Cullen Bunn & Salva Espin: Deadpool – Back in Black

During 1984’s SECRET WARS, Deadpool was introduced to an alien symbiote who went on to become Spider-Man’s black costume and, eventually, Venom.

OK, OK, maybe that really happened in DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS. Point is, did you know that after Spider-Man rejected the costume…it went slinking back to Deadpool on the rebound? And they went on adventures together? You didn’t? Well, you will, now, thanks to this series by Cullen Bunn (The DEADPOOL KILLOGY) & Salva Espin (DEADPOOL & THE MERCS FOR MONEY)!
Ville Pirinen: Yhesti yhes kymmenennes paikas

Ville Pirisen maineikas Yhesti yhes paikas -sarja on edennyt juhlallisesti kymmenenteen osaansa.

Sen kunniaksi kirjasen koko on nyt suurempi, kannet kovemmat, sivuja enemmän ja sävyt värikkäämmät.
Sisällön ei silti pidä pelätä uudistuneen, sillä taiteilija Pirinen kokoaa yhteen sarjan taustalla vaikuttaneita teemoja ja syventää niitä jopa kolminkertaiselle metatasolle pohtiessaan syvällisiä syntyjä tarinoista ja niiden kertomisesta.

Seikkailu alkaa pikkupitäjän koviksien epäonnistuneella itsemurharisteilyllä ja jatkuu vintage-hengessä syrjätien varren vessattomalla kirpputorilla. On siinä taas ajattelemista omalle kohalle! Lopun kaksi lyhyttä tarinaa pyyhkäisevät pois ahdistuksen ja jättävät lukijalle kevyesti kivan fiiliksen.

Sari Luhtanen & Tiina Paju: Maisa & Kaarina – Viimeinen tikki

Onko Maisalle ja Kaarinalle tullut eteen viimeinen tikki?

Suorasukainen parivaljakko palaa uuden albumin myötä oleellisten ongelmien äärelle.

Anna-lehdestä tuttu huumorisarjakuva kertoo naisen arjesta oivaltavasti ja mukaansa tempaavasti.

Octavia E. Butler & Damian Duffy & John Jennings: Kindred

Octavia E. Butler’s bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format.

More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler’s mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century.

Butler’s most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South.
As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana’s own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him.

Ville Pirinen: Yhesti yhes paikas 1-3

Myöhäsyntyiset Yhesti yhes paikas -sarjan ystävät ovat jo jonkin aikaa haikailleet parin varhaisimman loppuunmyydyn osan perään.

Enää ei tarvitse elää puutteessa, sillä peräti kolme ensimmäistä Yhesti-kirjaa on nyt koottu vantteraksi yhteisniteeksi, joka sisältää mm. klassiset sattumukset uimahallin saunan notkeimmasta miehestä, sian teurastuksesta, tavattoman kovaonnisesta yläasteen voikkamaikasta, löyhyttelijästä, buutseista ja kikkailevan sekakäyttäjän erheestä.
Kaikki tyynni silkkaa hatarasti tosipohjaista tsykedeliaa, josta emme vissiin opi tasan mitään! Muutamat bonussivut täydentävät kokonaisuuden.

Jukka Tilsa: Tupelon tuplaseriffi

Tilsan tuotannon lonkerot ulottuvat alkuaikojen hervottomasta undergroundista viljavainioiden kautta kartoittamattomaan ulkoavaruuteen.

Tässä pikku kirjasessa Tilsa valloittaa villin lännen aseinaan lasso, suksi, kirves, kanuuna, suurennuslasi ja wanne-zaha.
Tupelossa käynnistyvät kaksinkertaiset tupenrapinat, kun avaruudesta pudonnut musta aukko joutuu rikollisten vääriin käsiin. Siitä alkaa pakahduttava tapahtumasarja, jollainen voi syntyä vain Eräjärven absurdistin aivosolukossa.
Lipare julkaistiin alun perin vuonna 2008 ja myytiin vikkelästi loppuun. On toisen otoksen aika!

Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez: Tales from the Darkside

Joe Hill’s nerve-shredding re-imagining of Tales from the Darkside never made it to TV… but the dead are restless and refuse to stay buried!

Adapts the episodes written by Hill and illustrated by Locke & Key co-creator Gabriel Rodriguez!

Four stories of the macabre and malevolent! One coulda-been, shoulda-been TV epic on paper with pictures that don’t move! Step out of the warm, sunlit world you think of as reality and get ready to take a chilling walk… on the DARKSIDE.

P.A. Manninen & Aura Ijäs: Pottakylän lapset

Sarjakuva pystyy viihdyttämään sekä lapsi- että aikuislukijaa, sen sanoma vain avautuu lukijan ikä- ja kokemuspohjan perusteella eri tavoin. Pottakylän lapset viittaa nimensä puolesta Astrid Lindgrenin Melukylän lapsiin, mutta on sisällöltään päivitetty versio perinteisistä lasten tarinoista nykypäivään. Se on uusi mutaatio suomalaisen huumorin evoluutiossa.

Tämän päivän lasten satumaailmat löytyvät internetistä, ja älypuhelimia naksutellaan jo päiväkoti-iässä. Pottakylän lapsissa huumori on tummasävyistä, perustuen arkisiin tilanteisiin fantasialla väritettynä. Lasten suusta kuullaan kaunistelematon totuus, kun piltit nakkelevat vanhemmilleen takaisin näiden lausumia latteuksia ja tulkitsevat muutenkin aikuisten maailmaa oman perspektiivinsä kautta.

Pikkuvanhoja lapsihahmoja on nähty sarjakuvissa paljon, mutta Pottakylän lapsien radikaalit tenavat ovat toista maata. Hirviöt eivät heitä pelota, naurun aihetta löytyy ikävämmistäkin asioista. Lapsien ja lastenmielisten ikuisesti suosimaa pissa- ja kakkahuumoria unohtamatta.

Pottakylän lapset -sarja pyrkii jäsentämään vallitsevaa kulttuurikaaosta, jossa todellisuus ja kuvitelmat ovat sekoittuneet keskenään pysyvästi, eikä mikään ole niin epätotta kuin tosi-tv. Sarjan kerrontakeinot on lainattu ikivanhoista sarjakuvista ja esimoderneista pala-animaatioista.

Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples: Saga – Kuudes kirja

Hazelin oppivuodet! Vanhemmistaan eroon joutunut Hazel yrittää parhaansa mukaan sopeutua koulutukseen Maantuntuman hoivissa.

Samaan aikaan Alana ja Marko etsivät pientä tyttöään epätoivoisesti, mutta kaikkeus on suuri paikka…

Saga on sarjakuvamaailman arvostelu- ja myyntimenestys. TV-sarjoista Lost ja Under the Dome tunnettu Brian K. Vaughan on tämän hetken maineikkaimpia ja omaperäisimpiä sarjakuvakirjoittajia.

Jesse Matilainen: Suomen suurin kommunisti

.Mitä sinä olet valmis uhraamaan vallankumouksen vuoksi? Luopuisitko perheestäsi, kotimaastasi, hengestäsi?

“Tarina perustuu tositapahtumiin ja henkilöt ovat historiallisia, mutta otin joitakin vapauksia tapahtumien kuvaamisessa, pääasiassa tiedon vähyyden, ristiriitaisuuden tai epäluotettavuuden takia”, sanoo sarjakuvaromaanin tekijä Jesse Matilainen. Suomen Suurin Kommunisti käsittelee sisällissodan jälkeen Neuvostoliittoon paenneiden punaisten kohtaloita ja heidän pyrkimyksiään käynnistää Suomessa uusi vallankumous. Kirjan ensimmäinen osa kuvaa vuosia 1918-1924 sisällissodasta Leninin kuolemaan, toinen kattaa vuodet 1932-1939 Lapuan liikkeen noususta talvisotaan.

Sarjakuvaromaanin päähenkilöt ovat idealismissaankin käytännönläheinen Hanna Malm ja hänen vastapelurinsa, Stalinin kultapoika Otto Wille Kuusinen. Heidän suhteensa paljastaa vallankumouksen alkuperäisten ihanteiden ja totalitaarisen todellisuuden karmaisevan ristiriidan. Muita keskeisiä hahmoja ovat Aino Kuusinen, Arvo “Poika” Tuominen, Tyyne Tokoi, Yrjö Sirola ja Kullervo Manner.

Valérie Mangin & Thierry Démarez: Alix Senator 2 – Viimeinen farao

Rooma vuonna 12 eKr. Keisari Augustus hallitsee yksinvaltiaana. Alix on ylittänyt 50 vuoden iän, ja hänestä on tullut senaattori.

Italiassa vallitseva rauha on vain näennäistä. Keisari on joutunut murhayrityksen kohteeksi, ja hyökkääjä väitti toimivansa Caesarin nimissä! Diktaattori on mukamas ilmestynyt Egyptiin tultuaan murhatuksi senaatissa 30 vuotta aiemmin. Alix poikineen joutuu selvittämään, onko tarina mielipuolen keksintöä, huiputusta vai totta. Retki vie heidät Aleksandrian ylellisistä palatseista aina alkupyramidin uumeniin.

Käsikirjoittaja Valérie Mangin ja piirtäjä Thierry Démarez jatkavat Verikotkissa alkanutta tarinaa.

Jul & Achdé: Lucky Luke uudet seikkailut 11 – Luvattu maa

70-vuotias sarjakuvasankari Lucky Luke sai juhlavuotensa kunniaksi tekijätiimiinsä uutta verta, sillä tuoreimman pitkän seikkailun käsikirjoituksesta vastaa nimimerkillä Jul operoiva Julien Berjeaut. Kuvittajana jatkaa vanha tuttu Achdé.

Luvattu maa vie sankarinsa seikkailulle halki Yhdysvaltojen, kun Luke saa tehtäväkseen johdattaa juutalaisen perheen St. Louisista Villiin länteen. Matka on pitkä, eikä lystikkäiltä kommelluksilta vältytä. Perinteiseen tapaan mukana on mainio kavalkadi historiallisia merkkihenkilöitä lukijan bongattavaksi.

Yann & Olivier Schwartz: Pikon ja Fantasion uudet seikkailut 13 – Mustien uhrien herra

Pikon ja Fantasion uudet seikkailut jatkuvat!

Mustien uhrien herra päättää vuonna 2014 ilmestyneessä Leopardinainen-albumissa alkaneen tarinan, mutta toimii itsenäisenä seikkailunakin.
Nostalginen tunnelmointi ja villi viidakkotoiminta vuorottelevat, kun sankariparivaljakkomme ja Spip seuraavat leopardiheimoon kuuluvaa Aniotaa Kongoon, jossa he saavat vastaansa villieläimiä, robottigorilloja, taikavoimia ja vanhan tutun kenraali Von Knochenin.

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.

Dan Abnett & Brett Booth: Titans 1 – The Return of Wally West

The members of the super-team known as the Teen Titans were heroes but, more than that, the best of friends.

A special bond held them together through even the toughest situations. Then their connection became a memory. And that memory faded, stolen from time. Only one person remembers.

His name is Wally West. Once upon a time, he was Kid Flash, but now he is a refugee from a lost universe and it’s up to him to reawaken his former friends and re-forge their bond.

Nightwing. Donna Troy. Beast Boy. Arsenal. Lilith. They must come together and defeat the enemy who destroyed their memories or be destroyed themselves.

Rob Williams: Suicide Squad 1 – The Black Vault

Assembled by the tough-as-nails intelligence expert Amanda Waller and overseen by disgraced military genius Captain Rick Flag, the men, women and monsters of the Suicide Squad-a.k.a. Task Force X-do the jobs that are too dirty for any superheroes to soil their capes with.

Their latest mission should be easy enough: recover a powerful cosmic weapon called the Black Vault from enemy hands.
The Suicide Squad always gets the job done (mostly) but this time, when the weapon’s dark influence spreads and the team is driven to madness and mayhem (more than usual), there’s only one person sane enough to save the Squad from destruction…the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn!

Petteri Tikkanen: Eka kerta

Millainen mahtaa olla Eeron eka kerta? Löytyykö tosirakkaus rakettien paukkeessa? Pääseekö Eero opiskelemaan? Olisiko hänen aika muuttaa omaan tupaan, kun isän juopottelu alkaa karata käsistä?

Petteri Tikkanen jatkaa sympaattisen Eeron elämänvaiheista kertovaa sarjaa viidennellä osalla, jossa miehen ikään ehtineen päähenkilön elämä kääntyy monin tavoin uuteen suuntaan. Albumin vahva grafiikka, levollinen kerronta ja elämänmakuinen asenne hurmaavat lukijan.

Inio Asano: Nijigahara Holograph

Fantagraphics is proud to welcome the great Inio Asano (Solanin, What a Wonderful World!) to its acclaimed literary manga line.

Even as butterflies ominously proliferate in town, the rumor of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school spreads among the children.

When the body of Arié Kimura’s mother is found by this tunnel’s entrance, next to apparently human traces, the legend seems to be confirmed.
Is the end of the world coming?
In order to appease the wrath of the beast, the children decide to offer it a sacrifice: The unfortunate Arié, whom they believe to be the cause of the curse, is shoved into a well that leads to the Nijigahara tunnel ― an act that in turns pushes Komatsuzaki, the budding thug who has carried a torch for Arié for a while already, entirely over the edge.

But this is only the beginning of the complex, challenging, obliquely told Nijigahara Holograph, which takes place in two separate timelines and involves the suicidal Suzuki; Higure, his stalkerish would-be girlfriend; and their teacher Miss Sakaki, whose heavily bandaged face remains a mystery; and many more ― brothers, sisters, parents, co-workers, teachers, aggressors and victims who are all inextricably linked to one another and all will eventually ― ten years later ― have to live with what they’ve done or suffered through.

Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo: Doctor Strange 3 – Blood in the Aether

Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese in Siberia

With this book Pratt leaves behind the short story form he’d used for twenty-one interrelated tales and presents a truly epic graphic novel.

In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Corto Maltese is engaged by the Red Lanterns―a Chinese secret society made up entirely of women―to find an armored train laden with gold that belonged to the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II.

They aren’t the only ones lusting after the treasure. The adventure, which shifts from the hidden courts of Venice to the mysterious alleys of Hong Kong, from Shanghai to Manchuria and Mongolia to Siberia, also attracts regular and irregular armies, as well as revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries.
The sweeping plot allows Pratt to fully investigate the complicated and competing motivations of his cast that includes the return of Rasputin and the introduction of the cold and dangerous Duchess Marina Seminova, the enigmatic warrior/spy named Shanghai-Lil, and historical figures such as the “Mad Baron” Roman Ungern-Sternberg, a Russian general who who sees himself as the modern-day Genghis Khan!

Greg Carpenter: The British Invasion!

Moore. Gaiman. Morrison.

They came from Northampton, West Sussex, and Glasgow, and even though they spoke with different dialects, they gave American comics a new voice — one loud and clear enough to speak to the Postmodern world.

Like a triple-helix strand of some advanced form of DNA, their careers have remained irrevocably intertwined. They go together, like Diz, Bird, and Monk… or like Kerouac, Burroughs, and Ginsberg… or like the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who.

Taken individually, their professional histories provide an incomplete picture of the British Invasion, but together they redefined the concept of what it means to be a comic book writer.
Collectively, their story becomes the story of mainstream comics in the modern era. It’s the story you’re about to read. From Sequart Organization.

Ville Solkinen: Ruma

Tämä teos ei ole kaunis. Se ei ole viimeistelty. Ihme, jos se on edes hyvä. Tämä on poikkitaiteellinen tuotos tarkoituksenaan tuijottaa asioihin, jotka ovat rumia. Se on virunut pöytälaatikossa vuosia mutta nyt on sen aika syntyä ja jättää tekijänsä rauhaan.

Joten ole hyvä ja nauti (jos kykenet) tästä teoksesta. Se sisältää lyhyitä sarjakuvia, jotka aloittaa yli kymmenen vuotta sitten tehtyyn kuunnelman käsikirjoitukseen pohjautuva Lihan tanssi. Tästä seuraa annos runoja ja lyhyitä strippejä.

Neil Gaiman’s Mr. Hero The Newmatic Man – The Complete Comics 2

Jennifer Hale’s life changed forever once she literally uncovered (in a crate at the museum) the ingenious steam and watchwork contrivance known as Mr. Hero.

She, herself, remains as full of life and humor as ever, and perhaps at first welcomed the exciting and weird adventures that came along with Mr. Hero, but now things are getting serious, and a lot darker and more dangerous.

Jennifer and Mr. Hero battle monsters, travel to a jungle world, and meet a female version of Mr. Hero. But ultimately, all roads load back to the nightmarish world of Kalighoul, the planet ruled by an insane, power-mad Teknophage!

Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick.

Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea.
As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake — and her own.

Raina Telgemeier has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible.

Shigeru Mizuki: Kitaro – Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon

Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon is the second volume in the adventures of Shigeru Mizuki’s bizarre yokai boy Kitaro and his gaggle of otherworldly friends.

These seven stories date from the golden age of Gegege no Kitaro, when Mizuki had perfected the balance of folklore, comedy, and horror that made Kitaro one of Japan’s most beloved characters.

In Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon, Kitaro and his father, Medama Oyaji, face off against one of their most powerful enemies–the self-styled Yokai Supreme Commander known as Nurarihyon.
Over the course of this volume, Kitaro takes on the swamp-dwelling Sawa Kozo, the mysterious Diamond Yokai, and the sea giant called Umizato, and wages a double feature of battles against the bizarre Odoro Odoro. Finally, Kitaro journeys to hell itself in the infamous and surreal story “Hell Ride.”

In addition to more than 150 pages of Mizuki’s all-ages monster fun, Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon includes bonus materials: “Yokai Files” that introduce Japan’s folklore monsters and a “History of Kitaro” essay by the translator Zack Davisson. If you found the world of yokai fascinating in The Birth of Kitaro, you will find even more to love in Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon!

Tom Gauld: Mooncop

The lunar colony is slowly winding down, like a small town circumvented by a new super highway.

As our hero, the Mooncop, makes his daily rounds, his beat grows ever smaller, the population dwindles. A young girl runs away, a dog breaks off his leash, an automaton wanders off from the Museum of the Moon.

Mooncop is equal parts funny and melancholy. capturing essential truths about humanity and making this a story of the past, present, and future, all in one.
Like his Guardian and New Scientist strips, as well as his previous graphic novel, Goliath, Mooncop is told with Tom Gauld’s distinctive, matter-of-fact storytelling and dry humor ― an approach that has earned him fans around the world.
