Peanuts Every Sunday v09 - 1991-1995 (2021)
English | CBR | 266 pages | 300.54 MB

Peanuts has almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white. But many who read the popular comic strip during its original newspaper run remain fond of the striking, pastel-heavy coloring of its Sunday pages, which made for a surprisingly different and fulfilling reading experience. As Peanuts enters the '90s, all the classic characters - Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Pig-Pen, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie - are all present, as is the brightest star of the strip, Snoopy. This volume highlights the wacky friendship between Snoopy and Woodstock, Charlie Brown's supreme ineptitude on the ball field, and the amusing hijinks of Snoopy's desert-roaming brother, Spike.
Collected in this gorgeous, oversized coffee table book, the strips in Peanuts Every Sunday 1991-1995 have been scrupulously restored and re-colored to look better than they ever have - allowing fans and new readers to immerse themselves in Charles M. Schulz's timeless masterpiece.

The Man Who Grew His Beard by Olivier Schrauwen (2010)
The Man Who Grew His Beard by Olivier Schrauwen (2010)
English | CBR | 113 pages | 242.64 MB

The Man Who Grew His Beard is Belgian cartoonist Olivier Schrauwen's first American book after having staked a reputation as one of Europe's most talented storytellers. It collects seven short stories, each a head-spinning display of craft and storytelling that mixes early twentieth-century comics influences like Winsor McCay with a thoroughly contemporary voice that provokes and entertains with subversively surreal humor and subtle criticism of twentieth-century tropes and images. The stories themselves, though each stands alone, are intertwined thematically, offering peeks into the minds of semi-autistic, achingly isolated men and their feverish inner worlds and how they interact and contrast with their real environment. Though Schrauwen taps "surrealist" or "absurdist" impulses in his work, you will not read a more careful and precise collection of stories this year. The stories included are: "Hair Types," a hilarious piece that on the surface explores the pseudoscientific classification of personality as a function of hair but becomes something more akin to a fable about self-fulfilling prophecy; "Chromo Congo," a silent story about two men on safari who meet a corpulent and obnoxious hunter; as well as "The Task," "The Man Who Grew His Beard," "The Lock," "The Cave," and "The Imaginist."

The Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting) contains three incredibly in-depth and candid interviews with creators Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez: one conducted by writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline); one conducted some six years into the comic's run by longtime L&R publisher Gary Groth; and one conducted by the book's author, spanning Gilbert's, Jaime's and Mario's careers, and looking to the future of the ongoing series, with a follow-up conversation with Groth. This book has foldout family trees for both Gilbert's Palomar and Jaime's Locas storylines; unpublished art; a character glossary (which is handy, considering that Gilbert alone has created 50+ characters!); highlights from the original series' anarchic letters columns; timelines; and the most wide-ranging Hernandez Brothers bibliography ever compiled, including album and DVD covers, posters and more.

English | CBR | 118 pages | 442.47 MB

Part slapstick, tongue-twisting comedy, part escapist, Depression-era fantasy, part tenderhearted yet tumultuous romance, Elsie Crisler Segar's newspaper comic strip captivated readers of the Roaring Twenties and beyond. And Popeye, the sailor man, was the unlikely start of the show. Fantagraphics is thrilled to bring Segar's whimsical world back into print, reviving the origins of the beloved spinach-eating American icon for a whole new readership. The E.C. Segar Popeye Sundays series collects the complete Popeye Sunday stories in four gorgeous full-color volumes, each packaged in a deluxe slipcase.
Volume one (1931-1932) highlights Popeye's riotous romance with his sweet patootie - Olive Oyl. As he courts Olive in comically clumsy fashion, she proves that her sharp wit runs rings around his muddled brain! Next, he becomes a prizefighter and must contend with a series of fearsome opponents, from Johnny Brawn to a literal gorilla. Once outside the ring, however, his ferocity turns to sweet sentiment, and he gives away all his winnings to poor widows, old folks, and orphanages. Featuring laugh-out-loud gags, sensational slugfests, and endearing cast of characters, this revival of classic Popeye adventures will captivate stalwart fans and new readers alike.

Leaf (2015)
English | CBR | 93 pages | 256.20 MB

How much power does a single man, let alone a single leaf, have in the industrial world? In this wordless, all-ages graphic novel, our protagonist discovers a leaf that radiates a vibrant light. He returns to a detailed metropolis - depicted in somber grays and blues - and searches for answers. During his quest, he stumbles upon a man who knows what's really happening in the city's labyrinthine ducts; a woman who spends her life studying and classifying obsolete flora; and the truth about the ever-dwindling environment. Leaf is a graphically stunning story that unfolds with a dream-like pace. Shaded in pencil and punctuated by spot colors, drawn in a delicate but concretely realized tonal approach reminiscent of Shaun Tan's The Arrival and Chris Van Allsburg's Jumanji, Chinese cartoonist Daishu Ma's first foray onto American shelves is ultimately a hopeful vision of the coexistence of the urban and natural worlds.

There was the film; there was the album; there was the tour; and now, the final piece of Tenacious D's masterful Post-Apocalypto universe: the graphic novel, complete with accompanied audio. In the fall of 2018, the Greatest Band in the World - Tenacious D (comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass) - added arguably its most crucial work to an already scintillating catalogue of rock greatness: Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto the movie (available on YouTube) and Post-Apocalypto the album. And now - with great excitement - Tenacious D will add the final piece to the Post-Apocalypto universe: the graphic novel, which Jack Black drew and Kyle Gass wrote, complete with accompanied audio. Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb. Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950s refrigerator), the duo quickly learn that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent - for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world. With unimaginable twists and turns, an insane visit to the White House, a time machine, a space adventure, and the help of some tried-and-true daddy issues, Post-Apocalypto is as hilarious as it is political, and as brilliant and multi-faceted as its incredible creators.

Danish cartoonist Rikke Villadsen makes her English language debut with this story of a sailor that is playfully creepy and oddly beautiful. A fisherman's life traversing the ocean is full of danger and surprise, but even the most experienced seafarer would not be ready to pull up their net after they've caught a newborn baby and a talking fish! Thus begins a story full of expressive pencil drawings, provocative symbolism, and a madness that doesn't just bubble beneath the surface of the water, but drenches the sailor, and the reader, like a tidal wave. Depicted in distinctive, and often grotesque, graphite, these unlikely shipmates trek through the thick fog, provoked by nature's powerful siren song and perhaps something even more sinister. Revelations arise about the sailor's perplexing childhood and the dubious birth of the mysterious baby as waves violently crash against the ship, already in a descent toward absurdity. Villadsen's first foray into the American literary scene is ultimately about the end of one life,the beginning of another, and a man, literally and figuratively, lost at sea.

English | CBR | 130 pages | 175.07 MB

In Paco Roca's intensely intimate and international award-winning graphic novel, The House, three adult siblings return to their family's quaint vacation home a year after their father's death. They each bring their respective wives, husbands, and children there with the intention to clean up the residence and put it on the market, but as garbage is hauled off and dust is wiped away, decades-old resentments quickly fill the vacant home. Through flashbacks into each sibling's memories - the fig trees they grew up climbing, the pergola they never got
around to build, the final visits to the hospital - Roca gives us a glimpse into domestic moments of joy, guilt, and disappointment while asking what happens to brothers and sisters when the only person holding the family together is now gone. Much like the film The Big Chill, The House is both painful and touching, brilliantly rendered on panoramic pages by Roca, who is known for his empathetic books like the 2017 Eisner Award-nominated Wrinkles. At once deeply
personal (dedicated to Roca's own deceased father) and entirely universal, The House details the struggle to overcome the past, but still hold onto the memories.
