Art & Illustration


Almost Gone! Signed! Highly Recommended. Artist and adventurer J.V. Holbrook has traversed and recorded the natural history of an uncharted planet. Thunder Hunters is the unique cross section of his sketches, journal entries, sequential stories, and portraits of inhabitants and the expansive Vermillion Sands region, a world not unlike Moebius or Berni Wrightson might have created! Mark Nelson's brilliantly imaginative creatures are the highlight here, and his stunning use of color. This highly successful Kickstarter project showcases his attention to detail and love of this newly explored alien domain, revealing a never before seen world of myth, culture, landscape and wildlife.

Also see Mark’s 2010 Visual Dialogues, signed & dated: [RB3474. $120].

Highly Recommended. Edited by Ed Hulse. Acknowledging the iconic, but with plenty of room for the rare and unfamiliar, poster art created for several hundred westerns produced from 1903 to 1978. 800 images, many reproduced as full-page, make this the most comprehensive book of western movie poster art ever published, and the definitive history of a genre often underestimated for its impact on American audiences. One of the earliest narrative films, 1903’s The Great Train Robbery, was a western, and before commercial cinema was a decade old the form had proliferated to such an extent that practically every nickelodeon in the country used short-length shoot-’em-ups in their daily programs.

ANY GUN CAN PLAY The Essential Guide to Euro-Westerns
New edition. Highly Recommened. By Kevin Grant. Foreword by Franco Nero. The full, vibrant history of the Euro-Western. The success of Sergio Leone's Man with No Name trilogy in the 60s sparked a gold rush, as a legion of European film-makers, many of them sharing the get-rich-quick mentality of Leone's mercenary anti-heroes, created the wildest Westerns ever made. Cynical and stylish, bloody and baroque, Euro-Westerns replaced straight-shooting sheriffs and courageous cowboys with amoral adventurers, whose murderous methods would shock the heroes of Hollywood Westerns. FAB Press, 2022....More.

Highly Recommended. By Ruth Plumly Thompson. This is the 16th book of Oz, and the 2nd written by Ruth Plumly Thompson. This new hardcover edition of the 1922 book features a new cover and interior illustrations by Eisner nominated artist Sara Richard. On Prince Pompadore's 18th birthday, his cake explodes, revealing a magic scroll, a magic mirror, and a doorknob. The scroll warns the prince that if he doesn't wed a "proper princess" within seven days, his entire kingdom will disappear. He and the kingdom's wise elephant Kabumpo embark on a new adventure to the Emerald City to marry Princess Ozma. But when they finally arrive, they find the princess and her palace...are gone!

Hard Cover, 7x9, 260pg, Partial Color

QUEER VISITORS FROM THE MARVELOUS LAND OF OZ The Complete Comic Strip Saga 1904-1905
Back in Stock. Highly Recommended. Foreword by Eric Shanower. In 1904, to promote his second book, L. Frank Baum and cartoonist Walt McDougall brought his famed characters to a new medium, the comic strip. At this same time, Oz illustrator W.W. Denslow, offered his own Sunday feature, Scarecrow and the Tinman. Now both of these rare cartoon features are collected for the first time, magnificently restored and presented in full Sunday Page size. Rush Service and International shipping would require an additional charge. Sunday Press, 2009....More.

CAPTAIN AMERICA Omnibus Volume 4
Collects Captain America #193-214; Annual #3-4 and more, 1975-76. Recommended. It’s the return of the King! In 1975, Jack "King" Kirby returned to Marvel and his iconic co-creation Captain America. Serving as writer, artist and editor, it was Kirby unleashed! He devised an intricate story line that built month after month toward America’s Bicentennial and Captain America #200. In the "Madbomb" saga, an aristocratic cabal seeks to wrest control of the country by possessing the American people’s minds...and driving them to insane outbreaks of violence! Then, the Falcon is lost in an other-dimensional asylum — that’s run by the inmates! The tale of the Night People and Agron the Unburied One is a tense sci-fi horror thriller. And Kirby tops it all off with "The Swine," an action-packed adventure featuring the debut of Arnim Zola...and the return of the Red Skull. Marvel, 2024. ...More.

Intrigue, Treason and Emperor Hirohito's Fateful Decision to Surrender. Recommended. By Yukinobu Hoshino. The true story of Japan's surrender in World War II and how it nearly didn't happen. In the final days of World War II, Japan lay in ruins and the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had been obliterated. A tense drama unfolds in Tokyo as Japan teeters on the edge of Armageddon — the true story of the day immediately before the surrender, as a group of fanatical army officers attempt to prevent the Emperor from surrendering — an act of high treason.

From a story by Alain Bismut and Abel Ferry. Massive overpopulation strains the Earth’s resources, endangering all of humanity. Their only hope is Eden, a newly discovered distant Earth-like planet.

The dust barely settles from this dust-up before Alley Oop finds new challenges as a palentology professor and an unstoppable football coach!

Atlas Comics Library


ATLAS COMICS LIBRARY Number 2 Venus Volume 2
Collects Venus #10-19, 1950-52. Our Highest Recommendation. In the late 1940s, Marvel Comics predecessors Timely and Atlas Comics published Venus, a lighthearted romance comic about the goddess of love. Never a company to miss a trend, Atlas introduced science fiction and made her a superhero — then made the title a straight-out horror anthology. Today it's one of the most desirable pre-code titles. Here is the swift-changing second half of the 19-issue run — all the very best issues! Future Marvel stars Bill Everett (seven issues) and Werner Roth (three issues) take Venus to heights of four-color weirdness and pre-Code horror ghastliness. Fantagraphics, 2024....More.

THE ATLAS COMICS LIBRARY Volume 1 Adventures in Terror
Collects #1-8, 1950-52. By Gene Colan, Russ Heath, Basil Wolverton, et al. Our Highest Recommendation. The Fantagraphics Atlas Comics Library is the first attempt to publish a carefully curated line of Atlas titles. This first volume includes a treasure trove of stories drawn by many of the most stylistically accomplished artists of the Golden Age including Joe Maneely, George Tuska, Carl Burgos, Mike Sekowsky, and Joe Sinnott—highlights include Russ Heath’s two-part story "The Brain"; Basil Wolverton's classic "Where Monsters Dwell" from issue #7; Gene Colan's moody "House of Horror" in issue #3; and Don Rico’s wild layouts are on display from #4’s "The Torture Room." Fantagraphics, 2023....More.

THE ATLAS Artist Edition Volume 1 Joe Maneely
Our Highest Recommendation. A cornucopia, 256 pages, of Maneely’s finest! Marvel (then called Atlas) classics including pre-code horror (“Haunted!”, “The Raving Maniac,” and the classic “Your Name Is Frankenstein”), space opera (Speed Carter), war (Combat Kelly), Mad-style parodies of Crazy and Riot, cold-war intrigue, the Fu Manchu swipe (Yellow Claw), Westerns (Kid Colt, Black Rider, Ringo Kid, Wyatt Earp, Two-Gun Kid), and Maneely’s pride and joy -- his Arthurian champion, The Black Knight. Fantagraphics, 2023....More.

Item Code: ATLA01H
Hard Cover, 10x13, 256pg, Full Color
$75.00 $67.50

Our Highest Recommendation. Art by Russ Heath, John Severin, Gene Colan, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Syd Shores, Don Heck et al. Edited by Michael J. Vassallo. Fifty hard-hitting stories from Atlas, the company that became Marvel Comics. Each one hand-picked by Vassallo, a comics historian and world-renowned authority on Timely/Atlas. Marvel published more war titles than anyone in the industry, between 1951 and 1960, and were strongly influenced, at their best, by Kurtzman's EC stories. If you think EC and DC were the only publishers doing poignant, powerful and well-drawn war stories, read this and have your head turned around. This is good. Dead Reckoning, 2020....More.

Imperfect Editions


Hurts…Blemished Books…whatever you want to call them, they are bargain priced generally for very minor issues. We take these to shows and customers look at them and ask, what’s the problem? Sometimes I’m even hard put to find the issue; usually a small dent to a corner, or maybe two.

Anyway, our man Harry has been hard at work here catching up and we’ve got this all-new list for you, on top of the ones last week. Click here to see all 92 (as I write this) of our Blemished Books; as mentioned last week, many are down to just one or two copies, so it pays to act quickly if you see something you want.

Collects #1-5, 1964-65. Our Highest Recommendation. Reanimated in all its gruesome glory in a value-priced paperback format, and in its original magazine size, this terrifying tome presents some of the finest work by comics legends Archie Goodwin, Frank Frazetta, Al Williamson, Reed Crandall, Alex Toth, Joe Orlando, Gray Morrow, and more.

Publisher James Warren here recaptured much of the magic of EC Comics using many of the original EC creators as well as artists every bit as good, doing their best work to date. Dark Horse, 2023.

THE WORLD OF GUWEIZ The Art of Gu Zheng Wei Hurt
Highly Recommended. 1 million followers on Instagram! Following on from his first book, Guweiz: The Art of Gu Zheng Wei (2020), the artist now takes us deeper into his world of beautifully painted artwork, which features beautiful girls, often warriors, in manga-inspired dark settings. Guweiz provided the cover artwork for the popular Asian Illustration also from 3dtotal. It contains a special feature on his work. We find him incredibly polished and imaginative, transcending far beyond the usual Manga motifs to bring his work a fine art style very much in the Realism genre of tradition-inspired work. 3dtotal Publishing, 2023. Condition: Bumped corners....More.

An original graphic novel. Writer Billy Tucci, along with artists Maria Laura Sanapo and Edu Menna, delves into the eponymous deep dark secret of the Nazi regime during the Second World War. Through the 1940s, several Nazi concentration camps featured brothels wherein Jewish women were forced to work as prostitutes for soldiers. This rarely discussed, dark tragedy of history remains starkly relevant today. Now, Miss Fury and her team of Black Furies have discovered this cruel phenomenon — and they're going to kick some Nazi ass, in an all-female style mission of revenge. Dynamite, 2022.

JOHN WATERS Pope of Trash Hurt
This accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, the first dedicated solely to Waters' films. Known for pushing the boundaries of any kind of taste, John Waters has created a canon of high-shock-value movies. Featuring misfit muses, tributes to his hometown of Baltimore and themes of fetish, obsession and celebrity culture, his renegade films — including Pink Flamingos (1972), Female Trouble (1974), Desperate Living (1977), Hairspray (1988), Serial Mom (1994) and A Dirty Shame (2004) — are irreverent, laugh-out-loud comedies that lovingly draw inspiration from William Castle, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Russ Meyer, and others.

A History and Guide to Movies About Knights, Pirates, Barbarians, and Vikings. Recommended. By Lawrence Ellsworth. A history and homage to nearly four hundred movies and television shows featuring swashbucklers, knights, pirates, samurai, Vikings, gladiators, outlaw heroes like Zorro and Robin Hood, and anyone else who lives by the blade and solves their problems with the point of a sword. Though swordplay thrives as a mainstay of current pop culture— whether Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings or Star Wars — swashbuckling was if anything even more ubiquitous during Hollywood’s classic period, from its foundations in the Silent Era up through the savage bursts of fantasy films in the '80s.

As usual, these are available individually or discounted for all four. Here are all the previous books, and much more ERB…


Software Upgrades…continued

We are working very hard resolving some of the issues that came along with our recent upgrade to a new version of our inventory software. One big issue was that I was unable to do reordering for seven weeks; I normally closely examine sales every week, or at least every other week, and place reorders to the publishers.

As I was finally working on this yesterday, I could see that several of the new books in our new catalog sold out before I was able to place reorders. I apologize--several key new items are on backorder until our next shipment arrives. Here’s a couple of those items temporarily out of stock:
