Jarkko Vehniäinen: Kamala luonto – Kamalasultra
Klassinen Kamasutra unohtuu ilveksen ja kumppaneiden osoittaessa, että mikään hinduklassikko ei tätä porukkaa auta. Kamalassa luonnossa kun ei tule parittelusta eikä niin ollen hienoista seksiasennoistakaan yhtään mitään.
Yhä useammat jo tuntevatkin porukan: ilves ja kärppä, jotka ilahtuvat jokakeväisistä paritteluajatuksista, vaikka itse touhusta ei ole kokemusta. Epäonninen hirvi, joka on valmis seurustelemaan vaikka hippiäisen kanssa, kunhan saisi vain jakaa ylitsevuotavaa rakkauttaan. Ja niin edelleen, tässä metsässä ainoa taatusti lisääntyvä laji ovat jänikset, joista suurin osa kuitenkin päätyy parempiin suihin. Ei ole helppoa, mutta hauskaa kyllä – ainakin sarjan uskollisella ja kasvavalla ystäväjoukolla.
Kamalasutra liittyy Jarkko Vehniäisen Kamala luonto -sarjan teemakirjojen asiaviihteelliseen joukkoon. Seksuaaliset ilot ja harmit ovat luomakunnan keskeisiä puheenaiheita kaikkina aikakausina ja kaikissa kulttuureissa, suhtauduttiinpa asioihin avoimesti tai peitellymmin.

In pure Joe Matt fashion, this comic is hilarious, sweet, and a little dirty.

Kohtalokkaassa ennustuksessa sokea bangladeshilainen eukko ennustaa viidakkosairaalan lääkärille, että Modesty Blaise pelastaa tämän huumekauppiaiden kynsistä. Ennustuksen synkkä puoli on, että Modesty saa surmansa, ellei joku uhraa henkeään…

Adam Rapp & Mike Cavallaro: Decelerate Blue
The future waits for no one.
In this new world, speed and efficiency are everything, and the populace zooms along in a perpetually stimulated haze. Angela thinks she’s the only person in her family―maybe the only person on the planet―who sees anything wrong with this picture. But the truth is she’s not alone.
Angela finds herself recruited into a resistance movement where the key to rebellion is taking things slow. In their secret underground hideout, they create a life unplugged from the rapid-fire culture outside. Can they free the rest of the world before the powers that be shut down their utopian experiment?
From revolutionary and award-winning playwright Adam Rapp and veteran cartoonist and animator Mike Cavallaro comes Decelerate Blue, a dark, breath-taking new vision of an all-too-plausible future for America.
Featuring over a dozen literary comic shorts by acclaimed cartoonist Noah Van Sciver.
Whether in his fiction (Fante Bukowski) or nonfiction (The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln), Van Sciver has carved a niche as a keen observer of the human condition, exploring the decisions people make that make, break, and define them.
Disquiet showcases the best of his short work, including: “The Death Of Elijah Lovejoy,” the story of the midwestern abolitionist in the 1830s who published a radical newspaper that denounced slavery and provoked local mobs to destroy his printing presses; “The Lizard Who Laughed,” a painfully dysfunctional reunion between an absent father and his adult son; and “Punks V. Lizards,” an anarchic and darkly comic piece of absurdity that blends Quadrophenia with Jurassic Park.
As writer/musician Robin Edwards (Lisa Prank) notes in her introduction, “The stories in this book run all over the place … What comes through is wholeheartedly Noah: anxious and funny and depressed and weird and brilliant.”

Muse’s sadistic art installations will strike close to home — and there’s nothing Matt can do about it!

Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch.
Mogg is her black cat.
Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl.
They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones.

Ron Regé Jr.: The Cartoon Utopia
Ron Regé, Jr. is a very unusual yet accomplished storyteller whose work exudes a passionate moral, idealistic core that sets him apart from his peers.
The Cartoon Utopia is his Magnum Opus, a unique work of comic art that, in the words of its author, “focuses on ideas that I’ve become intrigued by that stem from magical, alchemical, ancient ideas & mystery schools.”
It’s part sci-fi, part philosophy, part visual poetry, and part social manifesto. Regé’s work exudes psychedelia, outsider rawness, and pure cartoonish joy.
In The Cartoon Utopia, “Utopians” of the future world are attempting to send messages through consciousness, outside of the constricts of time as we understand it.
They live in a world of advanced collective consciousness and want to help us understand how to achieve what they have accomplished. They get together to perform this task in a way that evolved out of our current system of consuming information and entertainment. In other words, the opposite of television.
Instead, these messages appear in the form of art, music and storytelling.
Ron Regé Jr.: What Parsifal Saw
What Parsifal Saw collects work produced by artist Ron Regé, Jr. following the release of 2012’s acclaimed opus, The Cartoon Utopia (which is being re-released in paperback this season).
Regé’s interest in esoteric ideas and spirituality has permeated into all aspects of his work, as highlighted by “Cosmogenesis,” his adaptation of selections from the writings of 19th century occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.
“Cosmogenesis” concerns the magical, alchemical, ancient, and mysterious ideas that strongly influenced The Cartoon Utopia as well. Regé’s work continues to a cosmic consciousness, psychedelia, outsider rawness, and pure cartoonish joy.
Eartha is Cathy Malkasian’s fourth graphic novel — a metaphorical fable that resonates with contemporary themes.
For a thousand years the unfinished dreams from the City Across the Sea came to Echo Fjord to live out their lives.
Sex fantasies, murder plots, wishful thinking, and all manner of secrets once found sanctuary in Echo Fjord. Emerging from the soil, they took bodily form and wandered the land, gently guided by the fjord folk who treasured their brief and wondrous lives.
But recently, city dreams have stopped coming to Echo Fjord, and without their ethereal tourists the fjord folk suddenly feel lost. Has their ancient way of life ended for good? Has something happened to the city? Are all the dreamers gone?
One of Echo Fjord’s inhabitants wants answers: The story’s eponymous protagonist Eartha wants to visit the City Across the Sea, but how will she get to a place no one’s gone to for a thousand years? The city isn’t on any map, or in anyone’s memory.
Without thought or hesitation she ventures into the limitless waters, hoping to find the City and solve the mystery.
A man and his girlfriend go to visit his family, only to find their home destroyed and his father Frankensteining his siblings.
What’s going on? The couple is about to discover that nothing is as it seems: not their bodies; not the structures they inhabit (there are no doors); and not the police that wander in and out of their lives.
And, no matter how many armed standoffs and car chases there are, you can never escape your parents — or the dead body under the kitchen table.
Drawn in a slashing pen and ink style with raw crosshatching and heavy blacks, the author’s German Expressionist-influenced visual approach adds to the intense, claustrophobic feel of the work, like a graphic novel collaboration between Gary Panter and Edvard Munch. Based on the author’s dreams, The Excavation’s surreal verisimilitude recalls cult films like The Forbidden Zone and Eraserhead.

In the sky, strange bright triangles appear, bearing mysterious messages from an extraterrestrial civilization. Dora, his young patient, is part of the “New” Convention, a movement of young people preaching free love and alternative models to coupling and family.
She declares that her telepathic abilities can parse the signal — a warning of some kind. Initially skeptical, Raniero’s curiosity and attraction grows.
There’s an absence of authority in the town of Alexandria, and the teens are trying to keep their makeshift society together until their parents return.
But students keep dying mysteriously, local band The Crotchmen rock the nights away, freshmen palm readers and seers have lines out the door, and Ben Schiller has had it up to HERE with her sister Empathy’s disappearing act.
It’s a punk summer vacation that might not make it to fall.

Containing two stand-alone series, enjoy A Spoon Too Short and The Interconnectedness of All Kings. But that’s not all! Also includes bonus material showing a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the DIRK GENTLY TV show.
In A Spoon Too Short, Dirk finds himself investigating a bizarre case of poaching, dumbstruck tourists, and the inner membranes of a rhinoceros’ nose.
In The Interconnectedness of All Kings, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers.
All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.

“PYYKKIPÄIVÄ” – noin 12-sivuinen kertomus siitä miksi Tuoli lopetti työnteon ja jättäytyi toimeentulotuen varaan.
In ‘My Hot Date’, Noah delivers a great autobiographical comic.

Another wonderful issue of Blammo from the prolific Noah Van Sciver.

The monk is working to complete the tower’s fifth stained glass window, and Amara tells the stories the window could tell with a subtle beauty.
Combining the best of the underground sensibilities – questions about the meaning of the universe, positivism/negativism, and what are aliens REALLY up to – with none of the macho garbage that makes so many of the undergrounds simply unreadable.
Powerman tells the story of a meglomaniac who may or may not come to terms with himself and his family, and like all of Box’s work, Powerman will at times crack you up, at times make you cringe, and in the end will make you feel compassion.
Emi Gennis delivers the incredible story of Annie Edson Taylor, the first person to go over Niagara Falls and live.
Instead of fame and fortune, however, Annie finds herself adrift in the world with few options and no support.
British cartoonist Simon Moreton delivers another powerhouse of quiet elegance in this story of youth, friendship, nostalgia, and nature.
Elegantly rendered, Moreton’s comics read as much as visual poetry as they do comics.

Kirjan tapahtumat ovat monille totta tälläkin hetkellä.
Bill Schelly: Man of Rock – A Biography of Joe Kubert
Joe Kubert’s extraordinary career spans the history of the comic book in America: he began drawing comics in 1938, just as Superman made his debut in Action Comics #1, and continues to be one of the most vital cartoonists working today, writing and drawing both mainstream comic book characters as well as, more recently, graphic novels of his own conception.
Kubert made his name working for DC Comics on acclaimed series starring Sgt. Rock of Easy Co., Hawkman, Tarzan, and has worked on many of DC’s most commercially successful properties (Superman, Batman, Flash, et al.). Kubert has created comics for virtually every major publisher over an incredible 70 years in the business, including Marvel and EC.
He started the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in the 1980s.
In the 1990s, he wrote and drew his own graphic novels, including Fax from Sarajevo, which won the Will Eisner Comics Industry Award for Best Graphic Novel.
He was subsequently inducted into both the Harvey Awards’ Jack Kirby Hall of Fame and the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
Glen Weldon: The Caped Crusade – Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture
“A roaring getaway car of guilty pleasures” (The New York Times Book Review), Glen Weldon’s The Caped Crusade is a fascinating, critically acclaimed chronicle of the rises and falls of one of the world’s most iconic superheroes and the fans who love him—now with a new afterword.
Since his debut in Detective Comics #27, Batman has been many things: a two-fisted detective; a planet-hopping gadabout; a campy Pop Art sensation; a pointy-eared master spy; and a grim ninja of the urban night.
Yet, despite these endless transformations, he remains one of our most revered cultural icons. In this “smart, witty, and engrossing” (The Wall Street Journal) cultural critique, NPR contributor and book critic Glen Weldon provides “a sharp, deeply knowledgeable, and often funny look at the cultural history of Batman and his fandom” (Chicago Tribune) to discover why it is that we can’t get enough of the Dark Knight.
For nearly a century, Batman has cycled through eras of dark melodrama and light comedy and back again. How we perceive his character, whether he’s delivering dire threats in a raspy Christian Bale growl or trading blithely homoerotic double entendres with Robin the Boy Wonder, speaks to who we are and how we wish to be seen by the world. It’s this endless adaptability that has made him so lasting, and ultimately human.
But it’s also Batman’s fundamental nerdiness that uniquely resonates with his fans and makes them fiercely protective of him.
As Weldon charts the evolution of Gotham’s Guardian from Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s hyphenated hero to Christopher Nolan’s post-9/11 Dark Knight, he reveals how this symbol of justice has made us who we are today and why his legacy remains so strong. The result is “possibly the most erudite and well-researched fanboy manifesto ever” (Booklist). Well-researched, insightful, and engaging, The Caped Crusade, with a new afterword by the author, has something for everyone: “If you’re a Bat-neophyte, this is an accessible introduction; if you’re a dyed-in-the-Latex Bat-nerd, this is a colorfully rendered magical history tour redolent with nostalgia” (The Washington Post).
