The Beguiling Recommends…
AUG090884 Pim & Francie In Golden Days HC 28.99
You know who doesn’t put out a lot of comics? Al Columbia. The initiated are already familiar with–and largely in awe of–Columbia’s work, and this is the first major release in… geeze, it might be his first ‘graphic novel’ release? Comics, art, storybook pages, sketches, and much more. His recent acclaimed outings in MOME were just a taste of what this book has to offer. Don’t miss it!
SEP090803 Hot Potatoe HC 39.95
Also skirting the line between comics and fine art and everything in-between, HOT POTATOE is a new collection of work by Marc Bell, published by Drawn & Quarterly. It’s a lovely oversized book, a treat for fans and an easy introduction to all that Bell has to offer to newcomers.
JUL090054 Usagi Yojimbo HC Yokai 14.95
JUN090605 Criminal Deluxe Ed 49.99
Both of these fine books were announced by Diamond as shipping last week, which is frustrating because Diamond didn’t ship them to Canada until this week. Still, this is a brand new, full colour original hardcover graphic novel featuring Usagi Yojimbo, and a sterling collection of the popular new crime series by Brubaker and Phillips, so hopefully no one minds TOO much waiting an extra week to get them.
SEP090395 Sky Doll Doll Factory U.S. Exclusive Claire Wendling Var #1 (of 2) 5.99
This is the U.S. translation of the Skydoll guidebook/artbook/storybook, with a brand new cover by illustration and animation favourite Claire Wendling. Either you have no idea what I’m talking about, or this is a book you’ve been waiting years to buy… or buy again!
SEP090628 Supergod #1 (of 5) 3.99
Warren Ellis’ new superhero project. Lots of early interest in this one.
SEP090966 Tank Girl Skidmarks #1 (of 4) 3.99
This is one of a couple of new mini-series by the new TANK GIRL team of creator Alan Martin and Artist Rufus Dayglo! We were lucky enough to have Dayglo in town for a signing a few months back and he showed me some of the pages for this–looks fantastic! All y’all Tank Girl fans, make sure to come by this week! We ordered a bunch but it’s HIGHLY UNLIKELY that we’ll ever be able to get a re-order on this one as it’s from a British publisher.
JUL090344 Beast GN 15.99
Finally, this one’s a bit of a shot in the dark for me but it looks pretty solid. It’s an original graphic novel by a relative newcomer named Marian Churchland (she illustrated a few issues of Elephantmen and a ‘Conan’ one-shot), but the art looks brilliant and evocative. I’m gonna give it a go myself, give it a flip. Interview/Preview here:
