KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Juba: Viivi ja Wagner 24 – Parisuhdekriisisuklaa

Albumin täydeltä sian ja naisen uusia kohelluksia.

Sortsisankari Wagnerin makuun kotona on liikaa naishormonia, mutta sitten Viivin äiti ja mummo yllättäen katoavatkin nurkista.

Wagner odottelee perintöä käsiään hieroen ja opettaa Viiviä törsäämään varmuudeksi jo etukäteen.
Eripurastaan huolimatta tämä suomalaisten rakastama pariskunta toteaa aina lopulta sopivansa toisilleen kuin kalja käteen.

Tiitu Takalo: Rakkaus on köyhän rikkaus

RAKKAUS ON KÖYHÄN RIKKAUS – KOOTUT SARJAKUVANOVELLIT luo kattavan katsauksen Tiitu Takalon uraan. Teos nitoo yhteen kauan sitten loppuunmyytyjen Tyhmän tytön (2004) ja Jään (2008) parhaat tarinat. Niitä täydentävät Tiitun omakustanteiden helmet, tilaustyöt ja erilaisiin antologioihin syntyneet sarjakuvat.

Tekijän kommentit kutsuvat lukijan sarjakuvien kulissien taakse. Taiteilijan punnitut puheenvuorot kertovat paitsi luomisen ilosta ja tuskasta, myös siitä, kuinka suomalainen yhteiskunta on muuttunut viimeisen parinkymmenen vuoden aikana.

TIITU TAKALO on Puupää-hatulla palkittu tamperelainen sarjakuvantekijä, joka tunnetaan feminismin, vähemmistöjen, vastakulttuurin sekä ilon ja rohkeuden puolestapuhujana. Hänen tähänastiset pääteoksensa ovat Memento mori (2020) ja Minä, Mikko ja Annikki (2014). Jälkimmäinen palkittiin Sarjakuva-Finlandialla.

Nanna Johansson: Vitsaa säästämättä

Vaivaannuttavan tunnelman, höpsön pilailun ja veitsenterävien analyysien mestarin Nanna Johanssonin Vitsaa säästämättä on hillitön kokoelma sarjakuvia ja pilapiirroksia.

Ruotsin kenties hauskimman sarjakuvataiteilijan Nanna Johanssonin ensimmäisessä suomennetussa albumissa seikkailee huonosti käyttäytyviä tätejä, fundamentalistisia kahvinjuojia, Tukholmassa toilailevia maalaisia ja pitkäpiimäisiä hääpuheenpitäjiä.
Kirja paljastaa miksi pronssiset rintaliivit ovat turha vaatekappale ja miksi Leijonakuningas on silkkaa diktatuuripropagandaa.

Johansson vinoilee normeille, patriarkaatille ja kulutushysterialle.

Nanna Johansson on luonut omintakeisen tyylin, jossa herttaisuus kohtaa karmeuden ja nokkeluus kulkee käsi kädessä ällöttävyyden kanssa.
Gävlessä vuonna 1986 syntynyt ja Skånessa asuva satiirisen sarjakuvan mestari Nanna Johansson on yksi Ruotsin tunnetuimmista ja luetuimmista sarjakuvataiteilijoista..

P.A. Manninen: Kapteeni Kuolio ja Kissanmaan hirviökissa

”Mikä julma peto, aikansa tultua viimein, hiipii syntyäksensä Betlehemiin?”

Tuon arvoituksen esitti Nobelilla palkittu William Butler Yeats runossaan ”Toinen tuleminen”. Sen mysteerin selvittäminen vaatii tiimityöskentelyä Kapteeni Kuoliolta, Kapteeni Kököltä ja Ajattaralta.

Millä asialla liikkuu hirviökissa, joka tuntuu johdattelevan Tampereen supersankareita kohti sopivasti Kissanmaaksi nimettyä seutua? Mitä tekee muinaisvampyyri Lamia, jolla on ongelmia impulssikontrollissa? Kummitteleeko maailman ilkeimmäksi mieheksi sanotun Aleister Crowleyn henki Tampereella?

Albumi perustuu tositapahtumiin ja se on kuvattu aidoilla tapahtumapaikoilla.

Pauli Kallio & Pentti Otsamo: FC Palloseura – Kulmalan isännän kisahuuma

Kuudes FC Palloseura -kokoelma vie meidät keskelle suomalaisen jalkapallon ikimuistoisimpia hetkiä.

Miesten maajoukkueen hartaasti odotettu EM-kisamatka varmistuu, kun Huuhkajat löylyttää Liechtensteinin Helsingin viileässä syysillassa.
Helmarit puolestaan harppaa Edinburghissa kohti naisten EM-turnausta Amanda Rantasen riemastuttavalla nenämaalilla.
Hämmästyttävän triplan täydentää lopulta miesten futsaljoukkue, joka sekin porskuttaa Euroopan valioiden joukkoon.

Pallo pyörii ja pomppii myös viime vuosien arvoturnauksissa, Veikkausliigan viheriöillä, Valioliigan kirkkaissa valoissa sekä tietysti FC Palloseuran alasarjaotteluissa Tervakorven Pedon ja Pöhniön Urho-Veikkojen vieraana.
Lisäksi käväisemme Rio de Janeiron olympialaisissa, Kalevan kisoissa, Pihtiputaan keihäskarnevaaleilla ja Suomi–Ruotsi -yleisurheilumaaottelussa.

Suurin osa kokoelman sarjakuvista on julkaistu Ilta-Sanomissa tai Urheilulehden jalkapalloliitteissä vuosina 2016–2021. Mukana on myös muutama varta vasten tähän kirjaan tehty jakso.

ENNAKKOTILAUKSET

Juba: Naurava enkeli ja muita kauhutarinoita (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 30.6.2021.

Jussi ”Juba” Tuomola on ollut kauhusarjakuvafani lapsesta lähtien. Tuolloin, 70-luvun puolivälissä, Suomessa koettiin kauhusarjakuvan lyhyt kulta-aika. Kauhulehtiä ilmestyi puolen tusinaa erilaista nimikettä, tärkeimpänä niistä Shokki.

Ensimmäiset omat kauhusarjansa Juba teki 80-luvun alussa Kaliforniassa, piirtäjäkavereiden innoittamina. Suomessa hän tuli tunnetuksi Viivillä ja Wagnerilla, mutta kauhuinnostus ei ole koskaan kuollut. Juban kauhutarinoita on aiemmin julkaistu satunnaisesti antologioissa, mm. amerikkalaisessa Taboossa.

Tämän kokoelman tarinat ovat muutamaa sivua lukuunottamatta uusia ja ennenjulkaisemattomia.
