Today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer previews "Now Serving Cheesecake," our show of classic vintage pin-up cartoons opening Saturday at our storefront. (Pictured: Larry Reid with a Bill Ward original. Photo: Scott Eklund / P-I)
Bill Griffith turned in his spectacular cover to the upcoming WELCOME TO DINGBURG Zippy collection, which focuses heavily on Dingburg, the "city inhabited solely by pinheads." (Other than Washington D.C., of course.) The inside cover will feature a full-color fold-out map of Dingburg, and as a result the front cover is also a foldout and our man Bill knocked himself out on both. Enjoy your sneak peek at the original to the cover (we're keeping the map under wraps for now), and look for the book late this year.
The Summer 2008 issue of Art Source, the newsletter of the Seattle-based arts organization the Artist Trust, contains a feature article by curator Cynthia Rose (read a preview on the Artist Trust website) which profiles Epileptic/Babel creator David B. and highlights his upcoming visit to Seattle in mid-August, which is co-sponsored by the Alliance Française de Seattle and includes, of course, a stop and art show at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. Stay tuned for our complete announcement with all the details of this exciting multi-day celebration of bandes desinées, which will also include a talk given by our own Kim Thompson, a screening of Tintin et Moi at the Northwest Film Forum, and a panel discussion with David B., Jim Woodring, Peter Bagge and Joe Sacco at the Henry Art Museum.
