Tuomas Myllylän originaalinäyttely Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla huhtikuussa, avajaiset pe 31.3.2017 klo 17–19

kulkijoita

Kulkijat ovat jotain mitä voit aavistaa pimeydessä katuvalojen ulkopuolella, silmänurkassasi kun olet yksin kotona tai unissasi, joista heräät otsa hiessä muistamatta mitä näit. Nyt nämä otukset, koneet ja hirviöt kuitenkin ovat astuneet esiin ja nähtäväksi Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla. Tuomas Myllylä on tallentanut kotinurkissaan hiipivät pienet ja vähän isommatkin oliot, synkkien metsien hiljaiset asukkaat ja ikivanhat konejumalat paperille työskennellessään vuosia maatalouslomittajana Pohjois-Pohjanmaalla. Nyt tuon eksoottisen maailmankolkan kauhunäyt on talletettu musteen avulla paperille lähes tieteellisellä pieteetillä. Tule ja katso!

Näyttelynavajaisissa julkaistaan 40-sivuinen lehti, joka sisältää kaksi tarinaa: Troll Patrol ja Bob the Killbot.

Tuomas Myllylä on etelään kotiutunut sarjakuvataiteilija Pohjois-Pohjanmaalta. 30-vuotias innokas historiaharrastaja on tähän mennessä saattanut maailmaan kolme sarjakuva-albumia, ja työstää parhaillaan Pakanat-trilogian viimeistä osaa.

Lisäksi Myllylältä on julkaistu sarjakuvanovelleja eri yhteyksissä, kuten syksyllä Arktiselta Banaanilta julkaistavassa Eino Leinon Helkavirret kokoelmassa sekä Turun sarjakuvaseuran Scifi-antologiassa.

Sarjakuvien lisäksi Tuomas Myllylä tekee kuvituksia vähän milloin mistäkin, mutta erityisesti kauhu-, scifi- ja fantasiahenkiset aiheet ovat sydäntä lähellä. Näitä kuvituksia on julkaistu runsaasti Tähtivaeltaja-lehdessä.

Cullen Bunn & Salva Espin: Deadpool – Back in Black

During 1984’s SECRET WARS, Deadpool was introduced to an alien symbiote who went on to become Spider-Man’s black costume and, eventually, Venom.

OK, OK, maybe that really happened in DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS. Point is, did you know that after Spider-Man rejected the costume…it went slinking back to Deadpool on the rebound? And they went on adventures together? You didn’t? Well, you will, now, thanks to this series by Cullen Bunn (The DEADPOOL KILLOGY) & Salva Espin (DEADPOOL & THE MERCS FOR MONEY)!
Ville Pirinen: Yhesti yhes kymmenennes paikas

Ville Pirisen maineikas Yhesti yhes paikas -sarja on edennyt juhlallisesti kymmenenteen osaansa.

Sen kunniaksi kirjasen koko on nyt suurempi, kannet kovemmat, sivuja enemmän ja sävyt värikkäämmät.
Sisällön ei silti pidä pelätä uudistuneen, sillä taiteilija Pirinen kokoaa yhteen sarjan taustalla vaikuttaneita teemoja ja syventää niitä jopa kolminkertaiselle metatasolle pohtiessaan syvällisiä syntyjä tarinoista ja niiden kertomisesta.

Seikkailu alkaa pikkupitäjän koviksien epäonnistuneella itsemurharisteilyllä ja jatkuu vintage-hengessä syrjätien varren vessattomalla kirpputorilla. On siinä taas ajattelemista omalle kohalle! Lopun kaksi lyhyttä tarinaa pyyhkäisevät pois ahdistuksen ja jättävät lukijalle kevyesti kivan fiiliksen.

Sari Luhtanen & Tiina Paju: Maisa & Kaarina – Viimeinen tikki

Onko Maisalle ja Kaarinalle tullut eteen viimeinen tikki?

Suorasukainen parivaljakko palaa uuden albumin myötä oleellisten ongelmien äärelle.

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

Octavia E. Butler & Damian Duffy & John Jennings: Kindred

Octavia E. Butler’s bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format.

More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler’s mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century.

Butler’s most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South.
As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana’s own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him.

Wolverine vs. Deadpool

The Merc with a Mouth takes on the Mutant with the Mutton chops in their greatest battles — and occasional team-ups!

Katanas and claws clash in their brutal first meeting — but when someone targets Weapon X survivors, Wolverine must ride to Deadpool’s rescue!

And when a bounty is placed on Logan’s head, guess who tries to collect!
An assault on a Hydra base will have them at each other’s throats, while Wolvie plays straight man to Wade’s wisecracker in a showdown with a Shi’ar robot. But things really go off the deep end in the main event — one ultimate, over-the-top, slicing-and-dicing slobberknocker!

Ville Pirinen: Yhesti yhes paikas 1-3

Myöhäsyntyiset Yhesti yhes paikas -sarjan ystävät ovat jo jonkin aikaa haikailleet parin varhaisimman loppuunmyydyn osan perään.

Enää ei tarvitse elää puutteessa, sillä peräti kolme ensimmäistä Yhesti-kirjaa on nyt koottu vantteraksi yhteisniteeksi, joka sisältää mm. klassiset sattumukset uimahallin saunan notkeimmasta miehestä, sian teurastuksesta, tavattoman kovaonnisesta yläasteen voikkamaikasta, löyhyttelijästä, buutseista ja kikkailevan sekakäyttäjän erheestä.
Kaikki tyynni silkkaa hatarasti tosipohjaista tsykedeliaa, josta emme vissiin opi tasan mitään! Muutamat bonussivut täydentävät kokonaisuuden.

Jukka Tilsa: Tupelon tuplaseriffi

Tilsan tuotannon lonkerot ulottuvat alkuaikojen hervottomasta undergroundista viljavainioiden kautta kartoittamattomaan ulkoavaruuteen.

Tässä pikku kirjasessa Tilsa valloittaa villin lännen aseinaan lasso, suksi, kirves, kanuuna, suurennuslasi ja wanne-zaha.
Tupelossa käynnistyvät kaksinkertaiset tupenrapinat, kun avaruudesta pudonnut musta aukko joutuu rikollisten vääriin käsiin. Siitä alkaa pakahduttava tapahtumasarja, jollainen voi syntyä vain Eräjärven absurdistin aivosolukossa.
Lipare julkaistiin alun perin vuonna 2008 ja myytiin vikkelästi loppuun. On toisen otoksen aika!

Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez: Tales from the Darkside

Joe Hill’s nerve-shredding re-imagining of Tales from the Darkside never made it to TV… but the dead are restless and refuse to stay buried!

Adapts the episodes written by Hill and illustrated by Locke & Key co-creator Gabriel Rodriguez!

Four stories of the macabre and malevolent! One coulda-been, shoulda-been TV epic on paper with pictures that don’t move! Step out of the warm, sunlit world you think of as reality and get ready to take a chilling walk… on the DARKSIDE.

P.A. Manninen & Aura Ijäs: Pottakylän lapset

Sarjakuva pystyy viihdyttämään sekä lapsi- että aikuislukijaa, sen sanoma vain avautuu lukijan ikä- ja kokemuspohjan perusteella eri tavoin. Pottakylän lapset viittaa nimensä puolesta Astrid Lindgrenin Melukylän lapsiin, mutta on sisällöltään päivitetty versio perinteisistä lasten tarinoista nykypäivään. Se on uusi mutaatio suomalaisen huumorin evoluutiossa.

Tämän päivän lasten satumaailmat löytyvät internetistä, ja älypuhelimia naksutellaan jo päiväkoti-iässä. Pottakylän lapsissa huumori on tummasävyistä, perustuen arkisiin tilanteisiin fantasialla väritettynä. Lasten suusta kuullaan kaunistelematon totuus, kun piltit nakkelevat vanhemmilleen takaisin näiden lausumia latteuksia ja tulkitsevat muutenkin aikuisten maailmaa oman perspektiivinsä kautta.

Pikkuvanhoja lapsihahmoja on nähty sarjakuvissa paljon, mutta Pottakylän lapsien radikaalit tenavat ovat toista maata. Hirviöt eivät heitä pelota, naurun aihetta löytyy ikävämmistäkin asioista. Lapsien ja lastenmielisten ikuisesti suosimaa pissa- ja kakkahuumoria unohtamatta.

Pottakylän lapset -sarja pyrkii jäsentämään vallitsevaa kulttuurikaaosta, jossa todellisuus ja kuvitelmat ovat sekoittuneet keskenään pysyvästi, eikä mikään ole niin epätotta kuin tosi-tv. Sarjan kerrontakeinot on lainattu ikivanhoista sarjakuvista ja esimoderneista pala-animaatioista.

Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples: Saga – Kuudes kirja

Hazelin oppivuodet! Vanhemmistaan eroon joutunut Hazel yrittää parhaansa mukaan sopeutua koulutukseen Maantuntuman hoivissa.

Samaan aikaan Alana ja Marko etsivät pientä tyttöään epätoivoisesti, mutta kaikkeus on suuri paikka…

Saga on sarjakuvamaailman arvostelu- ja myyntimenestys. TV-sarjoista Lost ja Under the Dome tunnettu Brian K. Vaughan on tämän hetken maineikkaimpia ja omaperäisimpiä sarjakuvakirjoittajia.

Jesse Matilainen: Suomen suurin kommunisti

.Mitä sinä olet valmis uhraamaan vallankumouksen vuoksi? Luopuisitko perheestäsi, kotimaastasi, hengestäsi?

“Tarina perustuu tositapahtumiin ja henkilöt ovat historiallisia, mutta otin joitakin vapauksia tapahtumien kuvaamisessa, pääasiassa tiedon vähyyden, ristiriitaisuuden tai epäluotettavuuden takia”, sanoo sarjakuvaromaanin tekijä Jesse Matilainen. Suomen Suurin Kommunisti käsittelee sisällissodan jälkeen Neuvostoliittoon paenneiden punaisten kohtaloita ja heidän pyrkimyksiään käynnistää Suomessa uusi vallankumous. Kirjan ensimmäinen osa kuvaa vuosia 1918-1924 sisällissodasta Leninin kuolemaan, toinen kattaa vuodet 1932-1939 Lapuan liikkeen noususta talvisotaan.

Sarjakuvaromaanin päähenkilöt ovat idealismissaankin käytännönläheinen Hanna Malm ja hänen vastapelurinsa, Stalinin kultapoika Otto Wille Kuusinen. Heidän suhteensa paljastaa vallankumouksen alkuperäisten ihanteiden ja totalitaarisen todellisuuden karmaisevan ristiriidan. Muita keskeisiä hahmoja ovat Aino Kuusinen, Arvo “Poika” Tuominen, Tyyne Tokoi, Yrjö Sirola ja Kullervo Manner.

Valérie Mangin & Thierry Démarez: Alix Senator 2 – Viimeinen farao

Rooma vuonna 12 eKr. Keisari Augustus hallitsee yksinvaltiaana. Alix on ylittänyt 50 vuoden iän, ja hänestä on tullut senaattori.

Italiassa vallitseva rauha on vain näennäistä. Keisari on joutunut murhayrityksen kohteeksi, ja hyökkääjä väitti toimivansa Caesarin nimissä! Diktaattori on mukamas ilmestynyt Egyptiin tultuaan murhatuksi senaatissa 30 vuotta aiemmin. Alix poikineen joutuu selvittämään, onko tarina mielipuolen keksintöä, huiputusta vai totta. Retki vie heidät Aleksandrian ylellisistä palatseista aina alkupyramidin uumeniin.

Käsikirjoittaja Valérie Mangin ja piirtäjä Thierry Démarez jatkavat Verikotkissa alkanutta tarinaa.

Jul & Achdé: Lucky Luke uudet seikkailut 11 – Luvattu maa

70-vuotias sarjakuvasankari Lucky Luke sai juhlavuotensa kunniaksi tekijätiimiinsä uutta verta, sillä tuoreimman pitkän seikkailun käsikirjoituksesta vastaa nimimerkillä Jul operoiva Julien Berjeaut. Kuvittajana jatkaa vanha tuttu Achdé.

Luvattu maa vie sankarinsa seikkailulle halki Yhdysvaltojen, kun Luke saa tehtäväkseen johdattaa juutalaisen perheen St. Louisista Villiin länteen. Matka on pitkä, eikä lystikkäiltä kommelluksilta vältytä. Perinteiseen tapaan mukana on mainio kavalkadi historiallisia merkkihenkilöitä lukijan bongattavaksi.

Yann & Olivier Schwartz: Pikon ja Fantasion uudet seikkailut 13 – Mustien uhrien herra

Pikon ja Fantasion uudet seikkailut jatkuvat!

Mustien uhrien herra päättää vuonna 2014 ilmestyneessä Leopardinainen-albumissa alkaneen tarinan, mutta toimii itsenäisenä seikkailunakin.
Nostalginen tunnelmointi ja villi viidakkotoiminta vuorottelevat, kun sankariparivaljakkomme ja Spip seuraavat leopardiheimoon kuuluvaa Aniotaa Kongoon, jossa he saavat vastaansa villieläimiä, robottigorilloja, taikavoimia ja vanhan tutun kenraali Von Knochenin.

Joe Casey & Piotr Kowalski: Sex 5 – Reflexology

The saga of Saturn City continues to unfold.

Who will live?

Who will die?

Who will get it on?

And who will figure out exactly what it means to be a fully functioning adult?

Kurt Busiek & Ben Dewey: The Autumnlands 2 – Woodland Creatures

Stranded in the mountains, the Great Champion and the young dog-wizard Dusty discover gods, goats, living statues, oracular crows, and dangerous secrets about the history of the Autumnlands.

Secrets that could help them save the world—if they’re able to survive.

The hit epic-fantasy series continues, by superstar creators KURT BUSIEK, BENJAMIN DEWEY and JORDIE BELLAIRE. Named one of the A.V. Club’s Best of 2015.

Adam Rapp & Mike Cavallaro: Decelerate Blue

The future waits for no one.

In this new world, speed and efficiency are everything, and the populace zooms along in a perpetually stimulated haze. Angela thinks she’s the only person in her family―maybe the only person on the planet―who sees anything wrong with this picture. But the truth is she’s not alone.

Angela finds herself recruited into a resistance movement where the key to rebellion is taking things slow. In their secret underground hideout, they create a life unplugged from the rapid-fire culture outside. Can they free the rest of the world before the powers that be shut down their utopian experiment?

From revolutionary and award-winning playwright Adam Rapp and veteran cartoonist and animator Mike Cavallaro comes Decelerate Blue, a dark, breath-taking new vision of an all-too-plausible future for America.

Dan Abnett & Brett Booth: Titans 1 – The Return of Wally West

The members of the super-team known as the Teen Titans were heroes but, more than that, the best of friends.

A special bond held them together through even the toughest situations. Then their connection became a memory. And that memory faded, stolen from time. Only one person remembers.

His name is Wally West. Once upon a time, he was Kid Flash, but now he is a refugee from a lost universe and it’s up to him to reawaken his former friends and re-forge their bond.

Nightwing. Donna Troy. Beast Boy. Arsenal. Lilith. They must come together and defeat the enemy who destroyed their memories or be destroyed themselves.

Rob Williams: Suicide Squad 1 – The Black Vault

Assembled by the tough-as-nails intelligence expert Amanda Waller and overseen by disgraced military genius Captain Rick Flag, the men, women and monsters of the Suicide Squad-a.k.a. Task Force X-do the jobs that are too dirty for any superheroes to soil their capes with.

Their latest mission should be easy enough: recover a powerful cosmic weapon called the Black Vault from enemy hands.
The Suicide Squad always gets the job done (mostly) but this time, when the weapon’s dark influence spreads and the team is driven to madness and mayhem (more than usual), there’s only one person sane enough to save the Squad from destruction…the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!

Petteri Tikkanen: Eka kerta

Millainen mahtaa olla Eeron eka kerta? Löytyykö tosirakkaus rakettien paukkeessa? Pääseekö Eero opiskelemaan? Olisiko hänen aika muuttaa omaan tupaan, kun isän juopottelu alkaa karata käsistä?

Petteri Tikkanen jatkaa sympaattisen Eeron elämänvaiheista kertovaa sarjaa viidennellä osalla, jossa miehen ikään ehtineen päähenkilön elämä kääntyy monin tavoin uuteen suuntaan. Albumin vahva grafiikka, levollinen kerronta ja elämänmakuinen asenne hurmaavat lukijan.

Sisältää Hannu Kesolan haastattelun ja kolme sarjakuvanovellia, joista kahta ei ole aiemmin julkaistu suomeksi.

Muina tekijöinä ovat Randy Valiente, Steven Bagatzky, Mauro Bueno ja Ville Vuorinen.

Inio Asano: Nijigahara Holograph

Fantagraphics is proud to welcome the great Inio Asano (Solanin, What a Wonderful World!) to its acclaimed literary manga line.

Even as butterflies ominously proliferate in town, the rumor of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school spreads among the children.

When the body of Arié Kimura’s mother is found by this tunnel’s entrance, next to apparently human traces, the legend seems to be confirmed.
Is the end of the world coming?
In order to appease the wrath of the beast, the children decide to offer it a sacrifice: The unfortunate Arié, whom they believe to be the cause of the curse, is shoved into a well that leads to the Nijigahara tunnel ― an act that in turns pushes Komatsuzaki, the budding thug who has carried a torch for Arié for a while already, entirely over the edge.

But this is only the beginning of the complex, challenging, obliquely told Nijigahara Holograph, which takes place in two separate timelines and involves the suicidal Suzuki; Higure, his stalkerish would-be girlfriend; and their teacher Miss Sakaki, whose heavily bandaged face remains a mystery; and many more ― brothers, sisters, parents, co-workers, teachers, aggressors and victims who are all inextricably linked to one another and all will eventually ― ten years later ― have to live with what they’ve done or suffered through.

Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo: Doctor Strange 3 – Blood in the Aether

In the aftermath of THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC, journey back to the first days of Doctor Strange!

How did Stephen Strange become the Sorcerer Supreme — and how has he lost it all?

In the present, Strange is on the brink of death, his magic nearly depleted. Sensing the Master of the Mystic Arts is at his weakest, his greatest foes will return from the shadows, ready to strike — starting with one of his oldest rivals, Baron Mordo!

But as a parade of bad guys line up to take their shot, one of Strange’s newest enemies may be the deadliest of all. During ORIGINAL SIN, one of the slain Watcher’s eyes fell into the hands of the Orb — and with that immense power, he has set his sights on Doctor Strange!

Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese in Siberia

With this book Pratt leaves behind the short story form he’d used for twenty-one interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel.

In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Corto Maltese is engaged by the Red Lanterns―a Chinese secret society made up entirely of women―to find an armored train laden with gold that belonged to the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II.

They aren’t the only ones lusting after the treasure. The adventure, which shifts from the hidden courts of Venice to the mysterious alleys of Hong Kong, from Shanghai to Manchuria and Mongolia to Siberia, also attracts regular and irregular armies, as well as revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries.
The sweeping plot allows Pratt to fully investigate the complicated and competing motivations of his cast that includes the return of Rasputin and the introduction of the cold and dangerous Duchess Marina Seminova, the enigmatic warrior/spy named Shanghai-Lil, and historical figures such as the “Mad Baron” Roman Ungern-Sternberg, a Russian general who who sees himself as the modern-day Genghis Khan!

Beyond Game Culture

In 2016, a group of Turku University students started a project to mix academic game studies and comic books.

This project adapted various studies in the field of retrogaming and game history in a comic book form in order to reach new audiences for the academic field and to offer different viewpoints to studies themselves.

This comic book is a result of that project.

Greg Carpenter: The British Invasion!

Moore. Gaiman. Morrison.

They came from Northampton, West Sussex, and Glasgow, and even though they spoke with different dialects, they gave American comics a new voice — one loud and clear enough to speak to the Postmodern world.

Like a triple-helix strand of some advanced form of DNA, their careers have remained irrevocably intertwined. They go together, like Diz, Bird, and Monk… or like Kerouac, Burroughs, and Ginsberg… or like the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who.

Taken individually, their professional histories provide an incomplete picture of the British Invasion, but together they redefined the concept of what it means to be a comic book writer.
Collectively, their story becomes the story of mainstream comics in the modern era. It’s the story you’re about to read. From Sequart Organization.

But his employees aren’t nearly as immune to radiation as he is.
Fingers crossed that Mercs for Money has a good medical plan! (But knowing Wade, it almost certainly does not.)
First target on the irradiated hit list: Negasonic Teenage Warhead. But defusing her won’t be easy – in fact it could be a very bad idea. And if the MfMs find her too hot to handle, wait ’til they take on Radioactive Man!

Deadpool’s got mo’ mercs, mo’ money and, naturally, mo’ problems!

Will Eisner: Expressive Anatomy for Comics and Narrative

Designed and outlined by Will Eisner before his death in 2005, this posthumous masterwork, the third and final book in the Will Eisner Instructional Series, finally reveals the secrets of Eisner’s own techniques and theories of movement, body mechanics, facial expressions, and posture: the key components of graphic storytelling.

From his earliest comics, including the celebrated Spirit, to his pioneering graphic novels, Eisner understood that the proper use of anatomy is crucial to effective storytelling.
His control over the mechanical and intuitive skills necessary for its application set him apart among comics artists, and his principles of body grammar have proven invaluable to legions of students in overcoming what is perhaps the most challenging aspect of creating comics.
Buttressed by dozens of illustrations, which display Eisner’s mastery of expression, both subtle and overt, Expressive Anatomy for Comics and Narrative will benefit comics fans, students, and teachers and is destined to become the essential primer on the craft.

Jon Morris: The League of Regrettable Superheroes

You know about Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, but have you heard of Doll Man, Doctor Hormone, or Spider Queen?

In The League of Regrettable Superheroes, you’ll meet one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.

So prepare yourself for such not-ready-for-prime-time heroes as Bee Man (Batman, but with bees), the Clown (circus-themed crimebuster), the Eye (a giant, floating eyeball; just accept it), and many other oddballs and oddities. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The League of Regrettable Superheroes will appeal to die-hard comics fans, casual comics readers, and anyone who enjoys peering into the stranger corners of pop culture.

Noah Van Sciver: The Hypo – The Melancholic Young Lincoln

The debut graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver follows the twentysomething Abraham Lincoln as he loses everything, long before becoming our most beloved president.

Lincoln is a rising Whig in the state’s legislature as he arrives in Springfield, IL to practice law.
With all of his possessions under his arms in two saddlebags, he is quickly given a place to stay by a womanizing young bachelor who becomes his friend and close confidant.

Lincoln builds a life and begins friendships with the town’s top lawyers and politicians. He attends elegant dances and meets an independent-minded young woman from a high-society Kentucky family, and after a brisk courtship, becomes engaged.

But, as time passes and uncertainty creeps in, young Lincoln is forced to battle a dark cloud of depression brought on by a chain of defeats and failures culminating into a nervous breakdown that threatens his life and sanity. This cloud of dark depression Lincoln calls “The Hypo.”

Dense crosshatching and an attention to detail help bring together this completely original telling of a man driven by an irrepressible desire to pull himself up by his bootstraps, overcome all obstacles, and become the person he strives to be. All the while, unknowingly laying the foundation of character he would use as one of America’s greatest presidents.

Noah Van Sciver: Saint Cole

Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe who feels trapped working overtime at a pizza restaurant to support his girlfriend, Nicole, and their infant child.

Especially when Nicole invites her troubled mother, Angela, to move into their two-bedroom apartment until she lands on her feet again.
Joe reacts to this development by further retreating into alcohol. He thinks he loves Nicole but resents her at the same time. They probably wouldn’t still be with each other if she hadn’t become pregnant.

Joe wants out. He’s angry. He’s in a position to act rashly. And he does.

This sophomore graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver may seem like a left turn from his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel biography of Abraham Lincoln (The Hypo), yet upon closer reflection, it continues Van Sciver’s interest in pathos and the human condition.

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.

Turun Sarjakuvakaupan helmikuun 2017 myydyimmät

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Hanneriina Moisseinen: Kannas (Listalle palaaja)

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.

4. Eri tekijöitä: Sipilä (Uusi)

Kansainvälisessä politiikassa on viime aikoina oltu jännän äärellä.

Trump, Brexit ja mitä näitä on.
Suuria globaaleja kysymysmerkkejä herättävät tapahtumat lähes jättävät koti-Suomen suhmuroinnit varjoonsa, mutta osataan sitä täälläkin.

Hallitus sekoilee minkä ehtii ja erityisesti pääministerin toilailu mainospipoineen ja tekstiviesteineen herättää monia kysymyksiä.
Tämä sarjakuvalehti ei luultavasti vastaa niistä yhteenkään.
LEHTI SISÄLTÄÄ PAPERINUKEN JA NAAMARIN!

3. Karoliina Korhonen: Finnish Nightmares (Edellinen sijoitus: 2)

When they have to promote themselves. When an acquaintance says hello by kissing them on a cheek. When they owe a favour. When they wait for a bus in pouring rain, but there´s already someone under the pentice. When they run out of coffee.

That´s when it happens. A finnish awkward moment.

The character of Karoliina Korhonen´s comic strips is finnish Matti, who loves silence and personal space. If someone gets angry or is behaving badly, he wonders what he has done wrong.

Finnish Nightmares is a book about what it is like to be a finn in social occasions. For a foreigner the book opens implied codes that can be difficult to understand but are shared with all finns.

For finns we recommend they would read this book behind closed doors. Bursting with laughter in public is so embarrassing…

2. Pertti Jarla: Fingerpori 10 (Uusi)

Kymmenen vuotta on paasattu, että Pertti Jarlan Fingerpori on aivan naurettava sarja.

Nauraminen jatkuu edelleen, vaikka juhlavan Fingerpori 10 -kirjan kantta koristaakin suorastaan kieron virkamies Jorma Suoron naama.

Jarla on jälleen valikoinut parhaat puujalat vuoden Fingerpori-stripeistä.

1. Jyrki Nissinen: Borgtron #18 (Uusi)

Shitty Watchmen

Shitty Watchmen is a formalist exercise analyzing the language of comics as utilized by Alan Moore and, more importantly, Dave Gibbons.

Created by Dave Baker, Nicole Goux, Rachel Dukes, Malachi Ward, Nick Diaz, Emilie Vo, Sam Ancona, Chuck Kerr, Colby Bluth, Robert Negrete, and Sabrina Deigert, Shitty Watchmen seeks to scrutinize the masterful use of composition and panel breakdown within the most undeniably complex comic book ever created.

Thus…

Shitty Watchmen.

This comic comes signed by Rachel Dukes.

Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes, filled with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography.

Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold.
When Karen’s investigation takes us back to Anka’s life in Nazi Germany, the reader discovers how the personal, the political, the past, and the present converge.

Gina Wynbrandt: Someone Please Have Sex with Me

Gina Wynbrandt’s debut graphic novel is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration, shot through with American pop-culture erudition.

“It’s impossible not to fall in love with this hilarious minx as she lunges across the page, nostrils flared, hurling herself into increasingly ridiculous romantic misadventures. Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell!” — Lisa Hanawalt, production designer/producer of BoJack Horseman, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes

“Someone Please Have Sex With Me plays with conventions of style and color, featuring pleasingly feminine sherbet-y tones juxtaposed against a storyline about a woman looking for love in all the wrong places—in all the wrong ways.” — The LA Times

“Smart, wickedly funny, and transgressive. More comics like this, please!” — John Porcellino, author of The Hospital Suite

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.

But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle.

To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home.

In this third volume in the definitive English language edition of Hugo Pratt’s masterpiece, the action moves from South America to Europe against the backdrop of the First World War.

Events take Corto from a small island in the Venetian lagoon, where he comes face to face with a beautiful blonde spy, to Stonehenge and an adventure with Merlin, Morgana, and Puck.
Along the way he meets Ernest Hemingway and future billionaire Aristotle Onassis, Irish revolutionary Banshee O’Danann, the legendary Red Baron, and an intense cast of characters who weave in and out of a series of labyrinthine plots and counter-plots.

Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese – The Ethiopian

When Corto Maltese arrives in the Middle East and Africa in 1918 the shifting sands and loyalties reveal colonial powers still battling for domination over each other and the indigenous people.

The desert of Yemen, controlled by the fading Ottoman Empire, is the setting for “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful and Compassionate,” where Corto meets Cush, the Danikil warrior with whom he establishes a close yet conflicted relationship.
In “The Coup de Grace” the stubborn racism of an English commander of a small fort in British Somaliland leads to conflict with Cush and the Dervish army of Sayyid Mohamed, whom the British call “The Mad Mullah.”
The action moves to Ethiopia amidst inter-tribal conflict in “…and of Other Romeos and Other Juliets,” as Cush introduces Corto to the mysterious and powerful shaman Shamael, who hears the voices of the dead and of devils.
German East Africa is the background of “The Leopard-Men of the Rufiji,” where Corto is engulfed in a dreamlike atmosphere that reveals how African justice operates outside the constraints of “white” law.

Jon Baird & Rick Ross: The Explorers Guild 1 – A Passage to Shambhala

Return to the golden age of adventure with this gorgeously wrought, action-packed, globetrotting tale that combines the bravura storytelling of Kipling with the irresistible, illustrative style of Hergé’s Adventures of Tintin.

Behind the staid public rooms of an old world gentlemen’s club operates a more mysterious organization: The Explorers Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who bravely journey to those places in which light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth.
The secrets they seek are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, buried in the ocean floor and lodged deep in polar ice. The aim of The Explorers Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world.

This beautifully produced combination graphic novel and adventure tale, set against the backdrop of World War I, concerns the Guild’s quest to find the golden city of Buddhist myth.
The search will take them from the Polar North to the Mongolian deserts, through the underground canals of Asia to deep inside the Himalayas, before the fabled city finally divulges its secrets and the globe-spanning journey plays out to its startling conclusion.

Real Deal Comix

A vital piece of alternative comic history about black culture by black cartoonists.

Inspired by magazines like Mad and traditional superhero comics, Real Deal magazine was a self-published, independent comic book created in the 1990s by Lawrence Hubbard (a.k.a “RawDog”) and H.P. McElwee (a.k.a. “R.D. Bone”).
Peopled with a cast out of a blaxploitation movie ― convicts, hustlers, drug addicts,crack whores, car thieves,and murderers ― these cult-classic comics straddle the line between satirizing and showing the harsh realities of urban life.
Black & white with 36 pages of color.

Twelve years later and he is called upon to honor that promise.

Multi-award winning creator, Jiro Taniguchi, builds the tension to a massive climax in this exciting drama!

Joan Cornélla: Mox Nox

This book collects the Spanish cartoonist’s twisted comics, which are popular on Facebook.

Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornella’s viciously funny Mox Nox single-page strips are wordless, full-color, hand-painted marvels of the form.
That his visually inviting artwork is in the service of Cornella’s graphic sense of humor/horror only heightens the appeal.
Mox Nox is populated almost exclusively by smiling psychopaths who invariably turn even the most mundane situation into a side-splitting and cringe-inducing farce.

John Constantine, Hellblazer 15 – Highwater

It’s been a long, hard road that John Constantine has followed across the badlands of America.

After walking out of a burning maximum-security prison, into the hollows of Appalachia and through the snows of the Great Plains, England’s greatest magician is approaching the final leg of his intracontinental trek—and closing in on the real reason for the suicide of Richard “Lucky” Fermin, the trigger that set everything in motion to frame Constantine for murder.

To reach the end of this long and dangerous trail, however, he will have to pass through the bellies of two very different beasts: first, a nest of white supremacists in rural Montana, where Fermin’s widow has settled; and then, finally, Los Angeles—capital of an entire empire of decadence and home to the singularly American corruption that has hounded Constantine halfway around the globe.

Warren Ellis & Juan Jose Ryp: Wolfskin 1

Before history was recorded in stone and ink, some men wrote it in blood!

From the time before history began…
From the time when the continents were still connected by land…
From the harsh climes at the top of the world, a Northish soldier wrapped in a cape of wolfpelts walks south, into the forests of the High Midlands that are now Europe, to find a village cut in two by travelers from the East.
Soon, he too is torn – between duty to the lives he has ruined just by finding them, and duty to the hideous murder-god of the Northish wastes and the berserker drugs that are his sacrament!

Warren Ellis’ barbarian epic is finally collected, just in time for the new series coming late 2009! This first volume collects the original three-issue series with art by Ryp, Annual #1 with art by Pagliarani, and a huge cover gallery all wrapped in a stunning, new painted cover by Felipe Massafera!

Warren Ellis & Gianluca Pagliarani: Wolfskin 2 – Hundredth Dream

Wolfskin, a nomadic warrior, hopes to find a new purpose in life after the accidental slaughter of his own tribe while in the throes of an uncontrollable berserker rage.

Hired as a guide and swordsman for a rescue mission to the volcanic ice plains, he travels north with a band of misfits and magicians whose skills and ideology is perched between prehistory and the advent of technology.
What dreadful enemy will they face on the outskirts of civilization, and will Wolfskin even have a place in the world should he slay it?

Tom King & Michael Walsh: The Vision 2 – Little Better Than a Beast

Once upon a time a robot and a witch fell in love.

What followed was a tale of the dead and the dying, of the hopeful and the lost, of the wronged and the avenged.

Forty-five years in the making, this is the story of Scarlet Witch and the Vision.
Before family, there was love. And war.

Marian Churchland: Beast

Finnish with English translation

Sarjakuvaa kahdella kielellä – Sarjakuvaharjoituksia persiaksi ja suomeksi

Kaksikielinen sarjakuvan opetus- ja tehtäväkirja yhdistää kielen opettelun tarinankerronnan ja piirtämisen harjoitteluun ja on siksi oivallinen paketti niin kotiin, kerhoon kuin kouluun.

Kirja on tehty Suomessa asuville, persiaa kotikielenään puhuville lapsille, mutta monet tehtävistä sopivat kaikille persian kielestä kiinnostuneille iästä riippumatta.

Tehtäväkirjan käyttö ei vaadi sekä suomen että persian kielen tuntemusta, mutta kylläkin luku- ja kirjoitustaitoa jommallakummalla kielellä.
