1 A History of Underground Comics

Estren, Mark James Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

Perched halfway between college humor magazines and National Lampoon, underground comics are an overlooked component of the history of humor in this country. At their best, they're also fun as hell to read--protopunk satire, so crazy, crass, and scatological that the stories nearly drip off the page. Mark James Estren's History of Underground Comics is an excellent survey of the art in the days before Crumb was a movie star and well-mannered alternative weeklies brought Matt Groening and Lynda Barry into every suburb. As such, I wouldn't buy it for the kids; after looking at the book, my mother remarked, I don't remember them being so dirty. (Of course they were, but she was dirtier herself back then.) If you're a fan of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Trashman, Bobby London's Duck and Weevil--and you know if you are--buy this book. Even if you're from the Love and Rockets generation, take advantage of this primo guided tour

2 Anarchism for Beginners

Mayer, Marcos For Beginners 2008 9.78E+12 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 170 p. Contai Sanyu 

The ideas of Proudhon, Bakunin, and Kropotkin, that seemed to have been buried by history, especially since the second half of 20th century, are regathering their strength. As seen by the number of libertarian flags at anti-globalization and anti-corporation rallies, their axioms appear in contemporary debates on neoliberalism and ecology, the number of websites is multiplying, indeed, passing on their principles. And intellectuals like Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Osvaldo Bayer, Noam Chomsky, and Murray Boochkin recognize in their work what they've inherited from these original nonconformists. The history built by the anarchists during their fight against power, oppression and the State, that reached its highest point in farmer's communes in pre-Franco Spain, also affected the culture and were fundamental to a vanguard of artists of the 20th century, as well as being part of some popular culture phenomena, such as the punk movement. In this text by Marcos Mayer, accompanied by the notable illustrations of SanyĂş, Anarchism For Beginners covers the history and influence of this movement through its contradictions and missteps, as well as its notable creativity and indefatigable fighting spirit.

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 106 p. Contai 

Since his death in 1967, Ernesto Che Guevara has become a universally known revolutionary icon and political figure whose image is among the most recognizable in the world. This dramatic and extensively researched book breathes new life into his story, portraying his struggle through the medium of the underground political comic--one of the most prominent countercultural art forms since the 1960s. Spain Rodriguez's powerful artwork illuminates Che's life and the experiences that shaped him, from his motorcycle journey through Latin America, his rise to prominence as a leader in Fidel Castro's revolutionary movement, his travels in Africa, his involvement in the insurgency that led to his death in Bolivia, and his extraordinary legacy.

8 Diario de Oaxaca: A Sketchbook of Two Years in Mexico

Kuper, Peter Hardcover

Brand New 

Painting a vivid, personal portrait of social and political upheaval in Oaxaca, Mexico, this unique memoir employs comics, bilingual essays, photos, and sketches to chronicle the events that unfolded around a teachers' strike and led to a seven-month siege. When award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper and his wife and daughter moved to the beautiful 16th-century colonial town of Oaxaca in 2006, they planned to spend a quiet year or two enjoying a different culture and taking a break from the U.S. political climate under the Bush administration. What they hadn't counted on was landing in the epicenter of Mexico's biggest political struggle in recent years. Timely and compelling, this extraordinary firsthand account presents a distinct artistic vision of Oaxacan life, from explorations of the beauty of the environment to graphic portrayals of the fight between strikers and government troops that left more than 20 people dead, including American journalist Brad Will.

He's not slowing down either—check out the contents of this volume." —Harvey Pekar, groundbreaking graphic novelist and author of American Splendor series "I repeatedly tried to get more of Tobocman's work onto our pages, but it was deemed too radical.

10 Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation

Bradbury, Ray & Hamilton, Tim Paperback

Brand New 

Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn 'em to ashes, then burn the ashes. For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume, this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous and books are forbidden. In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world's most unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. As could only occur with Bradbury's full cooperation in this authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art that uniquely captures Montag's awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature. Including an original foreword by Ray Bradbury and fully depicting the brilliance and force of his canonic and beloved masterwork, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is an exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature. Color. Since the original expounds the importance of valuing and preserving books and knowledge, adapting it into the comics form emphasizes the growth of the medium, as well as its potency across genres and subjects. -Publishers Weekly

11 Fat Freddy's Cat Omnibus

Shelton, Gilbert Trade Paperback

Fat Freddy's Cat began life as a footnote strip to the Freak Brothers and later appeared in many comics of his own. He is often to be found sleeping on the unfortunate Fat Freddy's head. His constant battles with the never ending army of roaches out for world domination drive him to distraction, as does Fat Freddy's never-ending failure to feed him or empty his kitty litter box. As a result of this, his main hobbies seem to be shredding Fat Freddy's water bed and any other items he can sink his claws into, and finding places to leave surprise poop packages for Freddy to discover. This cat has variously gone travelling to Mexico, saved the world from alien invasion, and worked as a government agent in Washington trying to save the world from the hee hee hee drug. He has 3 nephews of unknown origin. He tends to regard the Freak Brothers with a fair bit of contempt, but despite the odd separation he always seems to hook back up with his inept roomies. Gilbert Shelton is as near as comics have come to producing a natural comedic genius. He is truly one of the greatest and most sublimely funny talents that the comics medium has to offer. -Alan Moore. The fully realised vision of a master storyteller and social critic. -Comics Journal.

12 Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil and Drugs)

Begin, Jeremy & Salk, Lauren 0977795330 / 9780977795338 Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

A comic-book primer to the frightening world in which police state control and war without end are becoming the expected norm. This analysis delves into aspects of the larger framework into which 9/11 fits and scrutinizes the ancestry of the players who transcend commonly accepted liberal/conservative political ideologies. Building on the research of such notables as theologian David Ray Griffin, Michael Rupport, and Anthony Sutton—all of whom have questioned the government’s account of 9/11—this comic-book format analysis examines the Neo Con agenda and its relationship to The New World Order. From the privatized fund-raising system to which politicians are beholden to evidence contradicting the conventional wisdom that the 19 hijackers took our nation by surprise and the widespread suppression of human rights, this book discusses key issues confronting America’s citizenry and steps the populace can take to not only halt but reverse the march towards totalitarianism.

18 Palestine

Sacco, Joe Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

Based on several months of research and an extended visit to the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the early 1990s (where he conducted over 100 interviews with Palestinians and Jews), Palestine was the first major comics work of political and historical nonfiction by Sacco, whose name has since become synonymous with this graphic form of New Journalism. Like his Safe Area Gorazde, Palestine has been favorably compared to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus, by art spiegelman, for its ability to brilliantly navigate such socially and politically-sensitive subject matter within the confines of the comic book medium. Sacco has often been called the first comic book journalist, and he is certainly the best.

23 Sticks and Stones

Kuper, Peter Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

In a barren landscape, an empire is about to rise and an epic struggle is about to unfold. This earth-shaking tale is illuminated without a single word. Peter Kuper has created a picture story of epic proportions, an intricate tale of birth and death, war and peace, the rise of an empire and the consequences of hubris, artfully told without a single word. It is as elemental as hieroglyphics, a timeless story for all ages and a cautionary tale for our present-day world. A Bush-era parable so beautiful, simple, and lucid that it could be understood and enjoyed by anyone, regardless of nationality... Highly recommended. -Alan Moore

24 Students for a Democratic Society: A Graphic History

Pekar, Harvey, and Buhle, Paul (Editor) Hill & Wang 2008 809095394 Illustrated. Hard cover

New Glued binding. Paper over boards. With dust jacket Dumm, Gary 

The history of SDS as you've never seen it before. In 1962 at a United Auto Workers' camp in Michigan, Students for a Democratic Society held its historic convention and prepared the famous Port Huron Statement, drafted by Tom Hayden. This statement, criticizing the U.S. government's failure to pursue international peace or address domestic inequality, became the organization's manifesto. Its last convention was held in 1969 in Chicago, where, collapsing under the weight of its notoriety and popularity, it shattered into myriad factions. Through brilliant art and they were there dialogue, famed graphic novelist Harvey Pekar, gifted artist Gary Dumm, and renowned historian Paul Buhle illustrate the tumultuous decade that first defined and then was defined by the men and women who gathered under the SDS banner. This book captures the idealism and activism that drove a generation of young Americans to believe that even one person's actions can help transform the world.

25 The Art of Herge, Inventor of Tintin

Goddin, Philippe Hardcover

Brand New 

The first in a three-volume series, The Art of Herge presents a selection of Herge's outstanding, often unpublished, drawings showing the diversity of his work and offering the reader a view of the range of his talent. Georges Remi, better known as Herge, the creator of Tintin & Snowy, was born a century ago. He left us an exceptional legacy, at the center of which was Tintin, but also included much other work besides Tintin's cartoon adventures. From generation to generation the popularity of his creation has carried on and been extended, to such a degree that whatever their age, many readers feel they have grown up with Tintin. This first volume of The Art of Herge covers the years 1907 to 1937, during which the range of Herge's drawing is evident: his childhood and schoolboy sketches, the first published drawings, his burgeoning work as an illustrator and graphic designer, the advertisements, occasional paintings and, of course, the comics for which he became famous. One witnesses his development as a young and successful artist with the promise of further achievements to come. From his childhood onwards, we can judge the range of his talent from the vast number of drawings Herge produced. The prolific output of the master of the clear line included advertisements, comic strips, illustrations, fashion designs and caricatures. In this series, Herge's work is presented in chronological order, with many high-quality reproductions of the art. The artwork is accompanied by concise commentary, allowing us a closer look into the artist's daily routine and output.
