How did he do this!?! It's not scratchboard and it's not ink. Even resident alchemist Ted Jouflas doesn't know how Arnold Roth drew (?) this savage portrait of Mike Wallace from HUMBUG #5.
Look at it! Or don't look at it on the stupid computer. See the real thing this Saturday March 7th at the Fantagraphics Bookstore in gorgeous Georgetown Washington and help us celebrate the release of HUMBUG our latest pièce de résistance!
Back in those heady 1990s, the guys at our warehouse seemingly had a lot of time on their hands. To wit: these tapes, which have been semi-legendary in inner-Fanta circles for years. Former warehouse staffer Dave Holmes -- also the front man in the legendary Seattle band The Fall-Outs -- routinely entertained his fellow warehouse coworkers with prank phone calls to local radio talk show host Susan Powter. Somehow, Susan never seemed to catch on to the joke. Dave always used the names of his fellow coworkers for the calls, and even adopts a fairly impressive Australian accent when he calls in as "Martin" -- a nod to our Aussie warehouse asst. mgr. Martin Bland (also one of Seattle's best drummers, for bands like Monkeywrench, Bloodloss and Lubricated Goat, not to mention his amazing sound experiments). I haven't heard these tapes in years but listening again now, they're as funny as ever.
Fantagraphics titles scheduled to arrive at comics shops this week:
Check out our descriptions and previews at the links above, give your local shop a jingle to make sure they ordered the books, count up your nickels and then trundle on down there tomorrow.
