March Booklist Reviews
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Wallace WoodOCDLucy KnisleyJaime HernandezGreg SadowskiGilbert HernandezDisneyDaily OCDCarl BarksBasil Wolverton 18 Mar 2015 2:16 PM

Next month's issue of Booklist will include reviews of recent releases by Fantagraphics cartoonists + creators, excerpted below:

Displacement
A Starred review for Displacement by Lucy Knisley
"Knisley finds both the humor and the sadness in her grandparents' condition...Whereas Knisley's previous travel memoirs speak more to the young adult experience, Displacement is a timely and mature work that pairs perfectly with other elder-care titles, such as Roz Chast's Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant? (2014)." –Snow Wildsmith

Love and Rockets 7
Love and Rockets: New Stories #7 by Jaime Hernandez & Gilbert Hernandez
"Jaime's economically elegant cartooning and Gilbert's bold designs and imaginative characterizations-will leave fans satisfied and eager for next year's installment." –Gordon Flagg

creeping
Creeping Death from Neptune
 by Basil Wolverton, edit by Greg Sadowski
"Wolverton was a genre unto himself..No matter what he drew-science fiction, costumed crime fighters, or wacky humor-his distinctively iconoclastic style, marked by blocky compositions and idiosyncratic stippling, set it far apart from anything else." –Gordon Flagg

Seven cities
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold by Carl Barks
"Barks' flair for combining humor with thrills is unmatched, as are his clear, expressive cartooning and his command of visual storytelling. The full-color restoration of the artwork and the useful historical notes give Barks' consummate work the deluxe presentation it richly deserves." –Gordon Flagg

Spawn of Mars
Spawn of Mars and Other Stories by Al Feldstein & Wallace Wood
"Wood's detail-laden panels, vibrant brushwork, and chiaroscuro lighting effects gave his stories a verisimilitude that the primitive cinematic special effects of the era sorely lacked...While the stories might be best enjoyed by a precocious 12-year-old, it takes an adult reader to fully appreciate Wood's astonishing craft." –Gordon Flagg

NYC: The Kurdles at Bergen Street Comics
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Robert Goodinevents 16 Mar 2015 11:03 AM

Bergen Party
Admist the hub-bub of New York City and the Museum of Comics and Comic Arts Festival, MoCCA, you can find solace but not silence at the always fun Bergen Street Comics. Koyama Press2D Cloud and Fantagraphics TAKE OVER BERGEN STREET Party is happening on Saturday, April 11th at 7pm. Cartoonist and animator, Robert Goodin, will be appearing to sign his new all-ages book, The Kurdles in the spirit of Hergé's Tintin or Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge, spiced up with a teaspoon of strange.

The Kurdles
What else is happening at this cornucopia of comic delights? A. Degen's surrealist superhero adventure MIGHTY STAR AND THE CASTLE OF THE CANCATERVATER (Koyama Press), equal parts Dalí and Astro Boy, Degen's mostly silent narrative is both metaphysical and mighty; Blaise Larmee's 3 BOOKS (2D Cloud) is an eclectic and meticulously crafted reproduction of rare and unpublished books; Émilie Gleason's SALZ & PFEFFER (2D Cloud) a taboo-soaked world of the inane and the intellectual, the profane, profound, and parodic; Andy Burkholder's QVIET (2D Cloud) focuses on the abstractions of sex, of seeing, and the fluid relations between the two.

Celebrate MoCCA Fest weekend with an incredible night of bleeding edge comics and cartoonists! Event poster by A. Degen. We'll see you there!

Black River Tour
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Josh Simmonsevents 12 Mar 2015 11:48 AM
 Black River full final
Josh Simmons' latest, greatest and most terrifying graphic novel yet is about to hit the United States and he is taking Black River to the road. Black River stars a group of women, one man, and two dogs are making their way through a post-apocalyptic world in search of a city that supposedly still has electricity and some sort of civilization. Along the way, they go to a comedy club, take a drug called Gumdrop, and encounter gangs of men who are fools, lunatics, or murderous sadists. In other words, all manner of terrors.  You think the Hunger Games is scary? What if it was your every damn day? This full-length graphic novel is his best work yet, echoing director John Carpenter's perfect tick-tock pacing, as well as Shirley Jackson's ability to transcend genre and turn it into literature.
 
Check out Simmons 'round the United States tour (plus two Canadian stops) and mark your calendars. Some events feature some guest cartoonists, some music by Sunshine Ear's Gregory Spencer and some special venues will be screening Simmons' chilling short films.

New Comics Day 3.11.2015
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Willard MullinRoy CraneNew Comics Day 11 Mar 2015 3:16 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. 

Casey at the Bat
Willard Mullin's Casey at the Bat and Other Diamond Tales
by Willard Mullin and Ernest Thayer

52-page two-color 6.25" x 6.25" hardcover
$9.99 | 978-1-60699-814-4

"Mullin defined the modern sports cartoon by combining representative portraiture, cartoonish doodlery, and editorial commentary - part news account, part personal observation, his cartoons celebrated sport for its entertainment, cultural, and artistic value." –Bob Staake

Hurricane Isle
Hurricane Isle and Other Adventures: The Best of Captain Easy and Wash Tubbs
by Roy Crane; edited by Rick Norwood

"Crane's art is stunning, combining simple cartoony figures with richly detailed backgrounds in clever, colorful layouts. It isn't even necessary to read the dialogue or captions to follow the action; just scan Crane's dynamic lines, which make every panel look like a unique work of pop art. [Grade:] A-." - The A.V. Club 








CHICAGO: Peter Bagge at Challengers Comics + Conversation
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Untagged  9 Mar 2015 3:46 PM
Sweatshop
Let the chill of the early evening air fill your lungs as you head over to Challengers Comics + Conversation on Sunday, March 22nd to get all* your comics signed by Peter Bagge. His newest book is a collection of the DC comic, Sweatshop, which discusses seedy underbelly of the comic book industry. Originally published as a six-issue series by DC Comics in 2003 this is one of the best and most undervalued works of one of the key voices of his generation. This Sunday evening soiree starts at 6pm

Sweatshop focuses on the unhappy, out-of-touch cartoonist, Mel Bowling. As the hand behind a very bad daily comic strip called Freddy Ferret (a cross between Dilbert and Garfield), he spends most of his time listening to Rush Limbaugh and coming up with horrible catchphrases to merchandise, while his "sweatshop" cast of studio assistants grind out all the hard work.  
 Sweatshop Peter Bagge
Bagge recently received the 2014 USA Rockerfeller Fellow of Literature status from the United States of Artists so be sure to congratulate him! 

Challengers Comics + Conversation was the recipient of the 2013 Will Eisner "Spirit of Comics" Retailer Award and has been open since March 2008 when Patrick Brower and W. Dal Bush first opened up the store. With an engaging set of comic book sellers and a beautiful store, don't you just want to buy a copy of everything? LOOK at those red chairs!

Peter Bagge: Conversations
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Peter Bagge 6 Mar 2015 1:55 PM

COnversations
Hear ye, hear ye! Fans of Peter Bagge, Hate, the Bradleys and comics history will be happy to hear that a new book has just hit the bookstores: Peter Bagge: Conversations by Kent Worchester and the University Press of Mississippi. Get the quippy and quirky interviews that also include some previously unavailable material! We can add this to Bagge's growing list of publishers carrying his comics and work: Fantagraphics, D&Q, IDW, Dark Horse....

From the University Press of Mississippi description: "For fans of Peter Bagge (b. 1957) and his bracingly satirical writing and drawing, this collection offers the perfect means to track his career choices, work habits, preoccupations, and comedic sensibility from the 1980s onwards. Featuring a lengthy new interview and a great deal of previously unavailable material, this book delivers insightful, gossipy, funny, and occasionally tart conversations with a wide range of interlocutors, from personal friends and zine publishers to comics critics and mainstream journalists. Bagge's wide-ranging career has intersected with the modern history of comics, from underground comix and indie comics to comics journalism and graphic nonfiction; this new compendium of interviews will be a must-have for aficionados of his work. 

Bagge's detailed, garrulous, and often grotesquely funny (and discomfiting) work harks back to the underground generation, recalling Robert Crumb and Gilbert Shelton, while also pointing forward to the emergence of alternative comics as a distinct genre. His signature series, the rawly humorous Hate (1990-1998) and his editorship (1983-1986) of the often outrageous Weirdo magazine, founded by Crumb, established Bagge as a leading voice in alternative comics, and his rude, wildly expressive cartooning makes him a counterpoint to the still introspection of recent literary graphic novels.
Over the past few decades Bagge has left his mark on a variety of formats and genres. He is a prolific cartoonist, an accomplished musician, and a sometime essayist, editor, and animator. While his creative output encompasses autobiographical comics, graphic nonfiction, magazine illustrations, gag cartoons, minicomics, political commentary, superhero parodies, comic strips, animated videos, and one-page humor pieces, Bagge is best known for creating continuity-based graphic stories that revolve around sharply defined, over-the-top characters. While some writers on comics have lazily branded Bagge as a grunge-era visual satirist, his creative restlessness and expanding body of work make it difficult to confine him within any single genre, cultural niche, or historical moment."

Buy more of Bagge's books right here on our online store or from your local comic retailer or bookstore!

MJ French Toast
Cartoonist Wilfred Santiago recently highlighted a recipe inspired on a scene from Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade. Cook some of MJ's Peaches French Toast to please not only your taste buds but your loved ones. It looks so tasty but only if you use fresh peaches as Jordan recommends. 
Outro zine 
Ella Woods also wrote a short article on fanzines and how the Michael Jordan epiloque was based off some physical fanzines about music. She poses the question, how does one finish a biography when the subject is still living? If you want to find out, you'll need to read Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade!
