New Books..

The Best American Comics 2008
This newest edition to the Best American Series--"A genuine salute to comics" (Houston Chronicle)--returns with a set of both established and up-and-coming contributors. Editor Lynda Barry and and brand new series editors Jessica Abel and Matt Madden--acclaimed cartoonists in their own right-- have sought out the best stories culled from graphic novels, pamphlet comics, newspapers, magazines, mini-comics, and the Web to create this cutting-edge collection "perfect for newbies as well as fans"--The San Diego Union Tribune. This newest volume features luminaries like Chris Ware, Seth, and Alison Bechdel alongside beloved daily cartoonists like Matt Groening.


The Complete Moomin vol 3

A third installment in a top-selling series returns readers to Moominvalley, where Moomin falls in love with a damsel in distress, the valley is transformed into a tropical rain forest by an unseasonably warm spell, and a flying saucer crashes into Moominmamma's garden.


Ghost World: The Special Edition

A commemorative tenth anniversary expanded edition of a classic graphic work combines the original novel with its Oscar-nominated screenplay adaptation, the rarely seen comic strip created for the Ghost World soundtrack, and more than two dozen pages of rare and obscure bonus material.


Berlin, Book Two: City of Smoke By Jason Lutes
The second volume of Jason Lutes's historical epic finds the people of Weimar Berlin searching for answers after the lethal May Day demonstration of 1929. As with Berlin Book One: City of Stones , Lutes creates a sense of anxiety, of the doom to come.


My Brain is hanging upside down By David Heatley
In 2004 David Heatley's strip 'My Sexual History' originally appeared in comics anthology 'Kramer's Ergot'.
The strip is honest depictions of every sexual experience he ever had, which received great reviews by "Publisher's Weekly", which singled out the strip and remarked that it was 'page after page of tiny, crudely rendered but wincingly remembered incidents'.
