Jim Flora; Irwin Chusid & Barbara Economon, eds.Sweetly Diabolical Art Of Jim Flora ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2009. New Copy ... $19.99 34.99
Wonderful postwar artwork from Jim Flora – an artist you may know from record cover art, but who's represented here with a range of other illustrations as well! Flora's vintage images for Columbia and RCA are well-known to crate-diggers like us – but this beautiful package brings together more obscure images from advertising, brochures, newspapers, and other long-gone sources – and also includes some never-seen Flora images as well! As with the record art, the images here are all pretty darn incredible – very weird, playful, and offbeat – and presented in full color throughout. Book is 179 pages, oversized, and very hefty! Book

New Gilbert HernandezLove From The Shadows – A Love & Rockets Book (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2011. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
Some of the darkest work we've ever seen from Gilbert Hernandez – his third standalone graphic novel in this cool crime/b-movie-styled series! The work has a feel that's a bit like his Palomar stories, but packs a bit more punch, too – somewhat raunchier in themes, with the kind of crime thriller feel you'd guess from the cover! Done in a very nice format – 120 pages, black and white, and hardcover. Book

New MartiCabbie Vol 1 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Genius work from Spanish cartoonist Marti – the first run of his legendary Cabbie – a kind of surreal combination between Dick Tracy and Taxi Driver! The images are in a stark, bold, black and white mode that's like Chester Gould at his most pointed – but the subject matter is even more bizarre, as The Cabbie lives in a seedy urban torment between greed and lust and Catholic guilt! Marti's work was first presented in the US during the initial run of Raw Magazine – but this beautiful volume offers up 80 oversized pages as a singular narrative, in a very well done-package. Book

New Lou Reed & Lorenzo MattottiRaven (hardcover) ... CD
Fantagraphics, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful book version of Lou Reed's POEtry project – presented here with sublime illustrations from graphic novelist Lorenzo Mattotti! Reed's words draw on the legacy of Edgar Allen Poe, and feature his own interpretations and reworkings of the themes – originally presented on stage by artists who included Laurie Anderson and David Bowie – but featured here on paper, and interspersed with images from Mattotti that really complement the words. Some of Mattotti's images are in that bold, colorful charcoal style that we love from his graphic novels – and others are spare black and white ink drawings that show a very different side of his style, but one that still has an equal sense of power. Hardcover book is 164 pages, and full color throughout. CD
