Description:
MA./Seattle: Kitchen Sink/Fantagraphics, 1995. First Printings . Paper. Set in the suburbs of Seattle during the mid-1970s, the comics follow a group of mostly middle class teenagers who, over the summer, contract a mysterious sexually transmitted disease known as "the Bug" or "the teen plague", which causes them to develop bizarre unique physical mutations, turning them into social outcasts. It was published as a 12-issue comic book limited series between 1995 and 2004. The first four issues were released by Kitchen Sink Press; after Kitchen Sink went out of business, Fantagraphics republished the first four issues and the remaining eight. A compiled hardcover volume was released by Pantheon Books in 2005. This collected edition, however, lacks many pages that were included in the first publication- the ones that showed some characters' faces. These pages are considered by some critics to be essential. This is a complete pristine as new collection of all 12 issues and are all… Read More

Pelc, Ant., Lev Haas, and Holobrádek. RP karikatury. Prague: Redakce Rudého práva, 1947. First Edition, First Printing. Oblong Octavo (8 1/8 x 5 3/4 inches; 208 x 145 mm), 75, [5] pages, in wrappers (soft cover).A rare book of cartoons published by the Czech Communist Party newspaper, Rudé právo. Antonin Pelc and Lev Haas drew the cartoons, which are pro-Communist, anti-Nazi, anti-American, and anti-Western alliance. Holobrádek (a pseudonym) supplied short verses to accompany each cartoon. The book appeared in 1947, a year before the Communist seizure of power in Czechoslovakia. Oddly, the cover features a cartoon by Pelc that misspells the name of Klement Gottwald, the Communist leader (it shows only one "t" in Gottwald). A sign displayed in the cartoon reads (translating from the Czech): "The construction of a two-year plan is carried out by Gotwald and others." That's a fair representation of the sometimes heavy-handed propaganda in the book, which depicts American businessmen as fat… Read More

Description:
1978. Ephemera. Fine. An exceptional 16-piece original comic-art sequence published across four full pages in Road and Track magazine's June 1978 issue, and one of Mott's finest works. Stan Mott (1933-2022) was one of the best-known and most-beloved car cartoonists, with work appearing in Road and Track, Automobile, and other magazines. He is best remembered for his silly cars, including the Cyclops II, described as "the world's cheapest ($14.32) and stupidest (fetal seating positions) car." Many car enthusiasts built versions of the car and Road and Track featured their custom built Cyclops in dozens of magazine articles. This mixed-media cartoon, in pen and ink, watercolor, and gouache, is a fever dream of the Cyclops II, which begins the wordless narrative parked outside a house. As night falls, it transforms into a Bugatti Type 41 Royale Napoleon Coupe, and races through Los Angeles, finding adventure and madness on the way. In one scene, the Bugatti tears through a live TV commercial being… Read More
