The man’s intentions remain unknown, until he takes on a corrupt sheriff and the rural crew of racist arms dealers. The town’s impression of the man changes, and he’s seen as a hero – until his real intentions bubble to the surface.
The man isn’t there to end the gang, but to take it over. And he’s just getting started.

Matt Furie: Boy’s Club

This collection of slacker psychedelic comics spawned a thousand Internet memes.

Cartoonist Matt Furie’s deadpan comics showcase slacker roommates Andy, Brett, Landwolf, and Pepe in a series of comical vignettes combining laconic psychedelia, childlike enchantment, drug-fueled hedonism, and impish mischief.

The perpetually insouciant glaze of his characters belie the sharp verbal and visual wit of Furie, who delivers a stoner classic for the Tumblr generation.
In fact, Furie’s wildly popular teenage weirdoes became an overnight internet sensation when Pepe the Frog was widely adopted by users of 4chan and remixed ad infinitum from there (including uses by pop stars like Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry), giving Boy’s Club built-in recognition with many.
A spiritual cousin to Simon Hanselmann’s Megahex and Joán Cornella’s Mox Nox, Boy’s Club’s sense of humor will especially resonate with fans of stoner comedies and black humor.
Monochrome illustrations throughout.

He is Gotham City’s hero, its Dark Knight, its greatest protector. He is Batman. And he is not alone.

Vuoden 2017 Sarjakuva-Finlandia-ehdokkaat Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla

Muusikko AW Yrjänä valitsee vuoden 2017 Sarjakuva-Finlandia-tunnustuspalkinnon saajan valintaraadin asettamasta listasta.
Valinta julkistetaan 17.3.2017 klo 11.00 Tampereen yliopiston Linnan-rakennuksen Väinö Linna -salissa.
Kärkikymmenikköön kuuluvat seuraavat teokset (valintaraadin perusteet ohessa) :

Ossi Hiekkala: Nimettömien hautojen maa

“Ossi Hiekkala tietää, millaiselta kylmä hiki tuntuu otsalla. Niin tarkkanäköisesti hän kuvaa 2010- luvun Suomen rikollisuutta, jossa virheistä rangaistaan, vahingoilta ei vältytä eikä hyville ihmisille tapahdu hyviä asioita.

Hiekkala vie lukijan muun muassa alamaailman joukkosaunaan sekä unohtumattomalle automatkalle mersun takapenkillä.

Piirrostyyli korostaa finn noir -tarinoiden säälimättömyyttä ja realistisuutta. Värimaailmasta puuttuu lämpö – aivan kuten haudastakin.”

Petri Hiltunen: Praedor – Taivaan suuri susi

“Petri Hiltusen yksityiskohtiin paneutuva mustavalkografiikka herättää Jaconian fantasiatodellisuuden hienosti henkiin.

Velhojen, sotureiden ja seikkailijoiden kansoittamassa maailmassa rohkeus ja moraali joutuvat koetukselle, kun ennustusten valtias ryhtyy raivaamaan tietään koko Jaconian hallitsijaksi.

Lopputulos on kaavoihin kangistumaton, mielikuvituksellinen seikkailu, joka pitää lukijan otteessaan.”

Pauli Kallio & Christer Nuutinen: Kramppeja & nyrjähdyksiä – Ripa ja Kadunlakaisijat

“Viimeisimmässä Kramppeja ja Nyrjähdyksiä -albumissa tarkastellaan nykymaailman menoa tarkkanäköisesti mutta lempeästi.

Sarjakuvaan mahtuu niin avioliiton ulkopuolisia suhteita, potkujen saamista kuin apurahataiteilijaksi heittäytymistäkin.

Hahmot ovat tuttuja vuosien takaa, mutta heidän huomionsa arkipäivän aiheista nettiraivosta hittibiisin sävellykseen tuntuvat tuoreilta.”

Petteri Kantola: Ajan kanssa – Kesäni Marcel Proustin seurassa

“Petteri Kantolan esikoisteos on kunnianosoitus taiteelle, ajalle ja vapaudelle.

Omasta elämästä vieraantuminen pakottaa ihmisen heijastamaan muistojaan ja kokemuksiaan aikaa vasten; kohtaamaan kivun ja päästämään irti pettymyksistä. Kun Marcel Proustin läsnäolo antaa luvan upota assosiaatioihin ja uniin, ratkaisut alkavat nousta alitajunnasta tietoisuuteen.

“Sen ymmärrän vihdoin, että minun on hyväksyttävä oma tarinani. Se on ratkaisevaa päästäkseni eteenpäin ja lopettaakseni toistuvat ongelmani ja pakenemiseni”.

Kati Kovács: Kamileen labyrintti

“Absurdit skenaariot ja asetelmat ovat Kati Kovácsin tavaramerkki, ja Kamileen labyrintti jatkaa tällä tiellä. Sarjakuvan perusasetelma on erikoinen ja tarinan romanssi-mysteeriä on hauska seurata kuuron protagonistin kautta. Kamileen labyrintti on ajaton, itsenäinen ja uniikki sarjakuva perheestä, rakkaudesta ja kaikesta siltä väliltä.”

Janne Kukkonen: Voro – Kolmen kuninkaan aarre

“Ilmeikkäällä piirrosjäljellä taituroitu koko perheen fantasiaseikkailu tempaa mukaansa ja vie mennessään.

Teoksen kiehtova maailma kasvaa tapahtumien tuiskeessa ja samalla saa jännittää, kuinka pirtsakka Lilja-tyttö pärjää velmujen varkaiden, ilkeiden lääninherrojen ja vihaisten aavesotureiden pyörityksessä.

Sympaattista ja sielukasta sarjakuvaa.”

Hanneriina Moisseinen: Kannas

“Sotasarjakuvia on tehty iät ja ajat, mutta ei aivan tällä tavalla.

Kannas kuvaa sodan kauhun ihmisten kasvojen, tekojen ja tunteiden kautta ilman räjähdyksiä tai tarpeetonta verimässäilyä.

Valokuvat Karjalan evakkojen matkasta välissä juurruttavat lukijan oikeaan mielentilaan, joka muistuttaa näiden tapahtumien historiasta ja raskaudesta yhä tänä päivänä.”

Tommi Musturi: Suurin piirtein Samuel

“Suurin piirtein Samuel on visuaalisen tarinankerronnan juhlaa.

Sanattomassa sarjakuvassa muodot muuttuvat ja toistuvat, kuvat seuraavat toisiaan pidäkkeettömänä virtana; kiertyvät yhteen, sulautuvat keskenään, alkavat ja päättyvät.

Ilmaisuvoimaisista ruuduista kasvaa tyylikäs psykedeelinen tanssi, kokonaisvaltainen kokemus, joka on kuin piirrettyä runoutta.”

Milla Paloniemi: 112 osumaa – Sarjakuvataiteilijan päiväkirja

“Paloniemen teos on koottu taiteilijan sarjakuvablogista, ja teoksesta huokuu avoimuus sekä päiväkirjamaisuus. Episodit vaihtelevat todella rosoisista tunteenpurkauksista harkitumpiin tarinoihin, joissa käsitellään hyvin henkilökohtaisia asioita.

112 osumaa on kaunistelematon ja paikoin viimeistelemätönkin, mutta juuri siksi niin kiinnostava ja koskettava sarjakuva.”

Petteri Tikkanen: Black Peider – ITSE + CD

“Slice of Life -sarjakuva muusikkomies Black Peiderin aivoituksista on oman alagenrensä parasta tuotantoa.

Realismi ja fantasia tarttuvat toisiaan kädestä, ja sekä pienet pätkät että isommat kokonaisuudet supersankaripainijan elämästä maistuvat rehellisiltä.”

Turun Sarjakuvakaupan tammikuun 2017 myydyimmät

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Sokal & Regnauld: Ankardo – Vihreäsilmäinen kuolema (UUSI)

Kun Ankardon vanha ystävä komisario Garenni saa surmansa hämärissä olosuhteissa, vainajan hehkeä poliisitytär Angela värvää Ankardon selvittämään asiaa. Pettämättömällä vainullaan Ankardo saa selville, että Garenni oli hölmöyttään sotkeutunut hämärähommiin.

Muutenkin Belgamburgissa kuohuu: työväenliike nostaa päätään maassa, jossa ei ole työväenluokkaa, maahanmuuttajia virtaa rajan yli ja uhkana on jo sota Belgamburgin ja Vallonian välillä. Poliittinen myllerrys kietoutuu Garennin kohtaloon eriskummallisin tavoin, ja vyyhden ratkaistakseen niin Ankardo kuin Angelakin joutuvat asettumaan tietoisesti hengenvaaraan.

Vihreäsilmäinen kuolema jatkaa edellisen Ankardo­seikkailun Kuolema järvellä jalanjäljissä maahanmuuton, ihmiskaupan ja veroparatiisien aihepiireissä – ankardomaisen humoristisella otteella.

4. Kalkkuna Nro 3 (UUSI)

Kalkkunan kolmosnumeron teemana on rock ’n’ roll-, jenginuoriso- ja muut teinileffat.

Jayne Mansfield – seksipommin villi, villi maailma.
Lihatiski-ekstra – Maila Nurmi eli Vampira.
Gary Holton – cockney-karismaa ja rokkikliseitä.
Johnny Legend – Rockabilly-Rasputin

Leffa-arvioissa Beat Girl, Dragstrip Riot, Lady Grey, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains, The Violent Years, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, I Was a Teenage Frankenstein, Breaking Glass, Kuumat kundit, Topralli, Untamed Youth, Jengi, This Rebel Breed, Date Bait, Hot Rod Girl, Switchblade Sisters, Reform School Girls.
Kirja-arvioissa Vampira: Dark Goddess of Horror.

Toimitus: Matti Saine ja Juha Ruotsalainen.

3. Willy Lambil & Raoul Cauvin: Sinitakit – Nukketeatteri (UUSI)

Valokuvaaja saapuu ikuistamaan urheita sinitakkeja kamerallaan.

Yhdysvaltain sisällissodan aikaan valokuvaus ei ole vielä aivan vaivatonta. Kuvattavien kohteiden on nimittäin pysyttävä paikallaan koko valotuksen ajan, niin ihmisten kuin eläintenkin… tällä kertaa hevosten.

Mutta kuinka hevonen saadaan olemaan aivan hievahtamatta?

Valokuvaajan avustajiksi määrätään korpraali Blutch ja kersantti Chesterfield, ja sotanäyttämö saa uuden, taiteellisemman ilmeen, kun taistelua ryhdytään kuvaamaan ihan käsikirjoituksen mukaan.

2. Karoliina Korhonen: Finnish Nightmares (Edellinen sijoitus: 1)

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….

1. Juuso Laasonen & Toni Karonen: Foederati 1 – Myrskyntuoja (UUSI)

Germania Inferior, Rooman provinssi, kevät 431 jKr.

Kansainvaellusten ravistellessa murenevan Rooman rajoja, frankkien kuningas Clodio Pitkätukka kokoaa joukkojaan hyökätäkseen Galliaan.

Hänen mukanaan kulkee frankkien maineikkain sotaherra, jonka poika tunnetaan nimellä Rocco. Viisikymmentä vuotta myöhemmin häntä puhuteltaisiin Kreivi Roccona, Pohjoisen korppina. Miehenä, joka yhdistäisi frankkien kuningaskunnat huterina heiluvien sormien sijaan yhdeksi rautaiseksi nyrkiksi ja pelastaisi läntisen sivistyksen sen synkinpänä hetkenä.

Ennen tätä kaikkea hän oli kuitenkin vain koston sokaisema poika, joka valmistautui ottamaan ensimmäisen askeleen polulla, jolta ei olisi paluuta…

Ville Makkosen Linnavainio-näyttely Turun Sarjakuvakaupalla helmikuussa, avajaiset la 4.2.2017 klo 16–18.

Linnavainio on populaarikulttuurien tykkien taukoamatonta tykitystä. Zombeja, mecha-asuja, supervoimia, alieneita, supervoimia, sieluja ahmivia bowie-veitsiä ja saunoja täynnään oleva sarjakuva muistetaan lähinnä sukkelasta dialogistaan ja erittäin hyvin kirjoitetusta ihmissuhdedraamasta.

Ville Makkonen on syntynyt Joensuussa vuonna 1983, asunut siellä vuoteen 2004 saakka sekä opiskellut visuaalista viestintää Tuusulassa Pekka Halosen akatemiassa 2004–2005 ja Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulun kuvataiteen koulutusohjelmassa vuosina 2005–2009. Silloin kun hän ei ole luomassa korkeakulttuurista sarjakuvaa, joka rikkoo perinteisen kerronnan rajoja, hän on vannoutunut muusikko. Makkonen onkin julkaissut omakustanteena elektronista rockmusiikkia nimillä Original Heteroes (2011) sekä ZERØES (2014).

Ensimmäinen julkaistu sarjakuvateos Linnavainio ilmestyi syksyllä 2013 (Musta Ritari). Linnavainio 2 ilmestyi syksyllä 2016 samalta kustantajalta. Linnavainio-sarjan tekeminen alkoi vuonna 2011 ja kolmannen eli viimeisen osan olisi määrä ilmestyä 2018–2019.

Dave Sim: Cerebus 3 – Church & State I

Thirty years ago, the idea that a genocidal, absolutist ‘fire and brimstone’ faith-based ideology could actually steamroll its way across national borders, financing itself by looting its own citizenry was considered too far-fetched ‘even for comic books’ so that it could only be addressed in the broad confines of the Ultimate Parody Comic, Dave Sim & Gerhard’s Cerebus.

Says Dave Sim: ‘Sean Robinson and Mara Sedlins of Living the Line continue their astonishing restoration of the World’s Longest Graphic Novel with Church & State I, arguably the most challenging of the 16 books to reproduce accurately, because a good 60 to 80 pages consist of Gerhard drawing for reproduction for the first time, learning what works and what doesn’t work.

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

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

We Told You So: Comics as Art

This is an oral history of Fantagraphics, the iconoclastic independent comic book publisher who reshaped the medium so that cartoonists such as Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, Joe Sacco, and many more could thrive.

In 1976, a group of young men and women coalesced around a fledgling magazine and the idea that comics could be art. In 2016, comics intended for an adult readership are reviewed favorably in the New York Times, enjoy panels devoted to them at Book Expo America, and sell in bookstores comparable to prose efforts of similar weight and intent.

Comics As Art: We Told You So tells of Fantagraphics Books’ key role in helping build and shape an art movement around a discredited, ignored and fading expression of Americana the way insiders share the saga with one another other: in anecdotal form, in the words of the people who lived it and saw it happen. Comics historian and critic Tom Spurgeon and longtime Comics Journal editor Michael Dean assemble an all-star cast of industry figures, critics, cartoonists, art objects, curios, and groundbreaking publications to bring you a detailed account of Fantagraphics’ first 40 years.

Comics as Art is a detailed catalog of the look of a cultural awakening. It’s a story that includes appearances by Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, Harlan Ellison, Jim Shooter, Stan Lee, Dan Clowes, Frank Miller, Peter Bagge, Jaime Hernandez, Gilbert Hernandez, Dave Sim, Steve Geppi, Todd McFarlane and every other major figure in the arts or business end of modern comics. More than a corporate history or a fond look back, Comics As Art: We Told You So makes the warts-and-all case for Fantagraphics Books’ position near the heart of the modern reclamation of the comics art form.

Once a garden-variety rebel without a clue, Reggie Riot found a new lust for life after losing his arm in a severe art attack. Now, with living paint serving as his prosthetic, he’s turning visions into reality as the new leader of a top-secret organization known as the Art Operatives.

This specialized crew of culture warriors has sworn to protect the world’s masterpieces by any means necessary—including pulling them straight through the fourth wall and into full-blooded life.

Reggie and his motley band, however, are only the tattered remains of a much larger force—one led by his high-achieving mother, who disappeared into thin air along with nearly all of her colleagues some months ago.

Enter Danny Doll, Reggie’s long-lost dad and the former head of Art Ops. Doll was the enfant terrible of New York’s Pop Art/Op Art scene—until an unspeakable incident sent him down a darker and more dangerous path. Now Doll has returned, ready to reconnect with his son. But is he moving back towards the light—or preparing to plunge the world into a permanent midnight?

Derf Backderf: Trashed

Every week we pile our garbage on the curb and it disappears—like magic!

The reality is anything but, of course. Trashed, Derf Backderf’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed, award-winning international bestseller My Friend Dahmer, is an ode to the crap job of all crap jobs—garbage collector.

Anyone who has ever been trapped in a soul-sucking gig will relate to this tale. Trashed follows the raucous escapades of three 20-something friends as they clean the streets of pile after pile of stinking garbage, while battling annoying small-town bureaucrats, bizarre townfolk, sweltering summer heat, and frigid winter storms. Trashed is fiction, but is inspired by Derf’s own experiences as a garbage­man. Interspersed are nonfiction pages that detail what our garbage is and where it goes. The answers will stun you.

Hop on the garbage truck named Betty and ride along with Derf on a journey into the vast, secret world of garbage. Trashed is a hilarious, stomach-churning tale that will leave you laughing and wincing in disbelief.

Soon to be a major motion picture from director Bradley Jay Kaplan (Stealing Cars).
