Lookie: original Richard Sala art

Original cover art for Delphine #3 by Richard Sala


One of the great privileges of working at Fantagraphics is the opportunity to see original artwork for upcoming releases. Case in point: this gorgeous painted cover by Richard Sala for Delphine #3 (release date TBD), which my crappy cameraphone did absolutely no favors to (and turned purple for some reason).

We're #3
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Peanutsclassicsawards 6 Nov 2007 12:32 PM
We are pleased to point out that Amazon.com has ranked The Complete Peanuts 1963-1966 Box Set at #3 on their list of Best Books of 2007 - Top 10 Editors Picks: Graphic Novels.

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't suggest that you buy it directly from us. Amazon has us beat on price but they can't match the love.

Moomin, Superset, Soulless.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey Korner 6 Nov 2007 11:40 AM
I know it's bad form to urge you to buy another publisher's books but I finally got ahold of Moomin 2 the other day and I can't recommend it enough. Up at the top of my list (next to Peanuts, Fletcher Hanks and Popeye) for reprint collections. It is every entry for amazing in the thesaurus. I still have only seen a little of v.1 as I can't find it in local shops or the B&N. Go figure.

A great site that features nothing more than illustrators creating superheroes whose talents conquer the previous hero. Hilarious and endlessly time-wasting. The Superest features mainly the art of the talented Mr. Kevin Cornell and Matthew Sutter.

Michael Eisner + Xmen = Third-rate Product Comics GO BIG! Wake up Mr. E. It's 2007 and it's time you go to Hell.

Oh, I'll regret that post in an hour or so.

Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Peter Bagge 5 Nov 2007 4:52 PM
I've been putting together Peter Bagge's next Hate Annual (#7) which contains ten pages of his Weekly World News "Bat Boy" strips. The strips are some of my favorite work from Pete and I was curious about how he came to do a comic strip for the notoriously bizarre supermarket tabloid. So for the fans here's some quick Q&A:

New Release: Betsy and Me
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesJack Coleclassics 2 Nov 2007 4:23 PM


Betsy and Me
by Jack Cole

Having mastered comic books and gag cartoons, in 1958, nearly two decades after he unveiled Plastic Man to the world, Jack Cole set his sights on the cartoonist's pot of gold — a syndicated newspaper strip. He hit the bull's-eye with Betsy and Me, a breezy domestic farce focusing on a middle-class urban couple and their smart-aleck genius son. Cole stripped his style down to its bare essentials, creating a strip that sparkles with economy, wit, and charm. What gave the strip its edge, however, was Cole's innovative storytelling, which utilized ironic tension between protagonist Chet Tibbit's words and actions to reveal him as fatuous and delusional. Betsy and Me was an instant success and newspapers were lining up to buy it. Then, with only two-and-a-half months' worth of strips completed, Cole purchased a .22 caliber pistol and ended his life. R.C. Harvey's insightful introduction serves as a biographical sketch and sheds light on the circumstances surrounding Cole's suicide.
