Vesa Sisättö: Reilua orjakauppaa ja muita tulevaisuuden uutisia 

Ennustaminen on vaikeaa, erityisesti tulevaisuuden ennustaminen.

Tämä teos on laadittu, jotta kaikki tuleva ei kaatuisi päälle täysin yllätyksenä. Kirjassa käsitellään muun muassa millaista olisi elämä todellisuudessa, jossa Paavo Väyrynen hallitsee elinikäisenä presidenttinä, jossa reilun kaupan orjat luovat hyvinvointia ja someväki kokoontuu omille suviseuroilleen.
Synkkiäkin asioita saattaa tapahtua, ihmiskunta voidaan käännyttää Linnunradalta paperittomuuden vuoksi tai maailma tuhoutua, koska joku oli liian monta kertaa väärässä internetissä.

Reilua orjakauppaa -teoksen satiiriset mutta enteelliset uutiset ovat ilmestyneet Vihreä lanka -lehden kolumneina. Aiheet liikkuvat maan ja taivaan välillä ja kokeneen kuvittajan, Kari Sihvosen tyylikäs visualisoi nämä mahdolliset tapahtumat ytimekkäästi.

Vesa Sisättö (s. 1969) on espoolainen toimittaja ja tietokirjailija. Hän on ollut mukana tekemässä useita kirjallisuusaiheisia tietoteoksia sekä kirjoittanut itse fiktiivisiä romaaneja. Sisättö on erikoistunut tieteis- ja fantasiakirjallisuuteen.

Emmin elämä on helvettiä. On ollut niin kauan kuin hän muistaa. Armo kertoo tästä elämästä, uskomattomista seikkailuista baarien, makuuhuoneiden, väkivallantekojen, harhojen ja mielisairaaloiden syövereissä.

Emmi Valveen omaelämäkerrallinen sarjakuvaromaani on suora, karu ja hurja ja höystetty isolla määrällä mustaa huumoria.

Berliac: Kaikkimeni.exe (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

Kaikkimeni.exe on sarja surrealistisia sarjakuvanovelleja, jotka kääntävät näkyville ihmisen sisällä kuplivat aineet: pelon, vainoharhaisuuden, raukkamaisuuden. Berliacin ihmiset ovat piinaavan hauskoja ja heidän tekonsa ovat aina epätoivoisia ja harvoin tahdonalaisia.

Berliacin kuvallinen tyyli ammentaa japanilaisesta mangasta ja pop-kulttuurista.

Berliac (s. 1982) on syntynyt Argentiinassa ja asuu nykyään Berliinissä. Hänen töitään ovat julkaisseet mm. New York Times, Le Monde Diplomatique ja Vice.

From writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone, SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL VOL. 1: EARTH GIRL MADE EASY—a bold new reimagining of one of comics’ maddest and most memorable characters and part of the DC’s Young Animal imprint led by rock-star Gerard Way.

Loma Shade may be from another planet, but she’s still like every other twenty something who feels that their life is going nowhere fast. Bored out of her mind, her solution is to drop out of school, dump her boyfriend and leave her homeworld of Meta behind—courtesy of the infamous “madness coat” of renegade poet Rac Shade, which is not so much a garment as it is a multidimensional gateway.

After stealing the coat and astrally projecting herself across space, Loma ends up in the body of Megan Boyer, an Earth girl who seems to have it all: youth, beauty and a conveniently damaged brain. Following her “miraculous” recovery, however, Loma finds there’s just one problem with being Megan: Everyone hates her. She was a bully who terrorized her enemies and her friends alike, and now Loma’s stuck with the consequences.

To make matters worse, back on Meta there are dark forces that want Rac’s dangerously valuable coat for their own nefarious purposes, and they’re closing in on Loma’s vulnerable physical body. At the same time, the primal madness that the coat channels is slowly, irresistibly eroding Loma’s equally vulnerable soul.

With two new lives to live, can this Changing Girl survive either one without losing her mind?

Risto Isomäki & Petri Tolppanen & Jussi Kaakinen: Sarasvatin hiekkaa

Kuinka paljon aikaa on ennen hyökyaaltoja?

Sarasvatin hiekkaa sijoittuu lähitulevaisuuteen, Suomeen ja maailmalle, Grönlannin mannerjäätikölle ja Intian valtameren alueelle.
Venäläinen tutkija Sergej yrittää yhdessä intialaisen tutkijayhteisön ja kollegansa Amritan kanssa selvittää Cambaynlahdesta meren alta löytyvän vajonneen kaupungin arvoitusta.
Samaan aikaan suomalainen Kari Ahola yrittää kehittää ratkaisua jäätiköiden sulamisongelmaan. Jäätiköitä tukii myös Grönlannissa tukikohtaansa pitävä tutkimusyksikkö ja filippiiniläissyntyinen erakko Susan Chang.

Kaksi erillista tutkimuslinjaa tangeeraavat toisiaan, ja tutkijat ymmärtävät, että jäätiköiden sulamisen seurauksena maapalloa uhkaa kaiken tuhoava tsunamikatastrofi ja vedenpaisumus. Vaikka tutkijat ovat osanneet ennustaa jättiaaltojen synnyn, onko heillä aikaa estää niiden vyöry?

Komea sarjakuvasovitus Risto Isomäen ekologisesta trilleristä palkittiin Sarjakuva-Finlandialla maaliskuussa 2009. Into Kustannus julkaisee sarjakuva uudistettuna laitoksena sekä suomeksi että englanniksi.

Puuttuvien varpaiden arvoitus vie pariskunnan syvälle maan uumeniin, kylmän kiven ympäröimään pimeyteen.

Sarjakuvataiteilija Brocin ja kauhukirjailija Marko Hautalan yhteistyö kutsuu piinaavalle matkalle ihmismielen syvyyksiin.

Risto Isomäki & Petri Tolppanen & Jussi Kaakinen: The Sands of Sarasvati

How much time do we have before the tsunami?

A Finnish researcher Kari Alanen is investigating solutions to the melting of the continental ice sheets and makes a disturbing discovery while vacationing in the Caribbean. Susan Cheng and her team in Greenland are also studying the glaciers.

Amrita believes that the ancient accounts of Atlantis, the Flood, lost civilizations and seven sages being saved in the ark seem to have something to do with all of this. From these seemingly unrelated observations a frightening picture begins to take shape of a future that is already knocking at he door.

New, updated version of award-winnig comic novel is skillfully dramatized and visualized. It’s based on the novel by Risto Isomäki, and it is charged with hard fact, spine-tingling action and a stark view of the possible fate of mankind.

Marko Hautala & Broci: Pale Toes

At the local inn, they meet a man who offers to take them to prehistoric underground caves that are off limits for regular tourists. He shows them his bare foot which has only one toe left. The rest, he says, are still somewhere in the caves.

Ilkka Heilä: B. Virtanen 23 – Työilmapiiritutkimuksen tulokset

Nykyisten ja entisten palkansaajien keskuudessa tunnetaan kolme todella pahaa asiaa: B. Virtanen ei ilmesty aamulla töihin, B. Virtanen ei jää illaksi ylitöihin ja pahimpana kaikista, uusi B. Virtanen ei ilmesty syksyn tullen. Ei huolta, mitään näistä ei tapahdu tänäkään vuonna.

Puoluekannasta riippumatta lienee pakko myöntää, että viime vuosina Suomen hallitusten toimet ovat onnistuneet työllistämään ainakin humoristeja – ja vieläpä tekemällä sen luvattoman helpoksi.

Ilkka Heilä ei ole poliittinen piirtäjä, mutta jälleen kerran hän onnistuu työelämän pahimpien naurettavuuksien kuvaamisella todistamaan, että pienen ihmisen puolella voi olla puhtain huumorin asein.

Kazuo Koike & Goseki Kojima: Path of the Assassin 1 – Serving in the Dark

Path of the Assassin, called Hanzo no Mon in Japan, is the story of Hattori Hanzo, the fabled master ninja whose duty was to protect Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Ieyasu was the shogun who would unite Japan into one great nation.
But before he could do that, he had to grow up and learn how to love the ladies!

As the secret caretaker of such an influential future leader, not only does Hanzo use vast and varied ninja talents, but in living closely with Ieyasu, he forms a close friendship with the young shogun.

Kazuo Koike & Goseki Kojima: Path of the Assassin 2 – Sand and Flower

It’s not easy being Hattori Hanzo.

If he’s not teaching the young and upcoming shogun how to love, then he’s either behind the scenes teaching Ieyasu how not to die in case of a momentary lapse of protection.
Or he might be in the shadows making sure Ieyasu’s leadership is effective by any means necessary.

If you thought you had a tough job, try taking a pudgy, protected youngster, and making him into the leader who would unite Japan under his singular rule.
In this quasi-historical tale from the masters of Japanese samurai culture, Path of the Assassin shows a side of feudal japan that entertains with action as well as political drama.

Kazuo Koike & Goseki Kojima: Path of the Assassin 3 – Comparison of a Man

Koike and Kojima’s story of the famed ninja, Hanzo Hattori and his trials and tribulations protecting the shogu-to-be, Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Each page builds upon the two warriors and the women they love.

Drafted by classic samurai manga creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima of Lone Wolf and Cub fame, Path of the Assassin is the story of a young shogun on his way to unite Japan, and the trusty ninja assigned to protect him.
Be it in crafty maneuverings of war, political push and pull, or bedroom adventures, young Hattori Hanzo will not be kept from his duties.

Kazuo Koike & Goseki Kojima: Path of the Assassin 5 – Battle of One Hundred and Eight Days

It’s a battle of ninja vs. ninja, with all the stops pulled out and every trick in the book.

Well, almost every trick.

Our protagonist/ninja, Hanzo’s young ninja wife, Tsukumo, must avenge her father’s death at the hands of another shadow warrior, but he’s as crafty as they come.
This mystical, imaginative faceoff consumes all 300-plus pages of this action-stuffed volume.

Jonathan Coulton & Matt Fraction: Solid State

From musician, singer-songwriter, and internet superstar JONATHAN COULTON comes the graphic novel accompaniment (in square-bound, 10″ x 10″ format) to his new concept album, SOLID STATE.

Two guys, connected by a name and hundreds of years, somehow stand at the end of man’s beginning, and the beginning of man’s end. But…it’s funny?

Also kind of a nightmare. But mostly funny?

A funny science FACTion nightmare about the end of everything, but how that’s all kind of okay.
Teaming up with MATT FRACTION, the writer of SEX CRIMINALS, CASANOVA, and ODY-C; and the award-winning Spanish artist of Universe! ALBERT MONTEYS, COULTON’s SOLID STATE is a tech mashup where 2001: A Space Odyssey meets Office Space and getting all we ever wanted might just be a terrible idea.

Charles Forsman: Celebrated Summer

This original graphic novella is a funny and moving story of escalating humor and tension between two disaffected teens, Mike and Wolf, who take a spontaneous summer road trip after dropping acid.

As the stark black and white of Forsman’s cartooning indicates, however, this is not a psychedelic, Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby kind of trip.

Instead of the escapism they crave from their fragile home lives, the LSD only heightens their sense of ennui, exacerbates their fears about the world they’re about to enter as adults, and creates doubts about everything they think they know.

Though not entirely what they bargained for, will Mike and Wolf look back on their adventure as part of the “celebrated summer” of their never-to-be recaptured youth, or a carelessly wasted part of the best years of their lives? Or both?

Muñoz & Sampayo: Billie Holiday

Born in Philadelphia in 1915, and dead too early in New York in 1959, Billie Holiday became a legendary jazz singer, even mythical.

With her voice even now managing to touch so many people, we follow a reporter on the trail of the artist on behalf of a New York daily.
Beyond the public scandals that marred the life of the star (alcohol, drugs, violence…), he seeks to restore the truth, revisiting the memory of Billie.
Through this investigation, Muñoz and Sampayo trace, through the undertones of racism, and in the wake of the blues, the slow drift of a singer who expressed the deepest emotions in jazz.

By internationally renowned Argentine artists, featuring Muñoz’ strikingly raw heavy blacks, this is not just a biography but a spell-binding art book tribute.

Mézières & Christin: Valerian – The Complete Collection 2

In this book you will find volumes 3 to 5: The Land Without Stars, Welcome to Alflolol and Birds of the Master – three stories that introduce the societal criticism aspect of the series.

Battle of the sexes, totalitarianism and extreme productivism are lambasted, but never at the expense of fantasy or of the action.

And as they travel from world to distant world, Laureline becomes a truly equal partner, far from the stereotypical female sidekick roles of the time.

Finally, the second part of the exclusive interview with the authors and director Luc Besson is followed by an in-depth portrait of Pierre Christin, the writer.

ENNAKKOTILAUKSET

Jill Thompson: Ihmenainen – Todellinen amatsoni (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. KIRJA ILMESTYY 14.8.2017.

Tämä ainutlaatuinen ja omaperäinen tulkinta Ihmenaisen alkuperästä esittelee uudenlaisen prinsessa Dianan.

Jill Thompsonin kirjoittamassa ja kuvittamassa tarinassa pilalle hemmoteltu nuori kuninkaallinen tekee kauhean teon, jonka hyvittääkseen hänen on pakko kasvaa sankarin mittoihin.
Palkitun tekijän maalattu taide herättää myyttien sankarittaret henkiin ainutlaatuisella herkkyydellä.

Harri Filppa: Vastarannan Siili piipertää (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 15.8.2017.

Ajatuksemme täyttyvät päivittäin monenlaisista kysymyksistä.

Myös Vastarannan Siili pohtii maailman suuria ja pieniä ihmeitä. Merkillisen piipertäjän etsiminen saattelee sankarimme puutarhan lumoista ystävän syntymäpäiville ja sieltä nolojen tilanteiden kautta saunan lämpöön. Elämä on yhtä piiperrystä, kuten tämä seikkailu osoittaa… Millainen piipertäjä sinä olet?

Harri Filpan Vastarannan siili piipertää on jatko-osa Vastarannan Siili unten mailla -sarjakuva-albumille. Filppa on kerännyt aineksia kirjan villiin, värikkääseen ja mukaansatempaavaan tarinaan Vastarannan siili kuuluu kaikille – levyn kappaleista. Kirjassa Vastarannan Siili piipertää kuitenkin omia polkujaan.

Susanna Luoto: Salaisuuksin suljettu – Kirjeiden Tom of Finland (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. KIRJA ILMESTYY 21.8.2017.

Touko Laaksosen (1920–1991) mittava kirjeenvaihto vetää vertoja Tom of Finlandin tuhansien piirrosten tuotannolle.

Toukon eli Tomin kirjeenvaihto kattaa vuodet 1940–1991. Näissä kirjeissä on äänessä veli, nuori sotilas, muusikko ja mainosmies mutta myös fetisisti, taiteilija, maailmanmatkaaja, ystävä, liikekumppani ja lopulta keuhkoahtaumasta kärsivä vanheneva mies.

Susanna Luoto (s. 1961) on taiteen maisteri ja toimittaja.
Hän on tehnyt yhteistyötä Tom of Finland Foundationin kanssa vuodesta 1990. Sysäyksen kirjalle antoi Luodon Postimuseolle vuonna 2014 kuratoima näyttely Tom of Finlandin kirjeenvaihdosta ja elämästä.

René Goscinny & Albert Uderzo: Asterix 20 – Asterix Korsikassa (kovak.) (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI ILMESTYY ELOKUUSSA 2017.

Asterix Korsikassa on järjestysnumeroltaan 20. Asterix-albumi ja sarjan myydyin yksittäinen osa.

Albumissa vieraileekin muikea katras aikaisemmista osista tuttu väkeä, ja Albert Uderzo ja René Goscinny pistävät parastaan eurooppalaisten heimojen hulvattomimpien erityispiirteiden kuvaajina.
Ja kuten aina, albumi tarjoilee runsaasti bongattavaa historian harrastajille.

Jana Vasiljević: Manet’s Diner (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI ILMESTYY 1.9.2017.

Puhetta, hälinää, kofeiinin siivittämää ainaista jaarittelua… Miten kukaan jaksaa kuunnella kaikkia noita ihmisiä päivästä toiseen?

Kulmakuppilan tarjoilijan on pakko. Paikka on Manet’s Diner, jossa kahvi on hyvää ja santsikuppi sisältyy hintaan. Tervetuloa.

Jana Vasiljević (s. 1990) on Belgian Gentissä asuva kuva- ja sarjakuvataiteilija. Hän tarinoi sodasta, rakkaudesta, jalkapallosta (josta ei tiedä mitään), tietokonepeleistä, 1990-luvun popkulttuurista, Talking Headsistä, ihmisluonnosta ja kyseenalaisista tieteellisistä teorioista. Vasiljević on sarjakuva-antologioistaan tunnetun Tieten Met Haar -kollektiivin perustajajäsen.

Keijo Synkkäniemi: Vitsauksia (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. LEHTI ILMESTYY 1.9.2017.

Vitsauksia on kokoelma Keijo Synkkäniemen tummia ja hirtehisiä sarjakuvia.

Sivun mittaisissa sarjoissaan hän tutustuttaa meidät leegioon kovaonnisia hahmoja.
Andrew Andrews meni kiellettyyn huoneeseen eikä koskaan palannut.
Walton Moorhouse sairastui kulkutautiin ja kuoli.
Henry Swartz sai raivokohtauksen ja sidottiin aloilleen.
Synkkäniemen maailmassa ainut varma asia on väistämätön loppu.

Keijo Synkkäniemi (s. 1935) laukaalaislähtöinen omakustannekirjailija ja kotiseutuhistorioitsija. Hän asuu ja työskentelee Rovaniemellä.

Sarjakuvan ovat julkaisseet yhteistyössä Dead Genesis ja Nälkämaan kirkkoapu ry. Dead Genesis on vuonna 2012 perustettu sarjakuvaan keskittynyt pienkustannepaja. Nälkämaan kirkkoapu on Ristijärvellä vuodesta 1951 toiminut herätysevankelinen avustus- ja kirkkoperinneyhdistys.

Apila Pepita Miettinen (toim.): Rikkinäisen mielen kuvat (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 1.9.2017. 

Rikkinäisen mielen kuvat antaa puheenvuoron mielenterveysongelmien kanssa eläville ihmisille.

Mielen sairauksiin liittyvät ennakkoluulot ja häpeä ajavat ongelmista kärsivät liian usein piiloon. Valmiiksi rikkinäisiltä ihmisiltä odotetaan suuria ponnistuksia, jotta he saisivat hankituksi tarvitsemaansa apua.

Nyt yli kaksikymmentä rohkeaa ja lahjakasta taiteilijaa tarttuu sarjakuvin, tekstein ja kuvituksin vaikeisiin aiheisiin. Joukkoon kuuluvat mm. Tiitu Takalo, Wolf Kankare, Miia Vistilä, Kimmo Lust, Siiri Viljakka, Emma Heinonen, Juliana Hyrri, Piri Huhtanen, Iita Järn, Taneli Kemppi ja Sade Lehti.

Aino Sutinen & Emmi Valve: Dead Genesis Split Series #4 (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. LEHTI ILMESTYY 1.9.2017.

Dead Genesis Split Series -kääntösarjakuvasarjan neljännen osan jakavat Aino Sutinen ja Emmi Valve.

Aino Sutinen (s. 1983) kertoo kolme tarinaa deittailusta, pääosassa Ms. Mandarin ja miehet. Takavuosien kansikomistus Fabio osoittautuu tyhjästä täydeksi. Kirjeenvaihtokumppanuuden lopussa ei kiitos seiso. Entä mikä mahtaa olla tavoitesuuntautuneella Chatbot-Petellä mielessä?

Emmi Valveen (s. 1984) tyttöjengi Girl Gang Bang Bang on joukko kaupungin laitamilla majailevia itsellisiä ihmisiä. Tarina alkaa, kun oveen koputetaan myrsky-yönä. Kynnykselle ilmestynyt odottamaton vieras sysää lähimmäiset radoiltaan – yhdet törmäyskurssille, toiset uuteen nousuun.

Suvi Ermilä: Hauho (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017.

Suvi Ermilä on Tampereella syntynyt ja kasvanut sarjakuvantekijä, joka opiskelee Aalto-yliopistossa visuaalista kulttuuria.

Hän vietti lapsuutensa kesät Hauhon mökillä.
Hauho on Ermilän ensimmäinen sarjakuvakirja. Se kuvaa järven rannalla vietettyä kesäistä viikonloppua ja kertoo ulkopuolisuuden ja läheisyyden kokemuksista, joita perheyhteisössä ei voi olla kohtaamatta.

Antti Ollikainen: Flu 3 – Viimeinen aivastus (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017.

Antti Ollikaisen nimetön ja peloton tutkimusmatkailija jatkaa Flu-trilogian viimeisessä osassa seikkailujaan, joita rytmittävät järisyttävät aivastukset.

Tällä kertaa sankari etsii aarretta ja välttelee viikatelintua pääasiassa maan- ja merenpinnan alapuolisissa maailmoissa. Kauniisti piirretty tekstitön sarjakuva sopii kaikille kekseliään ja kovavauhtisen kuvakerronnan ystäville ikään, sukupuoleen ja äidinkieleen katsomatta.

Jussi Waltameri: Samalla kadulla kirkko ja tehdas (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017.

Samalla kadulla kirkko ja tehdas on Jussi Waltameren maanläheinen ja korkealentoinen esikoisalbumi.

Iäkkään äidin vakava sairaus hallitsee kertojan nykyhetkeä, muistot ja mielikuvitus lennättävät pakomatkalle lapsuuden avaintapahtumiin.

Kirkko ja tehdas sijaitsevat Kotkassa. Niiden takaa näkyy meri. Ajatuksen notkeudella soljuva kerronta, maalauksellinen kuvakieli ja kaakkoissuomalainen puheenparsi tekevät lukukokemuksesta poikkeuksellisen voimakkaan.

Pallister: Sarjakuvausta! (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017. 

Kari Pällin nimimerkki Pallister on tuttu valokuvauksen harrastajille ja ammattilaisille huumorisarjoista, joita on nähty vuodesta 2012 lähtien alan kahdella suurimmalla foorumilla, Kamera-lehdessä ja Sulantoblogissa.

Yli 30 vuoden kokemus fotoalalta edistää ideoiden kehittelyä ja puujalkojen veistelyä. Kuvaaminen on lisääntynyt räjähdysmäisesti, mutta sitä käsittelevät sarjakuvat ovat harvinaisuuksia. Sarjakuvausta! on päänavaus, joka lyö fotofriikit pällikällä!

Pauli Kallio & Christer Nuutinen: Kramppeja & nyrjähdyksiä – Koko maailman paino (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017.

Pauli Kallion kirjoittama ja Christer Nuutisen piirtämä Kramppeja & nyrjähdyksiä on antanut uskollisille lukijoilleen ajattelemisen aiheitta jo runsaan neljännesvuosisadan verran.

Kuinka monta kertaa viikossa avioparin pitäisi harjoittaa seksiä? Täytyykö aina olla 100 % rehellinen? Mistä hameenhelmojen lyheneminen kertoo? Ja ennen kaikkea, kuinka kotikaupunki pelastetaan grynderien ylivallalta ja koko maailma höyrypäisten hallitsijoiden narsistisilta pakkomielteiltä?

Koko maailman paino on kuudes ja tähän asti tuhdein Suomen Kuvalehdessä ilmestyneiden jaksojen kokoelma.

Pauli Kallio & Kyky Ahonen: Maalaispunkin täydennetty päiväkirja (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI SAATAVILLA 4.9.2017. 

Käsikirjoittaja Pauli Kallio ja piirtäjä Kyky Ahonen elivät teini-ikänsä tähtihetkiä, kun punk mullisti suomalaisen rockin.

Maalaispunkin täydennetty päiväkirja kertoo, millaista oli olla Nivalan ensimmäinen punkki ja ystävystyä muiden kapinallisten kanssa.
Tekstiosuus käy läpi suomipunkin alkuaikoja sekä pureutuu Pihtiputaalla toimineen Ratsia-yhtyeen uraan ja tuotantoon.

Kirjan kolmas painos sisältää 44 uutta sivua: sarjakuvia, Pertti Pulkkasen yksityiskohtaisen Ratsia-historiikin ja reilusti ennen julkaisemattomia valokuvia bändin fanien arkistoista.

Jean-Yves Ferri & Didier Conrad: Asterix 37 (kovak.) (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

 

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI ILMESTYY 26.10.2017.

Uusi Asterix-seikkailu vie meidät tällä kertaa Italiaan, joka on paljon muutakin kuin vain Rooma.

Saatavana myös pehmeäkantisena.

Taiteiden yö 17.8.2017 Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla

Aikataulu (muutokset mahdollisia):

Klo 16 – 17 Max Sarin: Giant Days

John Allison & Max Sarin: Giant Days 3

Continuing their first semester at university, fast friends Susan, Esther, and Daisy want to find their footing in life.

The girls, along with their male hall-mates, Ed and McGraw find that college is more than academics and bad microwavable meals.

Add some pub hopping, hookups, breakups and political scandal this might just be the most eventful first semester ever.

Klo 17-18 Pertti Jarla: Jäätävän Speden sunnuntai

Pertti Jarla: Jäätävän speden sunnuntai

Mistä on humoristit tehty?

Sen paljastaa Fingerporin luoja tässä uudessa omaelämäkerrallisessa albumissaan, joka kokoaa yksiin kansiin Helsingin Sanomissa ilmestyneitä Jäätävä spede -sarjoja.

Tuskalla, hiellä ja itkulla syntyvät vitsit tässä Suomemme maassa yhä 100 vuoden jälkeenkin.

Klo 18 – 19 Juba: Viivi ja Wagner

Juba: Viivi ja Wagner 20 – On-Nöff-suhde

Jo 20. Viivi ja Wagner -albumi!

Suomen tunnetuin sanomalehtisarjakuva juhlii vuonna 2017 jo 20-vuotispäiväänsä.

Uusi albumi sisältää täyden setin uusia, aiemmin kokoamattomia strippejä.

.

Klo 19 – 20 Emmi Valve: Armo

Emmi Valve: Armo

Jo lapsena jokin kiskaisee Emmin toiseen ulottuvuuteen.

Siellä asioiden ja toisten ihmisten pimeät puolet ovat hänelle näkyviä. Ihmisten katseet ja kosketukset tekevät häneen reikiä, ja hän yrittää piilottaa kaikkialle tunkeutuvan mustan mönjän, joka karkaa ulos hänen sieraimistaan tai suustaan.

Emmin elämä on helvettiä. On ollut niin kauan kuin hän muistaa. Armo kertoo tästä elämästä, uskomattomista seikkailuista baarien, makuuhuoneiden, väkivallantekojen, harhojen ja mielisairaaloiden syövereissä.

Emmi Valveen omaelämäkerrallinen sarjakuvaromaani on suora, karu ja hurja ja höystetty isolla määrällä mustaa huumoria.

Klo 21 – 22 Kris Keränen: Ahistunu pupu

Kris Keränen: Ahistunu Pupu 2 – Elämä on mut siihen tottuu (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ALBUMI ILMESTYY 15.8.2017.

Ahistuneen Pupun paluu!

Tai no, ei Ahistunut Pupu ole mennyt tässä välillä mihinkään, koska ei tahdo eikä uskalla. Edes kotoa ulos. Ulkona voi joutua kohtaamaan tuntemattomia tyyppejä, ja päätyä heidän kanssaan tekemisiin, peräti sanomaan jotakin!

Kris Keräsen sarjakuvahahmo Ahistunu Pupu tuo lukijoilleen turvaa ja lohtua toimimalla äärimmäisenä esimerkkinä siitä, miten käy kun oma elämä menee täydelliseen umpisolmuun. Miten paljon onkaan maailmassa kaikkea mitä on pakko tehdä! Tai olisi, jos pystyisi.

Ahistuneella Pupulla on paljon kiitollisia seuraajia niin somessa kuin todellisenkin elämän puolella. Blogisarjakuvasta paperille loikannut Pupu todistaa, että jaettu ahdistus voi muuttua yhteiseksi iloksi!

Turun Sarjakuvakaupan heinäkuun 2017 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Mézières & Christin: Valerian – Väärennetty maailma (Uusi)

Uusintapainos vuonna 1988 ilmestyneestä Valerian-albumista, jossa sankari seikkailee keinotekoisesti luoduissa menneisyyden maailmoissa.

Yksi parhaista Valerianeista!

.

.

4. Mézières & Christin: Valerian – Surullinen planeetta (Uusi)

Surullinen planeetta kokoaa yhteen neljä aikaisemmin albumeissa julkaisematonta Avaruusagentti Valerian -tarinaa ja yhden kokonaan suomentamattoman tarinan.

Albumin yhteensä seitsemän tarinaa julkaistiin Ranskassa alun perin 1970-luvun taitteessa Super Pocket Pilote -taskukirjoissa.
Näissä avaruusagentti Valerianin uran alkuvaiheista kertovissa tarinoissa Christin ja Mézières kokeilevat juonikuvioita, luovat henkilöhahmoja ja leikittelevät aika-avaruuden paradokseilla.

3. Mézières & Christin: Valerian – Brooklynista kosmokseen (Uusi)

Pariisista Kassiopeiaan ­albumista alkanut seikkailu jatkuu.

Galaxityn avaruusagentit ovat saaneet selville, että oudot tapahtumat vuoden 1980 Ranskassa liittyvät neljään peruselementtiin: maahan, tuleen, veteen ja ilmaan. Samaan aikaan Zomukin planeetalla – avaruuden kaatopaikalla – neljälle elementille omistettu pyhättö on ryöstetty.

Seikkailu selityksen perässä vie Valerianin monen mutkan kautta Brooklyniin, kun taas Laureline jatkaa omaa salapoliisin työtään avaruudessa. Yhteys näiden kahden välillä tosin on epäkunnossa monessakin mielessä…

2. Mézières & Christin: Valerian – Pariisista Kassiopeiaan (Uusi)

Vuoden 1980 Ranskassa sattuu outoja asioita, jotka herättävät levottomuutta Galaxityssä.

Valerian on paikalla selvittämässä tapahtu­mia, mutta hänen ajatustyötään hankaloitta­vat paitsi selittämättömiltä vaikuttavat ilmiöt ja asiaan sekaantuneet uhkaavat tahot myös sinnikäs päänsärky.

Samaan aikaan Laureline matkustaa Kassiopeian tähdistöön johtolangan perässä. Vih­je osoittautuu hyödylliseksi, kun hän saa sel­ville asioita, joilla tuntuu olevan kummallisia yhtymäkohtia Ranskan tapahtumiin…

Tarina jatkuu albumissa Brooklynista Kos­mokseen.

1. Mézières & Christin: Valerian – Tuhannen planeetan valtakunta (Uusi)

Kaukaisessa galaksissa on suurenmoinen Syrte, Tuhannen planeetan valtakunnan keskus ja kukoistava kauppakaupunki, jossa myydään ihmeellisiä tuotteita kaikkialta aurinkokunnasta.

Syrtellä ei ole keksitty aikamatkustamisen taitoa, joten avaruusagentit Valerian ja Laureline ovat ensimmäiset, jotka ovat saaneet Maasta yhteyden tähän korkeaan kulttuuriin ja matkustavat tutkimaan sitä.

Ennen niin loistelias kaupunki on kuitenkin rappeutumassa, ja todellista valtaa näyttävät käyttävän metallinaamion taakse kätkeytyvät tietäjät, jotka sanovat olevansa ruumiin ja sielun tuntijoita. Keitä tietäjät oikeastaan ovat, ja onko Syrte uhka Galaxitylle?

Valerian­-tarinoiden piirtäjä Jean-Claude Mézières (s. 1938) ja käsikirjoittaja Pierre Christin (s. 1938) ovat lapsuudenystäviä. Heidän yli 40 vuoden ajan tekemänsä Avaruusagentti Valerian ­albumit ovat voittaneet lukuisia palkintoja ja vaikuttaneet paljon paitsi sarjakuviin myös scifi­ ja fantasiaelokuviin.

Heinäkuussa 2017 saa ensi-iltansa Luc Bessonin ohjaama Valerian-elokuva Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets, joka on saanut vaikutteita Tuhannen planeetan valtakunnan tarinasta. Tuhannen planeetan valtakunta on järjestyksessä kolmas Valerian-albumi: se julkaistiin Ranskassa vuonna 1971. Sen on sanottu vaikuttaneen muun muassa Tähtien sota -elokuvien kuvastoon.

Vuoden 2017 Eisner Awards-voittajia Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla

Tämän vuoden Eisner Awards-palkinnot on jälleen jaettu.

Kaikkien voittajien nimet löydätte täältä, mutta tässä muutama poiminta listalta:

Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples: Saga

Saga on tarina Alanasta ja Markosta, kahdesta aivan erilaisen rodun edustajasta, jotka rakastuvat sodan keskellä, saavat lapsen, ja joutuvan sen jälkeen pakenemaan henkensä kaupalla molempien kansojen vihaa.
Peräänsä he saavat niin kylmäverisiä palkkatappajia kuin TV-päisiä robottikuninkaallisia.

Saga kertoo eeppisen tieteisseikkailun kautta tarinan rakkaudesta, perheen perustamisesta, politiikasta sekä tietenkin kissoista, joille on turha yrittää valehdella.

The Complete Wimmen’s Comix

In the late 60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution.

In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen’s Comix.
Within two years the Wimmen’s Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America: Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty year run, the women of Wimmen’s tackled subjects the guys wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists.
Most issues of Wimmen’s Comix have been long out of print, so it s about time these pioneering cartoonists work received their due.
Presented as a gorgeous two-volume slipcased set, The Complete Wimmen’s Comix includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain’t Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published.
Edited with an introduction by Trina Robbins.

When Loki steps back into Thor’s life, will it ease her troubles or only add to her pain?
It’s time to find out whether the next chapter in the twisting tale of the Trickster will be one of good or evil! There’s no such question about Malekith, though, as he and his Dark Council continue to fan the flames of a looming War of Realms!

Gail Simone & Jon Davis-Hunt: Clean Room 2 – Exile

Astrid Mueller is a world-famous horror novelist, a publicly reviled huckster and the all-powerful leader of a secretive cult whose tentacles reach into every sphere of American life.

She’s also humanity’s last hope.

You see, her organization’s apocalyptic beliefs are neither fraud nor fiction. Ever since she was a child, Astrid has been able to see the extradimensional entities preying on our unsuspecting world, and she’s used every ounce of her fame and fortune to stop them.

But what if it’s not enough?

When a shocking attack takes the seemingly indestructible Astrid down, it’s up to reporter Chloe Pierce and Mueller’s inner circle to root out the conspirators who are plotting against her and the entire human race.

Because behind closed doors—and underneath the skin—unimaginable evil is preparing its ultimate assault, and not even Astrid’s inner sanctum, the Clean Room, can keep them out forever.

Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea.
As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna.
Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake — and her own.

Ryan North & Erica Henderson: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl 3 – Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now

New series, New Avenger!

With her unique combination of wit, empathy and squirrel powers, computer science student Doreen Green – aka the unbeatable Squirrel Girl – is all that stands between the Earth and total destruction.
Well, Doreen plus her friends Tippy-Toe (a squirrel) and Nancy (a regular human with no powers).
So, mainly Squirrel Girl.

Then what hope does the Earth have if she gets hurled back in time to the 1960s and erased from history? At least Nancy will never forget her friend, but what invincible armored Avenger can she call on to help, through the magic of social media?
Decades apart, can they avert doom, or will everything go wrong forever? Howard the Duck hopes not…he has an appointment for a crossover!
