ENNAKKOTILAUKSET

Anne Muhonen: Älä unohda minua (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. KIRJA SAATAVILLA ARVIOLTA 13.8.2021.

Kun kukkakauppias Hilla ottaa nuoren Eeron luokseen työharjoitteluun, hän joutuu samalla kohtaamaan myös oman menneisyytensä.

Anne Muhosen 17. sarjakuva-albumi, “Älä unohda minua”, on tarina huomatuksi tulemisen merkityksestä.

Jokaisella tulisi olla joku, johon luottaa.

Matti Hagelberg: Läskimooses (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 23.8.2021.

Läskimooses on kaikenkattava kertomus maailman synnystä, historiasta ja tuhosta.

Totuus siitä, mitä kaiken tämän takana oikeasti on.
Salaliittoteorioiden salaliittoteoria ja sen kertominen Kaleville. Läskimooses on Matti Hagelbergin lähes 1500-sivuinen sarjakuvajättiläinen kolmessa niteessä, pakattuna upeaan koteloon.

Siinä on 150 sivua enemmän kuin Raamatussa eikä mitään ylimääräistä.

1. kirja: Maailman kirkas aamunkoitto
2. kirja: Päivän tuoksuvalla hetkellä
3. kirja: Here comes trouble

”Emmä sano että niin on, mutta mä mietin: Entä jos onkin?” –Kalevi

”Viimeistään sen [kirjan] julkaisun myötä Läskimooses nostetaan kansainvälisen sarjakuvakaapin päälle koko nykytaidemaailman ihasteltavaksi ja kaikki puhuvat tästä suoma(a)laisesta modernin sarjakuvailmaisun kulmakivestä. Pikkasenko muuten sitten torilla tavataan!” –Ville Pirinen, Kulttuuritoimitus

”Läskimooses-teos käsittelee salaliittoteorioita ja muita uskomuksia, mutta sen lukukokemus – sellaisena kuin Hagelberg sen tarkoitti – muistuttaa tieteen alati täydentyvää maailmankuvaa.” –Harri Römpötti, Helsingin sanomat

Läskimooses on ilmestynyt Kreegah bundolo -kustantamon lehtenä vuosina 2012–2020. Teoksen kuvankäsittelyn on tehnyt Hans Nissen.

Tuomas Myllylä: Jumalsurma – Toinen kirja (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 1.9.2021.

Sodan liekit tuhoavat pohjolaa, kun jumalten sota Silarien mahtavaa keisarikuntaa vastaan kiihtyy.

Voitoista huolimatta jumalten välinen hauras rauha on jo rakoilemassa, ja petos ja epäsopu vaanivat pinnan alla.

Rintamalinjojen välissä pieni joukko pakolaisia etsii tietään ulos vihamielisestä maasta.
Heitä johtaa Hrotgar, Jumalsurmana tunnettu vanha soturi. Apunaan hurja peikkoberserkki Thurinn ja elävä miekka Irkana, hän on vannonut tappavansa kaikki pohjolan jumalat ihmiskunnan puolesta.

Päästäkseen tavoitteeseensa hän joutuu kamppailemaan tiensä läpi Venderon petollisten soiden, missä vaanivat niin paikallisten heimojen pääkallonmetsästäjät kuin suurten muinaisten olentojen viha.

Mutta päämäärässä odottavat yllättävät haasteet: jumalilla on omat suunnitelmansa Hrotgarin suhteen, ja kaiken kamppailun jälkeen hän saattaakin olla itse se ase, joka vie hänen vihollisensa lopulliseen voittoon.

Suvi Ermilä: Vastaanottokeskus (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 3.9.2021.

Vuosina 2015-16 kärjistynyt pakolaiskriisi toi Suomeen enimmillään kolmessa kuukaudessa noin 32 000 turvapaikanhakijaa, pääosin Syyriasta, Afganistanista ja Irakista.

Suvi Ermilän tähänastinen pääteos sijoittuu vastaanottokeskukseen, jollaisiin turvapaikkaa hakeneet sijoitettiin odottamaan viranomaisten päätöksiä.
Arki on hidasta ja odottavaa, tulokkaat kelluvat menneen ja tulevan epävarmassa välitilassa.

Kirja sisältää pari tusinaa novellimaista tarinaa.
Kertomukset nivoutuvat kokonaisuudeksi, joka käsittelee pakolaisten ahdinkoa, yksinäisyyttä ja turhautumista, virkamiesten moraalisia pohdintoja ja laitosarjen absurdiutta. Kohtaamisen vaikeus tuo perusvireeltään apeaan teokseen omintakeista kuivaa komiikkaa.

SUVI ERMILÄ (s. 1985) on paitsi sarjakuvataiteilija myös sosionomi, joka on työskennellyt ohjaajana eri vastaanottokeskuksissa vuosina 2010-2018. Häneltä on ilmestynyt aiemmin kaksi sarjakuvakirjaa, Hauho (2017) ja Jälki (2018).

Jarkko Räihä: Pekurinen (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 3.9.2021.

Arndt Pekurinen (1905-1941) lienee Suomen tunnetuin aseistakieltäytyjä.

Pekurisen kuolemasta tulee 5.11.2021 kuluneeksi 80 vuotta, mutta nuorena kuolleen pasifistin sanoma ei ole vanhentunut. Pekurinen vastusti ehdottomasti väkivaltaa ja kieltäytyi kaikesta sotakoneistoa hyödyttävästä toiminnasta.
Hän oli valmis palvelemaan jossakin muussa valtion osoittamassa työssä, mutta 1920-luvulla vain uskonnollinen vakaumus hyväksyttiin kieltäytymisen perusteeksi.

Tämä johti vankilakierteeseen, mutta lopulta myös ensimmäisen siviilipalveluslain säätämiseen, joka vuonna 1931 mahdollisti aseistakieltäytymisen eettisen vakaumuksen vuoksi. Laki koski vain rauhanaikaa, ja Pekurinen teloitettiin rintamalla suomalaisjoukkojen Neuvostoliitolta valtaamalla alueella. Hänestä haluttiin tehdä maanpuolustushenkeä kohottava varoittava esimerkki.

Jarkko Räihän sarjakuvaromaani Pekurinen pureutuu lakimuutosta edeltävään parin vuoden ajanjaksoon. Kieltäytyjä kohtaa kutsuntavirkailijat, keskuspoliisin kuulustelijat, Lapinlahden psykiatrit, Suomenlinnan kurikomppanian vartijat ja Lapuan liikkeen muiluttajat, mutta ei tingi periaatteistaan.

Pentti Otsamo: Välittäjä – Kauppa-Lopo kaukana, kaukana Kuopiosta (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 3.9.2021.

Pentti Otsamon (s. 1967) käsikirjoittama ja piirtämä Välittäjä perustuu Minna Canthin novelliin Kauppa-Lopo.

Vuonna 1889 ilmestynyt naturalistinen alkuteos korosti sitä, että ihmisen arvo tai luonne ei riipu hänen syntyperästään tai yhteiskunnallisesta asemastaan.
Otsamon kaukaisiin galakseihin kulkeva versio yhdistää Canthin klassikkoteoksen eetoksen ja piirtäjän teinivuosien scifiin painottuneet kulttuurivaikutteet.

1970- ja 80-luvun vaihteessa Kirjayhtymän scifi-sarja vei vieraille planeetoille ja tulevaisuuteen, samoin television Avaruusasema Alfa ja Taisteluplaneetta Galactica sekä Mustan aukon, Kolmannen asteen yhteyden ja Star Wars -sarjan ensimmäisten osien kaltaiset elokuvat.

Välittäjän tärkeimmät herätteet tulevat kuitenkin Pierre Christinin, Jean-Claude Mézièresin, Enki Bilalin ja Moebiuksen sarjakuvista. Otsamon avaus tieteissarjakuvan saralla säteilee samaa häikäisevää valoa kuin lajityypin kiintotähtien työt.

Pauli Kallio & Juliana Hyrri: Kalle, Kaneli ja kipsi (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 3.9.2021.

Kallen ja Kanelin korkealentoiset seikkailut jatkuvat lapsille suunnatun sarjan toisessa osassa.

Kaneli pimputtaa pianoa ja Kalle sahaa selloa Huttuvainion musiikkiopistossa. Molemmat potkivat palloa Huttulammen Palloseuran junioreissa, kunnes toinen heistä kapuaa koivuun noutamaan oksanhaaraan jumittunutta jalkapalloa.

Kipeä kömmähdys johdattaa sankarimme Huttuvaaran terveyskeskukseen, jossa he kohtaavat sairaanhoitaja Keijo Kolhuvaaran, tohtori Huttu-Vellisen sekä röntgensisko Säde Rönniläisen ja päätyvät lopuksi kipsimestari Kari Kallisen kabinettiin.

Palloton ja selloton toipilasaika kuluu kiduttavan hitaasti, mutta elämänilo voittaa viimeistään silloin, kun kipsille heitetään hyvästit ja Huuhkajien maalitykki Teemu Pukki tupsahtaa Hupsin harjoituksiin.

Pauli Kallio & Reetta Niemensivu: Lyhenevä kesä 4 – Annikki ja poppamiehet (ENNAKKOTILAUS)

ENNAKOTILAUS. ARVIOITU ILMESTYMISPÄIVÄ 3.9.2021.

Anteron, Annikin ja Jaakon seikkailujen neljäs nide avaa ovet ja ikkunat vuoden 1970 ennätyspitkään kesään, jonka sinitaivasta pilvet harvoin varjostavat.

Pojat perustavat bändin, mutta meluisa euforia lässähtää, kun he huomaavat joutuneensa laulutaitoisen Annikin taustamuusikoiksi.
Ihmeellistä luontoa ei tarvitse etsiä television ainoalta kanavalta, sillä siihen törmää kotipihassa, järvellä ja lähimetsässä.
Jaakko ja Antero eivät pääse yksimielisyyteen siitä, onko Kinnunen kovempi keihäänheittäjä kuin Nevala vai päinvastoin.
Annikin perusturvallisuus järkkyy, kun käy ilmi, että hänen isosiskonsa osaa olla kiva.
Antero ja hänen kiharapäinen, kitaraa rämpyttävä mielikuvituskaverinsa käyvät syvällisen keskustelun rusinoiden tehtävästä ja tarkoituksesta.

Eikä siinä ole vielä läheskään kaikki, sillä Peppi Pitkätossu ja Ratsupoliisi King nelistävät kesämaisemiin yllätysvierailulle.

Joe Sacco: Paying the Land

From the “heir to R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman” (Economist), a masterful work of comics journalism about indigenous North America, resource extraction, and our debt to the natural world.

The Dene have lived in the vast Mackenzie River Valley since time immemorial, by their account.
To the Dene, the land owns them, not the other way around, and it is central to their livelihood and very way of being. But the subarctic Canadian Northwest Territories are home to valuable resources, including oil, gas, and diamonds.
With mining came jobs and investment, but also road-building, pipelines, and toxic waste, which scarred the landscape, and alcohol, drugs, and debt, which deformed a way of life.

In Paying the Land, Joe Sacco travels the frozen North to reveal a people in conflict over the costs and benefits of development.
The mining boom is only the latest assault on indigenous culture: Sacco recounts the shattering impact of a residential school system that aimed to “remove the Indian from the child”; the destructive process that drove the Dene from the bush into settlements and turned them into wage laborers; the government land claims stacked against the Dene Nation; and their uphill efforts to revive a wounded culture.

Against a vast and gorgeous landscape that dwarfs all human scale, Paying the Land lends an ear to trappers and chiefs, activists and priests, to tell a sweeping story about money, dependency, loss, and culture–recounted in stunning visual detail by one of the greatest cartoonists alive.

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2020 BY THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE GUARDIAN, THE BROOKLYN RAIL, THE GLOBE AND MAIL, POP MATTERS, COMICS BEAT, AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
