Charlier & Giraud: Blueberry – Kenraali Kultatukka/Kadonnut kaivos/Kultaluoteja ampuva aave

Charlierin ja Giraudin luoma luutnantti Blueberry on yksi kaikkien aikojen maineikkaimpia lännensarjakuvia.

Omapäisestä mutta oikeudenmukaisesta sisällissodan upseerista kertova sarja tunnetaan moniulotteisista tarinoistaan sekä upeasta taiteestaan.

Kertomuksessa Kenraali Kultatukka Blueberry joutuu todistamaan verenhimoisen kenraali McAllisterin ja ahtaalle ajettujen intiaanien hirvittävää taistelua.
Kadonnut kaivos ja Kultaluoteja ampuva aave muodostavat kaksiosaisen tarinakokonaisuuden, jossa Blueberry ystävineen jahtaa petollista kullankaivajaa sekä kovapintaisia palkkionmetsästäjiä halki armottoman aavikon.

Sarjakuvien lisäksi kirjassa on kattava artikkeli Blueberrystä sekä runsaasti Giraudin laatimaa oheiskuvitusta, jota ei aiemmin ole Suomessa julkaistu.

Hän ryhtyy äänekkään ja suoraviivaisen rock-bändin manageriksi.
Karuhko todellisuus ja Buddyn suojattien käsitykset omasta tähteydestään eivät välttämättä kohtaa toisiaan, mutta onko sillä väliä, kun pitkätukkaiset koltiaiset pääsevät ensimmäisen kerran maistamaan rock’n’rollin ydinmehua?

Tomi Riionheimo: Talvella voi hiihtää

“Tomi Riionheimo, Joensuun suuri poika, geograafikko ja kulmikas naivisti sarjakuvittaa lähinnä kolmentyyppisiä verbalisteja.

Mikko Kekki havainnoi tarkasti tilanteita ja sananvaihdantaa, Jarse Lehikoisen rimmaavat opetukset muistuttavat moraalista pimeyden hetkellä tai oitis sen jälkeen.
Lauri Hannu on kolmikon aforistikko, lukija vangitaan runouden ja proosan eksaktille välialueelle pehmeästi tahi ansaitsemansa kipupiston tuntien.”
– Petri Kemppinen, asiantuntija

Greg & Roba & Franquin: Pikon ja Fantasion seikkailuja 37 – Tembo Tabu

Piko ja Fantasio matkustavat syvälle Afrikan uumeniin, jossa heitä odottaa pelottava ja huikea seikkailu.

Viidakon pimeydestä ilmaantuu toinen toistaan uskomattomampia yllätyksiä, ja äkkiä sankariparia uhkaavat sotilasmuurahaiset, punaiset elefantit sekä verenhimoiset lihansyöjäkasvit!
Onneksi mukana on ihmeotus Marsupilami, jonka ilmiömäisillä kyvyillä onkin nyt käyttöä.

Tembo Tabu on yksi legendaarisen Franquinin hurjimpia Piko ja Fantasio -kertomuksia, ja nyt tämä mestarin laatima seikkailu julkaistaan viimein suomeksi albumimuodossa. Mukana on myös lyhyt Marsupilami-tarina Häkki sekä yksisivuisia Marsupilami-hupailuja!

Oido on lemmikkiboa, joka päättää karata.

Hän tempaa mukaan kaverinsa Iso-Anopin (huonekasvi) ja jättää taakseen terraarioelämän.
Karkureissu saa nopeasti uudenlaisia ideologisia tarkoitusperiä ja eksistentiaalisen kriisin sävyjä.

Edessä on tiukka puristus, missä koetuksella ovat niin Oidon oma fyysinen että henkinen kunto, sekä hänen ystäviensä ymmärrys boan dramaattista luonnetta kohtaan.

.

Tome & Janry: Pikon ja Fantasion seikkailuja 36 – Virus

Pikon ja Fantasion vanha vastustaja John “Mureena” Helena palaa kuvioihin, mutta tällä kertaa hän tarvitsee sankariemme apua… ja kipeästi!

Mureenaan on iskenyt outo, keinotekoinen virus, joka on saanut alkunsa salamyhkäiseltä tutkimusasemalta Etelämantereella. Niinpä kaksikkomme lähtee hyytävälle tutkimusmatkalle, josta ei vauhtia tai vaaroja puutu!

Piko ja Fantasio ovat yksi eurooppalaisen sarjakuvan kulmakiviä. Heidän seikkailunsa ovat hauskuuttaneet ja viihdyttäneet kaikenikäisiä lukijoita jo yli 50 vuotta.
Parivaljakko Tome ja Janry on luonut monia klassisen sarjan parhaita tarinoita, ja vihdoinkin heidän ensimmäinen Piko & Fantasio -kertomuksensa Virus on saatavilla suomeksi.

Cauvin & Nic: Pikon ja Fantasion seikkailuja 33 – Hiljaisuuden salaisuus

Fantasio ei millään malta pysyä aloillaan.

Nyt hän on väsännyt laitteen, joka vaimentaa kaikki äänet, oli kyseessä sitten naapurin television möykkä tai liikenteen möly.

Vaikka ajatus melusaasteen torjunnasta onkin kerrassaan mainio, tuottaa keksintö hyvin nopeasti Pikolle ja Fantasiolle roppakaupalla hankaluuksia… varsinkin, kun eräs ahne konnakaksikko saa hiljaisuuslaitteen haltuunsa!

ONE & Yusuke Murata: One-Punch Man 4

Netflix-animaationakin tuttu sarja muistuttaa alkuasetelmaltaan My Hero Academiaa.

Siinäkin sankarius on ammatti muiden joukossa, ja erilaisilla voimilla varustetut sankarit pitävät superrikollisia aisoissa. Mutta One-Punch Man ottaa ison harppauksen komedian suuntaan!
Päähenkilön murheena on niukan toimeentulon ja kaljuuden lisäksi se, että hän on päässyt liian vahvaksi. Kun suurinkin hirviö kaatuu yhdellä iskulla, käy elämä tylsäksi…

Kukaan ei tosin usko arkisen näköistä heppua maailman vahvimmaksi sankariksi!

Zahn is one of Krypton’s elites: wealthy, privileged, a future leader.
Sera is one of Krypton’s soldiers: strong, dedicated, fearless.
Their rule-bound society has ordained that their paths should never cross.

But groundquakes are shaking the planet’s surface. Rebellious uprisings are shaking the populace.

Krypton’s top scientists–Jor-El and Lara–conduct a secret experiment that is meant to reform their planet from the cellular level up.

For the last…er…unusual year, monsters have been arriving on Casey’s doorstep needing a place to stay, something to eat, and lots and lots of attention.
It’s getting impossible to keep these haunted houseguests a secret, much less get a good night’s sleep. Casey has to find a solution, and fast!

But someone is onto Casey’s supernatural stash. Zandra, the new girl at school, not only knows about his creature collection, but she’s found a monster, too.
And it needs his help! Now Casey must juggle location-scouting for his house of horrors, keeping his monsters protected from the townspeople and an evil droid of doom, and navigating middle school. Good thing he can trust Zandra…or can he?

Craig Thompson: Ginseng Roots 1-6

Set of six comic books. Includes Hello Chunky Root mini-comic and a sticker.

From ages 10 to 20, Craig Thompson (author of Blankets, Goodbye Chunky Rice, Habibi, Carnet De Voyage, Space Dumplins) and his little brother Phil, toiled in Wisconsin farms weeding and harvesting ginseng.

The medicinal herb fetched huge profits in China and funded Craig’s youthful obsession with comic books. Comics, in turn, allowed him to escape his rural, working-class trappings.

For the first time in his career, Thompson is serializing his story.
Part memoir, part travelogue, part essay– all comic book–Ginseng Roots is a sweeping narrative that unearths surprising connections between class divide, agriculture, holistic healing, the 300-year-long trade relationship between China and North America, childhood labor, and the bond between two brothers.

The Lords of Misery… a mysterious organization made up (unwillingly) by history’s most notorious dregs.
Through the ages they have battled an enigmatic and unstoppable force.
A being whose evil makes the Lord’s crimes look downright petty in comparison.

Always it returns after a long hibernation. And always the Lords have died trying to thwart it.
But if generations of Lords haven’t been able to stop it, what chance does the Goon and this current incarnation have?

Oliver Bocquet & Jean-Marc Rochette: Altitude

An exhilarating graphic novel about the thrill and the terror of mountaineering.

At 16, bivouacked on a mountainside beneath a sky filled with stars, Jean-Marc Rochette has already begun measuring himself against some of Europe’s highest peaks.
The Aiguille Dibona, the Coup de Sabre, La Meije: The summits of the Massif des écrins in the French Alps, to which he escapes as a teenager, spark both exhilaration and fear.

At times, they are a playground for adventure. At others, they are a battlefield. The young climber is acutely aware that death lurks in the frozen corridors of this Alpine range.

In Altitude, Rochette tells the story of his formative years, as a climber and as an artist.
Part coming-of-age story, part love letter to the Alps, this autobiographical graphic novel captures the thrill and the terror invoked by high mountains, and considers one man’s obsession with reaching the top of them.

Weird Tales of the Future 1

Bug-eyed monsters, two-timing homicidal husbands and wives, rampaging corpses and even one or two cases of severe halitosis or crossed-eyes.

This title has the lot . . .including a better-than-healthy dose of the one and only Basil Wolverton, his intricately detailed grotesques of bizarre or misshapen people, earned him the title of “Producer of Preposterous Pictures of Peculiar People who Prowl this Perplexing Planet”.

Just the covers alone have had the gang at PS muttering in their sleep just crossing off the days that this baby would come along.
And here it is. This is the way comicbooks were!

Heck, it’s the way they should still be, Chauncy!
You get even more ‘wacky’ Wolverton with the inclusion of ‘Robot Woman’ from WEIRD MYSTERIES #2 December 1952. Featuring Fozzmo, a horribly disfigured but brilliant inventor who builds himself a robot woman to love!

Drake Waller & Matt Baker: It Rhymes with Lust

As editor of The Express, a newspaper with an anti-Masson stance secretly owned by Rust, Hal is drawn back to her even as he falls for her stepdaughter Audrey.

Warren Ellis: Bad Signal

Warren Ellis’ e-mail column shows that he is a modern master of the short form essay as his biting wit makes even the most esoteric of topics must-reads.

Ellis describes the work as “Bad Signal is me on the move, emptying my head of thoughts and shoving them into a handheld computer with a wireless modem plugged into it, so that I can instantly bug four thousand people with useless email from public toilets all over the world.”

Collected for the first time, this book features the Bad Signal columns profusely illustrated with dozens of stunning new illustrations by celebrated artist Jacen Burrows.

Warren Ellis & Ken Meyer: Atmospherics

For the first time, comics legend Warren Ellis and painter Ken Meyer unleash the terrifying alien tale of Atmospherics in full color!

She’s in a hospital…or it may be a police station.
She’s been traumatized…or possibly she’s being held for questioning.

She’s either the only living witness of a cattle-mutilation style attack on humans, or a multiple killer whose psychotic reaction to heroin led to massacre.

Who is this mystery woman?
And will her interrogators survive the discovery of her true identity?

Warren Ellis & Mike Wolfer: Strange Kiss

The original STRANGE KISS storyline collected, featuring the introduction of William Gravel!

Strange Kiss is best described by Ellis himself: “A horrific murder/suicide in the middle of a busy city street at midday; an old man rotting and bloating in a hospital bed, something sick gestating inside him; in a darkened place close by, people screaming, impregnated, doomed.
Something beautiful and awful is trying to reproduce, and its strange kiss is only to be feared…”

Warren Ellis & Mike Wolfer: Stranger Kisses

Finally, back in print!

Warren Ellis brings his mad visions to life with the same team who brought you Strange Kiss.

Stranger Kisses is about people for whom two genders are not enough, no matter how you play mix and match with sexuality.

It’s also about videotape, bad secrets, and what it’s like to have an entire city wanting to kill you.
The videotape is of seriously physically modified whores. Possibly altered at the genetic level. Because those extra orifices look grown. And those weird protuberances don’t look artificial….

A very 21st Century comic, mad and modern and speedy and full of nasty ideas.
In LA, the future of rich man’s whoring and trophy women is being designed.
Two sexes are not enough. People like their kisses stranger than that.

Matt Furie: Mindviscosity

This is a collection of paintings, a one-man bestiary of monsters, weirdos, beasties, and anthropomorphs, all painted in Furie’s meticulous brand of representational surrealism.

Furie’s cheerful, anthropomorphic comics character, Pepe the Frog, became a meme that was appropriated by hate groups (as seen in the documentary Feels Good Man, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.)

Furie’s recent paintings reflect this experience.
This is a showcase for an unsettling menagerie; creatures seem to be hiding their true intentions.
Furie is plumbing darker depths in these works, despite the paintings’ inviting colors and friendly cartoon iconography.

Full-color illustrations throughout.
