Today we’re sharing the final cover for Dörfler, the debut graphic novel from Jeremy Baum. http://www.fantagraphics.com/dorfler

Dörfler is set in a dystopian world where memories have become weaponized tools of the totalitarian police state.  The story unfolds across multiple dimensions of time and space, amidst a backdrop of beauty and decay in two very different landscapes. Two lovers wander the Northern Mountains, ancient lands where inter-dimensional creatures roam and electronic technology has been rendered inoperable. A woman in the city is on a mission for revenge against the government that subjects its citizens to cruel experiments.

Stay tuned to the Flog for coming posts that will reveal more art and story. The book is also available for pre-order now.

Attention boys and ghouls: you may now peruse a 36-page downloadable excerpt of Grave Business, illustrated by "Ghastly" Graham Ingels' comics, if you dare. http://issuu.com/fantagraphics/docs/grabus-preview?e=1019492/12453594

Ingels delivers a shock to readers with his grisly depictions —leavened only by a sly wink to the reader and a generous dose of dreadful puns. His brushwork oozes ominously across every panel, perfectly setting the mood for the shudder-inducing fates of such corrupt characters as the sadistic asylum director, the political candidate who murders his opponent, the ventriloquist with the homicidal "dummy," the millionaire who persecutes an aged junkman, and the medieval duke who runs over a young boy with his carriage then taxes the peasants to pay for cleaning up his victim's blood.
 
Like every book in the Fantagraphics' EC line, Grave Business and Other Stories superbly showcases these classic comic book masterpieces and enhances the reader's experience with commentary and historical and biographical detail from EC experts. You can pre-order your copy now: http://www.fantagraphics.com/gravebusiness

Now in Stock:
Black River by Josh Simmons

See previews/order now: http://www.fantagraphics.com/blackriver

112-page black and white 6.5" x 8.5" softcover
$18.99 | 978-1-60699-833-5

Josh Simmons returns with his first full-length graphic novel since 2007's acclaimed House. A group of women, one man, and two dogs are making their way through a post-apocalyptic world in search of a city that supposedly still has electricity and some sort of civilization. Along the way, they go to a comedy club, take a drug called Gumdrop, and encounter gangs of men who are fools, lunatics, or murderous sadists. In other words, all manner of terrors.

Josh Simmons is one of the field's most distinctive voices in the genre of horror (The Furry Trap, House),and this full-length graphic novel is his best work yet, echoing director John Carpenter's perfect tick-tock pacing, as well as Shirley Jackson's ability to transcend genre and turn it into literature.

Can't get enough of these. These were the comics I grew up with. Even before Ducktales was created.
