NYHETSBREV - 2017-01-16
"Rui Tenreiro er tilbake med en utgivelse som framstår som en internasjonal tegneseriebegivenhet. Som i Høytiden fra 2008 hentes inspirasjon både fra japansk og europeisk fortellertradisjon. Historien inkluderer krabbekamper og lidenskapelig kjærlighet, og forteller hvordan et mystisk mønster av et ansikt dukker opp på et krabbeskall. Historien fortelles av den gamle mannen Ozioma til barnebarnet Igwe. Rui Tenreiro har jobbet med Nedzus lykter i flere år, og det er blitt hans grafisk mest helstøpte verk. Her videreutvikles og raffineres det grafiske uttrykket fra hans tidligere utgivelser, og farger og strek underbygger en magiske atmosfære.
Rui Tenreiro (f. 1979) er opprinnelig fra Mosambik og er utdannet som illustratør i Sør Afrika, England og Stockholm.
Han bodde flere år i Oslo, og hans debutserie Trost handlet om en illustratørs møte med Norge. Hans to neste utgivelser var Høytiden (2008) og Museum (2010). Begge disse viser vei mot Nedzus lykter som han har jobbet med fra Stockholm hvor han nå bor."

"Shirley Jackson’s short story The Lottery continues to thrill and unsettle readers nearly seven decades after it was first published. By turns puzzling and harrowing, The Lottery raises troubling questions about conformity, tradition, and the ritualized violence that may haunt even the most bucolic, peaceful village.
This graphic adaptation by Jackson’s grandson Miles Hyman allows readers to experience The Lottery as never before, or to discover it anew. He has crafted an eerie vision of the hamlet where the tale unfolds and the unforgettable ritual its inhabitants set into motion. Hyman’s full-color, meticulously detailed panels create a noirish atmosphere that adds a new dimension of dread to the original story."

Roz Chast  og foreldrene har alltid levd i fornektelse; hvis man aldri tenker på døden, vil den aldri inntreffe.
Dette er hennes biografiske serie om et enebarn som ser på mens foreldre blir godt over nitti og til slutt dør. Chast kombinerer sine tegninger med foto og dokumenter, i denne serieromanen om "det lange farvel".

"Never has the abyss of dread and grief been plumbed to such incandescently hilarious effect."

SETH'S DOMINION

(TEGNESERIE OG DVD)
"When you live in an ornamented world where your home is a museum of 1940s design, you don’t leave the house without a hat and tie, and your wife owns a barber shop - which you designed - it’s hard to imagine letting a documentary about you go to press without constructing an exquisite package for it. In Seth’s Dominion, the National Film Board documentary by filmmaker Luc Chamberland about the acclaimed Canadian cartoonist, Seth has done just that.
Presented here as an innovative double-spined hardcover that opens in two directions, one side opens with a photo essay narrating Seth’s life while the other offers a generous sampling of Seth’s art: comics and sketchbook pages, but also puppetry and New Yorker illustrations. Seth also speaks to the experience of making the documentary through a comics diary, constructed from rubber stamp images.
Between these two halves lies Seth’s Dominion, a masterly portrait that mixes insightful biography with vivid animation in an artful fusion of filmmaking techniques that perfectly captures Seth’s manifold creative universe. From his melancholy reflections on childhood to his descriptions of his creative habits, Seth narrates his own life story enchantingly. With special features including two short animations and a taping of Seth speaking at the Drawn & Quarterly bookstore, Seth’s  Dominion is a triumph.
Luc Chamberland is a Montreal-based animator and director. After graduating from Concordia University, Luc embarked on a nomadic career that eventually landed him in London, where he created animation for several feature films, including Steven Spielberg’s We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story. He was also director of animation on the Dreamworks feature Joseph: King of Dreams. Seth’s Dominion is the first film that Luc has directed and animated for the NFB. "

Sci Fi-noir fra det sydamerikanske serieskaperteamet Carlos Trillo og Eduardo Risso. Dette paret sto også bak fantasyserien Red Moon, men Borderline slekter mer på Trillos siste og glimrende krimnoirserie Chicanos, med en voldelig intrige og harde sorthvitt-tegninger i sterke kontraster. Dystopisk og visuelt heftig. Risso har vunnet Eisner-prisen hele fire ganger for sitt arbeid med 100 Bullets; her med tegninger som viser inspirasjon fra mestere som Frank Miller og Brian Michael Bendis.

"A serial killer haunts the city streets, a stalker of isolated women who leaves a Santa Claus hat at the scene of his crimes. Pavel, a Russian émigré, assists the police investigation as a sketch artist. But Pavel's true calling is as a tattoo artist, and the so-called Bad Santa killings conjure up memories of the nightmarish world in which he learned his craft: a Russian prison camp that shattered his childhood and destroyed his family. Shifting between the living hell of a 1940s Siberian gulag and the crime-ridden chaos of New York City during the 1970s, this graphic novel's stunning artwork provides an atmospheric backdrop to its tale of corruption, murder, and revenge."

"In the tradition of The Arabian Nights, a beautifully illustrated tapestry of folk tales and myths about the secret legacy of female storytellers in an imagined medieval world.
In the Empire of Migdal Bavel, Cherry is married to Jerome, a wicked man who makes a diabolical wager with his friend Manfred: if Manfred can seduce Cherry in one hundred nights, he can have his castle - and Cherry.
But what Jerome doesn't know is that Cherry is in love with her maid Hero.

Those tales are beautifully depicted here, touching on themes of love and betrayal and loyalty and madness."

WE TOLD YOU SO - COMICS AS ART

AN ORAL HISTORY OF FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS
"In 1976, a group of young men and women coalesced around a fledgling magazine and the idea that comics could be art. In 2016, comics intended for an adult readership are reviewed favorably in the New York Times, enjoy panels devoted to them at Book Expo America, and sell in bookstores comparable to prose efforts of similar weight and intent. We Told You So - Comics as Art tells of Fantagraphics Books’ key role in helping build and shape an art movement around a discredited, ignored and fading expression of Americana the way insiders share the saga with one another other: in anecdotal form, in the words of the people who lived it and saw it happen.
Comics historian and critic Tom Spurgeon and Michael Dean assemble an all-star cast of industry figures, critics, cartoonists, art objects, curios and groundbreaking publications to bring you a detailed account of Fantagraphics’ first 40 years. We Told You So is a detailed catalog of the look of a cultural awakening. It’s a story that includes appearances by Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, Harlan Ellison, Jim Shooter, Stan Lee, Daniel Clowes, Frank Miller, Peter Bagge, Jaime Hernandez, Gilbert Hernandez, Dave Sim, Steve Geppi, Todd McFarlane and every other major figure in the arts or business end of modern comics. More than a corporate history or a fond look back, We Told You So - Comics as Art makes the warts and all case for Fantagraphics Books’ position near the heart of the modern reclamation of the comics art form."

KRAZY

GEORGE HERRIMAN - A LIFE IN BLACK AND WHITE
"The creator of the greatest comic strip in history finally gets his due - in an eye-opening biography that lays bare the truth about his art, his heritage, and his life on America’s color line. A native of nineteenth-century New Orleans, George Herriman came of age as an illustrator, journalist, and cartoonist in the boomtown of Los Angeles and the wild metropolis of New York. Appearing in the biggest newspapers of the early twentieth century - including those owned by William Randolph Hearst - Herriman’s Krazy Kat cartoons quickly propelled him to fame. Although fitfully popular with readers of the period, his work has been widely credited with elevating cartoons from daily amusements to anarchic art.
Herriman used his work to explore the human condition, creating a modernist fantasia that was inspired by the landscapes he discovered in his travels - from chaotic urban life to the Beckett - like desert vistas of the Southwest.
Yet underlying his own life - and often emerging from the contours of his very public art - was a very private secret: known as "the Greek" for his swarthy complexion and curly hair, Herriman was actually African American, born to a prominent Creole family that hid its racial identity in the dangerous days of Reconstruction.
Drawing on exhaustive original research into Herriman’s family history, interviews with surviving friends and family, and deep analysis of the artist’s work and surviving written records, Michael Tisserand brings this little-understood figure to vivid life, paying homage to a visionary artist who helped shape modern culture.
