February has only 28 days, but is jam-packed with lots of great graphic novels and related titles!

Warning… looking at what appears so far on BarnesAndNoble.com, the rest of 2011 is going to be just as amazing! Click this link to discover more!  (Sweet Kirby Crackle! Corto Maltese, in English, from Rizzoli?!) Better start shopping for bookshelves now.

Since this list takes a lot of work, I will not be adding hyperlinks to the publishers or BN.com.  Most browsers allow you to search directly just by highlighting a term, or feel free to cut and paste into whichever web browser you prefer.

As always, I work for Barnes & Noble, but do not speak for them.  These are titles which caught my interest, and are worth a closer work.  I have not read any of these books (perhaps a comic here or there) so do not endorse any specific title on this list.  My tastes are not yours, so please recommend other titles below in the comments!  Also, the information below is subject to change.  Covers, publication dates, prices, formats… all data are subject to changes.

Comments

  1. I hope that new edition of CORTO MALTESE has a new translation — the last time I saw Corto Maltese in English, the translation was crummy. I’d love to read a well-done edition.

    And has anyone seen any Hermes Press books? This is the 4th time I’ll be buying those early STEVE CANYON strips in hopes of good collections that last long enough to get all the strip’s best stuff collected. Kitchen Sink’s done the best job so far, but even their run didn’t last long enough…

  2. Whoops! That Hermes STEVE CANYON is a collection of the comic books, not the strips. Never mind.

  3. hikaru go says:

    I haven’t read any of Hugo Pratt’s work…I need to correct that, even if only from artist’s perspective.

    Is it merely coincidence that an Ayn Rand adaptation is followed by “Age of Reptiles?”…hmmmmm

  4. Size matters says:

    And to think Fantagraphics got flack for announcing Barks at 90% and then it was “no, wait, it’s more like 95% or 97%”.

    They should have learnt from this ballsy guys: Hugo Freakintg Pratt in shitty comic-book size.

    6-5/8 x 10-1/4

    When the original standard edition is 8.6 x 11.6

    And there’s even an “Absolute” edition at 13 x 16.5:
    http://bd.casterman.com/albums_detail.cfm?id=2762

  5. Yes. Purely coincidence.
    I thought of creating a classic “Six Degrees of Steven Grant” linkage, but decided it was too much work.

    As for Ayn Rand, yes, Steve Ditko was asked to draw, but he declined.

    Yes, the Europeans produce some beautiful archive editions! Some are being imported (Gottfredson via FB, Flash via DC) but there’s a lot I drool over!

  6. Joe Helfrich says:

    Is this one of those Last Unicorn projects that Beagle actually gets money for, or not?

  7. harokin says:

    I really did not realize Ayn Rand did Zelda fanfic. Is Anthem set before or after Majora’s Mask?

    Also, this is like the 10th time there has been a publisher’s Corto Mal-tease. I’ll believe it when the books are on my shelf. And really, there needs to be a whole Pratt collection.

  8. The LAST UNICORN rights were licensed from Beagle, yes, and he does make money from it.

    kdb

  9. Joe Helfrich says:

    Thanks Kurt. I know there are (or at least were) some issue with the movie, and didn’t know how far that went.

Speak Your Mind
