OUR LATEST ISSUE!
THE COMPLEAT MOSCOW CALLING
by José Alaniz!
The Compleat Moscow Calling
Paperback – February 24, 2023
“Both wonderful and wonderfully demented. Also makes me strangely nostalgic.”
Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook and Absurdistan
"The Compleat Moscow Calling makes for quite the culture shock with its tale of a Mexican-American's adventures in pre- Putin Russia. Remarkable, multilingual- a sequential arts achievement!"
Rodriguez, creator of El Peso Hero
"Treat yourself to José Alaniz's idiosyncratic comics created in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. With a journalist's eye and a cartoonist's wit, he spins grand tales that interweave a talking bat and a motorcycle-riding Baba Yaga amongst his many other characters. Taking inspiration from such divergent sources as Dostoevsky, The Clash and Sal Buscema, Alaniz adroitly mixes fact and fantasy to serve up an entertaining visual Molotov cocktail. Heed the call!"
Javier Hernandez, creator of the El Muerto graphic novel series
Black Representation in
the World of Animation
"While mesmerized by ink-lined cells shaking to their own rhythm and beat, Darius Gainer has written a long overdue text chronicling an obscure field that is, as all aspects of Black history are, joyously and quintessentially American."
Tim Fielder author of INFINITUM: An Afrofuturist Tale
“Gainer's work is painfully necessary and brilliantly articulated. With the proliferation of animated images representing people of color, a text of this nature is vital and Gainer rises to the task.”
John Jennings Professor of Media & Cultural Studies at UC Riverside & Eisner Award Winning Genius!
