Art Books

Highly Recommended. Dinosaurs, nudes, fantasy creatures, skulls, skeletons, erotica..."a journey into the violent, steaming innards of making art—raw, spontaneous and unfettered—Viscera explores instinct and intuition as the spark of artistic creation, to delight the feral child at our core." This edition contains 70 artworks and includes moderate nudity. Cooper works in the animation industry while moonlighting drawing all manner of lovely creatures. Her work has echoes of Amano, Vess, James Jean and Claire Wendling, but it is uniquely her own. Flesk, 2017...More.

Item Code: JAWV
Soft Cover, 9x12, 64pg, Full Color

Highly Recommended. Drawing on themes of the occult, Familiars explores animals as allegories--such as the witch's familiar. This collection has many more ladies, many of them tastefully nude. Themes are fantasy-like, including combinations of woman and beast. We see a little more Charles Vess here, but still Cooper work reminds us of Claire Wendling and Yoshitaka Amano, as well as the soft, etheral coloring and technique of James Jean. Flesk, 2017...More.

Item Code: JAWF
Soft Cover, 9x12, 64pg, Full Color

Recommended. Flora and Fauna delves into the atmospheric and relational qualities between people, animals, and nature. This title showcases her command of the animal kingdom and creation of imaginative new creatures, as well as a passion for drawing from real subjects. Tigers, elephants, monkeys, birds, goats, bears, and several wonderful elaborate drawings of fantasy females, some clothed and some nude. This edition contains 90 artworks. Cooper reminds us of Claire Wendling and Yoshitaka Amano, as well as the soft, etheral coloring and technique of James Jean. Flesk, 2017...More.

WOMEN OF WONDER Celebrating Women Creators of Fantastic Art
Closeout Price! Our Highest Recommendation. Edited by Cathy Fenner. Introduction by Lauren Panepinto. From the co-editor of Spectrum, a spotlight on women creators of fantastic art (traditionally seen as a largely male domain, though women have always been active participants) from Kewpie creator Rose O'Neill and pulp illustrator Margaret Brundage to Spectrum Grand Masters Diane Dillon and Kinuko Y. Craft. Underwood Books, 2015...More.

FORGET-ME-NOT Claire Wendling
Recommended. Forget-Me-Not is a collection of all-new drawings completed between 2014 and 2016. 162 drawings, plus 16 pages of sketches and roughs. These drawings have never before appeared in print. In addition, Claire has written a heartfelt introduction in English: a direct message to her legions of fans around the world. Forget-Me-Not is the same size and format as Iguana Bay 2.0, but with nearly twice as many pages! Quite a bit of nudity. Fairies, trolls and strangely appealing creatures. Stuart Ng, 2016. Mature Readers...More.

Hard Cover - No Dustjacket, 7x10, 184pg, b&w

Collects #25, 28, 36, 27, 46 and 48, plus more. Recommended. By Marv Wolfman. Art by Gene Colan. Tomb of Dracula by Wolfman, Colan, and Tom Palmer has long been considered one of the best Marvel Comics of the 1970s. Colan's atmospheric artwork was the perfect companion to Wolfman's dark and foreboding stories, creating a classic series. Besides the five complete stories, this features 12 pages of unpublished original pencils from #70-72, plus the pencilled cover of #65, along with another 25 pages of covers, splash pages and story pages from various issues #3 to 70. IDW, 2017...More.

Collects Tomb Of Dracula 1-15, 1972-73; Dracula Lives! 1-4, 1973. Recommended. By Gerry Conway, Archie Goodwin et al. Art by Gene Colan, Neal Adams, Rich Buckler et al. Classic Tomb of Dracula ushered in Marvel's glorious age of horror, while the black-and-white magazine Dracula Lives! delivered stories with real bite -- outside of the comics code. Both featured legendary creators, including Gene Colan in his prime, illustrating the Lord of Vampires! Dracula lives again! But his descendant, Frank Drake, joins vampire hunters including Rachel Van Helsing and Quincy Harker in a bid to return him to his grave! Will they drive a stake through Dracula's heart -- or will that honor fall to Blade? Marvel, 2017...More.

Comic Book Archives & Graphic Novels

Two complete stories. Recommended. By Enrique Fernandez. A captivating tale of love, passion, violence, and humor in the spirit of 1001 Nights. But this blasts the conventional clichés to bits! An amazing graphic work, mixing great character design and storyboard-inspired action with an exciting color palette. Art as fine as anything in the best animated feature films. First we have two young lovers, daring burgler Irvi and beautiful Sian...but Irvi stumbles into a harem, with threats to reveal him to the guards unless he will make love to them so that they might learn to please their future husbands... IDW, 2018. Mature Readers...More.

Collects #0, 19-35 and 100. By Arvid Nelson et al. Art by Leandro Oliveira, Raphael Lanhellas, Vicente Cifuentes et al. John Carter has freed Mars from Issus, the false goddess whose tyranny once ruled the entire planet... but at a great personal cost. Dejah Thoris, his beloved princess, was taken by Matai Shang, a renegade priest determined to avenge the planet's shattered religion. Activating a doomsday device to destroy the fragile Martian atmosphere, Shang flees into the unknown regions of the north. Carter, aided by his son Carthoris and trusted alien pet Woola, must unite the many races of Mars — despite the ages of distrust and open warfare among them -- for the singular purpose of averting Judgment Day!

Highly Recommended. By Al Feldstein, Johnny Craig, Otto Binder et al. Art by Bernard Krigstein. In addition to Master Race, this volume includes The Flying Machine (based on a story by Ray Bradbury). Other stories include: Slave Ship, an unpublished science fiction tale that was only discovered in the decades following EC's demise, The Monster From The Fourth Dimension, a horror/science fiction shocker that has never been reprinted since its original appearance in 1954, and other Krigstein crime, horror, war, and science fiction stories covering the full gamut of EC titles, including Tales From the Crypt, Crime SuspenStories, Shock SuspenStories, Aces High, and Incredible Science Fiction.

Super Powers Vol. 1 #1-5 and Super Powers Vol. 2 #1-6, 1984-86. In 1984, legendary writer/artist Jack Kirby returned to DC to illustrate tales of the Justice League of America in the pages of Super Powers. At last, DC collects the first two Super Powers miniseries in a single collection. These tales pit the Justice League of America--Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkman and more--against the forces of Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips. These stories are the only time in his long career that Kirby would draw the Justice League, elevating these stories to legendary status. DC, 2018...More.

Sub-Mariner #61-72, and Marvel Spotlight #27, 1973-74 and '76. Recommended. By Steve Gerber et al. Art by Bill Everett, Howard Chaykin, Don Heck, Jim Mooney et al. A special treat here, we have Subby's creator Bill Everett drawing his signature strip for his final episode and co-writing three issues with Steve Gerber and Howard Chaykin. Bill was one of the finest artists to come out of the Golden Age, but Subby was nearly his only break-out character amongst a legion of more forgettable heroes (and heroines, like Subby's gal Namora). This volumes completes the Sub-Mariner's original Marvel Age series. Marvel, 2018...More.

Comic Strip Collections

POGO Volume 4 Under the Bamboozle Bush
The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips 1955-56. Highly Recommended. By Walt Kelly. Foreword by Neil Gaiman. In volume 4 (featuring another two years' worth of Pogo strips) we meet one of Walt Kelly's boldest political caricatures. Folks across America had little trouble equating the insidious wildcat Simple J. Malarkey with the ascendant anti-Communist senator, Joseph McCarthy. The subject was sensitive enough that by the following year a Providence, Rhode Island newspaper threatened to drop the strip if Malarkey's face were to appear in it again. Kelly's response? He had Malarkey appear again but put a bag over the character's head for his next appearance. Fantagraphics, 2017...More.

Volume 1: "Through the Wild Blue Wonder," collects 1949 to 1950.

This is all Budd's artwork, not just Cavewoman but also fun takes on Frazetta's Golden Girl, Bat Woman, King Kong, Powergirl, a naked flying witch, Vampirella, and a lovely voluptuous witch.

Limited to 2000 copies. Recommended. By Budd Root. Introduction by Frank Cho. "I'm a huge Budd Root fan from day one and I always wanted a nice hardcover Budd Root art book for a long time. After years of waiting, I decided to put my publisher hat on and just publish it myself." -Frank Cho. And is this a hot book! Page after page of dazzling art, not only wonderful nudes (and almost nudes) of Cavewoman, but specialty pieces, commissions, Universal monsters, convention book covers and posters, and an interview.

Vampirella and “The Witches”

Recommended. By Frank Frazetta, Sanjulian, Bill Hughes et al. An all-new functioning Tarot Card Deck using images of the Warren's original Vampirella Magazine (1969-+) art. Vampirella has thrived for nearly 50 years delivering classic tales of terror in comics, graphic novels, and magazines.  These cover images helped to define the horror comic genre with paintings by Frank Frazetta, Sanjulian, Bill Hughes, Jose Gonzalez, Enrich, Esteban Maroto, and Paul Gulacy along with a host of other legendary contributing artists. Dynamite, 2018...More.

Item Code: VAMTC
3x5, 78 cards, Full Color

1/6 scale. Already very popular. Recommended. Designed by J. Scott Campbell. This action figure is enchanting. Vampirella comes to life in her Phicen seamless body (it's soft) with stainless steel armature, in her one-piece bikini costume. She has three pairs of interchangeable hands, knee-high boots, a removable cape, and more accessories. This looks very impressive and true to J. Scott Campbell's design. Handsomely packaged in a die-cut full color traycase, along with a separate large and impressively heavy cold-cast base, resplendent with skulls and lots of detail, hand-colored. Full one-foot tall. Dynamite, 2017...More.

Originally released 1968. Directed by Luchino Visconti. Produced by Dino De Laurentiis. In the mid-sixties, famed producer Dino De Laurentiis brought together the talents of five celebrated Italian directors for an anthology film. Their brief was simple: to direct an episode in which beautiful actress Silvana Mangano (Bitter Rice, Ludwig) plays a witch. Franco Rosso (The Woman in the Painting) concocts a story of revenge in "The Sicilian's Wife," while Vittorio De Sica (Shoeshine) casts Clint Eastwood as Mangano's estranged husband in "An Evening Like the Others." A stunning homage to Italian comic books. MVD, 2018. Due Jan. ...More.

Highly Recommended. By Mike Mignola and Gary Gianni. Art by Gary Gianni. After many years of talking about Moby Dick (the book and the film), Victorian ghost stories, comics, folklore and history in general, Mike Mignola, Hellboy and Gary Gianni embarked on a stand-alone story, the graphic-novel adventure titled Into the Silent Sea. Hellboy is marooned in the Sargasso Sea and he ends in that misty, inexplicable realm where classic tales of horror usually wind up. The 144-page collection includes revealing commentary regarding how two legendary comic-book creators seamlessly developed this from an idea into a finished work of art. Flesk, 2018. Due Apr. ...More.

Item Code: HELISEH
Hard Cover - No Dustjacket, 10x13, 144pg, Full Color

Signed bookplate! Our Highest Recommendation. By Mike Mignola and Gary Gianni. Brilliant illustrator Gary Gianni (Prince Valiant, George R.R. Martin's A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms) draws a complete-in-itself new Hellboy graphic novel! Hellboy sets sail from the wreckage of a deserted island only to cross paths with a ghost ship. Taken captive by the phantom crew, Hellboy is in the wrong place at the wrong time as a wanna-be witch on board is going to drag up all the dark denizens of hell to do her bidding. Stunning fine-line artwork in the tradition of Wrightson and Dore's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Dark Horse, 2017...More.

Warehouse Find

Warehouse find, 1991. Recommended. Caspar David Friedrich (1774–1840), Germany's greatest Romantic painter, is acclaimed for his hauntingly evocative landscapes—the Baltic shore at twilight, the mountains of the Riesengebirge at dawn, the harbor of his native Stralsund at midnight. The combined loan of nine paintings, ten watercolors, and one drawing by Friedrich from the State Hermitage Museum, Leningrad, and the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, to The Art Institute of Chicago and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, was the first exhibition of Friedrich's work in the United States and a landmark event.

AL RIO TRIBUTE ART BOOK Volume 1 2003-2005 Hurt
Almost Gone! Recommended. Compiled by Terry Maltos. Al Rio was a very prolific artist! The best and most representative images of his work: Marvel, DC and Zenescope characters, Wonder Woman, Dejah Thoris, Spider-Man. Finished works as well as unpublished detailed pencil drawings and fan sketches. Al died unexpectedly in 2012. This Kickstarter campaign was a success and as a result, we can offer this limited-distribution first volume, looking at Al's work from 2003 to 2005. Material in this collection is mature.

News and Notes

Dream of the Butterfly Volume 1

This was in last’s week’s email, before I had a chance to read it. Here’s what I NOW have written about it. I hope you will take a look, It’s very good, and at $12.99, it’s really inexpensive for a full color graphic novel. if you like Japanese director Miyazaki's wonderful films, check this out:

Handsomely drawn, highly detailed, and an extraordinarily unique story--it's just like a Miyazaki film but in a graphic novel, complete with a confused but feisty young heroine! High praise indeed. Young Tutu sneaks out of the orphanage but a huge blizzard comes up and, frozen and lost, she wanders over the mountains into a new valley. And into a bizarre town of talking animals. There winter is eternal and secret police, giant but dumb rabbits, arrest her...for being a human. And it gets a LOT stranger, as she becomes a pawn for every faction in town, including a hidden rebelllion of youngsters, living in the sewers.

Calendars are still selling well for us, as they always do in January. Many are now sold out—most others are just about gone. Happily, we have plenty of one of my favorites, The Art of Virgil Finlay, but another favorite, Kinuko Craft’s Women of Myth and Magic, is practically gone. I just snagged one myself. We still have all the oversized “Vintage” ones: DC, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Sci-Fi.

Gone are Olivia, Gil Elvgren and ALL the pin-up titles, Luis Royo, Hildebrandt’s American Beauties, Farmer’s Daughter, The Hot List, Lingerie…all sold out. So take a look here and see if there’s any one you can’t live without.
