ADVENTURE TIME #27

finally met their match. but what will happen with it turns out that the match isn't a
match at all? Things are getting crazy in the land of Ooo and it looks like our
heroes might need someone to save them this time around. 

TRANSLUCID #1

WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios
favorites as KILL AUDIO, THE AMORY WARS and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the
superhero trope of "the never-ending battle" and turns it into something you've never seen before.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you want but never thought you'd see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator's moral compass has been slipping, and even a villain can't let thathappen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator's past that he's buried deep in his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and whatpropels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.

IN STORE  16 APRIL 2014


 

The wait is over! Matt Fraction  and Chip Zdarsky's perpetually sold out, fantastically popular adult series SEX CRIMINALS is finally collected in its first volume, so there's no need to gaze longingly at the shelf hoping for another reprint of the issues you've missed. (But weren't all those reprint covers fabulous? Just like the series itself - who knew such a ~naughty~ comic could be so much fun?) Another exciting release is GENESIS, a graphic novella by current Black Widow scribe Nathan Edmondson and newcomer Alison Sampson, which looks fascinating, as well as beautiful. I can't wait to read this! 
Also out this week: JOKER: DEATH OF THE FAMILY in paperback, the last SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN collection before the series finale, THE ART OF MILLARWORLD, DAREDEVIL VOL 7, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN VOL 1, a new edition of Moon and Ba's DAYDRIPPER (if you haven't read it yet, you absolutely should!), and a gorgeous hardback of THE ART OF DISNEY GOLDEN BOOKS.

ART OF DISNEY GOLDEN BOOKS

A nostalgic trip down memory lane of beloved childhood treasures! Walt Disney once wisely said, "There is more treasure in books than in all pirates' loot on Treasure Island and at the bottom of the Spanish Main . . . and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life." No doubt Walt was referring to the intangible wealth of opportunities for learning and imagining inherent in the act of reading, but when one considers the vibrant art and gilded spines of the Disney Golden Books, Walt's pronouncement takes on a parallel meaning. For perhaps no other children's books are as cherished and collected - as though they were doubloons and jewels - than the Disney Golden Books. The Art of the Disney Golden Books celebrates a legacy that has now thrived for more than eighty years and continues to influence new generations of artists and filmmakers. Through interviews with contemporary animators who recall tracing the characters in their childhood Disney Golden Books, paintings by artists who influenced and inspired the Disney Golden Book illustrations, and a generous complement of Golden Book artwork - much of which was thought to have been lost until very recently - the rich tradition of the series is explored in this vibrant volume!

anniversary and for the first time, Millarworld collects all the cover

Kubert, Geof Darrow, Phil Noto, Jock, Dave Johnson, and more!
BOHEMIANS GN
The nineteenth-century countercultures that came to define the bohemian lifestyle spanned both sides of the Atlantic, ranging from Walt Whitman to Josephine Baker, and from Gertrude Stein to Thelonius Monk. Bohemians is the graphic history of this movement and its illustrious figures, recovering the utopian ideas behind millennial communities, and covering the rise of Greenwich Village, the multiracial and radical jazz world, and West Coast and Midwest bohemians, among other scenes.
