Two items which are due to arrive in this week's shipment to comic shops were not published by us but are of interest, one of which we are distributing and the other of which comes from one of the "big two":
by Hans Rickheit
136-page black & white 5.5" x 8.5" softcover • $10.95
Contrary to what is being reported, this is not a new printing of Hans Rickheit's Xeric-winning 2002 graphic novella which preceded The Squirrel Machine: this is the original self-published edition, which we are distributing to the Direct Market for the first time (via Adult Previews, due to the book's mature content). View some sample artwork here.
"...[R]un, don't walk, to get that book. Rickheit's a major talent and that book is something erotic and special. It's like a dirty secret." – Sean T. Collins, Attentiondeficitdisorderly
"Filthy, filthy comics by Hans Rickheit..." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter
And Marvel releases Deadpool #1000, which features stories by Michael Kupperman (above) and Peter Bagge among others. I have never read a Deadpool comic before, but there's a first time for everything.
Hit up your local shop for your purchasing needs. It looks like we'll have at least a couple of official Fantagraphics releases hitting stores next week so stay tuned.
