Giant

GIANT
Mikael
New York, early 1930s. A mysterious, laconic Irish colossus known as 'Giant' sweats blood, along with his fellow immigrants, to build the skyscrapers of Rockefeller Center. For a while, he has not received a reply to the typewritten letters he continues to send, as well as money, to the other side of the ocean, to Mary Ann, the wife of one of his colleagues who died accidentally. Giant, who seems to be afraid of nothing, still has not found the courage to reveal to the young woman that she is a widow ... What does her silence mean? 
An entrancing everyday working-class tale with the majestic background of the rising skyscrapers of New York.
Reviews
"Set during the construction of Rockefeller Center in the 1930s, this spectacularly drawn historical epic brings Depression-era New York City to riotous, romanticized life. Lives up to its inspiring setting, a muscular young city in a nation of immigrants, brimming with stories to tell."

PHOOLAN DEVI

PHOOLAN DEVI, Rebel Queen
Claire Fauvel
She rebelled against the ancient tribal rules of India, her country, resulting in her becoming a Robin Hood type bandit. Essentially sold at the age of 11 to become a wife for a much older man, she ran away when he raped her. From that point on, there were few choices for her but to join a roaming gang of bandits, her ambition leading her to become their rebel chief. Ultimately, society caught up with her and she even became a strong voice for change as a representative in the Indian parliament.
A story of courage and unbending determination in front of centuries of established inequities in the classic Indian caste system.

LINCOLN HIGHWAY
750cc DOWN LINCOLN HIGHWAY
Bernard Chambaz, Barroux
"I hate marathons. Hate running. An hour before the start, I received a text. Instead of 'Good luck,' it was 'We're finished.' So, I went to a bar next to the subway on 96th. Had a few bourbons with some other mope. Then I got on a bike and took off down the old Lincoln Highway."
Forget Route 66. This is the original cross-country highway that takes you through REAL America, the first to cross all of the US from the Big Apple to the City on the Bay. This is THE road trip. On a 750cc bike.
Reviews
"One of the most anticipated graphic novels of Winter 2020."

"Like a Gallic Jim Jarmusch road movie (though shorter), this slim motorcycle diary has its moments."

RODIN
Eddy Simon, Joel Alessandra
This comics biography of one of the greatest sculptors who ever lived is done with the collaboration of the Rodin Museum and includes a preface by its director. It views his life through the eyes of the three women who shared his life for good or for bad.

FORBIDDEN HARBOR
FORBIDDEN HARBOR
Teresa Radice & Stefano Turconi
In the summer of 1807, the Explorer, a ship from Her Majesty's Navy recovers a young shipwreck off the coast of Siam, Abel, who can only remember his name. He soon becomes friends with the first officer, acting as a captain because the commander of the ship has apparently absconded with the ship's treasure. Abel returns to England with the Explorer and finds accommodation at the inn run by the three fugitive captain's daughters. Well before he can recover his memory, however, he will discover something deeply disturbing about himself, and he will understand the true nature of some of the people who helped him.
A haunting and intense book that digs into the soul of the protagonists as well as the reader, with a generous helping of good 'ole fashioned salty adventure along with many a shanty sung, and a sprinkling of magic dust. Presented in a handsome old style, worn-looking hardcover, as if taken from a ship captain's library. An uplifting, enthralling escape.

EINSTEIN
Albert EINSTEIN, The Poetry of Real
Manuel Garcia Iglesias, Marwan Kahil
When he's five years old, Albert Einstein's father offers him a compass that triggers in him an irrepressible need to understand the laws of the universe. At first a simple employee of the Swiss Patent Office in Bern, the young Einstein published in 1905 a series of scientific articles that question everything that was thought to be known in the world of physics. His theory, summed up by the formula E = mc2, opens to humanity the doors of the power of the atom... Legendary Genius, but also a great humanist, he lives through the first half of the 20th century, with all its horrors and contradictions, in the service of science, but distraught by what man's madness is capable of doing with it.

THE YEAR OF LOVING DANGEROUSLY

THE YEAR OF LOVING DANGEROUSLY
Ted RallPablo Callejo
It's New York City in the 1980s and Ted Rall is in college. Everything is fine before his pranks, lack of focus and restlessness get him expelled. Unable to find a job and rejected by his parents, he considers suicide. By happenstance he finds comfort in the arms of many women as he bed-hops around the five boroughs. It's better than homelessness, but the psychic toll of selling himself and his affection was higher than he imagined.
Both acidly funny and brutally honest, Rall, a cartoonist both beloved and reviled for his edgy politics, pours out his guts in this remembrance of this most difficult chapter in his life.
Revised paperback edition.

ROLLING STONES

The ROLLING STONES in Comics!
Ceka and various artists.
When the Rolling Stones hit the scene in the 60's, it was to play Rhythm & Blues, nothing more.

Sticking their tongue out at the establishment with their brilliant music and hard-hitting lyrics, they achieve planetary-wide success. With Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in the lead, these rebels have become, over fifty years, not just music, but a whole attitude! Through twenty-one stories in comics accompanied by biographical texts and a rich iconography, this book makes you relive, in a totally new way, the incredible epic of one of the biggest rock bands ever.

Philip K. DICK
Coming end of January!
Philip K. DICK
A Comics Biography
Laurent Queyssi, writer, Mauro Marchesi, art
One of the greatest writers in SF history, Philip K. Dick is mostly remembered for such works as Blade Runner, Minority Report and Total Recall. His dark fascinating work centered on alternate universes and shifting realities in worlds often governed by monopolistic corporations and authoritarian governments. His own life story seems a tussle with reality, going through five wives and becoming increasingly disjointed with fits of paranoia and hallucinations fueled by abuse of drugs meant to stabilize him. His dramatic story is presented unvarnished in this biography.
