There have been quite a few interesting recent releases of books taking a variety of approaches to American comics, from both mainstream and academic publishers.  Ranging from the history of American comics and an immersive look at specifically Marvel comics to a muti-pronged media studies survey of comics and its audiences, a revealing look at the implicit political content of comics, some fresh research into the relationship of Japanese manga to American comics, and a deconstruction of the sexual subtexts of super heroes.  Check 'em out!

Also, we just got a restock on both volumes of the collected writings of Hayao Miyazaki :)

Please Note: While all of these titles are currently on sale in the shop, none of them are yet up on the site.

And, yes, 2022 is off to a faster start than it may appear from our current listings as there are indeed plenty of great new releases gracing the new arrivals table at the shop that have yet to be listed here on the website.  Here's a look at some noteworthy examples:

Store Status Update for The Omicron Age

Internet ordering continues to operate as usual.

The shop continues to be open Thursday through Monday, from 11am to 4pm (to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday).
 
In addition, we would like to let store customers know that, for what it’s worth, we have installed the highest level HVAC filtration – MERV 13 – that our furnace can handle.  We are also – currently – keeping the door to the outside hallway open, keeping the the front and rear windows open a few inches, and intermittently running an exhaust fan in the rear of the shop, so the air in the shop is being continually renewed.

The same, current restrictions continue to remain in place: 

1) Masks are required to be worn in the shop at all times.

2) Complimentary medical gloves and hand-sanitizer are provided upon entry to the shop for anyone who would like to employ them – but they are no longer required. 

3) There is a limit of FIVE customers in the shop at any one time.

Also, we are, generally, limiting shop visits to 30 minutes.
