NYHETSBREV - 2018-01-22

"Representing Julia Wertz’s critically acclaimed first graphic memoir in a new format, with a brand new sketchbook from Wertz, and an introduction by Janeane Garofalo. But don’t worry; we haven’t replaced any of the wrenching and ribald, whiskey-soaked coming-of-age tale. This is Wertz at her best, which is sometimes her worst."

"A timely and disturbing journey that illuminates the human cost of terrorism and deceit.
The Attack opens with Amin Jaafari, an Israeli surgeon of Palestinian origin, trying to save the casualties of a suicide bombing. A day after the deadly attack, an Israeli police officer informs Jaafari that the suicide bomber was his wife, Sihem. Believing her to be on an overnight trip, he completely refuses to accept the accusation. They were leading an ideal life in Tel Aviv, moving among both Arab and Israeli society with ease, or so Jaafari thought. But then he receives a posthumous message from Sihem confirming the worst. Desperate to understand how he missed even the slightest clue, Jaafari leaves the relative security of Israel and enters the Palestinian territories to find the fanatics who recruited her. In search of the truth, he confronts a reality that he had refused to see.
This book was first published as the French novel L'Attentat by Yasmina Khadra in 2005. One year later, L'Attentat was translated into English as The Attack and it garnered international praise: "A fierce rendering of geopolitical tensions and a plea for peace" (The New York Times); "Audaciously conceived, courageously important [and] urgently humane" (The Los Angeles Times). It was translated into more than 20 languages and sold over 600,000 copies.
Then in 2012, the original French book went into graphic form with the release in 2012 of L'Attentat by Loïc Dauvillier and Glen Chaprion. This has now been translated into English by Ivanka Hahnenberger - the book featured here.
The Attack is a poignant tragedy that mixes the intimacy of grief and betrayal with the futility of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It makes no judgment and takes no side. Chapron's masterful illustrations and astute text are wrought with the despair and hope of Jaafari's search. The raw humanity of the story raises more questions than can be answered. Timely and affecting, The Attack is an essential purchase."

"A graphic story of intense current events.
From the pen of former Daily Star (Lebanon) reporter Samya Kullab comes a breathtaking and hard-hitting story of one family's struggle to survive in the face of war, displacement, poverty and relocation. Escape from Syria is a fictionalized account that calls on real-life circumstances and true tales of refugee families to serve as a microcosm of the Syrian uprising and the war and refugee crisis that followed. The story spans six years in the lives of Walid, his wife Dalia, and their two children, Amina and Youssef. Forced to flee from Syria, they become asylum- seekers in Lebanon, and finally resettled refugees in the West. It is a story that has been replayed thousands of times by other families.
When the family home in Aleppo is destroyed by a government-led bomb strike, Walid has no choice but to take his wife and children and flee their war-torn and much loved homeland. They struggle to survive in the wretched refugee camps of Lebanon, and when Youssef becomes fatally ill as a result of the poor hygienic conditions, his father is forced to take great personal risk to save his family.
Walid's daughter, the young Amina, a whip-smart grade-A student, tells the story. As she witnesses firsthand the harsh realities that her family must endure if they are to survive - swindling smugglers, treacherous ocean crossings, and jihadist militias - she is forced to grow up very quickly in order to help her parents and brother.
Kullab's narrative masterfully maps both the collapse and destruction of Syria, and the real-life tragedies faced by its citizens still today. The family's escape from their homeland makes for a harrowing tale, but with their safe arrival in the West it serves as a hopeful endnote to this ongoing worldwide crisis.
Beautiful illustrations by Jackie Roche - whose work on the viral web-comic, Syria's Climate Conflict, was seen prominently in Symboliamag.com, Upworthy.com and Motherjones.com, among others - bring Kullab's words to life in stunning imagery that captures both the horror of war and the dignity of human will."

"Fartsfylt, spennende og kult om en jente som blir mobbet og bestemmer seg for å ta saken i egne hender.
Mamma må reise bort for å jobbe, og Lisa skal bo hos mormoren noen måneder. Men Lisa mistrives forferdelig på den nye skolen. Guttegjengen erter henne for de utstående ørene hennes, og hver kveld sovner Lisa med hendene trykket inn mot ørene for at de kanskje skal slutte å stå sånn ut.
En dag hun som vanlig blir plaget av guttene, rømmer hun inn på biblioteket. Der, nederst i en hylle, ser hun en bok som liksom lyser. Lisa dras mot boka med den merkelige tittelen Håndbok for superhelter. Underlig nok er ikke boka registrert i bibliotekets system, og bibliotekaren hvisker til Lisa at det nok er sånn at boka skal bli med Lisa hjem og bli der. Og i det øyeblikket begynner Lisas ferd mot å bli superhelten Røde Maske.
Lisa kommer tilbake i Håndbok for superhelter. Del 2: Røde maske."

"Night Business is a tale of urban intrigue, savage murder, and street justice from fan favorite Benjamin Marra (The Terror Assaulter). A knife-wielding killer is on the loose, committing extreme acts of violence on exotic dancers. Only one man has a will powerful enough to stop this psychopath: Johnny Timothy. But can Johnny mete out his vengeance before more innocent victims have to die? Born from the crucible of 1980s trash culture and exploitation entertainment and focused like a laser through the prism of Marra’s brain comes his longest graphic novel to date: a nasty brew of revenge, power, and passion, about serial killers, vigilante strippers, and dangerous men raining street justice upon their enemies."

"Nicole Claveloux’s short stories - originally published in the late 1970s and never before collected in English - are among the most beautiful comics ever drawn: whimsical, intoxicating, with the freshness and splendor of dreams. In hallucinatory color or elegant black-and-white, she brings us into lands that are strange but oddly recognizable, filled with murderous grandmothers and lonely city dwellers, bad-tempered vegetables and walls that are surprisingly easy to fall through. In the title story, written with Edith Zha, a new houseplant becomes the first step in an epic journey of self-discovery and a witty fable of modern romance - complete with talking shrubbery, a wised-up genie, and one very depressed bird.
This oversized hardcover NYRC edition, designed and introduced by Daniel Clowes, features new English hand-lettering and multiple paper stocks. It is the perfect opportunity to encounter an unforgettable, unjustly neglected master of French comics.
This NYRC edition is an oversized hardcover and features multiple extra-thick paper stocks, full color, and new English hand-lettering."

AT WAR WITH WAR

5000 YEARS OF CONQUESTS, INVASIONS, AND TERRORIST ATTACKS, AN ILLUSTRATED TIMELINE

"At War with War visualizes humanity's 5,000-year-long state of conflict, chaos, and violence on a continuous timeline. Seventy pages of stark black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings and woodcuts illustrate history's most notorious battles - from 3300 BCE to the present day. Interspersed are contemplations on war from historic thinkers, including excerpts from The Art of War by Sun Tsu, The Complaint of Peace by Desiderius Erasmus, and The State by Randolph Bourne. Searing and sardonic, balancing anger and despair with wit and humanity, these raw illustrations follow in the tradition of great social satirists such as Honoré Daumier, Frans Masereel, Felix Vallotton, and Otto Dix.
Seymour Chwast is a design legend. As co-founder with Milton Glaser of Push Pin Studios, he led a revolution in graphic design in the 1960s and '70s, producing bold, vibrant work that pushed the limits of nearly every visual medium. Now, he turns his pen and sketchpad toward creating a new book on a subject that has been a personal obsession for nearly six decades: the fight against war, humankind's never-ending scourge."

DARE TO DISAPPOINT

GROWING UP IN TURKEY

"Growing up on the Aegean Coast, Özge loved the sea and imagined a life of adventure while her parents and society demanded predictability. Her dad expected Özge, like her sister, to become an engineer. She tried to hear her own voice over his and the religious and militaristic tensions of Turkey and the conflicts between secularism and fundamentalism. Could she be a scuba diver like Jacques Cousteau? A stage actress? Would it be possible to please everyone including herself? In her unpredictable and funny graphic memoir, Özge recounts her story using inventive collages, weaving together images of the sea, politics, science, and friendship."

"Julie Maroh's first book, Blue Is the Warmest Color, was a graphic novel phenomenon; it was a New York Times bestseller, and the controversial film adaptation by French director Abdellatif Kechiche won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Maroh's latest book, Body Music, marks her return to the kind of soft, warm palette and impressionistic sensibility that made her debut book so sensational.
Set in the languid, European-like neighbourhoods of Montreal, Body Music is a beautiful and moving meditation on love and desire as expressed in many different forms - between women, between men, between women and men and gender non-conformists alike, all varying in age and race. In twenty-one separate vignettes, Maroh explores the drama inherent in relationships at different stages: the electricity of initial attraction, the elation of falling in love, the trauma of breaking up, the sweet comfort of a long-standing romance.
Anyone who's ever been in a relationship will see themselves in these intimate stories tinged with raw emotion. Body Music is an exhilarating and passionate graphic novel about what it means to fall in love, and what it means to be alive."
