John Stanley Library: Thirteen Going on Eighteen HC
Preis: 22,95 Euro
In the early to mid-1960s, John Stanley turned his attentions to drawing and writing his own series, specifically Melvin Monster, Around the Block with Dunc and Loo, Kookie, and the most interesting of these titles, Thirteen Going on Eighteen, rather than working with already established licensed characters he is most well known for such as Little Lulu. D+Q has embarked on an archival series of Stanley’s comics including Melvin Monster, Around the Block with Dunc and Loo, Kookie and Thirteen Going on Eighteen. Thirteen Going on Eighteen focuses on the friendship and rivalry of two teenage girls, Val and Judy. Each comic is a darkly hilarious look at the social maneuverings and betrayals of the teen set. Stanley’s stripped down approach perfectly captures the fever pitch of teenage years. He creates a teenage sit-com and turns it into an anguished character study.(D&Q)

Mein Lesetipp für diese Woche:

Oishinbo: Pub Food TP
Preis: 12,95 Euro
A quest for the ultimate menu! R to L (Japanese Style). "Izakaya--Pub Food"Izakaya occupy the same vital space in the Japanese culinary landscape as tapas bars in Spain or tavernas in Greece. Unpretentious, frequently boisterous, they're places to meet with friends or business partners to unwind over drinks and small dishes that range from hearty standards to refined innovations. In this volume of Oishinbo, Yamaoka and Kurita investigate classic izakaya foods such as edamame and yakitori, devise new dishes to add to the menu of an old shop, and discover how the concept of "play" is essential to the enjoyment of food. As part of the celebrations for its 100th anniversary, the publishers of the TMzai News have commissioned the creation of the "Ultimate Menu," a model meal embodying the pinnacle of Japanese cuisine. This all-important task has been entrusted to journalist Yamaoka ShirM, an inveterate cynic who possesses no initiative--but also an incredibly refined palate and an encyclopedic knowledge of food. Each volume of Oishinbo follows Yamaoka and his colleagues through another adventure on their quest for the Ultimate Menu. Now, the highlights from the hundred-plus volume series have been selected and compiled into A la Carte editions: bite-sized chunks of story arranged by subject that add up to a full-course manga meal!(Viz Media)
