Public Service Announcement
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under miscellany 20 Aug 2008 10:49 AM
In the past 3 weeks, 3 Fantagraphics staffers (yours truly included) have had their computers (work or personal) die on them -- one of us twice! We strongly encourage you to get preventative maintenance done and back up your data -- there's some kind of bad technological mojo out there, and an extra hard drive is way cheaper and less of a bummer than data recovery, as we have been learning the hard way.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Esther Pearl Watson 18 Aug 2008 10:13 PM

Esther Pearl Watson - Beauty Road Trip Day One

Esther Pearl Watson, not the type to sit around twiddling her thumbs while we get her Unlovable book ready for the world, told us about her new multimedia art project when we saw her at Comic-Con, and now it's underway: she and fellow artist Martha Rich are road-tripping across the U.S.A. to interview people about their ideas of beauty, a process they're documenting on their new blog. (Hat tip to the USA Today for the links.)

We're also dying to see Esther's Unlovable video starring Leslie Hall as Tammy Pierce. I mean, come on!

The Comics Journal #292
Edited by Michael Dean and Kristy Valenti; Gary Groth, executive editor

Gary Groth interviews father and son cartoonists Gene and Kim Deitch. Academy-award-winning Gene Deitch, whose wide-ranging career has spanned 60+ years, talks about doing illustrations for The Record Changer, directing cartoons such as Munro and Krazy Kat, and creating his comic strip Terr’ble Thompson. Underground comics pioneer Kim Deitch, touches on his father’s influence, reminisces about the New York-based scene and outlines the evolution of Waldo the Cat. Plus: The innovative Grant Morrison fills us in on his X-Men run, All Star Superman, the ambitious Seven Soldiers “maxiseries” how he became one of the architects of the current DC Comics universe. Our comics gallery presents an historical essay and highlights from the turn-of-the-19th-century work of Puck cartoonist F. M. Howarth.

La Semaine est finie
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsDavid B 18 Aug 2008 6:56 AM

"La Semaine de la Bande Dessinée - A Week Celebrating the French Graphic Novel" is now over and was a rousing success by any measure. We have many photographs from the events to browse, from Wednesday's opening lecture by Kim Thompson (previously posted); Friday's opening of the David B. "My Story, My Stories" exhibit and book signing at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery:

...Saturday's David B. discussion at Seattle Central Library:

David B. slideshow talk at Seattle Central Library, 08/16/08

...and Sunday's "Romans Graphiques Meet the Graphic Novel" panel discussion at the Henry Art Gallery with panelists (L to R) Peter Bagge, David B., moderator Kim Thompson, and Jim Woodring:

David B. super-fan Karl Dotter, a.k.a. k4rl on Flickr, flew up from San Francisco for the events and has a bunch more photos and a few video clips:

Photographer Steve Sampson of the Alliance Française also took many, many great photos over the week; we'll be sure to post a link when they're up on the Alliance's website. And we recorded audio at all these events (and the Library is going to be podcasting theirs), so we should be able to bring you MP3s and possibly some multimedia in the near future.

Special thanks to all of the individuals and organizations who worked so hard to put together this fantastic week of events, and of course to the gracious and phenomenally talented David B. for making the journey, tirelessly signing and sketching, and providing such fascinating discussion. It's a great month to be a graphic novel fan in Seattle.
