You Torontoans won't want to miss this event on Aug. 7, featuring an art show with Ray Fenwick, Ho Che Anderson, Chester Brown, and many more. The awards themselves are the following night, August 8th, where you can presumably obtain this unlikeliest of jam posters featuring Brown channeling Harold Gray in the lettering dept. and Lynn Johnston channeling Charlie Brown:
Bill North, Senior Curator at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, sends us this link to photos of the exhibit "BLAB! A Retrospective," featuring artwork from the past several volumes of our BLAB! anthology. The exhibit opened last week and runs through November 2, 2008.
Don't forget to vote in the Harveys! Ballots due Aug. 15.
UPDATE: The email address to return ballots to is a dreaded SBCglobal address that no one at Fantagraphics can email to. I guess no Harvey Awards for us this year!
To make room in our warehouse for a boatload of new arrivals, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery will host a SUMMER SIDEWALK SALE this Saturday, August 9.

More than 30 Georgetown enterprises participate, featuring a lively array of visual, performing, and applied arts.
