    Baloney A Tale in 3 Symphonic Acts GN (2008) 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Pascal Blanchet. Following White Rapids - named Best Comic of 2007 by The Onion - Pascal Blanchet brings us Baloney. Winds swirl and darkness reigns over a hamlet perched atop a craggy peak. Russian fatalism sets the tone as Blanchet orchestrates the tale of a village butcher, his disabled daughter, and her tutor in their doomed uprising against the swaggering Duke Shostakov, local governor and owner of the only heating company in town. In a graphic novel about love and despair that is also a homage to the music of the 1930s and '40s, double bassists and trombonists lean into the frame, striking up a score that blends vaudeville with Kurt Weill and Russia's great modern composers. Rendered in two-color, red-and-black chiaroscuro, light struggles to emerge from darkness and endurance makes way for heroism, all to no avail. Read Baloney as a reverie composed to the melodies of Prokofiev and Shostakovich - a beautiful conjuring of moods, or a call to arms against the exorbitant utility rates. Softcover, 7-in. x 8 1/2-in., 80 pages, B&W (with Red Color). Cover price $16.95.

    When Beavis and Butt-Head first appeared on MTV more than a decade ago, critics dismissed them as brainless couch potatoes who did nothing but eat nachos and watch TV. Today we know they were ahead of their time. These classic Beavis and Butt-Head volumes, Ensucklopedia, Huh Huh for Hollywood, The Butt-Files, and Chicken Soup for the Butt, are nothing short of a national treasure and represent the boys' finest work. If you buy only one book this year, buy this one. Then, like, you'll only have to buy one book this year. BECAUSE READING SUCKS.

    1st printing. By E. Paul Zehr. Battling bad guys. High-tech hideouts. The gratitude of the masses. Who at some point in their life hasn't dreamed of being a superhero? Impossible, right? Or is it? Possessing no supernatural powers, Batman is the most realistic of all the superheroes. His feats are achieved through rigorous training and mental discipline, and with the aid of fantastic gadgets. Drawing on his training as a neuroscientist, kinesiologist, and martial artist, E. Paul Zehr explores the question: could a mortal ever become Batman? A fun foray of escapism grounded in sound science, Becoming Batman provides the background for attaining the realizable - though extreme - level of human performance that would allow you to be a superhero.

    2009 Edition - 1st printing. Edited by Charles Brooks. Provocative, sometimes controversial, and always clever, the more than 400 cartoons by some 160 cartoonists in this collection present the sharpest political and cultural commentary on the year's major newsworthy events. Congressional politics, the war in Iraq, the Olympics, the brutal presidential campaign season, and the historic presidential election of Barack Obama provided ample fodder for the witty wiles of the country's leading cartoonists. From the energy crisis to the mortgage crisis, these cartoons span the spectrum from liberal to conservative and include contributions from outstanding artists, including the recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Headliner Award, and the Herblock Prize. As in any election year, the presidential hopefuls found themselves the objects of the cartoonists' slings and barbs, and this collection exceptionally highlights the ups and downs of each candidate's campaign, from Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin to John McCain, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama. Pelican has presented this compilation of the country's most outstanding editorial cartoons since 1972. Cleverly conceived and exceptionally executed, the pieces in this collection present a panorama of exceptional pictorial digs and gibes inked by the year's finest editorial cartoonists. Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 208 pages, B&W. Cover price $14.95.

    Big Skinny How I Changed My Fattitude GN (2008) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Story and art by Carol Lay. For most of her life Carol Lay tried unsuccessfully to lose weight. She tried diet pills, low carb and food combination diets, hypnosis, and Weight Watchers, but never managed to keep the weight off for more than a few months. But five years ago something clicked - Carol reached her goal weight of 125 pounds and has maintained it ever since. The California cartoonist shows how she lost weight by exercising and counting calories, conveying information, encouragement, and experience through poignant, humorous, and imaginative stories. She's been there, and she'll tell you and show you what it was like - and she'll give you the tools and inspiration so you can do it, too. The fun part is, it's all in full-color comic form - sugarcoating that doesn't add a single calorie! Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 10 1/2-in., 200 pages, full color. Cover price $18.00.
