The Customer is Always Wrong
by Mimi Pond

The Customer is Always Wrong by Mimi Pond

Mimi Pond’s biographical tale of her time working at an Oakland restaurant in the late 70s is authentic to be sure. It perfectly captures the chaos and comradery you'll find behind the scenes of any good eating establishment as well as the drama of love triangles mixed with crushing hangovers, drug use and bitter disillusioned co-workers.

henry & glenn forever & ever
by Tom Neely & Friends

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever: Completely Ridiculous Edition  Tom Neely

The Henry and Glenn Forever and Ever series of comics are based on the ridiculous premise that Henry Rollins—he of Black Flag/punditry fame, and Glenn Danzig, of Misfits/Danzig/ Samhain renown—are lovers wedded in domestic bliss, as well as neighbors to the satan-worshipping Hall and Oates. Intrigued yet?

Chicago
by Glenn Head

Chicago: A Comix Memoir Glenn Head

Chicago is the true story—a comix memoir, if you will—of a young comix artist (gonna spell it 'comics' from here on out) struggling to survive in, you guessed it, Chicago. Head captures that late 70s look and feel  of the city and scene in this open and honest autobiography. He may have gone a little nuts, and this certainly wasn't a story easy to tell.

Tetris: The Games People Play by Box Brown
Box Brown lays this all out for us in glorious black, white and yellow. His concise storytelling and simple line art keep things moving and compelling and gives the players in the story just enough personality to inspire either empathy or disdain depending on their actions and motives.

Hostage by Guy Delisle [Drawn & Quarterly]

Hostage by Guy DelisleGuy Delisle recounts Doctor’s Without Borders administrator Christophe André's 1997 kidnapping and confinement in Chechnya. Snatched at gunpoint in the middle of the night and driven over the border from Ingushetia, André was held for months without knowing who his captors where or if help was on the way. Delisle captures the monotony and uncertainty panel by panel. While André's captors were reasonably humane, given the circumstances, their sloppiness eventually allowed him to escape. It’s a page turner delivered in a simple narrative and drawing style.  

Tenements, Towers & Trash: An Unconventional Illustrated History of New York City by Julia Wertz [Black Dog & Leventhal]

Julia Wertz provides an exhaustive (or as exhaustive as one human possibly can) illustrated tour of New York City, showing a side the tourists seldom see. Ignoring the major landmarks, Wertz provides detailed drawings of buildings, blocks and corners of the city over the course of a century. She fills in the landscape with stories of the lesser known eccentrics of the millions who have called the Big Apple home. A great book for any city lover, fan of architecture, urban planning or just good art.
