SCREWBALL! The Cartoonists Who Made The Funnies Funny
Bonus: exclusive limited edition 16-page pamphlet of bonus material, signed by Paul Tumey. Highly Recommended. By Paul Tumey. Art by George Herriman et al. Before "screwball" became a movie genre, it was a staple of other forms of American culture, including newspaper comic strips. Screwball comics offered a healthy dose of laughter and perspective. Comics scholar Paul C. Tumey traces the development of screwball as a genre in magazine cartoons and newspaper comics, presenting the lives and work of fifteen cartoonists, with an art-stuffed chapter on each, such as Segar, Goldberg, Holman, Gross, Mager, Swanson and others.

THE ILLUSTRATOR 100 Best from Around The World
For the last ten years, Steven Heller and Julius Wiedemann have traced the latest developments in illustration across the globe--and for all those who thought digital heralded the end of an era, they're here to set the record straight. This book celebrates the sheer quality, diversity, intensity, comedy, vivacity, and exceptionality of the work being created by illustrators right now. From veteran artists like Brad Holland, whose oblique and metaphorical paintings for the New York Times' op-ed section revolutionized illustrative content in the 1970s, to up-and-coming stars like Robin Eisenberg, with her pastel-skinned alien belles cruising in spaceships on indie-rock album covers, the 100 artists in this collection are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, but they represent a compelling snapshot of the styles, techniques, and use of color by artists across the world. We dare you to pick your favorites. Taschen, 2019...More.

GLADYS PARKER A LIFE IN COMICS, A Passion for Fashion Signed
Signed bookplate! Highly Recommended. By Trina Robbins. Art by Gladys Parker. Explores the history behind Mopsy, the 1940s-60s comic strip star, who also was in her own comic book series, and her creator Gladys Parker! This beautiful book will also provide a rarely seen collection of Mopsy stories and many of Parker's earlier strips. Parker was unique in comics. As with Frida Kahlo, it was impossible to tell where her art left off and its creator began. Parker mixed fashion and comics, also creating hand-made clothes for film stars--and the lovely and strong-willed Mopsy was an exact double for Parker herself. Hermes, 2019. Due Dec. ...More.

PRE-CODE CLASSICS TALES OF HORROR Volume 1
Collects Tales of Terror #1, 1951, & Tales of Horror #1-4, 1952-53. Recommended. By Myron Fass, John Fawcette, Ravielli, Hollingsworth et al. Toby Press was a small but respectable comics publisher, which also used the imprint Minoan; they put out one issue of Tales of Terror, then got hit by a cease-and-desist order from E.C., who used that title for their annuals. Toby dropped that and started over with Tales of Horror, which ran thirteen issues. Toby may be the only comics publisher to swipe the urbane and cynical stories of John Collier, rather than relying on Poe, Lovecraft, and the like. "This is Terror-Man" in #1 and torture scenes in #2. PS Artbooks, 2019...More.

THE TWILIGHT MAN Rod Serling and The Birth of Television
By Koren Shadmi. We remember Rod Serling as our sharply dressed, cigarette-smoking tour guide of The Twilight Zone, but the entertainment business once regarded him as the "Angry Young Man" of Television. Before he became the revered master of science fiction, Rod Serling was a just a writer who had to fight to make his voice heard. He vehemently challenged the networks and viewership alike to expand their minds and standards--rejecting notions of censorship, racism and war. But it wasn't until he began to write about real world enemies in the guise of aliens and monsters that people lent their ears. In doing so, he pushed the television industry to the edge of glory, and himself to the edge of sanity. Rod operated in a dimension beyond that of contemporary society, making him both a revolutionary and an outsider. Humanoids, 2019...More.
