Nice to see my pal Tyler Stout get some more mileage out of his BEASTS! book submission by snagging the cover of Seattle's beloved weekly, The Stranger.

Meanwhile, the response to the "open call" slot(s) for BEASTS! Book Two has been surprising and it's been fun to see the work of people I wouldn't have otherwise come across. I can't find time to respond to everyone and though there are a few standout pieces we're all looking forward to seeing more before the March 1st deadline...

Want to submit something? Here are the details...

Deitch & Woodring in Seattle March 8!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim DeitchJim WoodringFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 21 Feb 2008 8:51 AM

FRIENDS OF THE NIB COMICS JAM WITH SPECIAL GUEST KIM DEITCH AT FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKSTORE & GALLERY ON SATURDAY, MARCH 8.

The public is invited to join a stellar group of accomplished cartoonists in the "Friends of the Nib Comics Jam" at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Saturday, March 8 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Celebrated cartoonist and visual artist Jim Woodring will preside over the activities, which will include a guest appearance by New York underground comix legend Kim Deitch. Aspiring cartoonists of all ages are encouraged to participate in this lively session, which will include a rare screening of Deitch's 1960 short film "Dial M for Monster."

Friends of the Nib is an informal cartoonist's salon formed by Woodring that meets weekly at Café Racer in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood. Acclaimed artists such as Ellen Forney, David Lasky and animator Bruce Bickford regularly attend to mentor emerging cartoonists and network with their peers. The “Comics Jam” on March 8 will feature more than a dozen artists cartooning on-site while offering casual encouragement to public participants.

Kim Deitch is among America’s most prominent and influential alternative cartoonists. The (astonishingly sophisticated) animated and live-action film short "Dial M for Monster" he created as a teenager with his friend Tony Eastman has become legendary among Deitch fans; it was never released, and has only been shown a handful of times in small venues as part of Deitch's multimedia presentations; see below for a two-page comic strip by Deitch about the film. Prior to the 7:30 screening, he will introduce the film with a brief media presentation.

Deitch's work has been featured in Art Spiegelman's RAW and R. Crumb'sWeirdo anthologies. In a recent review of Deitch's Shadowland graphic novel, New York Times book critic John Hodgman observed, "Few underground cartoonists deserve that subterranean title so fully as Kim Deitch. He was there at the beginning of the movement, drawing for The East Village Other in 1967, and his work retains much of that psychedelic, R. Crumb-like earthiness." In addition to Shadowland, Fantagraphics Books has collected Deitch's work in Beyond the Pale and published comic book series including The Stuff of DreamsMishkin File, and Waldo World.

Admission is free to the public of all ages.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle's Georgetown industrial arts district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

The "Comics Jam" coincides with the monthly "Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack." Over twenty-five galleries, studios, nightclubs, boutiques, and cafes participate in this lively showcase of Georgetown’s creative diversity.
