Johnny Ryan in VICE Illustration Art Show in London!

Johnny Ryan in VICE Illustration Art Show in London

We've mentioned before how our own Johnny Ryan is a frequent contributor to VICE Magazine. Why, he can sometimes be found drawing chipmunks blasting Ted Nugent with semen, for example!

This Friday, May 17th, at the appropriately named Pure Evil Gallery, VICE will be holding an exhibition of work from some of their favorite illustrators, including Johnny --  "just so we can stick all their drawings up on a wall and show everybody else how great they are," they say.

The exhibition is going to include a selection of new prints, work that's been featured in VICE and original drawings especially for the show, which are designed to give an insight into how the people who do drawings for them go about doing their drawings. 

The Pure Evil Gallery is located at 108 Leonard Street in London. The show runs through Sunday, June 2nd.

Caravan of Comics Heads from Australia to Seattle!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 13 May 2013 11:36 AM

Caravan of Comics

A metaphorical Winnebago (one that drives on water) containing 7 Australian comics creators has embarked upon a three-week North American tour, and this Saturday, May 18th, they'll stop at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!

Come meet Scarlette Baccini, Mirranda Burton, Marijka Gooding, Patrick Alexander, Gregory Mackay, Dan Hayward and Bruce Mutard from 1:00 to 8:00 PM! They'll be giving a short presentation, discussing their work, and screening the feature-length documentary Graphic Novels! Melbourne!, which illuminates how Melbourne's strange water produces so many good comics. 

Join us for the International Comics Celebration this weekend, and let's help welcome them to Seattle!

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.  

Cover Uncovered: Lost Cat by Jason
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under JasonComing Attractions 10 May 2013 2:40 PM

Lost Cat by Jason

Jason's new graphic novel Lost Cat will be found in stores in a couple of months. It's his longest and most complex work to date. The cat gets found on page 5, but there's plenty more mystery and surprises on the following 145 pages, and don't be surprised if you tear up at the end. This is primo Jason, folks.

For months Jason has been posting teasers from the book, which we've been sharing on our Tumblr blog. We'll have more previews coming your way soon — but why wait to put in your pre-order?

Photoset: Green Eggs and Maakies by Tony Millionaire
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Tony Millionairepreviewsnew releasesMaakies 10 May 2013 1:10 PM

"Graphically elegant, done in a style reminiscent of early comics masters like Winsor McCay and Johnny Gruelle (who drew Raggedy Ann); the content, on the other hand, comes bubbling up from a part of the imagination that polite cartoonists lock away." – Charles McGrath, The New York Times

"So glad you and your family like Father Ted. You've already thanked me with the entertainment you've given me over the years. In fact, the show might not have been quite the same if I hadn't discovered Maakies all those years ago." – Graham Linehan

Green Eggs and Maakies 
by Tony Millionaire

120-page black & white 12.25” x 4.75” hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-618-8

First Look: Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 by Leslie Stein
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsLeslie SteinComing Attractions 10 May 2013 12:13 PM

EOTMC2

EOTMC2 pages

Behold these glimpses of an early advance copy of the bigger, even better second volume of Leslie Stein's Eye of the Majestic Creature. The continuing story of our hero Larrybear fleshes out her backstory and gives her a potential new love interest. Depth of character and keenness of observation elevate these warm, offbeat stories far above your average slacker comedy and create a world you'll want to hang out in. Imagine if Buddy Bradley were a gentle, artsy, laid-back girl instead of a grouchy, cynical, rage-prone guy. Add a dash of magical realism and psychedelia. Spin around in circles a few times. You're getting the feel.

We expect the book to be available toward the end of next month. You can read a 15-page excerpt and pre-order a copy here; we also have a nice discount offer on Volumes 1 and 2 together so you can get the whole story at once.

Green Eggs and Maakies by Tony Millionaire

Green Eggs and Maakies
by Tony Millionaire

120-page black & white 12.25" x 4.75" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-618-8

Ships in: June 2013 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

We do like Tony Millionaire's Maakies, yes we do.

For almost two decades, Tony Millionaire's Maakies has been one of the best and most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over a dozen of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers including The Village Voice, L.A Weekly, Chicago Reader, and Seattle's The Stranger. (It was also a short-lived Adult Swim animated series, The Drinky Crow Show, in 2008.)

As written and drawn by renaissance lush-cum-degenerate Millionaire, Maakies features the comical adventures of a drunken crow on the high seas, blending vaudeville-style humor (with plenty of bodily fluids and grievous bodily harm) and a breathtakingly beautiful line that harkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Green Eggs and Maakies is our eighth collection and features yet another two years' worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip’s elegant and classical style.

"In his surrealist impulse and draftsman’s brio, Millionaire is the closest thing we have to George Herriman of Krazy Kat." — John Hodgman, The New York Times

"Tricking brains and blowing minds has been Millionaire's modus operandi for years, which is why his existential antihero Drinky Crow spends a good amount of time trying to destroy his own." – Wired

Badges of Past San Diego Comic Cons...
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Linda MedleyGahan WilsonCCIart 8 May 2013 2:55 PM

SDCC BADGE

Linda Medley, cartoonist of Castle Waiting and much more, recently shared some old Comic-Con International or San Diego Comic Con badges with us. Above is her FIRST Comic-Con badge. Twelve years later, Medley designed the badge for the 1991 con (below). As you can see Toucan existed even then, pre-blog. This was an extra they gave Linda so no names on it and the official one had a slightly different design printed with METALLIC INK. This is so bad ass.

Medley badge

The 2000 SDCC badge still sported artwork: DINOSAURS by Gahan Wilson (his new book coming out soon)

2000 San Diego badge

Badges need only have three things: the name of the show, the year and your name but some amazing art can make the show more memorable! And while I understand the need for currency level standards of 'authenticity' to keep all the photoshop pros from creating fake badges.... c'mon:

San Diego badge

Bland. How cool would a drawing with the linework printed in the holographic paper be? It'd probably have the power to BLIND PEOPLE.
Linda Medley
