Hajdu at Town Hall / Crumb at the Frye
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Robert Crumbevents 14 Apr 2008 12:39 PM

Please join us this Thursday, April 17 in welcoming David Hajdu to Seattle. A longtime friend of Fantagraphics, Hajdu is the author of The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic Book Scare and How it Changed America, which examines the hysteria surrounding the popularity of comics in the Cold War era. Hajdu is music critic for the New Republic and author of Positively 4th Street. He’ll be speaking on the subject of “Outsiders in the Panels” at 7:30 at Town Hall, 1119 Eight Avenue in Seattle. Tickets are $8 ($6 students), available at www.nextbook.org.

Also this Thursday evening at 7:00 PM, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery’s resident curator Larry Reid will speak at the Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Avenue in Seattle. Reid will present a slide lecture on the topic “WEIRDOS: Seattle’s Alternative Comics Culture in the Context of R. Crumb’s Underground.” If you have yet to see the phenomenal Crumb exhibition at the Frye, this represents one of the last opportunities to view this comprehensive collection and explore Crumb’s considerable influence on comics in the Northwest. Admission is free. Reid assures us that you’ll get your money’s worth. More info at 206.622.9250.

And don’t miss Drew Friedman’s amazing exhibition “The Fun Never Stops!” continuing through May 6 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle.

Hope to see you all soon.

The no-brainer of the year: Michael Chabon covered by Jordan Crane for McSweeney's.

And, as you'll see by visiting Design:Related, it's a conceptually complex package with three diecut jackets . (Take that carbon footprint!)

God that's gorgeous artwork.

By popular demand, we are extending our massive blowout Spring Cleaning Sale at our storefront through Wednesday, April 16! There are still some choice goodies to be had, so if you couldn't make it over the weekend, you still have a few more days to get in on the fun.

Speaking of fun, Saturday's event at the store was a blast! Here's video of happy shoppers, with audio from Martin Bland's "Randomized Control Trials":
