"Venezia, «La Serenissima», dit sjøfolk, filosofer og trollmenn har valfartet i uminnelige tider … og dit Corto Maltese alltid vender tilbake, tiltrukket av byens gåter og drevet av sin umettelige tørst på eventyr. I en by med tusen mysterier skal han løse gåten som vil vise ham veien til «Salomos kraveben», en skatt skjult i hjertet av en verdslig fabel og ettertraktet av frimurere, mordere og galninger."

"Poppies of Iraq is Brigitte Findakly’s nuanced tender chronicle of her relationship with her homeland Iraq, co- written and drawn by her husband, the acclaimed cartoonist Lewis Trondheim. In spare and elegant detail, they share memories of her middle class childhood touching on cultural practices, the education system, Saddam Hussein’s state control, and her family’s history as Orthodox Christians in the arab world. Poppies of Iraq is intimate and wide-ranging; the story of how one can become separated from one’s homeland and still feel intimately connected yet ultimately estranged.
Signs of an oppressive regime permeate a seemingly normal life: magazines arrive edited by customs; the color red is banned after the execution of General Kassim; Baathist militiamen are publicly hanged and school kids are bussed past them to bear witness. As conditions in Mosul worsen over her childhood, Brigitte’s father is always hopeful that life in Iraq will return to being secular and prosperous. The family eventually feels compelled to move to Paris, however, where Brigitte finds herself not quite belonging to either culture. Trondheim brings to life Findakly’s memories to create a poignant family portrait that covers loss, tragedy, love, and the loneliness of exile."

THE CROSS-EYED MUTT

(THE LOUVRE COLLECTION)

"Fabian is supervisor at the Louvre. He loves his job. He also loves Mathilde. When time comes, she presents him to her family in their vast country house and not without some apprehension, as the Benion clan is a bit special. There's her father, Louis, who heads since 1975 the family furniture company founded in 1947, and two brothers, Maxime and Joseph. They're not bad guys, just rather clumsy and with a decidedly unsubtle sense of humor. The fact that Fabian works in the Louvre is a welcome coincidence, since they just found in the attic a painting by an ancestor in the nineteenth century.
A raucous satirical comedy that asks: Who decides what makes a work of art worthy of being in a major museum?"

GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE

(THE LOUVRE COLLECTION)

"Acclaimed manga artist Jiro Taniguchi provides the latest entry in the Louvre collection of graphic novels. After a group trip to Europe, a
Japanese artist stops in Paris alone, intent on visiting the museums of the capital. But, bedridden in his hotel room with fever, he faces the absolute
solitude of one suffering in a foreign land, deprived of any immediate or familiar recourse. When the fever breaks somewhat, he sets out on his visit
and promptly gets lost in the crowded halls of the Louvre. Very soon, he discovers many unsuspected facets to this world in a museum in a journey
oscillating between feverish hallucination and reality, actually able to speak with famous painters from various periods of history, led to
crossroads between human and personal history by... the Guardians of the Louvre."

"Slowly but surely he takes a promenade through Edo. “Furari” could be translated as ‘aimlessly’, ‘at random’, ‘bend with the wind’ or ‘go with the flow’. But our stroller this time leaves nothing to chance. Jiro Taniguchi returns with this delightful and insightful tale of life in a Japan long forgotten. Inspired by an historical figure, Tadataka Ino (1745 – 1818), Taniguchi invites us to join this unnamed but appealing and picturesque figure as he strolls through the various districts of Edo, the ancient Tokyo, with its thousand little pleasures. Now retired from business he surveys, measures, draws and takes notes whilst giving free rein to his taste for simple poetry and his inexhaustible capacity for wonder.
As he did in The times of Botchan with lead character the writer Soseki, Taniguchi slips easily into the heart and mind of this early cartographer and reveals his world to us in full graphic detail so we may fully perceive and understand."

"Available in English for the first time - the internationally bestselling graphic novel and an Official Selection at France’s prestigious Angoulême Internaional Comics Festival by master illustrator-storyteller Chabouté (Park Bench).
On a tiny lighthouse island far from the rest of the world, a lonely hermit lives out his existence. Every week a supply boat leaves provisions, its occupants never meeting him, never asking the obvious questions: Who are you? Why do you hide? Why do you never leave? What is it like to be so alone?
Years spent on a deserted rock - a lifetime, really - with imagination his sole companion has made the lighthouse keeper something more than alone, something else entirely. For him, what lies beyond the horizon might be...nothing. And so, why not stay put? But one day, as a new boatman starts asking the questions all others have avoided, a chain of events unfolds that will irrevocably upend the hermit’s solitary life....
Filled with stunning and richly executed black-and-white illustrations, Alone is Chabouté’s masterpiece - an unforgettable tale where tenderness, despair, and humor intertwine to flawlessly portray how someone can be an everyman, and every man is someone. "

"In Baking with Kafka, Tom Gauld asks the questions no one else dares ask about civilisation as we know it.
- How do you get published during a skeleton apocalypse?
- What was the secret of Kafka’s lemon drizzle cake?
- And what plot possibilities does the exploding e-cigarette offer modern mystery writers?
A riotous collection of laugh-out-loud cartoons in his signature style, Baking with Kafka reaffirms Gauld’s position as a first-rate cartoonist, creating work infused with a deep understanding of both literary and cartoon history."

"I serieromanen Nya Norrland kastar sig Mats Jonsson handlöst ned i den klyfta mellan stad och landsbygd som allt mer framstår som som en av vår tids avgörande konflikter. När hans familj flyttade till Bollstabruk 1974 hade den ångermanländska sågverksorten 3 600 invånare, full sysselsättning och ett rikt affärsliv längs huvudgatan. Fyrtio år senare går Mats omkring bland förfallna hus i ett samhälle som förlorat hälften av sina invånare, trots att sågverket omsätter en miljard om året och har blivit ett av de största i Europa.
Med vrede och svart humor skildrar Mats Jonsson både Bollstabruk och platsen han flyttat till – Telefonplan i Stockholm, där designbyråer, mäklarkontor och tusentals nya bostadsrätter poppar upp samtidigt som skolbarnen hänvisas till baracker och tvivelaktiga friskolor.
I Nya Norrland fortsätter den skildring av hans eget liv som Mats Jonsson påbörjat i hyllade serieromaner som Mats kamp och Hey Princess, nu med fokus på den utflyttades skuldkänslor över att vara en del av det problem man försöker bekämpa."
