The Late Child and Other Animals
by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger

180-page color 8" x 10" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-789-5

Hetty survives the bombing of Portsmouth by the Nazis in World War II, only to learn that her soldier husband — with whom she was in the process of adopting a young daughter — has been killed on the way back home from North Africa. She must then complete the adoption alone. A decade later, she gives birth to a bastard daughter, Marguerite. Now Hetty must go before a tribunal to prove that she is a fit mother — or possibly lose both her children. From there, The Late Child and Other Animals tells the story of little Marguerite's childhood in the recovering British naval port and the rural beauty of the Isle of Wight and in Normandy, France. The journeys and struggles over decades of this mother and daughter are linked in five episodes that veer between lyricism, wry wit, and harrowing suspense.

The Late Child and Other Animals is an original graphic novel, a generational autobiography written by legendary punk diva and award-winning poet Marguerite Van Cook, adapted by artist James Romberger, the creator of the Eisner-nominated Post York. The team of Romberger and Van Cook is also responsible for the adaptation and art of 7 Miles a Second, their critically acclaimed graphic memoir collaboration with the late multimedia artist and AIDS activist, David Wojnarowicz.

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Cover

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Inside Page

Oooooooooh yes. Just give yourself a minute or two to take in that sexy, sexy cover. That metallic stamp and spot varnish! That texture!

Yes, we are quite excited to show off these shiny advance copies of Cochlea & Eustachia that have arrived at our desk. Fresh from the twisted, surreal mind of Hans Rickheit, this graphic novella easily holds up to a rereading—or three—as the beautifully detailed (and often grotesque) roomscapes encourage your eyes to wander, explore, and revisit past panels. Look for this book in stores in November, or pre-order your copy here.

Our next Don Rosa Library book is here, filled with more richly dense and action-packed stories featuring our favorite duck family! It's easy to lose oneself in the page after page of Don Rosa's stories and artwork, and we may in fact have been slightly delayed in putting up these photos, such was the draw of reading each and every tale. And—what's this?—the first box set collecting volumes 1 and 2 of the Don Rosa Library is at our office as well?

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful and The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1-2 Gift Box Set are due to hit store shelves in just a few measly weeks, so hold on tight! We've got plenty of previews in store for you until then.

The Complete Peanuts 1993-1994 (Vol. 22) by Charles M. Schulz - Photo/Video Slideshow

The Complete Peanuts 1993-1994 (Vol. 22)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page color 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-773-4

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

Even the most devoted Peanuts fan will be surprised by revisiting Schulz's last decade of work. Schulz's cartooning has never been more expressive, and his sense of humor never more unencumbered by formula or tradition. In one sequence, the gang waits… and waits… for a school bus that never comes. Another shockingly showcases Charlie Brown hitting a game-winning home run—off Roy Hobbs's great-granddaughter? Then, Linus lobbies the White House to nominate Snoopy for a Supreme Court seat (it would go to Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Woodstock discovers his long-lost grandfather's diary, detailing a hard life in captivity (birdcage). Snoopy lands in the hospital with pneumonia, and all three of his brothers—Andy, Spike, and Olaf—come pay their respects. This is the 22nd volume (of 25) of the best-selling series collecting every single one of the 18,000-plus strips created by Schulz from 1950-2000.

Set to Sea [Softcover Ed.] by Drew Weing - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesDrew Weing 9 Oct 2014 10:50 AM

"Drew Weing’s beautiful art and masterful pacing are so pleasurable that Set To Sea stands up to multiple reads. It’s a catchy little tune that sounds better with each spin.” – The AV Club

"The book contains very little dialogue, so it’s Weing’s images themselves that do the narrative work. And they’re a singular mix: in the foreground, bright, cartoony figures that look like they’re moonlighting from an E.C. Segar Popeye comic strip; in the background, densely crosshatched, painstakingly detailed seascapes." – NPR

"With hints of The Odyssey, Moby Dick, Popeye and Treasure Island, Weing has created a modern classic in the pirate genre." – School Library Journal
