Thin wallets, fat bookshelves: AdHouse’s 2009 line-up

Today we’ll be looking at Chris Pitzer’s small press company AdHouse, who released such stellar books last year as Skyscrapers of the Midwest and Mesmo Delivery. It should be noted that PDF previews of several of the books listed below can be found at company’s Web site.

And There You Are

And There You Are by Ronnie del Carmen. Pixar artist del Carmen tells the partly real, partly imagined story of his “fan favorite muse” Nina, told via journals and art work. Nina apparently appeared previously in the Paper Biscuit series, unread by me. $15, full color, paperback, March.

Ace-Face: The Mod With the Metal Arms by Mike Dawson. Dawson follows up his successful memoir, Freddie and Me, with this slightly tongue-in-cheek superhero homage about a bionic limbed crime-fighter. The character was originally seen haunting the pages of Project Superior, in case you were wondering. $6.95, black and white, softcover, April.


Remake by Lamar Abrams. Described as “Astro Boy meets Scott Pilgrim,” Remake is a lighthearted tale about a robot boy who keeps getting into trouble. $12.95 paperback, May.

Johnny Hiro Vol. 1 by Fred Chao. The first three issues of Chao’s series about a hapless, um, hero, are collected here, along with two additional stories. $14.95 paperback, June.

Process Recess 3 by James Jean. Another sumptuous collection of Jean illustrations. AdHouse must be doing rather well with these to have a third book out so quickly after the second one. No price listed yet, July.

Ace Face

FHCS Vol. 1 by Vito Delsante & Rachel Freire. Comic scribe Delsante (Batman, Red Sonja) and newcomer artist Freire relive the horrors of high school. It’s described as “Archie meets 90210.” $9.95 paperback, August.

Driven by Lemons by Josh Cotter. Not an official folow-up to the past year’s stunning Skyscrapers of the Midwest, but rather a collection of sketchbook reproductions, designed, it should be noted, to look like his actual sketchbook. If you’ve ever seen Cotter’s sketches, you’ll know how potentially awesome this book could be. $19.95 full color, hardcover, September.
