Tony Millionaire at Fantagraphics Bookstore this Saturday!
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Tony MillionairerockFantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 6 Mar 2014 11:35 AM

Sock Monkey postcard

Join us on Saturday, March 8, at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as we celebrate the publication of Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey Treasury with an art exhibition, book signing, and music concert.

Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey is one of the great all-ages comics of the new millennium. The precocious sock monkey Uncle Gabby and his innocent pal Mr. Crow are the heroes of this endearing new collection. Millionaire will also sign copies of his latest strip collection Green Eggs and Maakies, blending vaudeville-style humor and a breathtakingly beautiful line that recalls the glory days of the American comic strip.

The festive show on Saturday, March 8, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM features 15 original Millionaire drawings and music by Ashley Eriksson. As a child in Los Angeles, Eriksson sang on the Ren and Stimpy Christmas Album; as an adult she sings "Island Song," the closing credits for Cartoon Network's cult-sensation Adventure Time. On Saturday she’ll sing from her recent K Records release Colours.

This event coincides with the lively Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic district. Don’t miss this chance to meet one of the truly extraordinary artists of our time.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street, just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

Dungeon Quest continues on the comiXology path
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Joe Dalydigital comicscomiXology 5 Mar 2014 3:37 PM

Dungeon Quest #3

comiXology gets crazier as Dungeon Quest rolls on (and rolls another one). The serialized and digitized fun continues from pages of Joe Daly's full graphic novel Dungeon Quest: Book Two Issue #3. The gang forages for food and finds a little more than they bargained for: some new drugs! What friendships will deepen or be forever ruined by this new quest into the landscape of altered perceptions? Get the next installment for only $1.99 today!

"If you can laugh at your obsession while still poring over weapon and armor upgrades, the Dungeon Quest series should be on your couch next to the game manual and open laptop. . .It's absurd, engrossing, very adult, and pitch perfect." -Alex Carr, Shelfari

Introducing Fantagraphics' Fall 2014 Books
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Coming Attractions 5 Mar 2014 10:32 AM

Fantagraphics Fall 2014 Catalog

Behold: the future! Our catalog for titles from September through the end of the year is out and details are leaking into the infosphere, so we're opening the floodgates and giving you the complete rundown.

The headliner is, of course, the massive, no-holds-barred Complete Zap Comix box set, which is still currently evolving in format — stay tuned! Fall will be a banner season for Peanuts and Disney fans, with a bounty of new volumes and fun, attractive new packages of old favorites. We welcome Lucy Knisley, Dylan Horrocks, and the Massive gay manga phenomenon to the Fantagraphics fold this season, and bring back stalwarts like the Hernandez brothers, Wilfred Santiago, Dash Shaw, Marguerite Van Cook & James Romberger, Richard Sala, Jordan Crane, Hans Rickheit, and Max. We also have new editions and packages of some contemporary favorites. Beloved classics series continue, with new volumes of Nancy (along with the long-awaited How to Read Nancy), Prince Valiant, and The EC Comics Library, along with a major Basil Wolverton collection/bio. And it wouldn't be Fantagraphics without a couple of curveballs: a collection of jazz photography and our very first (non-vispo) poetry book! Plus, as they say, more.

All of these titles are now listed on our website — peruse our 2014 Releases category for all the listings with the most up-to-date information and pre-order links as they become available. Read/download a digital version of our print catalog for some additional info bits and sneak-peek artwork (keeping in mind that all product data and imagery is preliminary and subject to change).

The Blighted Eye is the most copious, the most diverse, and the most lavish compilation of original comic art ever published — all from the mind-boggling collection of Glenn Bray. Bray was an enthusiast of marginal or outsider American pop culture when he started to collect original comic art in 1965 — a time when very few people, including the artists themselves, truly valued the original art. Bray has, over the last nearly 50 years, amassed the most eclectic collection of original comic art in private hands. The Blighted Eye is not only the greatest collection of original art ever produced, but a testament to Bray's dogged and visionary commitment to preserving the work by the greatest artists working in an art form habitually sneered at by cultural gatekeepers throughout most of the 20th century.

The book features work by a pantheon of cartooning masters, including Charles Addams, Carl Barks, Charles Burns, Al Capp, Dan Clowes, Jack Cole, R. Crumb, Jack Davis, Kim Deitch, Will Elder, Al Feldstein, Virgil Finlay, Drew Friedman, Chester Gould, Justin Green, Rick Griffin, Bill Griffith, Matt Groening, George Grosz, V.T. Hamlin, Jaime Hernandez, George Herriman, Al Hirshfeld, Graham Ingels, Bernard Krigstein, Harvey Kurtzman, Gary Panter, Virgil Partch, Savage Pencil, Peter Pontiac, Charles Rodrigues, Spain Rodriguez, Charles Schulz, Gilbert Shelton, Joost Swarte, Stanislav Szukalski, Irving Tripp, Chris Ware, S. Clay Wilson, Basil Wolverton, Wallace Wood, Jim Woodring, Art Young, and — it should go without saying — many more.

With the increasing sophistication of comics over the last 20 and 30 years in the form of graphic novels, journalism, and memoirs, the cartoon form is finally taking its place alongside other popular narrative media — novels, films, theatre — as an art form to reckon with, widely reviewed and embraced by a discriminating reading public.

Simultaneous with this growing acceptance of comics as a literary form has been the recognition among museums and galleries that the artists' original drawings are art objects. Public exhibitions of original comics art has proliferated over the last decade with such shows as Masters of American Comics at LA's Hammer Museum and R. Crumb's Underground at Seattle's Frye Museum. Readers have been able to see this original art in museum catalogues and the occasional compilation of work digitally scanned directly from the original art. Although drawn for print, the hand-crafted original art — brush strokes and pen lines inked on paper — offers a beauty and an unique insight into the form, a different way of perceiving the artist's work.

Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano

Nijigahara Holograph (虹ヶ原ホログラフ)
by Inio Asano
translated by Matt Thorn

296-page black & white 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-583-9

See Previews / Order Now

Butterflies ominously proliferate as children whisper rumors of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school. To appease its wrath, they decide to offer it a sacrifice — a human one. But this is only the beginning of Nijigahara Holograph, which takes place in two separate timelines and involves the suicidal Amahiko; Kohta, the lovestruck bully; their teacher Miss Sakaki, whose heavily bandaged face remains a mystery; and many more brothers, sisters, parents, co-workers, teachers, aggressors and victims who are all inextricably linked to one another. Ten years later, all will have to face what they've done or suffered through — and maybe the end of the world.

Nijigahara Holograph — complex, challenging, and elliptical — was named one of the most anticipated new manga at Comic-Con International: San Diego. Hailed as a voice of the current generation in Japan, Inio Asano, whose Solanin was nominated for Eisner and Harvey awards (and was made into a feature film), delves into David Lynchian territory with this psychological horror story.
