KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Emilia Laatikainen: Kadonneet

Kadonnut henkilö voidaan Suomen lain mukaan julistaa kuolleeksi viiden vuoden kuluttua siitä, kun hän ollut tiettävästi viimeksi elossa.

Suomessa katoaa vuosittain lyhytaikaisesti jopa tuhansia ihmisiä, joista noin 20 jää selittämättömästi kateisiin. Jokaisella kadonneella on oikeus tulla löydetyksi riippumatta taustastaan, elintavoistaan ja virkavallan resursseista.
Näiden sarjakuvien tarkoitus ei ole luoda skandaaleja, etsiä syyllisiä tai kauhistella kenenkään elämänvalintoja. Tavoite on jäsentää tieto yhdelle sivulle, jotta katoaminen saisi ansaitsemansa huomion, ja joku ehkä muistaisi lisää.

Lauri Mäkimurto: Tuuli kääntyy ja kello lyö

“Tämä on vähän niin kuin tekotaiteellinen Kotikatsomon jakso.”

Häiriö ja harmonia

Sfäärien musiikkia ja arjen soraääniä, soitinten sulosäveliä ja tolkutonta mekkalointia.

Turun sarjakuvakerhon antologiassa tasapainotellaan tänä vuonna häiriön ja harmonian välillä.

Antologia sisältää 16 eripituista novellia, joissa hiljennytään kuuntelemaan universumin kohinaa, käännetään nupit reilusti kaakkoon tai marssitaan täysin omassa tahdissa.

Viivi Rintanen: Sarjakuvaterapiaa ja muita kertomuksia hulluudesta

Sarjakuvaterapiaa ja muita kertomuksia hulluudesta kuvaa sitä, miltä tuntuu olla sekaisin.

Kahdentoista sarjakuvanovellin takana ovat todelliset henkilöt, joiden mielenterveystarinat Viivi Rintanen kuvitti Hulluussarjakuvia-blogiinsa.

“Idea Hulluussarjakuvista virisi ymmärrettyäni, etten ole ainoa, joka häpeää hulluuttaan ja haluaa vapautua siitä. Jos hulluudesta ei pääse eroon, ehkä sentään häpeästä.”
Kirjan kehyskertomus käsittelee aikaa, jolloin Viivi piirsi muiden kokemuksia sarjakuviksi ja kävi psykoterapiassa läpi omaa elämäänsä.
Mihin se johtaa, kun vuosia syömishäiriön ja loppuunpalamisen välillä sahannut nainen puhuu terapeutille äidistään, koirastaan, kuntosalinsa anorektisesta juoksijasta ja inhoamastaan lifestyle-bloggaajasta?

Omaelämäkerrallinen terapiakuvaus nivoo kaikki kertomukset yhteen ja näyttää myötätunnon, puhumisen ja kuuntelemisen muutosvoiman.

Taina Hakala: Merkintöjä Koronakevät 2020

Sarjakuvapäiväkirjaan tallennettu aikalaisdokumentti koronakevään arjesta ja tunteista.

Pauli Kallio: Ammatti: käsikirjoittaja

Pauli Kallio ei tiennyt pienenä, mikä hänestä tulee isona.

Epätietoinen taiteilijasielu keksi vasta kolmikymppisenä työn, joka sopii hänen lahjoilleen ja luonteelleen: hänestä tuli Suomen ensimmäinen ja ainoa päätoiminen sarjakuvien käsikirjoittaja.

Kirja kokoaa yhteen parikymmentä Kallion kirjoittamaa lehtisarjakuvaa. Kramppeja & nyrjähdyksiä, Ornette Birks Makkonen, FC Palloseura, Sekametsä, Onnen lahjat ja Lyhenevä kesä ovat tutuimpia. Niille tekevät seuraa Suhteita ja suhteettomuuksia, Annan ja Oton olohuone, Josefiina leipoo, Sirri ja Rautiainen sekä monet muut vähemmän tunnetut.

Piirtäjälista hakee vertaistaan: JP Ahonen, Saila Juuti, Ulf K, Jussi Karjalainen, Kati Kovács, Maarit Kytöharju, Karri Laitinen, Mika Lietzén, Jan Lindström, Reetta Niemensivu, Christer Nuutinen, Pentti Otsamo, Ville Pirinen, Tomi Riionheimo, Jii Roikonen, Tiitu Takalo, Petteri Tikkanen, J. Tilsa, Piipa Toivonen, Sami Toivonen, Katja Tukiainen ja Sami Vähä-Aho.

Teos on paitsi muhkea sarjakuvakokoelma myös tietokirja, joka kertoo, kuinka sarjakuvat syntyvät käsikirjoittajan ja piirtäjän yhteistyönä. Kallion ja taiteilijoiden kommentit kuvaavat sarjakuvantekijän arkipäivää ja juhlahetkiä. Samalla opus valottaa suomalaisen lehtisarjakuvan lähihistoriaa, nykyisyyttä ja tulevaisuutta.

Taina Hakala: Helene – Maalarin matka

Nuori Schjerfbeck lähtee 1880-luvulla ulkomaille opiskelemaan.

Simon Stålenhag: Liittymiä

Droonisotien jälkeinen Amerikka vuonna 1997.

Teini-ikäinen Michelle matkaa lelurobotin kanssa länsirannikon poikki etsien kadonnutta veljeään.

Autioitunutta maisemaa hallitsevat jättimäiset sodassa särkyneet taistelurobotit ja laajennettuun todellisuuteen koukkuun jääneet ihmisrauniot.

Valtameren lähestyessä Michellen on pakko myöntää, että enää ei ole normaalin vyöhykettä, johon palata – ainoa tie ulos on edessäpäin.

Liittymiä on yhtä aikaa silmiä hivelevän kaunis ja vatsaa kuristavan rujo kuvitettu romaani.

Tukholmalainen Simon Stålenhag (s. 1984) on kansainvälisesti tunnustettu kirjailija ja kuvittaja, joka yhdistelee töissään retrofuturistista teknologisen kehityksen kuvausta tunnistettavaan ja nostalgiseen maisemakuvaukseen.
Hänen esikoisteoksensa Ur Varselklotet (2014) pohjalta on tehty Amazon Primen tv-sarja Tales from the Loop (2020).
Liittymiä on ensimmäinen Stålenhagilta suomennettu teos.

Anne Streng: Kulkijoiden juhlat

Kulkijoiden juhlat on sadunomainen kertomus Fredeika-tytöstä, joka elämän näennäisen perusrakenteen sortuessa tempautuu mukaan fantasian täyttämälle vaellukselle.

Salaperäisen kulkijan johdattelemana koetut monivaiheiset tapahtumat lujittavat hänen uskoaan elämän pysyviin arvoihin, hyvyyden ja toivon olemassaoloon.

Anne Streng (s. 1956) on myrskyläläinen puutarhuri, jonka sarjakuvia leimaa runollisuus ja humaani ihmisen ja luonnon suhteen tarkastelu.

Jarkko Vehniäinen: Apostolin sandaalit

Apostolien tekoja sarjakuvamuodossa Jarkko Vehniäisen omaperäiseen tyyliin!

Apostolin sandaalit on yhteisnide kahdesta Aikamedialle tehdystä albumista, Apostolin kyydillä ja Sandaalit sauhuten. Se on riemukas sarjakuvaseikkailu, joka kertoo apostolien teoista Asterix-henkiseen tyyliin.
Näin hauskasti Paavalin, Pietarin ja kumppanien reissuja ei ole vielä kuvattu!

Täydellinen lahja esimerkiksi rippikoululaiselle!

Kari T. Leppänen: Aurinkoalus

Aurinkoalus vie lukijan nostalgiselle matkalle vuosina 1972-74 ilmestyneen Sarjis-lehden maailmaan. Veikko “Joonas” Savolaisen toimittama lehti toimi ponnahduslautana useille tämän hetken eturivin sarjakuvantekijöistämme.

Yksi heistä oli Kari T. Leppänen (s.1945), joka tunnetaan nykyisin parhaiten kansainvälisestä urastaan Mustanaamio-sarjakuvan piirtäjänä. Tämä albumi sisältää Leppäsen Sarjis-lehteen Oskari-nimimerkillä tekemät yhdeksän sarjakuvaa sekä tekijän aiheeseen johdattelevan esipuheen.

Jarkko Vehniäinen: Daniel & kumppanit

Danielia varjeltiin leijonilta, Bartimeus sai näön, Jerikon vesi muuttui hyväksi ja leski sai rahat velanmaksuun.

Jännittävä sarjakuva tempaa mukaansa!

Jarkko Vehniäisen Daniel ja kumppanit on kokoelma Jees-lehdessä ilmestyneitä sarjakuvia.

Timo Varpio & Sami Toivonen: Kuningaspolku

Kuningaspolku on piirtäjä Sami Toivosen ja käsikirjoittaja Timo Varpion toinen yhteinen albumi.

Derf Backderf: Kent State – Four Dead in Ohio

On May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard gunned down unarmed college students protesting the Vietnam War at Kent State University.

In a deadly barrage of 67 shots, 4 students were killed and 9 shot and wounded.
It was the day America turned guns on its own children – a shocking event burned into our national memory.

A few days prior, 10-year-old Derf Backderf saw those same Guardsmen patrolling his nearby hometown, sent in by the governor to crush a trucker strike.
Using the journalism skills he employed on ‘My Friend Dahmer’ and ‘Trashed’, Backderf has conducted extensive interviews and research to explore the lives of these four young people and the events of those four days in May, when the country seemed on the brink of tearing apart.
‘Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio’, which will be published in time for the 50th anniversary of the tragedy, is a moving and troubling story about the bitter price of dissent-as relevant today as it was in 1970.

In addition to featuring the more well-known cartoonists of the era, such as Ethel Hays, Nell Brinkley, and Virginia Huget, Eisner award-winning Trina Robbins introduces you to Eleanor Schorer, who started her career in the teens as a flowery art nouveau Nell Brinkley imitator but, by the ’20s, was drawing bold and outrageous art deco illustrations; Edith Stevens, who chronicled the fashion trends, hairstyles, and social manners of the ’20s and ’30s in the pages of The Boston Globe; and Virginia Huget, possibly the flappiest of the Flapper Queens, whose girls, with their angular elbows and knees, seemed to always exist in a euphoric state of Charleston.

Victor Santos: Against Hope

It has been years since an insane family of neo-Nazis murdered her boyfriend and almost killed Hope, now she is tracking them down and exacting her bloody revenge.

First featured as a webcomic series on Tapas, Fangs chronicles the humor, sweetness, and awkwardness of meeting someone perfectly suited to you but also vastly different.

Alejandro Jodorowsky: The Panic Fables

The complete series of filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s spiritual comics, translated into English for the first time.

– Contains all 284 of Jodo’s Panic Fables comics, published weekly from 1967 to 1973 in Mexico City’s El Heraldo newspaper
– Includes an introduction describing how the Panic Fables came to be
– Explains how he incorporated Zen teachings, initiatory wisdom, and sacred symbology into his Panic Fables, as well as himself as one of the characters

In 1967, in response to theatrical censorship rules that put him on the political “black list” in Mexico City and caused his plays and his pantomime classes at the School of Fine Arts to be cancelled, Alejandro Jodorowsky decided to pursue a new form of artistic expression to earn his living: comics.
Working with his friend Luis Spota, the editor of the cultural section of the newspaper El Heraldo de México, Jodo initially planned 3 months’ worth of weekly comics, which he would draw himself.
However, his “Panic Fables”–named after his early ’60s avant-garde theater movement in Paris–were met with such insatiable popularity that he continued the series for six and a half years, from June 1967 until December 1973.

Appearing for the first time in English, this book presents all 284 of Jodorowsky’s Panic Fables in full color, along with an introduction by the author.
He reveals how his first comics reflected his pessimism about the future and the meaning of life, the negativity of which soon exhausted him. He realized he needed to show the positivity that he encountered in life, and thus, little by little, he began incorporating Zen teachings, initiatory wisdom, and sacred symbology into his Panic Fables.
Through this transformation and the outpouring of support from his devoted readers, many of whom cite the Panic Fables as providing pivotal guidance during their adolescence, Jodo discovered that art can serve to heal as well as raise consciousness.

Writing himself into his comics, Jodo can be glimpsed as the character of the disciple who talks with his master and, as the series progresses, gradually grows to assume the role of master, providing psychomagic solutions to the problems of everyday life.
In reading the complete Panic Fables in chronological order, much like his film The Dance of Reality, we witness in colorful detail Jodorowsky’s own path of spiritual growth.

John Constantine, Hellblazer 23 – No Future

Plus, discover the centuries-long history of the King of Voodoo, and original Hellblazer writer Jamie Delano returns to John Constantine, alongside superstar artist Jock!

Gilbert Hernandez: Garden of the Flesh

Award-winning cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez gives his own unique spin to Bible tales in this graphic novel.

As only the unfettered Id of Gilbert Hernandez could conceive, Garden of Flesh is a sexually explicit retelling of the story of Adam and Eve up to Noah’s Ark.

Hernandez presents a straightforward adaptation of the Bible parable, but one that also blurs the lines between erotica and pornography, as only Hernandez can.

Faith Erin Hicks: Comics Will Break Your Heart

Comics Will Break Your Heart is a sweet, funny contemporary teen romance for the inner geek in all of us from graphic novelist Faith Erin Hicks.

Miriam’s family should be rich.
After all, her grandfather was the co-creator of smash-hit comics series The TomorrowMen. But he sold his rights to the series to his co-creator in the 1960s for practically nothing, and now that’s what Miriam has: practically nothing.
And practically nothing to look forward to either. How can she afford college when her family can barely keep a roof above their heads?

As if she didn’t have enough to worry about, Miriam’s life gets much more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town . . . and turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam’s grandfather, and heir to the TomorrowMen fortune.

In her endearing debut novel, cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks pens a sensitive and funny Romeo and Juliet tale about modern romance, geek royalty, and what it takes to heal the long-festering scars of the past (Spoiler Alert: love).

Blake Bell & Dr. Michael J. Vassallo: The Secret History of Marvel Comics

The Secret History of Marvel Comics: Jack Kirby and the Moonlighting Artists at Martin Goodman’s Empire digs back to the 1930s when Marvel Comics wasn’t just a comic-book producing company.

Marvel was but a small part of owner Martin Goodman’s publishing empire, which had begun years before he published his first comic book.
Goodman mostly published lurid and sensationalist story books (known as pulps) and magazines, featuring sexually charged detective and romance short fiction and celebrity gossip scandal sheets.

Artists like Jack Kirby, who was producing Captain America for eight-year-olds, were dipping their toes in both ponds.
The Secret History of Marvel Comics tells this parallel story of 1930s/40s Marvel Comics sharing offices with those Goodman publications not quite fit for children.
