Book 3, Conclusion. Recommended. By Frédéric Richaud & Patrick Rambaud. Art by Ivan Gil. Napoleon is furious. It appears the battle can no longer be won. The French cavalry is so exhausted it can t even gallop when charging. Ammunition is running out, while losses mount horrifically both in men and in irreplaceable officers.

Coming soon from the same creators is Berezina Books 1-3. It takes place after The Battle. It’s the story of Napoleon and his army invading Moscow, and walking into a ill-fated venture that proved to the world that Napoleon was not invincible. To be announced.

TOYS 100 Years of All-American Toy Ads
Massive 528 pages in full color. Recommended. By Jim Heimann and Steven Heller. Decade by decade, eight chapters carry us from 1900 to the 1990s, with wonderful ads for all the best toys. All the favorite characters are here, from Flash Gordon, and Superman watches, to James Bond and Action Heroes. In the world of toy production, the multi-million dollar industry took the advertising of its product seriously, and toy manufacturers inundated customers with their latest product via trade journals. Frisbees, board games, baseball mitts, Hula-Hoops, air rifles, video games, dolls, and miniature trains were all served up to generations of children, cementing forever the memories of playtime.

You also might like Great Crump Presents: The Art of Rolly Crump [GREACR. $30]. Only 3 copies left.

For the past 40 years, acclaimed graphic novelist Jaime Hernandez has been creating a Love and Rockets-adjacent world — set in the heyday of 1960s and '70s women's wrestling — with an entirely separate cast of characters who have aged and evolved: the beautiful and brutal Bettie Rey, the I.F.W. Pacific Women's Champion — a.k.a. Golden Girl — as well as former champions Pantera Negra, Miss Kitty Perez, and many more. This best-of book spotlights the women who are often ignored in pro wrestling in 125 full color illustrations: pin-ups, action shots, fake wrestling magazine covers, all presented in a large paperback format that echoes the lucha libre magazines of the 1960s. Hernandez also discusses the work in an interview with fellow cartoonist Katie Skelly. Fantagraphics, 2021....More.

MATT BAKER The Art of Glamour
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 one of 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.

$39.95 $34.95
This is such a good book, when I saw it was still available, I had to bring it back in for another go. Any fan of good-girl art and beautiful comics illustration should have this book. Baker’s romance books for St. John are some of the fastest rising vintage comics today. And then there’s his The Phantom Lady! Baker is also one of the artists examined in Invisible Men, which I cannot recommend enough:

Read the riveting stories of Black artists who drew—mostly covertly behind the scenes—superhero, horror, and romance comics in the early years of the industry. An in-depth, highly original look at each of these important illustrators, offering intimate details of their life and work like never done before. This is a gem of a book, put together by the incredibly painstaking researcher who's offering all comic fans new ground to be enjoyed. Yoe Books. 2020....More.

Highly Recommended. Includes several complete stories, as well as an outstanding sampling of Big John Buscema’s classic stories, covers, and pages from the mid 1960s to the late ‘70s. Viewing these pages, it’s easy to see why Buscema has been called the Michelangelo of comics.

WILD MINDS The Artist and Rivalries that Inspired the Golden Age of Animation Hurt
Recommended. By Reid Mitenbuler. In 1911, famed cartoonist Winsor McCay debuted one of the first animated cartoons, based on his sophisticated newspaper strip “Little Nemo in Slumberland,” itself inspired by Freud’s recent research on dreams. McCay unleashed an art form and the creative energy of artists from Otto Messmer and Max Fleischer to Walt Disney and Warner Bros.' Chuck Jones. Their origin stories, rivalries, and sheer genius, were as colorful and subversive as their creations — from Felix the Cat to Bugs Bunny to feature films such as Fantasia — which became an integral part and reflection of American culture over the next five decades.

News & Notes


Summer Sale Part 2

This emailed out on Tuesday, June 29. Part one was emailed on June 22, click here to see it on our blog. A handful of items have sold out, but we still have 96 items, most newly discounted and in VERY short supply. Click here to see all the items on our site.


Last weekend, June 26-27, we had some downtime on our website. If you tried to order and could not, rest assured all was up and running again after a short delay.

On that note — and a separate issue — with the fire season coming upon us, our electricity provider, PG&E, may once again be shutting down the grid when our area is subject to high winds here, in order to prevent wildfires.

This happened several times last summer and fall. We mostly were able to work around it without much disruption. But it did shut us down for two full days, with only a phone recording to let you know if you tried to call. Happily our website is always up, it is served from a separate location with a powerful back up system. We update our phone message if we have such a situation where you can’t call us during working hours.
