Mystic Funnies #2 (New Printing)
by Robert Crumb
NEW PRINTING! The second installment of Robert Crumb's latest series centers on an unfortunate everyman named "The Moron" in "Bad Karma," an epic quest for the answer to the question "What's it all mean??" Also starring "Fairy Godmother" and "Mr. Natural," who wants to talk to you about the power of the media, man.
32-page black & white comic $4.95
This weekend is the Wordstock Book Fair in Portland, OR, and Fantagraphics will be there, exhibiting for the first time. Come say 'hi' to us and some of the other comic-folk in attendance, including Top Shelf and Adrian Tomine.
From Grass Hut:
"This Saturday at 6pm we are having a special instore accoustic set with Kid Mud, and most special of all Souther Salazar will be here with some bells on. He is going to draw pictures and sign books and have some good times with us. We are going to raffle off the drawings to you. 10% of all proceeds will go to Scrap. A local space that recycles all your old art and craft supplies.
Oh, and we turn one this month. So if you live in the portland area, please come by, eat some pie, say hi, win some prizes and celebrate with us. It's been a really awesome year, with more to come."
SOUTHER SALAZAR DRAWINGS AT AUCTION! In an environment like the sweet li'l GH store you're sure to walk away happy. (And you won't be bidding against me because I can't make it.)
ALSO: There's been a ton of great books dropping lately. Our new Gilbert Hernandez Ignatz book wraps up his "New Tales of Old Palomar" far too soon. Anders Nilsen has a new "Big Questions" book out (#10) and there's good news for the Chris Ware collectors: A portfolio of largesize prints, mostly consisting of his New Yorker covers.
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).
