Judgment Day and Other Stories by Joe Orlando, Al Feldstein et al. - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesJoe OrlandoEC ComicsAl Feldstein 23 Apr 2014 11:15 AM

"All of these books are essential purchases for comics fans… These are the books that best show off how EC took genre stories seriously, striving to create comics that didn't treat readers as naive or ignorant." – Los Angeles Times

"Fantagraphics' current series of handsome hardcovers makes familiar material fresh by focusing on individual artists... it's never been easier to appreciate the contributions of these iconic inkslingers." – Chicago Tribune

"...I am not only appreciative...but also very impressed. [The books] are spectacular packages of their featured artist and their stories." – Al Feldstein

"These collections show comics in a pure, unadulterated form. Before the Superhero frenzy, before '60s cynicism, and just before the Comics Code Authority started trimming all the gory and sexy fun from the pages with their seal of approval." – Under the Radar

Judgment Day and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)

192-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99

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.

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

The suppression of family history and the cumulative effects of these secrets are the initial threads that tie together this masterful graphic novel from Jaime Hernandez. Much like John Updike in his four Rabbit novels, Hernandez has been following his longtime heroine, Maggie Chascarillo, for several decades, all of which has seemed to build towards The Love Bunglers.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeanutsnew releasesCharles M Schulz 21 Apr 2014 11:20 AM

"Charles Schulz was an American treasure — an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life." – Bill Clinton

"The Complete Peanuts has framed Charles Schulz’s enduring masterpiece about as well any lifelong fan could’ve hoped." – "The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives," The A.V. Club

"The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child..." – TIME

"Fantagraphics has won numerous awards for this series and they deserve them all for creating such a wonderful archive of this American treasure. This series is a must have for any Peanuts fan and can be enjoyed by the whole family. I wouldn't miss a volume." – The Christian Science Monitor

"Fantagraphics' heroic project (designed with subtle, quiet beauty by the caroonist called Seth) enables us to glimpse the moment when 'good ol' Charlie Brown' could say with frowning vehemence, 'The rest of this day can’t possibly hold any good for me!'... [Grade:] A” – Entertainment Weekly

Barnaby Vol. 2
by Crockett Johnson

376-page black & white/color 11" x 6.75" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-709-3

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

The long-lost comic strip masterpiece by Crockett Johnson, legendary children's book author (Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Carrot Seed), collected in full and designed by graphic novelist and Barnaby superfan Daniel Clowes (Ghost World, Wilson).

Vol. 2 collects the years 1944-1945 of five-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his Fairy Godfather J.J. O'Malley's misadventures. The cigar-chomping, bumbling con-artist and fast-talker O'Malley takes Barnaby on a trip to D.C. to serve his term in Congress, and introduces Launcelot McSnoyd, the invisible leprechaun and fellow member of the Elves, Leprechauns, Gnomes, and the Little Men's Chowder and Marching Society. Also, Gus the Ghost and O'Malley follow the Baxters to their seaside cottage, enlisting Barnaby to join them on a treasure hunt. Plus Wall St., Ermine hunters, soap salesmen and more!

Adored by all ages, Barnaby's deft balance of fantasy, timeless humor and elegant cartooning will delight even the most sophisticated reader, much as it did in its original run, attracting fans as diverse as Dorothy Parker, Charles Schulz, W.C. Fields, Gardner Rea, Milton Caniff, Rockwell Kent and Louis Untermeyer.
