Done?

So here’s what the cover for my Turkmenistan book ended up looking like, which is a bit different from what I originally intended. The drawing I’d posted earlier turned out to be too busy, so it became the basis for the background. Also as you can see Terry won me over on the title and […]

George Khoury has posted a great interview of the wonderful Spanish artist Miguelanxo Prado on Comic Book Resources by whom we’ve published quite a few books over the years. Besides his remarkable comics, Prado went on to put a touch of class into the animated version of Men in Black. I still love his Streak of […]

From Comics 212: “I haven’t yet gotten around to publishing my Best-Graphic-Novels-of-2008 List, but the first collection of Lewis Trondheim’s Little Nothings is most assuredly on it. Little Nothings is the series of collections of Trondheim’s diary comics–moments from his days being one of the most respected cartoonists in the world, and the international travel […]

First Time gets more reviews

“Being that this is my first time reviewing for Tart, I found the title on the cover of First Time entirely appropriate. I never thought I’d find erotic entertainment to be fancy, seductive, thought-provoking and titillating. After years of exposure to hentai (which makes me giggle like a little girl at all the tentacular penises […]

A strange thing happened on saturday night. I’ve been working on the last chapter of Graylight over the last two or-so weeks, but I got stunted because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted on the very last spread. I’d been focusing on the three main characters. Which ones to show and in what context? […]

The reviews are coming in for our newly released latest Volume 3 of Dungeon Zenith: “Hysterically funny. Endlessly inventive” The Comic Book Bin “Ah, Dungeon, what pleasures you bring me. Boulet is comfortably upholding the artistic standards of previous forays into Dungeon. Joann Sfar and Lewis Trondheim … man, these two guys can seemingly do […]

Turkmenbashy

So I think (I think) my Turkmenistan book is pretty much done. Terry’s read it, mentioned some changes. I’ve made the changes. I still need to put the cover together, the end feels close. I think Terry and I have settled on a title of The Golden Age: Two Years in Turkmenistan. And along with […]

Well, we’re putting to bed the next great entry in our Forever Nuts collection of classic comic strips, Bringing Up Father, and it looks gorgeous. The strips have been meticulously restored and we end up with a colorful foreword by Bill Blackbeard, short but quite sweet, and a great intro by R.C. Harvey who gives […]

Well it’s out on blogs, especially Heidi McDonald’s The Beat. Veronique Tanaka of Metronome that we published is in fact… Bryan Talbot. Yes, that Bryan of Luther Arkwright, The Tale of One Bad Rat (which I personally think is his magnum opus) and more recently Alice in Sunderland. And of the Art of Bryan Talbot […]
