Hey Art Comix Fans! Have we got a deal for you... not one but TWO brand-new books for your enjoyment have arrived here at The Beguiling safe & sound. It's Marc Bell's new works collection HOT POTATOE from Drawn & Quarterly, and Line Gamache's POOF! from Conundrum Press.
Hot Potatoe is, as D&Q describes it, "Part art monograph, part comics collection, HOT POTATOE is filled with mixed media cardboard constructions, watercoloured drawings, altered found texts and Bell’s most intense, dizzying comics from the contemporary avant-garde comics anthologies – Kramers Ergot and The Ganzfeld." We were supposed to have received our orders of this last week, but due to a shipping snafu we didn't Quite get'em. They are in-stock now, though, and ready for purchase. $44.95, main floor.
Meanwhile, POOF! is Line Gamache's follow-up to the acclaimed "Hello, Me Pretty!" from Conundrum. Gamache is a Quebecois visual artist and underground cartoonist, and her newest work is an epic artist's saga about inspiration and the creative process. $15, main floor.
