The response to our call for new books at this weekend’s Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest was incredible and overwhelming, with new work by Kim Deitch, Jason Little, Austin English, Mark Alan Stamaty, and MANY MORE. We’re still sorting through it. Consider this only part 1! Bring a full wallet.
debuts THE KIM DEITCH FILES. Holy shit!
The Kim Deitch Files is a limited edition portfolio of the looseleaf “story” pages which serve as Kim’s sketchbook; it’s where he works out the ideas for his comics. included in this folio are selections of the original story pages from many of Kim’s major works (Alias The Cat, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams) as well as many of his other projects (Deitch’s Pictorama, Southern Fried Fugitives), never before seen projects (the aborted Alice’s Adventures Underground) and even a couple pretty jaw dropping life studies. they are exclusively in pencil, many in a fully rendered style that is both insanely gorgeous and (in their way) totally different than what you “expect” from Kim’s art. these pages have rarely been seen, and as individual pieces and as a look into the process of a master cartoonist…this is the real deal, folks.
is debuting this mind-blowing new print by Mark Alan Stamaty, of a spread from his book WHO NEEDS DONUTS?. Gabe Fowler says it’s one of his favorite pieces of all time. Click for a slightly larger version, but you’ll have to see the original for the full impact.
has a new mini called THE GROUND IS SOFT.
This is a stand alone story about a family in a somewhat primitive village and how they deal with the strange customs that they abide by. Told like a puzzle which pieces have been scattered across the table, this is the 6th issue in Chuck Forsman’s Ignatz Award-winning series Snake Oil.
