Acclaimed cartoonist Dylan Horrocks returns with a long-awaited new graphic novel, the first since his perennial classic, 1998’s Hicksville. Cartoonist Sam Zabel hasn’t drawn a comic in years. Stuck in a nightmare of creative block and despair, Sam spends his days writing superhero stories for a large American comics publisher and staring at a blank piece of paper, unable to draw a single line. Then one day he finds a mysterious old comic book set on Mars and is suddenly thrown headlong into a wild, fantastic journey through centuries of comics, stories, and imaginary worlds. Accompanied by a young webcomic creator named Alice and an enigmatic schoolgirl with rocket boots and a bag full of comics, Sam goes in search of the Magic Pen, encountering sex-crazed aliens, medieval monks, pirates, pixies and ― of course ― cartoonists. Funny, erotic, and thoughtful, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen explores the pleasures, dangers, and moral consequences of fantasy.

‘With the arrival of the second volume of Tell You What, the sum total of New Zealand non-fiction anthologies damn near doubles,’ noted the Sunday Star-Times when they picked up last year’s edition. Well, we thought, let’s damn near triple it. Because we’ve discovered that New Zealanders love their true stories. Last year’s Tell You What was ‘quite a ride . . . a gripping, thought provoking and inspiring reminder of how much talent is out there’ (KiaOra), featuring ‘some of New Zealand’s best writers, covering subjects like bullies, Barbies, girl bands and grandads’ (The Australian Women’s Weekly). ‘Take it and read it, as, one by one, each writer tells us their what’ wrote John Campbell in the foreword. And this year? Third time lucky we say. The talent is assembling. The stories are rolling in. The 2017 edition of Tell You What once again promises an intellectually stimulating summer for New Zealanders up and down the country.

In 1976, a fledgling magazine held forth the the idea that comics could be art. In 2016, comics intended for an adult readership are reviewed favorably in the New York Times, enjoy panels devoted to them at Book Expo America, and sell in bookstores comparable to prose efforts of similar weight and intent. We Told You So: Comics as Art is an oral history about Fantagraphics Books’ key role in helping build and shape an art movement around a discredited, ignored and fading expression of Americana. It includes appearances by Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, Harlan Ellison, Stan Lee, Daniel Clowes, Frank Miller, and more.

Katherine Mansfield is a literary giant in New Zealand-but she had to leave the country to become one. She wrote, 'Oh to be a writer, a real writer.' And a real writer she was, until she died at age 34 of tuberculosis. The only writer Virginia Woolf was jealous of, Mansfield hung out with the modernists, lost her brother in World War I, dabbled in Alistair Crowley's druggy occult gatherings and spent her last days in a Fontainebleu commune with Olgivanna, Frank Lloyd Wright's future wife. She was as famous for her letters and diaries as for her short stories. Sarah Laing wanted to be a real writer, too. A writer as famous as Katherine Mansfield, but not as tortured. Mansfield and Me charts her journey towards publication and parenthood against Mansfield's dramatic story, set in London, Paris, New York and New Zealand. Part memoir, part biography, part fantasy, it examines how our lives connect to those of our personal heroes. Sarah Laing's gorgeous, playful drawings and self-deprecating humour lightly mask a complex meditation on writing, celebrity and the conscious construction of self. A very New Zealand coming-of-age story: brilliant, funny, thoughtful and smart. - Dylan Horrocks, author of Hicksville and Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen.
