Good or bad, they don't make trading cards as intriguing as this anymore.

The Inkstuds of Pussy Rock
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Peter Bagge 26 Sep 2008 10:48 AM

Because no one demanded it! Peter Bagge & I reunite on the Inkstuds Hour of Power to talk about our old band, The Action Suits. But not before Pete and the Inkstuds crew talk about just how fucked up America is! Above comic by Jaime Hernandez.

Dan Clowes: Genius. Still.

This is the first time I've seen this cover large enough to make out the structure of the speech and thought balloons and it kills me. This is brilliant. I want to write an essay about the concept of this one panel as it relates to marketing this subject to the varied audience it is reaching out to in the era that it is doing so but I'm not gifted at essay writing. Dan Clowes is genius and I begrudgingly understand why my wife has a goddamn "celebrity crush" on him.

Nilsen at Quimby's TONIGHT!

Anders Nilsen artwork

Chicagoans! You've got 2 hours to hie ye'self down to Quimby's to see a reading by Anders Nilsen at 7 PM. Sez Anders on his blog, "I'll be showing a sort of preview of the forthcoming Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes (Monologues II-Fantagraphics Books, due out in February) as well as a video-ized version of the strip Event, which first appeared in Mome, back in 2005, and was originally conceived as a video, not a comic strip. Which explains why it doesn't really look like one. Joe Meno and Arthur Nersesian are also reading."

Woodring & DiFilippo Present Cosmocopia at Fantagraphics
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jim WoodringFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 24 Sep 2008 1:57 PM

JIM WOODRING AND PAUL DIFILIPPO PRESENT COSMOCOPIA AT FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKSTORE & GALLERY ON OCTOBER 11, 2008

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, in association with Payseur & Schmidt, is pleased to host the debut of Cosmocopia by acclaimed author Paul DiFilippo, illustrated by Jim Woodring. This event, on Saturday, October 11 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM, will feature an exhibition of new work by Woodring and a reading from the book by DiFilippo, followed by a book signing. This exquisite hardbound literary work is limited to 500 copies housed in a handsome box and includes a 513-piece jigsaw puzzle by Woodring — an extraordinary collaboration by two of the country’s most creative minds.

Paul DiFilippo, of Providence, Rhode Island, is a prolific author primarily associated with science fiction’s provocative cyberpunk and steampunk sub-genres. His popular short stories have been collected in The Steampunk Trilogy, Fractal Paisleys, Ribofunk, and A Year in the Linear City. His utterly unclassifiable novels include Ciphers, Fuzzy Dice, A Mouthful of Tongues, and Spondulix. Among DiFilippo’s work in comics is Top 10: Beyond the Farthest Precinct, a sequel to the Alan Moore series on DC Comics’ Wildstorm imprint. He has been a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, BSFA, Philip K. Dick, Wired Magazine, and World Fantasy awards.

Seattle-based cartoonist and fine artist Jim Woodring has cultivated an international following with his visionary rendering style and lurid palette. His award-winning comic book series include Jim and Frank, which have been collected in several volumes by Fantagraphics Books. His recent books include The Portable Frank and Museum of Love & Mystery. Woodring’s art has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, and he was a recipient of a prestigious United States Artist Fellowship in 2006. His exhibition will include recent paintings, drawings and prints.

Cosmocopia follows fictional fantasy artist Frank Lazorg as he is driven to madness. His failing career is reinvigorated by the discovery of a miraculous drug, which ultimately plunges the artist into an equally disturbing alternate reality. Cosmocopia is published by Seattle-based artisan press Payseur & Schmidt. Specializing in speculative fiction, Payseur & Schmidt is the creation of Jacob McMurray and Therese Littleton. McMurray is senior curator at the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame as well as a graphic designer, publisher, and arts activist in the Northwest. Littleton serves as director of curatorial affairs at the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame and has been a literary arts advocate in our region for many years.

Please join us on Saturday, October 11 for this festive celebration. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring lively visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic neighborhood. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.), only minutes from downtown Seattle. Phone 206.658.0110. A selection of images in a variety of formats is available for publication. For more information contact Eric Reynolds at Fantagraphics.
