Ed The Happy Clown, Brown, Chester
9 Brown, Chester Ed The Happy Clown
Toronto, Vortex Comics, 1992, 0921451083 / 9780921451082 First Edition Trade Paperback Very Good 
A clean, unmarked copy with a tight binding. 216 pages. Slightly worn cover. "Ed the Happy Clown is the title character of a comics work by Canadian cartoonist, Chester Brown. The dark, surreal and largely improvised story started with a series of unrelated short comics that Brown soon went on to tie together. Ed is a large-headed, childlike children's clown, who is subjected to one horrifying affliction after another. The story is a dark, humorous mix of genres which includes vampires, pygmy cannibals, Martians, Frankenstein's monster and others. Prominent is its use of scatological humour, nudity, sex, body horror, extreme graphic violence and potentially blasphemous religious imagery. Central to the plot are a man who cannot stop defecating; the head of a miniature Ronald Reagan attached to the head of the protagonist's penis; and a female vampire who seeks revenge on her adulterous lover who murdered her to escape his sins."

In Love with Art: Françoise Mouly's Adventures in Comics with Art Spiegelman (Exploded Views), Heer, Jeet
20 Heer, Jeet In Love with Art: Françoise Mouly's Adventures in Comics with Art Spiegelman (Exploded Views)
Coach House Books, 2013, 1552452786 / 9781552452783 First Edition Trade Paperback Fine Comic/Graphic Novel 
Brand new book is in excellent condition in every respect. Binding is solid and square, covers have sharp corners, exterior shows no blemishes, text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. Jeet Heer more thoroughly and widely understands comics history and the perplexing binomial life of the cartoonist better than anyone who s not one. As well-versed in literature as he is in comics, he always gets at the peculiar, poetical texture of his subject not only by what he writes, but how he writes it--clearly, mellifluously, and beautifully. Our humble discipline is singularly lucky to have him telling its story. --Chris Ware In a partnership spanning four decades, Francoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman have become the pre-eminent power couple of cutting-edge graphic art. Their landmark magazine Raw, which first published artists such as Ben Katchor, Chris Ware, and Charles Burns, brought an avant-garde sensibility to comics and, along with Spiegelman s legendary graphic novel Maus, completely revolutionized the form. As art editor of the New Yorker since 1993, Mouly has remade the face of that venerable magazine with covers that capture the political and social upheavals of the last two decades, such as the black-on-black cover after 9/11 and the infamous Barack Obama fist-bump cartoon. Based on exclusive interviews with Mouly, Spiegelman, and a pantheon of comics artists--including Dan Clowes, Barry Blitt, Anita Kunz, and Adrian Tomine--In Love with Art is both an intimate portrait of Mouly and a rare, behind-the-scenes look at some of today s most iconic images. Through the prism of an uncommonly successful relationship, the book tells the story of one of the most remarkable artistic transformations of our time. Jeet Heer s writing has appeared in the Guardian, Slate, Boston Globe, the American Prospect, and the Virginia Quarterly Review. 139915
