Judgment Day and Other Stories by Joe Orlando, Al Feldstein et al. - Video/Photo Slideshow Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesJoe OrlandoEC ComicsAl Feldstein 3 Apr 2014 2:10 PM

Judgment Day and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)
illustrated by Joe Orlando; written by Al Feldstein, Ray Bradbury et al.

192-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-727-7

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

Joe Orlando was a mainstay at EC, especially on science fiction, and this collects 23 of his best sci-fi stories. All of them, most scripted by Al Feldstein, serve up classic O. Henry-style endings, such as “I, Robot,” and “Fallen Idol.” The title story is one of EC’s most famous, with its blunt anti-racism message. When it was printed during the era of the Comics Code, publisher Bill Gaines and Feldstein had to fight to keep the story’s final panel “reveal” (and thus its whole point) intact. It was a pyrrhic victory, however, as “Judgment Day” became the last story in the last comic book EC published. This volume also features two of Orlando’s outstanding adaptations of classic Ray Bradbury science-fiction stories: “The Long Year” and “Outcast of the Stars.” Also included are all of EC’s “Adam Link” adaptations, a series which was later adapted for The Outer Limits TV show featuring Leonard Nimoy.

A local medical expert and sheriff are summoned to investigate a strange sighting that sets the stage for Conor Stechschulte's debut graphic novella: a severed human head that still seems to be talking. We flash back to a pair of butchers who arrive at work one morning to find not only that there is no meat in their shop but also that they have forgotten completely how to do their job. As customers arrive, they are too fearful for their livelihood to admit their dilemma, leading to increasingly disastrous events. But what has caused their strange amnesia? This often hilarious, enigmatic, and uncomfortable book establishes Stechschulte as an exciting new talent.

The Love Bunglers by Jaime Hernandez - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesLove and RocketsJaime Hernandez 2 Apr 2014 11:52 AM

"Symphonic, tragic, revelatory, exciting and devastating as only great art can be, The Love Bunglers is one of the best comics ever made." – The Austin-American Statesman

"The kind of rich, intricate stories — packed with sharp observations about human desire and self-justification — that only an author with 30 years of experience with these characters could write. [Grade] A" – The A.V. Club

"Even in a long career of masterpieces, Jaime's story about missed opportunities for happiness is a revelation." – Publishers Weekly

"It goes without saying that The Love Bunglers completely knocked me out... Concise, moving, and incredibly bold, it's like a cartooning master class." – Adrian Tomine

The Complete Peanuts 1991-1992 (Vol. 21)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page black & white 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-726-0

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

Peanuts enters its final decade, and The Complete Peanuts enters its homestretch, with material that is perhaps the most overlooked of Schulz’s career and soon to be reconsidered by scholars with this volume. Schulz’s cartooning has never looked more confident, and his sense of humor never more unrestrained. This is the 21st volume (of 25) of the perennial, bestselling series that collects every single one of the 18,000-plus Peanuts strips created by Charles M. Schulz, from its debut in 1950 to the end in 2000.

Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter Bagge - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeter Baggenew releases 27 Mar 2014 11:56 AM

"I love Hate, particularly the increasingly oddball Buddy Bradley stories.... Every comics fan should have the vast majority of whatever Peter Bagge has in print..." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

"...Bagge’s vivid caricatures animate the most routine of actions, effectively suggesting how cozily, in this life, the mundane cohabits with the outrageous." – Rich Kreiner, The Comics Journal

"...Bagge truly pulls out all the stops in depicting extreme familial weirdness. His dialogue is as sharp as ever, his line is quite lively and his uncanny ability to depict the creeping weirdness of suburbia is even more disturbing than in the initial run of New Jersey stories in Hate." – Rob Clough, High-Low

"Peter Bagge is the funniest cartoonist in existence." – John Kricfalusi

"It's a laff riot, what can I tell ya?" – R. Crumb

"Folk hero Buddy Bradley defined and transcended grunge-era slackerdom." – Playboy

The Love Bunglers
by Jaime Hernandez

112-page black & white 9" x 11.25" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-729-1

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

"There are certain things about my family Mom always preferred to keep hush hush."

The suppression of family history is the initial thread that ties together The Love Bunglers, featuring Hernandez's longtime Love and Rockets heroine Maggie. Because these secrets can't be dealt with openly, their lingering effect is even more powerful. But Maggie's ability to navigate and find meaning in her life — despite losing her culture, her brother, her profession, and her friends — is what's made her a compelling character. After a lifetime of losses, Maggie finds, in the second half, her longtime off and on lover, Ray Dominguez. In taking us through lives, deaths, and near-fatalities, The Love Bunglers encapsulates Maggie's emotional history as it moves from resignation to memories of loss, to sudden violence (a theme in this story), and eventually to love and contentment. Much like John Updike in his four Rabbit novels, Jaime Hernandez has been following his longtime character Maggie around for several decades, all of which has seemed to be building towards this book in particular.

BARGAIN COMBO:
Unlovable Vols. 1-3 Gift Set
Price: $68.98 $55.18

Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials — too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc. — as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of high school through Tammy's naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable's universal humor and loser cast of characters. Tammy's life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly endearing and hilarious.

"Esther's consistently original, hilarious and heart-felt work evokes the travails of puberty with painful accuracy. After perusing Unlovable Vol. 3 we immediately broke out in zits and had clumsy beginner sex." – Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman

"Tammy's enchanting smile and dazzling eyes are a gift of grace from Esther Watson." – Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time

"Unlovable is the great teen comic tragedy of our time!" – Matt Groening

Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Trail of the Unicorn by Carl Barks - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesDisneyCarl Barks 17 Mar 2014 3:35 PM

"...Barks’s Disney comics were and are enormously well crafted and equally enormously entertaining, timeless comedy adventures that Fanta presents in such handsomely designed volumes that they make the perfect gift for just about any reader of comics, regardless of age, background, or experience with the art form." – School Library Journal

"One of comics revered masters gets a fresh new reprinting worthy of his work and accessible to kids.... A wonderful project that should put Barks’s name in front of new generations of admirers." – Publishers Weekly

"Even the silliest premise, when executed by an artist in perfect control of his gifts, can land with deftness and grace — that's something that strikes you again and again as you read Barks' work. And it's a lesson that won't get lost on any kid with whom you might choose to share it, which is convenient, as this collection makes a perfect introduction to one of the greatest all-ages comics artists of all time." – NPR - Monkey See

"Even now, Barks’ stories are clever and funny, as he leads the ducks into impossible situations and then gives them unexpected ways out. And they're poignant in their own way, too...." – The A.V. Club

"Carl Barks is one of those truly perfect cartoonists. It feels so good to have these books with beautiful Fantagraphics quality production sitting on my shelf...You'll get sucked in." – VICE

"Barks, the artist, is a master cartoonist, drawing lively, expressive characters with a graceful sense of movement. His beautiful, detailed backgrounds plant the ducks in a fully realized world that adds weight to his storytelling.... But besides the entertaining plots, Barks’ appeal is in his characters. He gives his ducks many human frailties and while they usually try to do the right thing, they make mistakes, get angry, frustrated, and even fail. Fantagraphics Books... does its usual high quality work here as well. The design and layout of the book is a handy comic-book size hardcover with bright, colorful reproductions of the comics. Besides the comics, there are articles on Barks and analysis on each story... For both newcomers to Barks' work and diehard fans, this is a book that any comic book reader would love..." – The Christian Science Monitor

Usagi Yojimbo Book 3: The Wanderer's Road by Stan Sakai - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Usagi YojimboStan Sakaipreviewsnew releases 16 Mar 2014 11:11 AM

"Just as Usagi has learned that swordsmanship is more than fighting, Stan Sakai has obviously learned that art is more than drawing. The entire field would be richer if more artists embraced this lesson." – Robert Asprin, from the introduction

"If you haven't seen this ultra-cool series, you must! It involves a rabbit samurai — yes, a rabbit samurai — that young readers will love for the action and sophisticated art. I adore it for those reasons too, but there's more substance to it than you might expect. A good Zen comic is hard to find, and this one is nearly perfect." – USA Today Pop Candy

"These bittersweet adventure stories offer entertaining reading, especially for young Asian-Americans who feel excluded from mainstream juvenile literature." – Los Angeles Times

"One of the most original, innovative, well-executed comic books anywhere to be found." – Stan Lee
