New Comics Day 12/24/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesNew Comics Day 24 Dec 2008 1:16 PM
I thought I saw one source say that Beasts! Book 2 was going to arrive in comic shops this week, but it's not on the official list. Maybe give a call to your local shop -- you'll want to do that anyway, to confirm their holiday hours. Otherwise, nothing from us is scheduled to ship this week.
Snow, please stop.

A Snowy Salute
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under staff 23 Dec 2008 2:03 PM
I just want to give a public salute to our intrepid Fantagraphics staffers who have been braving Seattle Snowpocalypse 2008 for the past week or so (nearly a foot of snowfall in parts of the city, where 2 inches is considered a blizzard, with more coming tomorrow), risking life and limb in hazardous driving conditions and enduring wretched public transportation hassles to keep our office running, our customer service phone line manned (1-800-657-1100, call in your order today), and our bookstore open and staffed, while the rest of us work from home in comfort and safety. Kudos to you, brave souls!
