Quick July Previews Notes
(I really should do these sorts of things earlier...)
p. 250, Jokes and the Unconscious is a new graphic novel illustrated by Hothead Paisan creator Diane DiMassa. DiMassa has a chaotic, energetic line and a twisted sense of humor I've always enjoyed, so I'm really glad to see her work again.
p. 302, Hard to Swallow is an excellent anthology of gay porn comics, which I briefly reviewed earlier. If you're a fan of gay porn (and who isn't) it's one to be sure to get.
p. 300, The Cartoon History of the Modern World is another of Larry Gonick's educational comics. They're all worth taking the time to look at. Not only are they funny, but they're amongst the best history texts I've ever read.
p. 310, Sidescrollers is another in Oni's generally excellent line of short, original graphic novels. It's geek humor, but as this preview shows, it's that rare thing, good geek humor.
p. 313, New Nikolai Dante book! Tsar Wars! September can't get here soon enough!
On that same page, Rosen solicits a graphic novel biography of Oprah Winfrey. Unauthorized, I'm guessing. I find this funny for no good reason. Not as funny as the Ghosts in Amityville book they're also soliciting, but still funny.
