Blogosphere roundup for 9/12/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviews 12 Sep 2008 2:34 PM

The Internet weighs in on our books this week:

The Times names Daddy's Girl by Debbie Drechsler and Funeral of the Heart by Leah Hayes two of "the summer's best graphic novels"

NPR.org reviews and excerpts Bottomless Belly Button by Dash Shaw; Sean T. Collins calls BBB "a deeply pleasurable, and rewarding, read"

• Jeff Lester thinks Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 is so nice, he reviews it twice: once for The Savage Critics, once for io9; plus more reviews from The Star Clipper Blog and Marc Singer; Rocketship also gives it a quick plug

Our favorite fictional comic shop clerk recommends several of our new releases (though her page count for The Portable Frank is missing a zero)

• If you can read Greek, maybe you can tell us what Back to Mono is saying about Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron by Daniel Clowes

That Girl Eats Too Much
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jeremy Eaton 11 Sep 2008 9:55 PM

Jeremy Eaton is selling two dozen gouache drawings (including those seen above) in a one-night only studio show/sale, Sept. 13, 6-9 p.m. The same work will be available online at the same time (go to Comic Book Collective), but those in attendance at the opening get a special "locals only" price.

His studio is at 521 NW 43rd St., Seattle, WA 98107 (north side storefront of the big blue building at the junction of 6th Ave. NW & 43rd, just across from Hale's Brewery, on Leary Ave.).

Seattlites best know Eaton as the illustrator of The Stranger's I Love Television column, as well as the editorial cartoonist for the Beacon Hill News. Comic fans know him best for a slew of Fantagraphics releases over the last decade and a half.

Humbug update
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Humbug 11 Sep 2008 10:10 AM
Prompted by a recent customer query, here's a quick status update on our Humbug collection: it's still a bit delayed due to our painstaking production process, and is now looking like a late December/early January release. I've eavesdropped on many production discussions and I can tell you that there is incredible attention to detail going into this project. (If you missed it earlier, you can get a glimpse at the process right here.) It will absolutely be worth the wait!
