The Selves Sonja Ahlers $19.95 $20.95
Before blogs, there were zines. Before zines, there were scrapbooks. Sometimes overlooked in the quest to produce high culture, these most direct and intimate means of communication and recording memory are the tools favoured by Sonja Ahlers in the making of her art. A self-taught artist and writer, Ahlers wears her pop culture obsessions on her sleeve, professing her love for such visual icons as Princess Di, Holly Hobbie and Stevie Nicks. Focusing on found objects such as stickers, greeting cards, magazine photos collected in collage framework, complete with song lyrics hand-lettered in cursive script and heartbreaking, melancholic water colors, Ahlers explores and exposes the social construction of roles, feminine and otherwise. Beginning with incipient childhood self-awareness and traversing high school status jockeying to adult social climbing, the cultural imagery that supports and informs personal identity is given uneasy new meanings and importance in Ahlers' visual remixes.
With The Selves, the schizophrenic nature of an identity foraged from modern cultural sources is laid bare.

Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story Peter Bagge $21.95 $21.95
THE ALTERNATIVE COMICS MASTER OFFERS AN INDELIBLE AND IDIOSYNCRATIC TAKE ON THE PROTOFEMINIST

Cartoonist Peter Bagge is famous for his slacker character Buddy Bradley and more recently for his contributions to the libertarian magazine Reason. Margaret Sanger was a noted nineteenth century birth control activist, as well as an educator, a nurse, a mother, and a founder of Planned Parenthood. The Woman Rebel by Peter Bagge would seem to be an improbable pairing in content and in form, but Sanger’s life takes on a whole new vivacity as Bagge creates an adoring, fast-paced biography of this trailblazing woman whose legacy is still incredibly relevant and inspiring

September / $21.95 / 8.125 x 11 / 80 pages / full color / hardcover
Blabber Blabber Blabber Lynda Barry $24.95 $24.95
NOVEMBER 2011 From her first comics published in the Evergeen State College school paper to her influential weekly comic strip, ERNIE POOK'S COMEEK; from her bestselling creative how-to memoir comic books, WHAT IT IS and PICTURE THIS, to her novels, graphic memoirs, plays, and awards in between, Lynda Barry has been part of the North American alternative comics scene for thirty years.

EVERYTHING collects all of the seminal Ernie Pook’s Comeek and includes her earliest books such as BOYS & GIRLS and BIG IDEAS. It also features an introduction penned by Barry, complete with photographs.

Reflective of the early 1980s before the appearance of Barry’s well-known characters Marlys and Arna, the comics in Everything Volume 1 cover the more adult subjects of bad love, bad perms, being single, Prince, and miserable break-ups ---resulting in one of the most oft-quoted Barry sayings: “Love is an exploding cigar which we all willingly smoke.”

Though Barry’s early drawing style is most often described as “scratchy”–her affinity for large swaths of text and narration; fondness for exclamation marks; angular shapes cursive penmanship: and her uncanny ability to zero in the very essence of life all within a few panels is as present as ever in this collection.

Picture This Lynda Barry $29.95 $31.95
Lynda Barry singlehandedly created a literary genre all her own, the graphic-memoir-how-to, otherwise known as the bestselling, the acclaimed, but most importantly, the adored and the inspirational What It Is. The R.R. Donelley and Eisner Award-winning book posed, explored and answered the question "Do you think you can write?" Now with PICTURE THIS, Barry asks "Why do we stop drawing?" and "Why do we start?" It features the return of Barry's most beloved character, Marlys, and introduces a new one, the Nearsighted Monkey. Like What It Is, Picture This is an inspirational, take home extension of Barry's traveling, continually sold out, and sought after workshop, Writing The Unthinkable.

THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF TROUBLED ADOLESCENTS FROM BARRY’S ACCLAIMED COMIC
What It Is Lynda Barry $24.95 $24.95
What It Is demonstrates a tried-and-true creative method that is playful, powerful, and accessible to anyone with an inquisitive wish to write or remember. Each page is a full-color collage that is not only a gentle guide to this process, but an invigorating example of exactly what it is: "The ordinary is extraordinary."
Hark! A Vagrant Kate Beaton $19.95 $19.95
October 2011

HARK! A VAGRANT takes readers on a romp through history and literature -- with dignity for few and cookies for all -- with comic strips about famous authors, their characters, and political and historical figures, all drawn in Beaton’s pared-down, excitable style. This collection features favourite stories as well as new, previously unpublished content. Whether she’s writing about Nikola Tesla, Napoleon, or Nancy Drew, Beaton brings a refined sense of the absurd to every situation.

Hot Potatoe Marc Bell $39.95 $44.95
Fine Ahtwerks: 2001-2008
A gifted�cartoonist� the delight of his work is in the play of free-associating and funny imagination.�� Ken Johnson, New York Times


�Boundary-destroying, wacked-out (and beautifully drawn) material from Canadian artist Marc Bell that will leave you feeling as if you have bees in your head.��Minneapolis Star Tribine

�Marc Bell is a riddle wrapped in a conundrum further wrapped in salty bacon.��LA Weekly

Marc Bell�s HOT POTATOE seamlessly combines decade-plus comics activities with a lifelong devotion to, as Bell calls it, "Fine Ahtwerks." Part art monograph, part comics collection, HOT POTATOE is filled with mixed media cardboard constructions, watercoloured drawings, altered found texts and Bell�s most intense, dizzying comics from the contemporary avant-garde comics anthologies � Kramers Ergot and The Ganzfeld. Bell�s works have their roots in draftsmanship, typography and old-fashioned gags, but morph into assemblages that connect his images into real space. His comics are funny, seat-of-the pants narratives that give the characters an inner-life.

Represented by the Adam Baumgold Gallery in Manhattan, Bell is one of the leading lights in the new emphasis on drawing in the art world. He comes on like a stepchild of R. Crumb, Ray Johnson and Basquiat; armed with a dashing and looping rapidograph.

Pure Pajamas Marc Bell $22.95 $22.95
"Bell has a gift for incomprehensible gab, juggling a dozen language gags in complicated comic pages that, like Ulysses, could take you twenty-four hours or a lifetime to read."-Lee Henderson BORDER CROSSINGS

Pure Pajamas collects Marc Bell's best material from his syndicated weekly comic strip for the Montreal Mirror and the Halifax Coast, as well as a host of
anthologies such as Kramers Ergot, EXPO, Maow Maow and more, featuring his reoccurring characters Kevin, Ol' Simp, Chia-Man, Mr. Socks, and Shrimpy and Paul. Throughout PURE PAJAMAS, Bell creates symbiotic relationships of his fantasy ecosystems, drawn in a rubbery big-foot style. Reminiscent of the sixties comics of R. Crumb but with a kind of bemused detachment in place of Crumb's ire, Bell addresses the big issues of what it's like to live in today's world.

Talking Lines R.O. Blechman $29.95 $36.95
INTRODUCTION BY SETH
Talking Lines is the first ever comprehensive short story collection of R. O. Blechman, one of the most prolific and influential visual artists of the twentieth century. This oeuvre of his graphic stories is, at once, jocular, wry and profound. Blechman ruminates on such various topics as nuclear weapons, war,wiretapping, Christopher Columbus, Leo Tolstoy, William Shakespeare and Virginia Woolf. The stories have appeared in the seminal magazine Humbug (edited by Harvey Kurtzman), The Nation, Nozone (edited by his son, Nicholas Blechman), The New York Times and The New York Times Book Review.
Blechman is a modern master of all things visual whose timeless intellect and stripped-down artistry propels his nonstop relevancy. He is one of the few artists who has been able to balance the commercial and the artistic in a polished and unparalleled career that heralds him as one of the great cartoonists, the author of one of the first modern graphic novels, an Emmy and Cannes Film festival award-winning animator with a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, a Hall of Fame Art Director and even as a blogger for the Huffington Post.

THE CRITICALLY LAUDED MEMOIR ABOUT BEING A JOHN AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK FOR THE FIRST TIME!

Paying for It was easily the most talked-about and controversial graphic novel of 2011, a critical success so innovative and complex that it received two rave reviews in the New York Times, and sold out of its first print run in just six months. Chester Brown’s eloquent, spare artwork stands out in this paperback edition.

Paying for It combines the personal and sexual aspects of Brown’s autobiographical work (I Never Liked You, The Playboy) with the polemical drive of Louis Riel. Brown calmly lays out the facts of how he became not only a willing participant in, but a vocal proponent of one of the world’s most hot-button topics—prostitution. While this may appear overly sensational and just plain implausible to some, Brown’s story stands for itself. Paying for It offers an entirely contemporary exploration of sex work—from the timid john who rides his bike to his escorts, wonders how to tip so as not to offend, and reads Dan Savage for advice, to the modern-day transactions complete with online reviews, seemingly willing participants, and clean apartments devoid of clichéd street corners, drugs, or pimps.

Complete with a surprise ending, Paying for It continues to provide endless debate and conversation about sex work.

A MEMOIR OF SHOCKING HONESTY BY THE GRAPHIC NOVELIST BEHIND 2011'S ACCLAIMED COMIC, PAYING FOR IT

As with every Chester Brown book, when published in 1992 The Playboy was ahead of its time, illustrating the fearlessness and prescience of the iconoclastic cartoonist. The Playboy is a memoir about Brown's adolescence, sexuality, and shame that chronicles his teenage obsession with the magazine of the same name. Exploring the physical form of comics to its fullest storytelling capacity, a fifteen-year-old Chester is visited by a time-traveling adult Chester, and the latter narrates the former's compulsion to purchase each issue of Playboy as it appears on newsstands. Even more fascinating than his obsession with the magazine is Brown's need to keep this habit secret, and the great lengths to which he goes to avoid detection by, at first, his family, and then, later, by girlfriends.

The comics that became The Playboy first appeared in issues of Brown's controversial, ground-breaking comic Yummy Fur over twenty years ago, and yet the frankness of the work makes it seem avant-garde even now. As in every work by this master cartoonist, The Playboy uses no extra words, no extra panels, no extra lines, conveying environment and emotion through perfectly chosen moments. Fans of his acclaimed and controversial memoir Paying For It are sure to be drawn in by this early autobiographical portrait of blazing honesty. The expanded reissue includes all-new appendices and notes from the author.

Susceptible Geneviève Castrée $19.95 $19.95
"With mesmerizing honesty Castrée resurrects the obscenely disorienting turning points of a childhood, the ones that haunt a person for a lifetime. After reading the last page I closed the book and wept a little bit about its simple, perfect ending." –Miranda July, author of It Chooses You and No One Belongs Here More Than You



Geneviève Castrée has long been beloved for her mini-comics, comics, visual art, and music. SUSCEPTIBLE is the story of Goglu, a daydreamer growing up in Quebec in the '80s and '90s with a single mother. From a skillful artist comes a moving, beautiful story about families, loss, and growing up.

Make Me A Woman Vanessa Davis $24.95 $26.95
It's easy to understand why Vanessa Davis has taken the comics industry by storm and is poised to do the same with the world at large -- her comics are pure chutzpah, gorgeously illustrated in watercolors. No story is too painful to tell -- like how much she enjoyed fat camp. Nor too off-limits -- like her critique of R. Crumb. Nor too personal -- like her stories of growing up Jewish in Florida. Using her sweet but biting wit, Davis effortlessly carves out a wholly original and refreshing niche in two well-worn territories: autobio comics and the Jewish identity. Davis draws strips from her daily diary, centering on her youth, mother, relationships with men,and eventually her longtime boyfriend. Her intimacy, self-deprecation, and candor have deservedly earned her many accolades and awards. Her deft comedic touch, lush color, and immediacy will set Davis apart not only as one of the premier cartoonists, but as one of the leading humorists for her generation,too.
Ant Colony Michael DeForge $21.95 $21.95
THE DEBUT GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM A DAZZLING NEWCOMER WITH A SINGULAR, IDIOSYNCRATIC STYLE

In the few short years since he began his pamphlet-size comic book series Lose, Michael DeForge has announced himself as an important new voice in alternative comics. His brash, confident, undulating artwork sent a shock wave through the comics world for its unique, fully formed aesthetic. With his debut Drawn & Quarterly title, DeForge affirms his place as a defining new voice of alternative comics.

From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it’s the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns—loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.

DeForge’s striking visual sensibility—stark lines, dramatic color choices, and brilliant use of page and panel space—stands out in this volume.

SHARPLY OBSERVANT, LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY COMICS FROM THE BELIEVER CARTOONIST AND NEW YORK TIMES ILLUSTRATOR

My Dirty Dumb Eyes is the highly anticipated debut collection from award-winning cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt. In a few short years, Hanawalt has made a name for herself: her intricately detailed, absurdly funny comics have appeared in venues as wide and varied as The Hairpin, VanityFair.com, Lucky Peach, Saveur, The New York Times, and The Believer.

My Dirty Dumb Eyes intermingles drawings, paintings, single-panel gag jokes, funny lists, and anthropomorphized animals, all in the service of satirical, startlingly observant commentary on pop culture, contemporary society, and human idiosyncrasies. Her wild sense of humor contrasts strikingly with the carefully rendered lines and flawless draftsmanship that are Hanawalt trademarks. Whether she’s revealing the secret lives of celebrity chefs or explaining that what dogs really want is a tennis-ball bride, My Dirty Dumb Eyes will have readers rolling in the aisles, as Hanawalt’s insights into human (and animal) behavior startle and delight time and again.

THE UNTOLD COMING-OF-AGE STORY FROM A CONTEMPORARY COMICS MASTER

Marble Season is the all-new semiautobiographical novel by acclaimed cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez, author of the epic masterpiece Palomar, and cocreator of the groundbreaking Love and Rockets comic book series, along with his brothers Jaime and Mario. Marble Season is his first book with D&Q and one of the most anticipated books of 2013. It tells the untold stories from the American comics legends’ youth, but also portrays the reality of life in a large family in suburban 1960s California. Pop-culture references—TV shows, comic books, and music—saturate this evocative story of a young family navigating cultural and neighborhood norms set against the golden age of the American dream and the silver age of comics.
Middle child Huey stages Captain America plays and treasures his older brother’s comic book collection almost as much as his approval. Marble Season subtly and deftly details how the innocent, joyfully creative play children engage in (shooting marbles, staging backyard plays, and organizing treasure hunts) changes as they grow older and encounter name-calling naysayers, abusive bullies, and the value judgments of other kids. An all ages story, Marble Season masterfully explores the redemptive and timeless power of storytelling and role play in childhood, making it a coming-of-age story that is as resonant with the children of today as the children of the ’60s.

Eden Pablo Holmberg $16.95 $16.95
Argentinean artist Pablo Holmberg creates a bucolic, medieval folktale in Eden, where nature is the protagonist, and characters are the scenery. Follow a king as he converses with the moon, a star as it is born, and many more in four-panel strips that combine the playfulness of a Sunday comic with the simplicity of a haiku. Surreal yet friendly and approachable, each strip celebrates the thrill of being alive and encourages the reader to do the same. Eden is Holmberg�s chimerical cosmos where the author�s imaginative storytelling is purposely reliant on the reader�s interpretation.

A playful new collection of comic strips which were originally syndicated on his website, Holmberg reinvents the comic strip convention by emphasizing situations and natural landscapes rather than personalities and human interaction

Lars Jansson returns with the eighth volume of the classic Moomin hardcover comic series, and the whole gang is back in action. Sniff is causing trouble with another of his get-rich-quick schemes, Snorkmaiden falls in love with the inspector's bad boy nephew, and Moominmamma is offering up plum cake to whosoever should need it. As always, the experiences of the Moomin family are poignant, melancholy, and strangely wise, with just a dash of drolly funny and a pinch of slapstick. Without a doubt, Lars Jansson's Moomin Volume Eight is a treat for the whole family.

The Hattifatteners, the Nibling, Mrs. Fillyjonk (and all her children), and even Mymble pack up to leave the valley. When they realize the mysterious cloud is a comet headed straight for Moominhouse, Moomin, Little My, and Snorkmaiden decide to depart their home too. As the clock ticks down, and the comet nears Moominvalley, the plot thickens. Between a tidal wave and a comet-struck Moomin, the end does seem nigh, but the day may yet be saved.

Moominpappa has committed to writing a Great Novel About the Sea, and so the whole family moves to a desolate island where Moominpappa becomes the lighthouse keeper. It soon becomes apparent that there are a few problems with the island: it’s haunted, there’s nowhere to enjoy a good cup of tea, and the rat family living in the transistor radio has strictly forbidden the Moomins from using the radio until the children have all grown up and moved out. Determined, the Moomins set about planting a rose garden, painting the beacon cheery colors, and finding other ways to make the lonely place their own. In the end though, is a bleak lighthouse any place for a Moomin?

AN AWARD-WINNING BOOK FROM A LEGENDARY MANGA-KA AUTHOR

Red Snow continues D+Q's groundbreaking exploration of the fascinating world of Gekiga in this collection of short stories drawn with great delicacy and told with subtle nuance by legendary Japanese artist Susumu Katsumata. The setting is the pre-modern Japanese countryside of the author's youth, a slightly magical world where ancestral traditions hold sway over a people in the full vigor of life, struggling to survive the harsh seasons and the difficult life of manual laborers and farmers. While the world they inhabit has faded into memory and myth, the universal fundamental emotions of the human heart prevail at the center of these tender stories.

Susumu Katsumata began publishing comic strips in the legendary avant-garde magazine Garo (which also published his contemporaries Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Yoshiharu Tsuge) in 1965 while enrolled in the faculty of Science in Tokyo. He abandoned his studies in 1971 to become a professional comics artist, alternating the short humorous strips, upon which he built his reputation, with stories of a more personal nature in which he tenderly depicted the lives of peasants and farmers from his native region. In 2006, Susumu Katsumata won the 35th Japanese Cartoonists Association Award Grand prize for Red Snow.

Walt & Skeezix: 1929-1930 (Volume Five) Frank King $39.95 $39.95
Fall 2011 “Frank King's Gasoline Alley may be the best syndicated comic strip ever. Walt & Skeezix lovingly collects two year’s worth of the strip.”–Playboy

“There is a lovely, often wrenching gravity to the strip. King knows how humans as well as cars work, especially toddlers. His unsentimental understanding of their moods and games, matched by Walt's sudden and unquestioned devotion to his adopted son, make this about as affecting a portrait of fatherhood as I've seen, not least because Skeezix grows. This is the great innovation and dark curse of ‘Gasoline Alley’: the characters age.”–The New York Times Book Review

“This Chris Ware-designed collection…caught even hardcore comics devotees flatfooted with its boundless wonders”–The Onion
Walt and Skeezix: 1921-1922 (Volume One) Frank King $29.95 $29.95

Walt and Skeezix: 1927-1928 (Volume Four) Frank King $39.95 $43.95
In the long awaited-volume of Walt and Skeezix, the newly married Walt Wallet settles into domestic life with his wife, Phyllis, and their adopted son, Skeezix, but their family bliss is soon disrupted by a man who claims to be Skeezix's natural father. A long custody battle erupts, raising questions as to the importance of blood ties compared to a loving environment. Later, Walt and Phyllis have to deal with all the dilemmas of a young couple's life as their family starts to unexpectedly expand. This is the very stuff of life -- paying the bills, nursing a sick child, finding the right job while spending quality time with family -- expertly explored with cartoonist Frank King's unerring fidelity to reality. In unfolding the drama of the Wallet family's life, King displays his full mastery of long and complex narratives, which made his work a forerunner to the modern graphic novel. In his introduction to the series, Jeet Heer explores King's storytelling prowess and links the concerns of the strip with changes in American culture in the 1920s. Lavishly illustrated with King's family photos, the book is designed by Chris Ware, whose elegant and detail-rich books have revolutionized the graphic novel field.
Walt Before Skeezix Frank King $44.95 $44.95
THE PRELUDE TO THE WALT AND SKEEZIX SERIES OFFERS A PORTRAIT OF A COUNTRY IN TRANSITION

Walt Before Skeezix collects the first years of Frank King’s beloved comic strip Gasoline Alley—one of the most widely read and syndicated strips of its time, which is still syndicated today. These comics, produced between 1919 and 1920, focus primarily on Walt Wallet and his friends as they engage with the then-novel automobile sensation that was sweeping the nation.

This period of the newspaper strip is especially fascinating as a historical time capsule, charting a moment in America’s past when horses and buggies shared the road with cars, and when the country was making the transition from rural farmers to urban, industrialized society.

King was a pioneering American cartoonist who changed comics forever by setting his strip in contemporary America and having his characters age. These lavish volumes pay tribute to the evolution of his style and storytelling. Designed and edited by the world-renowned cartoonist Chris Ware (Building Stories), Walt Before Skeezix includes a wide-ranging introductory essay from the noted comics historian Jeet Heer, the coeditor of Arguing Comics: Literary Masters on a Popular Medium, and an essay by Tim Samuelson, the cultural historian for the city of Chicago, about how Chicago’s history is reflected in King’s newspaper strip.

The WORN Archive: A Fashion Journal About the Art, Ideas, and History of What We Wear Serah-Marie McMahon $29.95 $29.95
INTRODUCTION BY JANE PRATT

The WORN Archive is a manifesto on why fashion and clothing matter. For eight years, the Canadian magazine has investigated the intersections of fashion, pop culture, and art. With its prescient, intelligent articles WORN strives to address diverse issues like gender, identity, and culture with openness and honesty. WORN asserts that fashion is art, history, ideas, and most of all fun - that style is a personal experience that need not align with the fashion industry.
The five-hundred page book features the best content from the journal’s first fourteen issues, assembled by founder and editor-in-chief Serah-Marie McMahon. Articles penned by a host of unique contributors (academics, writers, curators, and artists), touch on topics as wide-ranging as the relationship between feminism and fashion; the definitions of hijab; how to tie a tie; the history of flight attendants; textile conservation. With eclectic photo shoots featuring “real” models, striking illustrations, and whimsical layouts, every page is a joyful, creative approach to clothing.
The WORN Archive is the ultimate cultural style map for those who don’t want to be told how to dress, but are seeking a transformative understanding of why we wear what we do.

IN STORES JUNE 2013

THE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF EXIT WOUNDS RETURNS WITH A STORY ABOUT FAMILIES, SECRETS, AND THE COMPLEX BONDS OF LOVE

The Property is a work that will inspire, fascinate, and delight readers and critics alike. Savvy and insightful, elegant and subtle, Modan’s second full-length graphic novel is a triumph of storytelling and fine lines. After the death of her son, Regina Segal takes her granddaughter Mica to Warsaw, hoping to reclaim a family property lost during the Second World War. As they get to know modern Warsaw, Regina is forced to recall difficult things about her past, and Mica begins to wonder if maybe their reasons for coming aren’t a little different than her grandmother led her to believe.

Rutu Modan offers up a world populated by prickly seniors, smart-alecky public servants, and stubborn women – a world whose realism is expressed alternately in the absurdity of people’s behavior, and in the complex consequences of their sacrifices. Modan’s ever-present wit is articulated perfectly in her clear-line style, while a subtle, almost muted color palette complements the true-to-life nuances of her characterization. Exit Wounds made a huge splash for this signature combination of wit, style, and realism, and The Property will cement Modan’s status as one of the foremost cartoonists working today.

On Loving Women Diane Obomsawin $16.95 $16.95
INTIMATE VIGNETTES OF WOMEN COMING OUT

On Loving Women is a new collection of stories about coming out, first love, and sexual identity by the animator Diane Obomsawin. With this work, Obomsawin brings her gaze to bear on subjects closer to home—her friends’ and lovers’ personal accounts of realizing they’re gay or first finding love with another woman. Each story is a master class in reaching the emotional truth of a situation with the simplest means possible. Her stripped-down pages use the bare minimum of linework to expressively reveal heartbreak, joy, irritation, and fear.

On Loving Women focuses primarily on adolescence—crushes on high school teachers, awkwardness on first dates—but also addresses much deeper-seated difficulties of being out: fears of rejection and of not being who others want one to be. Within these pages, Obomsawin has forged a poignant, powerful narrative that speaks to the difficulties of coming out and the joys of being loved.

Her first English-language work, Kaspar—a retelling of the life of Kaspar Hauser, the mysterious German youth who was raised in isolation and murdered just a few years after emerging from his imprisonment—was critically lauded for its simple but expressive storytelling, and for the way it portrayed traumatic material compassionately but without self-indulgence.

Mid-Life Joe Ollmann $19.95 $20.95
WHEN THE BODY SAGS AND THE HONESTY LAGS
Mid-Life is the story of a 40-year-old man, John, who becomes a father again with his much-younger second wife which results in a slow, painful attack by flowered baby bags and front facing baby carriers on his former virility and self identity. John always believed that age is a state of mind, however, his adult daughters, baby son, energetic wife, stressful job, house full of cats, and flabby body complete with bloated stomach and sagging bosom all lead John reluctantly to admit that he is having a midlife crisis. The crisis drives John to yell at his wife, pick fights with his daughters and miss deadlines at work that put his job on the line. John takes solace from the stress of everyday life with a seemingly harmless infatuation with the pretty children's performer Sherry Smalls who sings adoringly to him directly from his son's DVD.
Over Easy Mimi Pond $24.95 $24.95
Over Easy is a brilliant portrayal of a familiar coming-of-age story. After getting denied financial aid to cover her last year of art school, Margaret Pond finds salvation from the straight-laced world of college and the earnestness of both hippies and punks in the wisecracking, fast-talking, drug-taking Imperial Café, where she makes the transformation from Margaret to Madge. At first, she mimics these new and exotic grown-up friends, trying on the guise of adulthood with some awkward but funny stumbles and then slowly realizes that the adults she looks up to are a mess of contradictions, misplaced artistic ambitions, sexual confusion, dependencies, and addictions.

Over Easy is equal parts time capsule of late 1970s life in California – with its deadheads, punks, disco rollers, casual sex and drug use – and bildungsroman of a young woman from naïve, sexually inexperienced art-school dropout to self-aware, self-confident artist. Mimi Pond’s chatty, slyly observant anecdotes create a compelling portrait of a distinct moment in time. Over Easy is an immediate, limber, and precise memoir narrated with an eye for the humor in every situation.

CELEBRATING THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE KING CAT ZINE

"[KING CAT COMICS] swell with passion and heart." - USA TODAY'S POP CANDY

"Since 1989, John prcellino's simple, and simpy beautiful, comics (along with letters, lists, and a few photographs) have been self published to growing acclaim." - MINNEAPOLIS CITY PAGES

"Porcellino is a master at miniature poignance." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

MAP OF MY HEART celebrates the twentieth anniversary of John Porcellino's seminal and influential comics zine, KING CAT COMICS, which he started self publishing in 1989 and which has been his predominant means of expression. In this collection, while Porcellino is living in isolation and experiencing the pain of divorce he crafts a melancholic, tender graphic ballad of heartbreak and reflection. Known for his sad, quiet honesty rendered in his signature deceptively minimalist style, Porcellino has a command of graphic storytelling as sophisticated as the medium's more visually intricate masters. Few other artists are able to so expertly contemplate the sadness, beauty, and wonder of life in so few lines.

A FANTASTICAL, WORDLESS VOYAGE THROUGH SUBTERRANEAN MAZES
Daybreak Brian Ralph $16.95 $16.95
You wake up in the rubble and see a ragged, desperate one-armed man greeting you. He takes you underground to a safe space, feeds you, offers you a place to sleep. And then announces that he’ll take the first watch. It’s not long before the peril of the jagged landscape has located you and your newfound protector and is scratching at the door. What transpires is a moment-to-moment struggle for survival—The Road meets Dawn of the Dead. Daybreak is seen through the eyes of a silent observer as he follows his protector and runs from the shadows of the imminent zombie threat. Brian Ralph slowly builds the tension of the zombies on the periphery, letting the threat—rather than the actual carnage—be the driving force. The postapocalyptic backdrop features tangles of rocks, lumber, I beams, and overturned cars that are characters in and of themselves.

GET LOST IN THE VIBRANTLY COLORFUL, HYSTERICALLY FUNNY WORLD OF ANNA AND HER ANIMAL PALS

Embark on a fresh set of adventures with the hilariously snarky and mischievous heroes of Anna & Froga. In each short episode, Anouk Ricard’s deceptively simple illustrations harmonize perfectly with the characters’ petty, silly, and downright slapstick pranks. Bright colors, astutely observed details, and minimalist linework combine to present a world that is shockingly lively and joyous. Anna, Froga, Ron, Bubu, and Christopher have adventures that rival the best in classic comics.

Ricard hits her stride in this second volume of the Anna & Froga books, which have found a loving home amongst classic comics connoisseurs, alternative comics fans, and children in North America and Europe alike.

Benson's Cuckoos Anouk Ricard $19.95 $19.95
WORKPLACE STRESSES MAY PROVE KILLER IN THIS OFF-THE-RAILS OFFICE SATIRE

Richard thinks he’s in luck when he snags a job at the cuckoo-clock factory, but things start to go wrong right off the bat. First of all there’s his boss, who doesn’t seem to have the strongest grip on reality and has an odd penchant for silly hats. Then there are his coworkers, who are alternately evasive and idiotic when asked about anything pertaining to actually getting work done. Finally there’s George, the employee Richard’s replacing, who supposedly quit but whose family has just appeared on national TV pleading for his safe return. It’s all adding up to a very strange workplace, and when the company goes on a retreat, everything spools quickly out of control.

From the author of Anna and Froga comes a wry, offbeat whodunnit that centers on office life. Anouk Ricard’s subtle, sardonic humor undermines the characters’ desperate attempts to be taken seriously, as they bungle kidnappings, misunderstand social cues, and let petty disagreements become feuds. Ricard’s dim-witted characters aspire to deviousness but miss their mark, remaining firmly in the domain of slapstick.

With cleverly observed dialogue, charming artwork, and brilliantly over-the-top plotting, Benson’s Cuckoos will delight the adult fans of Ricard’s comics for kids.

Palookaville Volume 20 Seth $19.95 $20.95
Palookaville #20 is the first volume of the seminal comic book series to be published in book form. The expansion into hardcover from pamphlet is a parallel that illustrates Seth's growth into an award-winning cartoonist, book designer, hobbyist, editor, essayist, and installation artist. The annual visual compendium will showcase Seth's varied creative passions. #20 is part comic book with the ongoing serialization of Clyde Fans, part sketchbook, and part documentation of Seth's fictional town of Dominion City.

Seth's first autobiographical comics since Palookaville #2 and #3 will be featured in #20. Drawn in his loose sketchbook style similar to his book Wimbledon Green, Seth details his trip to a book festival and his awkward struggle to overcome isolation and communicate with the people around him. Seth continues the serialization of his acclaimed Clyde Fans storyline that the New York Times Book review aptly noted, "Seth truly believes in his wares -- the little meanings of regular lives." This is, perhaps, nowhere more apparent than in the cartoonist's ongoing three-dimensional rendering of his fictional Dominion City, most recently featured in his book George Sprott. Complete with sketches, photographs and an essay, the cartoonist explains why the need to conceptualize the fictional city in sculptures was a natural extension from comics storytelling, and how if he had his way, it would have stayed in his basement forever.

Sunday Night Movies features Leanne Shapton's romantic interpretation of moments from the movies that populate her memory. She captures fragments and stills that appeared on the screen for mere seconds and, in a gorgeous deep black watercolor, re-envisions them, forging haunting images that stay with you, much like a hazy but stubborn recollection of dreams past.

The Native Trees of Canada Leanne Shapton $19.95 $19.95
Renowned artist and designer Leanne Shapton has taken a century-old book and reinterpreted it in a series of bold, painted images. Shapton takes the otherwise complex objects of trees and strips them down into stark, almost abstract shapes and colors. She distills each subject into its simplest form, using vivid colors in lush gouache paint. Her passion is evident in each painting: the waterbirch is represented as two pulsating red bulbs contrasted against a grey backdrop; the eastern white pine is represented by a close up of its leaves against a radiant summer sky.

HILARIOUS PARODIES OF CLASSIC LITERATURE REIMAGINED WITH CLASSIC

COMICS


"A provocative collision." --Entertainment Weekly

"A brilliant parable about literature, history and what telling stories tells us about ourselves." --Toronto Star

"Disconcerting and fascinating... a canny fusion of overlapping fictional legacies" --Globe and Mail

HILARIOUS PARODIES OF CLASSIC LITERATURE REIMAGINED WITH CLASSIC COMICS

Masterpiece Comics adapts a variety of classic literary works with the most iconic visual idioms of twentieth-century comics. Dense with exclamation marks and lurid colors, R. Sikoryak's parodies remind us of the sensational excesses of the canon, or, if you prefer, of the economical expressiveness of classic comics from Batman to Garfield. In "Blond Eve," Dagwood and Blondie are ejected from the Garden of Eden into their archetypal suburban home; Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray is reimagined as a foppish Little Nemo; and Camus's Stranger becomes a brooding, chain-smoking Golden Age Superman. Other source material includes Dante, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, bubblegum wrappers, superhero comics, kid cartoons, and more.

Sikoryak's classics have appeared in landmark anthologies such as RAW and Drawn & Quarterly, all of which are collected in Masterpiece Comics, along with brilliant new graphic literary satires. His drawings have appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as well as in The New Yorker, The Onion, Mad, and Nickelodeon Magazine.

Nancy, along with her sidekick Sluggo, will charm readers young and old with her hilarious, scheming hijinks.
Thirteen Going on Eighteen John Stanley $39.95 $42.95
In the early to mid-1960s, John Stanley turned his attentions to drawing and writing his own series, specifically Melvin Monster, Around the Block with Dunc and Loo, Kookie, and the most interesting of these titles, Thirteen Going on Eighteen, rather than working with already established licensed characters he is most well known for such as Little Lulu. D+Q has embarked on an archival series of Stanley's comics including Melvin Monster, Around the Block with Dunc and Loo, Kookie and Thirteen Going on Eighteen.

Thirteen Going on Eighteen focuses on the friendship and rivalry of two teenage girls, Val and Judy. Each comic is a darkly hilarious look at the social maneuverings and betrayals of the teen set. Stanley's stripped down approach perfectly captures the fever pitch of teenage years. He creates a teenage sit-com and turns it into an anguished character study.

Hardcover/336 pages/7.75" x 11"
Tubby Volume One John Stanley $29.95 $34.95
Meet Tubby Tomkins, a mischievous gourmand, rabble rouser and schemer who, along with neighborhood buddies The Fellers, is continually at odds with the belligerent and thwarting West Side Boys headed by Wilbur Van Snobbe, the rich trickster who always gets the girl Tubby likes, Gloria Darling. From clubhouse standoffs to pogo stick time machines, the day is rarely long enough for the hilarious escapades and witty shenanigans that divert and preoccupy the epicurean Tubby and his pals. Consistently humorous and engaging, Tubby is a spirited voyage through the prototypal works of a preeminent storyteller.

TUBBY is the latest title in Drawn & Quarterly's extensive reprinting of the work of 1960s cartoonist John Stanley and elegantly designed by Canadian cartoonist Seth. TUBBY collects issues 9-12 of the classic strip chronicling the tales of its namesake protagonist and is an offshoot from the wildly popular Little Lulu, Stanley's career-defining work.

A proud artisan, he takes his donkey-drawn cart to the market only to be turned away when the distinctive shop he once sold to now only stocks cheaply manufactured merchandise. As the realities of the market place sink in, Mendleman unravels. Sturm draws a quiet, reflective and beautiful portrait of eastern European in the early 1900s, bringing to life the hustle and bustle of an old-world market place on the brink of the Industrial Revolution. Market Day is a timeless tale of how economic and social forces can affect a single life.
A Single Match Oji Suzuki $24.95 $26.95
In this collection of hauntingly elliptical short stories, Oji Suzuki explores memory, relationships and loss with a loose narrative style, filling each tale with a sense of unfulfilled longing. He plumbs the dissolute depths of human psychology, literally bathing his characters in expansive shadows that paradoxically reveal as much as they obscure. A young man catches a cold after being soaked in the rain and is tended to by his grandmother. He drifts, dreaming of a train trip with an older brother he doesn�t have. A traveling salesman comes across a boy lying in the middle of the road and stops to have a cigarette and tell a story that drifts through memories of faces and places, before settling back on the traveling salesman and the boy pretending to not look at the stars. A young woman walks along the river with her bicycle and a friend who is nothing more than a disembodied head--discussing past times together, memories they have of each other.
Although he touches on many of the same themes as his contemporaries in the field of post-war alternative manga, Yoshihiro Tsuge (L'Homme Sans Talent) and Seiichi Hayashi (Red Coloured Elegy), Suzuki's ever-shifting narrative approach and dashes of surrealist humor distinguish his work from his peers.

White Cube Brecht Vandenbroucke $22.95 $22.95
WITH FEW WORDS AND GORGEOUS STYLE, A CARTOONIST TAKES AIM AT THE HYPOCRISIES OF THE ART WORLD

White Cube is the Belgian cartoonist and illustrator Brecht Vandenbroucke’s debut book, a collection of mostly wordless strips that follow a pair of pink-faced twins as they attempt to understand contemporary art and the gallery world. Their reactions to the art they encounter are frequently comedic, as they paint over Pablo Picasso’s famous mural Guernica, and re-create a pixelated version of Edvard Munch’s The Scream after receiving one too many e-mails.

Lushly painted, these irreverent strips poke fun at the staid, often smug art world, offering an absurdist view on the institutions of that world—questioning what constitutes art and what doesn’t, as well as how we decide what goes on the walls of the gallery and what doesn’t.

Vandenbroucke’s distinctive work blends the highbrow with the low, drawing equally from Gordon Matta-Clark’s site-specific artwork and the Three Stooges’ slapstick timing. With a knowing wink at the reader, Vandenbroucke continuously uncovers something to laugh about in the stuffiness and pretentiousness of the art world.

Jordan Wellington Lint, 51, is Chief Executive Officer of Lint Financial Products, a company he began serving in 1985 as assistant and advisor before working his way up its corporate ladder to record-setting innovation in the fields of finance and high-yield investment. In his seven years as the head of Lint, Jordan has grown the company from a business lender and real estate speculator to a leading provider of network financial infrastructure services, all the while positioning Lint as a model of corporate integrity and high-yield, low-risk product. Lint's vision has made him one of the most influential and widely sought-after leaders in the complex Omaha securities industry, and his fresh approach to an understanding of local problems, leadership and determination have enabled Lint to grow, outdistance and outpace its competitors.

Lint graduated from UNL in 1981 with a BA in Business and briefly studied music and recording in Los Angeles before returning to his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, where he has continued his life journey ever since. In his ongoing role as Chief Executive Officer and his dual roles as public servant and father, Lint continues to put his creative leadership and vision to work in a variety of challenging settings. He is married and is the father of two boys.

The ACME Novelty Library Number 20 comprises a contributing chapter to cartoonist Chris Ware's gradual accretion of the ongoing graphic novel experiment "Rusty Brown."
Denys Wortman's New York Denys Wortman $29.95 $31.95
After cartoonist, educator and editor James Sturm discovered the vintage book, Mopey Dick and the Duke, he set off to find more about the author, the deceased and unknown cartoonist Denys Wortman. Sturm immediately took note of the masterful drawings � casual, confident, and brimming with personality and wondered how this cartoonist escaped his radar. After some online sleuthing, Sturm connected with Wortman�s son, Denys Wortman VIII, who relayed that an archive of over 5000 illustrations literally was sitting in his shed in dire need of rescuing. For over 35 years, the illustrations had been fighting such elements as hungry rodents, rusty paperclips and even a blizzard. Wortman VIIII also had drawers full of his father�s correspondences including letters and holiday cards from William Steig and Walt Disney. Original artwork by artists and personal friends including Peggy Bacon, Milt Gross, Isabel Bishop, and Reginald Marsh were also saved. Considering that Wortman�s luminary peers held him in the highest regard coupled with his artistic prowess, makes his absence from both fine art and comics history puzzling. So, Sturm and Brandon Elston set out to create a beautiful tribute to the forgotten master.

Denys Wortman's New York is not only a tribute to Wortman, but it is a tribute to New York, the city that sparked Wortman�s voracious creative output. From coal cellars to roof tops, from opera houses to boarding houses, Wortman recorded the sailors, dish washers, con artists, entertainers, pushcart peddlers, construction workers, musicians, hobos, society matrons, young mothers, secretaries, and students who collectively make New York the city it is.
