The Cute ManifestoThe Cute Manifesto
by James Kochalka
James lays it all on the line in this one, as he let's fly with his most deeply held beliefs:  on the state of existence, the meaning of life and its relation to death and the hows and whys of everything (along with a few more mundane topics such as the relationship between craft and art); and on how it all relates to that subject most dear to him -- comics!  Kochalka naysayers beware: in The Cute Manifesto he actually manages to successfully address some substantial issues and make some fairly interesting observations; both in comics and about comics.  Long time Kochalka readers will be familiar with some of the material here as it previously appeared in now out of print comics; and hard core Kochalka fans will have read almost all of it as most of the rest was previously released in a couple of mini-comics that Kochalka self-published and sold at shows.  But for the rest of us, this 168-page volume is all new, and -- despite its relatively hefty price tag -- well worth the while of anyone who enjoys pushing the  boundaries of comics and exploring the universe through line on paper.

Fancy Froglin’s Sexy Forest
by James Kochalka
Only Kochalka could produce a book like this and get away with it; and not only that, but get it printed in a full color, glossy, squarebound edition.  In what is basically a funny animal treatment of overt sexuality, this book takes a nine year-old boy’s idea of sexuality and transplants it into the body of an adult anthropomorphisized frog.  Its’ kind of hard -- if not downright painful -- to imagine, isn’t it?  But, relax -- you don’t have to, as Kochalka’s done it for you!  Needless to say, this is not appropriate for children.

<>American Elf: The Collected Sketchbook Diaries of James Kochalka, October 26, 1998 to December 31, 2003
By James Kochalka
with an introduction by Moby (in comics form!)
THUD!  That's the sound this book makes when dropped under the tree.  It's a big, fat book, and it will take awhile to go through it. This volume collects all four of the original sketchbook diaries, PLUS a whole extra year, AND has a bonus 32 page (16 in the front, and 16 in the back) color supplement of all new material.  The Sketchbook Diaries are a unique work and this collection is a great value.  To learn more, visit our Kochalka Sketchbook Diary Page.  Over the past five years James Kochalka's Sketchbook Diary -- apearing as American Elf on the web -- has been quietly creating a revolution in the daily comic strip form every bit as important as that of Schulz's Peanuts  fifty years earlier.  Really.

American Elf 2American Elf:  Book 2, 2004 - 2005
by James Kochalka
Finally, the next installment of James Kochalka's epic of self-revelation, The Sketchbook Diaries, is on our shelves.  This time around, there's something new:  the strips are printed in FULL COLOR, as they originally appeared online.  While we do our best to check in now and then and catch up with James at
American Elf, nothing beats sitting down and reading a whole year's worth -- or two -- and experiencing the ebb and flow of time at one's leisure.  It's the primary pleasure offered by this strip and it really is a one-of-a-kind treat.  With American Elf, Kochalka has pioneered an entirely new approach to the daily comic strip, and, just like with all great strips, the longer you stay with it, the deeper and richer the experience gets.  That may sound like a bit much considering how goofy these strips get at times, but the critical key here is the accretion that occurs.  The accumulated years of this strip build layers of associations, themes, sub-plots and leitmotifs that all play off of each other and echo through the years creating a prime example of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
