For those of you watching FXX's Man Seeking Woman, you were probably pleasantly surprised when a nightstand featured some of our newest comics: Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter BaggeMegahex by Simon HanselmannCosplayers by Dash Shaw. Until they were replaced by a copy of Infinite Jest in an attempt to "seem cooler". Don't they know?! DON'T THEY KNOW COMICS ARE THE COOLEST?! Thanks to Noah Kuttler and Robin McConnell for the heads-up.

Linework 2015
You heard right! The Daniel Clowes will be appearing at Linework NW on April 19th, 2015 in Portland, OR as one of their special guests and signing his fantastic new collection, The Complete Eightball, at the Fantagraphics' table. 
Complete Eightball  
From the mouths of Linework NW: "Daniel Clowes is one of the great voices of contemporary American literature and a legendary artist and draftsman. His newest publication is The Complete Eightball 1-18 (Fantagraphics Books), a mammoth two-volume, 568-page collection of the author's groundbreaking personal comics anthology, a work that consistently raised the bar of comics art and literature over its impressive 17-year run. It was in these pages that many of Clowes' graphic novels were first serialized, including Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, David Boring, and Ghost World, which was adapted to film by Terry Zwigoff in 2001 with an Academy Award nominated screenplay by Clowes. Linework NW is extraordinarily honored to be hosting the official world premiere of The Complete Eightball 1-18 at our festival."

LA: Les McCann and Pat Thomas at Book Soup
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Pat ThomasLes McCannevents 19 Jan 2015 1:31 PM

Book Soup
Portraits shot at the right moment are like the fermata on a pitch perfect note. Master photographer and jazz pianist Les McCann was able to catch such moments from the greatest of jazz singers and musicians. YOU now have a chance to meet him! Author and historian Pat Thomas (Listen Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975) curated the new McCann retrospective: Invitation to Openness: The Jazz & Soul Photography of Les McCann 1960-1980 and will be with McCann at the book release party at Book Soup on Saturday, March 28th. 5pm is when DJ Adam Dorn starts spinning the soulful tunes to images by McCann. Pat Thomas will host a roundtable with McCann and A. Scott Galloway, music journalist and introduction writer.  

The new book featuring his photographs comes out at the same time as rerelease of Les McCann's Invitation to Openness album from Omnivore Records. The Invitation To Openness album (originally from Atlantic Records) has "remained a landmark statement in free-form improvisation mixed with soulful grooves, featuring a 26-minute continuous track with expressive instrumentation from the likes of Yusef Lateef, Ralph McDonald, Cornell Dupree, Bernard Purdie, and Alphonse Mouzon." These beautiful photographs still resonate to this day, an un-diminished harmony of beautiful black and white.
Cover

Invitation to Openness is coming soon from Fantagraphics, a refrain you'll read and hear often until, it's March release striking a chord within the hearts of photography fans and lovers of jazz. Be one of the first to enjoy a signed edition by picking up your copy from Book Soup on March 27th.

SF: Guy Colwell at Pegasus Bookstore
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Guy ColwelleventsBob Levin 16 Jan 2015 2:52 PM

Inner CIty Romance
This collection has been a long-time coming! On Friday, February 27th cartoonist, painter and activist Guy Colwell will be at Pegasus Bookstore in San Francisco for the release of Inner City Romance. This blood-pumpin', needle-stickin' collection features comics on social politics like racial activism, harassment, prison, black culture, ghetto life, the and the sex trade. It portrays the unpleasant realities of life in the inner city, where opportunities were limited and being on the lowest end of the economic ladder meant that one's vision of the American dream was more about survival than lifestyle choices. 

Colwell will be in conversation with author Bob Levin about his journey from cartoonist/painter to radical activist who utilized his craft to pass along a message. The talk starts at 7pm with a book signing to follow.
