KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Christian Debarre: Joe Bar Team 1

Pariisin esikaupunkialueella majailee romanttista yksilöllisyyttä sekä moottoripyöriä palvova joukko, joka kokoontuu epäsäännöllisen säännöllisesti Joe Bar:iin pätemään omalla erikoisella tavallaan.

Koska he voivat.

Toiminta on ensimmäisten superpyörien aikana raakaa ja rehellistä ja ah! niiin vauhdikasta ja sitoutunutta.

Ja aina löytyy syy hiukan kisata…

Tiina Paju: Uutisista hyvää iltaa

UUTISISTA HYVÄÄ ILTAA kertoo korona-ajasta television uutistoimituksen nurkasta nähtynä. Näkijä on uutislähetysten taustakuvia toimittava graafikko, jonka pesti alkoi juuri, kun korona lähti valloitusretkelleen maailman halki.

Töiden ja elämän pyörteistä piirtyy mediamuistojen sävyttämä ajankuva. Uusissa tehtävissä on paljon opittavaa.
Ihmeteltävää riittää myös maailman, kaupungin ja kotiolojen muutoksissa. Jollain tavalla kuitenkin aina selvitään, ystävyyden ja työtoverien kannattelemana.

Käsikirjoittaja ja piirtäjä Puupää-hatulla palkittu sarjakuvantekijä, kuvittaja ja visuaalinen journalisti, jonka piirtämiä sarjakuvia ovat mm. Maisa & Kaarina ja Biljoona Oy. Uutisista hyvää iltaa on ensimmäinen albumi, jonka hän on myös käsikirjoittanut.

Stéphane Deteindre: Joe Bar Team 2

Aikaa kuluu 20 vuotta – mikään ei ole enää entisensä…paitsi asenne.

Pyörät päivittyvät uuteen – nahkatakit ja äijät eivät.

Aivan kuin kaikki alkaisi kiertää kehää, uutta sukupolvea pukkaa kadulle, väärällä asenteella tietysti!

.

Jyrki Nissinen: Exät

Vivians, Simo, Uroz ja Hemppe elävät tahoillaan urakeskeistä elämää johon kuuluu biletystä, deadlineja, seksiä ja harmoniaa.

Kaikki tuntuu olevan ok. He kaikki ovat toistensa exiä.

Mutta miltä vitulta homma alkaa tuntumaan, kun heidät kaikki pestataan samaan produktioon? Kuka vetää pisimmän korren ja kuka on pelkkä luuseri?

Exät on viiltävän realistinen pala draamaa stadin luovan luokan jet set -elämästä, joka tarjoillaan kylmänä. Kun kortsupaketin hinnalla saa paikan taivaassa, ei vaihtoehtoja enää ole!

“Täysin vakavien ja totaalisen dorkien asioiden samanaikaisuus toistuu teoksen sisällössä ja muodossa. Exät pyörittelee ihan oikeita aikuisten kysymyksiä nopeatempoisen hupailunsa avulla.
Vaikutus on suunnilleen sama kuin jos Pulttibois olisi pintansa alla viiltävän tarkkanäköinen, yhteiskunnallisia trendejä pöyhivä aikalaissatiiri.” – Ville Pirinen, Kulttuuritoimitus

“Nissinen pyörittää hätkähdyttävää korkkiruuvia lukijan kloaakkiin.” – Keijo Ahlqvist.

When the time counts down to zero, supernatural beings manifest to condemn you to hell. As the nation falls into unrest, a new religious sect begins to interpret the bizarre occurrence as the will of the divine.

Amid social chaos and increasing hysteria, the people must find a way to survive this inexplicable terror.

Within the safety of the walls, youths are raised in a nursery-style setting by robots. While life there may appear stale on the surface, the children are full of potential and curiosity.

The outside world is a hell-scape. It is almost entirely void of anything mechanical and is now inhabited by bizarre, yet powerful super-natural beings.

Mutta entä, jos tällä kertaa prinssi olisikin… prinsessa?

Satumaailmassa, jossa kuningattaret hallitsevat ja magia on valtaa, prinsessa Amaltea lähetetään elämänsä suurimman haasteen eteen – pelastamaan pulassa oleva prinssi ja täyttämään velvollisuutensa prinsessana.
Hemmoteltu, ennakkoluuloinen ja maailmalta suojassa kasvanut Amaltea lähtee vastahakoisesti matkalleen ja löytää “prinssinsä pulassa”… vain saadakseen selville, ettei tämä olekaan järin halukas liittymään hänen seuraansa.

Natalia Batistan uusi fantasiaseikkailu on huima matka täynnä toimintaa, huumoria ja rakkautta!

Seitsemäs ratkiriemukas Koiramies-sarjiskirja.
Jaana Kapari-Jatan kekseliäs suomennos.

Keijo Ahlqvist: Taide (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 7.3.2022.

Taide on taiteen tekemisen pieni filosofinen opas, taiteen luennan lyhyt ja pitkä oppimäärä, aforistinen, uniikki, ruuduton ja rajaton sarjakuvateos.

Taide on itsereflektiivinen, vallaton valtaus, vapauttava tapahtuma ja vaurautta tiiviydessään. Taide on Keijo Ahlqvistin kolmas oma sarjakuvakirja, elämänmittaisen ajattelutyön kypsä hedelmä.

Piirtäjänä Keijo Ahlqvist (s. 1955, edelleen elossa) on suuri pelkistäjä. Hän tiivistää oleellisen muutamilla viivoilla, eikä sanojakaan tuhlailla. Lopputulos patistaa lukijaa ajattelemaan (myös) itse.

Sarjakuvaneuvoksen arvonimellä palkittu Ahlqvist piirsi Kemissä kunnalliskertomuksia sarjakuvamuotoon, kunnallispoliittista Kemistit-sarjakuvaa Sortteeriin ja laati yhdessä Ari Kutilan kanssa ensimmäisen suomalaisen sarjakuvan oppikirjan Piirrä sarjakuvaa! (1988).

Vuonna 2000 Ahlqvist oli perustamassa Limingan taidekouluun sarjakuvalinjaa.
Hän opetti siellä vuoteen 2017 asti, vaikka välillä kirjautui kouluun opiskelijaksi: ensin 2009 kuvataidelinjalle ja 2015 omalle sarjakuvalinjalleen. Ahlqvistille ominaista on pyrkiä tutkimaan asioiden kaikki puolet.

Hiljaiselo omien teosten suhteen loppui vuonna 2019, jolloin Ahlqvistin sarjakuvia julkaistiin kahtena kirjana, K ei joo (Täysi Käsi) ja Kaunakirja (Zum Teufel). Eläkkeelle jäämisensä jälkeen Ahlqvistin uteliaisuus todellisuuden olemuksesta ei ole sammunut. Päinvastoin, lakkaamattoman pohdiskelun tuloksia piirtyy paperille hurjaa tahtia.

Keijo Ahlqvistin mukaan taide ei ole ensisijaisesti ammatti eikä varsinkaan palkkatyö. Taide on vapaus, joka kuuluu kaikille. Taide elää meissä kaikissa, kunhan sen antaa elää.

Maikki Harjanne: Täydellinen Minttu – Kaikki Minttu-sarjakuvat (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 23.3.2022.

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.

Mikko Metsähonkala: Talleyrand – Sontaa silkkisukassa, sanoi Napoleon (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 23.3.2022.

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.

Tuula Mäkelä: Rappuset (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 23.3.2022.

Miltä hirvestä tuntuu, kun se pudottaa sarvensa? Miltä maistuu härän mahalaukku? Tietävätkö sirpaleet onnea? Mitä Katri Helena laulaa Lui-nimisessä kappaleessa? Onko taivaalla mustia aukkoja?

Aitta oli ollut pihassa aina.
Ala-aitassa oli moottorisaha ja Fiatin talvirenkaat.

Yläaitassa säilytettiin kaikkea jännää muistoina ja kaiken varalta.

Rappuset on kertomus isän ja tyttären yhteisestä kesäpäivästä, jonka aikana korjataan aitan rappusten rikkoutunut askelma. Päivä vaikuttaa aluksi aivan tavalliselta, mutta sen mittaan saadaan vastaus moneen kysymykseen.

Tuula Mäkelä on Kyyjärvellä vuonna 1979 syntynyt ja kasvanut sarjakuvantekijä, joka opettaa graafista suunnittelua Ikaalisten käsi- ja taideteollisuusoppilaitoksessa.
Talvisin hän tykkää tehdä pahkatöitä ja kesäisin pelastaa kimalaisia ynnä muita uimataidottomia veden varasta.

Rappuset on hänen ensimmäinen sarjakuvakirjansa.

Juliana Hyrri: Päivänkakkarameri (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 23.3.2022.

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.

Alessandro Ferrari & Kawaii Studio: Star Wars – Tasavallan viimeiset päivät (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 18.5.2022.

Imperiumin vauhdikkain sarjakuvaromaani!

Tästä kaikki alkoi.

Pimeän uhka, Kloonien hyökkäys ja Sithin kosto samoissa kansissa.

Alice Oseman: Heartstopper 1 – Poika tapaa pojan (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 6.6.2022.

Poika tapaa pojan. Pojista tulee ystävät. Pojat rakastuvat.

Sydämen sulattava sarjakuvaromaani ystävyydestä ja tunnemyrskystä, jonka vain ensirakkaus voi synnyttää.

Charlie ja Nick käyvät samaa koulua ja tapaavat yhteisellä kurssilla. Charlien sydän on pysähtyä, kun hän näkee Nickin ensi kerran, ja rakastuu päätä pahkaa.
Vaikka Charlien järki sanoo, ettei heidän välillään voi koskaan olla mitään ystävyyttä enempää, hän ei voi tunteilleen mitään. Voisiko Nick sittenkin olla vähän kiinnostunut Charliesta…?

Heartstopper-sarjassa käsitellään ystävyyttä, rakkautta ja rohkeutta olla oma itsensä. Charlien ja Nickin polut kietoutuvat yhteen ja muodostavat suuremman tarinan, joka ei jätä ketään kylmäksi

Kirjailija-kuvittaja Alice Oseman syntyi Kentissä Englannissa 1994.
Hänen esikoisromaaninsa Solitaire julkaistiin, kun hän oli vasta 19-vuotias. Myöhemmin Osemanilta on ilmestynyt myös kolme muuta nuorten aikuisten romaania.
Syksyllä 2016 nettisarjakuvina alkanut Heartstopper oli hänen läpimurtonsa, ja nyt Charlien ja Nickin tarinaa kuvataan myös Netflix-sarjaksi.

Dav Pilkey: Kisuliin sarjiskerho – Perspektiivejä (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 25.8.2022.

Kisuliin sarjiskerhossa opetellaan paitsi piirtämään ja tekstaamaan, myös ymmärtämään muita.

Hyppää mukaan tekemään hassuja, hauskoja ja jännittäviä sarjiksia

Koiramiehestä tuttu kiltti ja sympaattinen Kisulii jatkaa sarjiskerhon pitämistä vauvasammakoille ja muille halukkaille.
Kaikki saavat yrittää ja onnistua. Viimeksi opeteltiin muun muassa haikujen tekoa, nyt vuorossa on perspektiivin etsiminen.

Miltä maailma näyttää kaverin tai vihamiehen näkökulmasta? Siitäkin voi tehdä sarjiksen.

Martin Widmark & Helena Willis: Sarjakuvamysteerit – Lasse-Maijan etsivätoimisto (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

Suomen suosituimmat lapsietsivät nyt sarjakuvakirjassa!
Sotkuja teatterissa ja käsipallokentällä!

COLLECTING: Winter Guard (2021) #1-4.

Julie Doucet: Dirty Plotte – The Complete Julie Doucet

An enduring collection of revolutionary comics from a genre-transforming and critically acclaimed cartoonist.

Julie Doucet arrived in comics in the 1990s as a fully formed cartoonist.

Her comic book series Dirty Plotte was visionary both for the medium and for storytelling.
Her stories are candid, funny and intimate, plumbing the depths of the female psyche while charting the fragility of the men around her.

Her artwork is dense and confident, never wavering in the wit and humour of its owner.
Doucet was active in comics for fifteen years before she moved on to other mediums. Her influence casts a long shadow over the medium, Dirty Plotte is quite simply one of the most iconic comic book series to have ever been created.

Dirty Plotte: The Complete Julie Doucet collects the entire comic book series, including the acclaimed My New York Diary, as well as rare comics and previously unpublished material; a reproduction of the first Dirty Plotte mini comic; essays about her comics legacy and feminist influence by curator Dan Nadel and academic Martine Delvaux respectively; an interview by comics scholar Christian Gasser; and personal anecdotes from Jami Attenberg, Adrian Tomine, and more.

Doucet uses the covers of this two-book box set to present an all-new comic that explores her complicated relationship with femininity and the importance of her relationships with female readers. Astonishingly honest, brutal, and funny, Dirty Plotte is a revelatory journey into a legendary cartoonist’s oeuvre.

Jacques Tardi: The True Story of the Unknown Soldier

Mad geniuses, Jules Verne-style deliriums, dinosaurs, sex, bloodshed, and the madness of World War I — two strange and surreal early works by a master of the comics form.

Fantagraphics presents two experimental, early works by the French cartooning legend Tardi.
These comics, created in the mid-’70s, provide a fascinating preview of the masterworks of his prolific career. While they are not narratively linked, an eerie sense of foreboding suffuses stories in this collection: they both depict sex and brutal violence and condemn the horrors of war.

The True Story of the Unknown Soldier follows a pulp novelist turned soldier who, driven to delirium amidst the trenches of WWI, becomes tormented by visions of his own seedy creations.

This stream-of-consciousness tale visualizes the tortured psyche of its protagonist through dazzling dreamscapes and surreal scenarios.

In The National Razor, a soldier returns from war a shattered man.
Drowning himself in drink, he wanders the streets of Paris without purpose; in this numb stupor, he finds himself caught up in strange situations, lashes out in unexpectedly violent ways, and ultimately meets with a bloody end.

At once a visceral depiction of the trauma wrought by war and a powerful denunciation of the death penalty and France’s iconic guillotine.

Represent!

Celebrating powerful voices: Represent! collects the revolutionary digital-first series!

New voices present relevant, topical visions of social change and personal histories, some true-to-life while others are semi-fictionalized accounts of real experiences.

Jules, a Black teenager, is given a pair of old binoculars as he heads out for a morning of birdwatching in Central Park. He soon learns the binoculars show him a lot more than birds, and maybe they keep him safe, too.

Jesse Holland’s Mississippi farm has been in his family since their first ancestor was freed from slavery, tended by his grandfather and his father before him.
But as Jesse grows into a man, he’s unsure if a patch of land in the Piney Woods and a life of tilling soil is his true destiny. But destiny can mean so much more than dirt and a tractor.

Lanice’s passion for cooking and desire for a career in the culinary arts are challenged by the source of her inspiration, her father, who is concerned about his only daughter working in a kitchen, like so many Black Americans before her.

These stories and more all have one thing in common: innovative styles and compelling stories that examine how our culture builds understanding, tracing society’s arc toward justice as we evolve in pursuit of a more just and compassionate world.

Matteo Mastragostino & Paolo Castaldi: Vann Nath – Painting the Khmer Rouge

The true story of the Cambodian painter Vann Nath, who used his art to fight against barbarism and tyranny.

In 1978, a young painter named Vann Nath was arrested by the Khmer Rouge, the violent and totalitarian Communist Party of Kampuchea that ruled Cambodia from 1975 to 1979.

Imprisoned in the infamous Tuol Sleng prison, better known as S-21, painting became synonymous with survival for him.

Tomi Ungerer: The Party

Tomi Ungerer eviscerates the 1 percent in this series of cartoon vignettes (a proto-graphic novel) that are unfortunately as relevant now as the time they were drawn and shall remain so forever and ever.

Created in the 1960s, The Party takes place in the Hamptons.

It’s attended by captains of industry, tycoons, magnates, moguls, and various undistinguishable fat cats, luxuriating in their tuxedos, evening gowns, and prattling small talk.

The depiction of one grotesquerie after another — often couples — cavorting through the haze of booze and caviar, with the occasional wanton display of sybaritically libidinal impulse.

Ungerer accompanies each full-page image with a hilarious, hand-lettered caption, which provides the characters’ names and a brief deadpan description of their social standings, creating a dissonance between image and text.

Jean-Patrick Manchette & Jacques Tardi: Streets of Paris, Streets of Murder 1

The first of two volumes presenting all of the world-renowned hardboiled crime graphic novels (one of which has never before been collected in English!) in a luxurious oversize format.

Griffu is soon ensnared in a deadly web of sexual betrayal, real estate fraud, and murder.

In West Coast Blues, a young sales executive goes to the aid of an accident victim, and finds himself sucked into a spiral of violence involving an exiled war criminal and two hired assassins.

This volume also offers a bonus, 21-page unfinished story by Manchette and Tardi, as well as a single page introduction to another incomplete story, both appearing in English for the first time.

Steve Skroce: Post Americana

From MAESTROS creator, WE STAND ON GUARD co-creator, and The Matrix storyboard artist STEVE SKROCE with coloring by Eisner Award-winning DAVE STEWART.

The Cheyanne mountain installation, aka The BUBBLE, is the most sophisticated super bunker in the world.

It was built to ensure the survival of America’s executive branch of government and its most important citizens, should the unthinkable happen.

When the world ended, the executive branch failed to reach the sanctuary, but the elite citizenry did.
Eighty years later, one of their own has named himself the new President of the United States. His plan? Subjugate the survivors of the American Wasteland using the same bunker resources meant to rebuild it.

The only thing standing in their way is a deadly Wasteland girl, hellbent on revenge!

Collects POST AMERICANA #1-7.

In Run Like Crazy, Run Like Hell, philanthropist Michael Hartog hires Julie, just out of a psychiatric asylum, as a nanny. But he plans to fake the kidnapping of his son, Peter — and frame Julie for it.

But Julie is no pushover, and soon, Julie and Peter are on the run, pursued by the police, and by Hartog’s enforcer, the hulking contract killer, Thompson.

Druuna will ultimately find out that what she is seeking lies deep in her own heart.

Charlier & Giraud: Blueberry – Apaches (K)

KÄYTETTY.

Au sortir de la guerre de Sécession, le lieutenant Blueberry n’est plus qu’une épave.

Véritable tête brûlée, rien ne compte plus pour lui que l’alcool et la bagarre ! C’est ainsi que, à moitié soûl, il regagne sa première affectation dans un fort de l’Ouest menacé par les Apaches.
Rebelle à toute autorité, il ne cesse de se heurter aux autres militaires et aux colons, trop prompts à « casser de l’Indien ». D’ailleurs, lorsque Blueberry rencontre Geronimo qu’il doit combattre, il se lie rapidement à lui par une étrange fascination réciproque. Au point que le chaman apache sera véritablement à l’origine de sa métamorphose et de la naissance du personnage que l’on connaîtra ultérieurement. Jean Giraud offre un cadeau à tous ses fans ! En effet, dans son dernier cycle, Mister Blueberry, il avait mis en scène, sous forme de flashs-back fragmentés, la confession de Blueberry, narrant cette première rencontre quinze ans auparavant avec Geronimo, l’homme-sorcier des Apaches. C’est ce « récit dans le récit » que redonne aujourd’hui cet album hors série, en le dégageant de tous les épisodes annexes du célèbre duel de OK Corral. Mais entre-temps, Jean Giraud a fourni un travail considérable sur cette « oeuvre rénovée », afin de réordonner ce puzzle et d’assurer sa continuité dramatique. Il livre ainsi une aventure d’une force et d’une cohérence remarquables qui jette une splendide lueur sur la genèse du lieutenant, puisque chronologiquement cet épisode se situe juste avant Fort Navajo, le premier volume de la saga Blueberry..
