Drawn & Quarterly (NEW series) Volume 3
The D&Q Anthology
D&Q kicks off its tenth anniversary with this massive full-color "coffee table" book (a 9" x 12" format) featuring almost 200 pages of all new material. Leading off with extravagant covers and endpapers by Chris Ware, this book features a complete 55 page full color "Monsieur Jean" story by "New Yorker" artists Dupuy & Berberian, a focus on brilliant Italian cartoonist Franco Matticchio, and an exclusive 14 page "preview" of Seth's breathtaking sketchbook drawings. RAW cartoonist R. Sikoryak manages to simultaneously deconstruct both Bob Kane's Batman and Russian literature in "Dostoyevsky Comics", French cartoonist Blutch provides a brief history of boxing in "Fist To Fist", and "new" 90-year-old cartoonist Harry Mayerovitch's takes a whimsical look at the true nature of shadows! Other features include stories by Pentti Otsamo, Jason Little, and new Quebec "clear-line" cartoonist Michel Rabagliati. One of the highlights of this edition is a new, extensive archival feature focusing on one of the greatest comic strips of the 20th century, Frank King's "Gasoline Alley". Thirty full-color Sunday strips from the 1920's and 30's are reproduced here, the most comprehensive reprint sampling of King's work ever, with a rare "forward" written by Frank King himself! In honor of this section, Chris Ware's covers will be an homage to Gasoline Alley, complete with a new strip drawn in Frank King's style! Edited by Chris Oliveros. - Softcover; 176 pages. 9" x 12". First edition.
