The Ghost of the Grotto, Starring Walt Disney's Donald Duck by Carl Barks - Inside Page

Here's your first look at Carl Barks' The Ghost of the Grotto, due out later this fall. Sunken ships, a giant octopus, an ominously named reef, and a centuries-old mystery in the West Indies—plus many other short stories besides—await you between these covers!

This panel of a very surprised giant octopus is one of my favorites in the book. You can see more of Barks' excellent storytelling in our downloadable preview, and then you might mosey on over to the book page to pre-order a copy!

How to Be Happy
by Eleanor Davis

152-page color/b&w 7.75" x 10.125" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-740-6

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

Eleanor Davis's How to Be Happy is the artist's first collection of graphic/literary short stories, and it’s about time. Davis is one of the finest cartoonists of her generation, and has been producing comics since the mid-2000s. Happy represents the best stories she's drawn for such connoisseurial venues as Mome, Nobrow, and Lucky Peach, as well as her own self-publishing and web efforts. Davis achieves a rare, subtle poignancy in her narratives that are at once compelling and elusive, pregnant with mystery and a deeply satisfying emotional resonance. Happy shows the full range of Davis's graphic skills — sketchy drawing, polished pen-and-ink line work, and meticulously designed full-color painted panels — which are always in the service of a narrative that builds to a quietly devastating climax.

Gast
by Carol Swain

176-page black & white 7.5" x 10" softcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-755-0

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

Helen is an amateur bird watcher and naturalist who lives in a rural community in Wales. When local farmer Bill tells Helen that a "rare bird" named Emrys killed himself at Cuddig farm, she decides to investigate. One of the dogs at the farm tells her, by way of explanation, that Emrys "had no feathers and couldn’t fly." She plucks an old cosmetic kit from a dumpster and discovers it belonged to Emrys. Inventorying the kit's contents, she finds a spent .12 gauge shotgun shell. Her attempt to learn more about Emrys turns into a journey of self-discovery and ultimately a hard-fought reconciliation with the world — as it is. Carol Swain's Gast is the rare kind of contemporary graphic novel that critics are conjuring when they exult over the promise of the art form — a philosophically mature vision, uniquely executed by an artist wholly in control of her craft. In Gast, Helen's inner life is slowly revealed through a mixture of naturalistic detail and phantasmagoric occurrences.

Ghost of the Grotto Starring Walt Disney's Donald Duck by Carl Barks - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDisneyCarl Barks 30 Jun 2014 1:10 PM

It's one harebrained adventure after another when Donald Duck and his incorrigible nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie are at the helm. While aboard a kelp-harvesting boat in the West Indies, the entrepreneurially-minded ducks find themselves in the middle of a centuries-long mystery: a kidnapping every fifty years by a ghost in armor. This time, the ghost is after one of Donald's nephews!

This and other short stories are collected in the first of our new line of half-height, kid-sized Donald Duck books. Ghost of the Grotto is slated for an October 2014 release. Check out our downloadable 18-page excerpt (2.7 MB) and pre-order your copy here.

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of the Sun by Don Rosa - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDon RosaDisneyComing Attractions 23 Jun 2014 6:34 PM

In this first volume collecting Don Rosa's prolific and well-loved work, Scrooge McDuck is curating a museum exhibit to display his vast collections of riches and wonders, making the bold statement that he is "both the world's richest duck and the champion treasure hunter." This statement is pompously challenged by Scrooge's longtime rival Flintheart Glomgold — and thus begins a frenzied contest to find a rare, long-lost Incan treasure: the legendary gold stores of Manco Capac, the Son of the Sun!

The Son of the Sun will be out in stores by late September. Read the first part of our intrepid ducks' journey with a downloadable 18-page excerpt, then continue the heart-pounding, high-flying adventure by pre-ordering your copy here.

An Age of License by Lucy Knisley - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsLucy KnisleyComing Attractions 5 Jun 2014 3:01 PM

August just keeps looking better and better! Among the dizzyingly beautiful books we're excited to bring to you in two months is best-selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley's newest book, a travelogue documenting her trip throughout Europe in the fall of 2011.

An Age of License follows Lucy as she navigates new countries, new experiences, and new romance, all rendered in an often-whimsical, sometimes stream-of-consciousness style that perfectly captures her moments of introspection between the memories she captures on the road. This part narration, part sketchbook format takes us right into Lucy's thoughts and revelations.

Download the 22-page excerpt and, to continue following Lucy's travels, pre-order your copy today!
