Kim Thompson has posted an annotated list of the 20 artists featured in his "Vingt sur 20" slide lecture (given at the Alliance Française on July 16, 2008) on The Comics Journal message board for your reference and discussion.
We hinted that we might be bringing you audio of Kim's talk, but Kim will be presenting an improved version at SPX this Fall, so we're going to wait for that!

Announcing our Ghost World: Special Edition poster giveaway contest! Pre-order Ghost World: Special Edition by Daniel Clowes directly from Fantagraphics.com and your name will be placed in a random drawing to receive a signed copy of the ultra-limited-edition silkscreen show print (shown below) for the Ghost World: Special Edition exhibit opening this Friday, August 29, at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. (The poster will be available for purchase ONLY in person at the FB&G and is sure to sell out.)
Some rules: limit one entry per person (multiple orders, or ordering multiple copies, while appreciated, will not increase your chances); to be eligible for the drawing, orders must be placed via the Fantagraphics.com website and received before midnight Pacific time the night before Ghost World: Special Edition is listed as "in stock" on the New Releases page of Fantagraphics.com (currently expected to be the week of September 15, but this is subject to change up until the last minute); if you've already placed your order, YES, you're automatically eligible for the drawing; we only have one (1) poster to give away; the winner will be chosen randomly and contacted via email. Good luck!
