Comics & Graphic Novels


By Navie. Art by Carole Maurel. "Horizontal Collaboration" is a term used to describe the sexual and romantic relationships that some French women had with members of the occupying German forces during World War II. In this poignant, female-centered graphic novel created by writer/artist duo Carole Maurel and Mademoiselle Navie, the taboo of "sleeping with the enemy" is explored through the story of a passionate, and forbidden, affair. In June 1942, Rose (whose husband is a prisoner of war) intervenes in the detainment of her Jewish friend and then accidentally embarks on a secret relationship with the investigating German officer. There is only one step between heroism and treason, and it's often a dangerous one. Korero Press, 2019....More.

Even though Valerian and Laureline's adventures have come to an end in Book 21, there are many chapters that haven't been told yet.

Recommended. By Thierry Smolderen. Art by Alexandre Clérisse. Tomorrow... is just 121,000 years away! An astonishing and captivating original graphic novel from France. A brain teaser and a space opera immersed in the fluid and aerodynamic imagery of 1950s sci-fi. Fun graphics, offbeat characters, a little sex, drugs and hallucinations, mental telepathy—it's like nothing we've read before. But it includes references to real life sci-fi novels and pulp magazines, which is cool. It's just 1953, but Paul is in telepathic contact with a galactic space warrior and hero from the far, far distant future and thousands of light years away. IDW, 2018....More.

By Erich Maria Remarque. Art by Wayne Vansant. Hailed by many as the greatest war novel of all time and publicly burned by the Nazis for being “degenerate,” Erich Maria Remarque's masterpiece, All Quiet on the Western Front, is an elegant statement on a generation of men destroyed by war. Caught up by a romantic sense of patriotism, Paul Bäumer and his classmates join the fighting in the trenches of the Western Front in World War I. He is soon disenchanted by the constant bombardments and ruthless struggle to survive. Through years in battle, Paul and those he serves with become men defined by the violence around them, desperate to stay as decent as they can while growing more and more distant from the society for which they are fighting.

By Nicholas Gurewitch. Death becomes a patient of a recently-bereaved psychoanalyst. The topic of discussion? His frolicsome child, who has no apparent interest in grim-reaping! Featuring an unfathomable number of lines which have been hand-chiseled into inked clay (aka wood-engraved), this labor of love by Nicholas Gurewitch invokes the morbid humor of his comic strip (The Perry Bible Fellowship) and the spooky silent-film qualities of the late Edward Gorey.

BARNABY Volume 1
Daily Strips, 1942-43. Recommended. By Crockett Johnson. The long-lost comic strip masterpiece by Crockett Johnson, legendary children's book author and creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon, collected in full! Here is Barnaby's talking dog and Fairy Godfather, Mr. O'Malley. Fantasy characters that clearly set the standard for Calvin and his invisible (to everyone but him) pet tiger, Hobbes. Here the fantastic and the surreal meld perfectly into the "modern" life of the young and naive Barnaby. Not matter how fantastic, he accepts every oddity and craziness that comes his way, all just another day in the life... Fantagraphics, 2013....More.

Like Calvin 40 years later, here is 5-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his invisible Fairy Godfather J.J. O'Malley...and their misadventures. The bumbling con-artist and fast-talker O'Malley takes Barnaby on a trip to D.C. to serve his term in Congress. Also, Gus the Ghost and O'Malley follow the Baxters to their seaside cottage, enlisting Barnaby to join them on a treasure hunt. Plus Wall St., ermine hunters, soap salesmen and more! Barnaby has a deft balance of fantasy, timeless humor and elegant cartooning. Fantagraphics, 2014....More.

Daily Strips, 1946-47. Recommended. By Crockett Johnson. In its combination of Crockett Johnson's sly wit and O'Malley's amiable windbaggery, a child's feeling of wonder and an adult's wariness, highly literate jokes and a keen eye for the ridiculous, Barnaby is a classic. Bumbling but endearing, Mr. O'Malley rarely gets his magic to work—even when he consults his Fairy Godfather's Handy Pocket GuideBarnaby expanded our sense of what comics can do. This volume also features essays by comics historians including Coulton Waugh, as well as Johnson biographer Philip Nel. Fantagraphics, 2016....More.

FROM SHADOW TO LIGHT The Life And Art of Mort Meskin
Our Highest Recommendation. By Steven Brower. Part coffee-table art book, part investigative biography, this studies Meskin's career from the Golden Age of Comics to his advertising and fine art done near the end of his life. Hugely influential but still obscure to most fans, Meskin profoundly influenced artists like Jim Steranko, Joe Kubert, Alex Toth, Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby. He shared a studio and some of his best strips with Batman artist Jerry Robinson. He was first to draw Sheena of the Jungle, he created The Vigilante and Johnny Quick, and did brilliant work on both of these DC heroes, as well illustrated here.

Free Augmented Reality Animated App. Highly Recommended. By Skip Brittenham. Art by Jay Anacleto, Brian Heberlin, Doug Sirois. This Young Adult fantasy novel brings fantasy to life with an entirely new technology that I can only relate to Pokeman Go. Using cutting-edge augmented reality technology (a free downloadable app, which I put on my iPhone), fully animated creatures and objects are added to each of 12 color plates, with interactive 3D—moving, talking, growling. It's WAY COOL. Two high schoolers get lost inside the Mystery Forest and come upon Nith, a dangerous alternate universe. As they explore this strange new land, they discover magical powers they didn't know they had! Putnam, 2016....More.

Recommended. By Irving Klaw. Written by Cara Winter. The collaboration between Bettie Page and Irving Klaw produced photographs that are far more than mere pin-ups, embracing fetish themes like bondage, girl fights, spanking, and all the fetish clothing, from seamed stockings to high heels. Here are satisfying large, full page photos, most of them very high quality, crisp and sharp. They have given generations of people something to admire, by showing one strong, unapologetic woman, at home in her curvaceous body, with flashing eyes and a killer smile. PSG, 2017.
