We'll be revealing video and photo previews of a half-dozen of our upcoming releases over the next few days. First up, the next two entries in our Ignatz Series: Delphine #3 by Richard Sala and Grotesque #2 by Sergio Ponchione. Spine-tinglers both! Watch the videos above and take a closer look in our two photo galleries: Delphine, Grotesque.
We are pleased to present this animated video trailer created by artist Dash Shaw for his graphic novel Bottomless Belly Button. He sent it to us last week and our jaws have been on the floor ever since. Watch the streaming video above; you can also download the original, higher-res Quicktime file (68.5 MB). Note that the video is silent, so there is no need to adjust your audio settings. If you wish to link to this video, please direct your link to this permanent archive page.
Here is the Strand bookstore's video widget, from which you can watch last night's Jules Feiffer presentation. (As a bonus, you can also watch Gary Panter with Jonathan Lethem.) If you come across this blog entry in the future and don't see the Feiffer link (or there's a live video feed going on), click the "highlights" tab; if you still don't see the link, click here to access the video on the Strand website. (And if you keep navigating the "highlights" tab, you'll find Alexander Theroux's reading from last February as well.)
For over a year Bob Staake has been working with London animation studio Wyld Stallyons to produce an animated version of his book Struwwelpeter (part of our Blab! Storybook series). The second animation test is now online for the world to see and dang if it doesn't look great -- Staake's work is beautifully suited to modern animation techniques. (There's also a downloadable Quicktime version. And don't forget to visit Bob's official site for the book.)
Hot on the heels of the release of the new edition of Rebel Visions: The Underground Comix Revolution 1963-1975 by Patrick Rosenkranz, we are pleased to present these multimedia features relating to the book. All items are courtesy the author.
Below, a promotional video trailer for the original hardcover edition, produced by the author in 2003, featuring video and audio interviews with Gilbert Shelton, R. Crumb, Rick Griffin, Spain Rodriguez, Robert Williams and Justin Green:
The following video presents footage of a book signing and reading, in conjunction with an exhibit of original Underground comic art, held at the CounterMedia bookstore in Portland, Oregon on December 20, 2002:
