New Goodies From Abrams ComicArts

Three new books from Abrams ComicArts just in: ART OF JAIME HERNANDEZ By Todd Hignite, ART IN TIME By Dan Nadel AND THE SIMPSONS FUTURAMA CROSSOVER CRISIS by Matt Groening.

This new biography/Exposé on Jaime Hernandez is amazingly comprehensive. It begins in Oxnard California, covers a massive oeuvre and continues with Jaime's current work. With TONS of giant sketches, interviews, photos and strips--not just from Jaime but including his influences- I'd say this is a definite must have for Hernandez Bros fans and comics appreciators in general.

The Brothers signing in Berkley, circa 1984.

Going back a little further in comics history is ART IN TIME: Unkown Comic Book Adventures, 1940-1980 By Picture Box editor Dan Nadel.

-The follow up to Art Out Of Time: Unkown Comics Visionaries 1900-1969- focuses on: "the immersive, intoxicating exploration of comic book worlds on paper". Many of the artists in ART IN TIME are better known for their commercial work. This collection offers a look into a darker, often more sinister side of mid-to-late-century commercial cartoonists.

Check out the rather bizarre strip from John Stanley, who was best known for scripting the Little Lulu, Melvin Monster and Nancy comic books.

This little gem doesn't need much explaining, does it?
