Reinforce your coffee table and stock up on Visine: you'll need to prepare yourself for our massive, mind-blowing tome The Blighted Eye: Original Comic Art from the Glenn Bray Collection, coming in March. Starting with an intro to Glenn and the collection — and it's a colorful story — the book then goes on to display hundreds of works of art by just about every important comics creator or artist working in the cartoon idiom, ever. The bottom photo shows the breadth of work collected in this book: through alphabetical proximity, outré underground visionary Rory Hayes shares a spread with Russ Heath's classic realist war comics. This is An Important Book, folks, one that any serious comics lover cannot go without. Pre-order your copy and see more previews right here.

Lucy Knisley Brings Two Books to Fantagraphics
Written by Jacq Cohen | Filed under Lucy KnisleyComing Attractions 13 Jan 2014 3:23 PM

An Age of License cover

Fantagraphics Books is excited to announce the acquisition of two new comics travel memoirs by acclaimed cartoonist Lucy Knisley. Fall 2014 brings An Age of License, which recounts Knisley's charming and romantic adventures across Europe on a quest to discover what is truly important in life, find love along the way. Displacement is a travelogue about taking her elderly grandparents on a cruise, and pondering the meaning of life, while trying to hold her family together. The deal was brokered by Holly Bemiss at The Susan Rabiner Literary Agency.

New York Times Best Selling cartoonist Knisley garnered fame from her two previous graphic novels Relish and French Milk. She is also well known for her ongoing web comic, Stop Paying Attention, the latest of which is "A Light That Never Goes Out." Knisley's greatest strength lays in her keen ability to tell her story to both young adult and mature readers.

"I'm really excited to finally be working with Fantagraphics, which I've admired for years," Knisley explains. "These books are an exploration of youth and freedom, versus responsibility and family, and I'm so glad Fantagraphics is the company to help me tell these stories."

Much like the HBO series Girls, Knisley speaks to a generation of young women who are fiercely independent and yearn for adventure. The Eat, Pray, Love for the "social media" generation, An Age of License is a series of illustrated snapshots of a life full of cute cats, fancy food, and exotic travel.

Young Romance pages

Spring is the time for new love, and like the first crocus poking through the snow, our advance copies of Young Romance 2: The Early Simon & Kirby Romance Comics, the sequel to the Eisner Award-nominated first volume, have arrived to portend the book's March release. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby (whom everyone knows from their superpower-driven work) not only invented the romance comics genre, they mastered it right out of the gate, as shown in these compelling, dramatic, dynamically-illustrated tales from 1947-1949. And they've never looked better: all the sighs, swoons, kisses, heartbreak, and tears are lovingly restored in reconstructed color. Read an excerpt and pre-order your copy right here.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 7 Jan 2014 4:22 PM

Charlie Brown's tribulations on the pitcher's mound, in the batter's box, and in the dugout are the stuff of myth (Sisyphus, to be precise). For all fans of America's Pastime, we've collected three of Charles M. Schulz's classic Peanuts baseball storylines into one spiffy little gift book, Batter Up, Charlie Brown!

In our downloadable excerpt, Chuck's role as team manager leads to frustration as his players vex him with their idiosyncratic habits. The book should be out about midway through Spring Training — pre-order now for delivery by opening day!

2013 was declared by many (especially us) as the Year of Gilbert Hernandez, and this spring the spotlight swings back onto his brother Jaime as we present The Love Bunglers, the collected edition of Jaime's universally-hosanna'd work from issues 3 and 4 of Love and Rockets: New Stories. Maggie's past, present, and future collide in devastating fashion and the emotional arc of 3 decades of storytelling comes to a climax and denouement that will leave you stunned and blubbering. (There's also apparently a lot of plaid.) And jeez, check out that striking cover design by Jacob Covey. Stay tuned for more about this absolute can't-miss book.

Love and laundry, Mars and mothers, the mundane and the absurd — they all come together in this hefty collection of M.K. Brown's work spanning more than four decades, Stranger Than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970-2013. These comic strips and gag cartoons originally appeared in the National Lampoon, The New Yorker, Playboy, The Atlantic, Arcade, Twisted Sisters, and a plethora of other magazines and underground comics, and most have never before been collected! If you've seen some of this material before, you know it's genius; if you haven't, and you're a fan of Lisa Hanawalt, Roz Chast, Michael Kupperman, Glen Baxter, Bill Griffith, early Lynda Barry, and the like, you'll soon have a new favorite discovery! We got our advance copies (obviously) and the book is due on shelves in about 8 weeks, give or take — see a 27-page excerpt and pre-order your copy right here.
