Another awesome Tim Lane poster

Big Heap O' Fun
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Roy Crane 23 Sep 2008 10:54 AM

I just scored the first six (correction) five issues of BIG FUN magazine and am mystified that it's taken me over two years to discover this noble endeavor. Publisher Mark Schwartz has produced six impressive collections of classic adventure comics by Roy CraneNoel SicklesWarren Tufts, and others. My personal favorites are a bunch of advertising strips for oral hygiene products by Frank Robbins. The reproductions are all choice and the paper and production impressive. The two most recent "issues" (they're really full-on trade paperbacks) were done print-on-demand, but if you like the Crane/Sickles/Tufts school of cartooning, these are really must-haves.

Here's a review of Abandoned Cars from PRINT magazine:

Forget about Marvel's Secret Invasion or DC's Final Crisis. The real comic book event of the summer comes in the unassuming guise of a hardcover collection of illustrated short stories. Abandoned Cars (Fantagraphics) is the breathtaking debut book by St. Louis writer/illustrator Tim Lane. Lane drew on a number of inspirations-everything from "pre-Comics Code" comics like Will Eisner's The Spirit to Bruce Springsteen's concept album Nebraska to inform this collection of atmospheric tales about the human condition. "Over technique, over stylization, more important than anything else is emotional impact," he says. This isn't to say that the book lacks either technique or style, but that for all its visual dazzle, there's an emotional tug, sometimes sympathy, sometimes revulsion. Refreshingly, the book isn't slavishly devoted to genre or to its inherent comic book-ness (no tights or monsters). So why not just write a straight-up short story collection? "The stories I like to tell are conducive to comics," he says. The book signals the arrival of a major new voice on the American literary landscape, with or without the illustrations.

Let's You and Him Fight.

Our wonderful printer of the Popeye series, Print Vision, just sent me this photo of our 3rd volume to confirm that the diecut aligns correctly. This should be in stores in November.

Thank you Fantagraphics for letting me use such a ridiculous sequence on the Wimpy cover. (Next year: Sea Hag/Goon.)

Robert Williams Wears Vans

Certainly the first major national ad campaign to throw around phrases like "But sometimes polyps develop on the colon of mankind." 

Look for a new Robert Williams book from Fantagraphics in the fall of 2009.
