New Classics

Penguin Graphic Classics has just published the new edition of Akutagawa's Rashomon, with a cover by Yoshihiro Tatsumi, it joins covers of classics by other cartoonists including Voltaire's Candide by Chris Ware, The Portable Dorothy Parker by Seth, Upton Sinclair's The Jungle by Charles Burns and Hans Christian Andersson's Fairy Tales by Anders Nilsen. Chester Brown also provides cover art to D.H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterly's Lover, though I don't think it's for sale yet.

King Cat Classix

Did you know that we're publishing a 384-page "best of" collection from the first 50 issues of John Porcellino's King-Cat minicomic? Well, we are and it'll be hitting stores April 2007(-ish.) Until that time, we'll occasionally be running a strip from those fifty issues, some of which were cut and some that'll be in the book.

Early Sunday Morning News

The always comics-astute Los Angeles Times features the medium in the Book Review with three reviews today. Critic Richard Raynor smartly juxtaposes two of our seemingly opposite books Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip and Yoshihiro Tatsumi's Abandon the Old In Tokyo and remarks:

Jansson and Tatsumi: two masters, one from the far north, one from the east; the first joyously focused on life's defiant radiance, the other spelling out the bad luck and grinding cruelty with which that machine otherwise known as the world so often seems to operate. They are, really, flip sides of the same sensibility, point-of-view yin and yang. I like to think that they would have passed each other with a thrilled shock of recognition in the street in Helsinki or Osaka...The comic book is a genre whose trendy merits are sometimes acclaimed a little too strenuously these days. But not here. Jansson and Tatsumi are the real deal.

Also, David Ulin, Book Editor of the LA Times, reviews Ivan Brunetti's Anthology of Graphic Fiction... from Yale University Press here.

Moomin will be shipping to stores this week.

D+Q cartoonists at SPX

This year's SPX will have an excellent bunch of brand-new books debuting, including Lucky by Gabrielle Bell, Curses by Kevin Huizenga, Big Questions #9 and Don't Go Where I Can't Follow by Anders Nilsen, and all of them will be in attendance and signing. Here's the schedule:

Friday, October 13th:

3:00 - 5:00 Kevin Huizenga & Dan Zettwoch

5:00 - 7:00 Gabrielle Bell & Anders Nilsen

Saturday, October 14th:

12:00 - 1:00 Dan Zettwoch

1:00 - 3:00 Gabrielle Bell & Anders Nilsen

4:45 - 6:45 Kevin Huizenga

Also, Anders, Gabrielle and Kevin will be doing a panel discussion "How to Draw Thinking" from 3:30 to 4:30 on Saturday, in Brookside A... so check that out as well. Some say that because comics is a visual medium, it's better suited for action and spectacle than for rumination or the internal life of the mind. Comics by Gabrielle Bell, Kevin Huizenga, and Anders Nilsen consistently prove this notion wrong. With moderator Isaac Cates, they will discuss the pleasures and problems of making pictures that think.

AND, we will have a big stack of the new Moomin Book One by Tove Jansson! And great deals as always on new stuff. Yup, the D+Q table will be awesome, so come say hi to Rebecca and Morgan, and pick up some comics this weekend.
