Shitty Watchmen

Shitty Watchmen is a formalist exercise analyzing the language of comics as utilized by Alan Moore and, more importantly, Dave Gibbons.

Created by Dave Baker, Nicole Goux, Rachel Dukes, Malachi Ward, Nick Diaz, Emilie Vo, Sam Ancona, Chuck Kerr, Colby Bluth, Robert Negrete, and Sabrina Deigert, Shitty Watchmen seeks to scrutinize the masterful use of composition and panel breakdown within the most undeniably complex comic book ever created.
The means by which these staggering artistic achievements are deconstructed? Super shitty drawings.

Thus…

Shitty Watchmen.

This comic comes signed by Rachel Dukes.

Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell!” — Lisa Hanawalt, production designer/producer of BoJack Horseman, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes

Events take Corto from a small island in the Venetian lagoon, where he comes face to face with a beautiful blonde spy, to Stonehenge and an adventure with Merlin, Morgana, and Puck.
Along the way he meets Ernest Hemingway and future billionaire Aristotle Onassis, Irish revolutionary Banshee O’Danann, the legendary Red Baron, and an intense cast of characters who weave in and out of a series of labyrinthine plots and counter-plots.

Hugo Pratt: Corto Maltese – The Ethiopian

When Corto Maltese arrives in the Middle East and Africa in 1918 the shifting sands and loyalties reveal colonial powers still battling for domination over each other and the indigenous people.

The desert of Yemen, controlled by the fading Ottoman Empire, is the setting for “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful and Compassionate,” where Corto meets Cush, the Danikil warrior with whom he establishes a close yet conflicted relationship.
In “The Coup de Grace” the stubborn racism of an English commander of a small fort in British Somaliland leads to conflict with Cush and the Dervish army of Sayyid Mohamed, whom the British call “The Mad Mullah.”

Return to the golden age of adventure with this gorgeously wrought, action-packed, globetrotting tale that combines the bravura storytelling of Kipling with the irresistible, illustrative style of Hergé’s Adventures of Tintin.

Behind the staid public rooms of an old world gentlemen’s club operates a more mysterious organization: The Explorers Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who bravely journey to those places in which light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth.
The secrets they seek are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, buried in the ocean floor and lodged deep in polar ice. The aim of The Explorers Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world.

This beautifully produced combination graphic novel and adventure tale, set against the backdrop of World War I, concerns the Guild’s quest to find the golden city of Buddhist myth.
The search will take them from the Polar North to the Mongolian deserts, through the underground canals of Asia to deep inside the Himalayas, before the fabled city finally divulges its secrets and the globe-spanning journey plays out to its startling conclusion.

Joan Cornélla: Mox Nox

This book collects the Spanish cartoonist’s twisted comics, which are popular on Facebook.

Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornella’s viciously funny Mox Nox single-page strips are wordless, full-color, hand-painted marvels of the form.
That his visually inviting artwork is in the service of Cornella’s graphic sense of humor/horror only heightens the appeal.
Mox Nox is populated almost exclusively by smiling psychopaths who invariably turn even the most mundane situation into a side-splitting and cringe-inducing farce.

To reach the end of this long and dangerous trail, however, he will have to pass through the bellies of two very different beasts: first, a nest of white supremacists in rural Montana, where Fermin’s widow has settled; and then, finally, Los Angeles—capital of an entire empire of decadence and home to the singularly American corruption that has hounded Constantine halfway around the globe.

Finnish with English translation

Sarjakuvaa kahdella kielellä – Sarjakuvaharjoituksia persiaksi ja suomeksi

Kaksikielinen sarjakuvan opetus- ja tehtäväkirja yhdistää kielen opettelun tarinankerronnan ja piirtämisen harjoitteluun ja on siksi oivallinen paketti niin kotiin, kerhoon kuin kouluun.

Kirja on tehty Suomessa asuville, persiaa kotikielenään puhuville lapsille, mutta monet tehtävistä sopivat kaikille persian kielestä kiinnostuneille iästä riippumatta.

Tehtäväkirjan käyttö ei vaadi sekä suomen että persian kielen tuntemusta, mutta kylläkin luku- ja kirjoitustaitoa jommallakummalla kielellä.
