Devin Faraci & Vic Malhotra: Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me

Celebrated crime novelist Jim Thompson’s sinewy, brutal, and beloved novel comes to life in this graphic noir-novel!

In THE KILLER INSIDE ME, Thompson went where few have dared, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the evil mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho. Thompson’s novel will forever be known as the masterwork of the greatest crime novelist of all time.

Lou Ford is the deputy sheriff of a small unsuspecting Texas town. The worst thing most people can say against him is that he’s a little slow and a little boring.
But most people don’t know about the sickness—the sickness that almost got Lou put away when he was younger—the psychosis that is about to surface again.

Introduction by Stephen King.

James Sturm: The Golem’s Mighty Swing

A new edition of the classic tale of a barnstorming Jewish baseball team during the great depression

By reuniting America’s greatest pastime with its hidden history, the graphic novel tells the story of the Stars of David, a barnstorming Jewish baseball team of the depression era.
Led by its manager and third baseman, the nomadic team travels from small town to small town providing the thrill of the sport while playing up their religious exoticism as a curio for people to gawk at, heckle, and taunt.

When the team’s fortunes fall, the players are presented a plan to get people in the stands. But by placing their fortunes in the hands of a promoter, the Stars of David find themselves fanning the flames of ethnic tensions.

Sturm’s nuanced composition is on full display as he deftly builds the climax of the game against the rising anti-semitic fervor of the crowd. Baseball, small towns, racial tensions, and the desperate grasp for the American Dream: The Golem’s Mighty Swing is a classic American novel.

Jilliam Tamaki: Boundless

The cartoonist of This One Summer and SuperMutant Magic Academy explores the virtual and IRL world of contemporary women via a lens both surreal and wry

Jenny becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself. Helen finds her clothes growing baggy, her shoes looser, and as she shrinks away to nothingness, the world around her recedes as well. The animals of the city briefly open their minds to us, and we see the world as they do. A mysterious music file surfaces on the internet and forms the basis of a utopian society–or is it a cult?

Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one’s culture, one’s relationship, oneself. This collection of short stories is a showcase for the masterful blend of emotion and humour of award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki

Suicide Squad Secret Files

Three of the most dangerous members of the DC Universe’s least predictable team share the spotlight in this killer collection, starring characters from the blockbuster movie!

KILLER CROC is the Suicide Squad’s biggest, baddest beast, which makes him the right monster for the job when an island full of terrifying creatures becomes a threat to the world at large. But when he’s confronted with the horrible truth of these mutant menaces, will humanity or monstrosities win in the end?

BOOMERANG is a hardcore mercenary who thinks his mission to take down a Central American dictator is just another job-but trouble has a way of returning to him like one of his trademark weapons. Alone behind enemy lines, can Boomerang make a comeback?

AMANDA WALLER may be a regular human, but she has perhaps the greatest ability of all: she understands how power works-and how to wield it. That’s how she’s kept the Squad under control and become one of the best deprogrammers of brainwashed villains. But when one of her subjects turns the tables on her, can she save the Squad from a killer who knows all their secrets?

Jason: Lost Cat

In this reprint of Jason’s first long-form graphic novel, a detective meets a woman who has a lost cat, and, in true noir fashion, nothing is as it seems.

Simon Hanselmann: One More Year

Simon Hanselmann’s previous two Megg & Mogg books — 2014’s Megahex and 2016’s Megg and Mogg in Amsterdam — have both been New York Times bestsellers, and One More Year continues to cement

Hanselmann as one of his generation’s defining cartoonists. Megg the witch, Mogg the cat, and their friends Owl and Werewolf Jones are imbued with far more pathos and depth than seems plausible given the stock comic premise — drugged-out, slacker roommates.
Depressing, hilarious, and exceedingly human — despite being about a witch, a cat, and an anthropomorphic owl — One More Year continues to give more substance to the characters and personalities of its protagonists in ways that never fail to surprise, delight, and horrify.

Lynda Barry: One Hundred Demons

Inspired by a sixteenth-century Zen monk’s painting of a hundred demons chasing each other across a long scroll, acclaimed cartoonist Lynda Barry confronts various demons from her life in seventeen full-color vignettes.

In Barry’s hand, demons are the life moments that haunt you, form you, and stay with you: your worst boyfriend; kickball games on a warm summer night; watching your baby brother dance; the smell of various houses in the neighborhood you grew up in; or the day you realize your childhood is long behind you and you are officially a teenager.

Jason: On the Camino

Internationally acclaimed cartoonist Jason’s first full-length graphic memoir is about his experiences walking a 500-mile pilgrimage for his 50th birthday.

Northwestern Spain, observed with the eye of an artist, chronicling both the good (people, conversations) and the bad (blisters, bedbugs) he encountered on his journey.
Full of quiet incidents, odd encounters, small triumphs, and the occasional setback, On the Camino is the first implicitly autobiographical long-form work by a master cartoonist.

Jeff Smith: Luupäät 1 – Kevättasaus

Serkukset Leppo, Auvo ja Tahvo Luupää karkotetaan kotoaan Luumäestä Tahvon hämärien liiketoimien takia. He löytävät tiensä ihmeellisten olentojen kansoittamaan syvään, metsäiseen laaksoon…

Luupäät on maailmanlaajuista mainetta niittänyt koko perheen sarjakuva, jossa satumainen fantasia ja piinaava jännitys yhdistyvät hykerryttävään huumoriin ja taidokkaaseen piirrosjälkeen.
Sarja on saanut 10 Eisner-palkintoa ja 11 Harvey-palkintoa, ja vuonna 2005 Time-lehti kohotti Luupäät kymmenen kaikkien aikojen tärkeimmän sarjakuvaromaanin joukkoon.

Värien ansiosta mestarien paletilla on tarjolla tavallista enemmän vivahteita ja kuvittajat käyttävät lisäarsenaalinsa Villin lännen upean luonnon ja sen sankareiden uljaaseen esillepanoon.

Mauro Bosellin ja Angelo Stanon tarina Painted Desert vie meidät Arizonan karun kauneuden keskelle, jossa roistojoukon aarrejahti värjää autiomaata viattomien verellä. Armottomien konnien kintereillä on Yön Kotkan ja Tiger Jackin muodostama vieläkin armottomampi parivaljakko.

Uhka Montanassa on Gianfranco Manfredin kirjoittama jännitysnäytelmä, jossa Texin vanha ystävä pyytää apua turkiskomppanian palkkaamaa murhanhimoisten asemiesten joukkoa vastaan.
Giulio De Vita ja Matteo Vattani vastaavat talvisen verioopperan kuvituksesta.

Humppa-Lähetys 1982-1992

Haluatko tietää mitä TODELLA tapahtui vuosina 1982-1992?

Maan johtava uutislehti Humppa-Lähetys kertoo kaiken sen, mistä valtamedia syystäkin vaikenee.
Tiesitkö mm. että Ahvenanmaalla käytiin veristä sisällissotaa, Suomen ilmatilassa havaittiin vieraan vallan sukellusvene, tai että raivohullu seebuhärkä riehui Torniossa?
Entä kertoivatko uutiset miten muurari söi betonimyllynsä tai että Matti & Teppo loikkasivat Neuvostoliittoon?

Näiden kansien sisään on koottu kaikki “oleellinen” materiaali Humppiksen ajat sitten loppuunmyydyistä numeroista 1-13, häpeämättömästi uudelleeneditoituna ja julkeasti muokattuna

– Kim Jong Il

“Joko sumppi kiehuu?”

Buster 2

Buster oli 70-luvun lopussa ja 80-luvun alussa jalkapalloa harrastaneelle nuorisolle sarjakuvalehdistä tärkein. Busterin sivuilla seikkailleista vihreän veran sankareista suosituimmiksi nousi kaksi hyvinkin erityislaatuista superfutaria…

SUPER-MAC. Ulko-Hebridien karuilta nummilta ponnistava järkälemäinen Mac Mahony on varsinainen muurinmurtaja kentällä ja sen ulkopuolella. Hyväsydäminen ja kuumapäinen jätti teutaroi tiensä kommelluksesta toiseen ja naurattaa isänsä tuittupäisellä taustatuella lukijan vatsalihakset hyytelöksi.

PULLA. Super-Maciin verrattuna päinvastaisella tavalla järkälemäinen Kevin “Pulla” Mouse yrittää rakentaa uraa sekä aivokirurgina että jalkapalloilijana.
Teräville hoksottimille löytyy jalkapalloilun ihmeellisessä maailmassa runsaasti käyttöä lääkintätaidoisat puhumattakaan. Onhan Pullankin pelityyli ajoittain hyvinkin fyysinen…

Alex Alice: Siegfried 1

Siegfried on kolmiosainen sarja, joka on saanut innoituksensa Richard Wagnerin oopperasta Nibelungin sormus.

Tarina perustuu useisiin eri myytteihin ja jumaltaruihin, mm. skandinaaviseen Eddaan.
Tuloksena on kiehtova ja eeppinen sarjakuva jumalista, jättiläisistä ja ihmisistä.

Tarinan pääosasssa on nuori orpo Siegfried, joka on syntynyt kuolevaisen miehen ja valkyyrian rakkaudesta mutta kasvanut kääpiöiden ja susien parissa pimeässä metsässä.
Hänen sijaisvanhempansa haluaisivat elää rauhassa, mutta Siegfried janoaa tietoa oikeista vanhemmistaan ja itsensä kaltaisista.
Hän ei kuitenkaan tiedä, että ylijumala Odinilla on suunnitelmia hänen varalleen. Odin haluaa Siegfriedin taistelevan Reininkullan vartijaa, Fafnir-lohikäärmettä vastaan!

Sarjan toinen osa julkaistaan loppuvuodesta 2017 ja kolmas osa keväällä 2018.

Tome & Janry: Pikku Piko 15 – Mitä ihmisetkin sanovat!

Pitkän tauon jälkeen ilmoitamme ilouutisen!

Pikku Piko kavereineen tekee paluun sarjan 15. albumilla “Mitä ihmisetkin sanovat!”

Pikkuisen tuhma ja suuresti hauska Pikku Piko on runsaasti palkittujen tekijöiden, Tomen ja Janryn, näkemys ison seikkailija-Pikon lapsuudesta.
Supersuosittu sarja täyttää jo 25 vuotta, mutta Pikku Piko ei ole yhtään sen aikuisempi kuin tarinansa alussa. Kunnes! Identiteettikriisi iskee kesken normipäivän puuhastelujen, uimahallissa pelleilyn ja uimapukuisten tyttöjen tirkistelyn. Pikku Piko alkaa tuntea itsensä vanhaksi, ja pyytää nuorennuseliksiiriä ystävältään Mamadoulta. Mutta annostus menee pieleen ja Pikku Piko huomaakin äkkiä muuttuneensa …aikuiseksi.
Isona oleminen ei ole kovin hauskaa. Pitäisi tehdä töitä ja huolehtia itsestään, kaikenlaista mistä Pikku Piko ei yhtään tykkää. Ennen muuta lapsellista hulluttelua on vielä runsaasti tekemättä, joten on löydettävä ratkaisu palautua takaisin kahdeksan ja puolivuotiaaksi ja pysyä siinä iässä vielä hyvin pitkään.

Riad Sattouf: Tulevaisuuden arabi 3 – Lapsuus Lähi-idässä (1985-1987)

Ilmiömäiseen suosioon Ranskassa nousseen omaelämäkerrallisen Tulevaisuuden arabi -sarjan kolmannessa osassa nuoren Riadin ranskalainen äiti on saanut tarpeekseen elämästä alkeellisessa kyläpahasessa Syyriassa.

Tulevaisuuden arabi 3 kertoo Riad Sattoufin nuoruudesta 6–9-vuotiaana, joka alkaa vähitellen ymmärtää, millaisessa yhteiskunnassa hän varttuu 1980-luvun Syyriassa.
Voiko Tirma’lassa viettää joulua? Millaisia videoita myydään Homsissa pikkupojille? Oliko Conan Barbaari ympärileikattu? Entä kohdellaanko eläimiä paremmin Bretagnessa kuin syyrialaiskylässä? Ja tuleeko Riadin isästä vielä jonain päivänä suurmies Hafez al-Assadin diktatuurissa?

”Tekijän suurin saavutus on asettuminen omiin lapsuuden saappaisiinsa. Hän välttää kiusauksen jälkiviisauteen, ei selittele ja taustoittaa vain välttämättömimmän”, kirjoitti Harri Römpötti Tulevaisuuden arabi 2:sta Helsingin Sanomissa.

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?

Bryan Hitch & Tony S. Daniel: Justice League 1 – The Extinction Machines

Part of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!

Superman has fallen.
The Man of Steel died protecting his adopted home, leaving his allies in the Justice League to fight on without him-and leaving the older, wiser Superman of a vanished universe to pick up the torch.

But to Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the League, this new “Superman” is a stranger.
And just like Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, the rookie Green Lanterns left by Hal Jordan to guard the globe in his absence, the replacement Superman has a lot to prove.

He’d better do it quickly. Because a godlike threat unlike any the League has ever fought is coming. Vast engines of destruction are about to be unleashed, remaking the planet’s surface and forging its people into living weapons.

They are the extinction machines. And it will take every member of the Justice League to shut them down…

Tim Seeley & Mike Norton: Revival 8 – Stay Just a Little Bit Longer

The final collection in the acclaimed REVIVAL series. The existence of the Revivers is killing the world, and an unlikely alliance of Dana, Em, and Em’s murderer must travel across a community in the midst of civil war to stop it.

Noah Van Sciver: Fante Bukowski Two

The hilarious struggle continues one year after the first book as we catch up with Fante Bukowski attempting to establish himself in a new city’s literary scene, self-publishing his first zine, and coming to terms with his feelings for an old friend.

Noah Van Sciver’s newest graphic novella continues to plumb the depths of the life of the self-styled, aspiring young writer, Fante Bukowski, as he delusively bumbles his way to literary fame and fortune, one drink at a time.
Living in a cheap hotel, consorting with the debased and downtrodden, searching for that golden idea that will rocket him to the success he yearns for as the great American novelist, and to get respect from his father once and for all.
But, there’s just one problem: Fante Bukowski still has no talent for writing.

This latest book from emerging talent Van Sciver is another unique character study that mines the author’s interest in pathos and the human condition. 2015’s Fante Bukowski garnered Van Sciver a 2016 Eisner nomination for “Best Writer/Artist,” one of the major awards in the comics industry.

Yeon-Sik Hong: Uncomfortably Happily

When the gentler pace and stillness of the countryside replace the roar of the city, but your editor keeps calling.

With gorgeously detailed yet minimal art, cartoonist Yeon-Sik Hong explores his move with his wife to a small house atop a rural mountain, replacing the high-rent hubbub of Seoul with the quiet murmur of the country.

With their dog, cats, and chickens by their side, the simple life and isolation they so desperately craved proves to present new anxieties. Hong paints a beautiful portrait of the Korean countryside, changing seasons, and the universal relationships humans have with each other as well as nature, both of which are sometimes frustrating but always rewarding.

Uncomfortably Happily is translated by American cartoonist Hellen Jo from the acclaimed Manhwa Today award-winning Korean edition.

With so much at stake, Batman and the police department have their hands full maintaining the newly restored peace.

Of course, no sooner does he set foot upon his native land than he stumbles into a small-time necromancy-and-murder ring centered on his own sister’s apartment building.

More worrying than this sordid little power trip is the disappearance of his niece, Gemma, who’s turning out to be a bit too much like her uncle for anybody’s good.
In her eagerness to learn the family trade, Gemma has gone to London and fallen in with a bad crowd, and pulling her out means that Constantine will have to join the search for a distinctly nasty magical artifact—one that shouldn’t fall into anyone’s hands, least of all those of the man determined to find it.

Vuoden 2017 Eisner Awards-ehdokkaita Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla

Vuoden 2017 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award-palkintoehdokkaat on julkistettu.

Koko listan löydätte täältä, mutta tässä poimintoja listalta:

Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips: Kill or Be Killed 1

The darkly twisted story of a young man forced to kill bad people, and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly begins to ruin his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones.

Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is unlike anything this award-winning team has done before.

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.

Cathy Malkasian: Eartha

Eartha is Cathy Malkasian’s fourth graphic novel — a metaphorical fable that resonates with contemporary themes.

For a thousand years the unfinished dreams from the City Across the Sea came to Echo Fjord to live out their lives.
Sex fantasies, murder plots, wishful thinking, and all manner of secrets once found sanctuary in Echo Fjord. Emerging from the soil, they took bodily form and wandered the land, gently guided by the fjord folk who treasured their brief and wondrous lives.
But recently, city dreams have stopped coming to Echo Fjord, and without their ethereal tourists the fjord folk suddenly feel lost. Has their ancient way of life ended for good? Has something happened to the city? Are all the dreamers gone? One of Echo Fjord’s inhabitants wants answers: The story’s eponymous protagonist Eartha wants to visit the City Across the Sea, but how will she get to a place no one’s gone to for a thousand years? The city isn’t on any map, or in anyone’s memory. Without thought or hesitation she ventures into the limitless waters, hoping to find the City and solve the mystery.
Cathy Malkasian’s Eartha is an expansive tale of pastoral life, city corruption, greed, and addictions, and reverberates with questions plaguing us today, such as the alienating effects of hyper-connectivity and the self-destructive obsession with novelty.

Mummoille ja äideille jotka eivät pidä suorista linjoista.

Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Gaydos: Jessica Jones – Alias 1

Meet Jessica Jones. Once upon a time, she was a costumed super hero…but not a very good one.

Her powers were unremarkable compared to the amazing abilities of the costumed icons that populate the Marvel Universe.
In a city of Marvels, Jessica Jones never found her niche.

Now a chain-smoking, self-destructive alcoholic with a mean inferiority complex, Jones is the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations – a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases. When she uncovers the potentially explosive secret of one hero’s true identity, Jessica’s life immediately becomes expendable. But her wit, charm and intelligence just may help her survive through another day.

Supersankareillakaan ei ole helppoa, joillain on jopa vaikeampaa kuin normaaleilla ihmisillä.

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.

Äideille ja mummoille jotka eivät ota pas–haa keneltäkään, uskaltavat rakastaa vaikeuksista huolimatta ja ovat valmiita äärimmäisiin tekoihin lapsensa puolesta.

Wonder Woman by George Pérez

Once upon a time, the world’s greatest heroine was reimagined by a comic book legend.

More than forty years after debuting in ALL STAR COMICS #8, the Wonder Woman was reshaped by the legendary George Pérez and returned to the public eye in 1986.
She was met with such acclaim that Pérez’s original commitment of six months was extended, and extended, until almost five years had passed.

In collaboration with co-writer Len Wein and inker Bruce Patterson, Pérez spearheaded Wonder Woman’s adventures for years, leading her to an unprecedented level of success.

Now these groundbreaking tales are available in the first of a series of trade paperbacks, collecting WONDER WOMAN #1-14 with bonus material including a Who’s Who of Wonder Woman’s world and an art gallery.

Kaikki äidit ja mummot ovat ihmenaisia.

Mary M. Talbot & Bryan: Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes

Part personal history, part biography, Dotter of Her Father”s Eyes contrasts two coming-of-age narratives: that of Lucia, the daughter of James Joyce, and that of author Mary Talbot, daughter of the eminent Joycean scholar James S. Atherton.

Social expectations and gender politics, thwarted ambitions and personal tragedy are played out against two contrasting historical backgrounds, poignantly evoked by the atmospheric visual storytelling of award-winning graphic-novel pioneer Bryan Talbot.
Produced through an intense collaboration seldom seen between writers and artists, Dotter of Her Father”s Eyes is smart, funny, and sad – an essential addition to the evolving genre of graphic memoir.

Todenmukaisista ihmiskohtaloista pitäville äideille ja mummoille.

Hanneriina Moisseinen & Markku Nieminen: Sen synty

Sen synty ja muita Vienan Karjalan hävyttömiä ja hulvattomia starinoita.

Kirja koostuu kolmesta osasta: alkuperäisistä Markku Niemisen Vienasta keräämistä starinoista (CD), hänen niistä kirjallisiksi muokkaamistaan versioista ja Hanneriina Moisseisen riemukkaista sarjakuvasovituksista.

Mukana CD-levy.

Perisuomalaisen tuhmista jutuista tykkääville äideille ja mummoille.

Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti: Harley Quinn 1 – Die Laughing

Harley Quinn pyrkii muuttamaan elämänsä suuntaa tekemällä minkä hän osaa parhaiten: toimimalla psykiatrina ja vuokraemäntänä, joka huolehtii kaikista, ja varsinkin eläimistä..

Tämä ei kuitenkaan ole niin helppoa kuin päässä ääneen luettuna kuulostaa.

Ennen kuin hän ehtii sanoakaan “epätasapainoisten, mutta hyvien ihmisten auttaminen”, Coney Islandille iskee zombie-epidemia!

Mummoille ja äideille jotka eivät ota elämää niin vakavasti.

Amanda Vähämäki: Äitienpäivä

HUOMAUTUS: tämä ei ole kiva kirja siitä kuinka herätät äitisi kolistelemalla keittiössä, rymistelemällä makuuhuoneeseen ja kaatamalla kakkukahvit vuoteeseen.

Tämä on albumimittainen novelli on tarina kahdesta ystävyksestä ja rikostoverista, jotka pakenevat ahtaaksi käynyttä lapsuutta luontoon, matkaten halki ajan.

Eli hyvä sarjakuva, kannattaa lukea, mutta älä anna nimen hämätä näin juhlapäivän kynnyksellä.

Hanneriina Moisseinen: Kannas

Hanneriina Moisseisen (s.1978) sarjakuvaromaani Kannas kuvaa poikkeuksellista ajanjaksoa poikkeuksellisista näkökulmista. Karjalan kannakselle vuoden 1944 kesään sijoittuva teos pohjautuu osittain arkistolähteisiin ja siinä sota-ajan arkistovalokuvat nivoutuvat osaksi sarjakuvan kuvakerrontaa.

Teoksen keskeisiin teemoihin kuuluu sotilaana epäonnistuneen miehen kokemus sodasta, sekä sotakirjallisuudessa näihin päiviin asti vältelty aihe, sotilaiden psyykkiset ongelmat ja niihin liittyvä rintamakarkuruus.
Sotasarjakuvien ja populaarikulttuurin kuvastolle sekä viralliselle historiankirjoitukselle tyypillisten teemojen eli taistelemisen, sankaruuden, miehisen sisun ja kärsimyksen sijaan Moisseinen tarkastelee kirjassaan ihmisten ja eläinten keskinäistä huolenpitoa ja selviytymistä sodan jaloissa.

Toinen kirjan kahdesta päähenkilöistä on nuori karjakko, Maria Shemeikka, joka lehmineen odottaa lähtökäskyä muutoin hylätyssä kylässä. Yksi lehmistä on poikimaisillaan ja pommit räjähtelevät ympärillä. Palavien lähikylien valaistessa yötaivaan paikalle harhailee sodassa järkensä menettänyt rintamakarkuri Auvo Oksala, ainoana yksiköstään tykistökeskityksestä henkiin jäänyt karjalaisnuorukainen, joka ei enää tiedä onko elävä vaiko kuollut.

Includes subtitles in English

Mummolle. Ja miksei äidillekin.

Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang: Paper Girls 1

In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time.

Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.

.

Nostalgisista seikkailuista ja kasarimeiningistä tykkääville äideille ja mummoille.

Kate Beaton: Step Aside, Pops – A Hark! A Vagrant Collection

Ida B. Wells, the Black Prince, and Benito Juarez burst off the pages of “Step Aside, Pops: A Hark! A Vagrant Collection,” armed with modern-sounding quips and amusingly on-point repartee.””

Kate Beaton’s second D+Q book brings her hysterically funny gaze to bear on these and even more historical, literary, and contemporary figures.
Irreverently funny and carefully researched, no target is safe from Beaton’s incisive wit in these satirical strips.

Älykkään huumorin ystäville. Do-doi!

Marjane Satrapi: Embroideries

Tämä kirja kertoo iranilaisten naisten seksi-elämästä.

Tarinoissa esiintyvät Satrapin tiukkapuheinen isoäiti, vakaa äiti, mahtailevan ja omituinen täti, sekä heidän naapurinsa ja ystävänsä.

He kaikki kertovat teen äärellä salaisuuksistaan, katumuksistaan ja usein hurjan törkeitä, kuten miten huijata toinen neitsyys, kuinka paeta järjestetystä avioliitosta ja millaisia iloja on olla jonkun salainen rakastajatar.

Koska äideillä ja mummoilla oli/on elämä lasten ja perheenkin ulkopuolella.

Tervetuloa seuraamaan saippusarjaa josta ei puutu rakkautta ja/tai raketteja!

Toisessa tarinassa Tonta suostutellaan liittymään uimakerhoon, mutta jostain syystä uimavalmentaja tuntuu oudon tutulta. Ja kaiken aikaa taustalla muhii jotain kauheaa….

Äideille ja mummoille jotka eivät saa tarpeeksi päivittäin Emmerdalea, Salattuja elämiä sekä Kauniita ja Rohkeita.
Muista myös muut Love and Rockets-sarjakuvamme!

Maria Syvälä & Hanna Brusi: Kielteinen kotiäiti

Arkirealistinen, rento ja anarkistinenkin sarjakuvauutuus keski-ikäisen naisen elämästä, jota sävyttää humoristinen perusnegatiivisuus elämän realiteettien edessä.

Kielteinen kotiäiti on sarjakuva tamperelaisesta Kuittisen perheestä, johon Marppa-äidin (35 v) lisäksi kuuluvat ikuisen kotiremontin tekijä isä Jampe (39 v), lapset Toivo (7 v) ja Rauha (5 v) ja rottweiler Urho.

…siinäpä ne perustelut oikeastaan tulivatkin.

Muista myös sarjan muut osat Baby Blues: Herkkuperhe ja Baby Blues: Pieni yösyöttö.

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.

Naisilta naisille.

Onko Maisalle ja Kaarinalle tullut eteen viimeinen tikki?

Anna-lehdestä tuttu huumorisarjakuva kertoo naisen arjesta oivaltavasti ja mukaansa tempaavasti.

Jules Feiffer: Kill My Mother

Tarina alkaa kun kohtaamme Annie Hanniganin, villin teini-ikäisen tanssimassa jitterbugia 1930-luvulla.

Siitä lähtee liikkeelle tapahtumasarja, joka on täynnä ruumiita, salaisuuksia, kohtalokkaita naisia sekä elämäänsä kyllästyneen yksityisetsivän.

Tämä on “comic noir” parhaimmillaan; sarjakuva joka muistuttaa elokuvista joita ei enää tehdä..

Äideille ja mummoille jotka tykkäävät dekkareista (ei äiti, siinä ei ole piiloviestiä).

Émile Bravo: Kaunotar ja kääpiökarhut

Tarvitseeko jokainen prinsessa oikeastaan prinssin?

Tätä mieltä on ainakin yksi kääpiökarhu joka lähtee etsimään sulhoa prinsessalle, mutta miten siinä lopulta käykään? Mukana seikkailemassa muun muuassa Lumikki, Tuhkimo sekä kaunotar ja hirviö.

Supersankareista tykkääville äideille ja mummoille.

Gina Wynbrandt: Someone Please Have Sex with Me

Someone Please Have Sex With Me is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration from our young heroine and author.

From failed erotic photoshoots and late-onset teen popstar obsessions to fairy Kardashians and Pokémon-inspired future-sex, Wynbrandt isn’t one to hold back.

SPHSWM finds its footing at the surreal and hilarious juncture between autobiography and fantasy.

Heille jotka pitävät anarkistisesta myötähäpeää aiheuttavasta huumorista.

Batwoman 1: Hydrology

Kate Kane on Batwoman!

Elämä ei ole koskaan ole ollut hänelle helppoa, mutta kun Kanesta tuli Batwoman, se vaikeutui entisestään.

Kuka sieppaa lapsia ja mitä tarkoitusta varten? Miksi hallituksen salainen toimisto alkaa osoittaa kiinnostusta häneen? Eikä rauhaa ole edes siviilielämässä, kun hänen isästään paljastuu ikäviä salaisuuksia….

Molemmat ylläolevat sopivat äideille ja mummoille, jotka pitävät supersankareista.

Lynda Barry: The Greatest of Marlys

Welcome to the world of Marlys and Maybonne.

Eight-year-old Marlys Mullen is Lynda Barry’s most famous character from her long-running and landmark comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, and for good reason!

Given her very own collection of strips, Marlys shines in all her freckled and pig-tailed groovy glory. The trailer park where she and her family live is the grand stage for her dramas big and small. Joining Marlys are her teenaged sister Maybonne, her younger brother Freddie, their mother, and an offbeat array of family members, neighbors, and classmates.

Marlys’s enthusiasm for life knows no bounds. Her childhood is one where the neighborhood kids stay out all night playing kickball; the desire to be popular is unending; bullies are unrepentant; and parents make few appearances. “The Greatest Of Marlys” spotlights Barry’s masterful skill of chronicling childhood through adolescence in all of its wonder, awkwardness, humor, and pain.

Elämä on hauskaa, surullista, omituista, kivuliasta ja läpikäytävää riittää. Kysy vaikka mummoltasi tai äidiltäsi.

Anni Nykänen: Mummo

Äitienpäivänä voi tulee muistaa myös mummoja.

Tämä sarjakuva muistuttaa mummoja sekä heidän jälkeläisiään että elämä ei pääty mummoksi tullessa, vaan korkeintaan muuttuu mielenkiintoisemmaksi.

Vihje: lapsenlapsen antaessa tämän sarjakuvan lahjaksi lapsi voi antaa Mummo 2-albumin.

Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti: Starfire 1 – Welcome Home

Starfire ei ole täältä kotoisin. Saatoitte huomata sen siitä että hänen ihonsa on oranssi.

Mutta onneksi on olemassa yksi paikka maailmassa missä oranssi väri on vain yksi tekorusketuksen muoto: Florida.

Tämä ei kuitenkaan tarkoita että Prinsessa Koriand’r Tamaran-planeetalta sulautuisi joukkoon. Ensinnäkin hän on supersankari, joka on luvannut puolustaa heikkoja sekä avuttomia ja toisekseen mikä on tämä “ananas”, joka on niin herkullinen Onko maapallolla jotain muutakin sen kaltaista? Ja mitä tarkoittaa “raha”?

Heille, jotka tuntevat olonsa välillä vähän ulkopuolisiksi.

Raina Telgemeier: Hymy

Raina on ihan tavallinen kuudesluokkalainen tyttö – ainakin siihen päivään saakka, jolloin hän kaatuu ja lyö hampaansa katukivetykseen.

Tuosta päivästä alkaa monivaiheinen eikä ihan tuskaton hammastoimenpiteiden sarja, jossa porataan, oiotaan, kiskotaan ja väännetään, asennetaan niskaveto ja sovitetaan tekohampaita.

Hammaslääkärin tuolissa koetun draaman lisäksi arkeen hiipii poikaystävähuolia, mutkikkaita ystävyyssuhteita sekä yksi maanjäristys.
Raina oppii tärkeitä asioita rohkeudesta, ystävyydestä ja omasta itsestään. Vaikeudet voitetaan lempeällä huumorilla ja leveällä hymyllä!

Koska äidit ja mummot muistavat yhä millaista oli olla teini.

Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti: Harley Quinn and Power Girl

Toinen on supersankari, jonka kyvyt ovat verrannollisia Teräsmieheen. Power Girl!

Toinen on…no hän on mukana. Harley Quinn!

Yhdessä he joutuvat selviytymään oudossa ulottuvuudessa, jossa heitä jahtaa lemmennälkäinen sotaherra Vartox!

He tulevat uhraamaan kaiken paitsi itsekunnioituksensa selviytyäkseen!

Vitsi vitsi! Se oli ensimmäinen asia joka lensi pihalle!

Kaikille jotka tykkäävät kunnon parikomedista tyttöjen kesken!

Kurtis J. Wiebe & Roc Upchurch: Rat Queens 1 – Sass and Sorcery

Rottakuningattaret? No mutta hehän ovat ryhmä viinaa kittavia, kuolemaa kaikille luojanluomille jakavia naisia…kunhan vaan (sopivasta) hinnasta sovitaan.

Mustaa tummempaa komediaa, naisenergiaa ja magiaa! Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage! Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter! Dee the Atheist Human Cleric! Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief!

Jos tarvitset jonkun hoitamaan sen ikävän lohikäärme-ongelman kellaristasi…ota heihin yhteys!

Mummoille ja äideille jotka eivät ota elämää niin vakavasti – osa 2.

Raina Telgemeier: Siskot

Rainan perhe lähtee automatkalle. Matka on pitkä – viikko San Franciscosta Coloradoon ja viikko takaisin.

Raina on varustautunut korvalappustereoin, mutta maailmassa ei yksinkertaisesti ole tarpeeksi paristoja takapenkin rauhaa säilyttämään.
Pikkusisko Amara tietää, miten Rainan saa suuttumaan. Tarinassa piipahdetaan välillä Rainan muistoissa. Sisaruudessa on ollut niin huippuihania kuin huippukarmeitakin hetkiä.
Herää myös kysymyksiä: miksi isä ei tullut mukaan automatkalle? Miksei Raina halua istua etupenkillä? Ja, mikä tärkeintä, osaavatko Raina ja Amara koskaan olla sovussa?

Sisaruksilla ei aina ole helppoa, kuten mummosi ja äitisi voivat kertoa…
Muista myös loput Raina Telegemeierin tuotannosta!

Alison Bechdel: Äideistä parhain

Kaikki tarinat äideistä eivät ole kivoja tai edes mukavia.

“Äideistä parhain” on jatkumoa Hautuukoti-sarjakuvalle; siinä keskityttiin enemmän Bechdelin isään, kun taas tässä huomio on äidissä.

Hän oli lapsilleen etäinen, halauksissa kitsas äiti: kyltymättömästi kirjoja ahmiva ja musiikkia rakastava harrastajanäyttelijä, joka joutui vaihtamaan taiteelliset intohimonsa perheenäidin velvollisuuksiin ja onnellisen avioliiton kaappihomoon aviomieheen. Sarjakuvaa tehdessään aikuinen Alison pohtii omia rakkauksiaan ja yrittää ymmärtää äitinsä ratkaisuja. Hän kuvaa äidin ja tyttären kipeää suhdetta kyyneliin saakka liikuttavasti ja samaan aikaan nostattavan hilpeästi.

Also available in English/Saatavana myös englanniksi: Are you my mother?

Ed Brubaker & Steve Epting: Velvet 1 – Before the Living End

Maailman paras salainen agentti on kuollut, tapettu.

Epäilty on viraston johtajan henkilökohtainen sihteeri Velvet Templeton.

Mitä kukaan ei tiedä on hänen menneisyyteensä piilotettu salaisuus, sillä hän maailman paras naispuolinen agentti!

Suositellaan kaikille Fatale-sarjakuvan ystäville.

Miten äitisi oppi käsittelemään miehiä sekä veistä niin hyvin? Tämä muistoksi menneistä.

Julie Doucet: My New York Diary

THE CLASSIC GRAPHIC NOVEL, BACK IN PRINT

Back in print is the classic graphic novel by the acclaimed (though no longer working in comics) iconic artist Julie Doucet. In My New York Diary – one of the first contemporary graphic novels – Doucet abruptly packs her bags and moves to New York.

Trouble follows her in the form of a jealous boyfriend, insecurity about her talent, her worsening epilepsy, and a tendency to self-medicate with booze and drugs.

Karuista, koreilemattomista ja tosipohjaisista elämäntarinoista pitäville.

Bill Willingham: Fairest 2 – The Hidden Kingdom

Fables-sarjakuvan luojan Bill Willinghamin uudessa sarjassa pääsosissa ovat naispuoliset satuhahmot, Tuhkimo, Lumikko, Lumikuningatar ja monet muut.

Tämän albumin tarinoissa Peto metsästää Kaunotarta, mutta mikä johti tähän tilanteeseen? Lisäksi pääsemme Rapunzelin seikkailun matkaan, kun hän kuulee totuuden kauan kadoksissa olleista lapsistaan. Miten hän selviää todellisessa maailmassa, kun hänen tukkansa ei lakkaa kasvamasta?.

Totuus saduista äideille ja mummoille: miehet vikisivät, naiset veivät.

Vanessa Davis: Make Me a Woman

Make Me a Woman offers charming vignettes about being young, Jewish, and single.

It’s easy to understand why Vanessa Davis has taken the comics industry by storm and is poised to do the same with the world at large her comics are pure chutzpah, gorgeously illustrated in watercolors. No story is too painful to tell like how much she enjoyed fat camp. Nor too off-limits like her critique of R. Crumb. Nor too personal like her stories of growing up Jewish in Florida. Using her sweet but biting wit, Davis effortlessly carves out a wholly original and refreshing niche in two well-worn territories: autobio comics and the Jewish identity.

Davis draws strips from her daily diary, centering on her youth, mother, relationships with men, and eventually her longtime boyfriend. Her intimacy, self-deprecation, and candor have deservedly earned her many accolades and awards. Her deft comedic touch, lush color, and immediacy will set Davis apart not only as one of the premier cartoonists, but as one of the leading humorists for her generation, too.

Vertaistukea kaikille äideille ja mummoille huumorin varjolla.

Alison Bechdel: Lepakkoelämää II

Pitääkö perheen koostua aina isästä, äidistä ja lapsesta?

Mitä jos se onkin äiti, äiti ja lapsi tai isä, isä ja lapsi?

Bechdel kuvaa humoristisesti lesboäitejä sekä homoisiä ja heidän perhe-elämäänsä.

Vaihtoehtoinen äitienpäivälahja vaihtoehtoiselle äidille. Ja jos hänellä on jo tämä, vaihtoehtoisena lahjaideana suosittelemme Lepakkoelämää III-kokoelmaa.

Sylvie Rancourt: Melody – Story of a Nude Dancer

In 1980, Sylvie Rancourt and her boyfriend moved to Montreal from rural Northern Quebec.

With limited formal education or training, they had a hard time finding employment, so Rancourt began dancing in strip clubs.
These experiences formed the backbone of the first Canadian autobiographical comic book, “Melody,” which Rancourt wrote, drew, and distributed, starting in 1985.
Later, she collaborated with the artist Jacques Boivin, who translated and drew a new series of “Melody” comics for the American market-the comics were an instant cult classic.

Toisinaan naisen on tehtävä mitä naisen on tehtävä.

Peter O’Donnell: Modesty Blaise – Hidas kuolema

Blues-miehet pelkäävät ilkeää vaimoaan ja julmaa pomomiestä.

Mutta kaikki miehet kunnioittavat Modesty Blaisea.

Älykäs, kaunis ja vaarallinen viholliselleen.

Suurin syy siihen miksi “tappelet kuin tyttö” on isoin kohteliaisuus jonka voit sanoa taistelun jälkeen.

Suositellaan vahvoille, rohkeille naisille. Niin kuin sun mutsis.

Chester Brown: Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus

The idiosyncratic master Chester Brown continues his thoughts on sex work.

The iconoclastic and bestselling cartoonist of “Paying for It: A comic-strip memoir about being a john” and “Louis Riel” returns and with a polemical interpretation of the Bible that will be one of the most controversial and talked-about graphic novels of 2016.

“Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus” is the retelling in comics form of nine biblical stories that present Chester Brown’s fascinating and startling thesis about biblical representations of prostitution.
Brown weaves a connecting line between Bathsheba, Ruth, Rahab, Tamar, Mary of Bethany, and the Virgin Mother. He reassesses the Christian moral code by examining the cultural implications of the Bible’s representations of sex work.

Naisille jotka eivät kaihda mitään aihetta.

Roger Leloup: Yoko Tsuno 9 – The Forge of Vulcan

Yoko palaa maan alla sijaitsevaan muukalaisten asuttamaan kaupunkiin, kun Karibialla tapahtuu omituinen onnettomuus.

Kaupunki ei ole enää entisensä, sillä Vinelaisten suhtautuminen maan alla asumiseen on muuttumassa.

Jotkut heistä haluavat palata maanpinnalle, ja joidenkin mielestä he voivat jakaa ylämaailman ihmisten kanssa, kun taas toiset uskovat että se vallattava voimalla ja vain Yoko Tsuno voi palauttaa rauhan.

Äideille ja mummoille jotka eivät luota vain voimaan, vaan myös älyyn.

Muista myös muut Yoko Tsunon seikkailut!

Diane Obomsawin: On Loving Women

“On Loving Women “is a new collection of stories about coming out, first love, and sexual identity by the animator Diane Obomsawin.

With this work, Obomsawin brings her gaze to bear on subjects closer to home–her friends’ and lovers’ personal accounts of realizing they’re gay or first finding love with another woman.
Each story is a master class in reaching the emotional truth of a situation with the simplest means possible. Her stripped-down pages use the bare minimum of linework to expressively reveal heartbreak, joy, irritation, and fear.

“On Loving Women” focuses primarily on adolescence–crushes on high school teachers, awkwardness on first dates–but also addresses much deeper-seated difficulties of being out: fears of rejection and of not being who others want one to be. Within these pages, Obomsawin has forged a poignant, powerful narrative that speaks to the difficulties of coming out and the joys of being loved.

Heille jotka tykkäävät romanttisesta kirjallisuudesta, mutta ilman turhaa hömppää.

Garth Ennis: Jennifer Blood 1 – A Woman’s Work Is Never Done

Jennifer Blood on normaali kotiäiti ja vaimo.

Joka aamu hän tekee miehelleen ja lapsilleen aamiaista, vie lapset kouluun, siivoaa talon, ottaa nokoset, tekee perheelle päivällistä, laittaa lapset nukkumaan ja antaa miehelleen hyvänyön suukon.

Tämän jälkeen hän kostamaan verisesti kaikille heille, jotka ovat tehneet vääryyttä!

Uskoakseni edellinen kuvaus sopii teidänkin äiteihin ja mummoihin? Vai tiedättekö te mitä he tekevät kun menette nukkumaan?

Minna & miehet – Minna Canthia sarjakuvana

Nykyajan pehmeälle miestaiteilijalle feministikirjailija Minna Canth (1844-1897) on järkäle, johon tarttuminen on pelottavaa.

Aseman ja Pohjois-Savon taidetoimikunnan kokoamassa kirjassa Canthia ja hänen tekstejään tulkitsee seitsemän sarjakuvantaiteilijaa: Jyrki Heikkinen, Reijo Kärkkäinen, Jyrki Nissinen, Pentti Otsamo, Jope Pitkänen ja Petteri Tikkanen.

Näissä paritansseissa ei ole alkuunkaan selvää, kumpi vie ja kumpi on vietävänä.

Vahvoille naisille.

Warren Ellis & Facundo Percio: Anna Mercury 1 – The Cutter

Warren Ellis introduces you to the sultry Anna Mercury in this collection of the first action-packed series!

Dancing amid the spires of a city called New Ataraxia, there is a woman who can cloud men’s minds, leap across buildings as if weightless, unerringly fire twin automatic pistols in the most insane conditions, and disappear in a crowded room.
She fights against the political repression of an insane technocratic society, and she comes from a place that no one in New Ataraxia has ever heard of… and she’s got one hour to save the city from itself!

A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retro-punk science fiction, and 21st century Weird Pulp Action, Anna Mercury is a headlong adventure serial about a beautiful and mysterious spy-adventurer who is not what she seems. Anna Mercury Volume 1 features all five of the original issues with art by all-new talent Facundo Percio as well as a special super-sized cover gallery!

Kovaa scifiä, kovaa toimintaa, kaikkea kivaa koville naisille.

Peter Bagge: Woman Rebel

Peter Bagge’s “Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story” is a dazzling and accessible biography of the social and political maverick, jam-packed with fact and fun.

In his signature cartoony, rubbery style, Bagge presents the life of the birth-control activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist from her birth in the late nineteenth century to her death after the invention of the birth control pill.

Balancing humor and respect, Bagge makes Sanger whole and human, showing how her flaws fueled her fiery activism just as much as her compassionate nature did.
Sanger’s life takes on a whole new vivacity as Bagge creates a fast-paced portrait of a trailblazer whose legacy as the founder of Planned Parenthood is still incredibly relevant, important, and inspiring.

Vahvoille naisille, osa II.

Garth Ennis & Russ Braun: Battlefields 8 – The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova

Acclaimed graphic novelist Garth Ennis (Preacher, Punisher) chronicles the two-decade journey of Anna Kharkova, the Russian ace pilot and war hero of World War II.

When Anna’s aircraft crashes behind enemy lines, her harrowing survival through Nazi prison conditions unwittingly makes her an outcast among her own people. Years later, she joins her longtime friend, Mouse, for a tour of duty in Korea, where an old adversary, now a higher-ranking officer, proves just as deadly as the American jet fighters overhead.

But it won’t be until 1964, when – after languishing in a remote Siberian punishment camp – the last of the women warriors is called to duty once more, and Anna Kharkova finally meets her destiny!

Todellisiin tapahtumiin ja ihmisiin perustuvista tarinoista tykkääville naisille.

Marguerite Abouet & Oubrerie Clément: Aya – Life in Yop City

Ivory Coast, 1978.

It’s a golden time, and the nation, too—an oasis of affluence and stability in West Africa—seems fueled by something wondrous.
Aya is loosely based upon Marguerite Abouet’s youth in Yop City. It is the story of the studious and clear-sighted 19-year old Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors.

It’s wryly funny, breezy account of the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City.

Osoittaaksesi että ei se elämä ole helpompaa tai vakavampaa muuallakaan.

Kelly Sue DeConnick & Valentine De Landro: Bitch Planet 1 – Extraordinary Machine

Eisner Award-nominated writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Captain Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of Bitch Planet, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation.

In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman’s failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy.
When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?

Mummoille ja äideille jotka eivät halua mitään nyyhkytarinoita luettavakseen.

Reetta Laitinen: Kirjailija ja madame

Oskar Pekkala on aloitteleva kirjailija.

Mimi Creutz on hämäräperäinen seurapiirimadame.

Epäsuhtainen rakkaustarina huipentuu traagisiin käänteisiin. 1920–30-luvuille sijoittuva albumi pohjautuu tositapahtumiin, kirjailija Olavi Paavolaisen ja madame Minna Craucherin väliseen suhteeseen.

Olavi Paavolainen (1903–1964) oli suomalainen kirjailija, esseisti, journalisti ja runoilija, aikansa merkittävä kulttuurivaikuttaja. Paavolainen oli Tulenkantajien, tunnetun eurooppamielisen kirjailijaseuran, ydinjoukkoa ja esitteli 1920- ja 1930-luvun teksteissään suomalaisille aikansa kulttuuri-ilmiöitä surrealismista natsismiin. Paavolaisen tunnetuimpia teoksia ovat Nykyaikaa etsimässä (1929), Kolmannen valtakunnan vieraana (1936) ja Synkkä yksinpuhelu (1946).

1920-luvun puoliväli oli Paavolaiselle kiihkeää aikaa, johon kuului useita naissuhteita, mm. Minna Craucheriin. Varsinainen suhde Craucherin kanssa kesti vain vuoden, mutta heidän kanssakäymisensä jatkui vuoteen 1930 asti, jolloin Craucher siirtyi politiikan pariin ja toimi Lapuan liikkeen varainhankkijana. Sotien jälkeen Paavolainen työskenteli Yleisradiossa teatteriosaston päällikkönä. Hän kuoli pahasti alkoholisoituneena vuonna 1964.

Minna Craucher, oik. Maria Vihelmiina Lindell, (1891–1932) syntyi köyhissä oloissa Pirkkalassa. Hän eli värikästä elämää Tampereella ja Helsingissä joutuen useita kertoja vankilaan, kunnes 20-luvun alussa loi itselleen uuden hahmon, Madame Minna Craucherin. Tarinansa mukaan hän oli saksalainen aatelisnainen, miljonääri ja antelias taiteensuosija. Lavasteisiin kuului muun muassa käsirahaa vastaan Stockmannilta saatu avoauto ja kuljettaja.

1920-luvulla Craucher piti Helsingissä kirjallista salonkia, josta muodostui tulenkantajien ja muiden nuorten kirjailijoiden suosima kokoontumispaikka. Craucher myös työskenteli aikakauslehti Seurassa, jonka yksi perustajista hän oli. 1930-luvun vaihteessa hän hakeutui mukaan Lapuan liikkeen toimintaan ja solmi tiiviit suhteet liikkeen johtomiehiin, kuten Vihtori Kosolaan. Ajauduttuaan epäsuosioon Lapuan liikkeessä hänet surmattiin omassa salongissaan 80 vuotta sitten, maaliskuussa 1932.

Suomen historiasta kiinnostuneille mummoille ja äideille.
