English | CBR | 186 pages | 100.24 MB

From her first comics published in the Evergeen State College school paper to her influential weekly comic strip, Ernie Pook's Comeek; from her bestselling creative how-to memoir comic books, What It Is and Picture This, to her novels, graphic memoirs, plays, and awards in between, Lynda Barry has been part of the North American alternative comics scene for thirty years.
Everything collects all of the seminal Ernie Pook's Comeek and includes her earliest books such as Boys & Girls and Big Ideas. It also features an introduction penned by Barry, complete with photographs. Reflective of the early 1980s before the appearance of Barry's well-known characters Marlys and Arna, the comics in Everything Volume 1 cover the more adult subjects of bad love, bad perms, being single, Prince, and miserable break-ups - resulting in one of the most oft-quoted Barry sayings: "Love is an exploding cigar which we all willingly smoke."
Though Barry's early drawing style is most often described as "scratchy"-her affinity for large swaths of text and narration; fondness for exclamation marks; angular shapes cursive penmanship: and her uncanny ability to zero in the very essence of life all within a few panels is as present as ever in this collection.

The Clitoris (2022)
English | CBR | 185 pages | 376.84 MB

Set in a surreal dreamscape, The Clitoris is a new graphic novel by Rikke Villadsen that explores sexual identity and gender constructions. A woman has an encounter with a tattooist that leads to pregnancy, and this unexpected event leads her on a journey of self-discovery. Deep in the flickering world of her subconscious, she discovers many potent symbols, poetic wonders, spiritual guides, and strange visions - an opium smoking guru, a Marilyn Monroe performance in Korea in 1954, an homage to Tintin in the Soviet Union, to name a few. Along the way, the protagonist comes to terms with her situation and herself and ultimately accepts what she came from. She hurries back home and reunites with the child.
Rendered in her raw, immediate graphite style, and delving into her innermost fears, desires, and self-doubts, The Clitoris is perhaps Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen's most intimate work to date. A fiercely feminist, playful, ironic, and introspective graphic novel that proves Villadsen to be an undeniable creator to follow in the global comics scene.

English | CBR | 137 pages | 187.49 MB

Other Lives follows three former college classmates: a self-loathing journalist whose family secret is the least of his problems; his girlfriend, whose obsession with getting married borders on Bridezilla status; a conspiracy theorist who may or may not work for the Homeland Security but definitely lives with his mother; and a divorced, unemployed gaming addict who lives in his car. While it's their past that unites them, it's their fabricated online identities - some more dangerous than others - that lead to their "real" lives colliding years later.
Originally published in 2010 by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, Other Lives is Bagge's first post-Hate original graphic novel and has been out of print for several years. Fantagraphics is proud to publish this new edition, at a time when Bagge's oeuvre is enjoying renewed interest following the release of The Complete Hate in late 2020.

At 40, cartoonist Paco Roca has finally achieved his childhood dream - to spend all day at home in his pajamas! However, his blissful, loungewear-clad reverie is beset with a host of mundane problems: He dreads small talk with "the world's biggest bore," but his excuses and white lies are finally catching up with him. When good friends breaks up, taking either side could lead to social disaster. The simple mission to change his train ticket descends into an impossibly complicated, Kafkaesque affair. And worst of all, his partner keeps hanging the toilet paper roll the wrong way! In the vein of sitcoms like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, Roca's comic vignettes brilliantly satirize the pesky pitfalls of modern-day life. Like most of us, Roca's alter ego just wants to be liked and to do the right thing, but finds that through crippling indecision, cowardly behavior, and the absurd machinations of the universe, he is usually thwarted. The ensuing situations he finds himself embroiled in are as hilarious as they are often painfully relatable.

With Marco and Stella's lukewarm romance already on the ropes, Daniele's insistent intrusions aren't helping. But when Marco meets Lulu, a single mother and femme fatale with enlarged breasts and a mysterious background, he develops an interest that soon veers into obsession and awakens in him a problematic and long dormant sexuality. With a voyeuristic gaze, Vila lays his characters bare, observing them in their hypocrisies, insecurities, and unmentionable desires. Vila's cartooning is alive. Working in a mostly naturalistic mode, he distorts his characters just enough to imbue them with a visceral charge that fuels the narrative's lust.A psychological and grotesque character drama that doubles as an erotic thriller about erotic obsession, mourning, a sense of inadequacy, and the search for surrogates of affection, Milky Way won prizes and garnered considerable acclaim upon release in Italy in 2022.

Macanudo - Optimism is for the Brave (2023)
English | CBR | 178 pages | 150.11 MB

The second volume in Fantagraphics' English-language collection of the internationally beloved newspaper strip.
Elves, witches, forest monsters, unicorns, children, talking cats and penguins... plus zombies with fitbits, Stephen King's Christine working as an Uber, and office politics? The bounds of a daily comic strip don't restrict Macanudo's imagination or subjects.
With the range of The Far Side, the whimsy of Mutts, and the heart of Calvin & Hobbes, artist Liniers brings his distinctive illustrative line and sensitive watercolors to whatever crosses his mind on a given day. Readers of the previous volume will recognize some recurring characters and stock players, but each book stands alone, and every strip builds its own world. Whether commenting on pop culture, society, or the environment, or celebrating art, nature or the act of reading, Liniers (Ricardo Siri) expresses his thoughts with joy and beauty. Most of them are pretty funny, too.
Beginning in 2002 in Buenos Aires, Macanudo steadily gained popularity around the world, and has been appearing in US newspapers since 2018. Optimism Is for the Brave is the second of a series of volumes collecting Liniers' groundbreaking strip.

Macanudo - Welcome to Elsewhere (2022)
English | CBR | 175 pages | 136.80 MB

In the spirit of Calvin & Hobbes, Mutts, and Krazy Kat, Liniers (Ricardo Siri) uses a shifting cast of children, talking animals, imaginary monsters, sensitive robots, occasional elves, and anthropomorphized objects to perform gags, philosophize, muse on nature, and engage in surreal, artistic flights of fancy. With delicate, calligraphic pen work and understated watercolors, the comic skips lightly from style to style and subject to subject, as Liniers allows his imagination and observational humor free reign. Jokes about domestic life, imagined scenarios of historical figures, Cthulu showing up to Tinder dates, characters simply enjoying a pastoral sunset, the puncturing of pop-culture stalwarts: Macanudo is a boundless canvas for its author's humane and delightfully off-kilter view of the world, in a way few comic strips have ever even attempted. Beginning in 2002 in Buenos Aires, Macanudo steadily gained popularity around the world, appearing in US newspapers since 2018. Welcome to Elsewhere is the first of a series of volumes collecting Liniers' groundbreaking strip.

Tommi Parrish's sophomore graphic novel establishes them as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary literature.
2023 LA Times Book Prize NOMINEE, Graphic Novel/Comics
Eliza is a thirtysomething struggling single mother and poet. Sasha, a twentysomething yearning for direction in life, just moved back in with her parents and dabbles as a sex worker. The two strike up an unlikely friendship that, as it veers toward something more, becomes a deeply resonant exploration of how far people are wil­ling to go to find intimacy in a society that is increasingly not conducive to it.
In Sasha and Eliza, Parrish has created two of the most fully realized characters in recent contemporary fiction. Parrish's gorgeously painted pages showcase a graceful understanding of body language and ear for dialogue, brilliantly using the medium of comics to depict the dissonance between the characters' interior and exterior experiences. Men I Trust is about not-always-healthy people attempting to make healthy connections in a disconnected world, and is one of the most moving and insightful works of literary fiction in any medium this year.
