Reviews
"Each of the book's twenty chapters is illustrated by a different artist; this variety invigorates the story in much the same way that Bowie's surprising work did. And each micro-narrative is supplemented by texts and stunning photographs, the former of which sometimes repeat details from the panels.
David Bowie in Comics is a thorough, stirring graphic biography of the musical icon."

Big Scoop of Ice Cream

BIG SCOOP OF ICE CREAM
Conxita Herrero Delfa

It's about life in our time, about being a young adult woman in the early twenty first century.
Conxita, in her twenties, the latest representative of a whole generation, lost her heart somewhere between Madrid and Barcelona. A 'real spitfire' according to her mother, she faces everyday events with great courage. A former student of Fine Arts, she draws her every adventure, from her apartment that she shares with a girl who's her mirror image, her household, her computer, her dreams to elsewhere, her escapes to the beach, her telephone conversations with friends, to her more or less happy dates. In this autobiographical tale in seventeen short tableaux, Conxita Herrero shakes up preconceived ideas about the transition to adulthood. In a minimalist and rigorous style, she plays with antagonisms and mixes inertia and movement, silent panels and intimate, mysterious dialogues, bare lines and pure colors. Freeing herself from the "concern for truth" specific to the autobiography, the author sheds any sentimentality and provides her sets and her characters with sketchy features a strange and fascinating dimension oscillating between reality and dream.

Bluesman

BLUESMAN
Rob Vollmar, Pablo Callejo
Now collected into one stunning paperback!
This story, structured like a traditional twelve bar blues song, with three sections each made of four chapters, follows blues musician Lem Taylor's harrowing journey starting from juke joints he appears in to across Arkansas of the late twenties, a black man hunted down for a crime he didn't commit. A racially intense story presenting a significant aspect of black history, its music, its social injustice.
Reviews
"A moody masterpiece of fiction that is all the more compelling because every word of it could be true. [Uses] a broad visual palette that matches its dramatic variety of emotions."
-Teacher Librarian
"The stuff of legend blues" -Library Media Connection
"Takes you directly into the world of the traveling bluesmen of that era. The story is thoughtful and engaging, and the art work is amazing." -Thedevilsmusic.net
"In its knowing play of dark words and raw images, Rob Vollmar and Pablo Callejo's earthy graphic novel tells a tale worth hearing – and seeing. Bluesman, in the end, is a cathartic ghost story. Is there a better description of the blues?" -Laurel Maury, NPR

Dungeon Early Years, vol. 3

DUNGEON EARLY YEARS, VOL. 3: Without a Sound
Lewis Trondheim; Joann Sfar; Stephane Oiry; Christophe Gaultier
The legend of the founding of Dungeon continues with two all-new chapters! Old Arakou, Hyacinthe's father, feels rusty and mopes at the idea of dying in his bed. He never ceases to remember the old heroic days and his pals he wants to connect back with. So, he mounts his faithful steed, much to the chagrin of Alexandra who, worried for him, accompanies him on this crazy ride. Meanwhile, in the ruins of Antipolis, Comor and a handful of lords are preparing to take back power...
The second story brings the return of young Marvin to the Dungeon, ready to become its most faithful protector. The city of Antipolis destroyed, his father dead, Hyacinthe de Cavallère finds himself alone to fight against the threats of the attackers eager to appropriate the Dungeon. The duchies of Clérembard and Vaucanson are determined to enlarge their territories ... but they are not expecting the fierce opposition awaiting them, that of the most powerful of the warriors in the making: Marvin the Saurian.

Karim Nedjari, Chloé Célérien
What does Muhammad Ali, the greatest boxer of all time, have in common with Megan Rapinoe, the badass pink-haired female soccer player?

ALGORITHMIC REALITY

ALGORITHMIC REALITY
Damian Bradfield, David Sánchez
Your phone reminds you all day long that you were interested in buying those shoes. Your device knows the places where you go, the books you like and your friends' faces. The world's most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. The more they know about you, the better you can be targeted, and then, monetized. The British businessman Damian Bradfield, co-founder of WeTransfer, and the Spanish comics author David Sánchez build an ironic dystopic world, disturbingly similar to ours, to explore the addictive effects of social media, the stealthy invasion of privacy and the dangers of data misuse. With a wry acidic sense of humor, they blur the boundaries between the online and offline worlds and spin disturbingly recognizable tales about our overconnected society.

The GREAT FOOD IN COMICS SET

The GREAT FOOD IN COMICS SET
Franckie Alarcon
Two delicious books in comics on food reunited! Sushi and Chocolate are explored.
Fly to Japan and come discover all there is to know about sushi. After revealing the secrets of chocolate to us, Franckie Alarcon offers a gourmet panorama of this exceptional dish that has conquered the planet! But do you really know sushi? The author traveled to Japan to meet all the players involved in the making of this true work of culinary art. From the traditional starred chef to the young cook who is shaking up the rules, including all the artisans and producers involved, this book covers the most emblematic of Japanese products from A to Z. A fascinating journey of discovery that, along the way, tells a lot about Japan itself. You'll never believe the precision and detailed obsession with quality ingredients involved.
And for Dessert: Following Jacques Genin for a year, Franckie Alarcon hobnobbed with one of the biggest chefs of Chocolate. Former chef and pastry chef for prestigious restaurants, this super-talented autodidact shares all his passion and knowledge of chocolate and his process for creating recipes. In this docu-comic, we travel with the starry-eyed author, satisfying many a craving from the chef's amazing atelier above his store, trying his hand as an apprentice, all the way to the Peruvian cocoa plantations where another chef shows how one carefully chooses the beans.
