Tiia Salmelin: Kuolleet puutarhat 1 – Unten kaupunki

Unten kaupunki on Kuolleet puutarhat -fantasiasaagan ensimmäinen osa.

Koko elämänsä Flar on ollut äitinsä tavoin unennäkijä.
Unet ovat olleet hänen ilonsa ja taakkansa, ja nyt ne ovat johdattaneet hänet halki erämaiden mystisen kaupungin porteille; unohdetun kaupungin, joka seisoo unten virrassa.
Flar uskoo löytävänsä sieltä vastaukset mieltään piinaaviin kysymyksiin ja keinon ymmärtää uniaan, sekä oppia niistä.

Kaupunkia hallitseva Unten temppeli ottaa matkalaisen vastaan ilolla ja hyväksynnällä luvaten auttaa miehen tiedonjanon tyrehdyttämisessä paljastamalla unten virran salat.
Kaiken huipuksi Flar tapaa kaupungissa unioppaansa, jota on luullut mielensä tuotokseksi, rakkaan ystävän, joka on johdattanut häntä oikeaan suuntaan lapsuudesta saakka.

Flar iloitsee saavutettuaan määränpäänsä, mutta saa pian huomata, ettei kaikki Unten kaupungissa ole sitä, miltä näyttää.
Kaupungin muurit kätkevät taakseen synkkiä salaisuuksia ja jokin pimeä voima tuntuu pitävän paikkaa otteessaan. Flarille valkenee lopulta, että hänen matkansa pää onkin sen alku.

Kuolleet puutarhat on tarina ystävyydestä, syyllisyyden painolastista, sovituksesta ja siitä, mitä on olla ihminen.

Sarjakuvaa julkaistiin alunperin netissä vuosina 2010-2019.
Tämä albumi sisältää kokonaan uudelleen piirretyn ja sovitetun tarinan aloitusosan. Tällä kertaa kokonaan värillisenä sarjakuvana.

Karstein Volle: Pandemia mielessäin

Pandemia Mielessäin on Karstein Vollen improvisoitu koronapäiväkirja keväästä 2020, ensimmäisen sulkutilan ajasta.

Miten selviytyä jokapäiväisestä arjesta eristyksissä?
Kuinka selittää lapsille, että he eivät voi tavata kavereitaan?
Miltä tuntuu, kun kotipalvelu vierailee naapuruston yksinäisten vanhusten luona täydessä suojavaatetuksessa…

Teos kuvaa päiviä, jolloin ajatukset palaavat kaikkeen, mitä ihminen on kokenut elämässään.
Pohdinnan aiheina ovat tehdyt elämänvalinnat, kuolleiden vanhempien ja menehtyneiden ystävien kaipuu – eikä vähäisimpänä kavala tauti, joka piileskelee joka nurkan takana.

“Pieni, tärkeä dokumentti ajasta, jota juuri nyt elämme.”   – Empirix

ENNAKKOTILAUKSET

Derf Backderf: Kent State – Neljä kuollutta Ohiossa (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS KIRJA ILMESTYY 12.11.2021.

Neljäs toukokuuta vuonna 1970 Kent State Universityssä kansalliskaartin sotilaat ampuivat Vietnamin sotaa vastustaneita opiskelijoita.

Tappavassa tulituksessa ammuttiin 67 laukausta, joiden seurauksena neljä opiskelijaa kuoli ja yhdeksän haavoittui. Sinä päivänä Amerikka käänsi aseiden piiput kohti omia lapsiaan. Järkyttävä tapahtuma paloi pysyvästi kansakunnan muistiin.

Muutamaa päivää aiemmin kymmenvuotias Derf Backderf oli nähnyt samat sotilaat partioimassa kotikaupungissaan.
Kuvernööri oli lähettänyt kaartin murtamaan rahtarien lakkoa.

Backderf käytti journalistisia kykyjään samoin kuin aiemmassa teoksessaan Ystäväni Dahmer, ja teki joukon laajoja haastatteluja sekä tutkimuksia selvittääkseen, millaista neljän nuoren uhrin elämä oli ennen kohtalokasta toukokuun päivää. USA vaikutti tuolloin olevan repeämäisillään, ja Kent Statessa paine purkautui traagisella tavalla.

Kuinka paljon asiat ovat lopulta muuttuneet 50 vuodessa? Kent State – Neljä kuollutta Ohiossa on perusteellisella työllä ja vaivalla toteutettu, syvältä kouraiseva ja huolestuttavan ajankohtainen teos.

Jeff VanderMeer & Theo Ellsworth: Secret Life

An uncanny and eye-opening journey into a mysterious building, adapted from a short story by Jeff VanderMeer

To the west: trees.
To the east: a mall.
North: fast food.
South: darkness.

And at the centre is The Building, an office building wherein several factions vie for dominance.
Inside, the walls are infiltrated with vines, a mischief of mice learn to speak English, and something eerie happens once a month on the fifth floor.

In Secret Life, Theo Ellsworth uses a deep-layered style to interpret Nebula award-winning author Jeff VanderMeer’s short story. What emerges is a mind-bending narrative that defamiliarizes the mundanity of office work and makes the arcane rituals of The Building home.

When his manager borrows his pen for a presentation, a man is driven to unspeakable acts as he questions the role the pen has played in his workplace success.
The despised denizens of the second floor develop their own tongue, incomprehensible to everyone else in The Building.
A woman plants a seed of insurgency that quickly permeates every corner of the building with its sweet, nostalgic perfume.

With deft insight, Secret Life observes the sinister individualism of bureaucratic settings in contrast with an unconcerned natural world.

As the narrative progresses you may begin to suspect that the world Ellsworth has brought to life with hypnotic visuals is not so secret after all; in fact, it’s uncannily similar to our own.

Christophe Blain & Joann Sfar: Dungeon Early Years 1-2 – The Night Shirt

In this first story, the Keeper, barely an adult, leaves his family to go find fortune in a time of chaos and darkness…a fun adventure and wry satire.

Hyacinthe, Dungeon Keeper to be, continues to render justice in a cloak nightly as The Night Shirt and stumbles upon the one he pines for, Alexandra, an assassin, about to be raped! After his valiant and heroic rescue, his wettest dreams come true…with dire consequences.

In the second story which happens quite a few years later, he’s married and a poor husband, worse even, a poor lover, until Alexandra plots to gain him back.
Cloak and dagger with romantic bravura! And you thought he didn’t have it in him.

Art by Eisner nominated Blain ( Gus) and story by legendary Trondheim and Eisner nominated Sfar ( Rabbi’s Cat).

Nick Roche: Scarenthood

Seven short horror comic stories by animator Martin Cendreda (Bojack Horseman, South Park.)

Martin Cendreda is a gifted comics storyteller who spends most of his days working as an animator (Bojack Horseman, South Park) and therefore hasn’t had a collection of his work… unitil now!

Printed in red, white, and black, The Hand of Black and Other Stories collects seven mostly-silent, short stories (most of which have never been published) that are each a chiseled, mini-masterpiece of dark humor and horror, and will resonate with fans of the Twilight Zone or the works of Daniel Clowes.

Jason: Good Night, Hem

Three interconnecting short stories starring Ernest Hemingway comprise the latest graphic novel by the beloved Norwegian cartoonist, Jason.

Ernest Hemingway stars in three interconnecting short stories in this graphic novel.

Paris, 1925. Our story begins when Hemingway meets Athos, the last Musketeer, who, together with several more friends of Hemingway, travel to Spain’s Pamplona for the fiesta. Festivities and complications ensue.

Paris, 1944. The second story starts the day after the liberation of Paris when Hemingway, now a war correspondent, decides enough is enough, and takes action to end the war for good. With a group of adventurers and resistance fighters, he parachutes into Germany to do just that.

Cuba, late 1950s. Our literary lion is in his twilight years, writing his memoirs, remembering his first and second meeting with the seemingly immortal Athos.

Mixing fact and fiction, Jason has imaginatively recreated one of America’s greatest and most controversial writers of the 20th century.
