Castle waiting by Linda Medley( Book )

in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[1] " ... tells the story of an isolated, abandoned castle, and the eccentric inhabitants who bring it back to life. A fable for modern times, Castle Waiting is a fairy tale that's not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil -- but about being a hero in your own home. The opening story, "The Brambly Hedge," tells the origin of the castle itself, which is abandoned by its princess in a comic twist on "Sleeping Beauty" when she rides off into the sunset with her Prince Charming. The castle becomes a refuge for misfits, outcasts, and others seeking sanctuary, playing host to a lively and colorful cast of characters that inhabits the subsequent stories, including a talking anthropomorphic horse, a mysteriously pregnant Lady on the run, and a bearded nun"--Publisher's description

The complete Wimmen's Comix( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late '60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium ; but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen's Comix. Within two years the Wimmen's Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America ; Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty-year run, the women of Wimmen's tackled subjects the guys wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain't Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published

The Frank book by Jim Woodring( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers who haven't discovered Jim Woodring's Frank stories will find a treat waiting for them in the pages of this book. Since publication in 1991 of the award-winning, epoch-making Frank in the River, these lusciously hypnotic fables have dazzled cartoon lovers the world over. Frank is a generic anthropomorph who lives in a world of mysterious and dangerous beauty. Propelled by forces beyond his control, including his own unquenchable curiosity, he finds himself in one bizarre escapade after another, frequently involving the loathsome Manhog or the power-hungry Whim. Luckily, Frank has a protector and ally in the form of his feisty godling companion, Pupshaw. Frank's adventures are told in a series of nearly wordless cartoon stories that draw readers deep into a hallucinatory mindscape governed by a profound interior logic that raises the Frank Book to a level above fantasy. As Francis Ford Coppola says in his introduction, "The ancient myths and folk tales of all cultures which have been preserved. For so many centuries have meaning for us today because the fantastic elements in them are rooted in immutable reality. The Frank stories belong to this class of literature."

R. Crumb by R Crumb( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few cartoonists have affected our world the way Robert Crumb (1943- ) has, from busting cultural and sexual taboos for artists everywhere with his pioneering underground comix to his never-ending drive to improve his art. This book, the third volume of The comics Journal Library series, presents a composite portrait of the artist through four long out-of-print interviews from the Utne Independent Press Award-winning magazine's archives and a never-before-published chat from the artist's 1980s renaissance. This volume spans Crumb's life and career, covering his views on sex, politics, art, racism and culture, his peers and family, his flirtations with success on America's terms and his later rejections of those terms. It also provides an absorbing oral history of the latter half of the 20th century from the point of view of an artist who helped shape it"--Back cover
Gahan Wilson's Out there by Gahan Wilson( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gahan Wilson is probably best known for his macabre Playboy cartoons--filled with charming monsters, goofy mad scientists, and melting victims--and his cutting-edge work in the National Lampoon, but in 1964, he brought his brilliantly controlled wiggly-but-sophisticated pen line to The magazine of fantasy & science fiction. Wilson's freaks and geeks found a home among the stories of the best fantasy and sf writers of the day, offering a welcome, if sometimes macabre or existentially imponderable, graphic break from the magazine's otherwise straightforward prose. Wilson's playfully black sense of comedy was on full display in these cartoons, delineated in his trademark roly-poly, sensual, delicately hatched line. Out There features the over 250 cartoons that Wilson drew during his tenure with the magazines as well as all four covers he rendered--none of which have seen the light of day since their first appearance 50 years ago. Wilson also contributed both short stories and movie and book reviews, which are included as well."--Amazon.com
