For those of you watching FXX's Man Seeking Woman, you were probably pleasantly surprised when a nightstand featured some of our newest comics: Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter BaggeMegahex by Simon HanselmannCosplayers by Dash Shaw. Until they were replaced by a copy of Infinite Jest in an attempt to "seem cooler". Don't they know?! DON'T THEY KNOW COMICS ARE THE COOLEST?! Thanks to Noah Kuttler and Robin McConnell for the heads-up.

Inner City Romance at Fantagraphics Bookstore on Valentine's Day
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Guy ColwellFantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 27 Jan 2015 2:28 PM

Guy Colwell's comic book serial Inner City Romance appeared in 1972, illustrating the unvarnished reality of an emerging urban counterculture. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is pleased to commemorate the new anthology of this provocative work with an exhibition of original drawings, paintings, and prints opening Saturday, February 14 (on Valentine's Day, appropriately enough.)

 Inner_City_Romance

Oakland native Colwell distinguished himself from the dominant themes of the period's underground comix movement by rendering in explicit detail the crime, poverty, death and desperation of his inner city protagonists. His approach is at once alluring and grotesque. As Matt Gonzalez observes in Juxtapoz magazine, "Colwell's art is motivated by two primary sentiments: first, a deep political strain meant to expose and offer commentary on political, economic, and racial disparities that exist in our society, and second, an awareness of man's uncomfortable relationship with nature and sexuality." His comix, drawings, and paintings examine similar themes.

 Feb_2015_Art_Attack

Join us on Saturday, February 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM as we present the work of this accomplished artist. This event coincides with the 7th anniversary celebration of the Georgetown Art Attack featuring romantic visual and performing arts presentations throughout the enchanting industrial district. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.), minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
