The Land that Time Forgot
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Popeye 25 Nov 2008 11:41 AM

When I was a kid, I had a recurring dream about hanging out at Popeye and Olive Oyl's house. I really liked Popeye, and had a bit of a crush on Olive. Little did I know, I could have tried to convince my parents to actually take me to Popeye's house... in Malta! I am so taking my li'l swee'pea here one day.

Lilli Carre's "The Carnival" in MOME 14
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under MomeLilli Carré 25 Nov 2008 7:56 AM

We just wrapped up the next MOME (Vol. 14), out next spring. This issue features quite a doozy: Lilli Carré's "The Carnival," a 32-page full-color graphic novella (featured on the cover above). It's an elegant follow-up to her new graphic novel, The Lagoon, and between both stories it's clear that Carré is a major talent to watch. 

In the meantime, look for MOME Vol. 13 to hit stores next month.

BEASTS Art Exhibition & 2nd Anniversary Gala
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Ted StearnPeter BaggeJim WoodringJim BlanchardFantagraphics BookstoreeventsEllen ForneyBeastsart shows 20 Nov 2008 2:43 PM

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery Celebrates 2nd Anniversary on December 13 with a Spectacular Party and BEASTS Art Exhibition!

Over the course of two years, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery has become woven into the region’s cultural fabric and drawn attention to an impressive array of local, national and international narrative cartoonists, illustrators, graphic designers, and fine artists while providing a showcase for Seattle-based publisher Fantagraphics Books. To celebrate the second anniversary of this stimulating space, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery hosts a festive gala and reception for the phenomenal BEASTS BOOKS 1 & 2 book launch and art exhibition on Saturday, December 13 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

Since its publication in December 2006, BEASTS BOOK ONE has become a pop culture sensation, quickly selling out two printings and finding an enthusiastic worldwide audience. Meticulously designed, the book combines colorful illustrations of mythical monsters with imaginative text describing the folkloric origins and characteristics of these creatures. The brainchild of Fantagraphics Books design director Jacob Covey, the first BEASTS volume included accomplished contributors including Art Chantry, Tim Biskup, Tony Millionaire, Richard Sala, Martin Ontiveros, and Jordan Crane among many others. BEASTS BOOK TWO, which will debut at the December 13 event, continues the tradition of illustrations from interdisciplinary international luminaries including David B. (France), Jaime Hernandez (US), Femke Hiemstra (Netherlands), Toby Tam (China), Kim Deitch (US), Tatsuro Kiuchi (Japan), and many more. To commemorate the publication of BEASTS BOOK TWO and the simultaneous release of the paperback edition of BEASTS BOOK ONE, Covey has selected 45 representative artists from both volumes for an eclectic exhibition of original works and fine art prints.

The 2nd Anniversary celebration and BEASTS reception will be hosted by Fantagraphics stalwarts Ellen Forney, Jim Woodring, Jacob Covey, Peter Bagge, Jim Blanchard and special guest Ted Stearn. Musical entertainment will be provided by Peter Bagge’s new pop combo Can You Imagine? featuring celebrated musician and producer Steve Fisk. The public of all ages is welcome and admission is free. Guests can peruse a new crop of bad ass books and exquisite gifts from the Northwest’s most adventurous purveyor of comics, graphic novels and low brow art.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) in Seattle’s lively Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 – 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110. The 2nd Anniversary Gala and BEASTS exhibition on Saturday, December 13 coincides with the festive Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the neighborhood. Please join us for this auspicious occasion.

PRISON PIT: The Graphic Novel by Johnny Ryan

World Peace Hulk
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 12 Nov 2008 7:50 PM

James Kochalka couldn't have done it better. Hard to believe this gentle soul would be waging war against the world a mere 28 years later. From Defenders #75 (1979) by Ed Hannigan, Herb Trimpe and Mike Esposito. That Greenpeace address is about a mere mile and a half  from our office; I don't think it's still there. Oh, and NEVER accuse the Defenders of being intolerant.

Question of the Day
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 11 Nov 2008 2:33 PM
Is it just me or is the Bat-Manga "controversy" the biggest comics non-issue since "is Kramer's Ergot 7 too expensive"?
