2018 Calendars

Daniel Merriam‘s surreal artworks combine a romantic Victorian sensibility with a dreamlike imagination. Merriam (American, b. 1963) grew up in a small village along the coast of Maine and taught himself to paint. He studied mechanical and architectural design and began a career as an architectural illustrator. Unfulfilled after a few years, he gave up commercial art to follow his dream of artistry. He built his skills and portfolio with fantasy-fueled drawings and paintings, including one titled Bubble Street. In 2012 he opened Bubble Street Gallery—an emporium celebrating creativity and the imagination in Sausalito, California—where he and other steampunk-infused artists showcase their work. Merriam's artwork has been exhibited across the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. The twelve colorful images in this calendar provide just a glimpse of the wonderland of Merriam's dreams.

By Roy Thomas. The Marvel Age of Comics 1961–1978 takes you to the heart of this seminal segment in comic history—an age of triumphant character and narrative innovation that reinvented the super hero genre. With hundreds of images and insider insights, the book traces the birth of champions who were at once epic in their powers and adversaries and grounded in a world that readers recognized as close to their own; relatable heroes with the same problems, struggles, and shortcomings as everyone else. By the ‘70s, we see how the House of Ideas also elevated horror, sword and sorcery, and martial arts in its stable of titanic demigods, introducing iconic characters like Man-Thing, Conan, and Shang-Chi and proving that their brand of storytelling could succeed and flourish outside of the capes and tights.

Special Order- takes 3-4 weeks! By Berkeley Breathed. Berkeley Breathed's Bloom County debuted in late 1980 and ran until August 1989.

Artwork from Deadman: Love After Death #1-2 and Deadman: Exorcism #1-2. Recommended. By Mike Baron. The unmistakable art of Kelley Jones on two gothic thrillers with surprisingly adult themes and some nudity!

Written by Mike Baron and first published in 1989 and 1992, starring the same Deadman that Carmine Infantino and Neal Adams first made famous.

WE TOLD YOU SO Comics As Art
An Oral History of Fanatagraphics Books. Recommended. By Michael Dean and Tom Spurgeon. In 1976, a group of young men and women coalesced around a fledgling magazine and the idea that comics could be art. In 2016, comics intended for an adult readership are reviewed favorably in the New York Times, enjoy panels devoted to them at Book Expo America, and sell in bookstores comparable to prose books. This impressive 696-page volume tells of Fantagraphics Books key role in helping build, shape and define an art movement--comic book art. They do it here in the way insiders share stories with one another: in anecdotal form, in the words of the people who lived it and saw it happen. Fantagraphics, 2016...More.

Stunning illustrations from world-renowned woodcut artist Andrew Davidson. I fell in love with this, for both stories and art.

Warehouse find, 1st edition, 1985. Recommended. Edited by Don Shay. The very first book about the making of the cult movie, now a highly collectible little gem. We just turned up a handful of copies, all new except for a bumped corner that occured in shipping. These sell for a small fortune online, starting around $150 for a well-worn copy, and jumping quickly to $250 for one in this condition, and $500 for nicer copies. We've priced these below the market to try and offer a reasonable deal if you've been looking for one. Written by the editor of Cinefex Magazine, with the complete screenplay, shooting script, annotated by the director, producers and writers, illustrated with 200 behind-the-scenes photographs and drawings.

Forgotten Fantasy Masterpieces of Johnny Gruelle. Highly Recommended. Edited by Rick Marschall. If you like the fantastic adventures of Little Nemo, do not miss this--literally Nemo's successor! For many years I've collected Johnny Gruelle's lovely illustrated books. Though he's best known for Raggedy Ann and Andy, I've found his other work far more interesting. But never before had I seen this brilliant newspaper Sunday Page from 1911-17. This REALLY is a forgotten masterpiece, never reprinted before. Mr. Twee Deedle is a magical wood sprite who befriends the strip's two human children. Gruelle depicts a charming, fantastical child's world, filled with light whimsy and outlandish fantasy.
