Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "Look Out, Bibi's Redlining!"

http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=1172

Mike Flugennock says:

Am I the only one here who saw those fotos of Netanyahu at the UN the other day and wondered "what the hell kind of pointy-haired middle-management dog'n'pony bullshit am I looking at?" Seriously, was the guy smoking crack on the plane to New York, or what?

Oh, and don't forget, folks -- you can't pronounce "Netanyahu" without "yahoo".

--
"Though I could not caution all, I yet may warn a few:
 Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools!"

                                               --grateful dead.

Gordon Harris signing on Saturday!

Gordon Harris will be at our Vienna store on Saturday, signing his new graphic novel Pedestrian.

All the information about the signing is below! We hope to see you there!

We went a little crazy this week, and did two podcasts! Our regular one features all the new releases and a special interview with Raina Telgemeier when she was here for her signings at our stores last weekend! For those of you who missed it, she signed a bunch of extra copies for us of all her books, and she had a pretty interesting interview with us! Check it out in our podcast to the right (her interview starts at about 21:15).

Our report on her signings and a bunch of pictures are up on our webpage too! http://www.bigplanetcomics.com/raina-telgemeier-signing-september-22

We ALSO did a second podcast, all about the Small Press Expo from 2 weekends ago, featuring reviews of some of our favorite comics we found there, and a special interview with long time SPX attendee, Ignatz Award judge, award-winning graphic novelist and podcaster Mike Dawson! So lucky you, kids!

Feel free to forward on our newsletter, and please send us any comments or mailing list requests to vienna@bigplanetcomics.com

Thanks!

Talon #0

by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Guillem March

The mysterious assassins known as Talons from Scott Snyder's Batman run spin-off into a new series! This zero issue gives the backstory of the only Talon to rebel against his masters, The Court of Owls! How are the Talons recruited and trained, and how did one escape?

Happy #1

by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson

Grant Morrison is back with another weird one! A straight forward tale of an ex-cop turned contract killer, until he gets shot during an assassination and starts hallucinating a little blue unicorn named Happy is talking to him! Or is he not hallucinating at all?

The Tower Chronicles 1: GeistHawk SC

 
by Matt Wagner and Simon Bisley
 

Another weird one! Tower is a specialist in handling supernatural problems, like when he is called in to deal with a living ghost and a serial killer vampire! Pulpy in the best '70s comics tradition, with crazy art by Bisley!

Showcase: Amethyst Princess of Gemworld 1 SC

by Dan Mishkin and Ernie Colon
 
Where it all started! The first twelve issues of Amethyst from the 1980s are collected, along with eleven issues of the next series, and appearances in annuals and specials! Amethyst is drawn into the mysterious and dangerous Gemworld where she is destined to be a princess!

National Comics: Rose and Thorn #1

by Tom Taylor and Neil Googe

Another great one-shot comic that we wish would be an ongoing series! Innocent Rose wakes up and can't remember what she did the night before, but everyone at school is talking about what she did, and how she is calling herself Thorn now! Since she's just out of a mental institution, is she cracking up again? And who is leaving her messages on facebook?

Barbara SC

by Osamu Tezuka

Another classic Tezuka story in English for the first time, this is definitely from the weird side of his work! A slightly insane novelist befriends an alcoholic named Barbara who may just turn out to be his muse! Insane jumps in direction and storylines from standalone chapter to chapter, but wildly compelling.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise 3 SC

by Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru
 
At last! The final part of the new Avatar trilogy is here! Aang and Fire Lord Zuko must make a choice, will they work together or will things go in a dark direction?

The Walking Dead 8 HC

by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard
 
If you've been waiting for the next hardcover like me, here it is! The gang makes contact with more of the survivors around DC, and try to integrate into the larger world! But will this succeed or fail? This takes you right up to the beginning of the current storyling with the controversial issue #100! Be warned!

Small Press Expo 2012 videos online

2 panels with Jaime and Clowes, and then a bunch of interviews by Joe Mochove and Rusty Rowley.  


SPX 2012 - Jaime Hernandez: The Love Bungler

 Sep 24, 2012 by SmallPressExpo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-tM-RKuxr0&feature=player_embedded

 

Jaime Hernandez and his brothers launched the alternative comics era with their epoch-defining series Love and Rockets. From 1981 to the present, Hernandez has produced a singular body of work tracing the life of Maggie Chascarillo and her vast network of friends, family, neighbors, rivals and lovers. In recent years, Jaime has, again, broken new ground with brilliant comics novellas that remain accessible to new readers while building upon years of narrative to invest his stories with a profound emotionality. He will discuss his work with artist Frank Santoro.

 

SPX 2012 - Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist

 Sep 27, 2012 by SmallPressExpo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0v-kMyLdC_A&feature=relmfu

 

Daniel Clowes first gained fame with his iconic comic book series Eightball and graphic novel Ghost World, which he co-adapted into a film of the same name. In recent books, including The Death-Ray and Wilson, his unique visual-narrative voice expertly manipulates the position of the reader to get more deeply under the skins of his sharply rendered characters. Recently the subject of a major retrospective exhibit and monograph, Clowes will discuss his work with Alvin Buenaventura, editor of The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist, and scholar Ken Parille.

 

Mochove, Joe and Rusty Rowley.  2012.

Ultimate Comics Ultimates #16

  

One thing the Ultimate Universe is known for is being able to do big things that you would never see in the regular Marvel Universe. We've seen major deaths (with many of them actually sticking) and stories go in places you'd never expect. This is one of those stories. What happens in ULTIMATE COMICS ULTIMATES this week is something we've thought about often but now it's actually going to happen and it won't be a WHAT IF--? story.

Heroclix at Game On! Comics this Saturday, September 29th, at 4 p.m., Infinity Gauntlet! The Final Battle! The Infinity Gauntlet series of events has been building to this, the showdown for Thanos! Buy two boosters at the venue and build a 500 point force, no single figure over 299 points. In the event you have a booster with a 300 point or over figure, you can choose to still use the rest of that booster to build your force, or a "mulligan" booster will be available. Build your force and be ready, who will wield the ultimate power?

 

To compete for Thanos, you must have competed in at least four (4) of the previous Gauntlet events at the venue. There will be prizes for those playing this week who haven't had that chance, and participation prizes for everyone who attends this week!

Congrats to last weeks winners:

 Comic Review

 Talon #0 

 

    talon   

 

 

This coming Wednesday, DC Comics is launching their first-ever series with a brand-new character from The New 52. The book is called Talon and it's spinning out of the pages of Scott Snyder's monumental run on Batman and his Court of Owlsstoryline.

Talon is a renegade named Calvin Rose, the only assassin to escape the clutches of the Court of Owls.

This first zero issue sets him on his path and it's a great read from Scott Snyder, co-writer James T. Tynion IV, and artist Guillem March. It has all the feeling of The Fugitive mixed with a Harry Houdini adventure. And since it's tied in some small way to the Batman mythos (and Snyder).

The thing I love about the things Snyder is involved in is the literary sensibility he brings every issue he works on. He brings something to the table that isn't often seen in comics and I'm really glad he's doing it.
