Killing & Dying by Adrian Tomine is being published in a hardback graphic novel collection, and the Moomins, by Tove Jansson, are getting their own graphic novel story with Moomin Winter.

KILLING & DYING GN TOMINE (MR) (C: 0-1-1)
(W/A/CA) Adrian Tomine
After enjoying over six months on the New York Times Bestseller list, acclaimed cartoonist Adrian Tomine’s realist masterpiece is now available in paperback, with an updated cover and French flaps. With this work, Tomine reaffirms his place not only as one of the most significant creators of contemporary comics, but as one of the great voices of modern American literature. His gift for capturing emotion and intellect resonates: 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.

MOOMIN WINTER GN (C: 0-1-1)
(W/A/CA) Tove Jansson
As the Moomins prepare to hibernate through what is going to be the worst winter yet, several unwelcome guests take advantage of the Moomins’ generosity and keep the family awake throughout the long winter. Their quirky but needy guests prevent the Moomins from hibernating and the chaos only increases with the arrival of a little nibling determined to find out everyone’s secrets. But everyone is ashamed of what the nibling has seen and is determined to keep their secret activities, well, a secret! (STL071953) (C: 0-1-1)

RED COLORED ELEGY GN (MR) (C: 0-1-1)
(W/A/CA) Seiichi Hayashi
Ichiro and Sachiko are young artists, temperamental and discouraged about what life has to offer them. They fall in and out of love, jealous of each other’s interests and unchallenged by their careers. A cornerstone of the Japanese underground scene of the 1960s, Red Colored Elegy charts their heartache, passions, and bickering with equal tenderness, creating a revelatory portrait of a stormy love affair. This new paperback edition features an essay on Hayashi’s contributions to contemporary Japanese comics. (STL071952) (C: 0-1-1)
