Will Volley: The Opportunity

A modern-day Death of a Salesman, this thrilling debut graphic novel casts a spotlight on the unforgiving world of door-to-door selling.

Colin is an ambitious door-to-door salesman on the verge of ‘making it’ as the owner of his own sales office. And the future is looking good.

But when the terms of his promotion change without warning, Colin and his team find themselves with just five days to achieve a new sales target – and to prevent his rival, Paul, from being promoted in his stead.
Colin has to keep his disgruntled team from ‘negging out’ while a gang of ruthless debt collectors are getting even closer. Of course, everything is going to be fine, more than fine, in fact. Meanwhile, he runs out of coins in the phone box and the boss isn’t taking his calls.

As Colin’s grasp on reality dissolves, we see how the relentless focus on positive thinking – in the face of exploitative management, pay and conditions – leads to delusion, vulnerability, failure and, finally, human tragedy.

Set amidst the rain-lashed estates of southern England, The Opportunity is a darkly disturbing, stylish and compelling character study, set to become a classic of graphic noir.

Verkostoja ja verikostoja! Edes maailman mahtavimmat sankarit eivät pysty jatkuvasti suojelemaan koko planeettaa. Tästä syystä Oikeuden Puolustajat eli Teräsmies, Batman, Ihmenainen, Salama, Kyborgi ja Vesimies avaavat rivinsä etsiessään uusia jäseniä.

Juba: Viivi & Wagner – Wow, a pig in my bed! (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Viivi & Wagner is a comic strip about a girl whose boy friend is a pig.
A REAL pig, not just your ordinary beer-guzzling couch potato (couch cutlet?).

The strength of the strip is in the acute and insightful observations on the relationship dynamics of the prim and proper Viivi and the not-so Wagner. The success of Viivi & Wagner is unique in the history of Finnish comics.
The first strip was published in October 1997 – and now, only some twenty years and over 5,700 strips later this first Viivi & Wagner book in English collects a selection of daily strips from the early years of the comic!
Disclaimer: NOT a relationship guide.

Introduction by Gilbert Shelton.

Pertti Jarla: Rivo-Riitta (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Fingerpori-sarjakuvan alkuajoista lähtien on näyttävä kahvilaemäntä Rivo-Riitta ollut sarjan suosituin hahmo. Hahmojen menestystä mitanneissa Fingerporin kunnallisvaaleissa Riitta voitti ylivoimaisesti, keräten yli kolmasosan annetuista äänistä. Hänen oma kirjansa myytiin nopeasti loppuun, joten on aikakin saada julki entistäkin näyttävämpi painos Rivo-Riittaa!

Fingerporin naiset todella kääntää sun pään, Rivo-Riitan Kahvila Aromissa kokkaamat ruuat myös vatsan. Omalakisessa Fingerporin kaupungissa kaiken takana on nainen. Rivo-Riitan kirjassa sarjan kauniimpi sukupuoli tuodaan parrasvaloihin.

Nimihenkilön lisäksi teoksessa esitellään Fingerpori-sarjan muutkin keskeiset naishenkilöt, kuten lentoemäntä Irma Kääriäinen, hänen isoäitinsä Inkeri Kääriäinen, Heimo Vesan mummo sekä Krapula-Päivinä tunnettu Päivi Kankkonen. Myös sukupuoleltaan häilyväinen Ornitologi Asko vilauttaa joissakin kuvissa.

Täydennetty laitos, ISOna pokkarina ilmestyvä Rivo-Riitan kirja sisältää myös Fingerpullan leipomisohjeet, virkkausniksejä sekä jokasään kestävät horoskoopit!

Mistä on humoristit tehty?

Pertti Jarla: Fingerpori from Finland XL (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Lisää Fingerporia englannin kielellä.




Neil Gaiman & Mark Buckingham: Miracleman – Ihmeiden aika (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Neil Gaiman jatkaa Miraclemanin tarinaa!
Miracleman ja muut supersankarit ovat onnistuneet nujertamaan vihollisensa Johnny Batesin, hävittämään ydinaseet ja kitkemään rikollisuuden maapallolta.

Maailma on nyt viimein utopia, jota ohjaavat hyväntahtoiset yli-ihmiset.
Mutta onko tavallisilla ihmisillä sijaa täydellisessä maailmassa?

Miraclemanin jatko-osa on ensimmäisen kirjan tavoin ajatuksia herättävä ja haastava teos, joka esittelee lukijalle supersankarifantasian äärimmäisen lopputuloksen – ja utopian kääntöpuolen.

Jorma Pitkänen: Jopen juhlakirja (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Kuvatyön sankari, sarjakuvan stahanovilainen Jorma Jope Pitkänen on saavuttanut miehen iän. 70 ikävuoteen mahtuu muun elämän ja elämöinnin ohella 40 000 julkaistua sarjakuvaa. Se on maailman mittaluokassakin uskomaton luku.

Jopen hahmot eivät ole sarjakuvasankareita vaan antisankareita: vastarannan kiiskiä, omissa heikkouksissaan rypeviä tyyppejä, jotka kiskovat itseään suosta savolaisen vääräleukaisuuden voimalla. Näkymätön Viänänen on pontikkaa keittävä pirttiviljelijä, kirjaimellisesti näkymätön tapaus yhteiskunnan laitamailta. Lempi on monissa liemissä keitetty evakkomummo, jonka suuta ei kuolemakaan tukkinut. Naapurin koira Lyyti haukkuu tasapuolisesti kaikki.

Täsmätarpeisiin suunniteltuja sarjoja eri alojen ja alueiden lehtiin on kymmeniä: Kisko, Paperitiikeri, Vossikka, Muikku-Koponen, Mauno Mansikka… Edes taiteilijaeläkkeen saaminen ei pysäyttänyt tehtailua. Jopen Juhlakirja on tiivistelmä yli 40 vuoden jälkeenkin jatkuvasta urasta.

Kirjan ovat toimittaneet Ville Hänninen, Vesa Kataisto ja Kari Puikkonen.

“Savolaiselle ei pitäisi koskaan antaa kynää ja paperia käteen, siitä meikäläinen on varottava esimerkki.” – JOPE

Roger Leloup: Yoko Tsuno 21 – Kuolemattomien temppeli (ENNAKKOTILAUS)





Vesa Vitikainen: Isku Porkkalaan (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


1940-luvun lopulla sodat ovat ohi, mutta taistelu jatkuu.

Suomalainen yhteiskunta kokoaa itseään ja panostaa jälleenrakentamiseen.
Neuvostokomennon alaisena olevalla Porkkalan alueella piilotellaan jotakin todella vaarallista, kenties atomipommia?

Marsalkka Mannerheim kokoaa kaikkien aikojen iskuryhmän, johon kuuluvat sotajermut Viljam “Rokka” Pylkäs, Aarne “Marokon kauhu” Juutilainen, Lauri Törni ja Simo Häyhä. Neuvostoliitto ei arvosta asioihinsa puuttumista, käskyn käytyä turvallisuuspoliisi eli ns. Punainen Valpo lähtee tutkimaan Marskin ryhmän aikeita.
Mutta onko atomipommi sittenkään edes pahin paha, mikä Porkkalassa piilee?

Käsikirjoittaja Vesa Vitikaisella on laaja suomalaisen historian tuntemus. Hän on sovittanut useiden legendaaristen suomalaisten sotasankarien elämäkerrat sarjakuviksi. Kuvitteellista Isku Porkkalaan -seikkailutarinaa varten Vitikainen on koonnut todella kovan tekijäjoukon.
Mukana ovat mm. Anssi Rauhala, Petri Hiltunen, Jouko Ruokosenmäki, Mauri Tuure ja Mikael Mäkinen.

Petri Hiltunen: Vala auringolle & Aavetanssi – 20-vuotisjuhlapainos (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Kauan sitten loppuunmyydyt teokset Vala auringolle ja Aavetanssi tulevat nyt täydennettynä yhteisniteenä 20 vuotta ensi-ilmestymisensä jälkeen ja Petri Hiltusen 30-vuotistaiteilijajuhlan kunniaksi!

Teokset sijoittuvat 1800-luvun Amerikkaan, tasankointiaanien yhteisöön Etelä-Dakotaan.

Teosten päähenkilö on Tom Barnett, sioux-nimeltään Juokseva mäyrä. Vala auringolle -tarinassa Barnett on ajautunut armottoman vihan kohteeksi, ja ainoa jäljellä olevat tie johtaa omien sukulaisten pariin. Tom ei ole koskaan tuntenut olevansa osa valkoisten yhteisöä, mutta miten halukas alkuperäiskansa on ottamaan tuhlaajapojan vastaan? Kulttuurin vaihtaminen on kivulias prosessi.

Aavetanssissa tasankointiaanit yrittävät palauttaa kunniaansa ja kulttuuriaan luomalla uuden uskonnon. Tämä hurmosliike pelottaa valkoisia, jotka lähettävät ratsuväen valvomaan siouxien toimintaa. Tilanne ajautuu väistämättömään konfliktiin, joka tunnetaan historiassa Wounded Kneen verilöylynä.

Severi Nygård: Sarjakuvasensuuri (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Kiroilu, väkivalta, seksi, rasismi ja esivallan loukkaukset. Jopa viattomat suudelmat.

Sensuuri on iskenyt sarjakuviin monin tavoin. Sarjakuvalehtiä on sensuroitu siitä asti kun ne toisen maailmansodan jälkeen levisivät ympäri maailman. Sensuurilla on pyritty suojelemaan vallitsevaa olotilaa, oli kyse sitten kulttuurista tai ideologiasta tai valtaapitävien asemasta. Erityisesti sensuurin hampaisiin ovat aina joutuneet uudet lajityypit, kuten kauhu, underground ja manga.

Sensuurissa tekstejä on muutettu tai poistettu, on käännetty tahallisesti väärin, yksittäisiä sanoja on kielletty. On peitetty tai piirretty uudelleen hirviöitä, aseita, sukupuolitunnuksia, kuolemaa, huumeita ja alkoholia. Kokonaisia julkaisuja on myös kielletty, julkaisijoita ja tekijöitä on sakotettu. Taiteilijoita on uhattu väkivallalla ja jopa murhattu.

Sarjakuvasensuuri kertoo sarjakuvien sensuroinnin hätkähdyttävästä, yhä jatkuvasta historiasta ensimmäistä kertaa suomeksi näin laajasti.

Severi Nygård on kirjoittanut artikkeleita sarjakuvista ja laatinut sarjakuvan määrittelevän intermediaalisen sarjakuvan teorian (Intermedial Comics). Hän on kolmatta vuotta Suomen Sarjakuvaseuran hallituksessa.

François Boucq & Alejandro Jodorowsky: Bouncer 4 – Pyövelin kosto (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Bouncer on lähtenyt kostamaan ystäviensä karun kohtalon. Hänelle paljastuu, että kohtaloon on punoutunut paitsi Barro Cityä tyrannisoiva öykkäri julmine roskajoukkoineen myös raaka veljesmurha, kulta, joka on henkeä arvokkaampaa, ja oikeudentuntoinen intiaani…

Puolustamalla vanhaa karjatilallista Bouncer nostattaa riistetyt maanomistajat tyrannia vastaan. Yllätyksiä on kuitenkin luvassa, kun samalla junalla kaupunkiin saapuu kolme kuolemanenkeliä sekä Bouncerin kurjan pestin jatkaja, Barro Cityn uusi pyöveli, joka ei ole sitä mitä on odotettu. Lisäksi Bouncerin menneisyydestä palaa unohdettu hahmo, ja vaiennetut muistot nousevat pintaan.

Bouncer on timantinkova western, jossa yhdistyvät Villin lännen raaka todellisuus, mystiikka ja ihmismielen pimeät puolet. Sarjan kaksi ensimmäistä osaa Kainin silmä ja Armottomien laupeus muodostavat yhtenäisen tarinan, ja kolmas osa Käärmeen oikeus aloittaa kolmen albumin kokonaisuuden.

Henri Vernes & William Vance: Bob Morane (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Klassinen sankari Bob Morane palaa hienona kokoelmana!

Vauhdikasta toimintaa ja huimia tieteisvisioita tyylikkäästi 60-luvun henkeen yhdistelevä ranskalaissarjakuva tuli tutuksi Suomessa 70-luvun Zoom-lehdessä sekä 80-luvun albumeissa.
Muhkea kokoomakirja sisältää sarjan esittelyn ja kokonaista viisi seikkailua, joista neljä on aiemmin suomentamattomia, ja viides on legendaarinen ”Silmät sumussa”, joka on ilmestynyt aiemmin suomeksi vain jatkosarjana.

Kuvittaja William Vance tunnetaan myös menestyssarjakuvista Bruno Brazil sekä XIII.

Gianluigi Bonelli & Galep: Tex Willer – Maxi-Tex 34: Mefiston varjo (ENNAKKOTILAUS)


Mefiston ja hänen poikansa Yaman pirullisten juonittelujen sarjassa Mefiston varjo on yksi merkillisimmistä Tex Willerin ja kumppanien kamppailuista arkkivihollisten yliluonnollista mahtia vastaan.

Tarina alkaa siitä, mihin edellinen selkkaus päättyi.
Välienselvittelyssä Jukatanin niemimaalla Yama suistui mayatemppelin alla kuohuvaan mustaan virtaan. Hornan esikartanolla majaileva Mefisto pelastaa poikansa avukseen kolkon kostonsa toteuttajaksi.
Yhdessä he järjestävät kotimaahan palaavalle neljälle sankarillemme piinallisen kujanjuoksun, jossa heitä riepottelevat pimeyden ilkeimmät voimat kärjessään vampyyrilepakko Aryman.
Kostajat lietsovat ankaria luonnonvoimia, Tampassa odottaa vihaan kiihotettu mustien voodoo-veljeskunta sekä heidän häijy mambonoitansa wanga-nukkeineen. Sankareita painostetaan palaamaan Jättiläisten laaksoon, jossa jo kertaalleen kohdatut atsteekit, Auringon pojat, hakevat Yaman yllyttäminä tylyä hyvitystä aiemmista tappioistaan.
Onneksi Tex ja kumppanit ehtivät pistäytyä El Moriscon luona pahantorjunta-apua hankkimassa.

Gianluigi Bonellin kirjoittama ja Aurelio Galleppinin piirtämä klassikkoseikkailu on julkaistu aiemmin Tex Willerin numeroissa 11-15/1982.
