Sneak peek video & photos: Where Demented Wented
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoRory Hayespreviewsnew releases 14 Aug 2008 2:54 PM

Is it still a "sneak peek" if the book is already available? If you haven't seen it yet, sure! Today we're bringing you a belated video and photo teaser of Where Demented Wented: The Art and Comics of Rory Hayes, the first-ever collection of work from the controversial underground/outsider cartoonist. Watch as I try to flip past the most blatantly NSFW material! View the video above (or click here if it doesn't show up), and take a closer look in our photo gallery.

Kim Thompson

"La Semaine de la Bande Dessinée - A Week Celebrating the French Graphic Novel" got off to a great start last night at the Alliance Française of Seattle, as a standing-room-only crowd gathered to see our own Kim Thompson present his slide lecture "Vingt sur 20: French Comics from Goscinny to Satrapi," an informative and entertaining overview of 20 artists who transformed la bande desinée from a children's medium into "the ninth art." We are working on presenting this slideshow in interactive format, with audio, here on the Fantagrahpics website in the near future, so stay tuned! And don't forget that this week-long event continues tonight with screenings of Tintin et Moi at Northwest Film Forum and David B.'s "My Story, My Stories" exhibit opening and book signing at our bookstore tomorrow!

A quick note to those of you who are on The YouTube: we've just uploaded over a dozen of our recent video previews that have heretofore been hosted only on Flickr. We like the video quality on Flickr better, but we know there's lots of you on YouTube, too, so please, watch and enjoy.

By the way, we'd like to encourage those of you with your own blogs and websites to use our Flickr preview images and embed our videos, if you so desire. It's all kosher, so don't be shy.

Linus for President!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Peanuts 12 Aug 2008 9:46 AM

Peanuts and Rock the Vote have teamed up this election season to show everyone how easy it is to vote... And the big question of the day is which Peanuts character would you want for President? Log on HERE to learn about the candidates: Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Sally.... Then it's up to you to decide and VOTE... 

Right now Charlie Brown is in the lead. Not a terrible choice, but come on, is there any doubt that Linus would make the Greatest President Ever? At least vote for Sally -- you know she'd pick a smart VP.

Meanwhile, if you're near Santa Rosa, CA, this year, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center has mounted an exhibition of election-themed strips spanning  the twelve presidential elections that took place during Schulz's 50 year run on Peanuts.
