Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under John Pham 24 Jul 2008 9:27 PM

Published by Fantagraphics and making its world premiere at Comic-Con this weekend, SUBLIFE is a one person anthology series by John Pham featuring one single, serialized story (221 Sycamore St.) backed up by smaller, hopefully more self-contained strips. It should hit bookstores some time in the Fall, and the first issue will be squarebound, 64 pages, two-color. It'll feature the first part of the Sycamore St serial, as well as a nice two page genre strip called "Deep Space."Here are a few preview jpegs of the strips for your perusal.

John Pham will be signing the only available copies of SUBLIFE for the next couple of months this Friday & Saturday at Comicon at the Fantagraphics Books Booth (1716) at these times:

Friday: 2PM to 3PM
Saturday: 3PM to 5PM

Band of Brothers
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim DeitchJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezGene Deitch 24 Jul 2008 10:58 AM

Ah, it's a beautiful day in Seattle and currently the entire top floor of our building is occupied solely by myself and Adam Grano while everyone else gets their nerd on in San Diego. I could get used to not going to Comic-Con. (Note to Adam: can we get a ping pong table in here, toot-sweet?

Anyway, we just received advance copies of two new books (these are also debuting at the con) that will hit stores in early September: LOVE & ROCKETS: NEW STORIES #1 and DEITCH'S PICTORAMA. It occured to me that this means we will be releasing two books, on the same day, by two different sets of cartooning/sibling legends. Kind of cool. 

Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Wilfred Santiago
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Wilfred Santiagosales specials 23 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

The subject of today's spotlight, Wilfred Santiago, is poised to make a major splash in 2009 with 21, his comics biography of baseball legend Roberto Clemente.

In My Darkest Hour by Wilfred Santiago

In My Darkest Hour

The Age of Anxiety has never been better depicted in comics form than in In My Darkest Hour, a modernist, mainstream graphic novel that explores the inner life of its protagonist, Omar Guerrero, a 28 year-old Latin American transient, who confronts his pervasive feelings of inadequacy, anger, guilt, and escalating alienation. The first full-length graphic novel from Pop Life collaborator Wilfred Santiago, in a lovely two-color format.
