Publisher: Fantagraphics Books
Category: Comics & Graphic Novels
One of the funniest cartoonists of the last four decades, M.K. Brown has accumulated a body of work long savored by aficionados but never comprehensively collected ― until now. Stranger Than Life is the first retrospective collection of Brown's cartoons and comic strips from the National Lampoon from 1972-1981, as well as such other magazines as Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, andPlayboy; and her comics from underground publications like Arcade, Wimmin's Comics, Young Lust, andTwisted Sisters. In these pages: Read instructions for the use of glue, making a pair of pants, home auto repair, coping with chainsaw massacres, and jackknifing your big rig. Travel the globe to witness the giant bananas of Maui, strange sightings in Guatemala, camel races, and a "Saga of the Frozen North." Learn about love 'round the world, among eccentric suburbanites, and in a "Condensed Gothic" romance. Meet Virginia Spears Ngodátu, who (with a bit of a name change) would go on to star in "Dr. Janice N!Godatu," Brown's series of animated shorts that appeared on The Tracy Ullman Showalongside the first incarnation of The Simpsons. Aliens, old people, pilgrims, mermen, monitor lizards, tiny floating muggers and other weirdos feature in Brown's side-splitting single-panel gag strips. Brown's cartoons combine a penchant for the absurd with the gimlet observational eye of Roz Chast. Brown satirizes suburban anxiety and ennui by turning it upside-down and sideways, and her slightly grotesque yet lovable characters are perfectly captured in her restless pen line and delicate jewel-tone watercolors.

He was the author of 173 books, translated into over thirty languages. More films were made from his books than any other twentieth century writer, and in the 1920s a quarter of all books read in England were written by him. Edgar Wallace, the illegitimate son of a travelling actress, rose from poverty in Victorian England to become the most popular author in the world and a global celebrity of his age. He scooped the signing of the Boer War peace treaty when working as a war correspondent, before achieving success as a film director and playwright. At the height of his success, he was earning a vast fortune, but the money went out as fast as it came in. Famous for his thrillers, with their fantastic plots, in many ways Wallace did not write his most exciting story: he lived it. ‘It is impossible not to be thrilled by Edgar Wallace’, said the blurb on Wallace’s books. Indeed, it is impossible not to be thrilled by his rags-to-riches story, told for the first time in Stranger than Fiction.

This is a collection of previously published books, which may also be purchased separately.
But this much is certain: It is a story in which fact is stranger than fiction, the
charac- ers larger than life. Even by today's expansive Hollywood tandards, a
screenwriter might be ashamed to make it all up. Celebrity, sex. drugs, and

"Truth is stranger than fiction," says the old adage. Here, collected for the first time are eight stories that may just disprove that theory. In this, his first book, Craig Phillip Dawson demonstrates with seasoned storytelling just how blurry that line between truth and fiction can be. Whether it be in supernatural tales like "The Smart Bomb", the unseen vengeance of the whiskey trade in "The Living Still", or the more down-to-earth, but non-stop action of the novelette "Wheelies", Dawson demonstrates with masterful skill how to cross that line. Here are eight well-told exercises of the imagination that truly are-Stranger than Nonfiction.
