One of Mauldin's most famous cartoons, depicting the statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial holding his head in his hands, appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. The original printing plate of this historic sketch was saved from the waste basket by a Sun Times editor, and now is reproduced as a special limited edition of 650 prints:
Thanks to Jean Albano Gallery, Virtual Book Signing will feature that original printing block during the May 8th program with Todd DePastino.
Robin McConnell over at the Inkstuds blog has posted a letter that Dave Sim is sending out to anyone that wishes to correspond with him. He is requesting that if you want to correspond with him, you must agree that he is not a misogynist. This should go well. We're really not making this up:
It's Free Comic Book Day tomorrow, so head on down to your participating local comic shop (especially if it's the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery) and pick up a copy of our offering, I.G.N.A.T.Z. ("International Graphic Novels At Their Zenith")! This 32-pager contains exclusive, never-before-seen excerpts from upcoming installments in our premium Ignatz Series, plus a couple of other goodies, including Babel #3 by David B., Baobab #3 by Igort, Grotesque #2 by Sergio Ponchione, Sammy the Mouse #2 by Zak Sally, Niger #3 by Leila Marzocchi, Interiorae #3 by Gabriella Giandelli, Delphine #3 by Richard Sala, and Ganges #2 by Kevin Huizenga (who also provides a new cover ilustration), plus a gallery of unseen sketches from Reflections by Marco Corona!
To answer the inevitable question: this comic book is ONLY available at participating comic book stores; plans to make additional copies available via our website or otherwise are To Be Determined (and will not be influenced by begging -- we know how badly you want one). Future plans, if any, will be announced here on Flog, so stay tuned.
