Anders Nilsen's The End is a collection of short strips about loss, death, paralysis, and transformation. It is a concept album in different styles, a meditation on paying attention, an abstracted autobiography and a travelogue, reflecting the progress of his struggle to reconcile the great upheaval of a death, and finding a new life on the other side.

For today only, The End is on sale at 20% off until 11:59 PST.

 


 

The Raven by Lou Reed and Lorenzo Mattoti - CoverTomorrow, January 2nd, we'll be highlighting Lou Reed and Lorenzo Mattotti's The Raven! Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem of the same name, this book visualizes an extraordinary artistic collaboration between Lou Reed and the likes of David Bowie, Steve Buscemi, and Willem Dafoe, bringing song, verse, illustration, and narrative together into a singular publication.

Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 - Cover Uncovered
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPat ThomasLes McCannComing AttractionsAlan Abrahams 30 Dec 2014 3:45 PM

Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 - Cover

Portraits shot at the right moment are like the fermata on a pitch perfect note.

Les McCann, jazz musician and photographer, was able to capture such moments of intimacy from legendary jazz singers and musicians. Feast your eyes on the first look of our finished cover art to McCann's retrospective, Invitation to Openness, curated and introduced by Pat Thomas (Listen Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975). Cannonball Adderley, Dizzy Gillespie, Donald Dean, and Nina Simone (as well as comedian Redd Foxx) grace the cover, a tiny sampling of the vast array of photographs that McCann took throughout his career.

Invitation to Openness is coming soon from Fantagraphics, a refrain you'll read and hear often until its March release, striking a chord within the hearts of photography fans and lovers of jazz alike.

Cole is the first retrospective of his career, featuring the largest collection of Cole artwork ever assembled. He became famous for his brilliant primary colors - often over black backgrounds - which he used on alluring covers for crime, suspense, science fiction, and romance comics and pulp magazines. Editor J. Michael Catron will give a brief slide presentation on the remarkable career of this amazing artist from the golden age of comic books.

The Late child
Trot out of your flat and shake off the holiday malaise Wednesday, January 14th as Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger make a guest appearance at Gosh! Comics in London. On a world tour for The Late Child and Other Animals, Van Cook and Romberger will join the monthly comics discussion group at Gosh! called Process and discuss this beautiful, poignant graphic memoir.
  
The good stuff starts at 7pm on the nose so don't be late for The Late Child, lest we make some terrible Big Ben jokes from across the pond. The Late Child and Other Animals is not only a gorgeous graphic novel by this comics power couple but damn good read as the generational struggles of a mother and daughter come to light after WWII. See you there!

Happy Boxing Day! Our Fantabucks Sale is BACK!
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specials 26 Dec 2014 12:00 AM

Fantabucks 2-for-1 Sale!

Time for a last hurrah for 2014! This has been a very good year for Fantagraphics. Over the past 12 months, we have published more than 100 books, thanks to our hardworking staff and our amazing Kickstarter supporters—and a dozen of those books have become New York Times Bestsellers! Two of our longstanding favorite artists, Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, were both awarded their first Eisner Awards (long-overdue, in our not-so-humble opinion); Charles Burns' Black Hole got a cameo in the sci-fi action film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; and our very own Gary Groth received The Stranger's Genius Award in Literature. And that's really just the tip of the iceberg.

To celebrate another year of publishing the world's greatest cartoonists, we'd like to share the love back with you, our loyal Fanta readers.

Remember that one time we offered a Fantabucks 2-for-1 Coupon? Here's a refresher:

Each FantaBucks 2-for-1 Coupon costs just $55 and gets you a unique coupon code worth $110 toward your next purchase of $110 or more (not including shipping) here on Fantagraphics.com! That's like getting half off $110 worth of merchandise! You can buy as many coupons as you like, but you can only use one coupon per order and you must redeem each coupon entirely in a single purchase. You can also buy coupons as gifts — just tell us the recipients' email addresses at checkout. Beginning on Tuesday, December 30, we will email you your personalized coupon code(s).

Important note for 20/20 Club members: with your standard discount, you pay only $44, and so you will receive a coupon in the amount of $88, which, with your discount, is still good for that $110 worth of merchandise. (Paying attention in math class is paying off!)

Monday, December 29, 2014 is the last day to grab this amazing deal, so don't miss out!
