KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Maikki Harjanne: Täydellinen Minttu – Kaikki Minttu-sarjakuvat

Minttu, Ville, Tuusannuuska, Mikko Neppius ja muut tutut ovat täällä taas!

Maikki Harjanteen Minttu on lastenkirjaklassikko, joka ei esittelyjä kaipaa. Minttua on luettu lapsille pian 45 vuoden ajan, ja tuona aikana tuhannet lapset ovat saaneet nimensä Mintun mukaan.

Minttu-sarjakuvat ovat jääneet kuvakirjoja vähemmälle huomiolle – ja aivan syyttä! Sarjakuva-Minttu ystävineen seikkaili Kotiliesi-lehdessä vuosina 1982-1990 aivan yhtä hersyvästi kuin kuvakirjoissakin. Minttu pohtii, tutkii, auttaa, keksii, kyselee ja kokeilee, aivan kuten lapsilla tapana on.

Täydellinen Minttu -kokoelma sisältää kaikki Minttu-sarjakuvat. Osaa niistä ei ole aiemmin julkaistu kirjamuodossa. Isokokoisessa, nelivärisessä kirjassa on yli 200 sivua.

Maikki Harjanne (s. -44) on kirjoittanut ja kuvittanut yli sata teosta. Hänet on palkittu työstään mm. Nuorisokirjallisuuden valtionpalkinnolla, Lastenkulttuurin valtionpalkinnolla, Kaarina Helakisa -palkinnolla ja Pro Finlandia -kunniamerkillä.

Sami Makkonen: Hevosjumala

Hyytävää kauhua Suomen korpimailla.

Nuori perhe toteuttaa unelmansa ja ostaa ränsistyneen kesähuvilan kaukaa kotoa. Kesä on kaunis ja kuuma, mutta ympäröivän metsän raskas menneisyys on läsnä.

Keskellä kauneinta luontoa on jotain kammottavaa ja houreista.

Sami Makkonen säväytti aiemmin Kalevalan tulkinnallaan. Hevosjumalassa hän kuljettaa tarinaa spiraalimaisestii aikatasolta toiselle vanhojen painajaisten tihentyessä uusiin muotoihinsa.
Syntyy yliluonnollisen kauhun, okkultismin ja kansan uskomusten ristisiitos – öinen polku kohti mustaa syöveriä…

Johanna Aulén: Tšernobylin koirat

Tšernobylin koirat kertoo maailman tuhoisimmasta ydinvoimalaonnettomuudesta ja koirista, jotka sinnittelevät ihmisten hylkäämällä vyöhykkeellä.

Neuvostoliittolainen Tšernobylin ydinvoimala räjähti 26.4.1986. Onnettomuus aiheutti laajoja radioaktiivisia päästöjä ja muutti voimalan lähialueet asuinkelvottomiksi.

Mutta vaikka ihmiset evakuoitiin, Tšernobylin eläimet jäivät oman onnensa nojaan.

Haastatteluihin ja tutkimuksiin perustuva Tšernobylin koirat kertoo kahden koiran – Bobikin ja Gamman – kautta Tšernobylin onnettomuudesta ja elämästä suljetulla vyöhykkeellä nyky-Ukrainassa. Komeasti kuvitettu dokumentaarinen sarjakuva on kertomus luonnon ja ihmisen sitkeydestä.

Johanna Aulén (s. 1981) on vantaalainen graafikko, animaattori ja kuvataideopettaja, joka vieraili Tšernobylin ydinvoimala-alueella vuonna 2019. Hän on tehnyt matkastaan myös kuvitetun reportaasin Ylen Kulttuuricocktailille.

Jean Graton: Michel Vaillant – Painajainen

Formulakuski Michel Vaillant on tuttu suomalaisille lukijoille omista albumeistaan sekä lukuisista lehdistä ja taskukirjoista.

Vaillant on terävä ja kylmähermoinen rallikuski, jonka seikkailut liittyvät usein kilpa-autoilun maailmaan.

Sarja tunnetaankin vauhdikkaista takaa-ajoista sekä huolellisesti piirretyistä kulkuneuvoista.

Vaillantin tallin tähden uusin seikkailu alkaa, kun vitivalkoinen kuuauto kulkee kraatterien täplittämän, aution maiseman halki. Kuuauton ohjaksissa istuu avaruuspuvussa Michel Vaillant!
Onko sankarimme siirtynyt Le Mansin radoilta toiselle taivaankappaleelle, vai onko kyseessä vain painajainen?

Tästä alkaa huikea seikkailu, joka vie Michelin ystävineen kidnappausten ja teollisuusvakoilun pyörteisiin.

Juliana Hyrri: Päivänkakkarameri

Päivänkakkarameri on kertomus kulttuurien välissä kasvamisesta, yhteenkuuluvuuden tunteen etsimisestä ja hylkäämisen pelosta.

Tarinaa kannattelee ajatus eräänlaisesta jälleennäkemisestä lapsuuden kanssa, vuoropuhelusta, ehkä hyväksymisestäkin.

Juliana Hyrri (s. 1989, Kohtla-Järve, Viro) on helsinkiläinen kuvataiteilija, joka tekee sarjakuvia, maalauksia, installaatioita ja kuvituksia. Päivänkakkarameri on hänen toinen sarjakuvakirjansa.

Suomen arvostelijain liitto palkitsi esikoisteoksen Satakieli joka ei laulanut Kritiikin kannuksilla vuonna 2020.

Lise Myhre: Nemi 44 – Kuin kala vedessä

Alati muuttuva maailma vaatii hyvää sopeutumiskykyä, myös Nemiltä.

Hän tosin pakottaa ajoittain ympäristönsä sopeutumaan sen sijaan, että muuttaisi omia tapojaan.

Toisinaan Nemin asenne johtaa vaikeuksiin ja ristiriitatilanteisiin, mutta niistäkin sanavalmis sankarimme selviää yleensä voittajana, tavalla tai toisella.

Mikko Metsähonkala: Talleyrand – Sontaa silkkisukassa, sanoi Napoleon

Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord (1754-1838) Autunin piispa, kansanedustaja, ministeri ja beneventon ruhtinas, aloitti pappisuralla, mutta tempautui Ranskan suuren vallankumouksen aikoihin politiikan tuoksinaan ja onnistui pysymään pinnalla läpi myrskyjen ja myllerrysten.

Hän oli etevä diplomaatti, mutta myös selkäänpuukottaja, opportunisti, uhkapeluri, irstailija ja kirkon kiroama piispa – sontaa silkkisukassa, kuten Napoleon häntä parjasi.

Talleyrand oli ihanteeton mies suurten aatteiden ja intohimojen aikakaudella. Nyt on takapirun aika astua kulisseista parrasvaloihin.

MIKKO METSÄHONKALA on 1966 Ylöjärvellä syntynyt arkkitehti, kuvittaja ja sarjakuvantekijä, joka on vaikuttanut viimeiset kymmenen vuotta Tampereella.

Carl Barks: Carl Barksin sankarit – Karhukopla

Ankkamestari Carl Barks (1901–2000) kehitti pitkän piirtäjänuransa aikana lukemattomia seikkailuja Ankkalinnan asukkaille.

Vauhdikkaat tarinat vaativat vastustajia, ja Barksin luomista roistoista tunnetuimmat ja rakastetuimmat ansaitsevat ilman muuta myös sankarin arvonimen.

Tässä kirjassa kohtaamme Karhukoplan – viekkaasta veljessarjasta kansainväliseksi konnajärjestöksi kasvaneen lurjuslauman, joka aiheuttaa Roopelle loputtomasti harmia ja harmaita höyheniä.

Kamppailussa Kissansilmäopaalista, Turmantimantista ja rahakkaasta salaattikuormasta joutuvat myös rosvot koville, ja uhattuna on usein paitsi kelmien kunnia myös terveys.

Karhuveikko 176-761:n sanoin: ”Kuinka ohut kirja elämäkerrastani tuleekaan!”

ULKOMAISET UUTUUDET

Rikke Villadsen: The Sea

A fisherman traversing the ocean is used to danger and surprise, but what happens when he pulls up his net and catches a newborn baby and a talking fish?

Thus begins a story full of provocative symbolism and a madness that doesn’t just bubble beneath the surface of the water, but drenches the sailor–and reader–like a tidal wave.

Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen makes her English-language debut with this seafaring tale soaked in surrealism that is ultimately about the end of one life, the beginning of another, and a man, literally and figuratively, lost at sea.

Salva Rubio & Efa: Django, Hand on Fire

Django Reinhardt is a legend.

But Django – which may have meant He who wakens – was twice born.

A first time in the snow, during the winter of 1910 in a nomadic gypsy family stationed in Liberchies, Belgium.

The second in Saint-Ouen, near Paris, in the fall of 1928, when a fire in his caravan mutilated his left hand.

Writer Salva Rubio and artist Efa have already produced together a remarkable biopic on Monet, paying tribute to the painter’s obsession with light.
Likewise, this biopic devoted to the youth of the prodigy musician features the passion and determination of the man who has always considered himself the greatest guitarist in the world.

In this story-score, by laying out the panels like chords, the artist brings to life his passion in vibrating watercolor to better accompany the musical and technical development of the inventor of gypsy jazz. From musette to jazz, from violin to banjo then to guitar, Django’s destiny is that of his ‘hand on fire’, possessed by the supernatural spirit of the duende which burns in the soul of each gypsy musician.

That of a miracle who is reborn from his ashes, more dazzling than ever. Cue the music!

Héctor Germán Oesterheld & Alberto Breccia: Life of Che

Published in 1969, this Argentine graphic biography about Ernesto “Che” Guevara was an instant bestseller.

Banned by a military dictatorship, and almost lost, it has never been available in English ― until now.

Life of Che is one of the most anticipated entries in Fantagraphics’ The Alberto Breccia Library.

Originally released as part of a graphic biography series in January 1969, it came out in Argentina only a year after Ernesto “Che” Guevara had died and reached an audience beyond comics readers.

In the 1970s, the military government raided its publisher, destroying the means to reprint the book.
The comic was presumed to be lost to history, until a publisher in Spain restored it in 1987. It has never been translated into English until now.

The book begins in Bolivia in 1967, then flashes back through Che’s life ― his childhood, his radicalizing motorcycle trip with Alberto Granado, his taking up of arms in Guatemala, his meeting with Fidel Castro, and his subsequent military and political maneuvers, ending in a fade-out to his death.

Alberto Breccia and his son, Enrique, drew Life of Che.
Enrique draws the Bolivia passages in a woodcut style, while Alberto depicts the flashbacks in his trademark, expressionistic black-and-white.

It is primarily set in the field and with the people.
Héctor Germán Oesterheld (The Eternaut) blends his authorial voice with Che’s first-person.

Life of Che is imbued with a sense of immediacy, as both Che and, eventually, Oesterheld would meet their ends by a military government backed by the American CIA.

As Pablo Turnes writes in his afterword, it is “the testament of someone consciously marching toward his revolutionary death.”

Emily Carrington: Our Little Secret

At 15, Emily is a relatively typical teenage girl living in the Maritimes.

She lives with her eccentric dad as he prepares to build a log cabin.
She rides her beloved horse and spends all her free time taking in the fresh air.

But things aren’t perfect, the winters are harsh and her dad’s place is cold and draughty. Enter their neighbour who sees a girl in need and offers to lend a hand.

Three words: “OUR LITTLE SECRET, and Emily’s fate is sealed.

Twenty five years later, Emily is adrift and depressed when she spots her neighbour again on a ferry.
The events of that long-ago winter come rushing back, and she is forced to reckon with the past anew.

She vows that she will bring him to justice, tell her secret, and come to terms with the wounds that defined so many years of her life. Inept lawyers, expensive therapy, and a broken justice system block Emily’s path to peace. Only when she rediscovers her youthful artistic talent by putting pen to paper does she see a way out.

Now in her fifties, Carrington has crafted a compulsively readable debut that shows a powerful command of the comics medium.

Our Little Secret is a testament to survival and to the importance of telling your story your way.

Marjorie Liu & Teny Issakhanian: Wingbearer

A young girl must stop a threat to her magical world in this epic graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Marjorie Liu and remarkable debut illustrator Teny Issakhanian.

Zuli is extraordinary–she just doesn’t realize it yet.

She’s never had to. Until now.

When a sinister force threatens the life-giving magic of the tree, Zuli, along with her guardian owl, Frowly, must get to the root of it.

So begins an adventure bigger than anything Zuli could’ve ever imagined–one that will bring her, along with some newfound friends, face-to-face with an ancient dragon, the so-called Witch-Queen, and most surprisingly of all: her true identity.

This captivating middle grade graphic novel, the first of a series, is perfect for fans of the Amulet books and the Wings of Fire series.

The classic book featuring Maybonne Mullen and her little sister Marlys is back in print!

Lynda Barry captures all the glorious magic and excrutiating pain of junior high school in this Ernie Pook Comeek collection from the early 90’s.

The star of this collection is 14 year old Maybonne who relays the angst and insecurity of life through hand scrawled diary entries, class assignments, and letters, in cursive with doodle and bubble letters.

Of course, there is the ever-annoying yet adorable little sister Marlys who never fails to read her big sister’s diary.

In an authentic teen voice full of diffidence and melodrama, the bespectacled and freckled Maybonne relates all of life’s indiginities on equal measure.

It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private–so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not?

All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice?

In The Nice House on the Lake, the overriding anxieties of the 21st century get a terrifying new face–and it might just be the face of the person you once trusted most.

Si Spurrier & Bob Quinn: Way of X by Si Spurrier 1

Only one mutant senses the looming shadows.

On Krakoa, mutantkind has built a new Eden — but there are serpents in this garden.

Some mutants struggle to fit in. Some mutants turn to violence and death. And the children whisper of the Patchwork Man, singing in their hearts.

Snared by questions of death, law and love, only Nightcrawler can fight for the soul of Krakoa.
Only he — and the curious crew he assembles — can help mutants defeat their inner darkness and find a new way to live!

But the malevolent force hiding within Krakoa has begun to show its true form, and answers are hidden…within the Mindscape!

As the X-Men’s greatest foe — mutantkind’s primal evil — slithers in the minds of its most senior leaders, can Nightcrawler light the spark that will drive out the shadows, or will Krakoa slip into the abyss?

Jérôme Mulot & Florent Ruppert & Bastien Vivès: The Grande Odalisque & Olympia Box Set

The complete two-volume adventures of the notorious cat burglar trio of Carole, Alex, and Sam.

Just in time for the release of Olympia this season comes a boxed set collecting The Grande Odalisque and Olympia, which form the complete, two-volume saga of master art criminals Carole, Alex, and Sam.

Specializing in the theft of fine art, the trio reinvents a profession that has lost much of its fun and insolence since its heyday in the early 20th century.

After successfully stealing La Grande Odalisque by Ingrés from the Louvre (in Fantagraphics’ acclaimed 2021 edition of the same name) and taking on the French Special Forces, the trio eyes Manet’s Olympia in the eponymous sequel.

Collectively the two books paint a vivid portrait of three of the most badass femmes fatales in recent comics memory.

Forming a trio as formidable as their protagonists, Bastien Vives, Jérôme Mulot, and Florent Ruppert deliver a wickedly funny and explosive, grand symphony of adventure in this two-book series, collected for the first time in a handsome, hardcover slipcase.

Pier Dola: Corona Bible

When one man, too terrified to leave his ratty apartment during the pandemic, turns exclusively to social media for human contact, his quarantine routine disintegrates into madness.

Thus kicks off a hilariously withering social critique of an entire planet filled with masses of humanity suffering from a dearth of compassion, decency, and empathy.

Nothing escapes Dola’s manic, trenchant stare as he takes on a vast array of contemporary social deformities — anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theorists, xenophobes, the alt right, the woke left, evangelical fanatics, corporate power mongers, racists, fascists, neo-Nazis, gerontophobes, nihilistic revelers, Boris Johnson, and the death of the social contract.

And yet there are still those rare moments of human idealism and striving amidst the moral, spiritual, and physical carnage.

As one man says, consolingly, to another: “Although in these dark times of selfish fear it seems that goodness doesn’t exist in our hearts, there are still good people. Maybe they are the minority, but those rare islands are the ones that make it bearable to swallow the oceans of shit formed by the armies of assholes that surround us.”

A rare moment of hope and optimism in an otherwise scabrous and coruscating portrait of humanity in a death spiral.

Magneto, the mutant master of magnetism — one of the founders of the mutant nation of Krakoa, a former villain who has never stopped fighting for the benefit of mutantkind — stars in the story that will shake Krakoa to its core!

A horrific murder. A shocking revelation.

And a trial that will divide the new mutant nation down the middle — and possibly shatter it forever!

Leah Williams and Valerio Schiti bring you an epic mystery that threatens the Reign of X and upends the world that Magneto has worked so hard to build for his fellow mutants.

The truth is deeply hidden, the danger is far from over, and the trial has begun…

Tom Kaczynski: Beta Testing the Ongoing Apocalypse

In this new, expanded edition, the starting point is arbitrary.

From there, the city expands in all directions.
At once SF, a contemporary demonology, an occult theory, a mutant utopia and an architectural treatise, Beta Testing the Ongoing Apocalypse is a collection of graphic fictions about the contemporary global megalopolis.

178 This groundbreaking collection, originally published in an Eisner-nominated, smaller edition a decade ago, has only proven more prescient and resonant to our contemporary times than ever.

For this new edition, Kaczynski created the original stories “Billion Dollar Budget” and “Rediscovery of the Real” and annotations.

There’s also a new foreword by science fiction writer Christopher Brown (Tropic of Kansas) and an entirely new cover design.
Tom Kaczynski’s graphic short stories trace a complex space-time trajectory from the smallest corporate cubicle out to farthest fathoms of the multiverse.

Occult economics, metaphysical traffic jams, Marxist zombies on Mars, secret architectural societies, designer ghosts from the future, and demographics demons are just a few elements of a new untested future eschatology.

Kauhun ja autuuden hetkien nopeatempoinen vaihtelu tuo muuten kalvaaseen olemassaoloon tervetullutta vaihtelua.
