"Con el inclasificable Aquí, el polifacético Richard McGuire —dibujante, especialista en animación, escritor e ilustrador de libros infantiles, diseñador de juguetes y bajista de Liquid Liquid— obtuvo el Premio a la Mejor Obra en el Festival de Angulema 2016 y se estableció como uno de los autores más influyentes en el panorama internacional del cómic. En este nuevo libro, que recoge una selección de las viñetas auxiliares publicadas en la legendaria revista The New Yorker, McGuire vuelve a demostrar su originalidad y su virtuosismo. Desde 1925, estas viñetas se han utilizado en The New Yorker para cuadrar las columnas de texto y, hace unos años, la revista empezó a asignar todas las de un número al mismo ilustrador. Pero la composición digital eliminó la necesidad de rellenar espacios, y estos dibujos cobraron mayor valor por derecho propio. Muchos artistas han contribuido a este formato tan característico, pero como ha señalado Luc Santé, Richard McGuire fue el primero, en febrero de 2005, en concebir dichas viñetas como secuencias narrativas, lo que supuso un planteamiento nuevo e innovador: imágenes engañosamente simples que, intercaladas a lo largo de las páginas de la revista, contaban una historia. Por supuesto, en manos de Richard McGuire estas secuencias son siempre una delicia: ingeniosas, sorprendentes y llenas de guiños de un humor finísimo."--

From the internationally acclaimed author of Blankets (“A triumph for the genre.”—Library Journal), a highly anticipated new graphic novel. Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth—and frailty—of their connection. At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling. From the Hardcover edition.

"Quaint, meditative and sometimes dreamy, blankets will take you straight back to your first kiss." --The Guardian Blankets is the story of a young man coming of age and finding the confidence to express his creative voice. Craig Thompson's poignant graphic memoir plays out against the backdrop of a Midwestern winterscape: finely-hewn linework draws together a portrait of small town life, a rigorously fundamentalist Christian childhood, and a lonely, emotionally mixed-up adolescence. Under an engulfing blanket of snow, Craig and Raina fall in love at winter church camp, revealing to one another their struggles with faith and their dreams of escape. Over time though, their personal demons resurface and their relationship falls apart. It's a universal story, and Thompson's vibrant brushstrokes and unique page designs make the familiar heartbreaking all over again. This groundbreaking graphic novel, winner of two Eisner and three Harvey Awards, is an eloquent portrait of adolescent yearning; first love (and first heartache); faith in crisis; and the process of moving beyond all of that. Beautifully rendered in pen and ink, Thompson has created a love story that lasts.

A common misconception is that professors who use popular culture and fantasy in the classroom have abandoned the classics, yet in a variety of contexts—high school, college freshman composition, senior seminars, literature, computer science, philosophy and politics—fantasy materials can expand and enrich an established curriculum. The new essays in this book combine analyses of popular television shows including Buffy the Vampire Slayer; such films as The Matrix, The Dark Knight and Twilight; Watchmen and other graphic novels; and video games with explanations of how best to use them in the classroom. With experience-based anecdotes and suggestions for curricula, this collection provides a valuable pedagogy of pop culture.

The response to Nancy Pearl’s surprise bestseller Book Lust was astounding: the Seattle librarian even became the model for the now-famous Librarian Action Figure. Readers everywhere welcomed Pearl’s encyclopedic but discerning filter on books worth reading, and her Rule of 50 (give a book 50 pages before deciding whether to continue; but readers over 50 must read the same number of pages as their age) became a standard MO.

David Smith está dispuesto a morir por su obra... literalmente. Gracias a un trato con la Muerte, este joven escultor consigue cumplir su gran deseo de la infancia: ser capaz de esculpir, únicamente con las manos, cualquier cosa que imagine. Pero ahora, con solo 200 días de vida por delante, decidir qué crear le está resultando más difícil de lo que pensaba. Y encontrar a su alma gemela en el último momento no va a hacerlo más sencillo. Esta es la historia de un deseo llevado más allá de los límites de la razón. Es un relato sobre los torpes y frenéticos pasos del amor incipiente. También es un retrato exuberante y urbano de la ciudad más grandiosa del mundo. Pero, por encima de todo, es un canto a esos pequeños, cálidos y humanos momentos que nos ofrece la vida cotidiana...y a las enormes fuerzas que se agitan, furiosas, bajo su superficie. Scott McCloud escribió el libro de referencia para entender cómo funciona el cómic. Ahora, se adentra en el sobrecogedor, divertido e inolvidable campo de la ficción.Título original: The Sculptor.
