International comics star Jason will appear at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Seattle on Saturday, June 13 to launch his Low Moon collection with a signing and exhibition of original art. To commemorate the occasion, Fantagraphics graphics beast Jacob Covey designed a sweet Jason silkscreen print. A signed edition of 75 posters will be exclusively available at the bookstore beginning June 13 for the insanely affordable price of $20. See you all there.
Brooklyn's lovely Vivian Girls dropped by Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery before their show at Neumo's on Thursday to stock up on road reading material by Ivan Brunetti, Paul Hornschemeier, and Esther Pearl Watson. (Unlovable, they're not!) Highlights of their current tour included a spot at the Coachella Music Festival where the band reported Sir Paul's marathon midnight serenade set him back thousands for violating local noise curfews. We're guessing he can afford it.
