Monster Graphic Novel Book Excerpt:

A labyrinth of secrets, revenge, sex, and manipulation come to life in this graphic novel adaptation of a “surprising and complex story of evil” (People) by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman. Two separate murders, strikingly similar in their grisly particulars, bring psychologist Alex Delaware and LAPD detective Milo Sturgis together once again to pool their crime-solving skills in the hunt for a homicidal maniac. But they’re shocked to discover that another deranged murderer may be their best chance of cracking the case. Ardis Peake has been locked away in an asylum for the criminally insane for the last sixteen years, ever since he committed the horrifying massacre as a teenager that made him infamous—and earned him the nickname “Monster.” A pariah even among his fellow inmates, Peake is a lost cause to most of his doctors, and only staff psychologist Claire Argent took a keen interest in treating the caged killer—until she turned up brutally slain in the trunk of her car. It is a death made all the more disturbing by the fact that it was seemingly predicted by Monster. While Milo searches for a connection between the killing of a struggling actor and Dr. Argent’s nearly identical murder, Alex wonders what spurred the reportedly shy psychologist’s intense fascination with the dangerously insane. But Claire Argent’s personal life proves as barren as the empty home she left behind, and neither her ex-husband nor her colleagues can fill in the cryptic blanks. Only Ardis Peake, whose barely functioning mind lies buried deep in psychosis, seems somehow inexplicably linked to the world from which he’s sealed off. And when he foresees another violent double slaying, Alex and Milo fear that their only hope of finding the truth—and stopping the bloodshed—may be to follow a strange and menacing path into the dark heart and twisted psyche of a madman.

Monstrous Women in Comics Book Excerpt:

Contributions by Novia Shih-Shan Chen, Elizabeth Rae Coody, Keri Crist-Wagner, Sara Durazo-DeMoss, Charlotte Johanne Fabricius, Ayanni C. Hanna, Christina M. Knopf, Tomoko Kuribayashi, Samantha Langsdale, Jeannie Ludlow, Marcela Murillo, Sho Ogawa, Pauline J. Reynolds, Stefanie Snider, J. Richard Stevens, Justin Wigard, Daniel F. Yezbick, and Jing Zhang Monsters seem to be everywhere these days, in popular shows on television, in award-winning novels, and again and again in Hollywood blockbusters. They are figures that lurk in the margins and so, by contrast, help to illuminate the center—the embodiment of abnormality that summons the definition of normalcy by virtue of everything they are not. Samantha Langsdale and Elizabeth Rae Coody’s edited volume explores the coding of woman as monstrous and how the monster as dangerously evocative of women/femininity/the female is exacerbated by the intersection of gender with sexuality, race, nationality, and disability. To analyze monstrous women is not only to examine comics, but also to witness how those constructions correspond to women’s real material experiences. Each section takes a critical look at the cultural context surrounding varied monstrous voices: embodiment, maternity, childhood, power, and performance. Featured are essays on such comics as Faith, Monstress, Bitch Planet, and Batgirl and such characters as Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman. This volume probes into the patriarchal contexts wherein men are assumed to be representative of the normative, universal subject, such that women frequently become monsters.

Monster Book Excerpt:

Der "Faust" des Comic-Altmeisters Barry Windsor-Smith 35 Jahre der Entstehung. Die wohl am meisten erwartete Graphic Novel unserer Zeit: MONSTER. Eine 360-seitige Tour de Force des visuellen Erzählens. Teils Familiendrama, teils Thriller, teils metaphysische Reise – ein intimes Porträt von Individuen, die darum kämpfen, ihr Leben zurückzuerobern. Eine gewaltige politische Odyssee, die sich über zwei Generationen amerikanischer Geschichte erstreckt. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1964. Bailey ahnt nicht, dass er gerade im Begriff ist, sein tragisches Schicksal zu besiegeln, als er ein Rekrutierungsbüro der US-Armee betritt. Verschlossen, beschädigt, unschuldig – auf der Suche nach einer Vergangenheit und Zukunft zugleich. Kurzum: Bobby ist der perfekte Kandidat für ein geheimes Experiment der US-Regierung ... die entsetzliche, gottlose Fortsetzung eines Programms für Genetik, das fast 20 Jahre zuvor in den letzten Tagen des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Nazi-Deutschland seinen Anfang fand. Sergeant McFarland, Baileys einziger Verbündeter und Beschützer, greift ein, als eine Kette von Ereignissen in Gang gesetzt wird, die sich der Kontrolle aller Beteiligten entreißt. Während sich die Monster vermehren – ob real oder metaphorisch – münzt diese Geschichte in einem Crescendo der moralischen Abrechnung. Monsters trägt Barry Windsor-Smiths (CONAN DER BARBAR, RED SONJA) Handschrift tadelloser Feder- und Tuschetechnik. Die visuelle Erzählung ist mit ihrer Sensibilität für Gestik und Komposition das wohl anspruchsvollste Werk in der Karriere des Windsor-Smiths. Wir stoßen auf Passagen von herzzerreißender Zärtlichkeit, von unerträglichem Schmerz ... von Erlösung und Aufopferung ... von verheerender Gewalt – eine der wohl intensivsten Graphic Novels, die jemals gezeichnet wurden.

Monster on the Hill Book Excerpt:

Top Shelf is proud to announce the arrival of Rob Harrell, creator of the syndicated comic strip Big Top, and his first graphic novel series, Monster on the Hill. In a fantastical 1860s England, every quiet little township is terrorized by a ferocious monster — much to the townsfolk's delight! Each town's unique monster is a source of local pride, not to mention tourism. Each town, that is... except for one. Unfortunately, for the people of Stoker-on-Avon, their monster isn't quite as impressive. In fact, he's a little down in the dumps. Can the morose Rayburn get a monstrous makeover and become a proper horror? It's up to the eccentric Dr. Charles Wilkie and plucky street urchin Timothy to get him up to snuff, before a greater threat turns the whole town to kindling! Monsters of all ages are sure to enjoy this tale about life's challenges, the power of friendship, and creative redemption, packed with epic battles and plenty of wild beasts! "Really fun, goofy, extremely silly fantasy for readers of all ages, crying out for reviewers and critics to make appalling puns of the 'monstrously good' variety." -- Neil Gaiman
