Soft City by Pushwagner( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and French and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. . ." So dawns a new day in Soft City, where pill-stuffed citizens sit in traffic, march off to work at Soft Inc., zone out in front of the TV news, and shop, shop, shop. The only graphic novel by the legendary Norwegian pop artist Hariton Pushwagner-- completed in 1975, lost for decades, and never before published in the United States--is a scathing masterpiece in the tradition of Brazil and A Brave New World but with an off-kilter beauty all its own. Pushwagner gives us an epic, exuberantly intricate vision of a single day in a world gone wrong: a brightly smiling, disturbingly familiar dystopia of towering skyscrapers, omnipresent surveillance, and endless, distant war. Every face looks like the next, and language itself has gone soft: "CLEAN BOMB THE HAPPY WAY," blares the morning paper; "Heil Hilton!" barks an overlord on the news. Welcome to Soft City. Now don't be late for work"--

Featured speakers include director Harold Ramis, actress Kristin Chenoweth, and cartoonist Chris Ware

Is that all there is? by Joost Swarte( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under Swarte's own exacting supervision, Is That All There Is? will collect virtually all of his alternative comics work from 1972 to date, including the RAW magazine stories that brought him fame among American comics aficionados in the 1980s. Especially great pains will be taken to match Swarte's superb coloring, which includes stories executed in watercolor, comics printed in retro duotones, fiendishly clever use of Zip-a-Tone screens, and much more. (There's even a story about how to color comics art using those screens, with Makassar as the teacher.) Other noteworthy stories include Swarte's take on an episode from Hergé's early days, a Fats Domino story, a tribute to the legendary "Upside-Downs" strip, and a story titled simply "Modern Art.""--Publisher website
Along the lines : selected drawings by Saul Steinberg by Saul Steinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romanian-born American artist Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) won international acclaim for his inventive, wry representations of the postwar age. His work appeared on the covers and interiors of the New Yorker for nearly six decades, and his drawings, collages, prints, paintings, and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. With essays by cartoonist Chris Ware and curator Mark Pascale, this book traces Steinberg's imagery as it evolved over the full scope of his career, during which he refused to distinguish between high and low art. The 60 works included range from the witty black-ink takes on his newly adopted land of 1940s America to the watercolor paintings he made as a mature artist in the late 1980s"--
