FU News!
Written by RJ Casey | Filed under Richard SalaFU Press 21 Apr 2015 10:48 AM
If you remember back in September, we launched our micro imprint Fantagraphics Underground Press. 
logoforweb.jpg

FU Press is a return to our roots—publishing work by relatively unknown cartoonists that's innovative, quirky, idiosyncratic, oddball, experimental, or downright crazy; work by established cartoonists that's simply off-kilter or too obscure to sustain a mass market release; or archival work by significant cartoonists who have been overlooked and that might overwise be short-shrifted due to the commercial demands of the traditional marketplace. These books will only be available in comic stores, at conventions, and on our website.

So far we have published three FU books: Jason Karns' Fukitor, Jonah Kinigstein's The Emperor's New Clothes, and Richard Sala's Violent Girls. There are plenty of exciting projects on the horizon, so if you'd like the latest FU updates make sure to check out our new Facebook page.

No one represents FU more than the aforementioned Jonah Kinigstein with his brutal skewering of the artists, curators, and critics that made up the modern art movement of the 20th century. A documentary feature has been made focusing on Kinigstein's art, involvement with Fantagraphics, and his show at New York's Society of Illustrators. You can watch it now.

Until next time... FU, buddy!

Josh Simmons returns with his first full-length graphic novel since 2007's acclaimed House. A group of women, one man, and two dogs are making their way through a post-apocalyptic world in search of a city that supposedly still has electricity and some sort of civilization. Along the way, they go to a comedy club, take a drug called Gumdrop, and encounter gangs of men who are fools, lunatics, or murderous sadists. In other words, all manner of terrors.

Josh Simmons is one of the field's most distinctive voices in the genre of horror (The Furry Trap, House),and this full-length graphic novel is his best work yet, echoing director John Carpenter's perfect tick-tock pacing, as well as Shirley Jackson's ability to transcend genre and turn it into literature.

Daniel Clowes created the cover art for The Stranger this week

 The Stranger cover art by Daniel clowes

Inside you'll find a fantastic interview by Sean Nelson who calls The Complete Eightball "the stunningly smart and innovative comic that did what almost no other comic seemed able to do at the time: enter the culture of people who didn't like comics."

 The Complete Eightball

Over at the Seattle Weekly, Roger Downey writes that "It's an early but by no means immature work, establishing Clowes as perhaps the best exemplar extant of the underground-comic sensibility of the late 20th century."

Walt Disney's Donald Duck: The Pixilated Parrot (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 9) - Inside Page

Take a first look at The Pixilated Parrot , the latest volume of Carl Barks' clever cartoons. When Donald gives Uncle Scrooge a parrot for his birthday, hijinks quickly ensue as the feathered troublemaker escapes—with the combination to Scrooge's vault! Donald and his nephews set out to recover the bird—an adventure that will take them on a most unexpected journey to the far reaches of the globe. This handsome volume also contains one of Barks' finest stories—Vacation Time (it has its own Wikipedia entry )—about a wilderness outing gone awry.

Walt Disney's Donald Duck: "The Pixilated Parrot " (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol.9) will hit shelves in May but is available for pre-order now. This book will be a perfect backseat companion for family road trips this summer— though we hope your travels will involve less mischief!
