Julie Doucet’s comic book series Dirty Plotte is one of the most iconic to have ever been created, a visionary work both for the medium and for storytelling. Her stories are candid, funny, and intimate, plumbing the depths of the female psyche while charting the fragility of the men around her. Her artwork is dense and confident, never wavering in the wit and humour of its owner. Dirty Plotte: The Complete Julie Doucet collects the entire comic book series, including the acclaimed My New York Diary, rare comics and previously unpublished material, in a deluxe two volume box set.

Tom Gauld (MooncopYou’re All Just Jealous of My JetpackGoliath) has created countless iconic strips for the Guardian over the course of his illustrious career. A master of condensing grand, highbrow themes into one-to-eight panel comics, Gauld’s weekly Guardian strips embody his trademark British humor, while simultaneously opening comics to an audience unfamiliar with the artistry that cartooning has to offer. Funny but serious, the Guardian comics allow Gauld to put his impressive knowledge of history, literature, and pop culture on full display, his impeccable timing, and distinctive visual style setting him apart from the rest.

Inspired by the visual richness and cinematic structure of the Hollywood Musical, Blame This on the Boogie chronicles the adventures of a Filipino-American girl born in the decade of disco who escapes life’s hardships and mundanity through through the genre’s feel good song and dance numbers. Ayuyang’s deeply personal, moving stories unveil the magic of the world around us-rendering the ordinary extraordinary through a jazzed-up song and dance routine. Blame This on the Boogie is Ayuyang’s ode to the melody of the world, and how tuning out of life and into the magic of Hollywood can actually help an outsider find their place in it.

Fielder is the new series by Kevin Huizenga, author of the classic Ganges series of over-sized comics, featuring four new stories by the multi-Ignatz winning, Eisner, and Harvey nominated cartoonist. Reminiscent of current one-man anthologies like Sammy Markham’s Crickets and Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve, this new “comics magazine” will center on Huizenga’s character, Glenn Ganges, in different genre-bending roles. This issue will feature the first chapter of the new graphic novel, “Fielder, Michiana,” as well as a continuation of Huizenga’s dinosaur adventure comic, “Bona,” and some of his short “Viral Webcomics” series.
