Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - First Look

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - Cover

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - Back Cover

Arsène Schrauwen by Olivier Schrauwen - Inside Page

With its lightly textured cover and interior pages filled with Olivier Schrauwen's unique artwork, flipping through an advance copy of Arsène Schrauwen is both a tactile experience and visual treat. This first look shows just how varied the illustrations can be from page to page—and yet, it all ties together in a cogent, if surreal, biographical account of the artist's grandfather.

Ollie Schrauwen's first full-length graphic novel is not to be missed. We'll have more previews coming up on the Flog, and the book is available for pre-order now!

Peanuts Every Sunday 1956-1960 (Vol. 2) by Charles M. Schulz - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsPeanutsnew releasesCharles M Schulz 8 Oct 2014 11:30 AM

"Peanuts was, is, and will continue to be the finest comic in the world. Bravo." – Ray Bradbury

"The daily black-and-white comics were great but the full-color Sunday strips gave Schulz a big, beautiful canvas to let his expert pacing and amazing linework breathe in a rainbow of color…it’s really the entire mix of characters …and their mix of adult prickliness and childlike naiveté that made Charles Schulz’s iconic comics strips so timeless." – Evan Narcisse, Kotaku

Support Last Gasp: An APE Report
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Untagged  7 Oct 2014 9:06 PM

  

I want to direct you all to THISLast Gasp is the only vital, surviving publisher of the original underground comix movement, truly living up to its name. They're also the last meaningful, independent distributor of just about every great non-mainsteam comic (plus lots more) you've ever read. This is no coincidence. You couldn't write a book about American counterculture without Gasp's founder "Baba" Ron Turner  figuring prominently. Well, you could, but it would be a lame book. Last Gasp is at the vanguard of promoting, selling and publishing books that aren't lame, and has been doing so now for something like 45 years. Gasp has been a huge advocate for Fantagraphics over the years. I feel a deep respect, love and debt for what Ron, his son Colin, and the rest of the staff do. Please consider lending your support. 

Just this weekend, I was working the Fantagraphics' tables at the Alternative Press Expo  in San Francisco. On Sunday, Ron, always the gentleman, came over to me to say hi and catch up. When he found out I was working the show solo, he insisted on getting someone from the Last Gasp staff to help me. I kindly assured him I was fine, but he wasn't giving up without a fight. I don't think he ever does. So you must know that if he's asking for help, he really needs it. Support Last Gasp.

Are We Feeling Buzzed Yet?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Zippy the PinheadBill Griffith 7 Oct 2014 8:33 PM

 

Nothing will get me off my lazy Flog! butt than the convergence of my two favorite things: comics and beer. Dave Eiffert is the President and General Manager of Snoqualmie Falls Brewing , located just east of Fantagraphics' home of Seattle. Snoqualmie Falls is famous for being used as a locale in Twin Peaks, but the brewery is increasingly what beer lovers like myself associate the locale with. Eiffert grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the late '60s and early '70s, where he was exposed to Bill Griffith ’s comic strip Zippy the Pinhead . He's been reading the strip and buying Zippy books ever since (did I mention we publish all of those ?), so it was probably inevitable that he would approach Bill about a Zippy-themed beer. Bill loved the idea and here's the result: Zippy Lemon Ale!

  

I haven't had a chance to try one yet, but I'm eager to. Eiffert explains that, "We made this one a mild 25 IBUs, and started with a clear high gravity wheat grist beer made with an Abbey yeast strain and Czech Saaz hops before we dose it with the lemon juice. It is a great refresher for Indian Summer, and there’s no need to slice up some poor defenseless lemon."

Here's pic from Bill himself, with Zippy Lemon Ale next to some other kindred "spirits":  

 

STANFORD: A Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez Talk

ALTERNATIVE COMICS: THROUGH THE EYES OF THE HERNANDEZ BROTHERS
 
This Thursday, October 9th at Stanford University, not one but ALL three of the Hernandez Brothers are meeting to give a free talk from 5:30-7:30pm.This event will celebrate alternative comics by bringing renowned artists, the Hernandez Brothers, or Los Bros Hernandez, as they are often called, to campus. As perhaps its most well-known figures, the Hernandez Brothers offer unique insight into the complex dynamics of the alternative comics industry. Love & Rockets, the brainchild of Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez, emerged from the confluence of punk rock culture and the Latino community in Los Angeles in the 1980s. Subversive and groundbreaking, Love and Rockets would come to virtually define alternative comics. With its cast of highly individual, strongly-characterized women, its richly rendered and evocative depictions of barrio life, masterful cartooning and characters that aged in real time, Love and Rockets set the stage for an incredible flowering in alternative comics not seen since the 60s. This public panel discussion will feature Jaime, Gilbert and Mario Hernandez, in conversation with Ramon Saldivar (Professor, English & Comparative Literature, Stanford) and Scott Bukatman (Professor, Film & Media Studies, Art & Art History, Stanford). This event will address the history of alternative comics writ large, and the crucial roles of the Hernandez Brothers, or Los Bros Hernandez, in this story, as artists, independent producers, and Latinos. There will also be a book sale.

This event is possible thanks to the generous co-sponsorship of the Stanford Arts Institute, the Graphic Novel Project and the Creative Writing program, the Program in Modern Thought and Literature, the Program in Writing and Rhetoric, the Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages, the American Studies program and the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity.

Lucy Knisley's New and Improved Website!
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under webcomicsLucy Knisleyart 7 Oct 2014 1:09 PM
Age of license
Fantagraphics' cartoonist Lucy Knisley just unveiled a new website and it is a thang of beauty! It comes to your computer via wifi complete with some quality photos of her comics like *coughcough* An Age of License and some peaks at pages from Displacement from your favorite comics publisher. Really, you need to go see the photos on her site, we can only handle 450 pixels-wide and gosh-darn-it, nice photos of watercolor chips are like artist porn. Still on the fence about her books? Read some original webcomics there or read a short preview on our website. 
 
You can also see examples of her work for hire and commissions, should you yourself want to snag an original drawing or watercolor. Just a word to the wise from Knisley herself, "Just, uh, don't look at it on your mobile platform yet. Ahem. Still working on that part."

80-page color 6" x 9" hardcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-746-8

Ships in: October 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

The precocious sock monkey Uncle Gabby, his innocent pal Mr. Crow, and their tiny doll-friend, Inches, are the heroes of this funny, unsettling, and all-new Sock Monkey storybook. Convinced that their human, Ann-Louise, has been kidnapped by a vicious monster dubbed the Amarok, our heroes bravely venture into the Haunted Woods to rescue her. The epic quest that follows takes them by sea, land, and air through many fantastic lands and introduces a cast of fanciful characters and creatures including the Trumbernick (the pixie shaman of the forest), a giant sea monster, the Guardsmen of Bear Town, and a flock of flying harpies. Beloved by adults and children, Sock Monkey hearkens back to all-ages fantasy-adventure such as The Wizard of Oz or Alice in Wonderland.
