As previously reported, Fantagraphics is gearing up for the 2011 MoCCA Fest in New York City, April 9-10!

And not only will we be joined by Peter Bagge, Michael Kupperman, Ted Stearn, Leslie Stein, Stephen DeStefano, and Gahan Wilson, but we just added Kim Deitch, Drew Friedman, Mark Newgarden, Nate Neal, Derek Van Gieson, and Sara Edward-Corbett to our signing roster, too!

More details (along with a signing schedule) to follow soon!  See you there!

Kim Thompson Shows You Contempt
Written by janice headley | Filed under Kim Thompsonevents 8 Mar 2011 10:57 AM

No, really.  He does.

Join Kim on Wednesday, March 23rd at 7:00 pm, as he presents a screening of the 1963 Jean-Luc Godard masterpiece, Contempt, at Seattle's Central Cinema.

As he explains, the screening is "Part of their regular 'let a prominent Seattleite choose their favorite movie and talk it up' feature. If you've never seen Godard's Contempt, it is well worth seeing in a theatrical setting (in this case projecting from a Blu-Ray disc, which is the next best thing to a actual film), so grab your chance. If you've seen it, you probably know that it's always worth re-visiting, especially on a larger screen."

Central Cinema is located in Seattle's Central District neighborhood at 21st Avenue and E. Union Street. Tickets are available at the door, or online here

Not Sick of LOVESICK?
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 7 Mar 2011 9:26 AM

Us neither! But you've only got a couple more days to check out the "Lovesick" exhibit from Seattle's own Bureau of Drawers cartoonist collective.  If you haven't had a chance to see this collection of original art, handmade books and prints, get yrself down to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery tout de suite!

(Mais oui! 'Cause Larry's gonna start installing our Tardi exhibit next!)

 

And THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to our opening night on Valentine's Day weekend!  It was, indeed, lovely to see everyone out, supporting our local comic scene, and show-goers were serenaded by Bureau of Drawers members Dennis Driscoll and Sean Robinson of Landlord's Daughter.  We've got video from each performance below:

More pics await you on our Flickr set!

Drew Friedman

The great Drew Friedman was recently a guest on the WFMU radio show Fool's Paradise, discussing everything from, "Drew's early career, Tor Johnson sightings, the healing power of Joe E Ross and Drew's latest masterwork, Sideshow Freaks (Blast Books). Zagnut bars will also be referenced."

If you forgot to tune in, you can listen to the archive here!  And toss those guys a few bucks -- it's the WFMU 2011 Marathon through March 13th!

Giant Robot gets a "1UP" with Game Over IV, their latest group show paying homage to video game culture, with several Fantagraphics artists at the joysticks, including Andrice Arp, Jeffrey Brown, Paul Hornschemeier, and Steven Weissman. That's a sneak peek at Paul's work up there, and below, we've got a piece from Steven.

The show opens Friday, March 4th at GRSF [618 Shrader Street, San Francisco] with a reception from 6:30 - 10:00 pm.  Is the princess in another castle?  You can catch the show until March 30, 2011.

I may be a vegetarian, but how can anyone resist MEAT, an art show opening Thursday, March 3rd at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles?
 
Our very own Michael Kupperman will have some savory art delights, along with a bunch of other carnivorous artists. (Charlyne Yi??? Yay!)
 
The opening reception runs from 7-10 pm, and Alie and Georgia (of Drinks with Alie and Georgia) will be on hand to make some special meat-themed cocktails for the show. Again, I may be a vegetarian, but mmmmm!

Oh, and you know what else we'll have? The acclaimed Artichoke Tales and The Squirrel Mother, and on Sunday, March 6th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, the Ignatz Award-winning artist Megan Kelso will be signing at our booth, space #808!

Can you imagine?... getting your books signed by the great Peter Bagge?!  You can make it a reality this weekend, Friday, March 4th - Sunday, March 6th, at the 9th Annual Emerald City Comicon! (Tickets still available at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Georgetown!)

Swing by the Fantagraphics booth at space #808 on Saturday, March 5th from 10:00 am to Noon. Bagge will be signing copies of the latest Hate Annual #8, and additional works, such as Everybody Is Stupid Except for Me and Other Astute Observations.

And you can catch Pete later that night playing with his pop combo, Can You Imagine?  Fantagraphics and fellow indie-comic publishers Top Shelf Productions are proud to present an Emerald City Comic-Con after-party on Saturday, March 5th at the Jewel Box Theater at the Rendezvous. (Also on the bill is The Rheas, fronted by Eric Reynolds, our Associate Publisher, and Matthew Southworth, frontman for The Capillaries, and co-creator of the comic Stumptown. Yours truly will be spinning tracks between the bands, so don't miss it!)
