This first volume, covering the first two and a quarter years of the strip, features hundreds of strips rarely reprinted before this series. Three major cast members — Schroeder, Lucy, and Linus — initially show up as infants and only “grow” into their final “mature” selves as the months go by. Even Snoopy debuts as a puppy! The Complete Peanuts offers a unique chance to see a master of the art form refine his skills and solidify his universe, day by day. This volume is rounded out with Garrison Keillor’s introduction and a biographical essay by David Michaelis (Schulz and Peanuts).

There's a unicorn out there and Uncle Scrooge wants it! So Donald and the boys embark on a perilous quest to an exotic land of mystery and danger. (But if you catch a unicorn, what, exactly, do you do with it?)

Next, how could a simple letter to Santa set off not only a riotous moneybag fight between Donald and Scrooge but a cacophonous battle between dueling steam shovels, too?

Then, Donald takes on an impossible assignment to sell — well, something — to the natives of the North.

The ever-clever Carl Barks surprises and delights with mythical mayhem, frigid fun, and feathered foibles on every page!

Introduction by Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Carl Barks, one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge. Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Trail of the Unicorn continues Fantagraphics' acclaimed color series that exquisitely re-presents all of Barks's classic Duck stories to a new generation.

Unlovable Vol. 3 by Esther Pearl Watson - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesEsther Pearl Watson 9 Apr 2014 12:12 PM

"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

"A modest masterpiece, affecting and funny." – Booklist

“GOOD!!!” – Lynda Barry

Unlovable is why we all want to forget about our high school years, but we just can't help but reliving parts again to feel the pain.” – Eric Nakamura, GIANT ROBOT Co-Founder

"I love Unlovable. Take that, book title. ... It’ll remind you of how stupid you were and also of suburban sadness and realizing that your high school crush will probably never love you back." – Nick Gazin, Vice

"Like a Wimpy Kid older sister but more poignant and painful, this features jagged, unpretty art capturing the diarist’s inner chaos. For Lynda Barry fans craving a new read and professionals seeking an unvarnished glimpse of female adolescence.” – Library Journal's "Graphic Novels for Women’s History Month"

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

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

"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.
