Sequart Research & Literacy Organization’s entire line of eight books of comics scholarship is now available in revised editions featuring significantly lower cover prices.
Each of these new editions also feature revised covers and cleaner, more readable interiors.
If you haven’t explored Sequart’s overall line, or if you’d like to give your favorite book as a Christmas gift, there’s never been a better time.
Headlining these is Keeping the World Strange: A Planetary Guide, edited by Cody Walker, which has never been available outside of comics stores. It retails for $11.99 (an $8 savings over previously available versions). (Buy from Amazon or CreateSpace.)
Also deserving special note is the new Grant Morrison: The Early Years, by Timothy Callahan (with a Grant Morrison interview). This new, third edition includes a new foreword by Jason Aaron and an expanded appendix addressing Grant Morrison’s early, pre-Zenith work, including Abraxas, text stories done for DC’s U.K. annuals, 2000AD, and Doctor Who. The book retails for $15.99 ($7 cheaper than past editions). (Buy from Amazon or CreateSpace.)
The new version of Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles, by Patrick Meaney (with an extensive Grant Morrison interview), retails for $19.99 (a $7 savings). A few additional images have been added, including stills from Meaney’s documentary Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods. (Buy from Amazon or CreateSpace.)
The new version of Teenagers from the Future: Essays on the Legion of Super-Heroes, edited by Timothy Callahan (with a foreword by Matt Fraction and an afterword by Barry Lyga), retails for $19.99 (a $7 savings). (Buy from Amazon or CreateSpace.)
The new version of Improving the Foundations: Batman Begins from Comics to Screen, by Julian Darius, retails for $14.99 (a $7 savings). It includes a slightly revised text and a few additional images. (Buy from Amazon or CreateSpace.)
We know times are tough. We also know we’ve been incredibly lucky to have a loyal readership who understand the need for accessible analysis of comic books. That’s why we’ve insisted upon quality and kept in mind that every book could be someone’s introduction to thinking more seriously about comics. It’s also why we now consider it a priority to make these books more financially accessible to everyone.
Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
