Arthur Adams

MARVEL UNIVERSE By Arthur Adams Omnibus
Longshot, X-Men, Fantastic Four 1980s-90 and much more. Highly Recommended. By Chris Claremont et al. Like all great comic book artists, Arthur Adams earned his way in through long, hard work, by hitting the pavement with his portfolio in hand. But it didn't seem that way. Arthur Adams seemed to burst out of the clear blue sky with an avalanche of unbelievable artwork. Energetic, richly detailed, full of character and just plain fun, his art merged East and West, bringing manga influences to American readers and influencing a generation of future artists. This Omnibus collects his complete Marvel work from the 1980s through the early 1990s in one volume.From Longshot to the X-Men to the New Fantastic Four, from covers galore to pinups, posters, trading cards -- not to mention a huge trove of pencils and original art-- this is your be-all, end-all Arthur Adams Omnibus! Marvel, 2023. ...More

A couple corrections since we first advertised The Art of Arthur Adams. See the descriptions above with details on the signed bookplate and the edition size. Publisher John Fleskes will be hand-delivering these to us the week of December 11. It’s been delayed reaching us because this may well be his most successful Kickstarter program ever. John and his crew had over 4000 copies to pack and ship. Half of our allotment of hardcovers is now spoken for. This edition has only been made available in the Kickstarter campaign, in a one-shot offering from Diamond Comics, to just a couple small retailers…and ourselves. It is now OUT OF PRINT.
Good news: we include a signed bookplate with the first 75 copies sold of the softcover edition.

New Sketchbook

Signed. Highly Recommended! A thoughtfully curated collection of sweet and sexy drawings that readers of his titles have been dreaming about for almost thirty years. This book is filled with both fan favorites and brand new black and white images of Terry's beloved characters in their most tender and raucous moments, with even a little full nudity. Lots of pin-up shots and the occasional steamy comics page. Get a behind-the-scenes look at Terry's creative process with personal commentary throughout. Starring Francine and Katchoo from Strangers In Paradise as well as the expanded cast of the Terryverse. Abstract Studios, 2023. Mature Readers....More

Graphic Novels & Archives

Highly Recommended. Title page in silver ink and 12 pages in full color! A lengthy new adaptation of the only H.P. Lovecraft story published as a book during his lifetime, by modern horror master Gou Tanabe. We're very impressed with the dark tonal art (this is not typical manga pen and ink)'s wonderfully moody and rich and creepy. In the winter of 1927-28, the isolated coastal settlement of Innsmouth, Massachusetts was assaulted by U.S. government agents-- its waterfront burned and dynamited, its people taken away to internment camps.Yet that was neither the beginning nor the end of the horror uncovered by a young antiquarian who traveled to Innsmouth in search of rumors from the town's dead past, only to find them still very much alive...and find truths lying under water deeper and colder than any earthly grave! Dark Horse, 2023....More

Highly Recommended. By H. P. Lovecraft. Art by François Baranger. A new release in this acclaimed French series, with more stunning epic paintings in a large-sized hardcover, matching the previous volumes, Cthulhu and At the Mountains of Madness. In Dunwich, a remote village in Massachusetts, lost in the depths of an inhospitable countryside with dark valleys invaded by brambles, the old stories of witches are still alive and strange subterranean noises resound at times under the hills surmounted by mysterious circles of stones.

Art by Frank Frazetta, Wally Wood, Reed Crandall, Jack Kamen, Jack Davis, Berni Krigstein, George Evans et al. 24 great stories from EC's shock-ending title -- and also a showcase for cutting-edge stories of bigotry and social issues untouched in any other comic! Digitally recolored, using Marie Severin's original palette as a guide. Includes Frazetta's only solo EC story, "Squeeze Play" and "You, Murderer" by Krigstein.

Betty Boop, Art Books & More

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF BETTY BOOP The 100-Year History of an Animated Icon
Highly Recommended. By Peter Benjaminson. The first biography of a major American cartoon icon! Betty Boop's creation and incredibly active romantic and family life as revealed in her numerous comic strips, comic books, cartoons, and movies since 1930. Whether spreading joy during the Depression, thwarting Hitler, running for president, traveling to hell and bettering Satan himself, or flouting sexual mores, Betty has always been a true American original, embodying and commenting on the culture and attitudes of her time for nearly a century. Well illustrated. Applause, 2023....More

JOURNEY The Art of Carles Dalmau
Oversized full color hardcover. Import. Highly Recommended. Carles Dalmau has become in a short time one of the most popular illustrators in the world. With his full cartoon style of details, it has conquered developers and the general public, becoming part of many projects in the world of video games. With this art book, in a bilingual edition (Spanish and English) so that all his followers can know his secrets, Carles what makes his illustrations the way they are, how his style has been formed, what his references are, and what mysteries hides the world he has created. We like his humor, his very imaginative work, his appealing female characters, even his color palette. Published in Spain, our stock may be limited. Norma Editorial, 2022....More

SATANIC SHADOWS Depictions of Hell and the Devil In Classic Cinema 1896-1936
Recommended. 100 reproductions; occasional nudity. A plethora of wild, bizarre and shocking scene of devils, nude witches, hell...none of which we've ever seen before! Featured in many early films was the singular figure of Satan, the Devil incarnate. From Goethe's Faust to Dante's Inferno, classic art and literature were the well whence sprang the first cinematic depictions of the Devil, his deeds and his dwelling-place. These feverish imaginings led to more elaborate and complex films which vividly explored the terrors of Satan's relentless war against humanity. Rare films from the U.S., France and Italy, from Georges Méliès' diabolic trick-film "Le Manoir Du Diable," shot in 1896, to such mysterious silent works as "Witchcraft Through The Ages," "Faust" and "Birth Of The Anti-Christ," and beyond to the burgeoning sound era.

Here’s more of Satan and Hell in art.

PANDEMONIUM A Visual History of Demonology
Recommended. By Ed Simon. As enigmatic as their infernal leader, demons have skulked and slithered through history, appearing in scripture, literature and philosophy for millennia. Traditionally they were supposed to be fallen angels who fell in with Lucifer...and they have an impact on our understanding of what it is to be human. Author Ed Simon introduces readers to not just Asmodeus, Baal, and Moloch, but to the strange personages who've claimed secret knowledge of such beings. Lushly illustrated, diabolically fascinating, and fiendishly unsettling. Occasional nudity. Cernunnos, 2022. Mature Readers. ...More

THE ART OF RON LESSER Volume 1 Deadly Dames and Sexy Sirens Hardcover
Highly Recommended. By Robert Deis, Bill Cunningham and J. Kingston Pierce. In the late 1950s, while studying with the legendary art teacher Frank J. Reilly at the Art Students League in New York City, Ron Lesser embarked on a long career as one of America's top illustration artists. Over the next four decades, his artwork was used for thousands of paperback book covers, movie posters, magazines, and advertisements. The focus of this volume, first in a series, is on the first leg of his career -- paperback covers, movie posters, magazines, and ads between 1959 and 1979 that featured images of "dangerous dames," "sexy sirens," and other beautiful women.

George Gross is one of the best known of the pulp cover artists -- here we are introduced to his men's adventure magazine covers and art of the '50s and '60s, and paperback covers from the '40s through the '80s. He was a mentor and friend to iconic illustrator Mort Künstler. Gross's artwork helped establish a visual vocabulary for action/adventure and hard-boiled fiction. His imagery continues to inspire and influence, from action paperbacks to the Pulp Fiction movie poster. New Texture, 2022....More

BILL WARD The Fantagraphics Studio Edition
Introduction burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese. Recommended. Bill Ward's glamour girls were the staples of countless men's and humor magazines, where they shared the pages with cult models like Bettie Page, Tina Louise, and Julie Newmar, and cartoons by fellow "good girl" artists such as Archie's Dan Decarlo and Playboy's Jack Cole. Imagine if you will, an innocent but stunning young woman boasting wildly exaggeratedly Barbie-like proportions poured into a wisp of lingerie or clingy cocktail dress and adorned in diamond necklaces and opera-length gloves, all perched on top of a pair of dangerously high stiletto heels, and you've got the recipe for the quintessential Bill Ward glamour girl.

This collection is the first ever publication of Johnson's work and includes: Wally's Gang, his 50-year magnum opus chronicling the humorous, cliff-hanging adventures of a group of bachelor friends; The Bowser Boys, a seamy, darkly slapstick depiction of bohemian street life that could be considered the first underground comic series; and Juke Boys, absurd, graphic experimentation. When Frank Johnson, an itinerant musician and shipping clerk, died in 1979, he left behind a startling discovery: more than 2,300 notebook pages of comics and 131 unbound drawings, among them a massive, continuous story line beginning in the earliest surviving notebook dated 1928 -- before the existence of comic books...
