Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: JIS
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specialsJIS 13 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's installment features another cartoonist who's a best-seller in his native land but relatively unknown here: the Mexican cartoonist known as JIS.

Cats Don't Exist by JIS

Cats Don't Exist

JIS (a pen name for Jose I. Solorzano) made his American debut with this inspired and inspiring slice of psychedelic absurdity. With a childlike mastery of the obvious, an inspired sense of mischief, and hilarious insight into the human divine, Jis' comics at once recall the sensibilities of both Jules Feiffer and Terence McKenna. Deceptively minimalistic, the book collects a handful of comic stories and individual drawings that will nudge the lucky reader gently into a dissonant universe. In the title story, cats replace aliens as bogeymen of the human psyche. "To Our Dear Enemies" is a fulsome thank-you note to censors for infusing boring old sex with such intrigue; "We Woke Up... Married" and "Guilt as an Aphrodisiac" will teach you more about love than Erich Fromm and Barbara Cartland combined; and JIS's epic is "Moons, Loonies, and Angel, which kicks off with the deceptively comforting line, "First, organize your eyes..."

Seeking: Product Photographer Who Loves Comics.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Untagged  13 Jul 2008 3:30 PM

For years I've longed to use photographs of our books in marketing material instead of the usual flat, digital design files. But, as many Fantagraphics fans know, we run a low-budget ship around here so we can't afford to hire anyone to do this. However, if there are any generous souls out there who are set up to do product shots of books we'd love to work with you in trade. You shoot a book, you keep the book.

If any Flog readers know a photographer who might be game, please consider passing this posting on to them.

This would not be a high volume gig-- just one to three books a month. If we can get a few interior shots out of the deal, cool. The critical thing is some decent cover shots of our books, which occassionally have tricky things like diecuts or foil stamping or whatever.

And maybe we can hook you up with some back catalog books as well.

IF INTERESTED, PLEASE WRITE me care of fbicomix /at/ fantagraphics.com with "Attn: COVEY" in the subject line. Or post in comments.

Thank you!

This killer illustration by Charles Burns ran in this week's New Yorker and I just had to scan and share. 

Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Milt Gross
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specialsMilt Grossclassics 12 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's installment features a bona fide rediscovered classic by cartooning great Milt Gross:

He Done Her Wrong by Milt Gross

He Done Her Wrong

First published in 1930, the famously wordless He Done Her Wrong is Milt Gross' graphic masterpiece, the result of his prior collaboration with Charlie Chaplin on the 1928 silent-era film classic The Circus. Sharing the same goofy, over-the-top comic mayhem that was Chaplin's trademark, and preceding the expressive, cartoony art style of MAD Magazine legend Harvey Kurtzman, all of He Done Her Wrong's hilarious slapstick, tragic heartbreak, heroism and villainy, character development, high emotions and raucous thrills somehow manages to take place, astonishingly, without a single word of text, or conversation, or even a footnote. The story follows the convoluted misadventures of a naïve frontiersman with superhuman strength exploited by a larcenous robber baron who eventually double crosses our hero and steals his girl. He Done Her Wrong is a classic comics work, legendary among aficionados, and arguably the 20th century's first graphic novel. Fantagraphics Books is proud to put this back into print in a facsimile edition, unabridged, with newly designed covers.

Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: David Greenberger
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 11 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's installment features an anthology collection of Duplex Planet Illustrated stories compiled and edited by David Greenberger and illustrated by some of the brightest lights in alternative comics:

No More Shaves, edited by David Greenberger

No More Shaves

The Duplex Planet started in 1979 as a small, self-xeroxed fanzine by David Greenberger. In 20 years, it has become a veritable cottage industry and endless source of inspiration for Greenberger. The Duplex Planet features stories and conversations that Greenberger had with the residents of the Duplex Nursing Home in Boston, where he worked in the late 1970s and '80s. Greenberger presents the beauty and comical wisdom of the often bizarre and occasionally poignant things said by his elderly friends. Greenberger never imposes his own worldview, allowing the residents to quietly flesh themselves into some of the more remarkable characters in contemporary literature. No More Shaves presents these stories in comics form interpreted by many of today's best cartoonists, including Dave Cooper, Jason Lutes, Rick Altergott, Doug Allen, Daniel Clowes, JR Williams, Ron Regé Jr., Dame Darcy, Jeff Johnson, Tim Hensley, Holly Jane Zachary, Paul Nitsche, Pat Moriarity, Eric Theriault, Greg Ruth, Wayno, George Parsons, Gary Leib, and Dean Rohrer.
