The alphabet is turned on its head and inside-out and the results culminate in a compilation of daring and surprising verbo-visual gems. The Last Vispo is composed of visual poetry (a portmanteau of the words "(Bvisual" and "(Bpoetry) from the years 1998 to 2008, during a burst of creative activity fueled by file sharing and e-mail, which made it possible for the vispo community to establish a more heightened and sophisticated dialogue with one another. The collection extends the dialectic between art and literature that began with ancient "(Bshaped text," medieval pattern poetry, and dada typography, pushing past the concrete poetics of the 1950s and the subsequent mail art movement of the 1980s to its current incarnation. Rather than settle into predictable, unchallenged patterns, this vibrant poetry seizes new tools to expand the body of work that inhabits the borderlands of visual art and poetic language771ocn031878601serial0.70Ware, ChrisThe ACME Novelty libraryPeriodicals761ocn051946523book20030.18Cartoonists on patriotism!Criticism, interpretation, etcComic books, strips, etc+-+2150245106664ocn061704290serial0.35MomePeriodicals631ocn783160314book20130.35The Love and Rockets Companion : 30 years (and counting)HistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcThe Love and Rockets Companion: 30 Years (and Counting) contains three incredibly in-depth and candid interviews with creators Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez: one conducted by writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline); one conducted some six years into the comic's run by longtime L&R publisher Gary Groth; and one conducted by the book's author, spanning Gilbert's, Jaime's and Mario's careers, and looking to the future of the ongoing series, with a follow-up conversation with Groth. This book has foldout family trees for both Gilbert's Palomar and Jaime's Locas storylines; unpublished art; a character glossary (which is handy, considering that Gilbert alone has created 50+ characters!); highlights from the original series' anarchic letters columns; timelines; and the most wide-ranging Hernandez Brothers bibliography ever compiled, including album and DVD covers, posters and more. The obsessive-yet-accessible detail and high production values make it a must-have for comics collectors, scholars, libraries and old and new fans alike: for those new to the series, it will make jumping in seem less daunting. For longtime fans, it clears up confusion that even those devoted to the groundbreaking alternative comic over its 30-year run can experience, given the sheer amount of material and sophisticated storytelling techniques (such as flashbacks, flash forwards, elliptical narrative and magical realism)5656ocn867238078book0.15Sakai, StanUsagi Yojimbo : grasscutterHistoryJuvenile worksComic books, strips, etcFictionGraphic novelsYoung adult worksFollows the adventures of the rabbit ronin Usagi Yojimbo in seventeenth-century Japan+-+K335245106531ocn711051713book20110.26Schelly, WilliamThe art of Joe KubertCriticism, interpretation, etcBiography"Joe Kubert is one of the great comic book artists. His career literally traverses the history of comics, beginning in 1938 when he became a professional at age 12, to today as one of the greatest draftsmen working in the field. Kubert is known and respected as much for his sinewy, passionate drawing as he is for his consummate storytelling skills. Over his 70-year career in comics, he has worked as an artist, an editor, a publisher, an entrepreneur, and a cartooning auteur. Comics historian Bill Schelly's text parallels the visual evolution of the artist's work, tracing his life and career from his early days drawing Hawkman in the Golden Age, to his creation of Tor, his involvement in creating 3-D comics in the 1950s, his tour de force stints on DC's war comics -- Sgt. Rock, The Unknown Soldier and the groundbreaking Enemy Ace -- in the 1960s, to illustrating the adventures of Tarzan in the 1970s. And before finding a creative safe haven at DC Comics in the '50s, Kubert drew for many smaller and more obscure companies, including Holyoke, Quality, Fiction House, Harvey, St. John, and others -- all of which are represented, including a 50-page section of comic-book stories in the horror, crime, and SF genres from the pre-Comics Code era, reprinted in full color for the first time. Although Kubert is known for his contributions to pop culture icons such as Tarzan and Sgt. Rock, he has also invested his creative energy in more personal projects over the last 20 years, including journalistic and historical graphic novels such as his Eisner Award-winning Fax from Sarajevo and Yossel: April 19, 1943, all of which are illustrated along with Schelly's insightful analysis that places these later, more mature works in the context of Kubert's career"--Jacket+-+0239441516492ocn026388488book19920.50Deitch, KimAll Waldo comicsComic books, strips, etc+-+7325245106435ocn009986697serial0.86Love and rocketsPeriodicalsComic books, strips, etcVol. 1.
