Now in stock: Sublife Vol. 1
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesJohn Pham 16 Sep 2008 12:29 PM

Sublife Vol. 1 by John Pham

Sublife Vol. 1
By John Pham

Two white supremacist brothers live in the midst of an “ethnic” urban flood along with a dog they’ve trained as a weapon. A household made up of three renters, a landlord who never leaves her attic bedroom, and her son, who insists on wearing a sheet over his head all the time. A pack of ravenous stray dogs chase a cat down a desolate alleyway. The lonely, grimy silhouette of Los Angeles, ever-present. All these separate threads weave through the first part of "221 Sycamore St.", an ongoing story about the desperate need for family in two distinct households that share an indelible yet mysterious connection.

Sublife is the engaging new series from emerging talent John Pham (Epoxy, MOME). Similar in format to other great one-man anthology comics before it (Eightball, Acme Novelty Library, Jim), Sublife presents a variety of stories told in a range of styles and voices, all demonstrating a singular vision. Issue one features the first self-contained chapter of "221 Sycamore St." as well as "Deep Space," a semi-comical sci-fi journey into "psychopathia infinitus."

96-page two-color 8.25" x 6.75" softcover • $8.99

Meat Cake #17 by Dame Darcy

Meat Cake #17
By Dame Darcy

Just because Dame Darcy is busy with music, dollmaking, and being a reality TV star, that doesn't mean she's stopped baking her beloved Meat Cake, and here's a new issue to prove it! In Meat Cake #17, God is revealed to the Faeiry Sisters — so of course they get into a fight over it. Also, Trixxie Roxx stars in "The Horrors of Fame," what Darcy describes as "a punk-rock version of those cheesy 1940s romance novels where the girls are going through hyperdrama all the time" — plus more kee-razy neo-Goth fairy-tale madness from one of comics' true originals!

32-page black & white 6.75" x 10.25" comic book • $3.95

Now in stock: The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970, 1967-1970 Box Set / Slipcase
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsPeanutsnew releasesCharles M Schulz 15 Sep 2008 5:04 PM

The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970 by Charles M. Schulz

The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970
By Charles M. Schulz

"WOODSTOCK" PROPELS PEANUTS INTO THE '70s!

He turns up first as Snoopy’s secretary, then gradually becomes a good friend whom Snoopy helps to fly South... but it’s not until June 22, 1970 that the little bird gains a name, in a perfect salute to the decade that ends with this volume: Woodstock!

In other timely stories, Peppermint Patty runs afoul of her school’s dress code (those sandals!), Lucy declares herself a “New Feminist,” and Snoopy’s return to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm on a speaking engagement climaxes in a riot and a new love found amidst the teargas (“She had the softest paws...”).

Speaking of Snoopy, this volume falls under the sign of the Great Beagle, as three separate storylines focus on the mysterious sovereign of Beagledom. First Snoopy is summoned by a wrathful G.B. when Frieda submits a complaint about his (Snoopy’s) desultory rabbit-chasing efforts; then, back in the Great one’s good graces, Snoopy is sent on a secret mission; and finally he himself ascends (briefly!) to the mantle of Great Beagledom.

In other news, an exasperated Lucy throws Schroeder’s piano into the maw of the kite-eating tree, with gruesome results... Miss Othmar goes on strike and Linus gets involved... Charlie Brown’s baseball team has an actual (brief) winning streak... Snoopy’s quest to compete in the Oakland ice skating competition is thwarted by his inability to find a partner... Charlie Brown goes to a banquet to meet his hapless baseball hero Joe Shlabotnik... Snoopy is left in the Van Pelt family’s care as Charlie and Sally Brown head out of town for a vacation... and (alas) the Little Red-Haired Girl moves away...

This volume also features a new introduction by renowned illustrator Mo Willems and, as always, gorgeous design by award-winning cartoonist Seth.

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944 by George Herriman

Krazy and Ignatz: The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944
By George Herriman

Our second limited-edition deluxe Krazy hardcover (it's Volume 3, but the second to be published; Volume 1 is still forthcoming) collects the second batch of five Krazy & Ignatz softcover books we have published, comprehensively compiling the years 1935 through 1944, 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 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.) 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).
