Jacques Tardi: I, Rene Tardi, Prisoner of War in Stalag IIB – After the War

In the final volume of this intergenerational memoir, a powerful tribute to a lost generation of WWII POWs, the author’s father comes home.

In the third and final volume of Stalag IIB, René Tardi has come home.
But after five agonizing years as a prisoner of war, he is a changed man. Like millions of other French soldiers, René struggles to adjust to civilian life and imagine his postwar future.
Upon re-enlisting in the army he despises, René receives new orders: return to Germany and help rebuild the country that imprisoned him.

There, the story shifts from father to son, as young Jacques must bear the strange burden of growing up in the land of his father’s enemy. A solitary child, he takes refuge in drawing, kickstarting a lifelong passion for cartooning.

This volume brings to a close a fitting tribute to the artist’s father and the lost generation of French POWs — the triumphant culmination of Jacques Tardi as a master of the form.

Posy Simmonds: Fred

A quirky tale, told in comic-strip format, of the secret double life of the laziest cat in the world

Fred is an adored family cat (now deceased) who slept all the time–on the ironing board, on the washing machine, on top of the fridge, on cars, and particularly on beds–although he took a little time off to sit on laps purring and to eat.

Only after his death do Sophie and Nick discover that, by night, he was the Elvis of the cat-world, Famous Fred, the most famous cat in the world, with hordes of devoted fans–who give him a suitably raucous funeral.

Aurélien Ducoudray & Jocelyn Joret: Kidz

These KIDZ are foul mouthed, raising hell and doing battle with the living dead!

It’s been three months since a terrible epidemic turned the population into zombies hungry for fresh meat.
Only after devouring almost all of humanity, the undead themselves begin to wither and fall from famine…

Somewhere in a suburban town, Ben, 10 years old and still traumatized by the death of his parents, forms with his friends the last bastion of humanity. And between hunting zombie survivors, expeditions to amass food, toys and comics–all filmed by the aptly named Spielberg–life flows rather peacefully in their world.

Until something worse than a nuclear disaster or the 4 flashing red rings of death on an Xbox 360 hits their small community: two girls! Accustomed to chilling by the pool, eating chocolate bars and playing video games… how will the boys react to Polly’s bizarre new customs and little sister Sue?

Aurélien Ducoudray and Jocelyn Joret bring you the zombie apocalypse from a kid’s point-of-view in this pop culture mash up brimming with an 80’s vibe.

KIDZ is Stranger Things meets Welcome to Zombieland on a Gorillaz soundtrack!

The collected edition of KidZ will include a bonus section with cover art and sketchbook section along other behind-the-scenes info and material!

Steven Appleby: Dragman

From “Britain’s most loved comics artist” comes a superhero epic like no other―an ordinary man gains superpowers by donning women’s clothing, saving London and maybe even himself.

August Crimp can fly, but only when he wears women’s clothes.
Soaring above a gorgeous, lush vista of London, he is Dragman, catching falling persons, lost souls, and the odd stranded cat.

After he’s rejected by the superhero establishment, where masked men chase endorsement deals rather than criminals, August quietly packs up his dress and cosmetics and retreats to normalcy ― a wife and son who know nothing of his exploits or inclinations.

When a technological innovation allows people to sell their souls, they do so in droves, turning empty, cruel, and hopeless, driven to throw themselves off planes.
August is terrified of being outed, but feels compelled to bring back Dragman when Cherry, his young neighbor, begs him to save her parents.

Can Dragman take down the forces behind this dreadful new black market? Can August embrace Dragman and step out of the shadows?

The debut graphic novel from British cartoon phenomenon Steven Appleby, Dragman is at once a work of artistic brilliance, sly wit, and poignant humanity, a meditation on identity, morality, and desire, delivered with levity and grace.

Kimiko Tobimatsu & Keet Geniza: Kimiko Does Cancer

At the age of twenty-five, Kimiko Tobimatsu was a young, queer, mixed-race woman with no history of health problems whose world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

In an instant, she became immersed in a new and complicated life of endless appointments, evaluations, and treatments, and difficult conversations with her partner and parents. Kimiko knew that this wasn’t what being twenty-five was supposed to be like … but then, she didn’t have a choice.

With tender illustrations by Keet Geniza, Kimiko Does Cancer is a graphic memoir that upends the traditional “cancer narrative” from a young woman’s perspective, confronting issues such as dating while in menopause, navigating work and treatment, and talking to well-meaning friends, health care professionals, and other cancer survivors with viewpoints different from her own.
Not one for pink ribbons or runs for the cure, Kimiko seeks connection within the cancer community while also critiquing the mainstream cancer experience.

Honest and poignant, Kimiko Does Cancer is about finding one’s own way out of a health crisis.

Jake Halpern & Michael Sloan: Welcome to the New World

Now in a full-length book, the New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic story of a refugee family who fled the civil war in Syria to make a new life in America

After escaping a Syrian prison, Ibrahim Aldabaan and his family fled the country to seek protection in America. Among the few refugees to receive visas, they finally landed in JFK airport on November 8, 2016, Election Day. The family had reached a safe harbor, but woke up to the world of Donald Trump and a Muslim ban that would sever them from the grandmother, brothers, sisters, and cousins stranded in exile in Jordan.

Resettled in Connecticut with little English, few friends, and even less money, the family of seven strive to create something like home.
As a blur of language classes, job-training programs, and the fearsome first days of high school (with hijab) give way to normalcy, the Aldabaans are lulled into a sense of security.

A white van cruising slowly past the house prompts some unease, which erupts into full terror when the family receives a death threat and is forced to flee and start all over yet again. The America in which the Aldabaans must make their way is by turns kind and ignorant, generous and cruel, uplifting and heartbreaking.

Delivered with warmth and intimacy, Jake Halpern and Michael Sloan’s Welcome to the New World is a wholly original view of the immigrant experience, revealing not only the trials and successes of one family but showing the spirit of a town and a country, for good and bad.

Initially the relationship helps her out of a rut and she finds her world starting to open up. But as she learns more about her new friend, she must decide if the solitary life she’s built is the one she’s actually most suited to after all.

Dealing with issues of mental health, the joys and drawbacks of choosing a casual job over a career path and the burden that comes with letting other peoples’ problems into your life, Breakwater is a stunning second graphic novel from the creator of Follow Me In.

Davide Reviati: Spit Three Times

In a forsaken corner of the Italian countryside, Guido and his friends Moreno and Katango spin out their days in languor and boredom intermixed with desire and, occasionally, violence.

Guido’s coming-of-age is changed by the evolving relationship that the rural town has with this group of outsiders, these “gypsies.”

The author is unsparing in his depiction of the townspeople’s cruelty. And yet, there are also many instances of solidarity between Guido’s community and the Stančič.
Reviati’s first book in English, Spit Three Times is an extraordinary story of young men, disillusioned and trying to find their way, caught in the breach between post-war exuberance and the stagnation of the early twenty-first century.

Mirka Andolfo: Mercy – The Fair Lady, the Frost and the Fiend

MERCY, a goth-inspired, Victorian monster series explores topics of “otherness,” damnation and redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror graphic novel perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, The Alienist, Parasol Protectorate, and Dark Shadows.

This new graphic novel by acclaimed creator MIRKA ANDOLFO (UNNATURAL) is a gothic horror tale where mysteries and unspeakable sins are blended together in a unique and sensual way.

Washington State, late nineteenth century. During the frenzied historical era commonly known as the Klondike Gold Rush, a mysterious woman arrives in Woodsburgh, a small mining town close to the Canadian border.

It’s been a few years since the Swanson mine was closed following the terrible accident that claimed the lives of so many men and women, including the owner’s and the city it’s still struggling in search for a new place on the map of the country.

Elegant and extraordinarily wealthy, Lady Hellaine arrives in the city accompanied by her faithful butler Goodwill and settles in one of the most luxurious mansions in town.
A lifestyle that contrasts sharply with that of the majority of the population, forced to choose between humble crafts and illegal activities.

No one is aware of the reasons that led such a classy lady to move from Seattle to the small village, but her arrival certainly did not go unnoticed.
Especially in the eyes of Lady Swanson, widow of the late mine owner and leading figure of the local bourgeoisie. Lady Hellaine’s plans will bring her on a collision course with the powerful Lady Swanson, who, for reasons not entirely rational, distrusts the newcomer.

Meanwhile, the streets and surroundings of Woodsburgh are flooded in blood: a heinous creature is killing incautious citizens, wreaking havoc on their bodies.
Enough to induce local authorities to impose a strict curfew after sunset.

And with the falling of the first snow, the “Woodsburgh Devil”‘s fury seems to have even increased. What’s the connection, if any, between this disturbing presence and the ivory-skinned stranger?

Who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda?
