KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Post Mortem

Joensuun sarjakuvaseuran kymmenes julkaisu on matkalippusi aavelaivaan, tiesi pimeyteen, jonka syövereistä nousseet kaameudet vaanivat metsissä, huutavat nummilla ja tunkeutuvat ihosi alle niin, ettet ole tuholaistorjujan käynnin jälkeen enää entiselläsi.

Toivotamme sinulle hyvää matkaa yöhön. Älä eksy polulta.

Pimeästä löytyneet: Jimi Alppimaa, Jusa Hämäläinen, Miia Jääskeläinen, Noora Kaikkonen, Lauri Kinanen, Arttu Koistinen, Tuomas Koivurinne, Roope-Santeri Nieminen, Kimmo Niiranen, Sanna Nuutinen, Meri-Kukka Okkonen, Sami Pehkonen, Lili Peltola, Ville Rautiainen, Mika K.

Francois Walthéry & E. Borgers: Natasha – Caltechin kriisi

Lentoemäntä Natasha on neuvokas ja viehkeä sankaritar, joka työnsä johdosta päätyy seikkailemaan eri puolille maapalloa, eksoottisiin ja jännittäviin paikkoihin.

Walthéryn luoma Natasha on yksi eurooppalaisen sarjakuvan suuria klassikkoja, ja hahmo on nauttinut suurta suosiota myös Suomessa 70-luvulta alkaen.

Natasha ja ystävänsä stuertti Walter saavat muutaman vapaapäivän amerikanlentojen välissä. Walter on onnistunut kuvaamaan taivaalla vilkkuvia salaperäisiä valoja, ja niin kaksikko päättää matkustaa Kalifornian yliopistolle Caltechiin selvittämään ilmiötä.

Onko kyseessä lentävä lautanen? Miksi hallituksen agentit jahtaavat Natashaa ja Walteria?

Moninaisuuksia

Sukupuolen moninaisuus on osa ihmisyyden loputonta, rikasta varianssia. Tähän antologiaan on saatu 11 tekijältä sarjakuvia, joissa käsitellään trans- ja muunsukupuolisuutta eri näkökulmista. Mukaan mahtuu niin nykyhetkeen sijoittuvaa pohdintaa, historiallisten nyanssien selvittelyä ja vapaata tulkintaa sukupuolen merkityksestä tulevaisuudessa – puhdasta mielikuvituksen leikkiä unohtamatta.

Steve Orlando & Patrick Piazzalunga: Project Patron

Thirty years ago, the world watched in horror as THE PATRON, a hero sent as humanitarian aid from a different dimension, went punch for punch with WOE, a primordial beast and a perfect match for our mighty protector.

In the end, hero and villain alike fell…but the Patron returned – and continues to defend us to this day!

At least, that’s what we’ve all been told.

The truth is, the Patron died that day along with Woe.
The UN replaced the Patron with a Reploid, designed to mimic the real Patron and continue on his mission of protection.

Today, the Patron Reploid is secretly piloted by an elite team – a team prepared for anything… except for the death of one of their own.

A deep dive into the underside of the superhero mythos as only writer Steve Orlando (KILL A MAN, Midnighter, Martian Manhunter) can tell it. Illustrated by Patrick Piazzalunga (Siege, X-Factor).

Cullen Bunn & Jonas Scharf: Basilisk 1

The Chimera are five young people that possess incredible powers stemming from the five human senses.

The X-Men Omnibus 1

In 1963, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced their latest costumed creations to the burgeoning Marvel Universe. Cyclops, the Beast, Iceman, the Angel, Marvel Girl — and their leader, the mysteriously-named Professor X — were the X-Men…and little did anyone know that they would take the comic book business by storm!

Lee and Kirby billed them “The Strangest Super-Heroes of All!” and while their mutant powers were certainly weird, the binding concept of this band of heroes — a group feared and hated for being different — was pure Marvel relevance, striking at the heart of the Civil Rights battles of the time.

This Omnibus collects the earliest adventures of the X-Men as they encounter Magneto, the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the Juggernaut, Ka-Zar of the Savage Land, the Sentinels, and many more of Marvel’s greatest heroes and villains!

COLLECTING: X-Men (1963) #1-31.

Claudia Gray & Eric Zawadzki: House of El 2 – The Enemy Delusion

Welcome to a brand-new vision of one of comics’ most famous tragedies, from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray and illustrator Eric Zawadzki.

In this second book of a graphic novel trilogy, two teenagers on opposite sides of the same extinction-level event get drawn deeper into conspiracies that could doom them–if the planet doesn’t self-destruct first.

Sera is a young soldier, bred her entire life to fight for Krypton. She would die for this planet, but she’s never had the time or inclination to enjoy it.

Zahn, however, is a young scientist, full of hope and ideas for how to improve Krypton for all its citizens. And yet, the cracks in his world are beginning to appear.

In fact, both Sera and Zahn are unique in ways that will soon drive them from their destinies and toward each other–toward a cataclysmic ending to all that they once held true.

Having learned of Krypton’s possible fate, Sera and Zahn find it increasingly difficult to continue with their everyday lives.
Sera’s enhanced fighting skills may impress General Zod, but they seem to raise suspicions among her fellow soldiers.
Zahn finds it equally challenging to maintain his studies and his friendships, as he carries both the knowledge of an underground rebel group’s plans and the experiments conducted by Jor-El and Lara.

Jor-El himself attempts to alert the tribunes about the looming danger to the planet.

Neal Adams: Batman vs. Ra’s Al Ghul

Ra’s al Ghul has volunteered his own private security force to aid the GCPD, and now they are the only thing standing between nuclear terror and the townspeople.

But al Ghul’s true goal is hidden from everyone’s eyes. He will destroy the city and kill Batman — this time for good. Watching in horror is…Bruce Wayne?

Collects Batman vs. Ra’s Al Ghul issues #1-6.

Antoine Charreyron & Mario Alberti: The Wall

In a post-apocalyptic future, civilization is no more and humanity lives on looting and hacking, organizing itself into makeshift villages or caravans of roaring wrecks.

In this brutal society, a young repairman named Solal does what he can to protect his sister Eva, who suffers from a respiratory illness.
But when their medication runs out, they have only one hope: to go to the “Wall”, a gigantic impregnable enclosure guarded by monstrous robots.

Inside that fabled shelter lives a community of powerful people with the resources to help them… but all is not as optimistic as it seems…

Collecting the full dystopic trilogy created by film director Antoine Charreyron and artist Mario Alberti, THE WALL is a fast-paced survival story mixing elements of science fiction and horror in perfect blockbuster proportions.

Brimming with the nihilism of Mad Max and The Walking Dead, this gripping drama plunges us into a maelstrom of dust, rust, and blood.
A graphic feat for a wild and post-apocalyptic road movie that, in the purest tradition of the genre, questions the future of humanity and the consequences of our actions.

Hubert & Zanzim: A Man’s Skin

In Renaissance Italy, Bianca, a young lady from a good family, is of marriage age.

Her parents find her a fiancé to their liking: Giovanni, a rich merchant, young and pleasant. The wedding looks set to go smoothly even though Bianca can’t hide her disappointment at having to marry a man she knows nothing about.

But before the marriage, she learns the secret held and bequeathed by the women of her family for generations: a man’s skin!
By donning it, Bianca becomes Lorenzo and enjoys all the attributes of a young man of stunning beauty.
She can now visit the world of men incognito and get to know her fiancé in his natural environment. In her male skin, Bianca frees herself from the limits imposed on women and discovers love and sexuality.

The moral of the Renaissance then acts as a mirror to that of our century and poses several questions: why should women have a different sexuality from that of men?
Why should their pleasure and freedom be the object of contempt and coercion?

Finally, how can morality be the instrument of both severe and unconscious domination?

Tackling universal themes such as gender, sexuality, LGBTQ+, compassion, religion, and morality through a captivating and subtle fable, Hubert and Zanzim brilliantly question our relationship to gender and sexuality… but not only that. By mixing religion and sex, morality and humor, nobility and outspokenness, A Man’s Skin invites us both to the liberation of morals and to the mad and noble quest for love.

This edition includes a lesson plan and discussion guide.

Joe Ollmann: Fictional Father

A dysfunctional family lives in the shadow of a world famous comic strip and its tyrannical creator.

Caleb is a middle-aged painter with a non-starter career.

He also happens to be the only child of one of the world’s most famous cartoonists, Jimmi Wyatt. Known for the internationally beloved father and son comic Sonny Side Up, Jimmi made millions drawing saccharine family stories while neglecting his own son.

Now sober, Caleb is haunted by his wasted past and struggling to take responsibility for his present before it’s too late.
His always patient boyfriend, James, is reaching the end of his rope. When Caleb gets the chance to step out from his father’s shadow and shape the most public aspect of the family business, he makes every bad decision and watches his life fall apart.
Is it too late to repair the harm? Are we forever doomed to make the same mistakes our parents did?

Joe Ollmann is a master at portraying inner torment. His characters vacillate and sob and rage. His furrow-browed and deeply-lined cartooning has never been more expressive than in Fictional Father. Caleb storms around and slumps in equal measure as he tries to figure out who he is beyond the neglected son of a famous man.

In addition to being a devastating portrait of the Wyatt family, Fictional Father is a hilariously sardonic interrogation of art-making and cartooning in particular.

Zuo Ma: Night Bus

Journey through the countryside in this magical realist debut from an underground Chinese cartoonist.

In Night Bus, a young woman wearing round glasses finds herself on an adventurous late night bus ride that constantly makes detours through increasingly fantastical landscapes.

Meanwhile a young cartoonist returns home after art school and tries his hand at becoming a working artist while watching over his aging grandmother whose memory is deteriorating.

Nostalgic leaps take us to an elementary school gymnasium that slowly morphs into a swamp and is raided by a giant catfish. Beetles, salamanders, and bug-eyed fish intrude upon the bus ride of the round-glasses woman as the night stretches on.

Night Bus blends autobiography, horror, and fantasy into a vibrantly detailed surreal world that shows a distinct talent surveying his past.

Nature infringes upon the man-made world via gigantism and explosive abundance-the images in Night Bus are often unsettling, not aimed to horrify, but to upset the balance of modern life.

Zuo Ma is part of a burgeoning Chinese art comics scene that pushes emotion to the forefront of the story while playing with action and dreams.

Kyle Starks & Chris Schweizer: 6 Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton 1

For fans of Chew and Assassin Nation comes a new action-mystery series from Eisner Award nominees Chris Schweizer (Crogan Adventures) and Kyle Starks (Sexcastle).

The world’s most unlikable action star has been found dead and his previous TV sidekicks are looking to solve the mystery. But how can you catch a murderer when almost everyone hated the victim?

Now these sidekicks are going to learn what it means to the stars of the show…that is, if anyone of them survive the STUNTMAN WAR!

Collects THE SIX SIDEKICKS OF TRIGGER KEATON #1-6.

Seth: George Sprott 1894-1975

First serialized in The New York Times Magazine Funny Pages.

The celebrated cartoonist and New Yorker illustrator Seth weaves the fictional tale of George Sprott, the host of a long-running television program.

The events forming the patchwork of George’s life are pieced together from the tenuous memories of several informants, who often have contradictory impressions.

His estranged daughter describes the man as an unforgivable lout, whereas his niece remembers him fondly.
His former assistant recalls a trip to the Arctic during which George abandoned him for two months, while George himself remembers that trip as the time he began writing letters to a former love, from whom he never received replies.

Invoking a sense of both memory and its loss, George Sprott is heavy with the charming, melancholic nostalgia that distinguishes Seth’s work.
Characters lamenting societal progression in general share the pages with images of antiquated objects–proof of events and individuals rarely documented and barely remembered.

Likewise, George’s own opinions are embedded with regret and a sense of the injustice of aging in this bleak reminder of the inevitable slipping away of lives, along with the fading culture of their days.

Walter Scott: Wendy’s Revenge

In Wendy’s Revenge, Scott’s titular heroine returns with a fresh set of awkward misadventures and messy nights out. When the book opens, aspiring artist Wendy has decided to move to the west coast to clear her head.

She plans on getting some quality time with her collaborator and friend Winona, only to find Winona packing up to leave, having decided to move back in with her mom on the rez.

All alone, Wendy endeavours to foster community in Vancouver’s bleak art scene. When her hope and optimism are all used up, she packs her bags for an artist residency in Japan.
Wendy then gallery hops and parties around the globe until she stumbles upon the opportunity to unite with former foe Paloma. Together they enact revenge on VVURST, the German publication that once tore her performance art to shreds.

Young artists struggle with mental health issues, they get wasted and hook up with men with gross piercings, and they’re afflicted with an insatiable longing for a stable identity―stability they themselves undermine.

Scott’s deceptively simple, inky character drawings evoke millennial culture with such Jungian accuracy that you can’t help but stare and giggle in equal measure.
Praised by The New Yorker, Guardian, Globe and Mail, and with an appearance in the Best American Comics anthology, it’s clear why Walter Scott’s Wendy comics have taken critics by storm.

Gilbert Hernandez: Blubber

The great Gilbert Hernandez’s unfettered Id unleashed! Absurd, explicit, and profanely funny, Blubber makes all other comics blush.

Drawn from the first five issues of Gilbert Hernandez’s comic book series Blubber, an absurdly X-rated showcase for the most surreally transgressive of Hernandez’s short stories, weirdos (Blubberoo, Mr. Elvis, John Dick, the Mentor), creatures (the Mau Guag, Doogs, and Orlats…), and anthropomorphs (the Cloarks, the Kekeppy) visit places where most comics fear to go.

Blubber veers between an absurdist satire of porn (and occasionally nature documentaries) and a celebration of unbridled hedonism, serving as a defiant provocation to those unable to appreciate the difference between cartooning and obscenity.

As R. Crumb said, “It’s only lines on paper, folks!” It is also a howlingly funny book, filled with a rogues gallery of colorful comic book monsters (the Pollum, the Junipero Molestat, the mythical Forest Nimmy) and characters (T.A.C. Man, Mr. Hippy, Padre Puto, the Snowman, Baron Mungo, Red Tempest) that echoes the sheer visual imagination of Jack Kirby.

Rutu Modan: Tunnels

A race for the Ark of the Covenant finds an exploration into the ethics and world of the international antiquity trade.

When a great antiquities collector is forced to donate his entire collection to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Nili Broshi sees her last chance to finish an archaeological expedition begun decades earlier―a dig that could possibly yield the most important religious artifact in the Middle East.

Motivated by the desire to reinstate her father’s legacy as a great archaeologist after he was marginalized by his rival, Nili enlists a ragtag crew―a religious nationalist and his band of hilltop youths, her traitorous brother, and her childhood Palestinian friend, now an archaeological smuggler.

As Nili’s father slips deeper into dementia, warring factions close in on and fight over the Ark of the Covenant!

Backed by extensive research into this real-world treasure hunt, Rutu Modan sets her affecting novel at the center of a political crisis.
She posits that the history of biblical Israel lies in one of the most disputed regions in the world, occupied by Israel and contested by Palestine. Often in direct competition, Palestinians and Israelis dig alongside one another, hoping to find the sacred artifact believed to be a conduit to God.

Two time Eisner Award winner Rutu Modan’s third graphic novel, Tunnels, is her deepest and wildest yet. Potent and funny, Modan reveals the Middle East as no westerner could.

Ishai Mishory is a longtime New York City―and newly Bay Area―based translator and sometimes illustrator. He is currently conducting research for a PhD dissertation on 16th century Italian printing.

Philippe Girard: Leonard Cohen – On a Wire

A captivating, revealing biography of the legendary musician and poet.

Leonard Cohen opens in Los Angeles on the last night of the man’s life in 2016. Alone in his final hours, the beloved writer and musician ponders his existence in a series of flashbacks that reveal the ups and downs of a storied career.

A young Cohen traded in the promise of steady employment in his family’s Montreal garment business for the unlikely path of a literary poet.

His life took another sharp turn when, already in his thirties, he recorded his first album to widespread international acclaim. Along the way he encountered a who’s who of musical luminaries, including Lou Reed, Nico, Janis Joplin, and Joni Mitchell. And then there’s Phil Spector, the notorious music impresario who held a gun to Cohen’s head during a coke-fueled, all-night recording session.

Later in Cohen’s life, there’s the story of “Hallelujah,” one of his most famous songs, and its slow rise from relative obscurity when first recorded in the 1980s to its iconic status a decade later with covers by John Cale and Jeff Buckley.
And the period when Cohen went broke after his manager embezzled his lifetime savings, which ironically sparked an unlikely career resurgence and several worldwide tours in the 2000s.

Written with careful attention to detail and drawn with a palette of warm, lush colors by the Quebec-based cartoonist Philippe Girard, Leonard Cohen is an engaging portrait of a cultural icon.

Known for his surrealist films, his unique approach to tarot, his symbolic comics, and his shamanic therapeutic method of psychomagic, Alejandro Jodorowsky has accomplished an extraordinary amount in his more than 80 years.

In this book, we get an intimate look into the inner workings of the cult figure of Jodo.
What is revealed is a man who has evolved since his groundbreaking films of the 1970s, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, a man who has grown from a sacred trickster, a shaman of psychomagic, into a brilliant spiritual maverick of the 21st century.

We get to see Jodo’s own reflections on the rich tapestry of his remarkable life, including the initiatory failure of the Dune film project, which combined the talents of a multitude of creative greats, including Moebius, Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, and H. R. Giger.

We learn about Jodo’s years with Marcel Marceau and with great masters such as Ejo Takata, whose Zen training featured strenuous physical and mental ordeals; the sorceress Pachita, who performed psychic surgery on Jodo; and the mysterious Carlos Castaneda, whose sacred trickery reveals how intentions matter more than notions of “true” and “false.”

Discussing the Way of Kindness that he now follows, Jodo reveals how intentionally practicing small acts of generosity and goodness can have a profound effect on your spirit, infusing life with a wealth of happiness.

From sacred trickery to the path of kindness, Jodo’s radical wisdom discerns the timeless within the immediate and gauges the everyday by the measure of eternity.
