Turun Sarjakuvakaupan uutuuksia viikolla 13/2017

Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie: The Wicked + The Divine 4 – Rising Action

Every ninety years, twelve gods are reincarnated as young people.

They are loved.

They are hated.

And sometimes – just sometimes – they fall into open Superstar wars.

Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie: Phonogram 1 – Rue Britannia

Britannia is ten years dead.

Phonomancer David Kohl hadn’t spared his old patron a thought for almost as long… at which point his mind starts to unravel.

Can he discover what’s happened to the Mod-Goddess of Britpop while there’s still something of himself left?

A dark modern-fantasy in a world where music is magic, where a song can save your life, or end it.

Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie: Phonogram 2 – The Singles Club

The second series of Phonogram separates itself from the frenzied mob of adoring critics just long enough to transform into this handsome collected volume.

Seven individual-yet-interconnected stories set in a single night in a single club, each staring a young phonomancer, each exploring a different mystery of music and magic.

Includes a cover gallery and ‘Making Of’ extras.
We’ve put you on the guest list. Don’t be late. This is one night you’ll never forget.

Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie: Phonogram 3 – The Immaterial Girl

The creators of the award-winning THE WICKED + THE DIVINE return to their founding critical smash-hit, PHONOGRAM: THE IMMATERIAL GIRL.

In a world where music is magic, phonomancer Emily Aster sold half her personality for power.

Now, after a decade of brittle perfection, the deal starts to go bad as the girl behind the screen comes looking for revenge. You’ll never look at the “Take On Me” video the same ever again.

Includes copious “making of” material.

Moritz Stetter: Luther

Tarinan alussa vuonna 1505 nuori opiskelija on palaamassa lomalta vanhempiensa luota.

Käytyään puun varjoon lepäämään nuorukainen torkahtaa, mutta herää kohta salamaniskuun ja hirvittäviin tuomiopäivää enteileviin näkyihin.
Kauhistunut matkalainen rukoilee apua Pyhältä Annalta ja lupaa: ”Jos annat minun elää, ryhdyn munkiksi!” Pian rajuilma tyyntyy ja Martti täyttää lupauksensa.

Mutta kaikki ei ole vain suurta graafisesti leiskuvaa draamaa. Moritz Stetter valottaa myös näitä tapahtumia edeltävää historiaa. Tärkeintä on tietenkin se, mitä tuosta kaikesta seurasi. Reformaation eli uskonpuhdistuksen juhlavuotena on hyvä tutustua kirkkohistoriallisen mullistuksen takana olevaan mieheen, josta – kuten useimmista merkkihenkilöistä kautta aikojen – on paljon vääriä käsityksiä.

Sarjakuva-albumi kuvaa vaikuttavasti 500 vuoden takaista saksalaista yhteiskuntaa ja henkistä ilmapiiriä, joka johti luterilaisen kirkon syntyyn.

Alan Moore & Jacen Burrows: Providence Act 1

Due to overwhelming demand, we offer one final printing of the Providence Act 1 Hardcover!

Alan Moore’s quintessential horror series has set the standard for a terrifying reinvention of the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

From pencils to Photoshop, print to digital, Moore shares his own observations, techniques, and templates developed during the creation of his award-winning comics Strangers In Paradise, Echo, and Rachel Rising.

Jack, Linton, and Sonny look for cures to their football club’s unexplainable woes, while Shauna, Charlotte, and Mildred try to find a way for compassion and justice to triumph in the face of die-hard sports fanaticism.

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.

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.

Ville Pirinen: Yhesti yhes paikas 1-3

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon is the second volume in the adventures of Shigeru Mizuki’s bizarre yokai boy Kitaro and his gaggle of otherworldly friends.

These seven stories date from the golden age of Gegege no Kitaro, when Mizuki had perfected the balance of folklore, comedy, and horror that made Kitaro one of Japan’s most beloved characters.

In Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon, Kitaro and his father, Medama Oyaji, face off against one of their most powerful enemies–the self-styled Yokai Supreme Commander known as Nurarihyon.
Over the course of this volume, Kitaro takes on the swamp-dwelling Sawa Kozo, the mysterious Diamond Yokai, and the sea giant called Umizato, and wages a double feature of battles against the bizarre Odoro Odoro. Finally, Kitaro journeys to hell itself in the infamous and surreal story “Hell Ride.”

In addition to more than 150 pages of Mizuki’s all-ages monster fun, Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon includes bonus materials: “Yokai Files” that introduce Japan’s folklore monsters and a “History of Kitaro” essay by the translator Zack Davisson. If you found the world of yokai fascinating in The Birth of Kitaro, you will find even more to love in Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon!

Mooncop is equal parts funny and melancholy. capturing essential truths about humanity and making this a story of the past, present, and future, all in one.
Like his Guardian and New Scientist strips, as well as his previous graphic novel, Goliath, Mooncop is told with Tom Gauld’s distinctive, matter-of-fact storytelling and dry humor ― an approach that has earned him fans around the world.

Gabriel Hardman: The Belfry

When an airliner crashes in a remote jungle, everyone walks away unscathed only to find you can’t escape the lush, brutal world of the Belfry.

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.

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.
