Pittsburgh

Frank Santoro

A moving graphic memoir about home, childhood, and family by the author of Storeyville and Pompeii.

Pittsburgh is the story of a family, and a city. Frank Santoro faces a straightforward yet heart-rending reality: His parents, once high-school sweethearts, now never speak to each other—despite working in the same building. Stuck in the middle, he tries to understand. The result is this book.

Using markers, pencils, scissors, and tape, with a variety of papers, drawing in vivid colors and exuberant lines, Santoro constructs a multi-generational retelling of their lives. Framed by his parents’ courtship and marriage, and set amid the vital but fading neighborhood streets, the pages of Pittsburgh are filled with details both quotidian and dramatic—from his childhood mishaps to his father’s trauma in Vietnam—interspersed throughout with the mute witness of the family dog, Pretzel.

Santoro, the acclaimed author of Storeyville and Pompeii, has created his masterpiece. Pittsburgh is an extraordinary reimagining of the comics form to depict the processes of memory, and a powerful, searching account of a family taking shape, falling apart, and struggling to reinvent itself, as the city around them does the same.

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).
