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!
Ack! We’re very late with this as Previews for October is already in stores today but we do have a very special book scheduled for September, in case you weren’t already aware, the next graphic novel by Dillies of Bubbles & Gondola that got 2 Eisner noms:
Renaud Dillies, art, Régis Hautière, story
The charm of Renaud Dillies strikes again: after the mouse of Bubbles and Gondola, here is another dreamer, little chick Abelard. To lure pretty Epily, Abelard sees only one solution: to catch the moon for her! So off he goes to America, the country which invented flying machines. Armed with his banjo and his proverb-sharing hat, he launches out on the country roads, meets Gypsies, then Gaston, a grumpy bear with whom he will share a good bit of his way… As opposed to dreamer Abelard, Gaston has his feet firmly planted on the ground. With this funny animal road-movie where the absurd becomes poetry, Régis Hautière and Renaud Dillies offer us another small jewel.
