Bill North, Senior Curator at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, sends us this link to photos of the exhibit "BLAB! A Retrospective," featuring artwork from the past several volumes of our BLAB! anthology. The exhibit opened last week and runs through November 2, 2008.
Don't forget to vote in the Harveys! Ballots due Aug. 15.
UPDATE: The email address to return ballots to is a dreaded SBCglobal address that no one at Fantagraphics can email to. I guess no Harvey Awards for us this year!
To make room in our warehouse for a boatload of new arrivals, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery will host a SUMMER SIDEWALK SALE this Saturday, August 9. You’ll get 50% OFF selected backlist books by your favorite Fantagraphics geniuses. These recent returns and slightly marred books will fill your dog days of August with endless amusement.

This monthly art walk celebrates the creative diversity of Georgetown in an effort to generate public sentiment favoring preservation of this wonderful civic asset. More than 30 Georgetown enterprises participate, featuring a lively array of visual, performing, and applied arts.
Peruse highly anticipated and acclaimed new Fantagraphics titles, preview the stunning new exhibition of original art by French cartoonist David B., and patronize Georgetown’s wildly entertaining galleries, boutiques, cafes, and nightclubs.

Please enjoy this not-comics video and take a moment to appreciate your Friendly Neighborhood Fanta Graphic Designers, Jacob Covey and Adam Grano, for beautifying America's bookshelves with their graceful designs and for keeping us safe from any Comic Sans atrocities (the Blippo Bold of Graphic Novel Design).
The day after Zak Sally and Nate Denver played the Fantasygraphics comic book store we tried to go see the batman (stinks) movie at the imax bubble but it was sold out so then we went to Archie Mcphee's and looked at stuff.
We found a photo of Xaime stapled to the wall!
Nate Denver surveys the land.
(Zak and I did eventually see the 12 and a half hour long batman movie and it was... uh... the best movie ever... I guess...)
A comics-related post on the topic of curses over at Cryptomundo. Is The Dark Knight cursed? The argument isn't that strong (yet) but it's worth reading this brief rundown.
I'm going to spoil Loren Coleman's final word by sharing it here, as it perfectly summarizes my own interest in BEASTS! : "From Batman to Mothman, whether or not there are curses is not important. The fact that they have become part of popular culture and that there is a dark sense that there may be such things in the modern world, in the end, may be what becomes more significant."And, by the way, I'm incredibly pleased to say that Coleman (one of the world's leading Cryptozoologists) has written a brief history of cryptozoology for BEASTS! Book Two.
