Tito On Ice at the Ottawa International Animation Festival!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Max Anderssonevents 21 Aug 2013 12:13 PM

Earlier this year, world-famous cartoonist and filmmaker Max Andersson screened his first feature-length film Tito on Ice at the Seattle International Film Festival.  And now, Tito on Ice is taking on Canada with screenings at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in September!

Catch this inventive documentary on Thursday, September 19th and Sunday, September 22nd at the Empire Theatres in the World Exchange Plaza [ 111 Albert Street ].

Bosnian Flat Dog

To promote their Fantagraphics book Bosnian Flat Dog, Andersson and fellow Swedish artist Lars Sjunnesson toured the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummified Marshal Tito in a refrigerator.

Now comes the documentary, Tito on Ice, which takes Super 8 footage of their tour and animates it with cardboard cutouts and garbage and other recycled materials. The result is a surreal trip through the Balkans that is part promotion, part performance art, and part history of Marshal Tito and the dissolution of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. It’s also about the underground arts and music venues that popped up when the country split apart.

Through it all there is a comics creator’s eye at work: live-action interviews suddenly switch to animation, and more than 50 sets were built for the film, all shot and animated on Super 8 film. Tito on Ice is a joyous trip through the war torn subconscious of an underground artist.

It's so fitting to have our book launch for Bread & Wine at The Strand since the book's sub-title is "An Erotic Tale of New York"!

So, get ready for a sensual evening on Thursday, August 15th at 7:00 PM as Samuel R. Delany and Mia Wolff take the stage to discuss this graphic autobiography -- a true story from celebrated science-fiction writer, professor, and theorist Delany, on his relationship with a homeless man who was selling books on the street in Manhattan.

This tender and intimate memoir first came out in 1999, and has since gone out-of-print.  We're thrilled to reissue this beautiful tale, with an introduction by Watchmen writer Alan Moore, commentary by the book’s protagonists, Delany and Dennis, and a new interview with Delany and Wolff.

You can either buy the book from The Strand or buy a $15 Strand Gift Card in order to attend this event. Both options admits one person. The event will take place in The Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.

Joe takes the stage again on Wednesday, August 14th at 7:00 PM alongside fellow guest-of-honor Chris Ware.  In a talk moderated by Teddy Jamieson, they'll discuss the brilliance in bringing together word and image on the page.

Brian Ralph at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 5 Aug 2013 2:13 PM

On Saturday, September 7th, the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery welcomes Drawn & Quarterly cartoonist Brian Ralph to celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated Reggie-12, a hilarious pop-culture send-up of the infallible boy hero first presented in the seminal Asian culture magazine Giant Robot.  Join us from 6:00 to 8:00 PM as The Cave-In and Daybreak author presents a hilarious slide show with a signing to follow.

Reggie-12 is a young robot with endless enthusiasm. He lives with a bumbling sad-sack friend, a wise-cracking cat, and a well-meaning but forgetful inventor. Laughs explode from the page in this work, which reinterprets classic Japanese adventure manga through Brian Ralph's trademark style. Come along for a wild ride with Reggie-12, Casper, and Professor Tinkerton as they eat pizza, play video games, and get dissed by bad guys.

The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.
