Happy new year, faithful floggers. I begin the new year with yet another "Best Of" list. You've no doubt had enough of them, these "Top Tens" and "Must Have" lists and checklists from hither and yon. I promise to not inundate you with the vast majority of such digital miscellany, but to our fellow cartoon publishers, I have but one question for you: How many of your books made the list of The Top Cryptozoology Books of 2007? Yeah, that's right, I'm talkin' to you. What's that? I can't hear you. Huh? Yeah, that's what I thought. You can shut up now.
Welcome the new year by looking forward to some great 2008 releases, which have just been added to the website and made available for pre-order on our Upcoming Releases page. Pictured above: new editions of Jordan Crane's all-ages hit The Clouds Above and Debbie Drechsler's groundbreaking Daddy's Girl; the newest collection of Jaime Hernandez's Love and Rockets stories, The Education of Hopey Glass; the unique scratchboard storybook Funeral of the Heart by Leah Hayes; and The Comics Journal #288, with our Best of 2007 coverage and sporting a brand-new design and format!
Call 1-800-657-1100 (or 206-524-1967 outside the U.S.) or click the covers above to see full details on each title and add it to your shopping cart. Most of our books go out to our pre-order customers before they arrive in bookstores and comic shops, so this is the fastest way to get them in your hot and eager hands. Order today!
Here at last are 5 more songs from the Tom Price Desert Classic, captured at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery 1st Anniversary party on 12/8/07 by our New Sales Guy and videographer at large Jason T. Miles. We won't choke your browser with all 5 embedded videos; instead, simply click through to our YouTube page to watch.
Now that Facebook lets companies (or "brands" or whatever) have profiles, we've got our very own and you can be our "fan."
On that page, you can follow Flog in a mini-feed, see photos and events, write on our "wall," and even leave us some "graffiti" like Renee French did:
Thanks Renee and everyone else who's "fanned" us already, with extra-special thanks if you're posing with Fantagraphics comics in your profile photo:
Earlier in 2007 we had a special sale just for our social-networking "friends" — chances are we'll do it again in 2008. Hint hint!
McSweeney's #25 features a gorgeous cover by Leah Hayes that the accompanying jpg hardly does justice of. Leah's first graphic novel, FUNERAL OF THE HEART, will be out in a couple of months from Fantagraphics (and don't miss her first solo comic, HOLY MOLY, also published by Fanta a couple of years ago - it's still available).
