Announcements of books through July: We have a Jim Benton collection!
The star of the show: a humor collection by bestselling author Jim Benton!
That’s right, the funny man behind It’s Happy Bunny has been contributing very popular cartoons/comics pages to Reddit and here’s a collection of those. It’s a dazzling display of different styles and very offbeat humor. He’s also the bestselling offbeat author of Franny K. Stein and Dear Dumb Diary, but THIS collection ain’t for kids (they’d get upset). Some great quotes in anticipation of this book:
“Consistently brilliant, always hilarious, Jim Benton is one of the best cartoonists on the web right now.”– Matthew Inman, TheOatmeal.com
“When you realize that the pathetic cry “I’M BENT” is hidden in Jim Benton’s very name on the cover you’ll know you’re in for a wild ride! And when you read this hilarious book YOU’LL be bent–bent over with laughter!”–Craig Yoe, Cartoonist, Author, Comic Historian
“If laughter is the best medicine, then your insurance company should reimburse you for the cost of this book. ”- -Jerry Zucker, Director, Writer, Producer
Also of note:
BILAL does the next LOUVRE book!
The bestselling author (every book of his sells over 100,000 in France) has a very unusual concept around the Louvre pieces. All the paintings in this book were exhibited at the Louvre earlier this year. And, for the anecdote, this marks a return to our roots: the second book we ever published, back in 1978 was The Call of the Stars by Enki Bilal…
Jesse (Flower & Fade, Joe &Azat) Lonergan brings out his best work yet:
And Eric Hobbs and Noel Tuazon (The Broadcast) have their next thriller:
MAGENTA, Noir Fatale marks a new turn for the imprint with a retro cool story of kink, old fashioned bondage and burlesque inspiration. Like burlesque, it’s a great fun tease, ‘tastefully trashy’. If you’ve been reading our Sizzle magazine, you know what we’re talking about.
