(W) Leonie Bischoff (A / CA) Leonie Bischoff
In lithe, sensuous colored pencils, this international
prize-winning, impressionistic graphic biography
traces the life, the affairs, and the artistic process of
Ana s Nin, one of the best-known authors of women's
erotica in the 1920s and '30s.
Ana s Nin, the author of works such as Delta of Venus and House
of Incest, is the patron saint of taboo-breaking pop culture sexual
iconoclasts. Not only is she an inspiration for contemporary figures
such as Madonna, but her oeuvre, which encompasses erotica,
autobiography, essays, short fiction, novels, and much more, has
been adapted into film (Henry and June), television (Little Bird),
and other media.
The cartoonist Léonie Bischoff traces the life of the prolific
writer in this lushly colored graphic novel. It begins with Nin struggling
to reconcile the man she married (who had artistic aspirations)
with the banker she finds herself living with in the Parisian
suburbs. Soon, her obsession with June Miller leads to inspiration. Nin's life and
art, the truth and fiction, are further intertwined as she recounts her many sexual
liaisons including those with Henry Miller (whom she and her husband subsidize
so he can write the controversial Tropic of Cancer), her psychoanalysts, and even
her father. Although Bischoff's drawing is largely representational, she occasionally
depicts Nin's sexual experiences in scenes as surreal as Nin's own written portrayal
of them.

(W) Marcello Quintanilha (A / CA) Marcello Quintanilha
A gripping story about a family pushed to the brink.
This English language debut was the 2022 "Fauve d'Or"
winner at the 2022 Angoulême Comics Festival.
Márcia is a nurse in a hospital near Rio and lives in a favela with her
boyfriend, Aluisio, and her daughter, Jaqueline, whom she had very
young with another man. Jaqueline, a troubled young adult, makes
life difficult for her mother and Aluisio and rebelliously hangs out
with members of a neighborhood gang, leading to violent altercations
between mother and daughter. The situation degenerates even
more when Jaqueline is arrested. Márcia and Aluisio, distraught,
realize that Jaqueline is in deeper trouble than they ever thought.
Marcello Quintanilha's first English-language graphic novel
is a tour de force – a tightly wound drama filled with masterful
suspense and a deep love for family and character.
Marcello Quintanilha was born in 1971 outside Rio de Janeiro. His first graphic
novel, Tungsteno, published in 2015, was adapted for film by director Heitor Dhalia.
He has lived in Barcelona since 2002.

(W) Maria Bamford (A / CA) Scott Marvel Cassidy
Fans of Maria Bamford's acclaimed quasi-autobiographical Lady Dynamite Netflix series already know of her romance with LA painter Scott Marvel Cassidy, as well as her droll pug sidekicks Blueberry and Bert. Now the story has been recounted in the graphic novella Hogbook and Lazer Eyes, written by Bamford/Cassidy, drawn by Cassidy, and all told by the rescue dogs they've adopted.
For those unfamiliar with the story, newly single fortysomethings Maria Bamford and Scott Cassidy each signed up on the dating site OkCupid, under the respective usernames "Hogbook" and "Lazer Eyes." They went on a date, and then another, and soon, despite a history of Bipolar II disorder and unhealthy relationships for each of them, they fell in love and were married in 2015. We view all of this through the prism of their pug housemates, including Blueberry and Bert (who has an unnatural obsession with Michael Flatley of "Riverdance" fame), and the elderly bonded pair Betty and Arnold (who recount their star turn as interplanetary canine scientists in the second season of Lady Dynamite).
Cassidy's fine art training translates with ease into graphic storytelling, with a naturalistic illustrative style that is a pitch-perfect match for Bamford's comic timing, making Hogbook and Lazer Eyes a beautifully illustrated love story, told by some incredibly charming pugs.
Scott Marvel Cassidy is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts whose work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and elsewhere.
Maria Bamford is a writer, actor, and stand-up comedian. They live in Los Angeles, CA.

(W) Daria Tessler (A / CA) Daria Tessler
An absurdist, psychedelic crime fantasy / graphic
novella from an acclaimed artist and printmaker.
The Astounding Magnus has been hypnotizing audiences at the Feedbag
cocktail bar with his resplendent dancing dog act, Salome, and
her "Serpentine Dance of the Seven Veils." Yet despite his success, the
pearl of life has lost its luster for Magnus. He visits the psychologist, Dr.
Silkini, who promises to massage Magnus's id into a higher dimension:
the pearly gates of full life satisfaction. Meanwhile, Salome's
crowd-pleasing performances have attracted unwanted attention
from sinister forces who want to know the dog's secret.
Daria Tessler's new graphic novella, Salome's Last Dance, showcases
her phenomenal talent for incorporating elements of collage
and pen-and-ink illustration to create a beautifully phantasmagoric
experience under the guise of an absurdist, psychedelic fantasy
(including an extended visual tour de force depicting a hallucinogenic
tea trip), one that favorably compares to Yellow Submarine or
the comics of Jim Woodring. Tessler's rich ear for language and sharp sense of humor
also liven every inventively stunning page of Salome's Last Dance.
Born in Finland, Daria Tessler is a cartoonist and printmaker based in Portland,
OR. Her books include Cult of the Ibis, Loop of the Sun, and Music of Changes. She
also creates silkscreen prints, stationary, and more that can be found on her website

(W) Nuria Tamarit (A / CA) Nuria Tamarit
Princess Mononoke meets Jack London in this gritty,
ecofeminist adventure.
Fleeing the fires of her war-torn homeland, a young woman travels
to the New World in search of gold to rebuild her life. In this strange,
lawless land, Joana encounters friends (the kind Native women Tala
and Opa), foes (the cruel gold hunter Matwei and his men), and an
unexpected traveling companion who may just be her good luck
charm – and amidst the icy reaches of the wilderness, a fearsome
fantastical beast lurks in the shadows.
The English debut of Spanish cartoonist and illustrator N ria
Tamarit, Daughters of Snow and Cinders conjures the awesome natural
beauty of the frozen north in vibrant color. A rugged adventure
story with two strong young women at its heart, this graphic novel
offers a poignant message about the urgent need for humanity to
overcome our greed and base impulses to be good stewards of the
world in which we live and depend on.
N ria Tamarit is an illustrator and comic artist based in Valencia. Her graphic world
is marked by fantastical elements, voluptuous plant forms, dreamy creatures, and
powerful female characters. Her previous books include Two Coins (Dos Monedas,
2019, winner of the first València Graphic Novel Award), Giantess (Géante, 2020, with
Jean-Christophe Deveney), and Season of the Witch (2020, with Matt Ralphs.

(W) Justin Gradin (A / CA) Justin Gradin
Justin Gradin's stunning debut graphic novel Mystic Debris and its cast of quixotics exist in a comics continuum with Gary Panter's Jimbo, Mark Beyer's Amy and Jordan, and Marc Bell's Shrimpy and Paul. Whizbang is a metalhead whose band, Fascinator, has left him for stardom. His wife, Planchette, has left with their newborn baby. He leaves himself for a shimmy up the astral projector stripper pole, to hang with cosmic dust bunnies in a quest for enlightenment, or at least in a quest to avoid a job at the door factory.
