Hailing from the UK (Manchester), but currently residing – and making comics in – the US (St. Louis), Sacha Mardou, who, as a comics creator, goes simply by Mardou, has been dilligently and unobtrusively producing insightful and entertaining comics that have been gradually accreting into a small but significant body of work. Long a Copacetic favorite, her comics have been steady sellers at our shop and it has been been our intention to bring them to the attention of our online custmers for quite some time. Now, at last, with the release of The Sky in Stereo, the first installment of what looks to be by far her most ambitious project yet,...
The COMPLETE Jack Kirbyrun of Challengers of the Unknown. These issues were published between 1956 and 1959,and can be seen as somewhat of a prototype of The Fantastic Four. THe printing in this volume is crisp and clear, and the colors are bright, on flat (NOT glossy, thankfully) white paper.
Added Bonus: Issues #4 through #8 are inked by Wallace "Wally" Wood.
(Book One of the New Edition of the collected Love and Rockets) Most frequenters of this space are hep to the wonder of Love and Rockets. However, there are still those who have yet to see the light. Are you someone who still hasn't managed to get around to reading the greatest comics ever produced? If so, all we've got to say is: if you haven't read the original run of Love and Rockets (in any one of its extant formats) and you are trawling the web looking for exciting new releases and looking through back issue bins at your friendly neighborhood comics shop for classics of the days of yore, then you are simply wasting your time -- the...
Here's an item that we've had in stock at the store for awhile now, but failed to give it the attention that it deserves. And so now, in emulation of this fine work's protagonist, Takeshi Shiga, we are coming down from our mountain refuge to set things straight. This work is as excellent a piece of craftmanship as you are likely to find anywhere in comics today. Let's just come right out and say it: Jiro Taniguchi is the man. Divided into a meticulously planned and expertly paced thirteen chapters, this book presents a classic story arc involving an archetypal man of honor repaying a debt. The archetype to which Shiga belongs falls into...
Yes! The latest volume in the epic 30-volume Carl Barks Library has arrived (we believe that this is Volume 15, despite it stating that it is Volume 13 on the copyright/indicia page). This one is perhaps the most riotous volume yet, filled with more fun-filled antics than any other yet published. This is due in no small part to Fantagraphics' decision to follow the stories that make up Donald Duck No. 26 -- one of the last wholly by Barks -- which includes the title track "Trick or Treat", with a whoppingfourteen consecutive classic 10-pagers! Originally published in a stretch that ran from late 1952 through 1953, these 10-pagers are...

This volume picks up where Luba and Her Family leaves off and also containswork that was originally created and published in the late 1990s, during the hiatus between the first and second volumes of Love and Rockets, collecting the comicsthat appeared in the pages of Luba #3 - 9, Luba's Comics & Stories #2 - 5 and Measles #3. Dark impulses lead to violence and despair, are channelled through sex, role playing and other games, occasionally leading the players to the light of...
Think of how much a better place the world would be if, when people heard the name Ron, instead of thinking of Ronald Reagan, Ronald McDonald orL. Ron Hubbard,they instead all thought of Ron Regé, Jr.! We can all now do our part to make this a reality by partaking in Ron's mega-masterwork of mental (re)mapping,The Cartoon Utopia, wherein Ron dives deep into the waters oftheosophy, through which a peck of profound painters of the previous turn-of-the-century swam – most notablyWassily KandinskyandPiet Mondrian, en route to their mature styles – and also ascends into the abstruse realms ofalchemythatinformed artworks of...
