NYHETSBREV - 2018-06-12

"Siden tidenes morgen har mandige menn reist ut i verden for å oppdage eksotiske land og kulturer, med lite annet i sekken enn drømmer og fordommer!
Kjære Sorgenfri skildrer en slik drømmende og fordomsfull eventyrers ekspedisjon inn i et av de siste stort sett ukjente områdene på Norgeskartet, nemlig Nord-Norge!"

"The most complete Gilgamesh in translation - including the new discoveries from tablet V.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is the Ur-epic - the hero's journey, quest, and education - inscribed onto damp clay tablets several millennia before Odysseus or the priest of Ecclesiastes found their voices. Sumerian versions of the epic date back almost 5000 years. It is a Bildungsroman of a bad king learning to become a proper human being and therefore a wise king, and to do so, besides defeating lions and monsters and surviving great physical and emotional suffering, he must face, and answer, the first (and last) great question: mortality.
Translated into English and presented here in its entirety as a graphic novel, this version of The Epic of Gilgamesh is a father/son project by scholar and translator Kent H. Dixon and his son, the comix artist Kevin Dixon, who bring a fresh take on this great work. The reader is slowed down by the artwork and visual jokes and the artist's wry hat-tippings to various masters (Crumb and Gilbert Shelton alongside Schultz and Capp, Popeye and Krazy Kat, Uderzo's Astérix and Hergé's Tintin), and then, once the reading pace has shifted into lower gear, having all these aspects complementarily drawn out, makes for an especially satisfying counterpoint to the low-key, the wise and cynical and morally sophisticated, and sometimes sublimely Olympian humor."

A CONTRACT WITH GOD

AND OTHER TENEMENT STORIES

Amerikanske Will Eisner er kjent som mesteren som skapte den moderne tegneseriekunsten, og A Contract With God har blitt kalt den første tegneserieromanen. Med sitt poetiske språk, sin fleksible bildemessige utforming og sin ambisiøse tematikk skilte A Contract With God seg skarpt fra hovedstrømmen av tegneserier da den første gang kom ut i 1978, og fremdeles er dette verket blant det aller beste tegneseriemediet har å by på. Utgangspunktet i Eisners tegneserieroman er historier og minner fra hans barndom på 1930-tallet i en leiegård i Bronx. I disse omgivelsene utforskes brutaliteten, sårbarheten og omtanken blant mennesker som lever tett innpå hverandre i et fattig storbyområde. Inspirert av tradisjonelle jødiske fortellinger er historiene som utfoldes i A Contract With God både tøffe i kantene, morsomme og triste, dype og umiddelbare. Et høydepunkt både i tegneserienes historie og i fortellerkunsten generelt.

"This gory space Odyssey ends the only way it can, with a final fight that pits our antihero and avatar of destruction against the system that shaped him but couldn’t break him. Johnny Ryan’s filthy, satirical graphic novel series, which has been adapted into animation, was a notable mention in The Best American Comics 2011, has been turned into action figures and skate decks and adapted into multiple languages around the world, finally concludes! This extra long final volume is four years in the making and delivers on every front!"

"Internationally bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger, and graphic artist Eddie Campbell, of such seminal works as From Hell by Alan Moore, collaborate on a wonderfully bizarre collection that celebrates and satirizes love of all kinds. With 16 different stories told through illustrated prose or comic panels, the couple explores the idiosyncratic nature of relationships in a variety of genres from fractured fairy tales to historical fiction to paper dolls. With Niffenegger’s sharp, imaginative prose and Campbell’s diverse comic styles, Bizarre Romance is the debut collection by two of the most important storytellers of our time."

Mignolas okkulte superheltserie er med sitt frodige skurkegalleri utvilsomt en av de bedre. Dette albumet hvor Hellboy kjemper mot Rasputin, opptrekksnazier og Lovecraftianske tentakelmonstre ble filmatisert i 2004 av Guillermo del Toro, mannen bak Pan’s Labyrinth (2006).

"The Hellboy saga begins - with over 300 pages drawn by Mignola! For the first time, Hellboy's complete story is presented in chronological order for the ultimate reading experience.
The story jumps from Hellboy's mysterious World War II origin to his 1994 confrontation with the man who summoned him to earth, and the earliest signs of the plague of frogs. Avoiding his supposed fate as the herald of the end of the world, Hellboy continues with the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, fighting alongside Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and drafting Roger Homunculus into his own ill-fated service with the B.P.R.D. .
This 368-page volume covers Hellboy's adventures from 1994 to 1997, reprinting Seed of Destruction, Wake the Devil, and Wolves of St August, The Chained Coffin, and Almost Colossus, from The Chained Coffin and The Right Hand of Doom. "
