Young Romance 2 by Joe Simon & Jack Kirby - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMichel GagneJoe SimonJack Kirby 24 Jan 2014 1:17 PM

"Simon found he had a knack for tangled melodrama set in very specific milieus, while Kirby drew ordinary men and women with the same sweaty fervor that he lent to monsters and costumed do-gooders....All of which means that the Michel Gagné-edited collection Young Romance... isn’t just a book of some minor historical interest; it’s a genuinely entertaining and artful set of comics, and in some ways more readable than Simon and Kirby's adventure stories." – Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"Simon and Kirby tried to bring as much excitement to primarily psychological and interpersonal goings-on as to punching and flying.” – Paste

"...[T]hese comics are among the best in their genre without a doubt." – Eddie Campbell, The Comics Journal

"...[Young Romance] is a real treat, an inexpensive way to read a nice sampling of some Kirby comics that any Kirby fanatic has to be curious about. Michel Gagné did a great job assembling a fun cross-section of stories... Rating: ★★★★★" – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

"Young Romance underscores Simon and Kirby’s keen storytelling skills. Adhering to a mostly six-panel grid, the duo manage to produce work that is visually arresting and dramatic... For Kirby fans and those who just love to explore comics from generations past, it’s a rather essential read." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6

Unlovable Vol. 3 by Esther Pearl Watson - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsEsther Pearl WatsonComing Attractions 23 Jan 2014 4:35 PM

Summer vacation comes in May — at least it does for indefatigable teen loser Tammy Pierce, who's back for more hilarious humiliation and adorkable adventure in Unlovable Vol. 3 by Esther Pearl Watson!

In our downloadable preview, it's 1989, school's out, and it's time for movie rentals (Beaches or Terminator?), hanging out with friends (or not), trips to the mall, pining for last year's crush, getting lectured by Mom to get a job, giving makeovers, and busting a move at the old folks' home!

Based on an actual teenager's diary found in a gas station rest room, Unlovable brilliantly mines comedy from the everyday life of its awkward and oblivious heroine. Get in on the fun by pre-ordering today, and if you're late to the party, pick up all 3 volumes for a nice discount!

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMatt ThornmangaInio Asano 23 Jan 2014 11:55 AM

"Inio Asano is one of the best new manga creators, hands down." – Shaenon Garrity, About.com

"Inio Asano is one of the great emerging voices in manga… [Nijigahara Holograph] is guaranteed to be one of the books of the year, and should help cement Asano's reputation." – ComicsAlliance

"Asano is so young, and [his] ability to talk about human nature, and the distress of becoming an adult is equally painful and beautiful. [He] is in my opinion one of the best and more moving storytellers working nowadays." – Emma Rios (Pretty Deadly)

Nijigahara Holograph (虹ヶ原ホログラフ)
by Inio Asano
translated by Matt Thorn

296-page black & white 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-583-9

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

Even as butterflies ominously proliferate in town, the rumor of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school spreads among the children. When the body of Arié Kimura's mother is found by this tunnel's entrance, next to apparently human traces, the legend seems to be confirmed. Is the end of the world coming? In order to appease the wrath of the beast, the children decide to offer it a sacrifice: The unfortunate Arié, whom they believe to be the cause of the curse, is shoved into a well that leads to the Nijigahara tunnel — an act that in turns pushes Komatsuzaki, the budding thug who has carried a torch for Arié for a while already, entirely over the edge.

But this is only the beginning of the complex, challenging, obliquely told Nijigahara Holograph, which takes place in two separate timelines and involves the suicidal Suzuki; Higure, his stalkerish would-be girlfriend; their teacher Miss Sakaki, whose heavily bandaged face remains a mystery; and many more — brothers, sisters, parents, co-workers, teachers, aggressors and victims who are all inextricably linked to one another and all will eventually — ten years later — have to live with what they’ve done or suffered through.

Asano, whose Solanin was nominated for the 2009 Eisner and Harvey comics awards (and which was made into a feature film in 2010), delves into disturbing territory with this Lynchian horror story, told in his unnervingly crisp and detailed panels.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Roy CranepreviewsComing Attractions 21 Jan 2014 11:24 AM

Buz is back for another volume of romance and adventure! Buz Sawyer Vol. 3: Typhoons and Honeymoons collects two more years of Roy Crane's masterful strip, from 1947-1948.

In our downloadable excerpt, Buz reluctantly skips out on his vacation and heads to the West Indies to help his old Navy buddy Thirsty out of a jam — which turns out to be an acute case of cold feet over impending marriage. Thirsty sends Buz to let his bride-to-be down easy, but it turns out his real plans are more devious, and things get complicated. On top of all that, a hurricane blows through and a slick character washes up with designs on Thirsty's now-disenchanted belle. Plus, a few full-color Sunday strips starring Buz's pal Rosco Sweeney! Will Thirsty get the girl? And what about Buz's girl Christy back home? Pre-order the book now and find out when you get your copy in March!
