Emmi Valve: Armo (ENNAKKOTILAUS)
ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ HUHTIKUUSSA 2022.
Jo lapsena jokin kiskaisee Emmin toiseen ulottuvuuteen.
Siellä asioiden ja toisten ihmisten pimeät puolet ovat hänelle näkyviä. Ihmisten katseet ja kosketukset tekevät häneen reikiä, ja hän yrittää piilottaa kaikkialle tunkeutuvan mustan mönjän, joka karkaa ulos hänen sieraimistaan tai suustaan.
Emmin elämä on helvettiä. On ollut niin kauan kuin hän muistaa.
Armo kertoo tästä elämästä, uskomattomista seikkailuista baarien, makuuhuoneiden, väkivallantekojen, harhojen ja mielisairaaloiden syövereissä.
Emmi Valveen omaelämäkerrallinen sarjakuvaromaani on suora, karu ja hurja ja höystetty isolla määrällä mustaa huumoria.
Emmi Valve (s. 1984) on porvoolainen sarjakuvataiteilija ja kuvittaja. Valveen esikoisteos, päiväkirja-albumi Sit kun sun naama räjähtää (Huuda Huuda) ilmestyi 2013.
Vuonna 2018 ilmestyi Girl Gang Bang Bang – Ei kenenkään tyttöjä (Zum Teufel).
Armo ilmestyi Aseman kustantamana vuonna 2017, ja se on käännetty myös ranskaksi.
Zum Teufel julkaisee kirjan kovakantisen painoksen keväällä 2022.
Dave Sim & Carson Grubaugh: The Strange Death of Alex Raymond
Comics’ answer to Finnegan’s Wake, an inspired work of obsessive genius that will take a long time to untangle.
– Rob Salkowitz, Senior Contributor, FORBES
The Strange Death of Alex Raymond is one of the most spectacular comics I have ever read or seen. I can’t recommend it enough, although you may hate it. Bizarre and beautiful and completely unique.
– Jim Rugg, Cartoonist Kayfabe, Street Angel, The P.L.A.I.N. Janes
This is a master work. I’m honoured to have even laid eyes on it.
– E.S. Glenn, author of Unsmooth, cartoonist for The New Yorker
A must-read for anyone interested in the history and craft of comics
– Brandon Graham, King City, Warhead, Prophet
Grubaugh provides a brilliant and fitting conclusion to what would have otherwise been one of the most notable unfinished works of recent times. I for one am excited at holding the completed Strange Death of Alex Raymond in my hands. – Gary Spencer Millidge, Strangehaven, Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman
Legendary creator Dave Sim is renowned world-wide for his groundbreaking Cerebus the Aardvark.
Now, in The Strange Death of Alex Raymond, Sim brings to life the history of comics’ greatest creators, using their own techniques.
Equal parts Understanding Comics and From Hell, Strange Death is a head-on collision of ink drawing and spiritual intrigue, pulp comics and movies, history and fiction.
The story traces the lives and techniques of Alex Raymond ( Flash Gordon, Rip Kirby), Stan Drake ( Juliet Jones), Hal Foster ( Prince Valiant), and more, dissecting their techniques through recreations of their artwork, and highlighting the metatextual resonances that bind them together.
Foreword by Eddie Campbell.
John Stanley: Little Lulu – The Little Girl Who Could Talk to Trees
The hijinks of a bold and brash little girl make these timeless comics laugh-out-loud funny.
Forget trying to break into the boys club, Lulu Moppet would rather tear it down!
In this volume of Drawn & Quarterly’s landmark reprints of Marge’s Little Lulu, our heroine plays pranks on her male counterparts, beating them at their own game and having a lot more fun because of it.
Many of the strips in Little Lulu: The Little Girl Who Could Talk to Trees are farcical retellings of classic nursery rhymes and fairy tales–stories Lulu is telling Alvin, the boy she babysits. Only, when Lulu’s running the show, she casts herself as the main character, much to Alvin’s dismay! And rather than barreling straight toward a simple moralistic ending about the importance of sharing or kindness, her yarns veer sideways for a rollicking punch line every time.
Lulu also ventures into the supernatural–encouraging a ghost who isn’t bold enough to scare those around him, flying above her neighborhood on a magic rocking horse, and entering a haunted house alone, covered in a white sheet, when Tubby and the rest of the boys say she can’t come with them because she’s a girl.
This is the third in Drawn & Quarterly’s best-of reprintings of one of the greatest comics of all time, penned by John Stanley. Younger readers will appreciate the audacity of these kids’s pranks, while Stanley’s hilariously true-to-life portrayals of wacky children make these comics extra funny for older readers.

Tom King & Mitch Gerads: Strange Adventures
Bestselling writer Tom King is back with a new epic that reinvents one of DC’s classic science-fiction adventurers, Adam Strange, examining whether his actions were heroic or disgraceful.
This new science fiction epic written by bestselling author Tom King reinvents one of DC’s classic adventure characters, Adam Strange.
Born on Earth and hero of the distant planet Rann, Adam Strange is famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor.
After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife, Alanna, retire to Earth, where they are greeted with cheers, awards, and parades.
But not all is as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family. It will take an investigation by one of the most brilliant heroes in the DC Universe, Mr. Terrific, to uncover the truth and reveal whether Adam Strange is a hero or a disgrace.

Collects Strange Adventures #1-12.
This collection of drawings and one-page cartoons by the internationally infamous cartoonist (and beloved children’s book author) is a universal condemnation of human rottenness.
The third book in Fantagraphics ongoing project to reprint Tomi Ungerer’s 1970s-1980s satirical work, Babylon may be the most sobering collection so far, an example of his humor at its blackest.
Drawn entirely in pencil, these fully rendered images, reproduced in lush, dense, gray tones, rival the satirical vitriol of his anti-war posters of the previous decade, radiating repulsion at what human beings can do to one another in the guise of “civilization.”
Taking on a political and social hue, his contempt for the ruling class etched on virtually every page, Ungerer depicts the bourgeoisie as vassals of the ruling class ― members of a voyeuristic tribe who accept their position as the natural order of things and take glee in the subordination of those beneath them and the exploitation of those who make their position possible. Trendy spiritualism and religious quackery are skewered.
Several drawings show people desperately trying to improve their appearance by putting lipstick on or having plastic surgery, clearly a transparent attempt to hide their inner ugliness.
This denouncement of bad behavior is as sadly relevant today as it was in 1979 when this book was first published, as we have proved over these last four years. It is another uncompromising moral statement by Ungerer in the form of a series of masterful images. “There’s one thing I can tell you for sure,” he once said. “There’s no such thing as a sheltering sky.”
And Babylon proves he means it.

Inexplicable murders in the Catskills.

Arthur Munroe, a journalist at the scene, follows a trail of legends to an abandoned Dutch colonial mansion at the top of one of the nearby mountains to find answers.
This Lovecraft tale is adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones.
In addition to the comic book adaptation this volume also contains the original Lovecraft published story as written by him.
