All this time still after Sandy, we have yet to see our phones back in service but at least through a temporary wireless contraption you can reach us if you must at 212 643 5408 (not our regular number 5407 which remains mired in repairs).
Take a look at our Coming Up section and you’ll see we’ve recently put up all books we’ve got planned through June.
Two things of note on that:
Persia Blues, a fascinating exploration into the experience of a young woman expatriate from Iran and her search for identity here, with her past and her country’s past… This, by the way is going through fundraising on Kickstarter right now, more about that later.
Comixology today has posted their next title in our Eurotica imprint, Guido Crepax’ famous adaptation of Pauline Reage’s THE STORY OF O, a classic of submission and bondage.
Check it out!
Our print book has been out of stock, we will go back to press at some point. So right now, this is how you can get it!
Heck, let’s give this a try: we’re joining the stampede out there giving you 20% off all orders of at least $20 worth of books and magazines.
Just make sure to enter code 112 into the coupon field to see your savings!
Also, if using MC, Visa or Amex, make sure to enter the security code,as instructed, into the comment box, as no orders can be fulfilled without this.
And this is good for 24 hours from… now!
On your mark…
That is the theme of what we consider to be one of our best books of the season, take a look at what is being solicited for by us at your favorite comics shop now:
A Comic Artist And a Wine Artisan Exchange Jobs
Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist. He doesn’t know much about the world of wine-making.
Richard Leroy is a wine-maker. He‘s rarely even read comics.
But these two are full of good will and curiosity. Why do we choose to spend one’s life writing and creating comics or producing wine? How and for whom do we do them? To answer these questions, for more than a year, Etienne went to work in Richard’s vineyards and cellar. Richard, in return, leapt into the world of comics. They opened a lot of bottles and read many comics. They traveled around, meeting authors and wine-makers sharing their passion for their jobs. The first time a book explores the nature of a man’s vocation with a true life representation of it from two very different perspectives. They get to realize they both have that precious and necessary power to bring people together.
With guest appearances by Trondheim (Dungeon, Little Nothings), Emmanuel Guibert (The Photographer) and Marc-Antoine Matthieu (Museum Vaults).

AND NEW FROM PAPERCUTZ!
Now we’re told we won’t have worlking phone lines and possibly internet until December 4!
So much for being back up as we thought a couple days ago.
Why? Because our lines are out of a central office that was one of the worst hit by flooding and so is undergoing extensive repairs.
What that means, folks, is, don’t call us! All you get is a busy signal or some weird message about us not in existence. They can’t even forward our calls or put on a message!
To reach us, you need to e-mail us. We’re managing through wifi and jerry-rigging to get online and get most of our work done there.
So, sorry, no phone calls! Just e-mail.
Orders: we will be processing credit cards orders starting today through Square. Orders accumulated from when the storm hit through yesterday have been processed and our warehouse is sending them out..
Wish us luck.
We’re finally returning to some normalcy today but don’t give us a call! You’ll only get a busy signal.
For orders: we can finally catch up with orders that have come in over the last 10 days and get them out. Your credit card will only be charged today.
But good ‘ole Verizon again can’t get its act together, they’re not even able to have our calls forwarded or put on a message… Just e-mail us! email@example.com for questions about orders (again,be patient), firstname.lastname@example.org for everything else.
So the latest, as we were all hoping to get back up and running, is we still can’t, fully. Power was restored on Saturday but the internet service may have been affected by floods downtown. Ditto for our phones.
Sooo, we hope to route calls but no internet still means not being able to retrieve orders or do basic work at work…
Response to e-mails will continue to be slow, please be patient!
Dillies, of Bubbles & Gondola, which received effusive praise and got 2 Eisner noms, has his next GN out, Abelard, and you can get it at your comics stores now! as well as everywhere else, including soon as an e-book or from Comixology.
