SuperTrash by Jacques Boyreau - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under new releasesJacques Boyreau 16 Sep 2014 10:00 AM

"[Editor Jacques Boyreau] has a knack for picking images; much like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart and hardcore porn, Boyreau knows it when he sees it. And luckily, he shares it, this time from the visual-presentation experts of Fantagraphics Books — a match made in poster-art heaven." – Bookgasm

"Makes Antonin Artaud look like a picture of mental health." – Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Derrida Reframed: A Guide for the Visual Arts Student

Charles Burns and Chris Wright at Fantagraphics Bookstore this Weekend
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under hooray for HollywoodFantagraphics BookstoreeventsChris WrightCharles Burns 15 Sep 2014 10:37 AM

SugarSkullSmaller  Blacklung.small

Famed alternative cartoonist Charles Burns will appear at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this Friday, September 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM presenting his new book Sugar Skull. He will be followed on Sunday, September 21 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM by Chris Wright signing copies of his recent graphic novel Blacklung.

Seattle native Charles Burns, now a resident of Philadelphia, was among the founders of the alternative comix movement in the 1970s when he emerged from The Evergreen State College with Lynda Barry and Matt Groening. This trio of gifted artists began syndicating their innovative comic strips in alternative weeklies, which gave momentum to a new approach to cartooning. Burns' groundbreaking graphic novel Black Hole, serialized by Fantagraphics Books, is considered a masterpiece of the form. The story is set in 1970s Seattle and was recently featured in the critically acclaimed film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Burns will be signing copies of his highly anticipated new book Sugar Skull, which completes a trilogy that began with X'ed Out, followed by The Hive. Burns' unique graphic sensibility has left and indelible mark on Seattle's culture through his early work with Sub Pop and The Rocket. Join us in welcoming this influential artist back home on Friday, September 19.

Chris Wright is among a new breed of emerging artists building on the foundation laid by Burns and others. His recent graphic novel from Fantagraphics Books, Blacklung, combines elements of otherworldly adventure and horror rendered in brutal detail - unquestionably one of the most impressive graphic novel debuts in recent years. The signing on Sunday, September 21 marks the artist's first visit to Seattle. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of Seattle's historic Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sunday until 5:00 PM. 206.658.0110.

Now available for the first time in paperback, Wilfred Santiago’s instant classic 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente is a human drama of courage, faith, and dignity, inspired by the life of the acclaimed Pittsburgh Pirates baseball star who died too young. 21 chronicles Clemente's life from his early days growing up, through the highlights of his career, capturing the grit of his rise from an impoverished Puerto Rican childhood to the majesty of his performance on the field, and to his fundamental decency off of it. Santiago's inviting style combines realistic attention to detail and expressive cartooning to great effect.
