ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINE #44 -- Featuring Walter Baumhofer, written by David Saunders. Our Highest Recommendation. A special issue solely devoted to the spectacular art of Walter Baumhofer, best known as the first and foremost painter of the Doc Savage pulp magazines covers in the 1930s…but also far more.

COMIX BURO PRESING Sketchbook 1 -- By Bill Presing. Signed, limited to 900! Influenced by early comics and video games, Bill Presing became an illustrator and comics creator even before graduating from the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art.

HOROSCOPE HONEY'S Bill Presing 2014 Calendar -- By Bill Presing. Recommended. A delightful calendar by an artist new to us but a Joe Kubert School graduate who is well-known for his character design and storyboard work in the film industry. Currently at Pixar, he has contributed to Cars, UP, Ratatouille and much more. His style reminds us of Bruce Timm...curvy, cute gals with attitude are the subject of this fun pin-up calendar. Sultry, sweet, sexy and other astrological qualities "through a cheesecake retro cartoon lens."

ART OF DISNEY GOLDEN BOOKS -- By Charles Solomon. Highly Recommended. Walt Disney once wisely said, "There is more treasure in books than in all pirates' loot on Treasure Island and at the bottom of the Spanish Main…” And few other children's books are as cherished and collected as these--as though they were doubloons and jewels--the Disney Golden Books.

The history of these books began in 1933, as a remarkable lineup of talent, many of whom were Disney Studio artists--Mary Blair, Alice and Martin Provensen, Gustaf Tenggren, Al Dempster, Retta Scott Worcester, and Bill Peet--created the illustrations for the early Disney Golden Books....More.

The second volume of the Superman Silver Age daily newspaper strips presents the never-before reprinted stories from August 1961 through November 1963.

These are versions that most Superman fans have never seen--taking place on what may be considered a brand new world--Earth-N for Newspapers!" -Dean Mullaney, series editor.

UNCANNY X-MEN OMNIBUS 2 -- By Chris Claremont, Mary Jo Duffy, Scott Edelman, Bob Layton. Art by John Byrne, Dave Cockrum, John Romita and Brent Anderson. Recommended. Claremont, Cockrum and Byrne took the cancelled X-Men and turned it into the all-new, all-different titan that became the most popular and best-selling Marvel title for decades.

MARVEL MASTERWORKS: The X-Men Volume 6 -- By Neal Adams and Roy Thomas, with Arnold Drake, Denny O'Neil, Don Heck, and Werner Roth. Highly Recommended. 1969: The X-Men, Marvel's poorest-selling title, was in dire need of a shot in the arm. Enter Roy Thomas and Neal Adams, and readers witnessed one of the most amazing evolutions in Marvel history! These two talents threw caution to the wind with sensational stories that brought the X-Men in synch with the thriving youth culture of the late '60s. Adams' lavish and dynamic visuals merged with Thomas' challenging and contemporary stories to create a comic-book series that captured the pulse of the times like none other.

THE ADVENTURES OF SWEET GWENDOLINE -- By John Willie. Highly Recommended. Back in Stock. This is the massively revised edition that is virtually unavailable today, since the publisher doesn’t deal with bookstores or Amazon or Diamond. 25 years after the first printing of this amazing book, this tribute to John Alexander Scott Coutts (1902-1962), a.k.a. John Willie, has been expanded to twice the original size! Willie still stands as the finest bondage artist ever and his stories of Sweet Gwen are classics, first published in rarely-seen specialty magazines of the late 1940s and early '50s. Mature Readers.

This was back when Williams was first bursting into the comics scene, making his first appearances in Zap Comix. This is one you need to view in person: there is a huge amount of detail in every section of this image that can not be viewed in the on-line scan. This is from his “metallic” era and this is the nearest thing to gleaming chrome you’ll ever see!...More.

ROBERT WILLIAMS MR BITCHIN DVD -- Recommended. "The best movie about an artist I’ve ever seen!" Ed Ruscha. Robert Williams was an artist in search of a movement— and created one all by himself. A prolific oil painter, whose painstakingly detailed work often featured naked women, death, destruction, booze and clowns, he didn't quite fit the fine art mold—back then. Schooled in the Hot Rod Culture of Ed Big Daddy Roth and Von Dutch, he first emerged as a leader in the Underground Comic revolution along with R. Crumb, contributing regularly to Zap Comix.
