The Comic Book Story of Beer: The World's Favorite Beverage from 7000 BC to Today's Craft Brewing Revolution- ARRAY(0x1f2fd30) - - Ten Speed Press New York Times Best Seller

A full-color, lushly illustrated graphic novel that recounts the many-layered past and present of beer through dynamic pairings of pictures and meticulously researched insight into the history of the world's favorite brew.


The History of Beer Comes to Life!

We drink it. We love it. But how much do we really know about beer? Starting from around 7000 BC, beer has emerged as a major element driving humankind’s development, a role it has continued to play through today’s craft brewing explosion. With The Comic Book Story of Beer, the first-ever nonfiction graphic novel focused on this most favored beverage, you can follow along from the very beginning, as authors Jonathan Hennessey and Mike Smith team up with illustrator Aaron McConnell to present the key figures, events, and, yes, beers that shaped and frequently made history. No boring, old historical text here, McConnell’s versatile art style—moving from period-accurate renderings to cartoony diagrams to historical caricatures and back—finds an equal and effective partner in the pithy, informative text of Hennessey and Smith presented in captions and word balloons on each page. The end result is a filling mixture of words and pictures sure to please the beer aficionado and comics geek alike.

Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors -George W. Bush - - CROWN #1 New York Times bestseller | Amazon "Best Books of the Month"

A vibrant collection of oil paintings and stories by President George W. Bush honoring the sacrifice and courage of America’s military veterans.  With Forewords by former First Lady Laura Bush and General Peter Pace, 16th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. 

 
Growing out of President Bush’s own outreach and the ongoing work of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative, Portraits of Courage brings together sixty-six full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the United States military who have served our nation with honor since 9/11—and whom he has come to know personally.  
 
Our men and women in uniform have faced down enemies, liberated millions, and in doing so showed the true compassion of our nation. Often, they return home with injuries—both visible and invisible—that intensify the challenges of transitioning into civilian life. In addition to these burdens, research shows a civilian-military divide. Seventy-one percent of Americans say they have little understanding of the issues facing veterans, and veterans agree: eighty-four percent say that the public has "little awareness" of the issues facing them and their families.
 
Each painting in this meticulously produced hardcover volume is accompanied by the inspiring story of the veteran depicted, written by the President. Readers can see the faces of those who answered the nation’s call and learn from their bravery on the battlefield, their journeys to recovery, and the continued leadership and contributions they are making as civilians. It is President Bush’s desire that these stories of courage and resilience will honor our men and women in uniform, highlight their family and caregivers who bear the burden of their sacrifice, and help Americans understand how we can support our veterans and empower them to succeed. 
 
 
President Bush will donate his net author proceeds from PORTRAITS OF COURAGE to the George W. Bush Presidential Center, a non-profit organization whose Military Service Initiative works to ensure that post-9/11 veterans and their families make successful transitions to civilian life with a focus on gaining meaningful employment and overcoming the invisible wounds of war.

In 1988, the manga was adapted into what was at the time the most expensive animated film ever made, which brought Akira's influence out of the manga world and onto the global stage.

The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb -R. Crumb - - W W Norton Company

Nominated for three 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards: From Creation to the death of Joseph, here are all 50 chapters of the Book of Genesis, revealingly illustrated as never before.

Envisioning the first book of the bible like no one before him, R. Crumb, the legendary illustrator, reveals here the story of Genesis in a profoundly honest and deeply moving way. Originally thinking that we would do a take off of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated by the Bible’s language, “a text so great and so strange that it lends itself readily to graphic depictions,” that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation using the text word for word in a version primarily assembled from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James bible.

Now, readers of every persuasion―Crumb fans, comic book lovers, and believers―can gain astonishing new insights from these harrowing, tragic, and even juicy stories. Crumb’s Book of Genesis reintroduces us to the bountiful tree lined garden of Adam and Eve, the massive ark of Noah with beasts of every kind, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by brimstone and fire that rained from the heavens, and the Egypt of the Pharaoh, where Joseph’s embalmed body is carried in a coffin, in a scene as elegiac as any in Genesis. Using clues from the text and peeling away the theological and scholarly interpretation that have often obscured the Bible’s most dramatic stories, Crumb fleshes out a parade of Biblical originals: from the serpent in Eden, the humanoid reptile appearing like an alien out of a science fiction movie, to Jacob, a “kind’ve depressed guy who doesn’t strike you as physically courageous,” and his bother, Esau, “a rough and kick ass guy,” to Abraham’s wife Sarah, more fetching than most woman at 90, to God himself, “a standard Charlton Heston-like figure with long white hair and a flowing beard.”

As Crumb writes in his introduction, “the stories of these people, the Hebrews, were something more than just stories. They were the foundation, the source, in writing of religious and political power, handed down by God himself.” Crumb’s Book of Genesis, the culmination of 5 years of painstaking work, is a tapestry of masterly detail and storytelling which celebrates the astonishing diversity of the one of our greatest artistic geniuses.

Nominated for three 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards: Best Adaptation from Another Work, Best Graphic Album, Best Writer/Artist.

R. Crumb: The Complete Record Cover Collection -R. Crumb -

A landmark work that pays splendid homage to a forgotten era of seminal American music.

Robert Crumb first began drawing record covers in 1968 when Janis Joplin, a fellow Haight Ashbury denizen, asked him to provide a cover for her album Cheap Thrills. It was an invitation the budding artist couldn't resist, especially since he had been fascinated with record covers-particularly for the legendary jazz, country, and old-time blues music of the 1920s and 1930s-since he was a teen. This early collaboration proved so successful that Crumb went on to draw hundreds of record covers for both new artists and largely forgotten masters. So remarkable were Crumb's artistic interpretations of these old 78 rpm singles that the art itself proved influential in their rediscovery in the 1960s and 1970s. Including such classics as Truckin' My Blues Away, Harmonica Blues, and Please Warm My Weiner, Crumb's opus also features more recent covers done for CDs. R. Crumb: The Complete Record Cover Collection is a must-have for any lover of graphics and old-time music. 450 four-color illustrations

R. Crumb 36 Character Boxed Trading Card Set NEW 2010 -ARRAY(0x20b3708) - Thirty-Six different characters with short histories on the reverse! R. Crumb Trading Cards is the perfect gift or addition to the collection of any even half-serious Crumb fan. The boxed set is very similar in format to the popular Heroes of the Blues, Early Jazz Greats and Pioneers of Country Music card sets also published by Denis Kitchen Publishing and available here and from specialty retailers everywhere.

Featured characters include... the mysterious guru Mr. Natural; his loyal devotee Flakey Foont; The Nerds; Pete the Plumber (and his sidekick Plungo); Whiteman and Yeti the Bigfoot both from Homegrown Funnies; Ruff Tuff Creampuff; the raining Meatball from Zap #0; Shuman the Human; Dirty Dog; Smelly Old Cat; The Desperate Character; Mr. Appropriate (way ahead of his time on the ecology front); Vulture Demoness (the dominatrix from Big Ass #1-2); Eggs Ackley (whose eyeballs were stolen by crows in Motor City #1); Sally Blubberbutt; Fritz the Cat (star of the Ralph Bakshi animated cartoons who was then permanently killed in People s Comix); Those Cute Little Bearzy Wearzies (Jippo and Boopsy); The big-foot character from Keep on Truckin ; Onion Head; Patricia Pig; Forky O Donnell (you don t want to have lunch with this guy!); Squirelly the Squirrel; Cheesis K. Reist, star of Hamburgers! ; Boingy Baxter; The Simp and The Gimp; Ruth Schwartz (the original gurl in Big Ass #1 who later helped Flakey Foont institutionalize Mr. Natural in Mr. Natural #3); Devil Girl (from before she had a line of candy); Mr. Snoid; Angelfood McSpade, The Old Pooperoo; Dale Steinberger the Jewish Cowgirl; Joe Blow (from the infamous Zap #4 bust); Little Johnny Fuckerfaster; Bo Bo Belinski (the drunk, not the baseball player); and Robert Crumb himself (a nice self-portrait, but he s also a regular cast member).

On the back of each card is a concise character synopsis written by the late comics historian Dave Schreiner, accompanied by 2-color bonus illustrations. All in a snappy box designed by R. Crumb and Pete Poplaski.

Publisher s Note: This is the first printing from Denis Kitchen Publishing. Old hippies and a few collectors will remember a similar set published by Kitchen Sink Press way back in 1991. How is this set different? First, if you compare boxes, the cover design has been significantly tweaked by Crumb: his background characters and cityscape in the 1991 version are gone and the I am not a swan quote is new. The box lettering is new and bolder. The new box has a glossy finish. The Patricia Pig image (card #21) is all-new, and the beak on Vulture Demoness (card #14) has been fixed, among the differences discerning fans will note.

Art & Beauty Magazine: Drawings by R. Crumb: Numbers 1, 2 & 3 - - - David Zwirner Books

R. Crumb's beguiling drawings of bodacious and bold women from the 1990s to the present

Gathering all three volumes of R. Crumb’s acclaimed Art & Beauty Magazine, this publication guides the reader through the 20-year history of Crumb’s magazine, from the earliest images in the 1990s to the most recent drawings completed in 2016.

Art & Beauty: Number 1, originally published by Kitchen Sink Press in 1996, is at once a satirical take on aesthetics and a continued exploration of Crumb’s subversion of sexuality and mainstream values. Drawings of women in positions ranging from lascivious to modest are accompanied by quotations, many of which are from artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Harvey Kurtzman. Mining his own obsessions and fantasies, Crumb reimagines the history of art, challenging social mores and expectations of propriety around the female form.
The second volume of Art & Beauty, published in 2003, expanded on the first, adding all-new drawings (also of women) and quotations, likewise taken from the history of art. The images appeal to a purely erotic sensibility, which is undercut by the inclusion of often philosophical prose.

The eagerly awaited Art & Beauty: Number 3 is released for the first time as part of Art & Beauty Magazine, published on the occasion of the artist’s exhibition at David Zwirner, London.
This beautiful edition, with a cover specially designed by the artist, is a wonderful window into Crumb’s world of bodies and ideas, art and beauty, for seasoned supporters and novices alike.

Born in Philadelphia in 1943, R. Crumb has used the comic-book medium to address the absurdity of social conventions, political disillusionment, irony, racial and gender stereotypes, sexual fantasies and fetishes. Inspired by Thomas Nast, Honoré Daumier and T.S. Sullivant, among others, his drawings offer a satirical critique of consumer culture.

The Complete Crumb Comics: "The Early Years of Bitter Struggle" (Two) (Vol. 1) (Complete Crumb) -R. Crumb - - Fantagraphics Books

This long out-of-print volume collects Crumb's earliest comic efforts.

This long out-of-print first volume of the multiple Harvey and Eisner award-winning Complete Crumb Comics series has been one of our most demanded reprints of the last several years. Now, this landmark volume of Robert Crumb’s formative years not only will return, but also boast a major discovery not included in prior editions: a never-before-published, 60 page “home-made” Arcade comic from 1962.

Growing up, Robert and his brother Charles often created their own comic books. These “home-made” editions were usually produced in editions of one. As such, many have been lost to time or private collections. What hasn't comprises much of the first two volumes of The Complete Crumb series. Their creation continued throughout the 1950s and into the early ’60s and eventually the content of Crumb’s work gradually matured from the light-hearted, funny animal antics of earlier years to stories that flashed signals of what we now recognize as “true Crumb.”

This previously undiscovered Arcade “issue,” from May, 1962, shows many flashes of where Crumb was heading (whereas Charles had all but abandoned drawing comics by the ’60s). The 17-page strip “Jim” is the most emotionally-charged work of Crumb’s young life to that point, a gentle and psychologically astute look at a boy who needs a mother, and also brimming with signs of his increasing frustration with Catholicism. It also features the first quintessential “Crumb girl,” Mabel.

This volume also includes several early Fritz the Cat stories (a.k.a. “Animal Town Comics”), and the classic “Treasure Island Days” (as seen in the Crumb film) and is rounded out with other strips, diary entries and sketches that will be a treasure trove for Crumb fans, all defining work from Crumb’s formative years as a cartoonist, spanning the years 1958-1962 (when Crumb was ages 15-19) and featuring material from other “home-made” comics of the era. This is Ground Zero for a man who may well be the greatest cartoonist who ever lived.

Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book -Jomny Sun -

everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien—based on the enormously popular Twitter account, @jonnysun.

Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too. Jomny finds friendship in a bear tired of other creatures running away in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, an owl working its way to being wise, a tree feeling stuck in one place, a tadpole coming to terms with turning into a frog, a dying ghost, a puppy unable to express itself, and many more.

Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the creatures of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood (Pantheon Graphic Novels) -Marjane Satrapi - - Great product! A New York Times Notable Book
A Time Magazine “Best Comix of the Year”
A San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times Best-seller

Wise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s graphic memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.

In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran’s last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country.

Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Marjane’s child’s-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.

Obama: An Intimate Portrait -Pete Souza -
This is the definitive visual biography of Barack Obama's historic Presidency, captured in unprecedented detail by his White House photographer--and presented in an oversize, 12"x10" exquisitely produced format, and featuring a foreword from the President himself.

Pete Souza served as Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama's full two terms. He was with the President during more crucial moments than anyone else--and he photographed them all. Souza took nearly two million photographs of President Obama, capturing moments both highly classified and disarmingly candid.

Obama: An Intimate Portrait reproduces Souza's most iconic photographs in exquisite detail, more than three hundred in all. Some have never been published. These photographs document the most consequential hours of the Presidency--including the historic image of President Obama and his advisors in the Situation Room during the bin Laden mission--alongside unguarded moments with the President's family, his encounters with children, interactions with world leaders and cultural figures, and more.

Souza's photographs, with the behind-the-scenes captions and stories that accompany them, communicate the pace and power of our nation's highest office. They also reveal the spirit of the extraordinary man who became our President. We see President Obama lead our nation through monumental challenges, comfort us in calamity and loss, share in hard-won victories, and set a singular example to "be kind and be useful," as he would instruct his daughters.

The result is a portrait of exceptional intimacy and a stunning record of a landmark era in American history.
