KOTIMAISET UUTUUDET

Francois Walthéry: Natasha 3 – Cherchemidin vyö

VARASTOLÖYTÖ.

Nataša on kuvankaunis ranskalainen lentoemäntä, joka valloitti lukijansa jo aikoinaan esiintyessään Ruutu- ja Non Stop -sarjakuvalehdissä.

Tässä albumissa Nataša ja stuertti Walter päättävät viettää rauhallisen loman Etelä-Ranskassa, mutta he törmäävätkin tohtori Cherchemidiin, joka on kehittänyt mullistavan keksinnön.
Cherchemidin vyö suojelee kantajaansa kaikelta ulkoiselta uhalta, mikä herättää välittömästi rikollisten piirien kiinnostuksen.
Nataša ja Walter yrittävät pelastaa omaperäisen Cherchemidin armottomilta kidnappaajiltaan, ja matkan varrella niin Marseillen kuin Pyreneidenkin maisemat joutuvat todistamaan henkeäsalpaavaa seikkailua…

Pahkasika 12 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 12, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1982.

Pahkasika numeron 12 sivuilla ovat koolla jo lähes kaikki Pahkasian keskeisimmät kirjoittajat ja piirtäjät. Kiirehtipä lehden päätoimittaja heti tuoreeltaan julistamaan numeron siihenastisista parhaaksi.

Pahkasian 12. numerossa alkaa huippusuosittu käytännön piloja -sarja. Ensimmäisenä ovat käsittelyssä käytännön pilat liikenteessä.
Vanhat herrat ovat taistelulentäjiä vanhojen Korkkareiden henkessä.
Hiljennymme myös ikuisuuskysymyksen äärellä: onko luontoon menemistä?
Tässä numerossa on myös ensimmäinen Pahkasika-News-palsta.

Ensimmäinen Pahkasika ilmestyi vuonna 1975. Kaikkiaan Pahkasikoja on ilmestynyt 79 numeroa. Lähes kaikki on myyty jo loppuun – osa jo vuosikymmenet sitten.

Kaikista Pahkasian numeroista julkaistaan uudet painokset. Remasteroidut sivut, parannettu painojälki, täydelliset versiot. Rajoitettu painos.

Pahkis 12:n kannessa on 1930-luvun henkeen sovitettu muotokuva Lea Liidosta. Sisäsivulla on aukeaman juttu nuoren neitokaisen viimeisestä lennosta. Tämä artikkeli oli ensimmäinen – ja ilmeisesti ainoa – kerta, jolloin Pahkasika julkaisi jutun, jonka tarkoitus oli olla surullinen.

Pahkasika 13 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 13, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasika numero 13 on todellinen tee-se-itse-väen unelmapakkaus. Albumin sivuilla neuvotaan, miten tavallisesta Hooverin pölynimurista saa värkättyä atomipommin, kuinka wc-pöntöstä tulee näppärä pikkupyykkäri ja miten vaativatkin lääketieteelliset toimenpiteet – mukaan lukien lobotomialeikkaukset – voi suorittaa itse Pahkasian korilääkärioppaan avulla.

Maailma on muuttunut paljon vuosikymmenien saatossa. Esimerkiksi artikkelissa Merkillisiä kivipatsaita kerrotaan tutkimusmatkailija Thor Heyerdahlin löytämästä Ahvenanmeren pienestä saaresta, johon on pystytetty useita yli kymmenmetrisiä Kekkosen kivipäitä, jotka kaikki katsovat itään. Nuoremmalle väelle tämä vitsi tuskin aukeaa, mutta yli 40-vuotiaille artikkeli on edelleen ruutia.

Numerossa 13 on myös legendaarinen Kansatiede-artikkeli, jossa professori Pietro-Oldemar Veturi käsittelee etnologiaa. Teksti on hauska sinältäänkin, mutta jos lukija on tarpeeksi iäkäs tietääkseen, mikä oli Pikkujättiläinen, paikat alkavat ratkeilla…

Vanhojen herrojen ensimmäinen pitkä sarjakuvaseikkailu Vanhojen herrojen poika puhuttelee kaikenikäisiä. Samoin vaikkapa Jurpon ja Pahkeisen varhaiset stripit. Muita klassikoita: Market-sarjakuva, Käytännön piloja rakkauselämässä ja Hämmelmäen hautalöytö.

Albumin kannessa esitellään maailman koko historia 210 kuvan pikakelauksena. Ajattele, mikä ajansäästö lukion laajempaan historiankurssiin verrattuna!

Pahkasika 14 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 14, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasian numerossa neljätoista on jo mukana joukko lehden tunnetuimpia vakiopalstoja, -juttuja ja -sarjakuvia. Mm: Vanhat herrat, Jurpo, käytännön pilat, Pahkasika News, leperrykset ja pahkamyyntiluettelot.

Numeron 14 kansikuvassa on otos eteläamerikkaiselta sokeriruokoviljelmältä. Albumi onkin nimetty suureksi Havanna-numeroksi – vaikka Havasta ei muuten ole koko niteessä sanaakaan.

Tämän albumin kolme Pahkis-fanien eniten muistelemaa juttua ovat: Miten hämäät tv-lupatarkastajaa, Vandaalikoulu ja Käytännön liimapilat.

Pahkasika 15 (remasteroitu)

Legendaarisen huumorilehti Pahkasian uusi painos. Remasteroitu versio numerosta 15, joka ilmestyi alunperin vuonna 1983.

Pahkasian 15. numero on todellinen tee-se-itse-alan toivepakkaus.
Pahkis neuvoo, miten aivan tavallisesta pahvilaatikosta voi konstruoida atomisuojan. Käsistään kätevä saa neuvot miten rakentaa toimiva sielu.
Lisäksi saamme tietää, keitä ovat ne ammattimiehet, jotka ovat valmistaneet kaikki baarien heiluvat pöydät, vaatekauppojen sovituskoppien liian kapeat oviverhot ja yleisten käymälöiden toimimattomat lukot.

Numeron 15 kansikuvassa näemme jotakin, mikä jakaa kansakunnan kahteen osaan: Vanhempi väki tunnistaa kannessa olevat kuvat oitis. Nuoremmille ne eivät merkitse mitään. Kyse on purukumipakkauksien mukana tulleista keräilykuvista, jotka olivat huippusuosittuja 1960-luvulla.

Tämän albumin kolme Pahkis-fanien eniten muistelemaa juttua ovat: Vanhojen herrojen kissa, Tee-se-itse atomisuoja ja Kaikki irti vahinkosattumuksista.

Shuzo Oshimi: Happiness 1

Nothing interesting in happening in Makoto Ozaki’s first year of high school.

His life is a series of quiet humiliations: low-grade bullies, unreliable friends, and the constant frustration of his adolescent lust. But one night, a pale, thin girl knocks him to the ground in an alley and offers him a choice.

Now everything is different.
Daylight is searingly bright. Food tastes awful. And worse than anything is the terrible, consuming thirst.
The tiny shames of his old life have been replaced by two towering horrors: the truth of what will slake his awful craving, and high school itself.

Paru Itagaki: Beastars 8

At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, friendships maintain the fragile peace. Who among them will become a Beastar–a hero destined to lead in a society naturally rife with mistrust?

Gray wolf Legoshi begins training with giant panda Gohin in order to better protect his friend, but he faces an ethical paradox when he is told he must eat meat to grow more powerful.
Meanwhile, herbivorous red deer Louis is choking down the flesh of beasts to maintain his status as the leader of a carnivorous lion gang. Yet when he runs into Legoshi carrying a bag of meat, Louis feels betrayed.

Johnny Gruelle: Mr. Twee Deedle – Raggedy Ann’s Sprightly Cousin

A spectacular re-presentation of a lost classic.

The second Marschall Books collection from Fantagraphics is a magnificent collection of Mr. Twee Deedle, Johnny Gruelle’s masterpiece, unjustly forgotten by history and never before reprinted since its first appearance in America’s newspapers from 1911 to 1914.

The title character in the Sunday color page, Mr. Twee Deedle, is a magical wood sprite who befriends the strip’s two human children, Dickie and Dolly.
Gruelle depicted a charming, fantastical child’s world, filled with light whimsy and outlandish surrealism. The artwork is among the most stunning ever to grace an American newspaper page, and Gruelle’s painterly color makes every page look like it was created on a canvas.

Gruelle’s creation was the winning entry out of 1500 submissions to succeed Little Nemo, which the New York Herald was losing at the time to the rival Hearst papers.
With such import, the Herald added a $2000 prize, a long contract, and arguably the most care devoted to the reproduction of any color newspaper comic strip before or since. Y
et the wood sprite and his fanciful world have been strangely overlooked, partly because Gruelle created Raggedy Ann immediately after the strip’s run, eclipsing not only Mr. Twee Deedle but almost everything else the cartoonist ever did.

Mr. Twee Deedle stands as a bizarre time-warp: at a time when most children’s literature and kids’ comic strips were somewhat violent or starkly moralistic (the Brothers Grimm; the Katzenjammer Kids; and even Little Nemo itself, which often depicted nightmares, fears, and dangers), Twee Deedle was sensitive and whimsical. Instead of stark moralizing, it presented gentle lessons.
It reads today like a work for the 21st century… indeed for all times, all ages.

Mr. Twee Deedle is edited and includes an introduction by comics historian Rick Marschall. The volume will present the first year of the forgotten masterpiece and selected episodes from later years, as well as special drawings, promotional material, and related artwork.

Shuzo Oshimi: Inside Mari 4

Komori’s apartment has led them to a dead-end.

Yet, after days without a reasonable lead to Mari’s whereabouts, one finds them.
Mari has called home!

Where has she been? Why has she disappeared? And why did she decide to make contact now?

John Stanley: Little Lulu – Working Girl

The first in a five-volume best-of series, featuring an introduction from Margaret Atwood!

Lulu Moppet is an outspoken and brazen young girl who doesn’t follow any rules–whether they’ve been set by her parents, the neighborhood boys, or society itself.

In 2019 D+Q begins a landmark full-color reissue series collecting five volumes of Lulu’s funniest suburban hijinks: she goes on picnics, babysits, and attempts to break into the boys’ clubhouse again and again.
Cartoonist John Stanley’s expert timing and constant gags made these stories unbelievably enjoyable, ensuring that Marge’s Little Lulu was a defining comic of the post-war period.

First released in the 1940s and 1950s as Dell comics, Little Lulu as helmed by Stanley remains one of the most entertaining works in the medium.
In this first volume, Little Lulu: Working Girl, we meet the series’ mainstay characters: Lulu, Tubby, Alvin, and oodles more neighbourhood kids. Little Lulu’s comedy lies in the hilarious dynamic between its cast of characters.

Lulu’s assertiveness, individuality, and creativity is empowering to witness–the series is powerfully feminist despite the decades in which the stories were created.
It’s the character’s strong personality that made her beloved by such feminist icons as Patti Smith, Eileen Myles, and more.

Lovingly restored to its original full color, complete with knee-slapping humor and an introduction by Margaret Atwood that explains the vitality of Lulu herself, Little Lulu: Working Girl is a delight for classic comics fans and the uninitiated.

Shuzo Oshimi: Inside Mari 5

With an unexpected clue, Yori and Isao are to wait for further contact from Mari.

Unfortunately, neither one of them is strong enough currently to handle this sudden turn of events.

Their next step will be to settle their differences with the hope that they’ll better understand Mari’s troubles.

Darwyn Cooke & Tim Sale: Superman – Kryptonite The Deluxe Edition

Legendary, award-winning creator Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) joins forces with acclaimed artist Tim Sale (BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN) for this edition of SUPERMAN: KRYPTONITE DELUXE EDITION!

This classic graphic novel features an unforgettable story of Superman’s first encounter with Kryptonite, the radioactive chunks of his home planet which can kill him and how it changed his life forever!
And even if the Man of Steel can survive, will he be able to save Lois Lane from the clutches of a mysterious stranger?

This deluxe hardcover graphic novel features covers, behind-the-scenes sketches and scripts from Cooke and Sale.

Shuzo Oshimi: Inside Mari 6

As “Mari” grows closer to Yori and Isao, it becomes apparent that the three may not be together for too much longer.

The plan always was to join forces to find the real Mari; not collaborate to rescue Isao Komori from his pathetic life.

Jason Lutes: Berlin

During the past two decades, Jason Lutes has quietly created one of the masterworks of the graphic novel golden age.

Berlin is one of the high-water marks of the medium: rich in its well-researched historical detail, compassionate in its character studies, and as timely as ever in its depiction of a society slowly awakening to the stranglehold of fascism.

Berlin is an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens—Marthe Müller, a young woman escaping the memory of a brother killed in World War I, Kurt Severing, an idealistic journalist losing faith in the printed word as fascism and extremism take hold; the Brauns, a family torn apart by poverty and politics.
Lutes weaves these characters’ lives into the larger fabric of a city slowly ripping apart.

The city itself is the central protagonist in this historical fiction.
Lavish salons, crumbling sidewalks, dusty attics, and train stations: all these places come alive in Lutes’ masterful hand.
Weimar Berlin was the world’s metropolis, where intellectualism, creativity, and sensuous liberal values thrived, and Lutes maps its tragic, inevitable decline.
Devastatingly relevant and beautifully told, Berlin is one of the great epics of the comics medium.

Jeff Lemire & Andrea Sorrentino: Joker – Killer Smile

The Eisner-nominated creative team of writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino (Green Arrow, Gideon Falls) reunite for a psychological horror story that delves into the bottomless insanity of The Joker.

Gina Siciliano: I Know What I Am – The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi

This is a graphic biography of a pioneering woman painter in 17th century Rome.

In 17th century Rome, where women are expected to be chaste and yet are viewed as prey by powerful men, the extraordinary painter Artemisia Gentileschi fends off constant sexual advances as she works to become one of the greatest painters of her generation.

Meticulously rendered in ballpoint pen, this gripping graphic biography serves as an art history lesson and a coming-of-age story.
Resonant in the #MeToo era, I Know What I Am highlights a fierce artist who stood up to a shameful social status quo.

Sophie Yanow: The Contradictions

The Eisner Award–winning story about a student figuring out radical politics in a messy world

Sophie is young and queer and into feminist theory.

She decides to study abroad, choosing Paris for no firm reason beyond liking French comics.
Feeling a bit lonely and out of place, she’s desperate for community and a sense of belonging.

She stumbles into what/who she’s looking for when she meets Zena. An anarchist student-activist committed to veganism and shoplifting, Zena offers Sophie a whole new political ideology that feels electric.
Enamored―of Zena, of the idea of living more righteously―Sophie finds herself swept up in a whirlwind friendship that blows her even further from her rural California roots as they embark on a disastrous hitchhiking trip to Amsterdam and Berlin, full of couch surfing, drug tripping, and radical book fairs.

Capturing that time in your life where you’re meeting new people and learning about the world―when everything feels vital and urgent―The Contradictions is Sophie Yanow’s fictionalized coming-of-age story.
Sophie’s attempts at ideological purity are challenged time and again, putting into question the plausibility of a life of dogma in a world filled with contradictions.
Keenly observed, frank, and very funny, The Contradictions speaks to a specific reality while also being incredibly relatable, reminding us that we are all imperfect people in an imperfect world.
