Tonight we’re getting ready for the Mildred Pierce release party! It starts at 7pm. Join us as we celebrate Mildred Pierce‘s fourth issue, the theme of which is “Comedy and the Grotesque.” Rumor on the street is that there will be refrshments. All the more reason to come.
And oh! As if you didn’t notice from the HUGE IMAGE on Quimbys.com of the Chris Ware print we’re selling, just to let you know, we are now selling an exclusive Quimby’s only print, designed and authorized by Chris Ware and printed by The Bird Machine. The print is of Chris’ original blueprint for our Quimby’s sign that hangs outside the shop. Click here for more details!
So! New Stuff!
ZINES & ZINE-RELATED BOOKS!
Filling the Void: Interviews About Quitting Drinking and Using (Doris Press) $4.00 – This zine is so solid it’s like it’s made out of rocks. Cindy from Doris Zine has collected seven interviews here that discuss sobering up from DIY and non-religious perspectives. A great and resourceful thing to have if you or someone you know is trying to clean up their act and is maybe feeling frustrated with traditional modes of support and process. Just a great and resourceful zine to have in general. -EF
Thai Comic Horrors vol 1 by Khun So and Krit $3.00 – Esteemed Quimby’s alumni/expat Logan just sent us this double-header of Thai pulp comics translated to English for the first time! This issue is comprised of two stories, “The Ghost That Comes to Steal Your Heart” and “Hunt For the Hell Drugs”. Hell yes, those titles are great- and would you believe the actual comics are EVEN BETTER? They are! Classic carnage with visual flair, packed full of jungle ghouls, beautiful babes and poor moral judgement. -EF

SEX & SEXY & SEX CULTURE!
I <3 Boy by J. Yatrofsky (PowerHouse) $24.95 – With an erotic softness and quiet confidence, the young, fully-nude subjects in this book exhibit a willingness to be celebrated by all for their beauty and openness. Posing in the intimacy of their own homes, often in studio apartments in Manhattan’s East Village and Lower East Side, lanky, hairless bodies are posed sensually against the minimalist backgrounds of naturally lit rooms with sparse furnishings.
