New Stuff This Week


Optic Nerve #14 by Adrian Tomine (D&Q) $6.95 – Optic Nerve 14 brings Adrian Tomine’s multifaceted, expressive cartooning to a new peak with two stories and a bonus autobiographical strip. “Killing and Dying” is about a father’s struggles to be supportive: it centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy. “Intruders” depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life by revisiting places he once knew.

The Bloodiest Thing That Ever Happened In Front Of A Camera: Conservative Politics, ‘Porno Chic’ and Snuff by Stephen Milligen (HeadPress) $21.95 – In the early 1970s, outrageous claims were made of a new blood-spattered cinematic extreme. This was the legend of the ‘snuff movie’, which promoted the inhuman notion that a woman had been murdered to satisfy the sexual appetite of a jaded public. The story was produced by a kind of madness incarnate, but it reflected the desperation of America in cultural turmoil. ‘Snuff’ was a backlash against the naïve liberalism of the counterculture, embraced by people who preferred to believe the worst about their society. Once unleashed the concept was embraced and manipulated by the tabloid media and a variety of political and social crusaders, each using it to further their own cause. Brutal, evil, ghastly beyond belief, snuff became an iconic urban legend. This book is the true, startling and hideously exploitative history of that legend and how it was created.

The Dope Game – Misadventures of Fat Cat & Pappy Mason by Seth Ferranti $15.00 – Fat Cat and Pappy Mason are the most infamous and legendary figures out of New York’s crack era. A time that massively influenced rap culture and led to the ghetto icons becoming mythical figures in hip-hop’s lyrical lore. Not only did the street stars inspire rappers like Run DMC, LL Cool J and 50 Cent with their styles, attitudes and swagger, they set the tone for a generation of hustlers, gun thugs and drug barons, who tried to live up to the hype and standard of violence these street legends set, with their vicious and brutal foray into the drug game that transformed the black underworld as Uzi-toting drug thugs in bulletproof vests, Timberlands and BMW’s became the norm. This book details Fat Cat and Pappy Mason’s story chronicling their rise and fall in the annals of gangster lore. Both drug lords are imprisoned for life, due to their crimes and exploits, but their legends live on in hip-hop and popular culture. Written by noted true crime historian, Seth Ferranti.
