Richard L GrahamGovernment Issue – Comics For The People 1940s to 2000s (paperback) ... Book
Abrams Comic Arts, 2009. New Copy Book ... $6.99 29.95
Cool comics from a very unlikely source – publications put together by the US government to spread ideas and inform the public – many of which were handled by top comics talents from the mainstream! The quality of this material is surprisingly wonderful – not schlocky propaganda, but thoughtfully-scripted, well-penned comics that have the same sort of appeal as work from the cleaner, more wholesome side of the Silver Age! Artists include Neal Adams, Charles Biro, Kurt Schaffenberger, Joe Kubert, Milt Caniff, and many others – including a fair bit of unknown illustrators too. The book is surprisingly fun, and a much-needed look at this lesser-known strand of 20th Century comics. 308 pages, full color, and softcover. Book

McSweeney'sMcSweeneys Issue 27 ... Book
McSweeneys, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 24.00
One of the coolest issues of McSweeney's to date – a special slipcover that features three different books inside! Our favorite is Autophobia – a sketchbook by Art Spiegelman that's a great change from some of his higher-concept projects – not only a great way to see his talents evolve in action, but also work with a much more free-floating sense of connection – like his earlier underground comix material! A second book is Lots Of Things Like This – which features graphic art from William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Roy Art Lodge, Leonard Cohen, David Mamet, Joe Brainard, Raymond Pettibon, David Shrigley, and many others. And the last book is the main one – with fiction by Ashlee Adams, Liz Mandrell, Mikel Jollett, Stephen King, and Larry Smith. A really great package – and proof again that McSweeney's is one of the most inventive presses around! Book

McSweeney'sMcSweeneys Issue 34 ... Book
McSweeneys, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 20.00
An issue of McSweeney's with a special bonus – a whole book! The issue comes in a plastic slipcover that features the core volume – a thick journal with writings by Tom Barbash, Sean Casey, Daniel Handler, Lawrence Minh Bui Davis, Anthony Doerr, Bridge Clerken, David Means, and others – plus a totally great section of self-portraits by a range of talents who include Sarah Silverman, Michel Gondry, Rashida Jones, Mike Leigh, Jonathan Lethem, Jonathan Ames, and others. In the other side of the slipcover is the book The End Of Major Combat Operations by Nick McDonell – a scathing look at the continuing engagement of American troops in Iraq! Book
