Mauldin virtual book signing Thursday night!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under eventsBill Mauldin 5 May 2008 8:44 AM

Todd DePastino will be participating in a Virtual Book Signing this Thursday night to promote his two new books about Bill Mauldin: A LIFE UP FRONT, and WILLIE & JOE: THE WWII YEARS.

This Thursday, May 8th, at 6:00 pm Central Time, Virtual Book Signing, in partnership with Jean Albano Gallery, presents the first full length biography of the great cartoonist of the World War II generation, the legendary Bill Mauldin. They will also offer the first edition of our fine two volume set of Mauldin's classic WWII cartoons, Willie and Joe. Order Signed Copies of these titles now for delivery after the event.

Bill Mauldin costs $27.95.
Willie and Joe costs $65.00.

To reserve your signed copies of these titles visit VirtualBookSigning.net
or call (312) 944-3085.

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.
The Limited Edition hand-pulled print, from that historic plate, measures 17.5 x 14 inches.

"Weeping Lincoln" costs $500.00 unframed, or $750.00 in conservation framing.

If you wish to order this special limited edition please use this order form, or call (312) 944-3085.

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:

I was really hoping this was a review of a porno adaptation of Ghost World. "In short, Touch World is a pile like life."

Free Comic Book Day - Fantagraphics' I.G.N.A.T.Z.

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.

Ray Fenwick release party in Halifax
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Ray Fenwickevents 2 May 2008 8:54 AM

FANTAGRAPHICS & FROG HOLLOW BOOKS PRESENT: 

Halifax's RAY FENWICK celebrates the release of HALL OF BEST KNOWLEDGE on MAY 14!

WHO: RAY FENWICK
WHAT: HALL OF BEST KNOWLEDGE release party & author signing
WHERE: EYELEVEL GALLERY, 2063 Gottingen Street, Halifax
WHEN: Wednesday, MAY 14, 7PM

In this exciting debut graphic novel, Ray Fenwick has pioneered his own medium of storytelling, one best described as "typographical comics." [See this excellent NATIONAL POST feature on Fenwick from last month for more info.] HOBK is presented as a handsome, found journal written by an unnamed voice, referred to only as "The Author." Little is known about him. He clearly fashions himself a genius, writing with a faux-aristocratic air. Each page features pearls of "wisdom," lettered in an elegant, almost obsessive fashion, bedecked with Ionic columns and fleurs-de-lis. Only at the end does The Author's true story become clear. The ensuing journey is a riotous tour through the narrator's ego and id, part graphic novel, part art object, part satire, and part puzzle. Elegantly designed and printed with rounded fore edges and belly band.

RAY FENWICK is an artist, illustrator and typographic thing-maker living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. A former improv comedian and theater school dropout, he now occupies himself making drawings, comics and patterns for people like Blue Q, CMT, Nickelodeon, Urban Outfitters, and others. He contributes regularly to the comics anthology, MOME.

"Fenwick has taken a high-brow route to the art of comedy. Hall of Best Knowledge is several things rolled into one: a bizarre self-help book; an eccentric college text; a guide to life from the unlikeliest of guides. It's hard to categorize (typographical novel? graphic metafiction?), even harder to explain." - Mark Medley, National Post

PUB. DATE: MAY 14, 2008 • 168 pp. • ISBN 978-1-56097-910-4 • $19.99










Logo Lore
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Love and RocketsFantagraphics history 2 May 2008 7:42 AM

I've been around Fantagraphics for 15 years now, but I never knew that comic book letterer extraordinaire Todd Klein designed not only the original LOVE & ROCKETS logo, but also a slew of other early Fantagraphics logo designs (who can forget the great "Elfquest Gatherum"?!). You learn something new every day.

Gallery Ghost - Richard Sala

Richard Sala provides illustrations for Gallery Ghost, which looks like a nifty edumacational book for the grade-school set. Via Sporadic Sequential, who get kudos for their blog post title.
