Artist Music Journal #10
by Brian Roettinger
Artist Music Journal #11
by Dan Nadel And Josh White
This excellent limited edition journal series is the result of the intersection of art and music. #10 comes with a one-sided 10-inch of 3 songs by No Age accompanied by Brian Roettinger (who designed the artwork for No Age's last record, Everything In Between). And #11 features comics editor Dan Nadel's look at Josh White's legendary Fillmore East light shows from the 1968-1970.
Boy's Club #4
by Matt Furie
Matt Furie's comic totally lives up to it's name. Video games, pot, penises and laffs!
Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film
by Zack Carlson / Bryan Connolly
Okay, not a comic, but published by Fantagraphics, who is largely a comics publisher. This excellently researched compendium collects every cinematic punk appearance. Everyone I show this to has a major case of jaw-droppage, it’s just that good.
One of the most anticipated poster art books in recent years, Emek: The Thinking Man's Poster Artist also contains the artist's illustration, political and editorial work into one impressive volume.
Fables Volume 14: Witches
by Bill Willingham / Mark Buckingham
The newest collection in Bill Willingham's hit comic series!
Monster Revolt!: The Art of Dirty Donny
by Dirty Donny Gillies
Another long-awaited collection of illustration work - this time by Dirty Donny - chock full o' gearheady, punk monster goodness.
Planetary Volume 4: Spacetime Archaeology
by Warren Ellis / John Cassaday
Over a decade in the making, Warren Ellis finally finishes his pulp/conspiracy/action cult series with this volume.
Vertigo Resurrected: Winter's Edge #1
by Neil Gaiman / Brian K. Vaughan / Garth Ennis / Paul Pope / Dave Gibbons / Sean Phillips
An all-star array of talent take on Vertigo characters like John Constantine, Swamp Thing and The Endless (from Sandman).
