Contract With God Trilogy HC

Will Eisner

Famed innovator Eisner showed the creators of modern comics what a potentially rich medium they were working with.

In particular, he used the term 'graphic novel' to sell A Contract with God (1978), a collection of interrelated comics stories about residents in a Jewish tenement section of New York.

He returned to that territory in A Life Force (1988), showing one man's uncertain progress, and in Dropsie Avenue (1995), an historical panorama of the whole neighborhood.

Printed together for the first time in this volume, the works reinforce each other beautifully.

Eisner's virtuoso art always has been admired, but his writing sometimes has been disparaged as thin and sentimental.

Over the span of these three books, though, emotions jostle and balance each other - sometimes the stories seem upbeat, sometimes fatalistic.

The characters frequently are defeated in the short term but always yearning for more than their surroundings offer.

In any case, Eisner's illustrations are superb: water drenches a man walking alone at night in a thunderstorm - a fat housewife athletically performs a 'heart attack' right after her husband has collapsed with a real one - aerial cityscapes expand - and every possible expression flickers over the characters' faces.

This is an important, wonderful book.

Tegneserier på engelsk

Velkommen til Faraos Cigarers US Comics-afdeling. Her har vi et bredt udvalg af tegneserier på engelsk.

 

 
Tegneserier på engelsk

I Faraos Cigarers US Comics-afdeling kan du finde traditionelle tegneserier med superhelte, hvor de store superhelte-forlag Marvel & DC står for det meste. Det er f.eks. superhelte som Spider-Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Deadpool, Justice League, Avengers og X-Men.

Vi har dog også yderligere nævneværdige mesterværker som Alan Moores “The Watchmen” og “Top Ten”, og ikke mindst “Kurt Busiek’s Astro City.” Vi kan også tilbyde tegneserier på engelsk med hårdkogt noir som Frank Millers “Sin City”, Ed Brubakers “Criminal”, Brian Azzarello og Eduardo Rissos “100 Bullets”. Når det gælder spændende fantasy-tegneserier, fører vi bl.a. Mike Mignolas “Hellboy”, Neil Gaimans “The Sandman”, Alan Moores “The Swamp Thing”, “Promethea” samt “The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Vi fører også  tankevækkende og dystopisk science fiction  som Rick Remenders “Black Science”, Brian K. Vaughans “Saga” og “Y, The Last Man” samt Jeff Lemires “Descender.” Endelig fører vi også grufuld horror som Robert Kirkmans “The Walking Dead” og Scott Snyders “American Vampire.”

Hvis du er til historier fra den virkelige verden (eller i nabolaget), så har vi også graphic novels med rejsedagbøger fra nær og fjern, krigsjournalistik, (u)lykkelig kærlighed og indsigtsfulde hverdagshistorier.

De fleste amerikanske tegneserier bliver udgivet i serieformat i 20 siders månedlige hæfter (også kaldet single issues), oftest med masser af reklamesider i og på størrelse med et Anders And-blad. Det er dog blevet standard, at disse hæfter bliver genoptrykt i et trade paperback-format (ca. 17x26cm) med typisk 5-6 hæfter i hver, et pænt omslag og uden reklamerne. Størstedelen af vores  tegneserier på engelsk er trade paperbacks, men der findes også flere variationer af både større og mindre paperbacks (softcover), samt en række indbundne luksus-udgivelser (hardcover eller kortere bare HC).
