The Friends of the Nib present a Valentine-themed art show for an evening of canoodling, carousing and commerce at Seattle's Cafe Racer on Valentine's evening (hey, that's today) from 6 to 10 PM. Mr. Woodring provides the enticement and details.
This week's free preview is a downloadable 12-page excerpt (including the gorgeous covers and endpapers) of Hall of Best Knowledge, the innovative new book from Ray Fenwick which is scheduled to arrive in April. These previews are exclusive to registered Fantagraphics.com users, so sign up and/or sign in to view.
(As a reminder, 20/20 Club members receive these previews two weeks before we post them on the website, just one of many great reasons to join up...)
Irwin Chusid, editor of our Jim Flora books, writes:
Jim Flora Art LLC has produced a limited-edition, archival-quality fine art print of a 1954 Jim Flora hand-tinted woodcut entitled Manhattan.
In the time it's taken me to write this, 4 of the 5 have sold. Yipes!
For those of more modest means, Jim Flora notecard sets (and other snazzy goods from artists like Meomi, Matthew Porter, Mark Burrier and many others) can be purchased from copacetique.com (note: big fat conflict of interest/nepotism alert).
Kurt Wolfgang talked to Gary Groth and survived in November 2005; we printed it in Mome Vol. 3; and now you can read the interview in its entirety here on the Fantagraphics website as part of our ongoing series of Mome interview web reprints. Previously: Paul Hornschemeier and Gabrielle Bell. Next up: Jonathan Bennett.
Fantagraphics would like to extend its condolences to the family of Steve Gerber, who passed away on Sunday (if you'd like to read more about Mr. Gerber, the Comics Reporter has a very thorough index of online coverage of his life and works).
In honor of Mr. Gerber's legacy, our sister Comics Journal site has uploaded the entirety of Gary Groth's landmark 1978 TCJ interview (#41) interview with Gerber (this interview is also available in The Comics Journal Library Vol. 6: The Writers). For further context, we also present critic Dale Luciano's essay on the subject of Gerber's work.
