PRINCE VALIANT STUDIO EDITION
It's here at last! Our Highest Recommendation. By Hal Foster. Hal Foster is in five artistic Halls of Fame--more than any other illustrator. Fantagraphics' recent reprints of Prince Valiant have received international acclaim, and now they are printing the Holy Grail of comics art: a 160-page collection scanned from Foster's rare, original pages (drawn in black & white, pen and ink) and printed in full color. But also including several hand-colored pages and color syndicate proofs. Includes a beautiful die-cut cover and a bonus original art-size print of the famous "battle on the bridge" scene, 1938. This is an absolutely magnificent book! Fantagraphics, 2017...More.

THE COMPLETE LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE Volume 14
Dailies & Sundays, 1948-50. Recommended. By Harold Gray. What would you do if you found $100 million in currency, gold bullion, and sparkling gems?

America's spunkiest kid, however, fails to heed the advice of the mysterious “witch” named Gypsy Belle, who warns of trouble and danger associated with the treasure. Soon enough, the wayward waif is evading mobsters, murderers, and...government tax collectors! Gray also dramatically responds to the anti-comic-book hysteria, as Annie and other children try to prevent the adults from burning down the library! And that's just ONE of the four stories in the book. LAOC, 2017...More.

THEY DREW AS THEY PLEASED The Hidden Art of Disney's Late Golden Age Volume 3
Highly Recommended. By Didier Ghez. Foreword by Andreas Deja. Walt Disney always envisioned that the studios bearing his name would remain relevant by consistently taking creative risks and doing the unexpected. Heading into the 1940s, he crafted an entirely new division of the studio called the Character Model Department, which focused solely on the details of character development. This showcases four (or six, we're unsure yet) of these early pioneers and features artwork developed by them for the Disney shorts from the 1930s, including many unproduced projects, as well as for Snow White and the Seven DwarfsPinocchio, and some early work for later features such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

His next was Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination--which made him famous. Despite his short life (only 42 years), he left an expansive legacy of illustration and stained-glass artwork.

Stained glass, symbolism, decadence, Celtic mysticism, Art Nouveau, and the Ballets Russes--all these elements claim a place in the the art of Harry Clarke (1887-1931), the Dublin artist now recognized internationally as a bizarre genius of his age.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA A Celebration of 75 Years

SUPERMAN A Celebration of 75 Years
Highly Recommended. By Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Wayne Boring, Curt Swan, Alex Ross et al. When Superman debuted seventy-five years ago, it was not merely the beginning for one character, but for an entire genre. The phrase "super hero" had yet to be coined when Action Comics #1 hit news stands in 1938, but once Superman entered the scene, effortlessly lifting a car above his head on that first iconic cover, he paved the way for each of the hundreds (if not 1000s) of super-powered heroes written since.

By Viktor Kalvachev. The better half of humanity in all shapes, sizes, styles and mediums--cartoony, abstract, surreal, even experimental.

MIRROR BLACK MIRROR Art of Camille Rose Garcia
New work chronicling the prolific and life-changing time period of 2007-2011, when Garcia fled LA and moved to a cabin in the Northern California woods.

Themes include disenchantment with modernity and the problems of becoming too removed from the natural world. Garcia's layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs' cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons!
