Bomb Run and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by John Severin - Video/Photo Slideshow Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Will Eldervideopreviewsnew releasesJohn SeverinHarvey KurtzmanEC Comics 24 Apr 2014 4:06 PM

Bomb Run and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)
by John Severin, Harvey Kurtzman, Will Elder et al.

264-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-749-9

Ships in: June 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

The team of Harvey Kurtzman and John Severin was one of the most fruitful collaborations in the history of comics. The work they did combines the taut emotional and psychological insights of Stephen Crane with a verisimilitude so gritty that it seems as if they are reporting from the scene. Together with inker and friend Will Elder, whose own obsession for detail perfectly heightened the impact of every line, they produced 34 war stories — emotionally draining and dramatically eloquent — in just under three years. This book collects them all. Settings include: the Roman empire; the Revolutionary War; the American-Indian Wars; the Alamo; the Civil War; World War I (in the trenches and in the air); World War II (in the Pacific and in Europe, including the D-Day invasion); and the Korean War.

"The minute you looked at his artwork you knew you were looking at a John Severin illustration; it could be no one else. Besides his inimitable style, there was a feeling of total authenticity to whatever he drew, whether it was a Western, a crime story, a superhero saga or a science fiction yarn." – Stan Lee

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesJoe OrlandoEC ComicsAl Feldstein 23 Apr 2014 11:15 AM

"All of these books are essential purchases for comics fans… These are the books that best show off how EC took genre stories seriously, striving to create comics that didn't treat readers as naive or ignorant." – Los Angeles Times

"Fantagraphics' current series of handsome hardcovers makes familiar material fresh by focusing on individual artists... it's never been easier to appreciate the contributions of these iconic inkslingers." – Chicago Tribune

"...I am not only appreciative...but also very impressed. [The books] are spectacular packages of their featured artist and their stories." – Al Feldstein

"These collections show comics in a pure, unadulterated form. Before the Superhero frenzy, before '60s cynicism, and just before the Comics Code Authority started trimming all the gory and sexy fun from the pages with their seal of approval." – Under the Radar

BARGAIN COMBO:
Unlovable Vols. 1-3 Gift Set
Price: $68.98 $55.18

Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials — too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc. — as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of high school through Tammy's naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable's universal humor and loser cast of characters. Tammy's life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly endearing and hilarious.

"There are certain things about my family Mom always preferred to keep hush hush."

The suppression of family history and the cumulative effects of these secrets are the initial threads that tie together this masterful graphic novel from Jaime Hernandez. Much like John Updike in his four Rabbit novels, Hernandez has been following his longtime heroine, Maggie Chascarillo, for several decades, all of which has seemed to build towards The Love Bunglers.
