In our downloadable preview, Buddy's about to get lured into another one of his pal & business partner Jay's cockamamie money-making schemes, and Lisa prays for a little divine intervention. Then, Lisa & Babs are off for a "ladies only" weekend, leaving Buddy in charge of the kids... what could possibly go wrong? If you guessed "plenty," give yourself a pat on the back, and then head here to pre-order.

Buz Sawyer Vol. 3: Typhoons and Honeymoons by Roy Crane - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Roy CranepreviewsComing Attractions 21 Jan 2014 11:24 AM

Buz is back for another volume of romance and adventure! Buz Sawyer Vol. 3: Typhoons and Honeymoons collects two more years of Roy Crane's masterful strip, from 1947-1948.

In our downloadable excerpt, Buz reluctantly skips out on his vacation and heads to the West Indies to help his old Navy buddy Thirsty out of a jam — which turns out to be an acute case of cold feet over impending marriage. Thirsty sends Buz to let his bride-to-be down easy, but it turns out his real plans are more devious, and things get complicated. On top of all that, a hurricane blows through and a slick character washes up with designs on Thirsty's now-disenchanted belle. Plus, a few full-color Sunday strips starring Buz's pal Rosco Sweeney! Will Thirsty get the girl? And what about Buz's girl Christy back home? Pre-order the book now and find out when you get your copy in March!

The Love Bunglers by Jaime Hernandez - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsLove and RocketsJaime HernandezComing Attractions 17 Jan 2014 4:49 PM

The decades-spanning, on-again-off-again relationship between Maggie Chascarillo and Ray Dominguez reaches its emotional apotheosis in The Love Bunglers. After receiving rapturous, near-universal acclaim during their serialized run 2010-2011, Jaime Hernandez's stories from Love and Rockets: New Stories #3-4 are collected in this single hardcover volume, bigger and better than ever.

In our downloadable excerpt, Maggie is the subject of scrutiny from three men across the street, one of whom has a special interest in her. Later, the hint of a triangle forms as Maggie misses and makes connections with Reno and Ray as she describes her dreams and takes in an art show. How are they all going to mess it up? Get the whole story in April when the book hits shelves; get it first by pre-ordering now.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsDisneyComing AttractionsCarl Barks 15 Jan 2014 12:42 PM

Our acclaimed and beloved Carl Barks Library series continues with Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Trail of the Unicorn.

Meanwhile, sneaky Gladstone Gander wants in on the action. Crosses and double-crosses ensue, and the trouble isn't over once they find their objective. Want the rest of the story (and a whole bunch more)? Pre-order now!

The printer sent us this handmade sample of our 4-volume EC Comics Slipcase Vol. 1 (which contains Corpse on the ImjinCame the Dawn50 Girls 50 and 'Tain't the Meat... It's the Humanity!) for our inspection. We caught one design error (first person to spot it gets a no-prize), which we fixed, and now the boxes are getting printed up, the sets will be assembled & shrinkwrapped, and the whole shebang will hit shelves in April. Pretty darn handsome, huh? It's a good deal, too, saving you over $20 versus buying the volumes separately and sans box. (Sorry, we're not going to be able to offer empty slipcases.) Hey, why not pre-order one for yourself or a favorite person?

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.
