Highly Recommended. By John Walsh. Known for his iconic stop-motion creatures, Ray Harryhausen was at the forefront of Hollywood special effects for much of the 20th century. His films include One Million Years B.C., Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts, among others. But for every film that reaches the big screen, half a dozen projects are never realized. This explores Harryhausen's unrealized films, including unused ideas, projects he turned down and scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor. Never-been-seen-before artwork, sketches, photos and test footage from the Harryhausen Foundation archives. Titan, 2019...More.

HARRYHAUSEN The Movie Posters
Highly Recommended. By Richard Holliss. Foreword by John Landis. ALL the posters from all of Ray's movies, from 1949's Mighty Joe Young to Clash of the Titans in 1981. There has never been a book published devoted solely to the promotional art associated with the films themselves. Featuring posters from all over the world, and you'll be jazzed to see new renditions of so many of his classic works, created by artists in Japan, Italy, England, Germany etc. Plus commentary from The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation, this is an essential for any Harryhausen fan. Oversized, gold binding and full color jacket. Titan, 2018...More.

Graphic Novels

Our Highest Recommendation. By Fabien Nury. Art by Sylvain Vallée. An international best seller, winner of four top French awards, based on a true story. For some, he was a villain. For many others, a hero. The life of Joseph Joanovici, a Romanian Jew, his parents murdered in a pogram, who escaped to France in the 1920s and eventually became one of the richest men in Europe. He was a scrap-metal magnate..and far more. Ruthlessly building his business, selling to but also shafting the Nazis in occupied France. Buying the loyalty of criminals, police and Nazis alike...all the while protecting his family and workers. Dead Reckoning, 2019...More.

A. EINSTEIN The Poetry of Real
By Manuel Iglesias. Art by Marwan Kahil. At first a simple employee of the Swiss Patent Office in Bern, but also an aspiring young science student, young Einstein began a series of scientific articles that questioned everything previously understood in the world of physics. His theory, summed up by the formula E = mc2, opened to humanity the doors of the power of the atom. A legendary genius, but also a great humanist, Einstein lived through the first half of the 20th century, with all its horrors and contradictions that being Jewish during the Nazi reign would entail. First published in France. NBM, 2019...More.

Many of today's finest graphic novels are coming from France, newly translated for the U.S. Here is our full selection, many receiving my Highest Recommendation.

Recommended. By Brian Azzarello. Art by Lee Bermejo. With no memory of the events of the previous night, Batman is going to need some help. So who better to set him straight than John Constantine? The problem with that is as much as John loves a good mystery, he loves messing with people's heads even more. So with John's "help," the pair will delve into the sordid underbelly of Gotham as they race toward the mind-blowing truth of who murdered The Joker. And what is beautiful Zatanna's role in this? And the art here, oh man, is it great, and grim, and seductive. Dark and captivating. DC Black Label, 2019...More.

Starting in the revolutionary year of 1848, the Pre-Raphaelites set out to return a lost vibrancy to British art.
