Now available: Explainers by Jules Feiffer (discounted, imperfect 1st Edition copies)

Explainers by Jules Feiffer

Explainers: The Complete Village Voice Strips (1956-66) [First Edition - Imperfect Copies]
By Jules Feiffer

Our final few copies of the First Edition all bear minor damage incurred in shipping and handling. We are offering them at a discounted price. (The Second Edition is due in January 2009.) Other sellers are currently offering this book at inflated collector prices -- get yours right now for a steal!

In 1956, a relatively unknown cartoonist by the name of Jules Feiffer started contributing a strip to the only alternative weekly published in the US, a small radical newspaper called The Village Voice. His strip tackled just about every issue, private and public, that affected the sentient American: relationships, sexuality, love, family, parents, children, psychoanalysis, neuroses, presidents, politicians, media, race, class, labor, religiion, foreign policy, war, and one or two other existential questions. It was the first time that the American public had been subjected to a weekly dose of comics that so uncompromisingly and wittily confronted individuals' private fears and society's public transgressions. Explainers is the first of four volumes collecting Feiffer's entire run of weekly strips from The Village Voice. This edition contains approximately 500 strips originally published between 1956 and 1966 in a brick-like landscape hardcover format.

568-page black & white 9.25" x 5.25" hardcover • regularly $28.99, sale price $19.95

Dig the party scene
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoPeter BaggeFantagraphics BookstoreeventsBeasts 15 Dec 2008 5:33 PM

Yes you can! Yours truly recorded videos of every song played by Peter Bagge's new band Can You Imagine? at our gala Beasts! print show opening and 2nd Anniversary party at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery last Saturday and plunked 'em on our YouTube page, where you can enjoy the strains of their original (correction) the Herman's Hermits hit "A Must to Avoid," embedded above, and a dozen more swingin' numbers!

Of course we have photos of the exhibit and the party crowd, too, including our special guests (not to mention Peter Bagge & Steve Fisk's erotic birthday cake). Check them out in this slideshow; to see all the annotations and credits, browse through manually. (By the way, if you missed the opening, don't despair, good prints are still available — hustle on down to Georgetown on your little Bobby Orr legs.)
