Top 5 Christmas Movies.

Today is Christmas Eve so here are the Top 5 Christmas Movies.
We don't like many Christmas movies since most are dramas. But here is the list of the ones we do like.

At Number 5: A Christmas Carol
We have seen a few different version of the story but this is our favorite.

At Number 4: It's A Wonderful Life
Most would have this at number but we did are bais since we don't like dramas but Jimmy Stewart was great.

At Number 3: Elf
Elf was a very funny Will Ferrell Christmas comedy there isn't munch else to say.

At Number 2: Die Hard
Die Hard is not really a "Christmas movie" but since the story is set on Christmas day we are going to count it. We like this movie more than any other movie on the list but since it a straight up Christmas movie it is not number one.

At Number 1: Home Alone
This has always been our favorite Christmas movie for as long as we can remember.

What is your favorite Christmas movie? Please comment.

Merry Christmas!

Thank You Everybody! You are the Best!

Happy Holidays! And THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us in 2011 and made it possible for a company that only published 24 titles in 2011, to have 6 of those titles land on the New York Times Hardcover Graphic Novel Bestseller list. It's humbling, and we appreciate each and everyone of of you. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Asphalt Watches

I think we all want to live in a world where the movie, Asphalt Watches gets made. You might remember the handsome Seth Scriver from his curious and enchanting Stooge Pile Petit Livre that we put out a while ago. Well, along with his friend Shayne Ehman, Seth is making an animated feature about a cross country trip. You can help by going to Indiegogo and donating. I'd like to recommend the "Zen" option. or maybe the "Custom Airbrushed Carhood" option.

Home Alone Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

After getting into an argument with his older brother Buzz, he is sent to the third floor bedroom of the house, where he wishes his family would disappear. During the night, a power outage resets the alarm clocks and causes the family to oversleep. In the confusion and rush to reach the airport on time, Kevin is left behind and the family does not realize it until they are already airborne. Once in Paris, his mother and father desperately try to book a flight home.
Meanwhile, Kevin wakes up to find the house empty and is overjoyed to find that his wish came true. He takes Buzz's life savings, practices shooting with Buzz's BB gun, jumps on the bed, watches a gangster film, and eats a large amount of junk food. However, he finds himself scared by the appearance of the Chicago Police Department called by his parents to check on him, his next door neighbor "Old Man" Marley, who was rumored to have murdered his family many years earlier, and the appearance of The Wet Bandits, Harry Lyme and Marv Merchants, who are breaking into other vacant houses on the block.

May I Direct You Over To Our Store Blog, Please.

Oh sure, here in the office, this week is easy street: cracking jokes, waiting for chocolate from printers, and drinking all the leftover booze from our office party (above).

Meanwhile, over at the Librairie D+Q, they're in the midst of the busiest week of the year. And I mean, BUSY. By last week, sales for 2011 had already increased by 15% from last year so who know where we will end up by actual years end. A year that was a banner year for them in every shape and form including hosting events with Art Spiegelman, Ben Katchor, Craig Thompson, Miranda July (below), Sheila Heti, Madeline Thien and not to mention D+Q events with Dan, Seth, Kate, Anders, and more.

In the middle of this, they're blogging away their new books and favorite books of the year. And while they're obviously not so team-D+Q in their Best of 2011 lists (note to self to talk to them about this for 2012), I can't help but beam with happiness whenever I read their blog and especially their year end lists, and look at the passion, enthusiasm and professionalism in which they sell and promote literature and art. Thanks Jason, Julia, Fiona, Chantale, Julien and Jade.

When we opened the store 4 years ago, many people thought we were completely nuts for so many reasons, but when you've been a publisher for as long as D+Q, and you visited many amazing bookstores, you can't help to daydream what you would do. Our vision was simple: a store that sold our books (natch), but sold our peers of all stripes including McSweeneys, Fantagraphics, L'Association, New Directions, Cornelius, Coach House, Picture Box, La Pasteque, Vertical, Conundrum, Koyama, Nobrow, Little Otsu, NY Review of Books and more. Kids, young adult and adult books. Prose, poetry, comics, art, how to, and more. A store to host events and workshops. A store where the new Clowes sits right next to the new Eugenides. A store where a staffer picks Joan Didion and Lynda Barry as the best of the year.

Et voila, four years later, we're still here. Merci beaucoup, Montréal! We have the best customers and the best staff in the world! Happy holidays to everyone!

Congrats, CCS!

Congrats to James Sturm, Michelle Ollie and the Center for Cartoon Studies on the amazing news that the school will be expanding into the "old post office building" in White River Junction, and will be new home to The Schulz Library that was forced to vacate the old firehouse after Hurricane Irene. I caught up with James this week, as MARKET DAY is featured in the 2011 Best American Nonrequired Reading and as usual, the man is up to a million exciting things. Love it.

Christmas Muisc.

These are some of our favorte Christmas songs enjoy and have a Merry Christmas! These are not order.

 What are your favorite Christmas music?
Merry Christmas and may the force be with you, always.

Kim, Kim and re-Kim

Guy Delisle has a blog post up about the recent death of Kim Jong-Il over at his blog. It's in French, so I did a quick/rough translation and included the images below.

"Kim Jong-Il has kicked the bucket.

Bad year for dictators, I haven't made a count but if we continue at this pace, 2011 will be a symbolic year for oppressed people of the world.

While the new Kim (around 28 years old) prepares himself for his new functions as dictator, I stumble across this little book, bought quite a long time ago in Pyongyang, that was lying around in my studio.

Inside, we find this photo. We see Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il discussing in the middle of an avenue. Great propaganda art. And this, long before the photoshop era.

Turn to the retouched shadow, the surrealist perspective or the father's gigantic tumor that disappeared as though by magic.

More surprising, even, is the son's height.

We know it, Kim Jong-il was not very tall. He sported heels and bouffant hairdos do give himself a little more volume. Despite all this, here he is at the same height as his father.

In reality, it should have looked like this:

Like we witness in the following photo.

Now it's Kim Jong-Un's turn to enter in to the family photo. (I find it hard to imagine the number of official portraits he has to put up next to the two others on all the country's walls.)

Ultimately, even if Kim-Jong-Un is a dwarf (with or without his high heels), North Korean propaganda will figure out how to raise him to the height of the situation."

All Hail Peter Birkemoe!

The Beguiling's Peter Birkemoe gets his due with a major interview today with Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter. Peter has been a major figure in comics for the past decade and a half. If running one of the best comics stores in the world wasn't enough, Peter is also responsible (along with Christopher Butcher) for making TCAF one of the premier independent comics festivals on the continent. Peter is an esteemed colleague, a good friend, and a model for anyone working in comics.

Metuchen your Christmas Spirit

It would seem that Brian Ralph is doing a signing in his hometown of Metuchen, New Jersey at The Raconteur bookstore tonight at 7:30pm. You should go because you'll get to meet his high school art teacher (focuses too much on Escher and not enough on the Ashcan school), his wrestling coach (focuses too much on Freestyle and not enough on Greco-Roman), his mother (focuses too much on Brian's posture and not enough on his hair), and the school librarian who lent Brian his first comic (hates comics). Good thing I'm Facebook friends with Josh Bayer or I never would have known about this.

The Hobbit Trailer!

Here is The Hobbit Trailer! I can't believe it is here! This is going to be best of the year next year. I don't think there is any movie not even The Avengers that can be better than The Hobbit next year!

Here is the song that Dwarfs were singing,

On social history, ragtime, and Chris Ware

I, like many, know little about Scott Joplin.  I didn't know, for instance, that he had composed operas, and certainly was not aware of Treemonisha, a work that draws on Joplin's own life experiences growing up in Arkansas part of a community of former slaves. It seems to be an opera meant more for working- and middle-class black audiences than rich European audiences, and its style (with heavy ragtime and spiritual influences) reflects that intent.

The breadth of this ambition is awe-inspiring. "It is the only opera in existence about the Reconstruction Era African-American experience written by a black man who actually lived through it. This fact alone makes it a work of tremendous significance. Further, Joplin's score is profoundly expressive and as stylistically unique as anything ever created in America." The Wall Street Journal writes about the importance of this work a century after its composition, because after extensive research by conductor and arranger Rick Benjamin (a leading interpreter of ragtime music), the orchestration has been reconstructed to reflect how it would have been performed in a 1910s theater orchestra. All this means that the new arrangement of Treemonisha, just released on CD by New World Records, is a much more historically accurate interpretation of Joplin's opera.

Oh hey, I guess it slipped my mind. Also, the CD, and its 112 pg booklet (with extensive analysis and history by the conductor/arranger Rick Benjamin) are both designed by Chris Ware. It's probably unnecessary to tell you this, but that means the Treemonisha CD is both a fascinating social history of an oft-elided part of the African-American experience, *annnd* a beautiful object. Buy it here!  

D+Q Announces Our "Digital Strategy"

As announced in today's PW Daily by Calvin Reid, this holiday season, the Drawn & Quarterly classic graphic novels LOUIS RIEL A COMIC-STRIP BIOGRAPHY and PAYING FOR IT A COMIC-STRIP BIOGRAPHY ABOUT BEING A JOHN by the award-winning and iconoclastic cartoonist Chester Brown, will each be available as ebooks via KOBO's Vox Reader, it was announced today by Peggy Burns, Associate Publisher of Marketing & Sales. Known for its astute editorial standards and high print production values, this venture marks the Montreal-based company's first foray into the digital sphere.

“Many people assumed we would never do ebooks, whereas the opposite was true. We were open to the idea, but wanted to approach it cautiously,” said Burns. “This past Fall, we had a fortuitous series of events that brought the project to the foreground. Chester voiced his desire for ebooks, CBC Canada Reads shortlisted LOUIS RIEL in its top-ten for its annual contest, and most importantly, the fellow Canadian company Kobo inquired if we would consider ebooks. Kobo’s pitch was very friendly and nonexclusive and they promote CBC Canada Reads. They understood who we are, our hesitancy and what is important to us. It all happened very organically which is how we prefer to do business.”

D+Q production manager Tracy Hurren oversaw the project and worked with Kobo to ensure that the same care and attention D+Q gives towards its print editions was in place for the ebooks. The arrangement is nonexclusive and D+Q expects to add more titles by different authors and devices throughout 2012.

Lastly, D+Q is proud to announce that the company will be splitting the net proceeds of its ebook sales equally with its authors, and is in agreement with the Writer’s Union of Canada.

“D+Q has always been an author-centric company, it is this ethos that has shaped us into who we are today,” said Chris Oliveros, D&Q’s Publisher and Editor-In-Chief. “It only seemed natural to offer the fairest proposition to our authors.”


Merry Geek Christmas!

Here are some awesome Christmas Geek pictures of our favorite movies.

Merry Christmas!

Oh Kim Jong-Il. You @#$%^(.

Perhaps you are reading the news today, and you never really knew many details about the leader of the hermit nation. And you think, huh, who is this man who penned On the Art of Cinema and On the Art of Opera? And he loved horror films? Was Friday the 13th really his favorite film? Did he really kidnap South korean filmmaker Shin Sank-ok and force the two to make a Godzilla rip-off among others? It's easy to chuckle at the outlandish antics that fed his cult of personality, but he was a dictator of epic proportions and a violator of human rights. Every single aspect of human life in this country was controlled by his repressive regime.

Of course, I'm not an expert, I've only read Guy Delisle's Pyongyang: A Journey In North Korea, an account of his time spent in the country while working as an animator for a French company.
