Waiting for the Great Pumpkin by Charles M. Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under PeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 23 Jun 2014 1:52 PM

There are few greater joys in life than being able to revisit the stories of one's childhood. Except, perhaps, getting to share them with others in a cute, fun-sized book!

Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts strips are a cornerstone of American 1950's-60's culture, and his beloved characters, including Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Linus, and Lucy remain household names to this day. In our latest pocket-sized Peanuts gift book, Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected those Halloween-themed strips revolving around Linus' unshakeable belief in, and proselytizing of, the Great Pumpkin — a mysterious figure who rises from pumpkin patches every Halloween to bring presents to good kids.

Read our 13-page (1.1 MB) excerpt and, while you're at it, avoid the fall rush and pre-order your copy now!

Blowout at Fantagraphics Bookstore
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under rockKim ThompsonFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 23 Jun 2014 10:42 AM

SoundWave 

Honk Fest West on Friday was a blast! Over 30 cacophonous brass bands from across the country descended on Georgetown for this annual gathering. As was the case last year, the event began on a somber note with a funeral march in front of Fantagraphics Bookstore in memory of Kim Thompson on the first anniversary of his passing. The concerts climaxed with a pitched percussion battle between the Super Bowl champion Seahawks Blue Thunder and the Garfield Drumline (alma mater of musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, and Macklemore.) Too much fun!

McGinn_Honk_Fest
Our good friend and former Mayor Mike McGinn dropped in to do some comix shopping during the festival. Lest we be accused of favoritism, we also played host to current Mayor Ed Murray a week earlier at the colorful Georgetown Carnival below. Good times.

Bomb Run and Other Stories (EC Comics Library)

Bomb Run and Other Stories (EC Comics Library)
by John Severin, Will Elder, Harvey Kurtzman

264-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-749-9

See Previews / Order Now

John Severin draws war stories so starkly, stunningly realistic, you'll want to hug the ground to dodge the bullets whizzing around your head.

With Severin's eloquent artistry, Harvey Kurtzman's precisely paced scripts, and Will Elder's heroic attention to detail, these 32 taut, dramatically expressive tales of combat set a new standard for accuracy, emotional authenticity, and psychological impact.

Severin's astounding versatility takes you down into the trenches and high up in the air, across the Pacific and straight into a bloody D-Day attack. Look inside and witness the human cost of armed conflict from the Roman Empire to the American Revolution, from the Civil War to World War I, and from World War II to Korea.

"The minute you looked at his artwork you knew you were looking at a John Severin illustration; it could be no one else. Besides his inimitable style, there was a feeling of total authenticity to whatever he drew, whether it was a Western, a crime story, a superhero saga or a science fiction yarn." — Stan Lee

"...I am not only appreciative...but also very impressed. [The books] are spectacular packages of their featured artist and their stories." — Al Feldstein

Over 200 Pages of Pre-Spider-Man, Pre-Comics Code Horror Comics by Steve Ditko

"This book is chock-full of intense faces and monsters and colors. Strong blacks, horror comics, mean revenge, strange surgery…It's all horror comics from before Fredric Wertham illegalized good-time comic books." – Vice

"The tales in this tome are sheer pre-Comics Code Authority horror, complete with stabbings, decapitations, mutilations, and disintegrations. …Ditko's talent jumps off the page and one of the benefits of reading the stories in chronological order is seeing his art evolve and improve." – Rue Morgue

"This exhilarating collection of stories by the comic-book artist who co-created Spider-Man captures all the glorious chills and blood spills from the first two years of his career." – Entertainment Weekly
