Market Monday Picks of the Week: March 12, 2014 New Releases

Book of the Week

Stranger Than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970-2013 by M.K. Brown

One of the funniest cartoonists of the last four decades, M.K. Brown has accumulated a body of work long savored by aficionados but never comprehensively collected — until now. Stranger Than Life is the first retrospective collection of Brown’s cartoons and comic strips from the National Lampoon from 1972-1981, as well as such other magazines as Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, and Playboy; and her comics from underground publications like Arcade, Wimmin’s Comics, Young Lust, and Twisted Sisters. Brown satirizes suburban anxiety and ennui by turning it upside-down and sideways, and her slightly grotesque yet lovable characters are perfectly captured in her restless pen line and delicate jewel-tone watercolors.

Collection of the Week

Amazing Agent Luna Omnibus 4 (vol. 8 & 9) TP, co-written by Christina Weir, art by Shiei

Luna’s control agent, Jennifer Kajiwara, is given an ultimatum by her superiors at the Agency. If Luna fails in her newest mission, Project Luna will be terminated - permanently. As Luna delves deeper into the shadowy organization known as Knightfall, what she learns may not only derail her mission, but it could tear apart her makeshift family, and send her down a dark path from which she may never return. This omnibus edition collects Volumes 8 and 9 of Amazing Agent Luna, Seven Seas’ premier shoujo manga series that blends high school romance with super spy action. It directly ties in with events that occurred in the two-volume Amazing Agent Jennifer prequel, but can be read independently.
