ULKOMAISET UUTUUDET

Lun Zhang & Adrien Gombeaud & Ameziane: Tiananmen 1989 – Our Shattered Hopes

Over 30 years ago, on April 15th 1989, the occupation of Tiananmen Square began.

As tens of thousands of students and concerned Chinese citizens took to the streets demanding political reforms, the fate of China’s communist system was unknown. When reports of soldiers marching into Beijing to suppress the protests reverberated across Western airwaves, the world didn’t know what to expect.

Lun Zhang was just a young sociology teacher then, in charge of management and safety service for the protests.
Now, in this powerful graphic novel, Zhang pairs with French journalist and Asia specialist Adrien Gombeaud, and artist Ameziane, to share his unvarnished memory of this crucial moment in world history for the first time.

Providing comprehensive coverage of the 1989 protests that ended in bloodshed and drew global scrutiny, Zhang includes context for these explosive events, sympathetically depicting a world of discontented, idealistic, activist Chinese youth rarely portrayed in Western media.
Many voices and viewpoints are on display, from Western journalists to Chinese administrators.

Describing how the hope of a generation was shattered when authorities opened fire on protestors and bystanders, Tiananmen 1989 shows the way in which contemporary China shaped itself.

IT’S THE MONSTERS WHO SHOULD BE AFRAID.

When the children of Archer’s Peak–a sleepy town in the heart of America–begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories–impossible details of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.
Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to be the only one who sees what they can see.

Her name is Erica Slaughter.
She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it must be done.

Keum Suk Gendry-Kim: Grass

Grass is a powerful antiwar graphic novel, telling the life story of a Korean girl named Okseon Lee who was forced into sexual slavery for the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second World War–a disputed chapter in twentieth-century Asian history.

Beginning in Lee’s childhood, Grass shows the lead-up to the war from a child’s vulnerable perspective, detailing how one person experienced the Japanese occupation and the widespread suffering it entailed for ordinary Koreans.

Keum Suk Gendry-Kim emphasizes Lee’s strength in overcoming the many forms of adversity she experienced.
Grass is painted in a black ink that flows with lavish details of the beautiful fields and farmland of Korea and uses heavy brushwork on the somber interiors of Lee’s memories.

The cartoonist Gendry-Kim’s interviews with Lee become an integral part of Grass, forming the heart and architecture of this powerful nonfiction graphic novel and offering a holistic view of how Lee’s wartime suffering changed her.
Grass is a landmark graphic novel that makes personal the desperate cost of war and the importance of peace.

Appeared on best of the year lists from The New York Times, The Guardian, and more! Winner of The Cartoonist Studio Prize for Best Print Comic of the Year!

Eleanor Davis: The Hard Tomorrow

Hannah is a thirty-something wife, home-health worker, and antiwar activist.

Her husband, Johnny, is a stay-at-home pothead working–or working–on building them a house before the winter chill sets in.
They’re currently living and screwing in the back of a truck, hoping for a pregnancy, which seems like it will never come.

Legs in the air, for a better chance at conception, Hannah scans fertility Reddits while Johnny dreams about propagating plants–kale, tomatoes–to ensure they have sufficient sustenance should the end times come, which, given their fragile democracy strained under the weight of a carceral state and the risk of horrible war, doesn’t seem so far off.

Helping Hannah in her fight for the future is her best friend Gabby, a queer naturalist she idolizes and who adores her. Helping Johnny build the house is Tyler, an off-the-grid conspiracy theorist driven sick by his own cloudy notions of reality.

Told with tenderness and care in an undefined near future, Eleanor Davis’s The Hard Tomorrow blazes unrestrained, as moments of human connection are doused in fear and threats. Her astute projections probe at current anxieties in a cautionary tale that begs the question: What will happen after tomorrow?

Winner of the LA Times Book Prize for Best Graphic Novel, 30 best of the year and best of the decade nods from The Guardian, Wired, NPR, and more!

Colleen AF Venable & Ellen T. Crenshaw: Kiss Number 8

Mads is pretty happy with her life.

She goes to church with her family, and minor league baseball games with her dad. She goofs off with her best friend Cat, and has thus far managed to avoid getting kissed by Adam, the boy next door.
It’s everything she hoped high school would be… until all of a sudden, it’s not.

Her dad is hiding something big–so big it could tear her family apart. And that’s just the beginning of her problems: Mads is starting to figure out that she doesn’t want to kiss Adam… because the only person she wants to kiss is Cat.

Kiss Number 8, a graphic novel from writer Colleen AF Venable and illustrator Ellen T. Crenshaw, is a layered, funny, sharp-edged story of teen sexuality and family secrets.

Rumi Hara: Nori

A dulcet debut capturing a touching relationship between the spirited Nori and her grandma.

Ignatz nominated and MoCCA Arts Festival Award-winning cartoonist Rumi Hara invites you to visit her magical world.

Nori (short for Noriko) is a spirited three-year-old girl who lives with her parents and grandmother in the suburbs of Osaka during the 1980s.
While both parents work full-time, her grandmother is Nori’s caregiver and companion–forever following after Nori as the three year old dashes off on fantastical adventures.

One day Nori runs off to be met by an army of bats–the symbol of happiness.

Soon after, she is at school chasing a missing rabbit while performing as a moon in the school play, touching on the myth of the Moon Rabbit.
A ditch by the side of the road opens a world of kids, crawfish, and beetles, not to mention the golden frog and albino salamander.

That night, her grandma takes to the Bon Odori festival to dance with her ancestors.
When Nori wins a trip to Hawaii, she finds herself swimming with a sea turtle, though she doesn’t know how to swim.

In mesmerizing short stories of black and white artwork with alternating spot color, Hara draws on East Asian folklore and Japanese culture to create an enchanting milieu that Nori tries to make sense of, wrestling between the reality of what she sees and the legends her grandma shares with her.

Kevin Huizenga: The River at Night

In The River at Night, Kevin Huizenga delves deep into consciousness.

What begins as a simple, distracted conversation between husband and wife, Glenn and Wendy Ganges–him reading a library book and her working on her computer–becomes an exploration of being and the passage of time.

As they head to bed, Wendy exhausted by a fussy editor and Glenn energized by his reading and no small amount of caffeine, the story begins to fracture.

The River at Night flashes back, first to satirize the dot-com boom of the late 1990s and then to examine the camaraderie of playing first-person shooter video games with work colleagues.
Huizenga shifts focus to suggest ways to fall asleep as Glenn ponders what the passage of time feels like to geologists or productivity gurus.

The story explores the simple pleasures of a marriage, like lying awake in bed next to a slumbering lover, along with the less cherished moments of disappointment or inadvertent betrayal of trust.
Huizenga uses the cartoon medium like a symphony, establishing rhythms and introducing themes that he returns to, adding and subtracting events and thoughts, stretching and compressing time.

A walk to the library becomes a meditation on how we understand time, as Huizenga shows the breadth of the comics medium in surprising ways.
The River at Night is a modern formalist masterpiece as empathetic, inventive, and funny as anything ever written.

Weng Pixin: Sweet Time

Vibrant swatches of paint build resonant portraits of heartache, childhood memories, and loneliness.

Sweet Time is an intimate rumination on love, empathy, and confidence.

Singaporean cartoonist Weng Pixin delicately explores strained relationships with a kind of hopefulness while acknowledging their inevitable collapse. Her stories are like a series of snapshots in a photo album or the brightest highlights from an Instagram profile.

Gorgeous image follows gorgeous image in a delicate quest to find connection.

A night out turns into a chance encounter that is at first ecstatic and then quickly descends into awkwardness.

A round of “he loves me, he loves me not” becomes a way of reading every action taken by a distant love interest.

A couple find themselves in an artificially beautiful landscape, but the relationship can’t survive their difference of opinion on the illusion of its beauty.

In Sweet Time, thick and bold strokes of color mingle with delicate lines. Weng combines colorful realism with a gentle wit and introspection, crafting infinitely relatable stories of everyday life and love now.

Yeon-Sik Hong: Umma’s Table

The joy of food and tradition unites a family faltering in the face of illness and loss.

Madang is an artist and new father who moves to a quiet home in the countryside with his wife and young baby, excited to build a new life full of hope and joy, complete with a garden and even snow.

But soon reality sets in and his attention is divided between his growing happy family and his impoverished parents back in Seoul in a dingy basement apartment.
With an ailing mother in and out of the hospital and an alcoholic father, Madang struggles to overcome the exhaustion and frustration of trying to be everything all at once: a good son, devoted father, and loving husband.

To cope, he finds himself reminiscing about their family meals together, particularly his mother’s kimchi, a traditional dish that is prepared by the family and requires months of fermentation.

Memories of his mother’s glorious cooking―so good it would prompt a young Madang and his brother into song―soothe the family.
With her impending death, Madang races to learn her recipes and bring together the three generations at the family table while it’s still possible.

This is a beautiful and thoughtful meditation on how the kitchen and communal cooking―in the past, present, and future―bind a family together amidst the inevitable.

Walter Scott: Wendy, Master of Art

The existential dread of making (or not making) art takes center stage in this trenchant satire of MFA culture.

Wendy is an aspiring contemporary artist whose adventures have taken her to galleries, art openings, and parties in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Toronto.
In Wendy, Master of Art, Walter Scott’s sly wit and social commentary zero in on MFA culture as our hero hunkers down to complete a master of fine arts at the University of Hell in small-town Ontario.

Finally Wendy has space to refine her artistic practice, but in this calm, all of her unresolved insecurities and fears explode at full volume―usually while hungover.

What is the post-Jungian object as symbol? Will she ever understand her course reading―or herself? What if she’s just not smart enough? As she develops as an artist and a person, Wendy also finds herself in a teaching position, mentoring a perpetually sobbing grade-grubbing undergrad.

Scott’s incisively funny take on art school pretensions isn’t the only focus. Wendy, Master of Art explores the politics of open relationships and polyamory, performative activism, the precariousness of a life in the arts, as well as the complexities of gender identity, sex work, drug use, and more.

At its heart, this is a book about the give and take of community―about learning to navigate empathy and boundaries, and to respect herself. It is deeply funny and endlessly relatable as it shows Wendy growing from millennial art party girl to successful artist, friend, teacher―and Master of Art.

Tian Veasna: Year of the Rabbit

Year of the Rabbit tells the true story of one family’s desperate struggle to survive the murderous reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

In 1975, the Khmer Rouge seized power in the capital city of Phnom Penh.
Immediately after declaring victory in the war, they set about evacuating the country’s major cities with the brutal ruthlessness and disregard for humanity that characterized the regime ultimately responsible for the deaths of one million citizens.

Cartoonist Tian Veasna was born just three days after the Khmer Rouge takeover, as his family set forth on the chaotic mass exodus from Phnom Penh.
Year of the Rabbit is based on firsthand accounts, all told from the perspective of his parents and other close relatives.

Stripped of any money or material possessions, Veasna’s family found themselves exiled to the barren countryside along with thousands of others, where food was scarce and brutal violence a constant threat.

Year of the Rabbit shows the reality of life in the work camps, where Veasna’s family bartered for goods, where children were instructed to spy on their parents, and where reading was proof positive of being a class traitor.
Constantly on the edge of annihilation, they realized there was only one choice–they had to escape Cambodia and become refugees.

Veasna has created a harrowing, deeply personal account of one of the twentieth century’s greatest tragedies.

Leslie Stein: I Know You Rider

A candid and philosophical memoir tackling abortion and the complex decision to reproduce.

I Know You Rider is Leslie Stein’s rumination on the many complex questions surrounding the decision to reproduce.

Opening in an abortion clinic, the book accompanies Stein through a year of her life, steeped in emotions she was not quite expecting while also looking far beyond her own experiences.
She visits with a childhood friend who’s just had twins and is trying to raise them as environmentally as possible, chats with another who’s had a vasectomy to spare his wife a lifetime of birth control, and spends Christmas with her own mother, who aches for a grandchild.

Through these melodically rendered conversations with loved ones and strangers, Stein weaves one continuing conversation with herself.
She presents a sometimes sweet, sometimes funny, and always powerfully empathetic account, asking what makes a life meaningful and where we find joy, amid other questions–most of which have no solid answers, much like real life.

Instead of focusing on trauma, I Know You Rider is a story about unpredictability, change, and adaptability, adding a much-needed new perspective to a topic often avoided or discussed through a black-and-white lens.
People are ever changing, contradicting themselves, and having to deal with unforeseen circumstances: Stein holds this human condition with grace and humor, as she embraces the cosmic choreography and keeps walking, open to what life blows her way.

David Rault: ABC of Typography

For the first time, the history of typography is told in comic strip form.

Typography confronts us everywhere: in books and newspapers, on road signs, in product packaging, and on political leaflets.
It is ubiquitous to the point of mundanity.
But while the typeface might be secondary to the message, it remains crucial to the way we respond.

Fonts spark emotions; they evoke eras and ideologies. Some, like Edward Johnson’s for the London Underground, have become iconic. Others, like Comic Sans, are loathed. Each one has its own place in history.

The ABC of Typography traces 3,500 years of type from Sumerian pictographs through Roman calligraphy to Gutenberg, the Bauhaus, and beyond. Brimming with insight and anecdote, this witty and well-informed graphic guide explores the historical, technological, and cultural shifts that have defined the look of the words we read.

ULKOMAISET UUTUUDET

Robert Crumb: R. Crumb Sketchbook 1

It’s the old story.
When TASCHEN released the first limited edition of Crumb Sketchbooks 1982–2011, fans drooled over the gorgeous packaging of this six-volume boxed set, the artist’s thoughtful editing, the hand-written introduction, marbleized page edges, and signed Crumb-colored art print.

Not all, however, could afford the steep price. So they whined and coveted, with the wail growing louder when the second boxed set, 1964–1982, was released the next year.

Covet no more! Robert Crumb. Sketchbook, Vol. 1: June 1964 – Sept. 1968 combines the two earliest volumes from the limited editions, produced directly from the original artworks now belonging to an ardent French collector, into one fat 440-page Crumb feast, selling for an irresistible price.

This book contains hundreds of sketches, including early color drawings from the master of underground comic art, cover roughs for the legendary Zap and Head comics, the original Keep On Truckin’ sketches, the first appearance of Mr. Natural, plus his evolution and refinement, Fritz The Cat, the Old Pooperoo, and many, many voluptuous Crumb girls, all wrapped up in a quality hard cover featuring an illustration newly hand-colored by Crumb himself.

William Gropper: Alay-Oop

A lost, early classic of the graphic novel, now back in print for the first time since 1930.

William Gropper was one of the great American cartoonists and illustrators of the twentieth century.
A student of George Bellows and Robert Henri, he was a prolific newspaper cartoonist, a WPA muralist, a Guggenheim recipient, and committed political activist—the first visual artist called before the House Un-American Activities Committee, after which he was blacklisted (though he got revenge with his pen).

He was also a master of visual storytelling, best seen in his only full-length narrative work, Alay-Oop.
First published in 1930, just as Gropper was coming to the height of his powers, this lost classic of the graphic novel presents an unusual love triangle: two circus acrobats and the honey-tongued schemer who comes between them.
In page after page of charming, wordless art, Gropper takes us from the big top to bustling New York streets, from a cramped tenement apartment to the shifting landscape of a dream, as his characters struggle with the conflicting demands of career, family, and romance. A timeless and surprisingly modern yarn—with backflips aplenty.

This NYRC edition is a hardcover with extra-thick paper and features a brand-new cover design by Sammy Harkham and fully rescanned, edge-to-edge illustrations throughout. Introduction by James Sturm.

Robert Crumb: R. Crumb Sketchbook 2

R. Crumb Sketchbook, Volume 2: Sept. 1968 – Jan. 1975 combines the two middle volumes from the second boxed set, produced directly from the original artworks now belonging to an ardent French collector, into one fat 444-page Crumb feast, at an irresistible price.

This book contains hundreds of sketches from the master of underground comic art, including cover roughs for Zap, Motor City and Despair comics, the introduction of Aline, the first female Yetis, Flakey Foont and Mr. Natural, Honeybunch Kaminski, San Francisco drug culture and big buoyant butts, all wrapped up in a quality hard cover featuring front and back illustrations newly hand-colored by Crumb himself.

Tillie Walden: I Love This Part

Two girls in a small town in the USA kill time together as they try to get through their days at school.

They watch videos, share earbuds as they play each other songs and exchange their stories. In the process they form a deep connection and an unexpected relationship begins to develop.

In her follow up to the critically acclaimed The End of Summer, Tillie Walden tells the story of a small love that can make you feel like the biggest thing around, and how it’s possible to find another person who understands you when you thought no one could.

Robert Crumb: R. Crumb Sketchbook 3

Until May 2017, Robert Crumb was simply lauded as the greatest underground artist.

Then his cover drawing for the 1969 comic Fritz the Cat sold for a record $ 717,000, the highest price ever realized for any comic, and concepts of under- and aboveground went out the window.
Now everything Crumb is fast increasing in value; the perfect time for R. Crumb Sketchbook, Volume 3: Jan. 1975-Dec. 1982.

Combining volumes 5 and 6 from the second R. Crumb Sketchbook boxed set, and produced directly from the original artworks now belonging to an ardent French collector, this is one big 444-page Crumb feast for way less than his rare originals.

Among the hundreds of subjects included are Crumb’s move to rural California, his marriage to Aline Kominsky, the birth of daughter Sophie, as well as further adventures of Mr. Natural, mischievous Snoids, Arcade comics strips, political discontent, existential angst, huge powerful women, geeky little guys, Mao Tse Tung, Mick Jagger and moral outrage, all wrapped up in a quality hard cover featuring front and back illustrations newly hand-colored by Crumb himself.

Tillie Walden: A City Inside

Shifting between the everyday and the surreal, A City Inside recounts one woman’s life from childhood home, to the first love that she will never forget, to the creation of the idea of herself that she can grow old with and the home that she can grow old in.

Walden’s follow up to the lyrical I Love This Part is a poetic exploration of the process of growing older; the journey towards finding out who you are and building a life for yourself.

Bryan Talbot: Luther Arkwright

In a sprawling adult epic of boundless imagination, The Adventures of Luther Arkwright and Heart of Empire now come together in a single paperback edition.

In a swirling multiverse of endless possibilities and incalculable dangers, malign forces manipulate history through countless timelines and act to wreak destruction across universes. But the fate of these infinite existences depends on one man, an anomaly who exists in but a single universe, a being of vast psychic power capable of traveling between realities–Luther Arkwright!

From Bryan Talbot, award-winning graphic-novel pioneer, comes the science-fiction classics that stunned the comics world and set the bar for audacity, ingenuity, and imagination in graphic storytelling.

Stephen Collins: The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil

On the island of Here, livin’s easy.

Conduct is orderly. Lawns are neat. Citizens are clean shaven-and Dave is the most fastidious of them all.
Dave is bald, but for a single hair. He loves drawing, his desk job, and the Bangles. But on one fateful day, his life is upended…by an unstoppable (yet pretty impressive) beard.

An off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, Stephen Collins’ The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is a darkly funny meditation on life, death, and what it means to be different–and a timeless ode to the art of beard maintenance.

Mary M. Talbot & Bryan Talbot: Rain

From acclaimed writer/historian Mary M Talbot and graphic-novel pioneer Bryan Talbot comes Rain, a chronicle of the growing relationship of two young women, one an environmental activist, set against the backdrop of the disastrous 2015 floods in northern England.

The wild Brontë moorlands are being criminally mismanaged as crops are being poisoned, and birds and animals are being slaughtered. While the characters are fictional, the tragedy is shockingly real.

Rain is the fourth graphic-novel collaboration between Mary M Talbot and husband Bryan Talbot, a partnership that has produced the award winning Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes, Sally Heathcote: Suffragette (with Kate Charlesworth), and The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia.

Yukito Kishiro: Battle Angel Alita Deluxe Edition 3

After more than a decade out of print, the original cyberpunk action classic returns in glorious 400-page hardcover deluxe editions, featuring an all-new translation, color pages, and new cover designs!

In a dump in the lawless settlement of Scrapyard, far beneath the mysterious space city of Zalem, disgraced cyber-doctor Daisuke Ido makes a strange find: the detached head of a cyborg woman who has lost all her memories.

He names her Alita and equips her with a powerful new body, the Berserker. While Alita remembers no details of her former life, a moment of desperation reawakens in her nerves the legendary school of martial arts known as Panzer Kunst.

In a place where there is no justice but what people make for themselves, Alita decides to become a hunter-killer, tracking down and taking out those who prey on the weak. But can she hold onto her humanity as she begins to revel in her own bloodlust?

Glen Baxter: Almost Completely Baxter – New and Selected Blurtings

Over four decades and a multitude of books, “Colonel” Glen Baxter has built a world and a language all his own–slightly familiar, decidedly abnormal, irresistibly funny.

Have you felt the terror of a failed Szechuan dinner?
Have you seen what happens at precisely 6:15?
Do you know where the beards are stored? Either way, this is the book for you.

Baxter’s drawings are a delicious stew of pulp adventure novels, highbrow hjinks, and outright absurdity: lonesome cowboys confront the latest in modern art, brave men tremble before moussaka, schoolgirls hoard hashish, and the world’s fruits are in constant peril. Wimples abound.

This new selection of Baxter’s work brings together highlights from the full sweep of his long career, and is sure to enchant both confirmed Baxterians and those iin dire need of an introduction.

This NYRC edition is a hardcover with printed endpapers, debossed cover design, and extra-thick paper.

Katie O’Neill: The Tea Dragon Society

Available for the first time in paperback, The Tea Dragon Society is the two-time Eisner Award-winning gentle fantasy that follows the story of a blacksmith apprentice, and the people she meets as she becomes entwined in the enchanting world of tea dragons.

From the award-winning author of Princess Princess Ever After comes THE TEA DRAGON SOCIETY, the beloved and charming all-ages book that follows the story of Greta, a blacksmith apprentice, and the people she meets as she becomes entwined in the enchanting world of tea dragons.

After discovering a lost tea dragon in the marketplace, Greta learns about the dying art form of tea dragon care-taking from the kind tea shop owners, Hesekiel and Erik. As she befriends them and their shy ward, Minette, Greta sees how the craft enriches their lives–and eventually her own.

Alberto Breccia & Juan Sasturain: Perramus – The City and Oblivion

Fantagraphics collects Perramus for the first time in English.

Created by one of South American’s most acclaimed comics artists, Alberto Breccia, in collaboration with award-winning writer and TV host, Juan Sasturain, this graphic novel is in the satirical vein of Gulliver’s Travels and Dr. Strangelove.

Perramus: The City and Oblivion follows the existential odyssey of a political dissident. When the skull-faced Death Squad comes for him, he flees, voluntarily loses his memory, and takes up the name “Perramus” from the brand of his raincoat.

During his absurdist travels, he teams up with the gruff Cannelloni; a foreign aviator dubbed “The Enemy” by despot Mr. Whitesnow; and the blind author “Borges” (based on the real-life literary figure), who comes to be a guide.
This motley crew journeys to outlandish locales where they encounter a variety of eccentric characters — including a director of trailers for films that will never exist; a guerilla force of circus folk, clowns, and puppeteers; a tin-pot dictator with a vast fortune built on an empire of excrement; and Ronald Reagan.

Fantagraphics’ The Alberto Breccia Library archival series showcases the work of the master. This highly anticipated collection is an act of resistance in and of itself — it was created while Argentina’s military dictatorship was still in power. Perramus is a cartooning tour de force, with a revolutionary message that remains vital to this day.

Marguerite Abouet & Mathieu Sapin: Akissi – More Tales of Mischief

The plucky, troublemaking Akissi is back with her mischief on The Ivory Coast!

This time, she has to keep herself from drowning, stand up to a bully, make peace with her arch nemesis–the prettiest girl in school, and evade a witch doctor’s potion.

Inspired by her childhood on The Ivory Coast, writer Marguerite Abouet takes readers on even more hilarious adventure in Akissi: Volume 2. Lessons learned along the way include being friends with people you don’t like, standing up for yourself, and dealing with the consequences of your actions.

The high spirited and mischievous Akissi returns for more “girls will be girls” adventures on the Ivory Coast in these previously untranslated stories.

Ezra Claytan Daniels: Upgrade Soul

For their 45th anniversary, Hank and Molly Nonnar decide to undergo an experimental rejuvenation procedure, but their hopes for youth are dashed when the couple is faced with the results: severely disfigured yet intellectually and physically superior duplicates of themselves.

Can the original Hank and Molly coexist in the same world as their clones?

In Upgrade Soul, McDuffie Award-winning creator Ezra Claytan Daniels asks probing questions about what shapes our identity – Is it the capability of our minds or the physicality of our bodies? Is a newer, better version of yourself still you?

This page-turning graphic novel follows the lives of Hank and Molly as they discover the harsh truth that only one version of themselves is fated to survive.

Ben Passmore: Your Black Friend

Ben Passmore’s necessary contribution to the dialogue around race in the United States, Your Black Friend is a letter from your black friend to you about race, racism, friendship and alienation.

On the heels of viral online success with 500,000+ views, the revised print edition of the Your Black Friend comic is in gorgeous full color on fancy matte paper stock.

Inspired by Frantz Fanon’s White Skin, Black Masks, Your Black Friend is just as direct, immediate, and necessary as Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me and Claudia Rankine’s Citizen.

Known for his politically charged science fiction comics, enthusiastic fans of Passmore’s work include Brandon Graham (Island, Image Comics), Carolyn Nowak (Lumberjanes) and Josh Simmons (Fantagraphics).

Fabien Vehlmann & Kerascoët: Beautiful Darkness

A group of little people find themselves without a home in this horror fantasy classic.

Newly homeless, a group of fairies find themselves trying to adapt to their new life in the forest.
As they dodge dangers from both without and within, optimistic Aurora steps forward to organize and help build a new community. Slowly, the world around them becomes more treacherous as petty rivalries and factions form.

Beautiful Darkness became a bestseller and an instant classic when it was released in 2014.
This paperback edition of the modern horror classic contains added material, preparatory sketches, and unused art.

While Kerascoët mix gorgeous watercolors and spritely cartoon characters, Fabien Vehlmann takes the story into bleaker territory as the seasons change and the darkness descends. As with any great horror, there are moments of calm and jarring shocks while a looming dread hangs over the forest.

Gerry Duggan & David O’Sullivan: Analog 2

The internet has collapsed and secrets are moved around the world on paper by armed “Ledger Men”.

Hard-drinking human punching bag Jack McGinnis must unravel the mystery of how his nemesis returned to power and survive a burn notice from his old “pals” in the intelligence community.

Starring Oona, Sam, Pops and a bunch of dangerous spies, mercs, hitmen, bartenders — plus a free-range and slightly confused artificial intelligence.

Kerascoët: Paul & Antoinette

We have seen a few great odd couples in picture books already, but filled with possibility as the world is, there’s always room for one more pair, especially if they are as charming and unforgettable as these pigs, born from the brushes and prolific imagination of Kerascoët.

Kerascoët lives and works in Paris in the worlds of cartooning and illustration.

Best known for illustrating the book Miss Don’t Touch Me written by Hubert, as well as a couple of the Lewis Trondheim Dungeon books, their most recent book Beautiful Darkness broke out on the US scene in 2014, winning them wide recognition and high praise. It was a Publishers Weekly best book of the year.

Tom Peyer & Peter Krause: Dragonfly & Dragonflyman 1

On Earth-Omega, the grim vigilante called THE DRAGONFLY seeks justice in a dark world of sadistic criminals and corrupt cops.
But on Earth-Alpha, his innocent counterpart DRAGONFLYMAN faces colorful villains like The Soundmaster alongside a cheerful police department!

This volume careens like a rollercoaster from camp humor to gritty drama and back again, featuring the brutal menace of Kaktus, TWO versions of the tempter known as Devil Man―and the baffling mystery of Lady Dragonflyman!

A prequel to the acclaimed AHOY Comics title THE WRONG EARTH, collecting all five issues of DRAGONFLY AND DRAGONFLYMAN plus the 2019 AHOY Free Comic Book Day story. Featuring covers by WRONG EARTH artist Jamal Igle.

Osamu Tezuka: Buddha 3 – Devadatta

The third volume of this epic graphic novel send Siddhartha further into a world mired in pain and suffering. The journey to peace and enlightenment looms far but bright.

Prince Siddhartha quickly learns that the monk’s path is covered in thorns and self-abuses much more profound than shaving your head.

His new companions Dhepa and Assaji accompany him to plague-ridden town, ruled by the ravashing Visakha. On a different path filled with as many vararies is Devadatta, an orphan who learns only that bad almost always gets worse.

To strange cities, and dire prophecies…

Toukokuun 2020 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Hermann: Bois-Mauryn tornit 2 – Ëloise de Montgri
(Listallepalaaja)

Aseistautunut rosvojoukko ryöstelee rikkaita linnoja kylväen tuhoa ja väkivaltaa.

Yllättäen nälänhädän näännyttämien talonpoikien ja alustalaisten tueksi ilmestyy kesyttömän kaunis ja arvoituksellinen Éloïse de Montgri, joka vaikuttaa olevan täynnä syvää vihaa rosvolauman päällikköä kohtaan.

Poikkeuksellisiin tapahtumiin osallistuu myös kiertelevä ritari Aymar de Bois-Maury, joka tarjoaa rohkeutensa ja viisautensa rosvojen kiusaaman väen palvelukseen…

4. Ulla Donner: Sontaa (Listallepalaaja)

Kaikki ovat ilmastovegaaneja, intersektionaalisia feministejä, poliittisesti valveutuneita aktivisteja, ja tekevät työtä asioiden parissa, joihin todella uskovat.

Vai onko kaikki sittenkin vain samaa vanhaa paskaa uudessa paketissa?

Mainostoimistossa käydään yt-neuvotteluja ja after workissa puretaan tuntoja.
Dream Hackers Disruption Agencyn työkaverukset puhuvat keskenään siitä, miten paljon vapautta heillä oikeastaan on. Ovatko he itse valinneet työnsä ja elämäntapansa? Voivatko he edes vaikuttaa siihen, miltä oma elämä tulevaisuudessa näyttää?

Töissä on käynnissä uuden perunapohjaisen makkaran lanseeraus. Innovatiivisen lihankorvikkeen ongelmana vain on, että perunassa ei ole juurikaan proteiinia. Ratkaisu löytyy, mutta siinä piilee omat vaaransa.

Sontaa kertoo kapitalismista, perunoista ja halusta vetää itsensä alas vessanpöntöstä.

3. Altan: Ada Macaossa (Edellinen sijoitus: 3)

Vuosi 1974 tai oikeastaan vuosi 1963.

Macao, prostituoitujen, vihreiden barettien ja muiden tyyppien sekamelska, maailmanpolitiikan sulatusuuni!

Saigon, JFK, Washington Post – ja Ada!
Toissa vuonna ilmestynyt Ada viidakossa saa jatkoa.

Käännöksen on jälleen tehnyt Heikki Kaukoranta ja kirjan julkaisevat yhteistyössä Asema, Zum Teufel ja Täysi Käsi.

2. Tiitu Takalo: Memento Mori (Edellinen sijoitus: 1)

Suomalaisen sarjakuvan huippuihin kuuluva piirtäjä ja tarinankertoja Tiitu Takalo kertoo koskettavan omakohtaisen tarinan sairastumisesta vakavasti.

Memento mori on Tiitu Takalon yli 200-sivuinen, omaelämäkerrallinen nelivärisarjakuva siitä, miten hän sai täysin odottamatta aivoverenvuodon 38-vuotiaana.

Teos on dramaattinen kertomus ihmisen elämän täydellisestä mullistumisesta yhdessä yössä – sairastumisesta, sairaanhoidosta ja pitkästä toipumisajasta, joka johti sarjakuvataiteilijan pohtimaan laajemminkin elämän tarkoitusta ja omaa paikkaansa maailmassa.

Kaunis ja riipaiseva tarina avautuu Takalon upean maalauksellisina sarjakuvasivuina.

1. Hermann: Bois-Mauryn tornit 3 – Germain (Listallepalaaja)

Aymar de Bois-Maury jakaa tällä kertaa osan taipaleestaan pyhiinvaelluksella olevan pariskunnan kanssa, jonka päämääränä on Santiago de Compostela.

Hänen matkansa rinnalla kulkee toinen, jota kirjovat kulta ja maan tomu, joka on täynnä verta ja kuolemaa.

Varastetut kalleudet johtavat petturuuteen ja kostoon, missä yksilöllä ei ole suurtakaan arvoa…

Huhtikuun 2020 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese – Mysteerien laguunit
(Listallepalaaja)

Mysteerien laguuneissa kuljetaan Orinocon jokisuistosta Venezuelasta Perun kautta Venetsiaan ja Montenegroon. Kaiken takana on muinainen fransiskaanimunkin ihoon piirretty kartta, joka näyttää tien tarunhohtoisiin Cíbolan kultakaupunkeihin.

Laivaton merikapteeni Corto Maltese matkaa kulta­-aarteen jäljillä ja seikkailee sademetsissä, ensimmäisen maailmansodan taisteluissa ja unien ja näkyjen maailmassa.

Suomentajan tarkistama albumi sisältää tarinat Suloisten unten laguuni, Tarinoita ja isoisiä, Itäisen ikkunan enkeli ja Mammonan lipun alla. Mukana on myös Marco Steinerin uudet alkusanat.

Tarinat ilmestyvät nyt ensi kertaa suomeksi nelivärisinä. Alun perin ne on julkaistu ranskaksi vuonna 1971. Suomeksi ne ovat ilmestyneet mustavalkoisina albumeissa Kelttiläistarinoita (1998) ja Banaaniconga (1997).

4. Jean-Yves Ferri & Didier Conrad: Asterix 37 – Kilpa-ajo halki Italian (Edellinen sijoitus: 3)

3. Altan: Ada Macaossa (Edellinen sijoitus: 4)

Vuosi 1974 tai oikeastaan vuosi 1963.

Macao, prostituoitujen, vihreiden barettien ja muiden tyyppien sekamelska, maailmanpolitiikan sulatusuuni!

Saigon, JFK, Washington Post – ja Ada!
Toissa vuonna ilmestynyt Ada viidakossa saa jatkoa.

Käännöksen on jälleen tehnyt Heikki Kaukoranta ja kirjan julkaisevat yhteistyössä Asema, Zum Teufel ja Täysi Käsi.

2. Moa Romanova: Paniikkiprinsessa (Uusi)

Moalla on kriisi.

Hän viruu unettomana ja passiivisena likaisten vaatteiden ja latausjohtojen sekamelskassa ja etsii maanisesti muutosta elämäänsä.
Tinderissä hän tapaa kuuluisan mediapersoonan, viisikymppisen miehen, joka haluaa ryhtyä taiteilijuudesta haaveilevan Moan mesenaatiksi.

Ruotsalaisen Moa Romanovan persoonallinen debyyttialbumi Paniikkiprinsessa on paitsi sarjakuvaromaani myös selviytymistarina.

Teos käsittelee paniikkihäiriötä, päihteitä ja lamauttavaa pelkoa elämän edessä – mutta myös sitä, miten huumorin avulla voi päästä eteenpäin. Kirjasta tuli Ruotsissa jättimenestys.

”Rakastan Moa Romanovan sarjakuvia, olen suuri fani ja valtavan vaikuttunut tästä albumista.” – Liv Strömquist

Antisankaritarinoita aikuisille on seitsemäs ja viimeinen Suomen Kuvalehdessä ilmestyneiden Kramppien & nyrjähdysten kokoelma.

Kuvalehden jaksojen lisäksi kirja sisältää kymmenkunta sivua uusia sarjakuvia.
Tanjan, Riston ja Eliaksen kesäretki sujuu suunnitelmien mukaan eläinpuistossa ja taidemuseossa, kunnes kotimatkalla sekopäinen vauhtihirmu on lopettaa lomailun kuin seinään.

Syksymmällä Tanja ja Risto tajuavat, että heidän esikoisensa on aika polkaista esikouluun. Basisti Kimmo ottaa asiakseen ryhdistäytyä Kadunlakaisijat-yhtyeen rytmiseksi selkärangaksi.
Esko havaitsee, että hänen keskittymiskykynsä on heikentynyt ja korkeanpaikankammonsa voimistunut. Lopulta Esko ja Heidi hyppäävät järveen punaisen kesämökin hämmentyneinä ja velkaisina omistajina.

Helmikuun 2020 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Guido Buzzelli: Trilogia
(Edellinen sijoitus: 1)

Italialainen mestari Guido Buzzelli (1927-1992) loihti teoksissaan unet eläviksi.

Buzzelli kertoi elävänsä toista elämää kuvissaan, ja sijoitti omakuvansa usein mukaan koomisiin sekä painajaismaisiin tarinoihin.

Trilogia sisältää yksissä kansissa kolme sarjakuva-albumia, klassikon aseman saavuttaneita kertomuksia jotka ilmestyvät nyt ensi kertaa kokonaisuudessaan suomeksi.

Kurjien kapina on kuvaus kauniiden ja rumien välisestä kamppailusta ja siitä, kuka lopulta hyötyy jatkuvasta taistelusta.
Labyrintit esittelee suursodan jälkeisen maailman, jossa yksi henkiinjäänyt joutuu avaruusolentojen pelinappulaksi. Hänen kauttaan päätetään pääseekö ihmiskunta jatkoon.
Zil Zelubissa hyvin paljon Buzzellia itseään muistuttava sellonsoittaja kirjaimellisesti repeää liitoksistaan stressin aiheuttamiin paineisiin. Sen jälkeen kaikki käy vieläkin oudommaksi.

4. Jean Giraud: Blueberry – OK Corral/Dust/Apassit (Edellinen sijoitus: 4)

Tämä kirja kokoaa yksiin kansiin kolme viimeistä Blueberry-albumia, joiden tarinoista ja kuvituksesta vastaa Jean “Moebius” Giraud.

Kertomuksissa selviää, millainen on luutnantti Blueberryn lopullinen kohtalo.

Lisäksi kirja sisältää kattavan artikkelin ja runsaasti ennennäkemätöntä kuvitusta.
Aiempia tapahtumia kertaavaa albumia “Apassit” ei ole aiemmin suomeksi julkaistu.

3. Sami Makkonen: Kalevala – Sampo
(Uusi)

Upea ja kouraiseva sarjakuvatulkinta Suomen kansalliseepoksesta jatkuu.

Sami Makkosen Kalevala oli vuoden 2019 sarjakuvatapaus.

Nyt Amerikassa uraa tehnyt taiteilija esittelee väkevän visionsa kansalliseepoksen jälkimmäisestä puoliskosta. Väinämöinen, Lemminkäinen ja muut urhot lähtevät matkaan kohti Pohjolaa ryöstääkseen Sammon, mutta perillä heitä odottaa Pohjolan emäntä kauheine voimineen.

Salaperäinen nuori tyttö saapuu Asterixin rauhalliseen kotikylään kahden arvernipäällikön saattamana.

Caesarin roomalaiset joukot etsivät tyttöä, eikä ihme: kylässä kuiskaillaan, että tämän isä olisi itse suuri Vercingetorix, jonka roomalaiset voittivat kaksi vuotta sitten Alesiassa.

1. Altan: Ada Macaossa (Uusi)

Vuosi 1974 tai oikeastaan vuosi 1963.

Macao, prostituoitujen, vihreiden barettien ja muiden tyyppien sekamelska, maailmanpolitiikan sulatusuuni!

Saigon, JFK, Washington Post – ja Ada!
Toissa vuonna ilmestynyt Ada viidakossa saa jatkoa.

Käännöksen on jälleen tehnyt Heikki Kaukoranta ja kirjan julkaisevat yhteistyössä Asema, Zum Teufel ja Täysi Käsi.
