Here’s what we’ve got being solicited for in comics stores this month, to come in October:
new from ComicsLit:
A Treasury of XXth Century Murder:
MADISON SQUARE TRAGEDY
The Murder of Stanford White
Stanford White is one of New York’s most famous architects having designed many mansions and the first Madison Square Garden. His influence on New York’s look at the turn of the century was pervasive. As he became popular and in demand, he also became quite self-indulgent. He had a taste for budding young showgirls on Broadway, even setting up a private apartment to entertain them in, including a room with… a red velvet swing. When he meets Evelyn Nesbit, an exquisite young nymph, cover girl, showgirl, inspiration for Charles Dana Gibson’s “The Eternal Question” and for the later movie “The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing,” he knows he’s on to something special. However, Evelyn eventually marries a young Pittsburgh decadent heir with a dark side who develops a deep hatred for White and what he may or may not have done to her, setting up the most scandalous murder of the time.
“TOP TEN COMICS FOR FALL. No season would be complete without the latest in Rick Geary’s ongoing series of 20th-century murders: with elegant, unsettling penwork, Madison Square Tragedy: The Murder of Stanford White tells the notorious story of architect Stanford White, who was murdered by a jealous husband in a theater atop the original Madison Square Garden.”

and in Eurotica we resolicit Liberatore’s awesome pin up book LE DONNE. If you missed it, now’s your chance to order it through your comic bookstore:
The Italian artist of the controversial RanXerox comic series which shook the world of comics in the eighties presents women in-your-face proud of their feminity. Women in all their physical glory and empowered. This explores limits without shame or fear and is occasionally pornographic, bizarre, or even disturbing. Includes chapters entitled ‘Desire’, ‘Pulse’ with stark black & white illustrations, ‘Embraces’ with a fearless abandonment to sheer lust, ‘Chiaroscuro’, ‘Intimacies’ with never before seen angles on the nude figure, ‘Flesh’ with soft beautiful aquarelles. This book challenges and does not leave indifferent.
“This is the most thrilling part of the works featured, the personalization, the intimate look into the sheer joy in Tanino Liberatore’s art”
Mark Squirek, NY Journal of Books
“An intriguing – and provocative – collection of Liberatore’s work.” -Comics Waiting Room
