Kitaro Bk 05 Kitaro the Vampire Slayer

av: Shigeru Mizuki
Brit-pop meets Japanese folklore, Shigeru Mizuki summons equal parts humour, spookiness, and sheer absurdity

Kitaro the Vampire Slayer is the fifth volume in Shigeru Mizuki’s bizarre stories about a yokai boy and his entourage of otherworldly friends. One of the most popular Kitaro tales, the title story pits Kitaro and his family against a Beatles-inspired mop-topped, guitar-playing vampire named Erit and his castle of horrors. In an unexpected twist—spoiler alert!—Kitaro meets his demise, but even death is hardly enough to keep our favorite yokai boy down.

Along with the villainous vampire, Kitaro faces a trio of monsters straight from Japanese folklore. Mizuki often pulled from classic Japanese folk tales for inspiration, as shown in these three stories. A certain serpent and temple bell appear in “The Phantom Steam Engine,” then it’s onto a bird-like creature with a big beak in “Ubume,” and Kitaro had better not look behind him when the Ushiro Gami comes to town.

The four stories in this volume are collected from the late ’60s golden age of Gegege no Kitaro. Appearing in English for the first time, this kid-friendly edition is translated by Mizuki-scholar Zack Davisson and includes bonus features like “Yokai Files,” where we are introduced to Japan’s folklore monsters, and the fifth installment of the “History of Kitaro” essay by Davisson. For fans of quirky horror, Kitaro the Vampire Slayer is not one to miss!

It Don't Come Easy

Förlag: Drawn & Quarterly

It Don't Come Easy

av: Philippe Dupuy, Charles Berberian
The award-winning Monsieur Jean series tackles the complexities of everyday life

Since the character of Monsieur Jean first walked onto the page in 1998, he has endeared himself to readers, maturing with each frantic, surreal, heart-warming episode. Beginning as a young Parisian bachelor, defeatist writer, and urban bon vivant, Jean has reluctantly transitioned into a family man of forty, learning how to live with, and ultimately love those around him unconditionally. Constantly surrounded by a group of childhood classmates, an unbearably idealistic live-in friend Felix and his adopted son, Eugene, as well as his sweet daughter Julie, Jean questions life and those of others in an honest and endearing way; his unmistakable joie de vivre always undermined by a palpable sense of cynicism. The joy of these award-winning cartoons stems from that fact that Jean’s weaknesses are our own; his doubts about life, universal; his relentless quest for happiness understood.

Baking with Kafka HC

Förlag: Drawn & Quarterly

Baking with Kafka HC

av: Tom Gauld
In his inimitable style, British cartoonist Tom Gauld has opened comics to a crossover audience and challenged perceptions of what the medium can be. Noted as a “book-lover’s cartoonist,” Gauld’s weekly strips in the Guardian, Britain’s most well-regarded newspaper, stitch together the worlds of literary criticism and pop culture to create brilliantly executed, concise comics. Simultaneously silly and serious, Gauld adds an undeniable lightness to traditionally highbrow themes. From sarcastic panels about the health hazards of being a best-selling writer to a list of magical items for fantasy writers (such as the Amulet of Attraction, which summons mainstream acceptance, Hollywood money, and fresh coffee), Gauld’s cartoons are timely and droll—his trademark British humour, impeccable timing, and distinctive visual style sets him apart from the rest.

Lauded both for his frequent contributions to New Scientist, the Guardian and the New York Times, and his Eisner-nominated graphic novels, Tom Gauld is one of the most celebrated cartoonists working today. In Baking With Kafka, he proves this with one witty, sly, ridiculous comic after another.

Killing & Dying SC

Förlag: Drawn & Quarterly

Killing & Dying SC

av: Adrian Tomine
Few books have wholeheartedly captured the imagination of readers quite like Killing and Dying. Released in 2015 to a slew of rave reviews, the new paperback edition of Killing and Dying is a brilliant reaffirmation of Adrian Tomine's pure, unadulterated talent.

Killing and Dying is a stunning showcase of the possibilities of the graphic novel medium and a wry exploration of loss, creative ambition, identity, and family dynamics. Adrian Tomine's gift for capturing emotion and intellect resonates here: the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century. "Amber Sweet" shows the disastrous impact of mistaken identity in a hyper-connected world; "A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture" details the invention and destruction of a vital new art form in short comic strips; "Translated, from the Japanese" is a lush, full-color display of storytelling through still images; the title story, "Killing and Dying" centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy. In six interconnected, darkly funny stories, Tomine forms a quietly moving portrait of contemporary life, creating a fraught, realist masterpiece.

Åke Jävel Århundradets hjälte

Förlag: Galago

Åke Jävel Århundradets hjälte

av: Lars Sjunnesson
Skit med borgarna och hela jävelsamhället!« Sedan mitten av åttiotalet har Åke Jävels stridsrop spritts från tidningen Galagos sidor till rockfestivaler, tshirts, efterfester och demonstrationståg. 1990 samlades hans bravader i »Åke Jävel århundradets hjälte«, och nu ger Galago på nytt ut den efterfrågade boken.
Åke Jävel är anarkist och ägnar dagarna åt att rusa omkring och spränga, supa, röka och svära. Som Max Andersson skriver i sitt förord till originalutgåvan: »Huvudpersonen är kriminell på ett sätt som helt saknar inre logik. Han utövar ett godtyckligt våld mot ordningsmakten, sillhandeln och cigarettautomaterna. Han säger fula ord men ser ut som att han inte menar dem. Han har ett ansiktsuttryck och hans flickvän har också ett.«
Är detta en briljant politisk analys, eller helt enkelt den dummaste serie Sverige skådat? Kanske är den både och, men klart är att Åke Jävel är precis den hjälte både detta och föregående århundrade gjort sig förtjänta av.

Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire HC

Förlag: Dark Horse

Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire HC

av: Neil Gaiman, Shane Oakley
A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write nonfiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler.

* Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman's satirical tale.
