ERNEST & REBECCA #3 “Grandpa Bug”
Guillaume Bianco, writer
Antonello Dalena, artist
Rebecca is a vivacious 6-year-old girl whose best friend happens to be a germ named Ernest. He’s not only Rebecca’s best friend — he’s also her partner in mischief, adventure companion, and confidant. In this third volume of the award-winning series, Rebecca and her older sister Coralie are sent to spend the summer in the countryside with their grandparents, away from their mother and father, without Ernest. Rebecca is lost and scared without her friend, but things begin to change when she meets a dog named Missile and her “Grandpa Bug,” both of whom want nothing more than to be her friend.

THE SMURFS #13 “Smurf Soup”
“Cartooning’s craftsmanship at its height.” — The Comics Journal
When Gargamel meets a giant with an insatiable appetite, he comes up with a plan to use the giant to destroy the Smurfs: tell him that Smurfs make the most delicious soup in the world! Papa Smurf catches wind of the plot, and begins to create a potion that will enable them to turn the giant, nicknamed “Bigmouth,” against Gargamel. But when Bigmouth stumbles into the Smurfs village, the potion isn’t ready, and the Smurfs must distract the hungry giant, or meet an untimely end inside its belly.

Julie, Lucy, and Alia are best friends who share the same passion: dance!

Powered by deep percussion-based music, this style is unlike anything they’ve ever tried before. While the girls enjoy their new art form, problems at home and in the classroom threaten to cause them to have to stop taking their dance classes. Can the girls balance their studies and their extracurricular activities, or will they have to give up dancing for good?

Here’s what we’ve got being solicited for in comics stores now. First up: an updated edition of THE book tracing the origins and evolution of the phenomenon of graphic novels in this country:
FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET: THE RISE OF THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
Introduction by Will Eisner, cover by Jeff Smith
Graphic novels have exploded off bookstore shelves and into movies, college courses and the New York Times Book Review, and onto the coffee tables of the cognoscenti. What’s fueling this explosion? Where did all the excitement come from? Stephen Weiner, a comics historian and children’s literature specialist, provides the answers in this groundbreaking book—the first history of graphic novels.
From the agonizing Holocaust vision of Art Spiegelman’s Maus to the teenage angst of Dan Clowes’s Ghost World, this book takes you into the heart of the graphic novel revolution. The author of 101 Best Graphic Novels now tells the whole history of this new medium—from the first modern urban autobiographical graphic novel, Will Eisner’s A Contract with God, to the hip indy comics of the Hernandez Bros.’ Love and Rockets, the dark mysteries of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, and the postmodern superheroics of Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight.
It’s all here, in this newly updated edition—the must-reads, the milestones, and what to look for in the future of this exciting new medium.
6×9, 80pp., B&W hardcover, $14.99, ISBN 9781561637027
AND NEW FROM EUROTICA:
A new edition of this classic now in hardcover collecting the long out of print paperbacks in thicker volumes:
SHADOW & LIGHT, vol.1
After the light of day, some people like to unwind in the shadow and let out steam in unusual ways. One man likes to be his woman’s slave, one woman dares her boyfriend to watch as she services a group of bankers, another gets a leash on her collar and lets her animal instincts run wild in front of her lover’s camera… Some of the most beautifully rendered erotic comics you will ever see, holding nothing back!
8 ½ x 11, 128pp. B&W, hardcover, $19.99, ISBN 9781561637157
See the amazing pages from this gorgeous edition in our Eurotica section (look for the October banner)
Our sister company PAPERCUTZ has a very busy line-up for October, the main news being an all-new Nancy Drew series where she’s only 8 and already solving mysteries! This features art by Stan (Archie) Goldberg.
Also in October:
A new Trondheim: Monster Turkey, the last in this charming series.
a new Geronimo Stilton
His fun graphic novel about the American Revolution where one can draw many parallels with modern day: the writing of the Constitution was a raucous, divisive process, The Tea Party uprising, the chasm between rich and poor, makes this surprisingly timely. More info.
See his blog posts on this very subject. And run get the book at your local comics shop!
Taking the occasion of a family vacation here in New York, Lewis Trondheim is taking some time from that to meet fans at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn this Friday at 8PM. Besides premiering his new series with Fantagraphics, the main occasion for this appearance, he’ll be signing Dungeon, Little Nothings and Papercutz’ Monster series, at least for as long as Bergen has stock!
Trondheim doesn’t make it that often over here so here’s a chance to meet him!
Word of warning: don’t be surprised if he sets fire to your Dungeon book after drawing Marvin the dragon breathing… fire onto the corner he will singe for you. Someone in San Diego actually got upset over this, sweartoGodcrossourheartshopetodie!
