Walt Kelly’s Peter Wheat: the Complete Series Volume 2 is coming soon!

Coming Summer 2018, it's Peter Wheat!

Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume Two; ISBN 978-1-61345-155-7; $39.99; paperback 192 pages; all color; All art and script by Walt Kelly; reprints issues 15-25 of the Peter Wheat comic books; in-depth essay to introduce the book.  Special "by order only" Diamond edition, hardcover with endpapers, printed laminated cover and dustjacket, to fit into your library with Hermes Press' Walt Kelly's Pogo The Complete Dell Comics Collection; ISBN 978-1- 61345-156- 4;  $60.
 
Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults.  The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely rare and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity.  Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a sixteen page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread.  The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets, and later The Wizard.
 
Continuing in their quest to reprint the rare and never before collected Peter Wheat, Hermes Press is proud to announce Volume 2 is in the works! Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume Two picks up where Volume One left off, starting with Issue #15 and continuing to Issue #25! Dragonel and Peter Wheat have just escaped from the Hornets and are exiled from the castle – they must now survive in the forest until the Hornet Knights are defeated!

Announcing Ron Goulart's International Cheesecake: Good Girl Comics Around the World

For immediate release:

International Cheesecake: Good Girl Comics Around the World by Ron Goulart; 9.25 x 12.25 inches; full color; hardcover book; printed laminated cover; endpapers; over 400 illustrations; July 2018; $60; 240 pages; ISBN 978-1-61345-151-9.
 


Internationally renowned comics historian Ron Goulart and publisher Hermes Press present International Cheesecake: Good Girl Comics Around the World! Goulart is known for his writings on the pulps, comics, newspaper strips as well as having written Good Girl Art, which specifically focused on artists in the United States. This all new art book takes the reader on a journey all throughout the world, from Argentina (Arturo & Louis Cazeneuve, The Flame, Aquaman) to Italy (Enzo Magi, The Blonde Panther).  It features art by Rene Pellarin (Durga Rani: Reine des Jungles), a sexy “Queen of the Jungle” and as its title make clear surveys artists of the feminine form all over the world.
 
Beautiful women abound in this book— from the blatantly erotic to the traditional peek-a-boo that cheesecake is known for. Goulart covers it all including, for instance Italian artist Mile Manara, who drew Click, a comic about “a woman who transforms into a nymphomaniac when a button is pressed.”
 
Goulart discusses both the stylistic choices of many of the artists as well as including historical background of both the comics and the men (and women) behind the pencils and inks.
 
This tome explores artists from all over the world, and includes original art from a large selection of artists, as well as a striking cover of Ghita by Frank Thorne. Don’t miss out!
