Liv Strömquist: Punaisin ruusu puhkeaa kukkaan
Leonardo DiCaprio on seurustellut kymmenien uimapukumallien kanssa, mutta ei ole rakastunut yhteenkään heistä.
Miksi? Onko syynä kapitalismi, DiCaprion narsismi vai evoluutio? Eikö Leo ole vain sattunut tapaamaan sitä oikeaa?
Ja ennen kaikkea: emmekö me kaikki nykyään ole vähän samanlaisia kuin Leo?
Liv Strömquist tarkastelee tässä sarjakuva-albumissaan myöhäiskapitalistisen ajan romantiikkaa ja rakkautta.
Miksi meidän on yhä vaikeampi rakastua? Voiko rakkautta hallita? Entä mitä tapahtuu silloin, kun rakkaus loppuu? Miksi olemme niin tunteettomia?
Vastauksia etsiessään Strömquist käyttää tuttuun tyyliinsä apunaan kiinnostavia tieteellisiä teorioita, historian merkkihenkilöitä ja populaarikulttuurin hahmoja Beyoncésta antiikin filosofeihin ja smurffeista Sören Kierkegaardiin.
Miksi Theseus jätti Ariadnen? Millainen oli lady Caroline Lambin ja lordi Byronin suhde?
Albumin nimi on lainattu 74-vuotiaana palavasti rakastuneen runoilija Hilda Doolittlen (H. D.) rakkausrunosta.
Kaiken kruunaa Strömquistille ominainen älykäs huumori.

Kuvaukset eivät suju helposti ja hauskasti, vaan menneisyyden haamut nousevat kummittelemaan, ja vaikuttavat ihmissuhdeverkkoon, joka tihenee kun salaisuudet alkavat paljastua. Mitä tapahtui Tornin asukkaille?
Huojuva Torni on kertomus ihmisyydestä ja identiteetistä, sukupolvien ja sukupuolten välisistä sodista ja sovituksesta.

Keiler Roberts: My Begging Chart
Keiler Roberts mines the passing moments of family life to deliver an affecting and funny account of what it means to simultaneously exist as a mother, daughter, wife, and artist.
Drawn in an unassuming yet charming staccato that mimics the awkward rhythm of life, no one’s foibles are left unspared, most often the author’s own.
When Roberts considers whether or not to dust the ceiling fan, it’s effectively relevant. She can get lost in the rewarding melodrama of playing Barbies with her daughter and will momentarily snap out of her depression.
Her harmless fibs to get through the moment are brought up by her daughter a year or two later, yet without hesitation Roberts will request that her daughter’s imaginary friend not visit when she is around. Her MS diagnosis lingers in the background, never taking center stage.
In My Begging Chart, her most encompassing work yet, Keiler meditates on routine and stillness. The vignettes of her everyday life exude immense presence, making her comics thoroughly relatable and reflective of our all-too-human lives as they unfold with humour, sadness, and relieving joy.
In transporting these stories onto paper, Keiler observes, and at times relishes, a fleeting present.

Pierre Christin & Sebastien Verdier: Orwell
An intimate look at the life and work of England’s greatest novelist and political essayist, and author of the dystopian masterpiece 1984
George Orwell’s most celebrated work, 1984, and the prescient vision it contains of a society governed by Big Brother, predates the constant monitoring of people and data we are familiar with today by over 70 years.
But his life was every bit as fascinating and forward-looking as his books. Orwell studied at Eton, joined the police in Burma, fought in the Spanish Civil War, fiercely opposed Stalinism, and lived in London’s slums while working as a journalist.
With illustrations by a team of artists including Juanjo Guarnido, Enki Bilal, Manu Larcenet, Blutch and André Juillard, Pierre Christin and Sébastien Verdier’s Orwell offers readers an intimate yet definitive portrait of our greatest political writer.
“Christin, Verdier, et al. have pulled off a rare feat. They have taken one of the most straightforward writers in the English language and made his canon and life story more accessible.” – The Orwell Society
Frank King: Sundays with Walt and Skeezix
Collected for the first time here are the best of King’s early Gasoline Alley Sunday comics, starting from the very first Sunday in 1921, reprinted in the original size and colors.
King’s innovations in art, layout and storytelling brought a new warmth and style to the medium at the dawn of the Golden Age of newspaper comic strips.
If you are interested in the development of this unique American art form, or simply love beautiful comics, this sumptuous volume is a masterpiece in comic art, and a must for your collection.
Like McCay, Feininger, Herriman, and others of that era, King was a graphic innovator.
His panoramic layouts, themed styling, and whimsical cartoon conceits explored new artistic methods. But he also had a great knowledge of story and character, presented with a warmth and humanity never seen before in comics, and rarely done as well since.
He went beyond the gags and slapstick of his contemporaries to create vignettes of genuinely human characters; showing them relating to each other and, particularly in his Sunday comics, to the world around them.
