Devin Faraci & Vic Malhotra: Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me

Celebrated crime novelist Jim Thompson’s sinewy, brutal, and beloved novel comes to life in this graphic noir-novel!

In THE KILLER INSIDE ME, Thompson went where few have dared, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the evil mind of the American serial killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho. Thompson’s novel will forever be known as the masterwork of the greatest crime novelist of all time.

Lou Ford is the deputy sheriff of a small unsuspecting Texas town. The worst thing most people can say against him is that he’s a little slow and a little boring.
But most people don’t know about the sickness—the sickness that almost got Lou put away when he was younger—the psychosis that is about to surface again.

Introduction by Stephen King.

James Sturm: The Golem’s Mighty Swing

A new edition of the classic tale of a barnstorming Jewish baseball team during the great depression

By reuniting America’s greatest pastime with its hidden history, the graphic novel tells the story of the Stars of David, a barnstorming Jewish baseball team of the depression era.
Led by its manager and third baseman, the nomadic team travels from small town to small town providing the thrill of the sport while playing up their religious exoticism as a curio for people to gawk at, heckle, and taunt.

When the team’s fortunes fall, the players are presented a plan to get people in the stands. But by placing their fortunes in the hands of a promoter, the Stars of David find themselves fanning the flames of ethnic tensions.

Sturm’s nuanced composition is on full display as he deftly builds the climax of the game against the rising anti-semitic fervor of the crowd. Baseball, small towns, racial tensions, and the desperate grasp for the American Dream: The Golem’s Mighty Swing is a classic American novel.

Jilliam Tamaki: Boundless

The cartoonist of This One Summer and SuperMutant Magic Academy explores the virtual and IRL world of contemporary women via a lens both surreal and wry

Jenny becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself. Helen finds her clothes growing baggy, her shoes looser, and as she shrinks away to nothingness, the world around her recedes as well. The animals of the city briefly open their minds to us, and we see the world as they do. A mysterious music file surfaces on the internet and forms the basis of a utopian society–or is it a cult?

Boundless is at once fantastical and realist, playfully hinting at possible transcendence: from one’s culture, one’s relationship, oneself. This collection of short stories is a showcase for the masterful blend of emotion and humour of award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki

Suicide Squad Secret Files

Three of the most dangerous members of the DC Universe’s least predictable team share the spotlight in this killer collection, starring characters from the blockbuster movie!

KILLER CROC is the Suicide Squad’s biggest, baddest beast, which makes him the right monster for the job when an island full of terrifying creatures becomes a threat to the world at large. But when he’s confronted with the horrible truth of these mutant menaces, will humanity or monstrosities win in the end?

BOOMERANG is a hardcore mercenary who thinks his mission to take down a Central American dictator is just another job-but trouble has a way of returning to him like one of his trademark weapons. Alone behind enemy lines, can Boomerang make a comeback?

AMANDA WALLER may be a regular human, but she has perhaps the greatest ability of all: she understands how power works-and how to wield it. That’s how she’s kept the Squad under control and become one of the best deprogrammers of brainwashed villains. But when one of her subjects turns the tables on her, can she save the Squad from a killer who knows all their secrets?

Jason: Lost Cat

Simon Hanselmann: One More Year

Simon Hanselmann’s previous two Megg & Mogg books — 2014’s Megahex and 2016’s Megg and Mogg in Amsterdam — have both been New York Times bestsellers, and One More Year continues to cement

Hanselmann as one of his generation’s defining cartoonists. Megg the witch, Mogg the cat, and their friends Owl and Werewolf Jones are imbued with far more pathos and depth than seems plausible given the stock comic premise — drugged-out, slacker roommates.
Depressing, hilarious, and exceedingly human — despite being about a witch, a cat, and an anthropomorphic owl — One More Year continues to give more substance to the characters and personalities of its protagonists in ways that never fail to surprise, delight, and horrify.

Lynda Barry: One Hundred Demons

Inspired by a sixteenth-century Zen monk’s painting of a hundred demons chasing each other across a long scroll, acclaimed cartoonist Lynda Barry confronts various demons from her life in seventeen full-color vignettes.

In Barry’s hand, demons are the life moments that haunt you, form you, and stay with you: your worst boyfriend; kickball games on a warm summer night; watching your baby brother dance; the smell of various houses in the neighborhood you grew up in; or the day you realize your childhood is long behind you and you are officially a teenager.

Jason: On the Camino

Internationally acclaimed cartoonist Jason’s first full-length graphic memoir is about his experiences walking a 500-mile pilgrimage for his 50th birthday.

Northwestern Spain, observed with the eye of an artist, chronicling both the good (people, conversations) and the bad (blisters, bedbugs) he encountered on his journey.
Full of quiet incidents, odd encounters, small triumphs, and the occasional setback, On the Camino is the first implicitly autobiographical long-form work by a master cartoonist.

Jeff Smith: Luupäät 1 – Kevättasaus

Serkukset Leppo, Auvo ja Tahvo Luupää karkotetaan kotoaan Luumäestä Tahvon hämärien liiketoimien takia. He löytävät tiensä ihmeellisten olentojen kansoittamaan syvään, metsäiseen laaksoon…

Luupäät on maailmanlaajuista mainetta niittänyt koko perheen sarjakuva, jossa satumainen fantasia ja piinaava jännitys yhdistyvät hykerryttävään huumoriin ja taidokkaaseen piirrosjälkeen.
Sarja on saanut 10 Eisner-palkintoa ja 11 Harvey-palkintoa, ja vuonna 2005 Time-lehti kohotti Luupäät kymmenen kaikkien aikojen tärkeimmän sarjakuvaromaanin joukkoon.

Värien ansiosta mestarien paletilla on tarjolla tavallista enemmän vivahteita ja kuvittajat käyttävät lisäarsenaalinsa Villin lännen upean luonnon ja sen sankareiden uljaaseen esillepanoon.

Mauro Bosellin ja Angelo Stanon tarina Painted Desert vie meidät Arizonan karun kauneuden keskelle, jossa roistojoukon aarrejahti värjää autiomaata viattomien verellä. Armottomien konnien kintereillä on Yön Kotkan ja Tiger Jackin muodostama vieläkin armottomampi parivaljakko.

Uhka Montanassa on Gianfranco Manfredin kirjoittama jännitysnäytelmä, jossa Texin vanha ystävä pyytää apua turkiskomppanian palkkaamaa murhanhimoisten asemiesten joukkoa vastaan.
Giulio De Vita ja Matteo Vattani vastaavat talvisen verioopperan kuvituksesta.

Humppa-Lähetys 1982-1992

Haluatko tietää mitä TODELLA tapahtui vuosina 1982-1992?

Maan johtava uutislehti Humppa-Lähetys kertoo kaiken sen, mistä valtamedia syystäkin vaikenee.
Tiesitkö mm. että Ahvenanmaalla käytiin veristä sisällissotaa, Suomen ilmatilassa havaittiin vieraan vallan sukellusvene, tai että raivohullu seebuhärkä riehui Torniossa?
Entä kertoivatko uutiset miten muurari söi betonimyllynsä tai että Matti & Teppo loikkasivat Neuvostoliittoon?

Näiden kansien sisään on koottu kaikki “oleellinen” materiaali Humppiksen ajat sitten loppuunmyydyistä numeroista 1-13, häpeämättömästi uudelleeneditoituna ja julkeasti muokattuna

“Humppa-Lähetyksessä kulminoituu kaikki se hyvä, mitä ihmiskunta on viisitoistavuotisen olemassaolonsa aikana saanut aikaiseksi.”

“Humppis oli suurena apuna selvittäessäni Jön F. Kennedyn murhamysteeriä.”

– Arvo Ylpppö

– Helsinkin Sanomat

– Kim Jong Il

“Joko sumppi kiehuu?”

Buster 2

Buster oli 70-luvun lopussa ja 80-luvun alussa jalkapalloa harrastaneelle nuorisolle sarjakuvalehdistä tärkein. Busterin sivuilla seikkailleista vihreän veran sankareista suosituimmiksi nousi kaksi hyvinkin erityislaatuista superfutaria…

SUPER-MAC. Ulko-Hebridien karuilta nummilta ponnistava järkälemäinen Mac Mahony on varsinainen muurinmurtaja kentällä ja sen ulkopuolella. Hyväsydäminen ja kuumapäinen jätti teutaroi tiensä kommelluksesta toiseen ja naurattaa isänsä tuittupäisellä taustatuella lukijan vatsalihakset hyytelöksi.

PULLA. Super-Maciin verrattuna päinvastaisella tavalla järkälemäinen Kevin “Pulla” Mouse yrittää rakentaa uraa sekä aivokirurgina että jalkapalloilijana.
Teräville hoksottimille löytyy jalkapalloilun ihmeellisessä maailmassa runsaasti käyttöä lääkintätaidoisat puhumattakaan. Onhan Pullankin pelityyli ajoittain hyvinkin fyysinen…

Alex Alice: Siegfried 1

Siegfried on kolmiosainen sarja, joka on saanut innoituksensa Richard Wagnerin oopperasta Nibelungin sormus.

Tarina perustuu useisiin eri myytteihin ja jumaltaruihin, mm. skandinaaviseen Eddaan.
Tuloksena on kiehtova ja eeppinen sarjakuva jumalista, jättiläisistä ja ihmisistä.

Tarinan pääosasssa on nuori orpo Siegfried, joka on syntynyt kuolevaisen miehen ja valkyyrian rakkaudesta mutta kasvanut kääpiöiden ja susien parissa pimeässä metsässä.
Hänen sijaisvanhempansa haluaisivat elää rauhassa, mutta Siegfried janoaa tietoa oikeista vanhemmistaan ja itsensä kaltaisista.
Hän ei kuitenkaan tiedä, että ylijumala Odinilla on suunnitelmia hänen varalleen. Odin haluaa Siegfriedin taistelevan Reininkullan vartijaa, Fafnir-lohikäärmettä vastaan!

Sarjan toinen osa julkaistaan loppuvuodesta 2017 ja kolmas osa keväällä 2018.

Tome & Janry: Pikku Piko 15 – Mitä ihmisetkin sanovat!

Pitkän tauon jälkeen ilmoitamme ilouutisen!

Pikku Piko kavereineen tekee paluun sarjan 15. albumilla “Mitä ihmisetkin sanovat!”

Pikkuisen tuhma ja suuresti hauska Pikku Piko on runsaasti palkittujen tekijöiden, Tomen ja Janryn, näkemys ison seikkailija-Pikon lapsuudesta.
Supersuosittu sarja täyttää jo 25 vuotta, mutta Pikku Piko ei ole yhtään sen aikuisempi kuin tarinansa alussa. Kunnes! Identiteettikriisi iskee kesken normipäivän puuhastelujen, uimahallissa pelleilyn ja uimapukuisten tyttöjen tirkistelyn. Pikku Piko alkaa tuntea itsensä vanhaksi, ja pyytää nuorennuseliksiiriä ystävältään Mamadoulta. Mutta annostus menee pieleen ja Pikku Piko huomaakin äkkiä muuttuneensa …aikuiseksi.
Isona oleminen ei ole kovin hauskaa. Pitäisi tehdä töitä ja huolehtia itsestään, kaikenlaista mistä Pikku Piko ei yhtään tykkää. Ennen muuta lapsellista hulluttelua on vielä runsaasti tekemättä, joten on löydettävä ratkaisu palautua takaisin kahdeksan ja puolivuotiaaksi ja pysyä siinä iässä vielä hyvin pitkään.

Riad Sattouf: Tulevaisuuden arabi 3 – Lapsuus Lähi-idässä (1985-1987)

Ilmiömäiseen suosioon Ranskassa nousseen omaelämäkerrallisen Tulevaisuuden arabi -sarjan kolmannessa osassa nuoren Riadin ranskalainen äiti on saanut tarpeekseen elämästä alkeellisessa kyläpahasessa Syyriassa.

Tulevaisuuden arabi 3 kertoo Riad Sattoufin nuoruudesta 6–9-vuotiaana, joka alkaa vähitellen ymmärtää, millaisessa yhteiskunnassa hän varttuu 1980-luvun Syyriassa.
Voiko Tirma’lassa viettää joulua? Millaisia videoita myydään Homsissa pikkupojille? Oliko Conan Barbaari ympärileikattu? Entä kohdellaanko eläimiä paremmin Bretagnessa kuin syyrialaiskylässä? Ja tuleeko Riadin isästä vielä jonain päivänä suurmies Hafez al-Assadin diktatuurissa?

”Tekijän suurin saavutus on asettuminen omiin lapsuuden saappaisiinsa. Hän välttää kiusauksen jälkiviisauteen, ei selittele ja taustoittaa vain välttämättömimmän”, kirjoitti Harri Römpötti Tulevaisuuden arabi 2:sta Helsingin Sanomissa.

The Man of Steel died protecting his adopted home, leaving his allies in the Justice League to fight on without him-and leaving the older, wiser Superman of a vanished universe to pick up the torch.

But to Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the League, this new “Superman” is a stranger.
And just like Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, the rookie Green Lanterns left by Hal Jordan to guard the globe in his absence, the replacement Superman has a lot to prove.

He’d better do it quickly. Because a godlike threat unlike any the League has ever fought is coming. Vast engines of destruction are about to be unleashed, remaking the planet’s surface and forging its people into living weapons.

They are the extinction machines. And it will take every member of the Justice League to shut them down…

Noah Van Sciver: Fante Bukowski Two

The hilarious struggle continues one year after the first book as we catch up with Fante Bukowski attempting to establish himself in a new city’s literary scene, self-publishing his first zine, and coming to terms with his feelings for an old friend.

Noah Van Sciver’s newest graphic novella continues to plumb the depths of the life of the self-styled, aspiring young writer, Fante Bukowski, as he delusively bumbles his way to literary fame and fortune, one drink at a time.
Living in a cheap hotel, consorting with the debased and downtrodden, searching for that golden idea that will rocket him to the success he yearns for as the great American novelist, and to get respect from his father once and for all.
But, there’s just one problem: Fante Bukowski still has no talent for writing.

This latest book from emerging talent Van Sciver is another unique character study that mines the author’s interest in pathos and the human condition. 2015’s Fante Bukowski garnered Van Sciver a 2016 Eisner nomination for “Best Writer/Artist,” one of the major awards in the comics industry.

Yeon-Sik Hong: Uncomfortably Happily

When the gentler pace and stillness of the countryside replace the roar of the city, but your editor keeps calling.

With gorgeously detailed yet minimal art, cartoonist Yeon-Sik Hong explores his move with his wife to a small house atop a rural mountain, replacing the high-rent hubbub of Seoul with the quiet murmur of the country.

With their dog, cats, and chickens by their side, the simple life and isolation they so desperately craved proves to present new anxieties. Hong paints a beautiful portrait of the Korean countryside, changing seasons, and the universal relationships humans have with each other as well as nature, both of which are sometimes frustrating but always rewarding.

Uncomfortably Happily is translated by American cartoonist Hellen Jo from the acclaimed Manhwa Today award-winning Korean edition.

More worrying than this sordid little power trip is the disappearance of his niece, Gemma, who’s turning out to be a bit too much like her uncle for anybody’s good.
In her eagerness to learn the family trade, Gemma has gone to London and fallen in with a bad crowd, and pulling her out means that Constantine will have to join the search for a distinctly nasty magical artifact—one that shouldn’t fall into anyone’s hands, least of all those of the man determined to find it.
