Now in stock: Sshhhh! (New Printing) by Jason - with preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesJason 15 Oct 2008 3:05 PM

Sshhhh! (New Printing) by Jason

Sshhhh! (New Printing)
By Jason

From the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-winning author comes this sharp suite of short tales, ranging from the funny to the terrifying to the surreal to the touching, all told entirely in pantomime. Like Chris Ware, Jason's clean, deadpan style (featuring animal-headed characters with mask-like faces) hides a wealth of emotion and human complexity, leavened with a wicked wit. Jason's work has also drawn comparisons to Art Spiegelman for the similar ways both artists utilize anthropomorphic stylizations to reach deeper, more general truths, and to create elegantly minimalist panels whose emotional depth-charge comes as an even greater shock. His dark wit and supremely bold use of "jump-cuts" from one scene to the next are endlessly surprising and exhilarating. This new 2008 reprint features a brand new cover design.

New Comics Day 10/1/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesNew Comics Day 2 Oct 2008 10:33 AM

Sorry we're a day late with this! Scheduled to arrive at your local comics shop yesterday from Fantagraphics:

The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970 Box Set by Charles M. Schulz
Meat Cake #17 by Dame Darcy

As usual you can view previews and get more info at the links above... you'll especially want to check out the preview for the Peanuts box set since that comes shrink-wrapped and your neighborhood comic shop clerk probably isn't going to want you peeling it open...

Now in stock: Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1925-1934 (2nd Ed.)
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesKrazy Kat 29 Sep 2008 3:39 PM

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1925-1934 by George Herriman

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1925-1934
By George Herriman

We said we would never reprint it... but popular demand overwhelmed our will! Our second limited-edition printing of this deluxe hardcover (limited to 600 copies this time) compiles the first five Krazy & Ignatz softcover collections books we published, comprehensively collecting the years 1925 through 1934, under hard covers. It's not a slipcase, it's a single hardcover book. The covers to the original five softcover books are NOT included, but literally everything else is. And yes, we are similarly collecting the years 1935-1944 and, eventually, 1916-1924, as those softcover volumes are completed. (Since we get asked this once in a while — even though it's covered in the first one we did, at the end of the book, ahem — YES, we will go back and reprint the years prior to 1925, after we publish everything through 1944, when the strip ended.) Because of the limited nature of this item, we are not distributing this through traditional bookstores or Diamond distribution. A beautiful, must-have brick of a book for the Ignatz in you (though lobbing it at any unrequited love interests WILL cause serious physical harm — be warned).

600-page black & white 9" x 12" hardcover • $75.00
