Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set by Ed Piskor - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesEd Piskor 19 Sep 2014 3:00 PM

"It’s a great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well." – Bill Adler (co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label)

"In Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree, readers get to experience the origins of rap music in a way like never before; they get to live it. They get to walk the streets of New York City, where in rented performance rooms with cobbled-together gear pioneers like DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash birthed a new art form." – Comics Alliance

"An avid lover of hip-hop music and superhero comic books from a young age, Ed Piskor has combined his two passions to create a remarkable reading experience…Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of 1980s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats." – AV Club

"The amount of research and history Piskor packs into this book is mind boggling." – Huffington Post

Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War! - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesJacques Tardi 18 Sep 2014 6:00 PM

Praise for It Was the War of the Trenches

"'The war to end all wars' has become a magisterial comic book to end all comic books. I seldom give blurbs, but this book is an essential classic. Among all of Jacques Tardi's towering achievements as a comics artist, nothing looms larger than this devastating crater of a work. It’s a compulsively readable wail of Existential despair, a kaleidoscope of war’s dehumanizing brutality and of Everyman’s suffering, as well as a deadpan masterpiece of the darkest black humor. The richly composed and obsessively researched drawings — perfectly poised between cartoon and illustration — march to the relentless beats of Tardi’s three horizontal panels per page to dig a hole deep inside your brain. This is one Hell of a book." – Art Spiegelman

"Tardi's depiction of the First World War is so impassioned and visceral that it can be compared to the work of the artists who actually served in the trenches." – Joe Sacco

"French master Tardi gives an infantry-level view of World War I's meat-grinder carnage in grim vignettes that primarily keep tight, telling focus on the stories of individual soldiers. …[It Was the War of the Trenches] deserves a place on the top shelf of graphic lit.” – Cliff Froehlich, St. Louis Post-Dipatch

Praise for Goddamn This War!

"As brutal and horrific as the Great War itself, this book rivals All Quiet on the Western Front when it comes to the insane idiocy of the conflict." – Max Brooks

And luckily, he shares it, this time from the visual-presentation experts of Fantagraphics Books — a match made in poster-art heaven." – Bookgasm

"Makes Antonin Artaud look like a picture of mental health." – Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Derrida Reframed: A Guide for the Visual Arts Student

Now available for the first time in paperback, Wilfred Santiago’s instant classic 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente is a human drama of courage, faith, and dignity, inspired by the life of the acclaimed Pittsburgh Pirates baseball star who died too young. 21 chronicles Clemente's life from his early days growing up, through the highlights of his career, capturing the grit of his rise from an impoverished Puerto Rican childhood to the majesty of his performance on the field, and to his fundamental decency off of it. Santiago's inviting style combines realistic attention to detail and expressive cartooning to great effect.

Because you asked for it, we're proud to present our first complete, chronological book of Duck adventures by contemporary fan favorite Don Rosa — following in the footsteps of Disney legend Carl Barks with an exciting, lovingly detailed visual style all his own! Rosa, among the world's most beloved modern cartoonists, launched his Barksian career in 1987. Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns! Presented with sparkling color and "extras," these Duckburg epics are getting a definitive, comprehensive North American edition for the very first time — at a price even Scrooge would consider a bargain!

An Age of License
by Lucy Knisley

196-page black & white with color 5.5" x 7.5" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-768-0

See Previews / Order Now

Acclaimed cartoonist Lucy Knisley (French Milk, Relish) got an opportunity that most only dream of: a travel-expenses-paid trip to Europe and Scandinavia, thanks to a book tour. An Age of License is Knisley's comics travel memoir recounting her charming (and romantic!) adventures. It’s punctuated by whimsical visual devices (such as a "new experiences" funnel); peppered with the cute cats she meets along the way; and, of course, features her hallmark — drawings and descriptions of food that will make your mouth water. But it’s not all kittens and raclette crêpes: Knisley's experiences are colored by anxieties, introspective self-inquiries, and quotidian revelations — about traveling alone in unfamiliar countries, and about her life and career — that many young adults will relate to. An Age of License — which takes its name from a French saying — is an Eat, Pray, Love for the alternative comics fan.

Snoopy's Thanksgiving by Charles M. Schulz - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under new releasesCharles M Schulz 29 Aug 2014 5:16 PM

Sometimes getting together with friends and family for Thanksgiving isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, as Snoopy learns when his brother Spike invites him to spend Thanksgiving in the desert, and things don’t quite work out as planned. At least it’s a change of pace for Snoopy, who spends most Thanksgivings with the ol’ supper dish (and one lonely one at the malt shoppe as Joe Cool). It’s also a tense time of year to be a bird who’s afraid of being mistaken for a turkey and roasted, and Woodstock copes with his anxieties in various ways, including by donning a disguise with Snoopy’s help. Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Franklin all get sick over their Thanksgiving vacation. Snoopy’s Thanksgiving is the perfect gift book for anyone whose idea of the holiday is more Charlie Brown than Norman Rockwell.

"Dash Shaw, it’s fair to say, is something of a genius." –Chris Ware

Praise for Shaw’s previous book

New School is about art, about the art that’s in the book itself…There’s stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the level of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say…This book is just fascinating…[A] masterful, gorgeous and defiantly odd work that demands close attention—and richly rewards it.” –NPR’s “Best Books of 2013”

"[Tim Lane] makes illustrations in that Brylcreem-soaked, hard-boiled, noir style with heavy hatching circa R. Crumb." – Juxtapoz

"Lane’s beautifully crafted pen-and-ink drawing combines a master artist’s eye for detail with a predilection for the grotesque to produce a superb blending of unforgettable images and poignant meditation on life’s tragic undercurrents." – Booklist
