Comic Book History of Animation #1 (of 5)—Cool
Fred Van Lente (w) • Ryan Dunlavey (a) • Ryan Dunlavey (c)
The team behind IDW’S Comic Book History of Comics returns with a brand-new series! From Aardman to Zoetrope, Disney to Miyasaki, Hanna-Barbera to Pixar, and everything in between! Part One: Silent…but Deadly (Funny!) shows how the animated cartoon began with the first movies under the lawsuit-happy watch of Thomas Edison… cartoonist Winsor McCay shows how ‘toons can make you feel as well as laugh… the Fleischer Brothers revolutionize the technology of animation… and an obscure filmmaker from Kansas City named Walt Disney gets his first big break! The perfect companion piece to CBHoC, the Comic Book History of Animation focuses on the filmmakers and beloved characters of the past century and a half, and is essential for fans of the medium and “toon newbies” alike.

They say all good things must come to an end. Alas, this is also true with the World’s ONLY 200 page print-only hardcover magazine – FULL BLEED, at least this version, is coming to a close with its final volume, THE END.

Here’s just the beginning: Part two of Rolling Stone’s Gavin Edwards lost and unpublished Grant Morrison interview, The final two chapters of Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Steve Beach’s epic “The Lost Boys of U-Boat Bremen,” an epic appreciation of legendary artist George Pérez by The New York Times’ George Gene Gustines, a long interview with Cindy Whitehead, the first woman inducted into the skateboarding hall of fame, by Shelly Bond…and that’s just for starters! THE END includes more of the fine mix of fiction, interviews and comics you came to expect in the first three volumes of FULL BLEED.

Parenthesis [Top Shelf] Élodie Durand (w & a & c)
A triumph of graphic memoir, Parenthesis narrates the author’s experience with tumor-related epilepsy—losing herself, and finding herself again.

Julie is barely out of her teens when a tumor begins pressing on her brain, ushering in a new world of seizures, memory gaps, and loss of self. Suddenly, the sentence of her normal life has been interrupted by the opening of a parenthesis that may never close.

Based on the real experiences of cartoonist Élodie Durand, Parenthesis is a gripping testament of struggle, fragility, acceptance, and transformation which was deservedly awarded the Revelation Prize of the Angoulême International Comics Festival.

“In this graphic memoir, Élodie Durand tries to reconnect the threads of her memory… the resulting testimony is touching in all its simplicity… the sober and refined drawings accompany her story with a great deal of accuracy and sensitivity… the inclusion of sketches made during Durand’s convalescence adds even more strength and emotion to her black and white artistry.” — BD Gest’

Isaac Shalev & Matt Loomis (d) Peter Wocken & Lucas Mendonça (a) Peter Wocken & Soon Yi Warren (c)

Seikatsu is a competitive tile-laying game where players are vying to create the most breathtaking garden view from the perspective of their pagoda. Featuring a one-of-a-kind dual aspect tile design, players must weigh the benefits of scoring flocks of birds now, or the benefits of planting sets of flowers to be scored later. In a battle of serenity, tensions will be high as the best tile placement may also aid your neighbor.

Bullet points:
· Game design from Isaac Shalev and Matt Loomis.
· Dual-scoring tiles require you to change strategies mid-game as the board is filled.
· A mind-bending game of perspective that will have players entering a meditative state.
