Columbus, OH: An Evening with Tony Millionaire
Written by Anna Pederson | Filed under Tony Millionaireevents 13 Aug 2014 3:29 PM

Thursday, September 4th

The beautiful people at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum are hosting a lovely evening with the mad Maakies creator, Tony Millionaire. Beginning at 7 pm in the Jean and Charles Schulz Lecture Hall on the Ohio State University campus. Tony will be in conversation with the library's engagement coordinator, Caitlin McGurk, discussing the only two things worth discussing, life, and cartooning.

Millionaire's breadth of work has spanned many years, through many mediums. From original syndicated title Maakies, to the well beloved Sock Monkey series, and the Cartoon Network Adult Swim show, "The Drinky Crow Show". The recently released Sock Monkey Treasury collects the wonderfully victorian-stylized adventures of Uncle Gabby and Mr. Crow in their first complete book.

Don't miss this chance to hear a unique journey, from a unique man, whose influence can be felt in almost all aspects of our culture. This event is also wonderfully FREE and OPEN to the public!

Influential cartoonist, painter, and professor, Gary Panter, will be celebrating his newst work during an art exhibition at Fredericks & Frasier Gallery with an opening reception on September 4th, from 6-8 PM!

Surreal pop art, with a day-glo vibe. Or expressionistic sci-fi and punk cartoons. Maybe imaginative, and super saturated set designs. How about shoe illustrator? All of these things describe the award winning artist throughout his extensive and impressive career. Be a part of the brilliant madness with his third exhibition installment at the Chelsea gallery, that will open early on August 26th, and run through September 27th. Featuring original paintings and bead lists, which aesthetically sounds like the best thing ever.

Jaime HernandezGilbert Hernandez, Gerard Way, Becky Cloonan, Jim Mahfood, Eric Esquivel, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Felipe Smith, Hannah Partlow, Tom Pinchuk, and the best up-and-coming comic talent, Natalie Hernandez. Plus many others yet to be added. 

Both Hernandez bros have some new books out that have been blowing up the critics lists and quickly becoming fan favorites. Pack up your copies of The Love Bunglers, and Luba and Her Family, and head on down to Meltdown Comics. If you're going to SDCC, this will give you a little preview of what's to come, and if you're not going, this will ensure you get to hang out with some of the best. Everyone's welcome!

Come help support local comic books stores, artists and the industry by hanging out with some of the best in the biz. We're patiently waiting for the second volume of Ed Piskor's New York Times BestsellerHip Hop Family Tree. But in the mean time, he's taking the time to sign books with fellow comic artists Jim Rugg, who contributed to Mome Vol. 22, Tom Scioli, and Adhouse publisher, Chris Pitzer.

Park City, UT: Kevin Avery Signing

Saturday, July 12

Paul Nelson was a pioneer of music criticism and discovering acts of immeasurable talent during the '60s and '70s; shinning a dirty light on acts like Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young.  When he mysteriously stepped out of his own journalistic spotlight, he left behind hundreds of unanswered questions and as many writings. Kevin Avery has spent years trying to answer those questions and does so through hundereds of interviews with those who knew Nelson best: friends, family, and artists, culminating in the anthology/biography, Everything is an Afterthought: The Life and Writing of Paul Nelson.  

On Saturday, July 12th from 6 to 7:30 pm you can catch up with Kevin Avery at the lovely, and esteemed, Dolly's Bookstore of Park City, Utah, complete with the cutest bookstore kitties you ever did see. (Bookstore cats are only second to bodega cats.) 

Avery will also be signing copies of his book Conversations with Clint: Paul Nelson's Interviews with Clint Eastwood, 1979-1983

Your Guide to Pride (Comics)
Written by Anna Pederson | Filed under Wuvable OafWandering SonLove and RocketsDavid Wojnarowicz 24 Jun 2014 3:24 PM

nsl 

Seattle loves parades. But what we love more than parades is PRIDE! In downtown Seattle this Sunday, June 29th, you can found yourself doused with glitter, families, and suggestive floats. (The gay goth one is my favorite). We at Fantagraphics have always been committed to publishing stories of the daily lives, the complexities, the struggles, and the joys that have been represented through our diverse artists, drawing light on an ever-changing LGBTQ community.

Looking to dip your toes, or dive head first into our collection that's as diverse at the people who created them? We've got a spectacular list to fit any book lover!

No Straight Lines 

  • The most comprehensive collection of queer comics covers FORTY YEARS of struggle, hope, pain, sex, identity, and love. Edited by Justin Hall, No Straight Lines embraces history, culture and the future in this impressive anthology. 
 
 b&w   mags
  • One of the most interesting love stories I have ever come across. An autobiographical memoir about a professor who befriends, and then falls in love, with a man living on the streets. Full of tenderness, and enduring partnership admist the most unlikely of circumstances.  
 
wandering   drunken
 
  • Being a tween is hard enough, but when you add gender identity, and transsexualism to the normal pains of puberty, you get a story that is loving and heartbreaking. Written with poetic sensitivity in spades, you might want to read this series with a tissue, or ten.
 
 7   thom
 
  • Eisner nominee, GLBT Roundtable selection, and New York Times Bestseller. Artist David Wojnarowicz did not go silently into the night when he penned his story of living, and eventually dying of AIDS in NYC. This book is a testament to Wojnarowicz fierce advocacy for marginalized voices to be heard by friends, family, and the government. 
 
small   julio 
 
  • Fun, sexy, girly erotica! 
 
wuvable 
 
And our newest addition: Wuvable Oaf! Which is now available for pre-order
