A tale of young love and young lust that never quite manages to lose its innocence (but, despite this, is nevertheless available for sale to adults only).  Told in the form of a comics diary/journal, Clumsy is sub-titled, “A Novel.” I don’t know if I’d go quite that far, but it’s always encouraging to see ambition.

Here’s what some other folks had to say about it:

“An extremely impressive debut, full of all the things that make a story good-- doomed relationships, embarrassing personal details, and the insatiable need to put it all down on paper.  This was one of my favorite books to come out in the past year.”
                                                                          - Chris Ware

“Clumsy is the story of a new relationship and is stunning in its realism and honesty.  The frailty of the drawn line perfectly matches the human frailty portrayed with the story.  It’s just so damn human.  This is my favorite graphic novel ever.  Even if Jeffrey Brown never draws another line again, he has already won a permanent place in my heart.  Still, I want more.”
                                                                          - James Kochalka

Unlikely (Top Shelf)
by Jeffrey Brown
The sophomore follow-up to Jeffrey Brown’s suprise-hit rookie-outing, Clumsy, Unlikely continues mining the same vein with equally winning results.  It's sub-title, "or How I Lost My Virginity," pretty much tells you what it's about. While this makes it -- as a part of the Jeffrey Brown Saga -- a chronological prequel to Clumsy, it shows evidence of artistic advance.  The structure is more thought out, and the pacing is superior to Clumsy. Unlikely is very effective in its communication of the experience it describes.  Jeffrey Brown is certainly moving along nicely in his development of his artistic “voice.” If you like reading autobiographical comics then we can pretty much guarantee you’ll enjoy this.  A lot.  Daniel Clowes has this to say: “Mr. Brown seems to understand perfectly the day-to-day rhythms of the modern ‘young adult’ relationship.  UNLIKELY, like his first book CLUMSY, is pretty much impossible to put down.”

Mini Sulk
Miniature Sulk
by Jeffrey Brown
Well, Mr. Brown is back with 100 little pages of what he does best:  drawing cute comics delving into the frailties and foibles of his friends & family, and, of course, himself.  While reminiscences of his childhood days play an expanded part in this collection, the bulk is devoted to his usual carrying case of concerns:  girls, dating & sex, along with the standard healthy dollop of just plain goofiness.  There is one stand-out exception to the above, and that is the 15-page short story (in a Jeffrey-Brownian sense of the term), "To Wenatchee," which is actually fairly successful and may point in the direction JB's longer work may go after the release this summer of AEIOU, the final volume in his "relationship trilogy" that began  in 2002 with Clumsy and continued with Unlikely.

Tiempos FinalesTiempos Finales: Tripas Sangrientas de los Demonios
by Samuel Hiti
This excellent self-published release has finally made its way to our shelves.  Here's a Xeric prize winner where there's no doubt that the grant committee made the right decision.  Everything falls into place here: layouts, pencils, inks and two-tone colors are all enhanced by fabulous production values.  The work looks as though its informed by equal parts Chester Brown, Dave Cooper, Paul Pope and Hugo Pratt.  Don't let the Spanish title dissuade you:  Despite the presence of Spanish and Latin American themes,the text is almost entirely in English (the book itself is "printed and bound in Minnesota").  Hiti has produced a few comics in the past, but this piece is head and shoulders above what we've seen by him before.  On the spine of this book, it states, "Vol.1." We're looking forward to Vol. 2.  BONUS:  All of our copies include an original signed sketch by Hiti on the title page.

Super Monster by Kevin Huizenga

Please Note:  Our entire stock of Super Monster has finally sold out, but much will be represented in reworked (read: new and improved) versions in Huizenga's new series from Drawn & Quarterly, Or Else.  The first five issues of which are now available and highly recommended.

At the center of Kevin Huizenga’s work there lies evocation.  Every piece of work he has produced works towards the evocation of a moment or  feeling or sensation or thought or idea or, in his best work, all of these together at the same time.

Huizenga’s dominant style is rooted in the clean-line school; something along the lines of Roy Crane via Hergé via Scott McCloud, and with what seems to be more than a passing familiarity with Jaime Hernandez’s work.  But he brings many diverse influences which he both layers over and integrates with this base.  Huizenga is also a highly-skilled observer and recorder of the world around him.  He incorporates pen and ink sketches of still-lifes, landscapes, and, although to a lesser extent, portraits.  In this he is one of the few people working in comics to pick up on what Frank Santoro's work of the 1990s was laying down.  In addition, he is capable of using the computer here and there to achieve and/or enhance specific effects.  He also isn’t afraid to take chances, as he demonstrates in employing the formal techniques of traditional Chinese painting to evoke the lost patrimony of a Chinese baby put up for adoption in SM #9 (reprinted in Or Else #1).


SM #14, more properly titled Gloriana Comics, marked a major breakthrough for Huizenga, and has now been rereleased in an almost identical frormat as Or Else #2.  All the various methods and modes that he has been engaged with through the previous issues finally gel and really come together here.  Any doubts you might have as to whether self-published "mini" comics could ever reach their full potential will be eliminated once and for all once you've read this.  Let's hope that he manages to hold onto the creative advances achieved in the making of this work and continue on from here.  

To learn more, go to:

In addition, Huizenga made an excellent 32 page contribution to Orchid, an anthology of comics adaptations of Victorian horror stories.

And, his more recent work is available in Drawn & Quarterly Showcase #1, Kramers Ergot #5 and Ganges #1.

Technically, this is a zine devoted to video games rather than a comic, but it is published by Epoxy Press (see below, review after next) and each issue does actually contain comics, and therefore-- implicitly, at least-- serves as a bridge between the worlds of comics and video games, and this is definitely a good and necessary thing.

Sadly, #1 & #2 are now out of stock and out of print.

WDBY#2Watching Days Become Years #2
by Jeff LeVine
Our high opinion of Mr. LeVine's work is already on record in our reviews of the first issue of Watching Days Become Years and his self-published It Felt Fine Just to Lose.  His work in WDBY #2 continues to live up to the high standards established by these recent works.  Here, he employs his unique sythnesis of image and text to
bring the reader in for some high resolution close-ups of the minutiae of quotidian consciousness.  Roughly hewn yet with exquisite subtleties enabled in large part by his excellent employment of grey-tone markers, LeVine's drawings consistently manage the difficult, seemingly magical feat of positioning the reader inside of his own head.  Whether looking in or looking out, when you're looking at Levine's images you can't help but feel that you're looking through his eyes.  This slight of hand-on-paper is actually accomplished by the accompanying text, which is such a concentrated embodiment of LeVine's authorial voice that it manages to bypass intellectual digestion and instead is absorbed directly into the reader's bloodstream-of-consciousness whereupon it directly insinuates itself in the perceptual centers, resulting in the internalization of the images with which it is paired.   The work in this second issue is all about the paradox of watching days become years while still finding brief, fleeting moments in which eternity can be held and savored in all its pain and glory.

  Finder 5  Finder 6     

Move over Dave Sim and make way for Carla Speed McNeil & Co.  The Finder comics series-- which is now on its 27th issue-- is surely one of the most impressive contemporary self-published comics series.
With its highly professional artwork -- a strong, even style bearing the mark of Gilbert Hernandez, Joe Sacco and Eric Vincent (remember him?). as well as the aforementioned Mr. Sim-- and its ambitious world building storyline, Finder will fire up your imagination and take it for a ride.  We offer here the first four trade collections, which cover the first 21 issues plus a smattering of various bonus materials.

To learn more (quite a bit more, if you so choose, as there are several issues posted in their entirety if you have the time to read them), go to:

Here are some endorsements from the ranks:

"Finder's A Keeper"
                                      - Donna Barr, writer/artist of The Desert Peach

"Finder is without a doubt the most tragically under-recognized
comic book masterpiece on the market today. There is quite
literally more mind-blowing innovative stuff going on within a
single page of this comic than most creators produce in their
entire careers. The artwork and page layouts are masterful,
and the dialogue is nothing short of brilliant. It is so good I want
to grab the entire industry by the scruff of the neck and say,
 'Look, People! Look!"
                                      - Mark Crilley, Artist/Writer of Akiko on the Planet Smoo

"...a tangled story of family, madness, secrets and visions that
can go within pages from the hallucinatory to the kitchen sink
and remain utterly lucid. And completely fascinating."

all by John Pham
Epoxy Press



Well, there’s one thing for sure about John Pham: this guy knows how to draw; and more than that, from the looks of his work he’s paid close attention to the work of others and picked up on the better and sloughed off the lesser.   The first two issues seem to show evidence of Osamu Tezuka, Keiji Nakazawa, David Mazzucchelli and José Muñoz, and Jordan Crane-- if you can imagine it-- while with the third issue the odd combination of Geoff Darrow and Chris Ware seems to have entered into the mix to the point of becoming dominant. While it is quite possible that this interpretation of the sources-of/influences-on his style is totally off-base, it nonetheless remains less debatable that his work is both in their tradition and league.  He knows how to pace the action and build the emotional charge.

The narratives in the first two issues are very much in an oblique vein, in the classic tradition of a young, powerful talent that’s rarin’ to go but is not quite sure where.  In the third issue, however, the diverse strands of Pham's prodigous imagination begin at last to coalesce, especially in the masterful "Oceanus vs. the Venusian Crayfish" (don't let the title throw you, it's not what you think; or at least, that's only a fraction of the whole) where he manages to weave a multiplicity of points of view with a diverse set of themes into an organic unity that actually works-- as long as you are willing to work with it.  It is an achievement that is frankly astonishing in someone so young.

All three of these comics are well worth the price of admission on the merits of intellectual and aesthetic stimulation alone, and may very well turn out to be savvy long term investments as well.

With work like this already behind him, it's hard to guess where John Pham will go next.  Let's just hope that he manages to stay focused on his inner vision, and paces himself for the road ahead; for with a talent as large as his, that road could be a very long one indeed, and one that could lead us all to new, yet-to-be-explored regions in that greatest of all territitories, the human imagination.

Deviant Funnies #1 & #2
by Ed Piskor
These two issues are chock-a-block with serious old-school humor comics that have their roots in the glory days of EC and the original Mad.  The level of diligence in the rendering and inking evident in these self-published comics is rarely seen at this end of the comic book spectrum.  The content of the pages in Deviant Funnies run the gamut from birth to death -- filling in the space between with sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, and a lot of laffs.  Ed is a Pittsburgh local boy who is doing his all to make good.  He recently handed in the longest story in Harvey Pekar's American Splendor: Our Movie Year; and, he did such a good job that Harvey has asked him to be the sole artist on his next project, due out late in 2006.  Don't miss this chance to get your hands on these two mini-masterworks.

Diary of a Mosquito Abatement ManDiary of a Mosquito Abatement Man: A King-Cat Collection
by John Porcellino
This book, only the second
(the first, Perfect Example, is currently out of print, but is slated to be reprinted by Drawn & Quarterly within the next 12 months) ever collection by DIY legend John Porcellino, exploits the advantages avaliable only to someone with a long  career.  Starting with some pages from some of the earliest issues, the material in Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man spans a full decade, and it shows:  you can witness the evolution of Porcellino's graphic style, from the early rough work all the way through to his highly refined Zen/minimalist style of the present.  And then there's the story itself, full of the wistful resignation to life's exigencies that is the Porcellino trademark.

SnakepitThe Snake Pit Book
by Ben Snakepit
Speaking of punk rock, here is the chunkiest and lunkiest slab of pure punk rock comics that's come our way since... well, ever!  Three full years of daily day-in-the-life strips of the one and only Ben Snakepit.  With the release of this volume he is hereby crowned the current reigning DIY value king, as this book present over 1,000 strips for  -- at the copacetic price -- less than a penny a strip, and that's not even counting the bonus section! 
Seeing as these strips are inspired at least in part by the example of James Kochalka's Sketchbook Diaries it is good to see his endorsement grace the cover.  But even more fitting is the spot-on introduction by Aaron Cometbus, who is clearly Ben Snakepit's spiritual forefather.  There is no better comics portrait of the post-Ramones world than this one.

BluesmanBluesman: Book One
by Rob Vollmar & Pablo G Callejo
The long awaited new graphic novel from the co-creators of  the Eisner-nominated The Castaways is here.  This 72-page work presents a convincing account of a fictional bluesman at the dawn of the blues era.  The creators of this fine piece worked hard to capture this era in pen and ink, and they did a great job.  Callejo's drawing presents a style that is finely crafted, yet still rough around the edges; perfectly complementing his material.  Vollmar has a good ear for dialogue and in Bluesman he successfully avoids the hackneyed contrivances of accent and dialect that have so often spoiled an otherwise good story.  No, here Vollmar relies on the rhythm of the speaker along with selected grammatical tics to lend an authenticity to spoken word, and he manages to pull it off.  Together the stylistic choices serve to bolster the believability of the characters and advance the story, making for a great experience for the reader.  We're looking forward to Book Two.

Redbird Brand Comics & Stories #1
by Dan Zettwoch

Here it is, hot off the press!  Dan Zettwoch has an intuitive grasp of the innate idea of the comic book as an objective realization of the uniquely American character of mind that has been brought into being by the century long free reign of mass production driven market forces.  In Redbird he has consummately constituted his highly idiosyncratic vision.

Rosetta 2:  A Comics Anthology
edited by Ng Suat Tong
For readers of McSweeney's 13 looking to cast a wider net, this might be the ticket; and to lure you in, we're offering a super-low, take-a-chance, introductory-incentive-price on this great 264 page anthology (with 48 pages in full color).  There are some exceptional new works premiering here, including a beautifully rendered mythological fable by Craig Thompson; a very interesting (think early Spiegelman) Matt Madden that is quite probably his most challenging work to date; a Jason Lutes piece that is his first non-Berlin work in quite awhile (and it's quite good); R. Sikoryak's take on the funny pages (which is very, very funny); two short pieces by Paul Pope; a nifty Jason; and a truly amazing breakthrough piece from Michael Kupperman.  In addition to this, there's a great deal of work from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.  All between covers by Peter Kuper and Megan Kelso.  Check it out!
