Spring-Summer 2014, part 14: Luba, Gast, Gems
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Love and RocketsLane MilburnKickstarterGilbert HernandezComing AttractionsCarol Swain 26 Nov 2013 5:43 PM

Our campaign to support our Spring-Summer 2014 season on Kickstarter is ongoing, and we're continuing to spotlight the books in question, a couple at a time. (We missed yesterday, so we're doing 3 today.) We've also put our season catalog online for you to browse. (Please note that all artwork, contents, prices, specs, and release dates are preliminary and subject to change.)

Luba and Her Family prelim cover

Luba and Her Family (The Love and Rockets Library)
by Gilbert Hernandez

312-page black & white 7.5" x 9.25" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-753-6 

Gilbert Hernandez's characters bid "Farewell, My Palomar" as they exit the Eden of the Central American town in Volume 10 of the Love and Rockets Library. Locals have begun to drift up to the United States to seek their fortunes, but when an earthquake levels Palomar, ever-resourceful Luba and her clan are on the move once again. In the U.S. the lives of Maria's daughters — mayor and matriarch Luba, body-builder Petra, and therapist/film star Fritz — and their families become more and more intertwined. Mischievous children's show hostess Doralís MCs many (but not all) of the sisters' romances, and exploits are detailed in missives from comics-loving Venus to her fierce, one-armed cousin Casimira.

Gast prelim cover

Gast
by Carol Swain

176-page black & white 7.5" x 10.25" • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-755-0

Helen is an amateur bird watcher and naturalist who lives in a rural community in Wales. When local farmer Bill tells Helen that a "rare bird" named Emrys killed himself at Cuddig farm, she decides to investigate. One of the dogs at the farm tells her, by way of explanation, that Emrys "had no feathers and couldn’t fly." She plucks an old cosmetic kit from a dumpster and discovers it belonged to Emrys. Inventorying the kit's contents, she finds a spent .12 gauge shotgun shell. Her attempt to learn more about Emrys turns into a journey of self-discovery and ultimately a hard-fought reconciliation with the world — as it is. Carol Swain's Gast is the rare kind of contemporary graphic novel that critics are conjuring when they exult over the promise of the art form — a philosophically mature vision, uniquely executed by an artist wholly in control of her craft. In Gast, Helen's inner life is slowly revealed through a mixture of naturalistic detail and phantasmagoric occurrences.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $30 or more, pre-order this book signed by Carol Swain while supplies last!

Twelve Gems prelim cover

Twelve Gems
by Lane Milburn

220-page black & white 5.75" x 8.5" softcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-751-2 

This sci-fi epic takes place somewhere in the outer cosmos, beyond reckoning or observation. The mysterious Dr. Z has enlisted three space heroes to search the galaxy for the fabled Twelve Gems of Power: the hulking alien-brawn Furz; the beautiful and deadly sabre-wielding Venus; and the soft-spoken canine technician, Dogstar. They meet many strange and storied characters on their journey, but none so strange or sinister as their dear benefactor himself. With a heavy dose of humor and wall-to-wall action, this is one of the most action-packed and funny books of the year.

For a Kickstarter pledge of $35 or more, pre-order this book signed by Lane Milburn while supplies last! Or, for a pledge of $40 or more, get an exclusive Twelve Gems t-shirt! Or, for a pledge of $60 or more, get the book, signed, with a sketch, and one of twelve hand-made Power Gems! (Or increase your pledge to the sum of all the rewards you want!)
