LES MONDES DE WALLACE WOOD
An exclusive new art book for an exhibit in France. Text in French only. Highly Recommended. Reproducing more than 150 pieces of original art, this oversized hardcover traces Wally Wood's career and the multifaceted work. Prime EC sci-fi stories are just the start: we have adult underground comics, Sally Forth, Cannon, Wizard King, Malice in Wonderland, material from Witzend, rare Topps art (Prince Violet and Ugly Stickers), Fireball XL-5, Dynamo & Tower Comics pages, Marvel Daredevil, his Prince Val try-out page, and pre-pro work from the 1940s, in full color.

The previous Wood exhibit catalog was called Woodwork and was done for an exhibit in Spain. But it was put together by the same editor, Frederic Masanto, who owns Editions Dessee in Paris and does occasional publishing himself. So these nicely complement one another. It's available as a special order item [WOWRH. $59.95] and we have ONE hurt copy left [WOWRHZ. $49.95].

THE WORLD OF DARK CRYSTAL Signed
Signed bookplate! Recommended. By Brian Froud, J.J. Llewellyn. Jim Henson's 1982 film The Dark Crystal introduced the world to the remarkable imagination of concept artist Brian Froud, who designed the film's iconic characters, creatures, and locations. Following the success of the film, Henson and Froud collaborated on this unique book--it showcases the gorgeous conceptual artwork created for the film and delves into the lore that underpins Thra, the magical world at the heart of Henson's story. Oversized, back in print after 15 years, with all the bonus material from the 2003 Collector's Edition. Brian signed some illustrated bookplates for us for the previous edition but we only have a handful left; after they are gone we'll include the unsigned plate with a bonus illustration. Insight, 2019...More.

THE COMPLETE CHESTER GOULD'S DICK TRACY Volume 28
Dailies & Sundays, 1974-76. Recommended. By Chester Gould. In these latter-day Dick Tracy adventures Chester Gould again proves that he was never one to rest on his laurels. The square-jawed detective fights it out with Lispy and the visually grotesque villain appropriately named The Brain. Stories are replete with murder, suicide, gangland execution, dope smuggling, a deadly natural disaster, and not one but two main characters on the verge of death. The singular motive behind it all? Money, plenty of money. All this and the return of retired Chief Brandon in the penultimate volume of Chester Gould's Dick Tracy. Library of American Comics, 2020...More.

THE EARLIEST BRADBURY

This collects every story from this run from 1937-41...everything except his own fanzine, that has been collected elsewhere. Most of this has rarely surfaced. Includes several Hannes Bok illustrations. Experience some of Bradbury's earliest steps on his road to becoming a master fantasy/sci fi writer. Lavishly illustrated, with each story in facsimile direct from the original publication. First Fandom, 2020...More.

VIENNA PORTRAIT OF A CITY
In the Taschen style, a massive coffee table volume. Recommended. By Christian Brandst├Ątter et al. This enormous volume is a treasure trove of photography from the last 175 years, following the evolution of Vienna from imperial capital to modern metropolis. Like a printed walk through time and cityscape, hundreds of carefully curated pictures trace the developments in Vienna's built environment and the cultural and historical trends they reflect, whether the urban Gesamtkunstwerk of the 19th-century Ringstrasse or the experiments of “Red Vienna” in the 1920s, when the city had a social democrat government for the first time. Taschen, 2020...More.

Graphic Novels

 
JACK KIRBY The Epic Life of the King of Comics
I love it! Highly Recommended. By Tom Scioli. Told in Jack Kirby's own words, just as if you'd sat down with him for an afternoon to get his entire life story. But this is a graphic novel, so you also get visuals, including cool retro images of much of his most important work, from his first stories in 1939 to his last in the 1990s. Written and drawn by a groundbreaking Eisner-nominated comics creator. Based on interviews and articles (and fully documented), here are the anecdotes, the humor, the inside story of the comic industry's favorite creator. Jack created or co-created Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Thor, The New Gods...hundreds of heroes and heroines. Ten Speed Press, 2020...More.

PEANUTS DELL ARCHIVE
1957-62. Highly Recommended. By Charles Schulz. In collection for the first time ever! Charles never let his strip out of his hands, so when Dell wanted to do a Peanuts comic book, he took time off from the strip and drew these special covers and stories, unique to the series. For that reason, these have never been included with the widely distributed newspaper strip collections. Published through the 1950s and 60s, the Dell Peanuts comic strips were drawn by Charles M. Schulz with a little help from his friends. These truly classic comics will delight any Peanuts fan, collector and newbie alike. kaboom!, 2018...More.

TIMELY'S GREATEST The Golden Age Sub-Mariner by Bill Everett The Post-War Years Omnibus
Sub-Mariner Comics #21-24, 26-30, 32-42; Namora #1-3 and dozens more stories. Our Highest Recommendation. By Bill Everett. After his service in World War II, Bill Everett returned to his creation without missing a beat. In fact, Everett's art and storytelling were even better. Never before reprinted, his post-war Sub-Mariner and Namora tales are anarchic, energetic and utterly endearing! This volume also features Everett's fan-favorite 1950s Sub-Mariner revival during Marvel's "Atlas Era." Alongside Namora, Princess Fen and intrepid love interest Betty Dean, Namor faces off against the nefarious Prince Byrrah, his own doppelganger, giant crocodiles and Communists aplenty!

For the first time ever, experience every adventure of Prince Namor from his 1939 debut through Bill Everett's February 1942 induction into the armed services. This debut volume celebrates the incomparable adventures of comics' first antihero--some of the finest art and stories to be found in the Golden Age! Bill Everett's Sub-Mariner cut a bold path, defending his undersea kingdom, invading New York City, fighting the Axis powers, and battling both against and alongside the Human Torch! Like his signature character, Everett was an iconoclast ahead of his time. His lush, detailed artwork and engrossing ongoing storylines were unlike anything else of the era! Marvel, 2019...More.

2021 Calendars

 
Here's our first two calendars for next year! Take note, last year's Daniel Merriam was one of our very first ones to sell out—we sold our last copy December 6th. We try to keep titles available through the end of January, but sometimes we can't reorder a popular title.
THE ART OF DANIEL MERRIAM 2021 Calendar
Highly Recommended. Contemporary surrealist Daniel Merriam presents an airy dreamworld of vaguely Victorian characters and architectural wonders. Houses built in trees, oversized old-fashioned bicycles, faces on fish that fly, and cats and dogs that rule a house of their own all co-exist in his world. Merriam's paintings often seem lit from within but incorporate an edgy darkness. Twelve elaborate scenes from Merriam's imagination are reproduced in this calendar.  Last year's calendar was one of our first to sell out, so be aware. Pomegranate, 2020...More.

Plus Nocturnal Slumber, Morning Awakening, Rose, Summer, Winter, Job, and two wonderful Champagne posters from 1899. Alphonse Mucha's romanticized images of women in diaphanous gowns were wildly popular at the end of the nineteenth century.

News and Notes

The Fantastic Paintings of Frank Frazetta

This finally came in Monday and we are just getting the last of our pre-orders out today. We were supposed to get an additional order on the pallet, but it didn't get done in Los Angeles. So we have NO copies to sell right now; we have to wait for the publisher to ship us more from his stock in Texas. That will take 2-3 weeks. The Deluxe First Edition is limited to 1500, but Vanguard can and probably will do a second edition of both this and the hardcover, in October. Meanwhile, reserve your copy now for our restock—and remember, AFTER JULY 24 coming and out of stock items will have to be charged to your card at the time of your order...until we get software changes made to get back to our present system.


Download Catalog

Vanguard is also shipping us restocks of all the other books he's still got in print, including several other deluxe/extra pages copies of the Frazettas: The Sensuous Frazetta [SENFD. $69.95], and Frazetta Sketchbook 1 and 2 [FRASK01D, 02D. $69.95 ea]. See them all here.

 

Website and Software Change July 24

Next week we will do this email one day early, and send it to you on Wednesday evening. I encourage you to place any orders by Thursday midnite. We will still be shipping orders out on Friday, but they will not be confirmed until Monday.

Beginning Monday, we will need all customers to give us their charge card information again, just once, for new orders and for any backorders. Our old system has the cards encrypted so that we cannot merge the numbers to our new system. Once we have your card number on the new system, then we'll have the encrypted number for all future orders.


The Fantastic Fiction of Hannes Bok Signed

The trade edition has been available, but the deluxe is just this week shipping to us. Orders have been quite good for both editions. We love the cover and all the Bok art, too.
