Over Easy

Mimi Pond

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.

The WORN Archive: A Fashion Journal About the Art, Ideas, and History of What We Wear

Serah-Marie McMahon

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.

Benson's Cuckoos

Anouk Ricard

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.

On Loving Women

Diane Obomsawin

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.

Beautiful Darkness

Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoet

A DARK FAIRY TALE ABOUT SURVIVING THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE

Aurora’s having a tea party with Hector, the prince she’s been dreaming about, when a sudden deluge forces them to take shelter elsewhere. They emerge from the skull of a dead girl into the woods at night, and find themselves amongst a crowd of tiny people, all of whom are milling about. Aurora quickly takes charge of the situation, and at first things seem to be going well for most of her friends. Despite a few injuries and deaths and a lot of hunger, they forage successfully, and befriend a mouse that lives in the neighborhood. But as time goes by, more and more of the little people begin to lose hope, turning against one another in brutal ways.

Beautiful Darkness is a harrowing look at the human psyche and the darkness that hides behind the routine politeness and meaningless kindness of civilized society. The sweet faces and bright leaves of Kerascoet’s joyful watercolors only serve to highlight the evil which dwells beneath, as characters allow their pettiness, greed, and jealousy to take over. Beautiful Darkness presents a bleak allegory on the human condition; Kerascoet and Vehlman’s work is a searing condemnation of our vast capacity for evil writ tiny.

Ant Colony

Michael DeForge

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.

Everywhere Antennas

Julie Delporte

Julie Delporte’s Everywhere Antennas is a deeply affecting, sparely constructed novel, equal parts Walden and The Bell Jar. Told in the first person, Everywhere Antennas offers diary-like entries from an anonymous narrator who is undergoing a nervous breakdown and struggling to hold together a failing relationship. In soft, flowing colored pencil, Delporte shows her narrator coming to term with a rare and misunderstood sensitivity to the radiation emitted by the televisions, cell phones, and computers that permeate urban life.

On each page a few words are paired with an image or two, conveying a moment or a thought simply but effectively. Over the course of the book, the anonymous narrator moves from place to place, looking for solutions to her melancholy in the countryside via isolation and in the city with friends and sometimes medication. Throughout, her emotional and intellectual landscape receives as much attention as her physical surroundings.

Everywhere Antennas is the portrait of a woman caught in the margins, struggling to balance the demands of technology and modern life with the need to find meaningful relationships and work. Roughly hewn figures, sketched in pencil crayon on brightly contrasting backgrounds, populate the pages of this flowing, emotive work. With Everywhere Antennas, Julie Delporte proves herself to be a master craftswoman of heartbreakingly personal, beautifully literary graphic fiction.

White Cube

Brecht Vandenbroucke

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.

Petty Theft

Pascal Girard

Pascal’s in a bad place. He’s out of work, he and his longtime girlfriend have just broken up, and when he goes out for a run to ease his frazzled nerves, he falls and injures his back so badly, he’s strictly forbidden from running. What’s an endorphin-loving cartoonist to do? In a bid to distract himself, Pascal throws himself into his other pleasure: reading. And while at the bookstore one day, he spies a young woman picking up his own book. But then she darts out of the shop without paying. Bemused, he decides to figure out why she did it.

Petty Theft is a comedy of errors, a laugh-out-loud account of a man on a mission, and a heavily fictionalized memoir about the addictiveness of book-ownership. Pascal Girard intermingles an all-too-true-to-life snapshot of contemporary relationships with slapstick trials and dryly funny tribulations in this delightfully readable book.

From the award-winning author of Reunion, Petty Theft is a deftly told, finely drawn contemporary romance that will keep book-lovers on the edge of their seat from the first page until the book’s denouement.

Walt Before Skeezix

Frank King

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.

Showa 1939-1944: A History of Japan

Shigeru Mizuki

Showa 1938-1944: A History of Japan continues award-winning author Shigeru Mizuki’s autobiographical and historical account of Showa Era Japan. This volume covers the final moments of the lead-up to World War Two and the first few years of the Pacific War; it is a chilling reminder of the harshness of life in Japan during this highly militarized epoch.

In Showa 1938-1944, Mizuki writes affectingly about the impact on the Japanese populace of world-changing moments including the devastating Second Sino-Japanese War, the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the first half of the Pacific War. On a personal level, these years mark a dramatic transformation in Mizuki’s life, too – his idyllic childhood in the countryside comes to a definitive end when he’s drafted into the army and shipped off to the tiny island of Rabaul in Papua New Guinea. His life becomes a constant struggle for survival, not only against the constant Allied attacks but because he must face the harsh discipline of the Japanese army officers. During his time in Rabaul, Mizuki comes to understand the misery and beauty of the island itself—a place that will permanently mark him and haunt him for the rest of his life.

Nancy Volume Four

John Stanley

IN STORES MARCH 2013

THE IRRESISTIBLE ADVENTURES OF NANCY AND SLUGGO

In the fourth and final volume of the John Stanley Library’s Nancy comics, the gang is back. Readers are treated to still more uproarious antics from Nancy, Sluggo, Spike, Aunt Fritzi, and Mr. & Mrs. McOnions. In these stories, Nancy has a dream that seems a little too real, Sluggo’s moth cupboard turns out to be pretty profitable, and Rollo Haveall takes rhubarb and blackberry pie revenge on an ungrateful Nancy. John Stanley drew these comics as a journeyman on the stories. He tended towards absurdist punchlines, but also mimicked the logic of children very well. John Stanley’s work is incredibly fresh and funny half a century later. Pudgy, irritable, and always trying to find ways to have fun, Sluggo and Nancy’s hijinks are laugh-a-minute.

Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story

Peter Bagge

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.

Drawn in full color with an extensive bibliography and introduction by journalist Tom Spurgeon of the Comics Reporter, The Woman Rebel showcases Bagge's signature cartoony, rubbery style and potent sense of humor, as well as his respect for the precedent-setting political and social maverick. In a style jam-packed with fact and fun, Bagge charts Sanger’s life, from her impoverished childhood in rural New York to her brief formal education, from her work in the Lower East Side tenements to her involvement with the burgeoning birth control movement. Bagge has created the most accessible Margaret Sanger biography ever; The Woman Rebel is perfect for introducing this vanguard of the women’s rights movement to a whole new generation of readers.

Sunday Night Movies

Leanne Shapton

IN STORES SEPTEMBER 2013

ETHEREAL ILLUSTRATIONS EXPAND ON A NEW YORK TIMES SERIES BY AN ACCLAIMED AUTHOR, ARTIST, AND ART-LOVER


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.

What could be a simple still life or portrait of an actor in a classic scene becomes so much more when seen through Shapton’s eyes. This journey through Shapton’s film life becomes a wistful, if light-handed, celebration of the quiet moments in life, which too often slip by unnoticed. Each painting is like a love letter to the art form of cinema.

Nothing is as magical as when artist Leanne Shapton casts a dreamy eye towards classic iconography; she transforms the language of images with each grey wash and carefully chosen line. Her bestselling Petit Livre art book The Native Trees Of Canada took a century-old government catalogue and reworked it, using bold colors and stark shapes to represent the trees in all their majestic glory. The book was a sleeper hit, and went through multiple printings. With Sunday Night Movies she brings her distinctive style to bear on moments in her own life and the effect is restrained and fanciful, familiar and all new. It’s a uniquely beautiful book from an artist known for her dreamily beautiful work.

Co-Mix

Art Spiegelman

IN STORES SEPTEMBER 2013

In an art career that now spans six decades, Art Spiegelman has been a groundbreaking and influential figure with a global impact. His Pulitzer Prize-winning holocaust memoir Maus established the graphic novel as a legitimate form and inspired countless cartoonists while his shorter works have enormously expanded the expressive range of comics.

Co-Mix: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps is a comprehensive career overview of the output of this legendary cartoonist, showing for the first time the full range of a half-century of relentless experimentation. Starting from Spiegelman's earliest self-published comics and lavishly reproducing graphics from a host of publications both obscure and famous, Co-Mix provides a guided tour of an artist who has continually reinvented not just comics but also made a mark in book and magazine design, bubble gum cards, lithography, modern dance, and most recently stained glass. By showing all facets of Spiegelman's career, the book demonstrates how he has persistently cross-pollinated the worlds of comics, commercial design, and fine arts. Essays by acclaimed film critic J. Hoberman and MoMA curator and Dean of the Yale University School of Art Robert Storr bookend Co-Mix, offering eloquent meditations on an artist whose work has been genre-defining.

A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting

Guy Delisle

IN STORES JUNE 2013

MEDITATIONS ON FATHERHOOD FROM THE AUTHOR OF JERUSALEM: CHRONICLES FROM THE HOLY CITY

With A User’s Guide to Neglectful Parenting, the trademark dry humor that pervades Guy Delisle’s landmark and praised graphic travelogues takes center stage. Quick, light vignettes play on the worries and cares any young parent might have, and offer wry solutions to the petty frustrations of being a dad who works from home.

Readers familiar with Delisle’s stranger-in-a-strange-land technique for storytelling (employed in Jerusalem, Pyongyang, Burma, and Shenzhen) will recognize the titular parent in this book; Delisle’s travelogues were simultaneously portraits of complex places and times, and portraits of a stay-at-home dad’s ever-changing relationship with his children while his wife is out working for Doctors Without Borders. The relationship between young child and all-too-irony-aware parent is beautifully done here, and Delisle’s loose flowing style has been set free, creating a wonderful sense of motion throughout. A User’s Guide to Neglectful Parenting is an intimate, offbeat look at the joys of parenting.

“In this intimate account of fatherhood, the Quebecois author casts a funny and self-deprecating eye on his own approach to parenting through a series of sharply-observed vignettes.”—Direct Matin

“Unapologetic and totally disingenuous, the User’s Guide to Neglectful Parenting is a guilty pleasure that ought to be savored.”—Elle France

Showa: A history of Japan 1926-1939

Shigeru Mizuki

IN STORES IN OCTOBER

Showa: a History of Japan, 1926-1939 is the first volume of Shigeru Mizuki’s meticulously researched historical portrait of twentieth century Japan. This volume deals with the period leading up to World War II, a time of high unemployment and other economic hardships caused by the Great Depression. Mizuki’s photo-realist style effortlessly brings to life Japan of the 1920s and 1930s, depicting bustling city streets and abandoned graveyards with equal ease.

When the Showa Era began, Mizuki himself was just a few years old, so his earliest memories coincide with the earliest events of the Era. With his trusty narrator Rat Man, Mizuki brings history into the realm of the personal, making it palatable, and indeed compelling, for young audiences as well as more mature readers. As he describes the militarization that leads up to World War II, Mizuki’s stance toward war is thoughtful and often downright critical – his portrayal of the Nanjing Massacre clearly paints the incident (a disputed topic within Japan) as an atrocity. Mizuki’s Showa is a beautifully told history that tracks how technological developments and the country’s shifting economic stability had a role in shaping Japan’s foreign policy in the early twentieth century.

The Property

Rutu Modan

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.

Rage of Poseidon

Anders Nilsen

A WISE AND FUNNY COLLECTION OF MODERN-DAY PARABLES ABOUT THE TIES BETWEEN HUMANS AND THEIR GODS

Imagine you are Poseidon at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The oceans are dying and sailors have long since stopped paying tribute. They just don't don't need you anymore. What do you do? Perhaps, seeking answers, you go exploring. Maybe you end up in Wisconsin and discover the pleasures of the iced latte. And then, perhaps, everything goes wrong.

Anders Nilsen, author of Big Questions and Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow, explores questions like these in his newest work, a darkly funny meditation on religion and faith with a modern twist. Rage of Poseidon brings all of the philosophical depth of Nilsen’s earlier work to bear on contemporary society, asking how a twenty-first century child might respond to being sacrificed on a mountaintop, and probing the role gods like Venus and Bacchus might have in the world of today. Nilsen works in a unique style for these short stories, distilling individual moments in black silhouette on a spare white background. Above all, though, he immerses us seamlessly in a world where gods and humans are more alike than not, forcing us to recognize the humor in our (and their) desperation.

Rage of Poseidon is devastating, insightful, and beautiful hewn; it’s a wry triumph in an all-new style from a masterful artist.

Paying For It

Chester Brown

IN STORES MAY 2013

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.

Reggie-12

Brian Ralph

IN STORES OCTOBER


HANG OUT WITH A YOUNG ROBOT HERO IN HIS FORTRESS OF NOT-SO-SOLITARY SOLITUDE

What if Osamu Tezuka’s beloved hero Astro Boy were a young robot with endless enthusiasm who lived with a bumbling sad sack robot friend, a self-centered wise-cracking cat, and a well-meaning but forgetful inventor? Why, then he’d be Reggie-12! Reggie-12 is classic Japanese adventure manga cartooning reworked in Brian Ralph’s trademark style and told with the episodic wit and structure of the contemporary American sitcom. Laughs explode from the page (and the reader’s belly) as mishap follows caper follows disaster.

Brian Ralph (Daybreak, Cave~In) first presented this hilarious pop culture send-up of the infallible boy hero in the back pages of seminal Asian culture magazine Giant Robot, and it instantly become one of the magazine's most popular and enduring features. Come along for a wild ride with Reggie-12, Casper, and Professor Tinkerton as they eat pizza, play video games, and get dissed by bad guys.

The Playboy

Chester Brown

IN STORES MAY 2013

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.

Palookaville 21

Seth

IN STORES AUGUST 2013

A LAVISH VOLUME WITH ALL-NEW AUTOBIO COMICS, FROM THE AUTHOR OF IT'S A GOOD LIFE, IF YOU DON'T WEAKEN

Continuing the new semiannual hardcover format for Palookaville in volume 21, Seth presents two very different autobiographical pieces, and the continuation of Part Four of the ongoing Clyde Fans serial. In the latest dispatch from the beautifully crafted Clyde Fans, Abraham muses further on the ruins of his life. Then, in the first sustained sequence of the two Matchcard brothers, Abraham and Simon finally sit down together and begin to talk.

“Nothing Lasts” is the first half of a sketchbook memoir about Seth’s childhood and adolescence in small-town Ontario. It is a wryly self-conscious, often moving visit to the attic of Seth’s memories: from his first attempts at cartooning to the last time he kissed his mother good night, “Nothing Lasts” is a masterpiece of the graphic short story.

Finally, the third section of Palookaville #21 consists of entries from the comic-strip diary Seth has been keeping for almost a decade. He employs a mixture of hand-drawn panels and rubber stamps of his own work to tell anecdotes about moments from his life. Nothing from this diary has ever been made public before. This lushly designed collection of stories comprises an anthology of the different types of cartooning work Seth has done over his two-decade-long career.

Rookie Yearbook Two

Tavi Gevinson

IN STORES OCTOBER 2013

THE SECOND BOOK IN THE ROOKIE YEARBOOK SERIES

Rookie is an independent online magazine made by and for teenage girls. It was created by Tavi Gevinson in 2011, when she was just fourteen years old; today, about a third of the magazine's staff are teenage writers, photographers, and illustrators.

Rookie launched in September 2011; six days after its debut the site hit one million page views. One year after that, the online publication reimagined itself in deluxe print form with Rookie Yearbook One, an anthology of the best features from the site's first nine months, plus a sticker sheet, a flexidisc, and original artwork. Now, Rookie's sophomore year is collected in Rookie Yearbook Two: a second anthology that's just as visually stunning as the first, and filled with even more content. Exclusive Rookie Yearbook Two celebrity content will include contributions by Judy Blume, Grimes, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling among others, making it a truly special product.

Like the site itself, the Rookie yearbooks combine personal essays by young girls; advice about style, sex, friends, and school; fashion; gorgeous photo albums; humor and pathos - in other words, everything a teenage girl thinks and cares about. Rookie Yearbook Two collects interviews and contributions from notable adults including Morrissey, Emma Watson, Molly Ringwald, Carrie Brownstein, the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning cartoonist Chris Ware, and Museum of Jurassic Technology founder David Wilson.

On its second birthday, Rookie averages more than 450,000 unique visitors, and 1.2 million visits per month (and counting) with 205,000 Tumblr followers. The Rookie yearbooks reach that audience and beyond, spanning a diverse group who may have found Rookie Yearbook One on the shelves of their local library or been given the book as a gift from an adult who laments not having Rookie around when they were a teenager.

Louis Riel: Tenth Anniversary Edition

Chester Brown

Louis Riel: a Comic-Strip Biography tells the story of the charismatic, and perhaps mad, nineteenth century Metis leader, whose struggle to win rights for his people led to violent rebellion on the nation’s western frontier. Chester Brown’s carefully researched, exquisitely illustrated, and much-lauded biography goes deep into the myths and the facts about this man whose place in Canadian history is troubled: Riel has been alternately vilified as a murderer and mourned as a martyr. His involvement in the Red River Rebellion and the subsequent North-West Rebellion are brilliantly and dispassionately laid out in a finely etched style, as are the Canadian government’s responses to the Metis people’s demands. Brown’s even-handed approach makes these disastrous events all the more moving.

When the collected book appeared in 2003, Chester Brown won widespread critical and industry acclaim for Louis Riel, including two Harvey Awards, and inclusion on countless best-of lists. Beyond that, it singlehandedly revitalized the biography genre of comics, paving the way for a new generation of artists. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Louis Riel’s publication, Drawn & Quarterly is reissuing the book as a deluxe paperback, with a new introduction contextualizing the work’s importance and the original pamphlet covers collected and reproduced in full color.

Marble Season

Gilbert Hernandez

IN STORES MAY 2013

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.

A NEW COLLECTION FROM THE GUARDIAN AND NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE CARTOONIST

Again and again, Tom Gauld reaffirms his position as a first rank cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history.

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?

Kitaro

Shigeru Mizuki

IN STORES APRIL 2013

MEET ONE OF JAPAN'S MOST POPULAR CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME--THE ONE-EYED MONSTER BOY

Meet Kitaro. He's just like any other boy, except for a few small differences: he only has one eye, his hair is as an antenna that senses paranormal activity, his geta sandals are jet-powered, and he can blend in to his surroundings like a chameleon. Oh, and he's a three hundred and fifty year old yokai (spirit monster). With all the offbeat humor of an Addams Family story, Kitaro is a light-hearted romp where the bad guys always get what's coming to them. Kitaro is bestselling manga-ka Shigeru Mizuki's most famous creation. The Kitaro series was inspired by a kamishibai or paper theatre entitled Kitaro of the Graveyard. Mizuki's series was created in 1959, and first appeared in Shonen comics magazine for boys, but quickly became a cultural landmark for young and old alike. Kitaro inspired half a dozen TV shows, plus numerous video games and films, and its cultural importance cannot be overstated. Presented to North American audiences for the first time in this lavish format, Mizuki's photo-realist landscapes and cartoony characters blend the eerie with the comic.

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.

Letting It Go

Miriam Katin

Miriam Katin has the light hand of a master storyteller in this flowing, expressive, full-color masterpiece. The world of Holocaust survivor and mother is turned upside down by the news that her adult son is moving to Berlin, a city Katin has villainized for the past forty years. As she struggles to accept her son's decision, she visits the city twice, first to see her son and then to attend a Museum gala featuring her own artwork. What she witnesses firsthand is a city coming to terms with its traumatic past, much as Katin herself is. Letting It Go is a deft and careful balance: wry, self-deprecating anecdotes counterpoint a serious account of the myriad ways trauma inflects daily existence, both for survivors and for their families.

Katin's first book, We Are On Our Own, was a memoir of her childhood, detailing how she and her mother hid in the Hungarian countryside, disguising themselves as a peasant woman and her illegitimate child in order to escape the Nazis. The stunning story, along with Katin's gorgeous pencil work, immediately garnered acclaim in the comics world and beyond. With Letting It Go, Katin's storytelling and artistic skills allow her to explore a voice and perspective like no other found in the medium.

Animals With Sharpies

Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber

IN STORES JUNE 2013

PAINTINGS BY TWO OF CANADA �S MOST INFLUENTIAL CONTEMPORARY FINE ARTISTS

Animals With Sharpies is a collection of paintings withhand-lettered texts. In each painting, Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber have depicted an animal holding a sharpie, ostensibly writing a message. These messages are varied in nature: they are political and religious tracts, confessions, recipes, arithmetic problems and more. Above all, these paintings are funny, but they are also startlingly poignant and jarring for the humanness of the suffering and longing depicted in these animals� simple words. Dumontier and Farber, two of the founding members of the highly influential art collective the Royal Art Lodge, have been collaborating on art projects for more than fifteen years. Their collaborative style is unique from that found in their individual works and is respected internationally: they�ve exhibited together in France, Switzerland, Canada, the USA, Belgium, Spain, England and Germany. Dumontier and Farber have a strong sense of the absurd, but are also deeply insightful about the world in which their art is created. Animals With Sharpies will be a mixture of new, previously unseen pieces, and older pieces.
