FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS

AFTER MAN ZOOLOGY OF FUTURE HC

(W) Dougal Dixon (A) Dougal Dixon (CA) Dougal Dixon

First published in 1981, After Man is paleontologist Dougal Dixon's vision of an 'alternative evolution': one without mankind. In the foreword for this edition, he notes, "the book was about the natural forces of evolution, and man ... had too much of an influence .... With the removal of this interference I was able to let nature get back to work". While some of the creatures seem fantastical, others don't seem so very far-fetched. Dixon: "There are now the walking bats of New Zealand ... (and) then there are the snakes in Mexico that live in caves and snatch flying bats out of the air, just like 'The Anchorwhip'".

OUTDOORS GN

(W) Yuichi Yokoyama (A) Yuichi Yokoyama (CA) Yuichi Yokoyama

Yokoyama Yuichi, critically acclaimed for his gekiga ('dramatic pictures') comics further pushes the boundaries of what comics can do with Outdoors. The acclaimed artist has a clear fixation with sound and time and an unbelievable eye for bringing such abstract concepts to life in panel form. Yokoyama uncannily shows the passing of time, suggesting that we should simply see things without labelling them. If he were a musician, he would be John Cage.
