Stuff those stockings
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Tony Millionairesales specialsJordan CraneJoe Coleman 13 Dec 2007 3:38 PM
Need some last-minute stocking stuffers? We're here to help. Here's a selection of our tiniest books; there's something for everyone, and they're all affordably priced! (Plus they're all hardcovers, so they won't get bent out of shape if you cram them down into the toe and then pile a bunch of clementines on top.)

And hey, how about a sweet little deal: order all 3 for just $25 (that's $2.95 off the combined cover prices) from now until Christmas. (Note: If you order off the website, the discount won't be reflected in your shopping cart/order confirmation; please state the offer in the comments section and we'll process your order to include the discount. You can also call in your order to 1-800-657-1100.)

The Last Lonely Saturday by Jordan Crane

The Last Lonely Saturday
By Jordan Crane

Largely wordless and cunningly rendered, this little book is sure to touch most folks. An old widower visits his departed wife's gravesite. Little does he know that what the day holds for him will result in this being his last lonely Saturday. Both sweet and bitter, realistic and fantasic, this heartwarming story of love and love lost is told in a beautiful two-color, red and yellow palette.

80-page 4" x 6.25" hardcover $8.00

Mighty Mite the Ear Mite by Tony Millionaire

Mighty Mite the Ear Mite
By Tony Millionaire

This charming, clever little book contains two simultaneous stories: in one, a wandering ear mite searches for a home; in the other, a lonely ape escapes from the circus. The two stories intersect for a "happy" ending. Suitable for all ages!

A Devilish Collection
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Frank ThorneEros Comix 13 Dec 2007 8:34 AM
The Complete Iron Devil by Frank Thorne

I don't usually link to reviews, but I wanted to share this Playboy review of Frank Thorne's Complete Iron Devil collection because it's a book that's probably flown under the radar of a lot of Fanta fans, since it's technically an Eros book. But it's also the most gorgeous package Eros has ever put together and it's some of Thorne's finest cartooning of his career, and if anyone deserves a little extra love, it's a legend like him.

Jules Feiffer interview

Jules Feiffer talks EXPLAINERS and much more with Newsarama. This is quite a good interview with Feiffer, who doesn't do a lot of interviews.

FLOG: That most self assured and bloated and cul de sac and yet threadbare of comic blogs.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey KornerFletcher Hanks 12 Dec 2007 10:30 AM
Eric Reynolds pointed out the blog of "Antonius Radio Comix," a bewilderingly anti-comics cartoonist's blog and then Mike Baehr made the keen observation that "surely this guy is the Fletcher Hanks of comics blogging." And so I introduce to you: Antonius.

"I drew a cartoon for playboy I can not scan and neither show here, but it was that experiance in which things seemed to turn for me, and my armor first started to shred. It was their reaction to a cartoon I sent in in august for a nov or dec holiday issue. Their reaction was of a type which went beyond any dislike I ever saw before , and my mom thought, with her hatred for Hef and his published gynocological exams flying , said I got what I deserved. When you fuck a pig you get warts, she told me in Italian..."

To follow his thoughts on our Fletcher Hanks book I recommend you start with the entry of November 29 and work back: "I was once offered a jesuit scholarship due to a papers I wrote in tenth grade about Remus, the first victim of Romulus and his need for power,Leonardo, even the tuscans and such.... But for the pages I now see, I am almost speechless, they are that joyous."

And yet: "My new found love of Fletcher Hanks came to a sad bust..."





Robert Pollard's Do the Collage
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Pollard 12 Dec 2007 10:16 AM


Robert Pollard's "Do the Collage" art exhibit at Studio Dante went off this weekend and Time Out New York sits down for a few questions with the man, as does Spin.com, the latter of which also has some cool photos of the opening and brief interviews with people in attendance about their favorite pieces. This show kicks off a busy year for Pollard as a visual artist, with his Town of Mirrors: The Reassembled Imagery of Robert Pollard art book coming in June from Fantagraphics.

Happy 50th, Peter Bagge!

Peter Bagge

Top 5s and 10s
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under PeanutsPaul Hornschemeierawards 10 Dec 2007 2:31 PM


More year-end accolades: New York Magazine has named Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes one of its five Best Comics of 2007. Paul is the only American creator on the list (Japan, Israel and Australia are also represented), so hey, I guess that unofficially makes The Three Paradoxes the best American comic of the year! Congratulations, Paul!



Meanwhile, The Complete Peanuts 1963-64 makes it onto Time's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2007 list. I don't know if the writer is the first to compare Snoopy's doghouse to the TARDIS, but if so, nicely done. We're honored to continue collecting Schulz's work.
