Syyskuun 2020 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Hermann: Bois-Mauryn tornit 4 – Reinhardt (Edellinen sijoitus: 3)

Aymar de Bois-Mauryn ja Olivierin matka jatkuu Santiago de Compostelasta pohjoiseen.

Matkalla he näkevät ruton seuraukset. Mutta tauti ei ole ainoa uhreja vaativa vitsaus.
Kuolema korjaa satoa myös perimyskiistassa, jossa juonitaan Reinhard von Kirstenin pään menoksi. Salajuonen koukeroiden seurauksena sankarimme joutuvat vuorille ja taistelemaan hengestään kylmyyttä ja ankaria olosuhteita vastaan.
Löytyykö reitti vuorten toiselle puolelle ajoissa?

4. Tuomas Myllylä: Leatherbound Classics (+ condom)(Edellinen sijoitus: 2)

Fantastic flesh art for pain and pleasure!

The artwork and comics in this book are, to put it bluntly, porn.

Made for those who like to fantasize being either the victim or the abuser in a game that both participants play willingly.

.

3. Roger Leloup: Yoko Tsuno 23 – Haukkoja ja enkeleitä (Uusi)

Roger Leloup tekee tieteisviihdettä aikuiseen ja teknisiä vimpaimia arvostavaan makuun.

Tässä tuoreessa albumissa Yoko Tsuno tovereineen seikkailee Skotlannin jylhissä maisemissa.
Luvassa on sarjakuvataiteen juhlaa eritoten lentokoneiden ystäville, mutta esimerkiksi höyryveturien tai klassikkoautojen arvostajia ei todellakaan unohdeta. Mausteena on myös aikamatkustusta.

2. Tiitu Takalo: Memento Mori (Edellinen sijoitus: 5)

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. Jyrki Nissinen: Borgtron #20 (Uusi)

Borgtron ja Marjatta ovat salaa muuttaneet hylätyksi tulkitsemansa grillikioskin kellariin.

Marjatta yrittää keksiä keinon saada henkinen yliote paikan virallisesta omistajasta tohtori Ahlqvista ja täten kaapata grillin kellarin herruus lopullisesti itselleen.
Mitä voidaan kontrolloida, sitä kontrolloidaan… ja nyt sitä kontrolloidaan…

Mukana myös “mangaa”!

Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernández: The Old Guard 2 – Force Multiplied

Sixty-seven hundred year old Andromache “Andy” the Scythian, Nicolo “Nicky” of Genoa, Yufus “Joe” al-Kaysani, and newbie immortal Nile Freeman return to the good fight in the acclaimed miniseries by New York Times bestselling creators GREG RUCKA & LEANDRO FERNÁNDEZ…now a major motion picture!

When you’ve waged war as long as Andy and her squad, you’ve gotten your hands more than bloody.
Now, the day has come to confront the sins of the past.

But as Nile struggles to make peace with the team, the last person Andy expected to ever see again returns to challenge not only what Andy believes in, but what the team is willing to fight for.

Shuzo Oshimi: The Flowers of Evil – Complete 1

The first combined edition of The Flowers of Evil features volumes 1-3 of this best-selling and acclaimed series.

It follows the adventures of a lonely bookish teen struggling to find his identity through Baudelaire’s poetry, until two girls–a beauty and a bully–help him find true love and friendship.

Edgy, intense, and romantic, this new edition will give fans a chance to reconnect with Kasuga, Saeki, and Nakamura as it explores the issues of bullying, loneliness, individuality, and identity.

“It is often darkly funny, with Oshimi delivering what would be ‘jokes’ in other manga with a straightforward sincerity that may or may not be deadpan. It’s an uncomfortable funny, akin to the funny parts in, say, David Lynch movies.”
-Every Day Is Like Wednesday –

Kelly Thompson: Hawkeye – Private Eye

Remember Hawkeye?

No, not that Hawkeye – your favorite Hawkeye!
The former Young Avenger, the butt-kicking hero who had to save that other Hawkguy all the time and basically keep his life in some semblance of order.
Yup, you know her, it’s the dazzling Kate Bishop – making her solo comics debut!

Joe Casey & Benjamin Marra: Jesusfreak

The year is 26 C.E.

A young Nazarean carpenter is having some trouble adjusting to the violent world around him — and finding his place within it. He knows he’s different… he just doesn’t know why. Not yet, anyway.

A bloody, two-fisted tale of historical heroic fiction brought to you by JOE CASEY (SEX, ANNUAL, MCMLXXV) and BENJAMIN MARRA (Night Business, Terror Assaulter O.M.W.A.T.).

Gigi D.G. & Paulina Ganucheau: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power 1 – The Legend of the Fire Princess

Don’t miss the first epic She-Ra and the Princesses of Power graphic novel, based on stories by showrunner Noelle Stevenson!

Even after everything that’s happened, the world outside the Horde’s walls is still a strange one to Adora.
Each day she’s learning more about her growing powers as She-Ra, including something new: the ability to heal corrupted runestones.

Runestones are the magical source from which princesses like Frosta, Mermista, and Perfuma draw their power, but Glimmer knows of another runestone — one with a dark past.
Long ago a fire princess ruled the lands to the west, until her thirst for power corrupted her, and led to the ruin of her kingdom.
Glimmer thinks the lost fire runestone could give the Rebellion an edge in the fight against the Horde, but claiming this ancient power won’t be easy… especially not when the Horde has their eyes set on the same prize.

Alison Bechdel: The Essential Dykes to Watch Out for

Settle in to this wittily illustrated soap opera (Bechdel calls it “half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel”) of the lives, loves, and politics of Mo, Lois, Sydney, Sparrow, Ginger, Stuart, Clarice, and the rest of the cast of cult-fav characters.

Most of them are lesbians, living in a midsize American city that may or may not be Minneapolis. Bechdel’s brilliantly imagined countercultural band of friends—academics, social workers, bookstore clerks—fall in and out of love, negotiate friendships, raise children, switch careers, and cope with aging parents.
Bechdel fuses high and low culture—from foreign policy to domestic routine, hot sex to postmodern theory—in a serial graphic narrative “suitable for humanists of all persuasions.”

John Wagner & Garth Ennis: Essential Judge Dredd – America

The first volume of Essential Judge Dredd, a curated line of graphic novels showcasing the very best storylines of all time and presented in a fresh new package.

In Mega-City One, the Judges are the law – acting as judge, jury, and executioner.
But how do the citizens really feel about a system where they are powerless?

America Jara and Bennett Beeny grow up as best friends, living a fairly trouble-free life in a dangerous city… bar the odd, negative encounter with a Judge.
Time draws them apart, and when they are brought back together, Beeny is a successful singer and America has become involved with a terrorist organisation known as Total War, which has the Justice Department in its sights!

This dark and complex tale, considered to be one of the best stories to ever come out of the Judge Dredd universe, has been contextualised with contemporarily thematic stories with re-coloured art by Watchmen’s John Higgins.

Shuzo Oshimi: Blood on the Tracks 2

From the creator who brought you notable works such as The Flowers of Evil, Happiness, and Inside Mari, comes a new suspense drama centering on the theme of a toxic parent. Dive into this latest thriller by master storyteller, Shuzo Oshimi.

But before he can even catch his breath, what remains of his sense of self is smashed to pieces by her next shocking act…

Shuzo Oshimi (The Flowers of Evil) invites us to watch as a once-happy household quietly transforms into an inescapable living hell.

Gilbert Hernandez: The Troublemakers

A drug dealer, a rock ‘n’ roll loser, an uber-stacked vixen, and a wily grifter: these greedy low-lifes are chasing the hard luck charm! Beto’s follow-up to Chance in Hell is a lurid, hard-boiled, pulpy delight!

Dig this scene!
Low-life drug dealer Dewey Booth has $200,000 that even-lower-lifes want. BLING!
Wes is a rock and roll loser that only wants to buy a club where nobody can tell him he can’t sing or perform. WAILIN’!
He’s known Dewey for years, but that isn’t enough to get his dough. Wes needs help. Nala is an uber-stacked bombshell whose pleasure in life is to seduce and then humiliate men dumb enough to fall for her. HUSH HUSH!
For half the dough, she agrees to help Wes get Dewey’s ill-gotten goods. Things don’t go so well when a wily grifter from Wes’s past shows up to complicate things. GULP!
Vincene is another troublemaker who enjoys wrecking people’s plans and wants the Dewey dough, too. In the end, deadly fires ignite, heads literally roll, eyes are shot out — and all Wes wants to do is sing in a rock and roll club.

The Troublemakers is the second volume in a series of original graphic novels in which Gilbert Hernandez creates comics adaptations of movies starring or co-starring Luba’s half-sister Rosalba “Fritz” Martinez from Love and Rockets.
The first, the dystopian Chance in Hell (in which Fritz has only a bit part), was released in 2007. This hard boiled, pulp graphic novel will delight longtime Hernandez fans as well as provide a perfect introduction to newcomers to Hernandez’s work.

ENNAKKOTILAUKSET

Stan Sakai: Usagi Yojimbo 1 – Samurai (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

Usagi Yojimbon saaga sijoittuu 1600-luvun vaihteen Japaniin.

Sisällissotien aika on hädin tuskin päättynyt ja Shogun on juuri tullut valtaan.
Bushidoa eli Soturin kunniakoodia seuraavat samurait ovat hallitseva luokka koko maassa. On levottomuuksien hillinnän ja poliittisen juonittelun aika.

Pitkin valtakuntaa vaeltaa isännätön samurai nimeltään Miyamoto Usagi.

”Kun hän (Sakai) kehittää ja ratkaisee kohtauksen kahdessa tai kolmessa ruudussa, hänellä on ohjaajan tietoisuus elokuvallisista tekniikoista.
Hänen piirroksensa asusteisiin ja taustoihin on virheetöntä ja hänen tarinansa – ah, hänen tarinansa! – ovat kuin tuulahdus raitista ilmaa.
Ne ovat auttaneet minua moneen otteeseen selviämään tässä katkerassa ja uuvuttavassa nykyajassa.”
– Alejandro Jodorowsky –

Tuomas Myllylä: Jumalsurma – Ensimmäinen kirja (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

Kauan sitten berserkki Hrotgar teki anteeksiantamattoman synnin: lopettaakseen tuhoisan sodan hän surmasi jumalan, johon oli valalla sitonut itsensä.

Kun kaukaa etelästä saapuneet valloittajat asettuivat pohjolaan, Hrotgar itse vetäytyi kauas peikkomaille, sivilisaation ulottumattomiin.
Mutta teoilla on seurauksensa, ja joitain velkoja ei voi sovittaa kuin verellä.

Kun pohjolan jumalat puhaltelevat liekkiin uutta sotaa, vanha berserkki joutuu vielä kerran tarttumaan kirveeseensä päättääkseen verikoston ja tuhon kierteen: hän aikoo tappaa kaikki jumalat.

Alejandro Jodorowsky: The Dance of Reality – A Psychomagical Autobiography

Retracing the spiritual and mystical path he has followed since childhood, Alejandro Jodorowsky re-creates the incredible adventure of his life as an artist, filmmaker, writer, and therapist–all stages on his quest to push back the boundaries of both imagination and reason.

Not a traditional autobiography composed of a chronological recounting of memories, The Dance of Reality repaints events from Jodorowsky’s life from the perspective of an unleashed imagination.
Like the psychomagic and metagenealogy therapies he created, this autobiography exposes the mythic models and family templates upon which the events of everyday life are founded.
It reveals the development of Jodorowsky’s realization that all problems are rooted in the family tree and explains, through vivid examples from his own life, particularly interactions with his father and mother, how the individual’s road to true fulfillment means casting off the phantoms projected by parents on their children.

The Dance of Reality is autobiography as an act of healing.
Through the retelling of his own life, the author shows we do not start off with our own personalities, they are given to us by one or more members of our family tree.
To be born into a family, Jodorowsky says, is to be possessed. To peer back into our past is equivalent to digging into our own souls.
If we can dig deep enough, beyond familial projections, we shall find an inner light–a light that can help us through life’s most difficult tests.

Offering a glimpse into the mind and life of one of the most creative and enigmatic visionaries of our time, The Dance of Reality is the book upon which Jodorowsky’s critically acclaimed 2013 Cannes Film Festival film of the same name was based.

Dan Slott & Ryan Sook: Arkham Asylum – Living Hell (K)

KÄYTETTY.

From one of the comics business’ brightest new creative teams comes a Batman tale with a twist – a giant, gut-wrenching, soul-crushing twist!

Arkham Asylum: Batman’s dustbin where he dumps the worst of the garbage. A melting pot brimming with the curdled milk of human madness, where the warders are as ensnared by the insanity as the inmates. And where a killer has tapped into all that maniacal energy and is channelling it to his own demonic ends!

With cameos from Batman, Batgirl and a dark host of famous – and notorious – super villains, including the Joker and Two-Face, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell is living proof of the old adage – you don’t have to be mad to work here, but it helps!

Dan Jurgens & Patrick Zircher: Superman Action Comics 1 – Path of Doom (K)

KÄYTETTY.

He was the world’s greatest hero. Then the world he knew was wiped from existence.

Escaping with his wife and son, Superman fled to a strange new version of Earth. There he worked in the shadows and watched as a different Superman—younger, less experienced, but every bit as heroic—defended his planet.

That young hero died, and now the original Man of Steel is ready to step forward and replace him.

But he’s not ready for what comes next.

Seizing the opportunity of a lifetime, Lex Luthor has donned a battle suit of incredible power and declared himself to be the new Superman. What’s more, someone else claiming to be Clark Kent has also appeared in Metropolis. And then, into the middle of this chaos, lands the greatest foe Superman has ever faced: Doomsday.

To save Metropolis and his family from this monstrous menace, Superman must join forces with Luthor, Wonder Woman and any other ally or enemy he can—because he knows from bitter experience where the path of Doom inevitably leads.

Brian Azzarello & Lee Bermejo: Lex Luthor – Man of Steel (K)

KÄYTETTY.

Superman has been called many things since he first appeared in the skies above Metropolis: the Man of Steel, the World’s Greatest Hero–even the Big Blue Boy Scout. Now his oldest and most implacable foe has given him a new title: Humanity’s Greatest Threat.

In this compelling study of the ultimate clash of wills, the New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning team of writer Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermejo (Batman: Damned, Joker) opens the mind of Lex Luthor to reveal the true motivations behind his legendary animosity toward the Last Son of Krypton–as well as his ultimate plan to defeat his invulnerable adversary.

Karen Traviss & Steven Kurth: The Fall of G.I. JOE (K)

KÄYTETTY.

When villains have become the new heroes, to what lengths must the former heroes go to save a world that doesn’t even want their help?

Does the world really need G.I. JOE?
Their greatest enemy, Cobra, has become an international peacekeeping force…and the future of America’s ultimate fighting team looks bleak. Scarlett leads what’s left of the JOEs–but will she be able to keep them together?

Meanwhile, former JOE Duke searches for answers in a world turned upside down. The darkest chapter in G.I. JOE history unfolds as real-world action and politics collide, and nothing will ever be the same!

Collects the complete G.I. JOE Volume 4 issues #1-8.

Jason Aaron & Al Ewing: Original Sin: Thor & Loki – The Tenth Realm (K)

KÄYTETTY.

Thanks to the events of Original Sin, the deepest secret of the Nine Realms has been revealed: namely, the existence of a Tenth Realm!

Now, Thor and Loki must embark on a quest to discover this strange new world – and to discover the sister that Thor never knew he had: Angela!
But can Loki be trusted?
And will brother and sister murder each other before the truth comes out?

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Sebastian Fiumara: Thor – The Trials of Loki (K)

KÄYTETTY.

“The gods fall, you ascend.”
These simple words – whispered by the Norn Witches into the ear of Loki, the Norse trickster god – would set the world aflame!

Loki has always been the consummate outsider, not as beautiful or favored as the other Asgardians. But did it have to be that way? Is Loki evil by choice – or by destiny?

Find out as he undergoes his most wrenching ordeals – with epic results.
Will Loki kill Balder, the Asgardian God of Light, in fulfillment of the Norn Witches’ prophecy?
Will he dare tempt the power of Thor, God of Thunder?
And will he bring about Ragnarok, the dreaded Twilight of the Gods, in a quest for power?

Loki is capable of great evil. Can even fabled Asgard prevail against his treachery – and his destiny?

Warren Ellis & John Cassaday: The Planetary Omnibus (K)

KÄYTETTY. ETUKANNEN KULMA SAANUT HIEMAN OSUMAA.

Planetary has been hailed as a timeless story that turned modern superhero conventions on their heads.

Written by Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan) and with stunning art by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men), this critically acclaimed, landmark series took a look at the inter-dimensional peace-keeping force known as Planetary.

The trio on the ground includes Elijah Snow, a hundred-year-old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines.
Tasked with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters.

All 27 issues of the original series are collected in this hardbound omnibus edition.

Heinäkuun 2020 myydyimmät sarjakuvat

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Ferri & Conrad: Asterix 38 – Vercingetorixin tytär (Listallepalaaja)

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.

.

4. Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese – Kelttiläistarinoita (Listallepalaaja)

Kelttiläistarinoissa laivaton merikapteeni Corto Maltese seikkailee ensimmäisen maailmansodan aikaisessa Euroopassa – kelttiläisten myyttien, Irlannin Sinn Féinin ja Shakespearen unen, tarun ja historian maailmassa.

Corto ilmaantuu jonnekin, katselee ympärilleen, tapaa ystäviä, kärjistää pelkällä olemassaolollaan tapahtumien kulkua ja palaa takaisin… eikä mikään ole entisellään.

Suomentajan tarkistama albumi sisältää tarinat O-mollikonsertto harpulle ja nitroglyseriinille, Talviaamun unelma, Vuosikertaviiniä ja Picardien ruusuja sekä Burleski Zuydcooten ja Bray-Dunesin välillä. Mukana on myös Marco Steinerin uudet alkusanat.

Tarinat ilmestyvät nyt ensi kertaa suomeksi nelivärisinä. Alun perin ne on julkaistu ranskaksi vuosina 1971 ja 1972.
Suomeksi ne ovat ilmestyneet mustavalkoisina vuonna 1998 suomennetussa Kelttiläistarinoita-albumissa.

3. Karoliina Korhonen: Finnish Nightmares (Listallepalaaja)

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. 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..

1. Hermann: Bois-Mauryn tornit 4 – Reinhardt (Uusi)

Aymar de Bois-Mauryn ja Olivierin matka jatkuu Santiago de Compostelasta pohjoiseen.

Matkalla he näkevät ruton seuraukset. Mutta tauti ei ole ainoa uhreja vaativa vitsaus.
Kuolema korjaa satoa myös perimyskiistassa, jossa juonitaan Reinhard von Kirstenin pään menoksi. Salajuonen koukeroiden seurauksena sankarimme joutuvat vuorille ja taistelemaan hengestään kylmyyttä ja ankaria olosuhteita vastaan.
Löytyykö reitti vuorten toiselle puolelle ajoissa?

Sarjakuvat ovat käänteisessä järjestyksessä eli myydyin sarjakuva on viimeisenä.

5. Tiitu Takalo: Memento Mori (Listallepalaaja)

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.

4. Juba: Hurja-Hilda (Uusi)

“Älä koskaan aliarvioi napanuoran tappovoimaa…”

Hurja-Hilda on lujatahtoinen villin lännen nainen, jota on kohdeltu kaltoin.

Hilda janoaa kostoa, eikä hän aio jättää kostamista herran haltuun – herra kun on niin hidas vetämään.

.

3. Hermann: Bois-Mauryn tornit 4 – Reinhardt (Edellinen sijoitus: 1)

Aymar de Bois-Mauryn ja Olivierin matka jatkuu Santiago de Compostelasta pohjoiseen.

Matkalla he näkevät ruton seuraukset. Mutta tauti ei ole ainoa uhreja vaativa vitsaus.
Kuolema korjaa satoa myös perimyskiistassa, jossa juonitaan Reinhard von Kirstenin pään menoksi. Salajuonen koukeroiden seurauksena sankarimme joutuvat vuorille ja taistelemaan hengestään kylmyyttä ja ankaria olosuhteita vastaan.
Löytyykö reitti vuorten toiselle puolelle ajoissa?

2. Tuomas Myllylä: Leatherbound Classics (+ condom)(Uusi)

Fantastic flesh art for pain and pleasure!

The artwork and comics in this book are, to put it bluntly, porn.

Made for those who like to fantasize being either the victim or the abuser in a game that both participants play willingly.

.

1. Simon Hanselmann: Seeds and Stems (Uusi)

A spectacular omnibus of never-before-collected Megg, Mogg & Owl shorts, and more!

Simon Hanselmann has established himself as one of the first rank storytellers of our time with his four graphic novels about the funny and poignant lives of roommates Megg, Mogg and Owl — stories which combine raunchy stoner comedy with exceptional pathos and insight into the human condition.

Seeds and Stems collects all of Hanselmann’s work that never made it into his bestselling books — rare and often experimental Megg and Mogg adventures originally published in self-published, limited-edition zines produced between 2016–2019, along with a generous smattering of rarities from various anthologies and magazines. This collection is designed and curated entirely by the artist.

To capture the authentically seedy look of a prescription bottle, Hanselmann’s hand-painted cover is wrapped in a transparent orange acetate jacket.

2. Jason Lutes: Berliini 3 – Kuohuva kaupunki (Uusi)

Mestarillinen Berliini-trilogia päättyy eeppisen komeasti.

Natsismin nousua kuvaavan suurteoksen viimeisessä osassa Hitler saapuu Berliiniin. Toimittaja Kurt Severing ja taiteilija Marthe Müller seuraavat kauhuissaan, kun yhteiskunta heidän ympärillään murenee ja fasismi ottaa vallan.

1. Matti Nieminen & Anssi Rauhala: Väinö I – Suomen kuningas (Uusi)

Vuosi 1918 oli rauhaton koko Euroopassa.

Myös Suomessa mylläsivät poliittiset ristiriidat, itsenäisyysjulistusta oli seurannut tuhoisa sisällissota.

Tietyissä piireissä heräsi ajatus tehdä Suomesta kuningaskunta, luoda kansalle johtajahahmo joka palauttaisi maan raiteilleen.

Hessenin prinssi Friedrich Karl sai hämmentävän sähkeen. Hänelle tarjottiin kuninkaan virkaa lähes tuntemattomassa maassa. Karleilla oli läheiset välit Saksan johtoon, olihan hän naimisissa Margarethen, keisari Vilhelm II:n sisaren kanssa. Myönteinen päätös ottaa kuninkuus vastaan syntyi nopeasti, mutta sitten… Suomi ei saanut kuningasta, kuten tiedetään.
Vähemmän on puhuttu siitä, mitä tapahtui kulisseissa, mitä Friedrich itse ajatteli lyhyen mutta kiihkeän ja arvaamattoman arvonnousunsa aikana?
Tästä kertoo Rauhalan ja Niemisen sarjakuvateos Väinö 1 – Suomen kuningas.

KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Francois Walthéry: Natasha 3 – Cherchemidin vyö

VARASTOLÖYTÖ.

Nataša on kuvankaunis ranskalainen lentoemäntä, joka valloitti lukijansa jo aikoinaan esiintyessään Ruutu- ja Non Stop -sarjakuvalehdissä.

Tässä albumissa Nataša ja stuertti Walter päättävät viettää rauhallisen loman Etelä-Ranskassa, mutta he törmäävätkin tohtori Cherchemidiin, joka on kehittänyt mullistavan keksinnön.
Cherchemidin vyö suojelee kantajaansa kaikelta ulkoiselta uhalta, mikä herättää välittömästi rikollisten piirien kiinnostuksen.
Nataša ja Walter yrittävät pelastaa omaperäisen Cherchemidin armottomilta kidnappaajiltaan, ja matkan varrella niin Marseillen kuin Pyreneidenkin maisemat joutuvat todistamaan henkeäsalpaavaa seikkailua…

Pahkasika 12 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 12, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1982.

Pahkasika numeron 12 sivuilla ovat koolla jo lähes kaikki Pahkasian keskeisimmät kirjoittajat ja piirtäjät. Kiirehtipä lehden päätoimittaja heti tuoreeltaan julistamaan numeron siihenastisista parhaaksi.

Pahkasian 12. numerossa alkaa huippusuosittu käytännön piloja -sarja. Ensimmäisenä ovat käsittelyssä käytännön pilat liikenteessä.
Vanhat herrat ovat taistelulentäjiä vanhojen Korkkareiden henkessä.
Hiljennymme myös ikuisuuskysymyksen äärellä: onko luontoon menemistä?
Tässä numerossa on myös ensimmäinen Pahkasika-News-palsta.

Ensimmäinen Pahkasika ilmestyi vuonna 1975. Kaikkiaan Pahkasikoja on ilmestynyt 79 numeroa. Lähes kaikki on myyty jo loppuun – osa jo vuosikymmenet sitten.

Kaikista Pahkasian numeroista julkaistaan uudet painokset. Remasteroidut sivut, parannettu painojälki, täydelliset versiot. Rajoitettu painos.

Pahkis 12:n kannessa on 1930-luvun henkeen sovitettu muotokuva Lea Liidosta. Sisäsivulla on aukeaman juttu nuoren neitokaisen viimeisestä lennosta. Tämä artikkeli oli ensimmäinen – ja ilmeisesti ainoa – kerta, jolloin Pahkasika julkaisi jutun, jonka tarkoitus oli olla surullinen.

Pahkasika 13 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 13, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasika numero 13 on todellinen tee-se-itse-väen unelmapakkaus. Albumin sivuilla neuvotaan, miten tavallisesta Hooverin pölynimurista saa värkättyä atomipommin, kuinka wc-pöntöstä tulee näppärä pikkupyykkäri ja miten vaativatkin lääketieteelliset toimenpiteet – mukaan lukien lobotomialeikkaukset – voi suorittaa itse Pahkasian korilääkärioppaan avulla.

Maailma on muuttunut paljon vuosikymmenien saatossa. Esimerkiksi artikkelissa Merkillisiä kivipatsaita kerrotaan tutkimusmatkailija Thor Heyerdahlin löytämästä Ahvenanmeren pienestä saaresta, johon on pystytetty useita yli kymmenmetrisiä Kekkosen kivipäitä, jotka kaikki katsovat itään. Nuoremmalle väelle tämä vitsi tuskin aukeaa, mutta yli 40-vuotiaille artikkeli on edelleen ruutia.

Numerossa 13 on myös legendaarinen Kansatiede-artikkeli, jossa professori Pietro-Oldemar Veturi käsittelee etnologiaa. Teksti on hauska sinältäänkin, mutta jos lukija on tarpeeksi iäkäs tietääkseen, mikä oli Pikkujättiläinen, paikat alkavat ratkeilla…

Vanhojen herrojen ensimmäinen pitkä sarjakuvaseikkailu Vanhojen herrojen poika puhuttelee kaikenikäisiä. Samoin vaikkapa Jurpon ja Pahkeisen varhaiset stripit. Muita klassikoita: Market-sarjakuva, Käytännön piloja rakkauselämässä ja Hämmelmäen hautalöytö.

Albumin kannessa esitellään maailman koko historia 210 kuvan pikakelauksena. Ajattele, mikä ajansäästö lukion laajempaan historiankurssiin verrattuna!

Pahkasika 14 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 14, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasian numerossa neljätoista on jo mukana joukko lehden tunnetuimpia vakiopalstoja, -juttuja ja -sarjakuvia. Mm: Vanhat herrat, Jurpo, käytännön pilat, Pahkasika News, leperrykset ja pahkamyyntiluettelot.

Numeron 14 kansikuvassa on otos eteläamerikkaiselta sokeriruokoviljelmältä. Albumi onkin nimetty suureksi Havanna-numeroksi – vaikka Havasta ei muuten ole koko niteessä sanaakaan.

Tämän albumin kolme Pahkis-fanien eniten muistelemaa juttua ovat: Miten hämäät tv-lupatarkastajaa, Vandaalikoulu ja Käytännön liimapilat.

Pahkasika 15 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 15, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasian 15. numero on todellinen tee-se-itse-alan toivepakkaus.
Pahkis neuvoo, miten aivan tavallisesta pahvilaatikosta voi konstruoida atomisuojan. Käsistään kätevä saa neuvot miten rakentaa toimiva sielu.
Lisäksi saamme tietää, keitä ovat ne ammattimiehet, jotka ovat valmistaneet kaikki baarien heiluvat pöydät, vaatekauppojen sovituskoppien liian kapeat oviverhot ja yleisten käymälöiden toimimattomat lukot.

Numeron 15 kansikuvassa näemme jotakin, mikä jakaa kansakunnan kahteen osaan: Vanhempi väki tunnistaa kannessa olevat kuvat oitis. Nuoremmille ne eivät merkitse mitään. Kyse on purukumipakkauksien mukana tulleista keräilykuvista, jotka olivat huippusuosittuja 1960-luvulla.

Tämän albumin kolme Pahkis-fanien eniten muistelemaa juttua ovat: Vanhojen herrojen kissa, Tee-se-itse atomisuoja ja Kaikki irti vahinkosattumuksista.

Johnny Gruelle: Mr. Twee Deedle – Raggedy Ann’s Sprightly Cousin

A spectacular re-presentation of a lost classic.

The second Marschall Books collection from Fantagraphics is a magnificent collection of Mr. Twee Deedle, Johnny Gruelle’s masterpiece, unjustly forgotten by history and never before reprinted since its first appearance in America’s newspapers from 1911 to 1914.

The title character in the Sunday color page, Mr. Twee Deedle, is a magical wood sprite who befriends the strip’s two human children, Dickie and Dolly.
Gruelle depicted a charming, fantastical child’s world, filled with light whimsy and outlandish surrealism. The artwork is among the most stunning ever to grace an American newspaper page, and Gruelle’s painterly color makes every page look like it was created on a canvas.

Gruelle’s creation was the winning entry out of 1500 submissions to succeed Little Nemo, which the New York Herald was losing at the time to the rival Hearst papers.
With such import, the Herald added a $2000 prize, a long contract, and arguably the most care devoted to the reproduction of any color newspaper comic strip before or since. Y
et the wood sprite and his fanciful world have been strangely overlooked, partly because Gruelle created Raggedy Ann immediately after the strip’s run, eclipsing not only Mr. Twee Deedle but almost everything else the cartoonist ever did.

Mr. Twee Deedle stands as a bizarre time-warp: at a time when most children’s literature and kids’ comic strips were somewhat violent or starkly moralistic (the Brothers Grimm; the Katzenjammer Kids; and even Little Nemo itself, which often depicted nightmares, fears, and dangers), Twee Deedle was sensitive and whimsical. Instead of stark moralizing, it presented gentle lessons.
It reads today like a work for the 21st century… indeed for all times, all ages.

Mr. Twee Deedle is edited and includes an introduction by comics historian Rick Marschall. The volume will present the first year of the forgotten masterpiece and selected episodes from later years, as well as special drawings, promotional material, and related artwork.

Shuzo Oshimi: Inside Mari 4

Komori’s apartment has led them to a dead-end.

Yet, after days without a reasonable lead to Mari’s whereabouts, one finds them.

Where has she been? Why has she disappeared? And why did she decide to make contact now?

John Stanley: Little Lulu – Working Girl

The first in a five-volume best-of series, featuring an introduction from Margaret Atwood!

Lulu Moppet is an outspoken and brazen young girl who doesn’t follow any rules–whether they’ve been set by her parents, the neighborhood boys, or society itself.

In 2019 D+Q begins a landmark full-color reissue series collecting five volumes of Lulu’s funniest suburban hijinks: she goes on picnics, babysits, and attempts to break into the boys’ clubhouse again and again.
Cartoonist John Stanley’s expert timing and constant gags made these stories unbelievably enjoyable, ensuring that Marge’s Little Lulu was a defining comic of the post-war period.

First released in the 1940s and 1950s as Dell comics, Little Lulu as helmed by Stanley remains one of the most entertaining works in the medium.
In this first volume, Little Lulu: Working Girl, we meet the series’ mainstay characters: Lulu, Tubby, Alvin, and oodles more neighbourhood kids. Little Lulu’s comedy lies in the hilarious dynamic between its cast of characters.

Lulu’s assertiveness, individuality, and creativity is empowering to witness–the series is powerfully feminist despite the decades in which the stories were created.
It’s the character’s strong personality that made her beloved by such feminist icons as Patti Smith, Eileen Myles, and more.

Lovingly restored to its original full color, complete with knee-slapping humor and an introduction by Margaret Atwood that explains the vitality of Lulu herself, Little Lulu: Working Girl is a delight for classic comics fans and the uninitiated.

Shuzo Oshimi: Inside Mari 5

With an unexpected clue, Yori and Isao are to wait for further contact from Mari.

Jason Lutes: Berlin

During the past two decades, Jason Lutes has quietly created one of the masterworks of the graphic novel golden age.

Berlin is one of the high-water marks of the medium: rich in its well-researched historical detail, compassionate in its character studies, and as timely as ever in its depiction of a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

Berlin is an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens—Marthe Müller, a young woman escaping the memory of a brother killed in World War I, Kurt Severing, an idealistic journalist losing faith in the printed word as fascism and extremism take hold; the Brauns, a family torn apart by poverty and politics.
Lutes weaves these characters’ lives into the larger fabric of a city slowly ripping apart.

The city itself is the central protagonist in this historical fiction.
Lavish salons, crumbling sidewalks, dusty attics, and train stations: all these places come alive in Lutes’ masterful hand.
Weimar Berlin was the world’s metropolis, where intellectualism, creativity, and sensuous liberal values thrived, and Lutes maps its tragic, inevitable decline.
Devastatingly relevant and beautifully told, Berlin is one of the great epics of the comics medium.

Sophie Yanow: The Contradictions

The Eisner Award–winning story about a student figuring out radical politics in a messy world

Sophie is young and queer and into feminist theory.

She decides to study abroad, choosing Paris for no firm reason beyond liking French comics.
Feeling a bit lonely and out of place, she’s desperate for community and a sense of belonging.

She stumbles into what/who she’s looking for when she meets Zena. An anarchist student-activist committed to veganism and shoplifting, Zena offers Sophie a whole new political ideology that feels electric.
Enamored―of Zena, of the idea of living more righteously―Sophie finds herself swept up in a whirlwind friendship that blows her even further from her rural California roots as they embark on a disastrous hitchhiking trip to Amsterdam and Berlin, full of couch surfing, drug tripping, and radical book fairs.

Capturing that time in your life where you’re meeting new people and learning about the world―when everything feels vital and urgent―The Contradictions is Sophie Yanow’s fictionalized coming-of-age story.
Sophie’s attempts at ideological purity are challenged time and again, putting into question the plausibility of a life of dogma in a world filled with contradictions.
Keenly observed, frank, and very funny, The Contradictions speaks to a specific reality while also being incredibly relatable, reminding us that we are all imperfect people in an imperfect world.
