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.
EI HEIKKOHERMOISILLE LAPSILLE!
When feisty college student Yuri is attacked at a party, she’s saved by Toshiomi Oya, the underboss of a yakuza syndicate.
Despite her obvious attraction to him, she convinces herself that she’s not in the market for a bad boy type. But when they meet again, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to him―kicking off a steamy and dangerous love affair that threatens to consume her, body and soul.
After the attack at the party, Yuri goes to see Oya to thank him for saving her, and as much as she hates to admit it, she can’t deny there’s an attraction. However, when tragedy strikes, Yuri attempts to turn her back on Oya and his dangerous lifestyle for good―but will the allure prove too great to resist?
The award-winning painter and illustrator Anita Kunz’s sumptuous, witty, feminist alternate history of Western art.
Have you ever awakened from a sleepy delirium one morning and imagined that you lived in a different and glorious world where all the recognized masterpieces in the Western pantheon of art history were painted by women?
If not, no problem: The renowned and award-winning painter and illustrator Anita Kunz has imagined it for you in her hilariously inventive and masterfully executed Another History of Art.
Kunz depicts the most iconic paintings in the history of art ― as if they had been painted by women. Conceived with delicious wit, boundless humor, and an eye for the telling aesthetic detail, Kunz’s recreations are not only stunning paintings in their own right but a sly, revisionist social commentary on the male-dominated history of Western civilization.
What would the same paintings everyone is so familiar with look like drawn by Renée Françoise Magritte, Fiona Bacon, Davina Hockney, Leona Da Vinci, Gertrude Klimt, Henrietta Matisse, Francesca Goya, Paola Picasso, Fernanda Victoria Eugenia Delacroix, Wilhelmina Ottilia Dix, and over 50 other artists (let us not forget Vincenza Van Gogh)?
Another History is your chance to find out. Included, on each page opposite the painting, is a single paragraph biography of each woman artist.
Another History of Art is a brilliantly satirical, and, yes, feminist, counterfactual history of art conceived, written, and painted by one of our most accomplished contemporary artists.

In the tradition of The Road and The Stand, Eisner Award-nominated writer-artist Jeff Lemire (THE NOBODY, Essex County) presents a bold new postapocalyptic vision of the fate of humankind, the values of innocence, and the unexpected friendships that can emerge in even the darkest of places with SWEET TOOTH BOOK ONE.
Seven years ago, the Affliction raged like a forest fire, killing billions. The only children born since are part of a new breed of human-animal hybrids. Gus is one of these children: a boy with a sweet soul, a sweeter tooth—and the features of a deer.
But kids like Gus have a price on their heads. When vicious hunters descend on his isolated forest home, a mysterious and violent man called Jepperd rescues Gus. The hulking drifter promises to lead Gus to the Preserve, a fabled safe haven for hybrid children.
As the two cross this dangerous new American frontier, will Jepperd corrupt the boy he’s nicknamed “Sweet Tooth,” or will Gus’ heart change Jepperd?
