    172,95 kr.

    For the first time, the final issues of the original run of the Vietnam Journal series, are collected. This volume contains the last four issues (#13-#16) of the Apple Comic regular series and sets the stage for the isolated stories that continue Scott 'Journal' Neithammer's passage into the jungles of Vietnam as well as into the psyche of the American G.I.s. Heartily acclaimed, Vietnam Journal has proven as important and relevant now as when it was first released, perhaps more so, because although Vietnam had it's own flavors and peculiarities, war on the front lines is all too similar for those for spearhead the front. "A powerful collection of stories and history of the Vietnam War, created by a veteran of both the war and of war comics" - Douglas P. Dave, School Library Journal "...hits home...Lomax should be commended hardheartedly." - David Peattie, Amazing Heroes

    In the sweltering summer of 1963, at the height of Cold War paranoia, CIA agent Robert "Bob" Maheu is sent to Cuba on a suicide mission: to humiliate Fidel Castro during a live television broadcast by dosing the dictator with LSD and making his beard fall out. But Bob bears the permanent scars of the MKULTRA program, a dark secret in the untold history of the United States' clandestine services. This is the (mostly) true story of how one agency's epic failure set the United States on a collision course with peace, told for the first time as a graphic novel. "Exposes our own government's nefarious experiments with mind control and the CIA's 638 different plots to kill Castro (and you thought it was only exploding cigars). Jason Ciaccia's tale of LSD-crazed assassins would seem ridiculously hyperbolic if it weren't derived from the CIA's own files. With nods to Grosz, Bacon, and Steadman, Aaron Norhanian's fervid ink drawings propel this witty hybrid of underground comix and the History channel right over the top." - Village Voice, "Best of the Year." "This wild ride down the roughest back roads of U.S. intelligence (so to speak) belongs in most academic and many public libraries. Ralph Steadman-channeled grotesque drawings, full nudity, and splatter violence make it best for adult collections." - Library Journal. "...may not fit the bill for those seeking a Ludlum-esque conspiracy thriller, but it certainly has plenty to offer. Cold War buffs will enjoy its witty summation of that era's events while those unfamiliar with the history are likely to seek out more information on the topic when they're finished reading. This graphic novel is a genuinely funny take on a story that could have been made up if it hadn't already taken place in the real world." - Comics Bulletin.

  • - The Complete Velda, Girl Detective Volume Two
     
    149,95 kr.

    My name is Velda Bellinghausen. I'm a private investigator. I used to be a showgirl at Slotnik's Follies, but I got pretty sick and tired of shedding my clothes twice a day, four times on weekends for matinees. So I followed up on an ad I saw on a matchbook cover and sent in my twenty bucks for the Hawkshaw Course on Detection. It was the best twenty bucks I ever spent, too! In no time at all, I had my license and was in business for myself! Now I'm called upon to investigate murders, burglaries, and all sorts of crimes occurring in the big city. Velda: Girl Detective is a multi-leveled representation of the more lurid of the 1950s crime comics as if it actually existed as a classic Golden Age comic. A passing homage to the noir films and hard-boiled detective school of writing of the 1950s as it includes vintage ads as well as side story featurettes such as "Hawkshaw Hawk, Bird Detective" and "Neolithica: Girl of the Pleistocene." In this second volume, stories of Velda's exploits continue in Velda "Goes to the Circus" and "Goes to Hollywood" plus Velda hypnotized, visiting a dude ranch, and Velda against a crazed strangler. See the action tales of a burlesque queen who became a private eye. As a special bonus, this volume contains Velda's calendar pinups!

  • - The Magus and Other Stories
     
    172,95 kr.

    The lead feature is Magus which ties into the Saint Germaine storyline but stands on its own. The Magus is said to be immortal and secrets are revealed as to how he obtained his immortality. There was a heavy price to pay and now, Beelzebub, the Lord of the Flies has come to collect. Will Magus sacrifice his only daughter to this master of the darkness? And when Lilith attempts to save herself, her mind, composed of the memories of the dead is suddenly wiped clean and now she must search within herself for her true nature. Also included here are two Saint Germaine stand alone stories. "The Tragedy of Falstaff" is based on one of William Shakespeare's most tragic characters. Formerly an influential force with the young Prince Hal, Falstaff is ostracized by Hal when he assumes the throne as King Henry the V. In an ALL NEW story, Saint Germaine narrates a story to writer, Victor Hugo and it deals with the love and tribulations of a hunchback at the cathedral of Notre Dame. "Quasimodo's Tale" is about a hunchback, victim of cruelty yet still manages to find something to love in the world...until it is taken away. REVIEWS OF SAINT GERMAINE: "----Eclectic, dense with meaning, and by no means a quick or easy read, the comic takes its pleasure in not explaining the alpha and omega of its main character. The result is a character we do not completely understand with a history we cannot penetrate---in short, the most intriguing immortal in comics since Neil Gaiman's Hob Gadling." ----Barry Lyga, Diamond Comics, Under the Reading Lamp"A jewel of writing and design... a work that dares to dream..."--- Lino Terlichi, Drive Magazine"This is more than a winner, Saint Germaine is a stunning example of the power of the medium. It should be exalted. "----John L. Kruze"... taken alternate comics into the next level of storytelling. I am in awe." ---Paul Dale Roberts"Saint Germaine from Gary Reed has to be one of most powerful things I've ever read. Outstanding, simply outstanding. They don't get any better than this." ---Alicia Simmons, Fiction World.

"Jazz Age Chronicles is an extremely well-crafted detective series.... Jazz Age Chronicles' creator, Ted Slampyak, has filled his comic with references to the era. That's the sort of touch that I appreciate..." - Cliff Biggers, Comic Shop News. "[Ted Slampyak's] backgrounds give a strong feeling of credibility to the plot. I really feel like the characters are in a city that exists. The story comes alive because of it...." - Gene Colan, Hall-of-Fame artist, Daredevil, Tomb of Dracula, Nathaniel Dusk.
