A couple of things to watch out for in this set of photos and videos from Saturday night's Bill Griffith appearance and exhibit at our storefront: 1) the fan who gets her Zippy tattoo signed and hightails it out the door to the tattoo parlor down the street to have it inked in permanently; 2) our brand-new Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery canvas tote bags, available only at the store for the low price of $14.95. We love us a slideshow, and it's embedded above; click here if you can't see it and/or to view it in a new window, or click here to browse through images at your own speed.

Comics Are for Idiots!: Blecky Yuckerella Vol. 3 by Johnny Ryan

Comics Are for Idiots!: Blecky Yuckerella Vol. 3
By Johnny Ryan

The stupidest, ugliest, stubbliest girl in grade number two is back and so are the zits, boogers, guts, tumors, and turds in her third collection of riotously hilarious, eye-poppingly offensive four-panel gag strips. Co-starring the usual cast of Blecky's weirdo friends and enemies, plus jelly clones, morbidly obese Jesus, the Blumpkins, slug nuts, aliens, talking belches, the beloved New Character Parade and oh so much more. Over 100 pages of ridiculous absurdity, over-the-top grossouts, and scathing satire as only Johnny Ryan can deliver.

The Comics Journal #294

The Comics Journal #294
Edited by Mike Dean & Kristy Valenti; Gary Groth, executive editor

Art speaks louder than words when the Journal interviews two cartoonists who have had success with “silence.” Norwegian Jason, who populates comics, such as Hey, Wait…, The Left Bank Gang and I Killed Adolf Hitler with deadpan anthropomorphic animals, muses on the thin line between tragedy and laughter and why B-movie creations continue to resonate with the 21st century public. Lio comic-strip cartoonist Mark Tatulli talks to the Journal about bringing kids and ghouls together on the Funny Pages in Lio, one of the most innovative and entertaining comics strips in recent decades. And a color comics gallery goes back to the early days of one of the world’s longest-running comic strips: Billy DeBeck’s Snuffy Smith precursor, Take Barney Google, F’rinstance, spanning 1919 to 1921.

Rocky Vol. 2: Strictly Business by Martin Kellerman

Rocky Vol. 2: Strictly Business
By Martin Kellerman

To start things off, Rocky manages to wheedle himself a free trip to New York as a reporter covering a gaming convention; a glutton for punishment, he looks up the girl he knocked up in Rocky Vol. 1 and gets a BIG suprise! Rocky Vol. 2: Strictly Business is Fritz The Cat meets Jane Austen!?! Basically, it's the pottymouthed animal-headed Seinfeld-esque comic strip we've all come to love. Wont you join us for more?

Your Non-Graphic Novel of the Month
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Seth 7 Nov 2008 12:14 PM

Who better to offer sage advice about post-hypercapitalist living than two lifelong experts on idling, goldbricking, scrounging, dawdling, quitting, napping, mooching, laying about, and dreaming? Get it here.
