William S BurroughsPlace Of Dead Roads ... Book
Fourth Estate (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $5.99 11.00
An overlooked gem from beat legend William S Burroughs – a book from the early 80s, a bit later vintage than his initial classics – but one that was also penned at a time when he was completely at home with his style! Plus, Burroughs is also more confident with his subject matter, too – there was obviously less chance of any sort of obscenity issue at the time than back at the start of the 60s – so this book is perhaps a bit more "out" than some of his others, especially given the story's setting in the old west. Yet as you can imagine from Burroughs, the book is anything but a conventional western – and instead explodes with all the sci fi currents and offbeat wit you'd expect. The names of the key characters are almost enough to hint at the vibe of the story – The Nihilistic Kid and The Crying Gun – and the softcover book is 268 pages. Book

✨✧ EerieEerie – Tales Of Fantasy & Suspense! – Collected Works Vol 1 – Issues 1 to 7 – May/June 1951 to June/July 1952 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1951/1952. New Copy ... $9.99 47.99
An early horror comic that definitely lives up to its name – not to be confused with the black and white magazine that started in the 60s from Warren Publications – but a much earlier, much more obscure work from the glory days of pre-code books in the 50s! Eerie definitely has a look that fits alongside most of its contemporaries – those ultra-creepy comics that were the bane of parents and the PTA back in the day – but the publication also seems willing to try some new things, too – as they experiment with an odd array of creatures and creeps that make their stories a bit different than usual. Don't worry, there's still plenty of ghouls, gore, and freaked-out dudes – and art in these issues is by Wally Wood, Joe Kubert, Fred Kida, Moe Marcus, Louis Ravielli, and others. Book features seven rare issues of Eerie – all in full color, with cover images and ads too! Book

Warren BernardCartoons For Victory (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 34.99
A fantastic collection of World War II-era comic material – including lots of rare work by some of the biggest comic names of the time! Comic art really came into its own as America was entering WWII – the newspaper medium had hit an all-time high, with some of the best art of the century – and the new comic book format was exploding, and would find a huge audience in GIs stationed overseas. Those intertwined fates made for some amazing moments on paper – as comics rallied the forces back home, through well-spirited stories, and characters designed to provide a strong example of America's full potential – a huge propaganda push that not only included obvious folks, like Superman and Captain America – but also Nancy, Little Orphan Annie, and Donald Duck – all of whom had something to say about the war. Yet this book doesn't just stop with comic stories – as it pulls together comic material from advertisements, posters, and other propaganda fronts – with rare work from folks like Milton Caniff, Will Esiner, Al Capp, and other key talents of the time. The book is beautiful – sometimes in two-tone color, sometimes full color – wonderfully laid out, and with lots of supporting text. The hardcover volume is nice and big – almost bigger than the usual art book – and is 254 pages. Book
(Spine has a remainder mark.)
