Just watch this. It's called "Nightmare," by The Francies. Written and Directed by Al Columbia. What else do you really need to know? Al has plenty of well-deserved fans for his visual art, but he's a helluva musician and filmmaker, too.

Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Al Columbia 13 Jun 2014 5:37 PM

Biologic Show #0 by Al Columbia - Cover

Holy cats! It's Friday the 13th, a full moon, and — we've just discovered 2 cartons of Al Columbia's Biologic Show #0 at our warehouse!

Coincidence? I think not.

If you're looking for some good old-fashioned twisted horror and beautiful, depraved artwork, look no further! Disclaimer: Fantagraphics is not responsible for any side effects from reading this comic, to include melting eyeballs, temporary insanity, or the sudden desire to turn on all the lights in your house.

Stories in Biologic Show #0 include "Seymour Sunshine," "Extinction," "Grinding Larry," and a tale of Columbia's waif hero and heroine, Pim and Francie.

Hi-Fructose Special on Al Columbia
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Things to seeartistsartAl Columbia 30 Apr 2014 1:09 AM
Hi-Fructose
"Horror is a peculiar and particular flavor of dis-ease. The body does not respond to it as it does to fear, with the urge toward fight of flight; instead, horror washes over you and lingers, reminding you that all is not as it should be in the world," writes Silke Tudor.  
Columbia 
In Issue 31 of Hi-FructoseAl Columbia is featured in a special matte paper insert featuring paintings, illustrations and some comics found in Pim and Francie, published by Fantagraphics in 2009. Columbia's dark hallways and candy-coated big-eyed children create the perfect landscape to lose yourself and your own mind in.
Al Columbia 
Founder and Editor-in-Chief 'Attaboy' says. "It's the layers of drawings and tracings atop half finshed thoughts, tear outs and revisions filled with obsessive detail that turns us into the shamless voyeaurs to what appears to be true madeness. We invite you to join us there."

Al Columbia: Music Video
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under videomiscellanyartAl Columbia 15 Jul 2013 12:56 PM

black bikini from al columbia on Vimeo.

When Al Columbia is not drawing chilling comics or making home-made flame throwers (they can shoot as far as fifteen feet!), he's with his band cooking up something cool. The music video "Black Bikini" was filmed on location at 'Plum Island.' Columbia has about eight songs ready for his new album called Journey to Death Island, which will be out from Psychopop Records in the near distant future. Give it a listen, maybe even a shimmy and shake.

Just Add Color (and Gore)
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under artAl Columbia 18 Jun 2013 10:40 AM
Pim and Francie painting
 
The only thing that could make Al Columbia's Pim and Francie even more terrifying is to add color. Columbia recently sent Hi Fructose some exclusive new paintings they are featuring on their website that continue the horrorscape he created in 2009's Pim and Francie. Turn the lights down low, grab that gristle pie you made for lunch and enjoy these haunting illustations after the jump.

It's a Horror Hangover This Weekend in Vancouver!
Written by janice headley | Filed under staffMalachi WardJim RuggeventsAl Columbia 19 Nov 2012 2:00 PM

Horror Hangover

Who says Halloween is the scariest holiday? When you can't bear the sight of dirty dishes and leftovers, when the parents have worn your last nerve, or when you can't seem to button your jeans anymore, it's time to head to the Horror Hangover in Vancouver, BC!

(Yeah, I know Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving in October -- it's been a helluva hangover.)

This group show was curated by Robin McConnell of Inkstuds, who explains, "Horror Hangover is a chance for cartoonists to work on some conceptual ideas for visions of times mostly terrible, some exhausting, with a couple of positive examples." Sounds perfect for the holidays to me!

Not only does the show feature Fantagraphics' staffers Jason T. Miles and Jen Vaughn, but you can also find work from Mome veterans Malachi Ward and Jim Rugg! Plus, check out that poster illustration from Al Columbia!

The opening reception is this Friday, November 23rd, from 7:00 to 11:00 PM, and your last chance to see it is on Saturday, November 24th from Noon to 6:00 PM. Hot Art Wet City's Pop-Up Gallery is located at 752 E. Broadway.
