Inner City Romance by Guy Colwell - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPatrick RosenkranzGuy ColwellComing Attractions 5 Dec 2014 11:15 AM

Inner City Romance collects every issue of the underground comix series drawn by artist Guy Colwell in the '70s, and in previewing this book, we found some of the parallels with our country's current socio-political climate to be a little too close for comfort.

The 18-page, 4.6 MB downloadable excerpt we've got for you today features the full introduction by comics historian and journalist, Patrick Rosenkranz, followed by the first five pages of Inner City Romance #1.

Pre-order your copy of this book now for a February 2015 delivery!

Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade by Wilfred Santiago - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Wilfred Santiagopreviewsnew releases 5 Dec 2014 10:25 AM

Praise for 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente:

"…Wilfred Santiago captures the physical grace of baseball and creates a story of visceral and emotional force… Santiago… has produced a rich and surprising work. The compositions and framing are intricate and varied… Santiago captures Clemente’s relentless vitality as a player, frames the story around the historical and religious traditions of Puerto Rico, and handles Clemente’s tragic death with restraint, all with a gimlet eye and the sensitivity of a true artist. It is a classic story given new life in this fresh, innovative telling." – Alex Belth, Sports Illustrated

"…21's eloquence is visual, and it is a very real eloquence. The character of Roberto Clemente is nearly hugged to death in this particular portrayal: he’s virtuous and charming and earnest and respectful to elders… But the world around him is alive, and Santiago's expressive (and occasionally, bracingly expressionistic) approach to portraying Clemente’s wild athletic genius ensures that it remains thrillingly present… [A] fitting and vital tribute." – David Roth, Los Angeles Review of Books

Inner City Romance by Guy Colwell - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsGuy ColwellComing Attractions 4 Dec 2014 12:20 PM

Inner City Romance by Guy Colwell - Cover

Guy Colwell, an American painter and underground cartoonist, has drawn comix reflecting on economic inequality, injustice, racism, and the prison system since 1972. Titled Inner City Romance, these comics were catalyzed by his experience in jail for draft refusal, and every issue is included in this new book collecting Colwell's work. Sadly, the issues that fueled Colwell's work and activism are as relevant now as they were four decades ago.

We are pleased to reveal the final cover art for Inner City Romance for you—and to announce the book's availability for pre-order beginning today.

Displacement by Lucy Knisley - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesLucy Knisley 4 Dec 2014 10:30 AM

"…the talented Knisley offers a pointed juxtaposition to her earlier travelogue set in Europe. When her grandparents Phyllis and Allen decided to take a cruise ship to the Caribbean, the author (recovering from a recent breakup) accompanied them on the 10-day journey… A moving but also very funny meditation on time, age and grace." – Kirkus Reviews
