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.)

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

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12 by Linda Medley

Castle Waiting Vol. II #12
By Linda Medley

This is the long-awaited special all-bowling issue, as Henry, Dayne, Chess, Tolly, Peace and Simon wage an all-out ninepin war... and it turns out one of them has heretofore unsuspected bowling skills! Like all good sports competitions it's a high-stakes battle to the very last frame. Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, Dinah and Jain pull out more and more dresses from the bottomless trunk and use a not-terribly-resistant Rackham to model them. All this, plus conjectures about what the heck's going on with the mysterious, elusive, and somewhat sinister Dr. Fell.

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

Ghost World: Special Edition by Daniel Clowes

Ghost World: Special Edition
By Daniel Clowes

This deluxe new edition of our most popular book ever expands the original graphic novel — which tells the story of two best friends, Enid and Rebecca, facing the prospect of growing up and apart — from 80 pages into a 288 page, behind-the-scenes tour through the making of both the classic book and the subsequent hit film. Including a new introduction and several pages of new strips by Clowes, as well as over 200 pages of ‘extras’: the Oscar-nominated screenplay by Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, dozens of pages of never-before-collected ephemera, including unused concept drawings, notes, movie posters, foreign edition covers, merchandise, artwork created for the movie by Clowes, Sophie Crumb and the cast, and much more, all annotated by Clowes. Truly lavish, definitive and comprehensive.

288-page duotone and full-color 7.5" x 10.75" hardcover • $39.99

(NOTE: Our contest for the drawing to win the limited-edition signed Ghost World exhibit poster is now closed as of midnight last night. We will announce the winner as soon as we figure out who it is. Stay tuned! We are also down to the very last of the signed bookplates, which will likely be gone today or tomorrow. First come, first served, so don't delay!)
