Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPat ThomasLes McCannComing AttractionsAlan Abrahams 30 Dec 2014 3:45 PM

Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 - Cover

Portraits shot at the right moment are like the fermata on a pitch perfect note.

Les McCann, jazz musician and photographer, was able to capture such moments of intimacy from legendary jazz singers and musicians. Feast your eyes on the first look of our finished cover art to McCann's retrospective, Invitation to Openness, curated and introduced by Pat Thomas (Listen Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975). Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, Donald Dean, and Nina Simone (as well as comedian Redd Foxx) grace the cover, a tiny sampling of the vast array of photographs that McCann took throughout his career.

Invitation to Openness is coming soon from Fantagraphics, a refrain you'll read and hear often until its March release, striking a chord within the hearts of photography fans and lovers of jazz alike.

Love and Rockets: New Stories #7 by Los Bros Hernandez - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesLove and RocketsLos Bros HernandezJaime HernandezGilbert Hernandez 19 Dec 2014 10:00 AM

Praise for the Series:

"In the 30 years they’ve been writing and drawing Love and Rockets, Los Bros Hernandez have created wonderfully complex story lines and characters… This web of superior magical-realistic storytelling involves readers in the perplexed yearnings of a huge cast of unforgettable characters unaware of their own capacity for general self-delusion and occasional self-discovery." – Publishers Weekly

"Los Bros. are plain-spoken and sympathetic, finding pathos in even the grimiest character." – Sam Thielman, Newsday

"There are acclaimed filmmakers and novelists who can’t do what Jaime Hernandez does — or Gilbert, for that matter. When the two of them are at their most inspired, as they are here, they make almost every other comics creator today look like a fumbling hack. [Grade] A" – The A.V. Club

Saint Cole by Noah Van Sciver - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsNoah Van Sciver 18 Dec 2014 8:00 AM

Saint Cole
by Noah Van Sciver

116-page black & white 7.5" x 9.25" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-817-5

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

Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe who feels trapped working overtime at a pizza restaurant to support his girlfriend, Nicole, and their infant child. Especially when Nicole invites her troubled mother, Angela, to move into their two-bedroom apartment until she lands on her feet again. Joe reacts to this development by further retreating into alcohol. He thinks he loves Nicole but resents her at the same time. They probably wouldn’t still be with each other if she hadn’t become pregnant. Joe wants out. He’s angry. He’s in a position to act rashly. And he does. This sophomore graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver may seem like a left turn from his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel biography of Abraham Lincoln (The Hypo), yet upon closer reflection, it continues Van Sciver’s interest in pathos and the human condition.

Our tenth volume finds our band of heroes making their way back to the Kingdom of Thule by way of Constantinople and Eastern Russia. Soon they are attacked by a tribe of barbarians who kidnap Aleta for the great Dragada Khan who wants to make her one of his wives. After nearly being killed in battle, Valiant returns to his homeland only to find the threat of hunger hovers over Thule. As Val explores new ways of feeding the kingdom's growing populace, raiders threaten the lives of his family and friends. The volume ends with Val's return to Camelot, a tournament of champions, and the threat of new treachery in Cornwall. This volume also includes an introduction by legendary comics artist Timothy Truman, and a special gallery containing more of Hal Foster's incredible Mountie paintings annotated by comics historian Brian M. Kane.
