Berkeley Breathed (w & a & c)
Bloom County: The Complete Library, Volume Three collects every strip from July 1984 through February 1986. Many fondly remembered strips are in this volume, including the classic 1984 presidential elections featuring possibly the finest running mates ever for such a campaign: Opus and Bill the Cat. Plus a cornucopia of ingenious satire featuring the rest of the Bloom County cast: Steve Dallas, Mio, Binkley, Oliver, Cutter John, and all the rest. Additionally, this volume contains many insightful, biting, and downright hysterical annotations by Berkeley Breathed as he comments on his strips in his own uniquely irreverent way. Context pages, for perspective, are sprinkled throughout the book.

Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein
Dick Briefer (w & a & c)
The first volume in Yoe Book’s thrilling new series, “The Chilling Archives of Horror,” fittingly features the first and foremost maniacal monster of all time… Frankenstein! Dick Briefer is one of the seminal artists who worked with Will Eisner on some of the very first comic books. Dick Briefer is as cool as weird cartoonists Fletcher Hanks, Basil Wolverton, Boody Rogers, EC horror comics, and classic Frankenstein movies all rolled into one! The large-format book lovingly reproduces a monstrous number of stories from the original 1940s and ’50s comic books. The stories are fascinatingly supplemented by an insightful introduction by Eisner-Award winner Craig Yoe, with rare Dick Briefer photos and letters, original art, drawings by Alex Toth inspired by Briefer’s Frankenstein—and much more!
