panache, and her line is as seemingly unkempt but as deliberately molded as her younger self’s punk-rock shock of hair." –Douglas Wolk, The NY Times
