The Lonesome Go by Tim Lane - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Tim LanepreviewsComing Attractions 29 Jul 2014 2:00 PM

Tied loosely together by the experience of wandering, the collection of short stories in The Lonesome Go represents Tim Lane's continued exploration of "existential Americana." And the richly-drawn, detailed pages invite contemplation, rereading, and a wandering experience for the reader as well.

In our 22-page downloadable excerpt (12.9 MB), we are introduced to a bleakly introspective train passenger, a fourteen-year-old train hopper, and an unexpected, unwelcome Christmas guest. Read on, and perhaps wander over to our presale afterwards. We are expecting an early October 2014 release, with more previews on the way until then!

An Age of License by Lucy Knisley - Inside Page

At Comic-Con last week, we completely sold out of our booth copies of Lucy Knisley's upcoming travellogue, An Age of License! For those of you who weren't able to snag a copy then, here is a peek inside Knisley's latest memoir. More photos and video to come soon, and the book is due to land on bookstore shelves and at our warehouse in September.

Until then, grab a croissant, sip an espresso, and keep your eyes peeled for further updates on the Flog! An Age of License is also on presale, so you can reserve your copy now.

Weekly OCD 7.28.14
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Peter BaggeOCDLucy KnisleyLane MilburnGraham IngelsAn Age of LicenseAl Feldstein 29 Jul 2014 10:15 AM

This week's of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

An Age of License by Lucy KnisleyReview: An Age of License by Lucy Knisley

"…the in-process method of writing and drawing her adventures as they happen gives a vibrant immediacy to situations and sensations. Belying her relatively simple but charming cartooning style, Knisley pages are a cornucopia of information and detail: oversized seagulls, bilingual schoolchildren, and lying sat-navs populate her travels." – Publishers Weekly

 

Twelve Gems by Lane MilburnReview: Twelve Gems by Lane Milburn

"In Twelve Gems, Milburn has created a playful homage to the genre that also incorporates some of the “Marvel-isms” that were injected into the form in the '60s and '70s by Jack Kirby (primarily in The Fantastic Four and Thor) and Jim Starlin (during his stints on Captain Marvel and Warlock). The result is a work that can be enjoyed by a diverse body of comics readers, ranging from old school fans of the form all the way through to newbies who just saw the Guardians of the Galaxy movie." – Bill Boichel, Comics Workbook

 

Sucker Bait and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)Review: Sucker Bait and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by Graham Ingels, Al Feldstein, et al.

"Graham Ingels is the poet laureate of the EC horror comics. His stories are some of the most iconic of the entire line, full of newly revived corpses, horrific villains and some of the scariest moments that have ever been put down on the comics page." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

 

Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter BaggeReview: Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter Bagge

"Buddy’s life paralleled my own in some sense (crap jobs, weirdo roommates), but essentially I am not, nor will I ever be like Buddy Bradley. I certainly know the type, however, and therein lies the appeal of Buddy as a main character. The revolving cast of nut jobs that Buddy attracts to himself, and is attracted by, doesn’t hurt the appeal or comic potential either, nor does the sharp wit, great dialogue and Bagge’s unique style of rubbery, quavering limbs, popping eyes and massive pie holes shouting and swearing off the pages." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Helen is an amateur bird watcher and naturalist who lives in a rural community in Wales. When local farmer Bill tells Helen that a "rare bird" named Emrys killed himself at Cuddig farm, she decides to investigate. One of the dogs at the farm tells her, by way of explanation, that Emrys "had no feathers and couldn’t fly." She plucks an old cosmetic kit from a dumpster and discovers it belonged to Emrys. Inventorying the kit's contents, she finds a spent .12 gauge shotgun shell. Her attempt to learn more about Emrys turns into a journey of self-discovery and ultimately a hard-fought reconciliation with the world — as it is. Carol Swain's Gast is the rare kind of contemporary graphic novel that critics are conjuring when they exult over the promise of the art form — a philosophically mature vision, uniquely executed by an artist wholly in control of her craft. In Gast, Helen's inner life is slowly revealed through a mixture of naturalistic detail and phantasmagoric occurrences.

Eisner Awards for Jacques Tardi, Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Kim ThompsonJaime HernandezJacques TardiGilbert Hernandezawards 28 Jul 2014 12:48 PM

bros
It was bound to happen with 32 years of comics in the making. On Friday at the Eisner Awards Ceremony, the two cartoonists Fantagraphics has grown up with received their due. In the category of Best Writer/Artist, Jaime Hernandeznbsp;received an Eisner for his work on Love and Rockets to be followed quickly by Gilbert Hernandez for his standalone story "Untitled" in Love and Rockets: New Stories #6 (page 59 for those of you at home). 

GIlbert

Notes
Gilbert gave a touching speech and we even snapped a photo of his notes. Jaime juggled his Eisner a bit, speechless yet very endearing. 

Jaime

 AND Félicitations are due to Jacques Tardi and Jean-Pierre Verney!

The Eisner for Best U.S. Edition of International Material has been awarded to Goddamn This WarCreated 15 years after the completion of his Eisner Award-winning World War I masterwork It Was the War of the Trenches, Tardi's Goddamn This War! is a brand new, wholly individual graphic novel that serves as a companion piece to Trenches, but can be read entirely on its own. Told with gritty insight, wit, and despair-sharing Trenches sustained sense of outrage, pitch-black gallows humor, and impeccably scrupulous historical exactitude-this book is not to be missed.
Tardi

Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds accepted the awards on behalf of Tardi, Verney and the late great translater and our publisher Kim Thompson. This was one of the last books Kim worked on from start to finish and Reynolds put it best when he said that Kim wanted to show the world the best European comics/bande dessinee possible.

If you don't have this masterpiece yet, aim your binoculars at the Fantagraphics website, where you can pre-order a copy of Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War Box Set! Shipping this November!

Thank you again to all who came out and congratulated Gilbert and Jaime the rest of the convention. More pictures soon!

Shimura Takako’s groundbreaking, critically acclaimed, and beloved Wandering Son continues to explore gender identity among its cast of middle school students in our 7th volume. Nitori-kun gets his first signs of acne. This may well be the end of the world. But when he turns to nationally famous model Anna-chan for help, events take an unexpected turn. Meanwhile, Nitori-kun and Chiba-san are scouted by the theater club after the success of their gender-bending play, The Rose of Versailles. But when Takatsuki-san congratulates Chiba-san, Chiba-san calls her a hypocrite. If Takatsuki-san wanted to join the theater club, she wouldn’t congratulate Chiba-san — she’d be jealous. So says Chiba-san, but what does she know?
