ladies2k17

Since Cacey is running the event I’ve got nothing to add so here’s what’s going on as it’s written on the  FACEBOOK EVENT:

It may have been a few years but Ladies’ Night IS BACK!

If you’re a woman, trans, or non-binary, you are cordially invited to our celebration of all things nerdy, hosted by our very own queen Cacey Crawford!

There will be special sections highlighting our favorite female creators, artists and characters. Come talk comics with all the geek goddesses that grace our great establishment every week. It’s the perfect time to ask like minded ladies for new reading recommendations, or pick up that trade you’ve been eying!

Plus, we’ll have plenty of tasty treats and refreshments, and who doesn’t love that??

This event is entirely LADIES ONLY!! Sit down boys, be humble

G-G-G-G-GUESTS!

anniemokladiesnight

Yo we’re super psyched that  Annie Mok’s unique comics voice has been added to our list of guests coming out to Ladies’ Night 2k17!  Nothing like supporting local comic creators, right?! C’mon out and see what she’ll have with her!

BETHladiesnight

Beth stopped by to drop off some more copies of her books and we locked her in to represent on the 21st! WOO HOO!

 

DID YOU READ THIS ONE?!

Sooooo a month ago or so I made a bold statement:

    “I’m thinking I’m going to try to recommend a sweet book that I’ve read recently that I think maybe at least one of you out there may enjoy…”

ANYWAY I’ve definitely failed at making this an actual weekly thing and at this point, over a month later, it’s barely even a monthly thing. BUT I’m not going to give up totally just yet.

This time I’ll recommend Hard Boiled.

hb2cover-thumb-500x742-583457

Recently Dark Horse Comics released a new edition of Frank Miller and Geoff Darrow’s classic high-octane uber-violent joyride Hard Boiled. This time recolored by Eisner Award winning colorist Dave Stewart. Myself being a huge fan of all things Darrow I couldn’t help but pick it up just to see what his art would look liked colored and printed with 2017 technology vs the original 1992 coloring (by Claude Legris) and printing constraints.

NEW PAGES colored by Dave Stewart

RECOLORED PAGE by Dave Stewart

Now if you’re not familiar with the original story you should think about it kinda like this…Blade Runner meets 80’s Hong Kong action cinema meets Where’s Waldo. In a lot of ways you don’t read a Geoff Darrow comic as much as you just look at it long enough that it starts looking back. Darrow is a madman with detail and I’ve never envied anyone who’s had to decipher his line work to give his pages color.

RECOLORED PAGE by Dave Stewart

The other night, over some beers and with a pal, I went page for page with my copies of this series (yea I’ve got both versions in my collection) to really compare and contrast the work. By the end, and after many beers & “oh look at this” moments, we were split as to which version is the better looking version. Somehow both offered something that the other couldn’t. Stewart’s palette is much closer to his work on Darrow’s current other series, Shaolin Cowboy, but makes tons of room for minutia. While Legris’ at times popped more even though we lose some of that minutia in solid blocks of color (also there’s some just plain ugly stuff too).

Either way I highly recommend adding this nice hardcover edition to your personal collection and getting lost in its’ insanity. It should be available at either BNW location for $19.99.

SCIENCE COMICS DOGS GN
:01 FIRST SECOND
(W/A/CA) Andy Hirsch
Each volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic-dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you’re a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty-year-old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you! In Dogs, we follow an adorable Cocker Jack named Rudy on a exciting trip to the dog park. There he introduces us to to his friends and works through key scientific principles from Gregory Mendel, Charles Darwin, and Dmitir Belyaev to explain dog taxonomy, origin, genetic makeup, and much more!

DRAWN & QUARTERLY
(W/A/CA) R. Sikoryak
Cartoonist R. Sikoryak draws upon the power of comics and satire to frame President Trump and his controversial declarations as the words and actions of the most notable villains and antagonists in comic book history. Reimagining the most famous comic covers, Sikoryak transforms Wonder Woman into Nasty Woman; Tubby Tompkins into Trump; Black Panther into the Black Voter; the Fantastic Four into the Hombres Fantasticos and Trump into Magneto fighting the Ex-Men. In perfect Trumpian fashion, The Unquotable Trump will be a 48-page treasury annual needlessly oversized and garishly colored.
