Happy 50th, Peter Bagge!

Peter Bagge

Top 5s and 10s
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under PeanutsPaul Hornschemeierawards 10 Dec 2007 2:31 PM


More year-end accolades: New York Magazine has named Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes one of its five Best Comics of 2007. Paul is the only American creator on the list (Japan, Israel and Australia are also represented), so hey, I guess that unofficially makes The Three Paradoxes the best American comic of the year! Congratulations, Paul!



Meanwhile, The Complete Peanuts 1963-64 makes it onto Time's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2007 list. I don't know if the writer is the first to compare Snoopy's doghouse to the TARDIS, but if so, nicely done. We're honored to continue collecting Schulz's work.

Above, part A of the gallery performance (at Artguise Gallery in Ottawa) of the configuration of Dave Cooper's 8-part painting "The Underbrush Octych," which continues in part B and part C. Dave tracks the progress of the creation of the piece (among other things) on his Flickr stream.

An addition to the list of Official Selections at the Festival International de la Bande Desinée d'Angoulême, this one in the Youth Selections: Jordan Crane's Dans Les Nuages (The Clouds Above). Magnifique!

Here's a set of really fantastic photos from the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery 1st Anniversary party, courtesy of Dylan Abbott. I think these are the best-looking photos of the bookstore I've seen yet.

The Pin-Ups of Dan DeCarlo 2
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under new releasesDan DeCarlo 10 Dec 2007 11:35 AM

The second book of Dan DeCarlo's pin-up work is heading to book stores. Like the previous volume, the material all comes from DeCarlo's work for the third-rate humor magazines of "a simpler time" (read: chauvanist gags that could conceivably be trumped by any six year old).

DeCarlo was a master and it's difficult to deny the adolescent joy of seeing page after page of Riverdale's nightlife, with statuesque Bettys inviting men up to their room, gal pals chatting away in their lingerie, and Veronica-esque strippers grinding in a burlesque show. Alex Chun has loaded the book up with several dozen originals and includes another 150+ pages of spot-colored magazine page reproductions. PLUS: The great Jaime Hernandez wrote an introduction accompanied by a pin-up of his DeCarlo-influenced character Vivian "Frogmouth." AND: Stan Lee wrote a cover blurb! Stan was The Man who hired DeCarlo for the pin-up magazine work. He also wrote any number of the book's gags. The, uh, better ones I'm sure...

Happy birskday
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Popeyeevents 8 Dec 2007 4:37 PM
David Lasky, whose birthday is today, points out that it is also the birthday of Popeye creator E.C. Segar.

Yet another reason to celebrate with us at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery 1st Anniversary party, starting in less than half an hour...

(My Google image search for "Popeye birthday" bore no amusing fruit.)
