DC COMICS VARIANT COVERS The Complete Visual History
Large, handsome 11" x 14" size. Recommended. By Daniel Wallace. Art by Frank Cho, Adam Hughes, Jim Lee, Alex Ross et al. For the first time ever, explore the complete visual history of DC Comics variant comic book covers...including new, exclusive cover art by Frank Cho. DC cover art is some of the most celebrated in comics, but who can keep up with them all? Now you can explore the world of these alternative works of art, with insight into the design process from leading comic artists and industry experts.

Item Code: DCCOMH
Hard Cover, 11x14, 184pg, Full Color

Highly Recommended. Edited by Tomoko Sato. I thought the entire career of Mucha had been explored in previous books, but I am proved wrong here. With dozens of amazing photographs of the artist and his models, some nude, and preliminary drawings, roughs for paintings, and rare chocolate boxes and jewelry, this offers an intimate new look at the artist. Explore the development of Mucha's career and his achievements as a multifaceted and visionary artist. Six sections highlight Mucha as a commercial artist, a Bohemian; a fine-art painter; a photographer; a mystic; a patriot (i.e. returning to his Czech homeland to create the fabulous Slav Epic murals); and a philosopher. Skira, 2018...More.

Item Code: ALMUCHH
Hard Cover - No Dustjacket, 9x11, 248pg, Partial Color

Closeout Price! With 10 additional 6x9 prints! Our Highest Recommendation. By Thomas Negovan. Special Kickstarter edition with two separate sets of prints, else the same as the softcover. By 1899, Alphonse Mucha had experienced four years as the most recognizable proponent of Art Nouveau graphics and the most celebrated illustrator in Paris. So Mucha insisted upon the release of a deeply personal work, and printed 510 copies of what he for the remainder of his life considered his masterpiece. This Symbolist story features a female deity protecting humankind, sophisticated occult themes and mystical illustrations. Century Guild, 2016...More.

See our website for more Mucha, including two more books of his work, one bargain-priced at $20 and the other a highly recommended volume from Japan for $40.

BABES IN ARMS Women in Comics During The Second World War
By Trina Robbins. Art by Barbara Hall, Jill Elgin, Lily Renee and Fran Hopper. During the Golden Age, publishers offered titles supporting the war effort — presenting fighting men and their feminine counterparts — babes in arms! Comic books during this period featured US servicewomen fighting all of the Axis bad guys and gave several of the most noteworthy women artists of the era opportunities to create action-packed, adventure-filled, four-color stories. Short bios, original art and photos of each artist are followed by 21 complete stories in full color culled from Speed Comics, Green Hornet, Wings, Fight, etc. Hermes, 2017...More.

MATT BAKER The Art of Glamour
Back in stock: The life and career of the finest Good Girl artist of the Golden Age. Our Highest Recommendation. Edited by Jim Amash and Eric Nolen-Weathington. This presents an impressive career cut tragically short. It features a wealth of essays; interviews with Baker's friends, family, and co-workers; and a treasure trove of his finest artwork, including several complete stories, at last giving this wonderfully talented artist his full due. In the early 1940s, Matt Baker became of one the earliest African-American comic book artists. But it wasn't the color of his skin which made him such a significant figure in the history of the medium--it was his innate ability to draw gorgeous, exciting women and handsome, dynamic men in a fluid, graceful style. TwoMorrows, 2012...More.

BETTY & VERONICA By Adam Hughes Volume 1
Recommended. By Adam Hughes. Betty and Veronica are America’s sweethearts - until they turn on each other! Pops’ is being taken over by a huge coffee company and the girls go head-to-head over the issue. Friendships will shatter. Cities will burn. Nails will be broken. And the two girls lead off in the ring boxing! Wonderful art by good-girl master artist, Adam Hughes. A fun, slightly more serious take, especially from the art standpoint, on these two beautiful young ladies. Jughead's here, but Archie's essentially not around. Plus 37 regular and variant covers, plus a previously unreleased Sabrina cover, also by Hughes. Archie, 2017....More.

Collects #11-16, 1959. Highly Recommended. By Vince Alascia, Steve Ditko, Matt Baker et al. Back in the post-EC days of the mid-to-late 1950's and early '60's, there was really only one place to go for your SF fix when you'd exhausted DC's output for that month: Out of this World, which would of course become synonymous with the work of Steve Ditko. Here we have three stories by him in #11 alone, plus more work in #12 and 16, and three gorgeous covers. Backup stories by Paul Reinman, Alascia, Mastroserio and the other regular Charlton artists.

BATMAN By Neal Adams Book One
Collects World's Finest #175-176 and The Brave and the Bold #79-85, 1967-69. Highly Recommended. Beginning in the late 1960s and continuing through the 1970s, Adams' reimagining of "the Batman" revitalized the Caped Crusader for an entire generation of fans, rescuing him from TV-inspired campiness and returning him to his roots as a shadowy urban vigilante.

BATMAN AND SUPERMAN World's Finest The Silver Age Volume 2
Collects World's Finest #95-116, 1958-61. Recommended. By Edmond Hamilton, Bill Finger, et al. Art by Curt Swan and Dick Sprang. They had been fighting crime separately for years, but it wasn't until the historic Superman #76 in 1952 that Superman, the Man of Steel, finally teamed up with the Caped Crusader himself--Batman. That story proved so popular that the team quickly became the main feature in World's Finest Comics--and thus the greatest partnership in comics was born. Their adventures together would feature heroes and villains such as Robin, Batwoman, Lex Luthor, Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlk and more alien threats than might seem possible. DC, 2018...More.

Frequent guest stars are Robin, Lois Lane, Commissioner Gordon and Perry White.

Barbarella may have narrowly averted a galactic war—as only she could—but she's still in need of a null-d regulator. Hitching a ride on a cargo transport seems like a no-brainer, but these great seas in the final frontier are rife with pirates! Plus: someone's about to learn first-hand the dangers of emotional intimacy! This all-new Barbarella story continues with our girl as a sexy galaxy-wide trouble shooter.

THE BATTLE OF CHURUBUSCO American Rebels In The Mexican American War
Introduction by Paddy Maloney, lead singer of The Chieftains. Recommended. By Andrea Ferraris. In 1847, Churubusco was the stronghold of the San Patricios, a motley battalion of soldiers — including some runaway American slaves — who deserted the United States Army for a just, if suicidal, cause, holding out against the expansionist plans of the U.S. and savage U.S. soldiers. In this graphic novel, Andrea Ferraris uses a bold charcoal technique to tell the story of the San Patricios through the eyes of Gaetano Rizzo, a 22-year-old Sicilian immigrant (based on a real soldier of the time).

SPARRING WITH GIL KANE Debating The History and Aesthetics of Comics
Highly Recommended. Art by Gil Kane and others. Introduction by Gary Groth. Preface by Howard Chaykin. Gil Kane drew every major comic book character in his 50-year career — from Spider-Man and the Hulk to Superman and Batman — and conceived and drew independent “graphic novels” long before the term had any meaning to the larger public. He was also a fascinating raconteur and a formidable analyst, critic, and theorist of comics, a medium he loved. Included in this collection are interviews Kane conducted with a wide array of cartoonists: newspaper strip artists such as Hal Foster (Prince Valiant) and Walt Kelly (Pogo); fellow comic book creators such as Harvey Kurtzman; underground cartoonists Robert Crumb and Jack Jackson; and the literary critic Donald Phelps.
