Ilpo Koskela: Revel

Revel on novellikokoelma, jossa ovat samoissa kansissa Ilpo Koskelan vuosina 1985–2008 käsikirjoittamat ja piirtämät, useana vuonna Kemin valtakunnallisessa sarjakuvakilpailussa palkitut ALEKS REVEL -sarjakuvanovellit.

Tarinoiden tapahtumat sijoittuvat Suomeen ja lähialueille 1930-luvun alkuun, kieltolain ajan viimeisille hurjille salakuljetusvuosille.

Aleks salakuljettaa pirtua Suomeen, välttelee virkavaltaa ja ottaa yhteen muiden salakuljetusjengien kanssa, törmäten mielenkiintoisiin ihmisiin, tapahtumiin ja ajan ilmiöihin.
Myöhemmin 1930-luvun lopulla Aleks seikkailee Espanjassa, toisen maailmansodan jälkeisinä vuosina jälleen Suomessa ja 1950-luvun lopulla Havannassa Kuubassa.

Mukana on myös kaksi keskeneräistä, ennen julkaisematonta tarinan aloitusta, joissa tarinakokonaisuus kerrotaan synopsiksena sarjakuvasivujen jälkeen.

Nicole Claveloux: The Green Hand and Other Stories

Now in paperback, a collection of “darkly humorous, existential, erotic, trance inducing” (The New York Times) short stories by the lauded French comics artist Nicole Claveloux.

Nicole Claveloux’s short stories–originally published in the late 1970s and never before collected in English–are among the most beautiful comics ever drawn: whimsical, intoxicating, with the freshness and splendor of dreams.

In hallucinatory color or elegant black-and-white, she brings us into lands that are strange but oddly recognizable, filled with murderous grandmothers and lonely city dwellers, bad-tempered vegetables and walls that are surprisingly easy to fall through.

In the title story, written with Edith Zha, a new houseplant becomes the first step in an epic journey of self-discovery and a witty fable of modern romance–complete with talking shrubbery, a wised-up genie, and one very depressed bird.

This new selection, designed and introduced by Daniel Clowes, presents the full achievement of an unforgettable, unjustly neglected master of French comics.

Eugen Robick, Urbatect of Urbicande has been designing a new bridge to connect the southern portion of the city to the north, but his bid to commence construction has been denied by the Commission.

While contemplating how he can convince the Commission to see things his way, Eugen is brought a cube made of beams discovered during construction of another project.
Initially small enough to fit on his desk, it begins to grow, adding beam after beam, until it soon takes over his entire office.

Growing exponentially, it eventually takes over the entire city, disrupting the social order as citizens begin using the beams to travel back and forth between the southern and northern parts of the city, previously only accessible via the guarded bridges.

While the Commission wishes to put a stop to any such social change, the cube’s impact is overpowering and irreversible.

As the threat to her increases, the two flee through deserts, mountains, and swamps. They have only one option for escape: to cross the border.
But will they be able to find their way through this land that bears no resemblance to the maps Roland is familiar with and will his desire to save her get them both killed?

Will Eisner: The Contract with God Trilogy – Life on Dropsie Avenue

Published quietly in 1978, Will Eisner’s revolutionary literary work A Contract With God marked the invention of the modern graphic novel, took on a life of its own, and inspired a generation of “sequential artists.”

Will Eisner (1917–2005) saw himself as “a graphic witness reporting on life, death, heartbreak, and the never-ending struggle to prevail.”

The publication of A Contract With God when Eisner was sixty-one proved to be a watershed moment both for him and for comic literature.
It marked the birth of the modern graphic novel and the beginning of an era when serious cartoonists could be liberated from their stultifying comic-book format.

More than a quarter-century after the initial publication of A Contract With God, and in the last few months of his life, Eisner chose to combine the three fictional works he had set on Dropsie Avenue, the mythical street of his youth in Depression-era New York City.

As the dramas unfold in A Contract With God, the first book in this new trilogy, it is at 55 Dropsie Avenue where Frimme Hersh, the pious Jew, first loses his beloved daughter, then breaks his contract with his maker, and ends up as a slumlord; it is on Dropsie Avenue where a street singer, befriended by an aging diva, is so beholden to the bottle that he fails to grasp his chance for stardom; and it is there that a scheming little girl named Rosie poisons a depraved super’s dog before doing in the super as well.

In the second book, A Life Force, declared by R. Crumb to be “a masterpiece,” Eisner re-creates himself in his protagonist, Jacob Shtarkah, whose existential search reflected Eisner’s own lifelong struggle. Chronicling not only the Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression but also the rise of Nazism and the spread of left-wing politics, Eisner combined the miniaturist sensibility of Henry Roth with the grand social themes of novelists such as Dos Passos and Steinbeck.

Finally, in Dropsie Avenue: The Neighborhood, Eisner graphically traces the social trajectory of this mythic avenue over four centuries, creating a sweeping panorama of the city and its waves of new residents―the Dutch, English, Irish, Jews, African Americans, and Puerto Ricans―whose faces changed yet whose lives presented an unending “story of life, death, and resurrection.”

The Contract With God Trilogy is a mesmerizing, fictional chronicle of a universal American experience and Eisner’’ most poignant and enduring literary legacy.

George Herriman: Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924

In this volume: precarious coconuts, incarcerated elephants, and witty weather patterns.

This Eisner Award-nominated series, featuring all the Krazy Kat Sunday strips’ eternally beguiling love triangle, luminous language, and grand desert décor, makes it plain to Herriman fans and newcomers alike why historians, scholars, and cartoonists consider this the best comic strip ever created.

L. Frank Baum & Walt McDougall: Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz

At the dawn of the 20th century, L. Frank Baum created a world of wonders that was to hold a permanent place in the culture of America: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Then in 1904, to promote his second book, Baum, along with master cartoonist Walt McDougall, brought his famed characters to Earth in a new medium, the comic strip.

Queer Visitors from Marvelous Land of Oz had arrived.
At this same time, Oz illustrator W.W. Denslow, offered his own Sunday feature, Scarecrow and the Tinman.

Now both of these rare cartoon features are collected for the first time, magnificently restored and presented in full broadsheet size.

Join these timeless characters and explore the culture that was America over 100 years ago.
