Tom Gauld: Baking with Kafka

A best-of collection of literary humour cartoons from the critically-acclaimed Guardian cartoonist.

In his inimitable style, British cartoonist Tom Gauld has opened comics to a crossover audience and challenged perceptions of what the medium can be. Noted as a “book-lover’s cartoonist,” Gauld’s weekly strips in The Guardian, Britain’s most well-regarded newspaper, stitch together the worlds of literary criticism and pop culture to create brilliantly executed, concise comics.
Simultaneously silly and serious, Gauld adds an undeniable lightness to traditionally highbrow themes. From sarcastic panels about the health hazards of being a best-selling writer to a list of magical items for fantasy writers (such as the Amulet of Attraction, which summons mainstream acceptance, Hollywood money, and fresh coffee), Gauld’s cartoons are timely and droll–his trademark British humour, impeccable timing, and distinctive visual style sets him apart from the rest.

Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky: Sex Criminals 4 – Fourgy

Everybody’s favorite sex-having, time-freezing, bank-robbing crew of lovable love-misfits come together and ask themselves the big question: are we still into this?

THE ANSWER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU (if you think the answer is no).

Collects SEX CRIMINALS #16-20.


Jason Aaron & Cameron Stewart: The Other Side

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION is a hardcover collection of the Eisner-Award nominated miniseries that started it all for writer JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, THE GODDAMNED, Scalped)!

With amazingly visceral artwork from CAMERON STEWART (MOTOR CRUSH, Fight Club 2) and vivid colors from DAVE McCAIG (American Vampire), THE OTHER SIDE tells an unforgettable Vietnam War story from the point of view of two young soldiers on both sides of the conflict.

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION will not only showcase this powerful war story but also include loads of extra materials straight from the files of both writer and artist. CAMERON STEWART was so committed to this project that he traveled to Vietnam to do preliminary research, and this collection will feature pictures, drawings, and journal entries from that trip.

Stephan Pastis: I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream Because Puns Suck

We know it’s coming.

The telltale signs are all there: the oddly specific setup, the unusual word choice, and, just visible out of the corner of our eye, the final panel of Stephan sitting at his desk awaiting the chastisement of one of his characters. Somehow the pun still manages to elicit a groan larger than we expected.

Fortunately for us—and for Stephan’s job security—there are more than just puns in I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream Because Puns Suck.
The entire Pearls Before Swine crew returns in some of the strip’s most raucous cartoons yet. Rat tries his hand at public service as a judge and presidential candidate (he’s accepting tips), Goat has a nasty run-in with Internet trolls (maybe it’s time to get off social media), and Pig is dismayed to learn that there is no European city of “Hamsterdam” (much less a dam that holds back a river of hamsters).

And like always, the Zebras can congratulate each other on a safe day and hope for a Croc-less tomorrow—in other words, the preys praise and pray.

Francois Schuiten & Benoit Peeters: Samaris

Against the urging of his friends and his lover, Franz, a young officer in the Xhystos government, is sent on a mission to the remote and elusive city of Samaris to investigate the disappearance of several of his colleagues.

After weeks of travel, Franz reaches Samaris, to find a practically deserted city of enveloping and deceptive architecture. He is immediately bewitched by a mysterious young woman, drawing the suspicion of the other residents. Can Franz escape the impending doom of this sprawling metropolis?

The first in the Obscure Cities series, The Great Walls of Samaris was originally published in Europe in 1983 and in the US in 1987 by NBM.
The story has been slightly altered to include characters who appear later in the canon, and reveal Peeter’s Kafkaesque storytelling prowess. Schuiten’s art in this edition has been reworked to be much truer to the originally intended color palette, and includes 32 additional pages of early Obscure Cities stories, comprising the Mysteries of Pâhry, never before published in English.

Sophie Goldstein: House of Women

When Sarai and her fellow emissaries from the Empire disembark from their ship, they find themselves on an unknown planet teeming with life and mystery.

The natives, whom they intend to “civilize,” are not as malleable as expected and their only other human contact, a man with some unexpected genetic modifications, only causes further conflict within their ranks. Something dark is growing in Mopu.
The only question is whether the danger that will undo the women’s delicate camaraderie is outside the gates—or within.

Brian K. Vaughan: Michael Chabon’s The Escapists

Inspired by the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, this story of three aspiring comics creators with big dreams, small cash, and publishing rights to one forgotten Golden Age hero–the Escapist–is Brian K. Vaughan’s love letter to his chosen medium.

The lives of creators Max, Denny, and Case–latter-day versions of Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay–are brilliantly woven together with the world of their creations.

Steven Philip Jones: H.P. Lovecraft’s Worlds 2 – Dagon and Other Tales

A collection of five Lovecraft tales adapted by award winning comic writer Steven Philip Jones.

Lovecraft is considered one of America’s most innovative and popular American horror writers. The master of the weird tale during the first decades of the 20th Century until his premature death in 1937, Lovecraft’s distinctive style and canon of work has influenced many authors.
Jones takes the classic tales and while remaining true to the source, brings them into the modern age which can sometimes make the horror even more terrifying. These tales are illustrated by comic artists Sergio Cariello (MARVEL’s Deadpool, Captain America), Christopher Jones (DC’s Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!), Aldin Baroza (Family Guy, One Fisted Tales), Rob Davis (Star Trek, Quantum Leap), and Wayne Reid (El Cid, Storyville).

The five illustrated stories within this Volume are “Dagon”, the U.S.S. Augustus is a nuclear submarine, its crew is unaccustomed to picking up castaways, especially on uncharted islands in the middle of the Atlantic. But that is where the Augustus finds Emma Loveless, sole survivor of a private jet crash.

“Arthur Jermyn”, the Jermyns have lived in their Gothic estate in Cambridgeshire for centuries. Explorers and adventurers, they are a wild and violent bunch with a cursed, black history of sudden murder and blood. Until the birth of Arthur Jermyn.

“Picture in the House”, Lorraine Claude is fascinated with the morbid and weird, but Lorraine does not count on a sudden thunderstorm driving her into the farmhouse of a very friendly and very old cannibal.

“The Statement of Randolph Carter”, Harley Warren is an expert on violent criminals and assists the FBI in their profiling and pursuit of criminals. When Warren reads a book about a location that can reveal the darkest and oldest mysteries of the stygian unknown, Warren wastes no time packing up his reluctant chronicler and assistant, Randolph Carter, to explore the site.

“Music of Erich Zann”, each night when American astronomer Max Finn comes home, an old man plays haunting melodies on his violins. Melodies that plague Finn’s dreams at night and give him nightmares about a cosmic land ruled by Nyarlathotep, also known as The Crawling Chaos, the messenger of the elder gods.

Jeff Lemire: Royal City 1 – Next of Kin

In his most ambitious and most personal project to date, JEFF LEMIRE spins the captivating and engaging story of a family from the small factory town of Royal City and the ghosts that haunt them.

In a return to the literary and thematic territory of LEMIRE’s breakthrough graphic novel Essex County, ROYAL CITY follows Patrick Pike, a fading literary star who reluctantly returns to the once-thriving factory town where he grew up.

Patrick is quickly drawn back into the dramas of his two adult siblings, his overbearing mother, and his browbeaten father, all of whom are still haunted by different versions of his youngest brother, Tommy, who drowned decades ago.
As each member of the family struggles to keep themselves above water, it quickly becomes clear that Tommy’s death isn’t the only dark secret tearing the town, and this family, apart at the seams.

Can each member of the Pike family come to terms with their own guilt over Tommy’s death, and make peace with the many versions of Tommy that still haunt them, or will they all be dragged down below the river along with his lingering ghost?

ROYAL CITY promises to be a sprawling serialized graphic novel that will chart the lives, loves, and losses of a troubled family and a vanishing town, across three decades.

Corto Maltese’s return to Venice is ostensibly a search for an emerald known as the Clavicle of Solomon, but by the end he is left questioning whether the object of his quest will open the hidden doors of magic and unravel the nature of time and space in this city of secrets… or if it’s merely “the stuff that dreams are made of,” as was the black bird of Dashiell Hammett’s novel featuring another Maltese.

Fred Van Lente & Pere Pérez: Deadpool vs. The Punisher

It’s the Merc with a Mouth vs. the One-Man Army!

But things get complicated when the mercenary and the merciless Castle wind up embroiled in a bigger, messier conflict with the Bank front and center.
The bloody and brutal fight never ceases regardless of what side Wade and Frank are on, even when it’s seemingly the same side–just because they have a common enemy doesn’t make them partners in crime.

Tom King & David Finch: Batman – The Rebirth Deluxe Edition 1

The first two volumes of BATMAN as a part of DC Universe Rebirth are collected here in hardcover for the first time ever!

The Caped Crusader has never been stopped.
Not by the Joker. Not by Two-Face. Not even by the entire Justice League.
But now, in the wake of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, Batman must face his most challenging foe ever–a hero who wants to save Gotham…from the Batman!

Batman/The Flash – The Button Deluxe Edition (Cover 1)

The road to DOOMSDAY CLOCK begins here, with the invasion of the Watchmen into the DC Universe! BATMAN/THE FLASH: THE BUTTON DELUXE EDITION is the prelude to this epic story, complete with a lenticular motion cover!

During the unforgettable events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, Batman found a mystery he can’t even begin to solve—a strange bloodstained smiley-face button embedded in the Batcave wall. All analysis suggests the button is not of this universe…so where did it come from? And who left it here? These are questions only the Flash can help answer.

When the button is stolen by Reverse-Flash, Batman and Flash follow his trail to a parallel world, a twisted alternate timeline that shouldn’t exist.
Someone is sending the heroes on a bizarre trip through reality, showing them glimpses of fallen loved ones and forgotten friends—but who?
Wally West warned the Flash of an unseen force influencing our world—distorting histories, pulling the strings, watching all—and the strange yellow button could be the key to finding it.

Tom King & David Finch: Batman 3 – I Am Bane

He is not a joke.

He is not a riddle.
He is not a bird or a cat or a penguin, not a scarecrow or a plant or a puppet.
He is not a fairy tale or a circus act, a broken friend or a regretful mentor.
He is no rich boy pretending to be a knight.

He is Bane.
The Batman invaded his home, scarred his mind and broke his back. Now Bane has returned to Gotham City for a single purpose: break the Batman once and for all. But first, he’ll destroy everyone the Dark Knight has ever loved…or loathed.

The young heroes who’ve worn the mantle of Robin. The cops, crime-fighters and vigilantes who make up Batman’s army of allies. Even the madmen and monsters that haunt the halls of Arkham Asylum. Batman will need all of their help—and more—to fend off this unstoppable challenger.

Because both Bane and Batman know one thing: only one of them will walk away from their final confrontation unbroken…

James Tynion IV: Batman Detective Comics 3 – League of Shadows

Batwoman, an accomplished crime-fighter who’s overcome the darkest of betrayals.

Clayface, a reformed villain whose potential is eclipsed only by his astonishing powers.
New heroes like Azrael, an avenging angel, and Batwing, whose incredible armor makes him a true dark knight.
Led by the Batman himself, this team of guardians stands ready to protect Gotham City.

But the secrets of the team’s most mysterious member, Cassandra Cain, are about to come to light. And that light will cast a shadow darker than anything they’ve ever seen before.

They thought the League of Shadows was just a rumor—a secret society of nihilistic killers often whispered about but never seen.
But now the League is here, in Gotham. They’re destroying Batman’s team one by one. And their sinister leader, Lady Shiva, has come to reclaim her daughter—or destroy her.

Can even Batman’s arch-enemy Ra’s al Ghul and his League of Assassins stop the onslaught? Or have the Shadows come to stay?

Greg Rucka: Wonder Woman – The Rebirth Deluxe Edition 1

She is one of the greatest heroes the world has ever known—an icon of equality, a symbol of power, a tireless champion of peace and justice.

But who is Wonder Woman really? She’s about to find out.

Themyscira, the island paradise she left behind to defend Earth from the war god Ares, has vanished, and the magical power of her Lasso of Truth has disappeared along with it.

In a sprawling saga that bridges her first year as a hero with the present day, the Amazon Princess must team up with her greatest enemy—the brutal beast-woman Cheetah—to find her vanished homeland and seek the truth about her origins.

Can this unlikely alliance save her sisters and the world? Or will Wonder Woman’s quest for answers lead to even deeper, darker and deadlier places?

Paavo Hotti: Ylivoimaa vastaan

Paavo Hotin upea sarjakuva aloittelevan hävittäjälentäjän kamppailuista armottomalla pakkastaivaalla 1939-1940.

Sarjakuva kertoo Suomen talvisodan rajuista ja katkerista ilmataisteluista idästä vyöryvää ylivoimaista ilmaterroria vastaan.
Lentokaluston riittämätön määrä sekä kova pakkanen asettivat lisäksi oman haasteensa puolustajien vähälukuiselle ja sinnikkäälle sankarijoukolle.

Tarina piirrettiin jo 50 vuotta sitten ja se on aiheensa puolesta edelleen ajankohtainen myös juuri nyt, Suomi 100 -juhlavuoden loppuhuipentuman aikana.

Tekijä on toisen maalimansodan lentokoneiden harrastaja jo pikkupojasta eli 50-luvun alusta lähtien. Paavo Hotin piirroksia ja sarjakuvia aiheesta julkaistiin 60- sekä 90-luvuilla Siivet- ja Korkeajännitys-lehdissä.

Varsinaisen elämäntyönsä Hotti on tehnyt mainostaiteilijana sekä yrittäjänä mainosalalla ja nauttii nykyään ansaituista eläkepäivistään Kurkimäen rauhallisessa lähiössä Helsingissä.

Emmi Nieminen & Johanna Vehkoo: Vihan ja inhon internet

Internet täyttyy toinen toistaan kovemmista ja julmemmista äänistä.

Vanhat asenteet, seksismi, misogynia ja rasismi, ovat jo arkipäivää, kun asiansa voi huutaa oman kodin seinien sisältä ja profiilin takaa – usein myös anonyymisti.

Verkkovihan kohteeksi joutuvat tyypillisimmin naiset ja vähemmistöihin kuuluvat. Vihapuhetta oikeutetaan sananvapaudella, mutta se on johtanut sananvapauden kaventumiseen: naiset pelkäävät ottaa kantaa mielipiteitä jyrkästi jakaviin aiheisiin. Vihapuheesta ilmiönä puhutaan paljon, mutta nyt pääsevät ääneen myös sen kohteet.

Vihan ja inhon internet purkaa ilmiön syitä ja seurauksia: Miten sen kohteet kokevat ilmiön? Mikä siihen johtaa ja mikä vihaajia motivoi? Miten vihapuheeseen tulisi reagoida ja miten siltä voi suojautua? Entä sitten, kun vihapuhe siirtyy internetistä tosielämän tekoihin?

Toimittaja Johanna Vehkoo ja sarjakuvataiteilija Emmi Nieminen ovat luoneet teoksen, joka käsittelee yhtä aikamme vaikeimmista ilmiöistä journalistisen sarjakuvan keinoin.


Robert B. Reich: Economics in Wonderland

Who knew that Robert Reich, the former U.S. Secretary of Labor, and a frequent commentator and debater on CNBC and The Daily Show, is also a skilled cartoonist?

Anyone who watches his podcast, viewed on his Inequality Media website, that’s who.
For years, Reich has taken a large sketchpad and a magic marker on speaking tours to help teach the most important topics of the day with illustrations.
What do we do about student debt, social security, and gerrymandering? Every week, Reich delivers an informal lecture accompanied by a quick-draw cartoon illustrating the major points of his talk.

Economics in Wonderland is a collection of both his mini essays and the cartoons he drew to illustrate them.
Read the text, follow the cartoon.
Reich is well known as a tireless advocate of liberalism, and tackles the most volatile issues in our country’s uncertain future — minimum wage, voting rights, wealth distribution, war, how to talk to relatives on the other side of the political spectrum — with only a felt-tipped marker and his signature wit.
Reich’s erudite talks are collected here for the first time, accompanied by his clean-line and confident cartoons, clearly explaining the consequences of the disastrous policies of global austerity with humor, insight, passion, and warmth.
