Nocturnal Conspiracies by David B.

Nocturnal Conspiracies
By David B.

The best-selling author of Epileptic and Babel, and a member of Europe's leading new generation of comics artists, invites us to share in nineteen explorative and most imaginative dreams he has experienced. Strange, scary, beautiful, funny and with an inner logic all their own, these are tales of the inner psyche, rendered in his exquisite neo-clear line style supplemented with a cool second color (much like his Mome work). Published by NBM ComicsLit.

Now in stock: Misery Loves Comedy (2nd Ed.) by Ivan Brunetti
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesIvan Brunetti 28 Nov 2008 2:51 PM

Misery Loves Comedy (2nd Ed.) by Ivan Brunetti

Misery Loves Comedy (2nd Ed.)
By Ivan Brunetti

A psychiatric case study masquerading as a fancy-pants graphic novel, Misery Loves Comedy collects Ivan Brunetti's early issues (no pun intended)... wait, let's rephrase that. Misery Loves Comedy collects the first three issues of the legendary comic book series Schizo in their entirety, as well as a host of miscellaneous flotsam and jetsam from various anthologies, c. 1992-2005. Readers will find the author's unwitting self-caricature as a paranoid, deluded young man intriguingly repugnant and often chuckle-inducing. Besides Brunetti's trademark nihilism, self-loathing, relentless depression, and inchoate, spittle-soaked misanthropy, these earlier comics offer a dollop of scatology and blasphemy for that extra puerile, lowbrow tang. These are comics for those who enjoy witnessing one man's sanity in its final death rattle, swinging its tail from anhedonia to schadenfreude and back again. Also: lots and lots of filthy jokes.

While supplies last, you can choose to order the new Second Edition, with a dark red clothbound cover, or the First Edition, bound in dark green cloth.

Zippy: Welcome to Dingburg by Bill Griffith

Zippy: Welcome to Dingburg
By Bill Griffith

This new Zippy collection is an unexpected departure from previous editions: most of the strips in this volume chronicle the strange history, people and social mores of Zippy’s hometown, “Dingburg,” the only city in the U.S. inhabited entirely by pinheads — well, aside from Washington, D.C., and certain sections of Newark.

Take a tour of Dingburg’s “Beatnik District,” experience the festive holiday season of “Nordisk,” meet Dingburg’s resident Cubist, watch as citizens capture Donald Trump’s wig in a raid on an Atlantic City casino, and find out (at last) exactly why Zippy and his fellow Dingburgers speak in non sequiturs (it’s the water).

Reader response to this new Dingburg “story thread” has been loud and approving, with many asking for directions to the fabled enclave, somewhere “17 miles west of Baltimore.” Detailed maps will be provided on the new book’s endpapers.

Dingburg’s own favorite comic strips are also on display. Marvel at the baffling success of “Fletcher & Tanya” and the Dingburg kids’ favorite online comic, “Unibrow Versus The Universe.”

Also in this isue: the revealing “Little Zippy” series, in which Zippy’s magical and very weird childhood is laid bare.

And, finally, Zippy and J. Edgar Hoover (remember him?) cavort in tutus and play with loaded guns. Welcome to Dingburg!

Castle Waiting Vol. II #13
By Linda Medley

The bowling action from last issue reaches its rollicking conclusion! Will the unorthodox bowling technique that Chess learned from Tolly enable him to scare up a victory for his team? Post-game, will Jayne finally succeed in drawing the mysterious Dr. Fell out of his shell? And is Beaky still wearing that dress? Answers to these questions, and tantalizing hints at future mysteries yet to be revealed (where did that magic trunk come from, anyway?), in this issue of Linda Medley's hit series.
