First Look: Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924 cover by Chris Ware
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Krazy KatGeorge HerrimanComing AttractionsChris Ware 14 Jul 2011 5:39 PM

(Click for larger version)

Chris Ware just turned in his 13th and final cover for our 13th and final (3rd in the chronology of the strip) collection of George Herriman's Krazy Kat Sundays, Krazy & Ignatz 1922-1924: At Last My Drim of Love Has Come True, coming in November. A lovely and appropriate image as we put the series to bed.

Yes, there will be a big hardcover collection of 1916-1924 released at the same time! Chris is finishing up the covers for that. And yes, we will be collecting the dailies next!

Forbes previews Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsFlannery OConnorComing Attractions 13 Jul 2011 2:36 PM

from Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons

At Forbes magazine's Booked blog, Vanna Le shares a slideshow of images from Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons, our collection of the great writer's early graphic work coming in December, saying "The entire collection has just the right amount of charm you would expect from a young and witty O’Connor. But it’s more than just a book for laughs — it offers some insight into O’Connor’s personal life as well as her mockery towards the pretensions of her social environment."

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Vol. 2: The Mad Scientist and A Dusting of Mummies by Jacques Tardi
(final cover may vary)

Ten words I got to use in my translation of the upcoming second Adèle Blanc-Sec book (trying valiantly for an SPX premiere!): bollix, bolster (as a noun), deucedly, dingus, harridan, insensate, pied-à-terre, pithecanthropus, plinth, and thoroughfare.

Coming in December: Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons

(not final cover)

News has broken over the last few days via The Guardian and now The A.V. Club about our impending publication of Flannery O'Connor: The Cartoons, collecting the author's seldom-seen visual work from her student days. The Guardian's Peter Wild writes:

"Cut from linoleum with oil-based ink applied to the ridges, the drawings are rudimentary but charming, a stripped down version of what Marjane Satrapi did in Persepolis. What's clear, though, is the perspective of the outsider, which O'Connor refined in her debut novel Wise Blood and stories such as 'A Good Man is Hard to Find.' ... Even though the cartoons are largely comic, and lack the richness of detail that a short story affords, it would be wrong to dismiss them as juvenilia…. The darkness she would make her own is already showing its teeth…. The cartoons, then, remain a glimpse of what might have been. And for fans, this is that all-too-rare commodity: a 'new' Flannery O'Connor book to slip on the shelf besides the scant few books she left us with."

The A.V. Club's Nathan Rabin says:

"O’Connor’s funny drawings are distinguished both by the author’s morbid sense of humor and surprisingly sharp and memorable visual sense. Nearly a half-century after her death, O’Connor continues to surprise."

Follow-up to Newave seeking submissions
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under NewaveComing Attractions 6 Jul 2011 10:41 PM

http://www.fantagraphics.com/images/flog/covers/2010/bookcover_newave.jpg

For those wondering whether there would be a follow-up to our well-received 2010 anthology Newave! The Underground Mini-Comix of the 1980s, good news! Editor Michael Dowers is now seeking submissions for two more volumes with a wider chronological reach. Here's the announcement, as posted at the mini-comics community site Poopsheet Foundation:

This series will cover mini comics from the dawn of time (early 70's) to the present. Since Newave has already been covered, the main focus will be on the 1990's to the present although earlier minis will be covered too. The books will be the same size (only more like 700 pages each) but will only reproduce mini comics that are 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 or smaller just like the Newave book. The two volumes are to be simply titled "Treasury of Mini Comics" Volumes one & two.

I am looking for contributors. I am looking for the best of the best. Any creator can send me their mini comics, disks, or photocopies to be considered for publication for this project. Or email me and send low-res jpegs to: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
.

Please send titles to: Michael Dowers, 361 E. Birnie Slough Rd., Cathlamet, WA 98612.

If they want their material returned it is important to enclose return postage. Any mini comics that are kept will be placed in the Fantagraphics collection after the books are published. Also anybody sending actual mini comics will receive comics in trade from Brownfield press.






What's in the July Diamond Previews

Shipping September 2011 from Fantagraphics Books

The new Diamond Previews catalog is out today and in it you'll find our usual 2-page spread with our releases scheduled to arrive in your local comic shop in September 2011 (give or take — some release dates have changed since the issue went to press). We're pleased to offer additional and updated information about these upcoming releases here on our website, to help shops and customers alike make more informed ordering decisions.

You'll find hotly-anticipated titles like the next volume of Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse by Floyd Gottfredson (a Diamond "Staff Pick"!), Pogo Vol. 1 (yes, Pogo!); The Art of Joe Kubert ("Certified Cool"!); the new Prison Pit; the Golden Age cover collection Action! Mystery! Thrills!; and our next prose book, Alexander Theroux's Estonia. See them all here!

Dal Tokyo - Gary Panter
(Click to enlarge)

Gary Panter's collected Dal Tokyo is on our spring list and production on the book is proceeding apace. Here, courtesy of Raymond Sohn, who is working on the book with Gary P., is a sneak peek at the new, much much improved (from the "horrible protocover" — Gary's words — that we used for our catalogs last time) cover.

If we publish the first Pogo book, the Joost Swarte collection, and this one all within about six months of each other, then, dear readers, what will you have left to complain about in terms of superlate books from Fantagraphics by next summer?

Don't answer that; we know there's a bunch. (B. Krigstein Vol. 2, for one.) Allow us our moment of relative triumph here.


New cover art for Kevin Huizenga's Ganges #4

Ganges #4 - Kevin Huizenga

Kevin Huizenga has revealed the cover art for Ganges #4 over on his blog — there will be a few tweaks before it goes to press, but this is pretty close to the final version. The issue makes its debut at Comic-Con next month and it's in the Previews catalog this month (with the old cover art) for shipping to comic shops in August! (Hats off to Sean T. Collins at Robot 6 for scooping us with the reveal.)

Tammy's back!

Tammy Pierce by Esther Pearl Watson

Joyous news for those of us who feared we had seen the last of Tammy Pierce: Esther Pearl Watson reports on Facebook that she's completed the first 120 pages of Unlovable Vol. 3! Will it cover summer vacation at Meemaw's on Lake Texoma or jump to first semester Junior year? I can't tell from these tantalizing glimpses of the work in progress. Esther's always busy with multiple projects so a completion date is unknown, but in the meantime if you haven't experienced Tammy's sophomore year yet, get to it!
