Black River by Josh Simmons - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJosh SimmonsComing Attractions 25 Feb 2015 4:50 PM

A bedraggled group of travelers finds an abandoned storehouse full of rations, fresh water, alcohol, and supplies. They celebrate, even as one of them uncovers a dead body in a dark corner.

Anyone who has read Josh Simmons' previous work can already guess that such celebration will be short-lived. In his latest full-length graphic novel, Black River, Simmons takes us to a post-apocalyptic world of desperation, survival of the most brutal, and chaos in the form of gangs, a drug called Gumdrop, and resource scarcity. In the midst of this, a group of nine travelers and their two dogs do their best to survive, hoping against hope to find safe haven.

Read our 9-page, downloadable PDF excerpt here, then go pre-order your copy for a May delivery! And make sure to keep tabs on our Flog and social media for more previews and author appearances.

Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under videopreviewsHarvey KurtzmanBill Schelly 25 Feb 2015 11:50 AM

Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America
by Bill Schelly

644-page 6" x 9" hardcover
$34.99 | 978-1-60699-761-1

Ships in: April 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Harvey Kurtzman created MAD, and MAD revolutionized humor in America. Kurtzman's groundwork as the original editor, artist, and sole writer of MAD provided the foundation for one of the greatest publishing successes of the 20th century. But how did Kurtzman invent MAD, and why did he leave it shortly after it burst nova-like onto the American scene? Bill Schelly's heavily researched biography finally and fully answers these question for the first time. Through fresh interviews with Kurtzman's colleagues, friends and family, including Hugh Hefner, Al Feldstein, James Warren, R. Crumb, Jack Davis, Gilbert Shelton, and many others, and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives, this book tells the true story of one of the 20th century's greatest humorists. His family life, an FBI investigation during the McCarthy Era, his legal battles with William M. Gaines (publisher of MAD), all are revealed for the first time. Rich with anecdotes, from Kurtzman's Brooklyn beginnings to his post-MAD years, when his ceaseless creativity produced more innovations: new magazines, a graphic novel, and "Little Annie Fanny" in Playboy.

Dripping with Fear: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 5
edited by Blake Bell

240-page color 7.25" x 10" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-706-2

Ships in: March 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Dripping With Fear: The Steve Ditko Archives Volume 5 features another 200-plus meticulously restored, full-color pages from Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko in his early prime, at the time working in near anonymity for Charlton Comics in the then-popular horror/suspense genre.

Comics like Tales of The Mysterious Traveler and This Magazine Is Haunted saw an explosion in Ditko’s ingenuity, as he manipulated the traditional comic-book page layout with masterful results.

It was during this time that Ditko and his art-school colleague, the famed fetish artist Eric Stanton, began sharing a studio in Manhattan. The introduction by editor Blake Bell examines Ditko’s stylistic evolution and delves deep into his association with Stanton. Ditko’s secret collaborations with Stanton on his female bondage material remain a highly controversial topic, and Bell’s introduction highlights numerous examples that prove the allegedly shy and private Ditko contributed with wild abandon to these risqué tales of titillation.

This fifth volume stands as the best example yet of the Steve Ditko that would soon begin crafting such iconic classics as Spider-Man and Doctor Strange alongside Stan Lee at Marvel Comics.

Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980
curated by Pat Thomas and Alan Abrahams

200-page black & white 9" x 12" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-786-4

Ships in: March 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Throughout Les McCann's incredible jazz career, he took hundreds of photos — at clubs, studios, and festivals around the world — and unwittingly documented a side of the vibrant cultural life of jazz and soul between 1960 and 1980 that includes a very young Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sammy Davis Jr., John Coltrane, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, Quincy Jones, Tina Turner, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderly, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, B.B. King, Errol Garner, Stanley Clarke, Bill Evans, Lionel Hampton, and other seminal African-Americans, such as Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Muhammed Ali, and Stokely Carmichael to name but a few. These photos are characterized by their intimacy, and the cross-section of names listed is merely the tip of the iceberg. The book features candid commentary by McCann himself and is curated by Pat Thomas (Listen, Whitey!: The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975) and maverick music producer Alan Abrahams (Pure Prairie League, Joan Baez, Stanley Turrentine, Kris Kristofferson, Taj Mahal).
