Ulli Lust wins the Ignatz for Best Graphic Novel
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Ulli Lustawards 16 Sep 2013 3:47 PM
Ulli!
On Saturday night, Ulli Lust won the Ignatz Award for Best Graphic Novel for her large work Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life. Translated by Kim Thompson, the story is set back in 1984, where a rebellious, 17-year-old, punked-out Ulli Lust sets out for a wild hitchhiking trip across Italy. 
 Ignatz
Charming and well, just plain bad-ass Lust sold out of her graphic novel earlier in the day. Thank you for your support and coming to say hi to our favorite Austrian cartoonist! Get your own copy of her book today!
Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life 
The End of the Fucking World on comiXology
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under digital comicscomiXologyChuck Forsman 12 Sep 2013 3:10 PM

Teotfw on comiXology
Fantagraphics and comiXology give you one of hottest books of 2013, the soon to be sold out The End of the Fucking World  by Charles Forsman. The story follows James and Alyssa, two teenagers living a seemingly typical teen experience as they face the fear of coming adulthood. Forsman tells their story through each character's perspective, jumping between points of view with each chapter. But quickly, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn as James's character exhibits a rapidly forming sociopathy that threatens both of their futures. He harbors violent fantasies and begins to act on them, while Alyssa remains as willfully ignorant for as long as she can, blinded by young love.

Forsman's story highlights the disdain, fear and existential search that many teenagers fear, but through a road trip drama that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye. Forsman's inviting, Charles Schulz-influenced style lends a deadpan quality that underscores the narrative's tension. The End of the Fucking World is certain to be one of the most talked-about graphic novels of 2013.

Only $14.99 for the full series, 158 pages of pure genius! Issue 16 of the original series is also up for a 2013 Ignatz Award Nominee: Outstanding Minicomic this weekend!

The Stranger remembers Kim Thompson
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under The StrangerKim ThompsonJim BlanchardEric ReynoldsEllen Forney 11 Sep 2013 11:50 AM

Kim Thompson by Jim Blanchard
The Stranger, one of our local alt-weeklies that shares many ties with Fantagraphics throughout the ages ran a tribute to Kim Thompson written by former employee Robert Boyd. Giving context to the comics world as the more commercial spoke the art world wheel, Boyd touches on Kim's job as a creative enabler and rabid music fan.

"Kim encouraged and cajoled many cartoonists to produce art they never otherwise would have dreamed possible. I imagine that if Fantagraphics had not been there in 1982, Jaime Hernandez might have gone on to a successful, respectable career as a penciller for Marvel and DC."

Read the full write-up over at The Stranger. Make sure you click on all the images, there is a great new comic by Eric Reynolds and Ellen Forney there in addition to Steven Weissman, Pat Moriarity, Eroyn Franklin with our own Janice Headley.

New Comics Day 9.11.13
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Shimura TakakoJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezBlake BellBill Everett 10 Sep 2013 4:09 PM

This week's comic shop shipment is slated to include the following new titles. Read on to see what comics-blog commentators and web-savvy comic shops are saying about them (more to be added as they appear), check out our previews at the links, and contact your local shop to confirm availability. 

Love and Rockets: The Covers
Love and Rockets: The Covers
by Gilbert, Jaime, and Mario Hernandez

144-page full-color 10.25" x 13.25" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-598-3

"As you might expect, Love And Rockets: The Covers is very attractive, very well-put together, and the fact that the production values on display flatter the work inside gives you an idea of just how far ahead of the curve the Hernandez Brothers could work at times." -Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter  

"Love and Rockets #1 is marvelous. I hope one day to attain the level of the cover drawing myself... it is a perfect drawing." - Moebius, 1982

Wandering Son Vol 5

Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko / 放浪息子) Vol. 5
by Shimura Takako

228-page black & white (with some color) 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-647-8

"...what continues to make Wandering Son a fantastic read is the frankness it presents developmental sexual identity...Few comics will challenge you like Wandering Son. It covers a topic not widely written about or discussed, and does so in a tactful, warm, embracing manner." -Nick Rowe, Read Comic Books

"While most manga about cross-dressing involve lots of shrieking and embarrassment, Wandering Son takes a quieter, more introspective approach.... It's a very sweet manga with realistic characters - no dead parents or crazy teachers, just ordinary, loving families and supportive friends. This manga is a beautifully produced, hardcover book, and... it's worth every penny." - Brigid Alverson, MTV Geek 

Heroic Tales

Heroic Tales: The Bill Everett Archives Vol. 2
by Bill Everett; edited by Blake Bell

248-page full-color 7.25" x 10" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-600-3"

"For fans of comics from the dawn of the comic book era, this book is an indispensable gift from Blake Bell and Fantagraphics." - Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

"What's exciting for me about this book is watching Everett develop as an artist and storyteller and figure out the medium in relatively rapid fashion.... What you see here are the glimmers of an artist struggling to comprehend the potential of this relatively new medium [and] how he can push it to match his own interests." - Chris Mautner, Robot 6
