Werewolf Jones & Sons
Deluxe Summer Fun Annual
Werewolf Jones, drugged up to his eyeballs, believes he is the world's greatest father, which is the most far-from-the-truth, deluded thought ever thought by any thinker. Parents can learn a lot about what NOT to do as a guardian by observing as Werewolf Jones deals with bullying, his own inebriation and sex addiction, his children's blossoming sexuality, running out of alcohol in a recession, and coping with the kids when he “wasn't meant to be responsible for the little fuckers tonight.”
Monica is a series of interconnected narratives that collectively tell the life story — actually, stories — of its title character. Clowes calls upon a lifetime of inspiration to create the most complex and per - sonal graphic novel of his distinguished career. Rich with visual detail, an impeccable ear for language and dialogue, and thrilling twists, Monica is a multilayered masterpiece in comics form that alludes to many of the genres that have defined the medium — war, romance, horror, crime, the supernatural, etc. — but in a mysterious, uncategorizable, and quintessentially Clowesian way that rewards multiple readings.

Two Years in the Oil Sands
Before there was Kate Beaton, New York Times bestselling cartoonist of Hark! A Vagrant, there was Katie Beaton of the Cape Breton Beatons, specifically Mabou, a tight-knit seaside community where the lobster is as abundant as beaches, fiddles, and Gaelic folk songs. With the singular goal of paying off her student loans, Katie heads out west to take advantage of Alberta’s oil rush—part of the long tradition of East Coasters who seek gainful employment elsewhere when they can’t find it in the homeland they love so much. Katie encounters the harsh reality of life in the oil sands, where trauma is an everyday occurrence yet is never discussed.

The year is 1989 and twenty-three-year-old Doucet is flying to France to meet with a soldier.

Born in 1952, Putin grew up idealizing the KGB, and he became a member of its ranks by early adulthood. Cunningham posits that the speed with which Putin advanced politically was a reflection of the KGB’s need to cement their control of the Russian political system after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. Since Boris Yeltsin appointed him to the presidency in 2000, Putin has annexed Crimea, rolled back democratic reforms, and led a life of luxury, all the while fostering a cult of personality. In Putin's Russia, Cunningham situates the contentious leader in an analytical framework that is at times hilarious and always compelling.
«Ein denkender Blumentopf, eine Casio-Echse oder eine Augapfel-Hängematte: ‹Cadavre exquis› heisst das lustvolle Spiel mit gefaltetem Papier, das einst die Surrealist*innen spielten. Mehrere Personen konstruieren zusammen eine Zeichnung, ohne dass die Mitspieler*innen den jeweils vorhergehenden Teil der Arbeit sehen. Wir falten das Papier auf und amüsieren uns über den kollektiven Nonsens. Kurator Hans Ulrich Obrist hat dieses Spiel in den letzten Jahren immer wieder gespielt — mit Dan Graham, Katharina Grosse, Pippilotti Rist, Gerhard Richter und vielen mehr. So sind an die 200 solcher Scribbles entstanden. Das Buch zelebriert die Handzeichnung in Zeiten von Voice Messages. Und vor allem ist es ein Aufruf, nicht nur die Zeichnungen anzuschauen, sondern es selbst zu tun. Zeichnen, falten, zeichnen, falten, zeichnen, falten!» — David Glanzmann, Museum im Bellpark, Kriens
