And now for the second part of my comic book haul. In the first part, I showed the awesome art on the posters, bookmarks, and post cards I picked up at the Small Press Expo. Now I’ll show the comic books and graphic novels I picked up.
Ghost Town II: A Collection of Spooky Scenes by Sara L. Turner
— I love Turner’s little booklets and I wish I’d picked up more than one. The illustrations look more fun than scary.
You Heinous Beast, Vol. 1: Workplace Drawings by Andrew Cohen
— I picked this up because I find the exaggerated expressions hilarious.
These two were published by Self Made Hero, which had a table at the expo. I was glad to see them there. I love their Art Masters series and wanted to get more of their books.
Ruins by Peter Kuper
— I had to get this because it was discounted and the synopsis highly appealed to me. Also, I love the cover.
Munch by Steffen Kverneland, trans. by Francesca M. Nichols
— This is from their Art Masters series, which I’d like to collect if I love the books. This would be the second one I own. I got Pablo at BookCon but haven’t yet read it. The cover of the Dali one looks pretty cool too.
Punkrock Jazz by Toby Cypress
— This isn’t a graphic novel; it’s a book featuring Cypress’s art. I saw a girl with a copy and had to ask where she got it because the page she was looking at caught my eye. I tried to get it signed but every time I went back to his booth, he wasn’t there. 😦 Oh well.
Cuttings by Ananth Panagariya, illus. by Yuko Ota
— Here’s another one I got because I saw someone walking by with it. It’s the bones on the cover that caught my eye. It looks great in person.
God Is Disappointed in You by Mark Russell, illus. by Shannon Wheeler
— A humorous book designed to look like the bible. I read the first line and had to get it.
Worse Things Happen at Sea by Kellie Strom
— Nobrow Press had a booth at the expo and I was torn on what to get. I wanted some the children’s books, especially The Journey by Francesca Sanna, which I featured in a Wishes for My TBR post, but my funds were low so I picked up Strom’s book. It’s a leporello and the illustrations are beautiful.
Suicide Forest, Vol. 1 by Dave Baker, illus. by Nicole Goux
— Looks like a really cool horror comic. I love the illustrations.
Spitball, Vol. 2, which is an anthology produced by students at the Columbus College of Art & Design
— I love the cover.
Zana, #1 by Jean Barker, illus. by Joey Granger
Azteca, #1: Ciudad Paradiso by Enrica Jang, illus. by Jhazmine Ruiz with colors by Andre Frattino
The Man from Cripple Creek by Tres Dean, illus. by Jamie Jones
Ink, the Spring 2016 issue of the comics magazine for the School of Visual Arts
Barnes & Noble
Barnes & Noble had a promotion going on where they gave members an extra 10% off items so I grabbed these.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
— I’m not excited about this because the cover creeps me out a bit but none of my libraries have an available copy.
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
— It seems like it will be a fun read.
Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clark
— I’ve wanted to read the book after seeing the SyFy mini-series adaptation.
