Next weekend, April 5th and 6th at the regal 69th Regiment Armory Fantagraphics will be participating and doing a little dance for the MoCCA Arts Fest. Gary Groth will be presiding on his court with Frank Santoro at the Fantagraphics tables for MoCCA fest on April 5-6th. We'll be on the slight right just as you enter the convention at tables A20-A23!

Debuts:The Amateurs
Two butchers arrive at work to find their shop empty of meat and their minds empty of how to do their job. As customers arrive, events become increasingly disastrous. A surreal, debut graphic novella of horror and humor with one huge, hanging question. This often hilarious, enigmatic, and uncomfortable book establishes Stechschulte as an exciting new talent.
Buddy Buys a DumpBuddy Buys a Dump The Complete Buddy Bradley Stories from "Hate" Comics Vol. 3 (2000-2013) by Peter Bagge
He's back! Now in his 30s and married with child, onetime slacker hero Buddy Bradley gets a "real" job, shaves his head, dons an eyepatch, quits his "real" job and buys the local dump - because what better place to raise a toddler? Peter Bagge's iconic character is to alternative comics what Homer Simpson has been to television animation over the past quarter-century: a generation-defining slacker and the greatest comedic character of its form and era.
 
Cosplayers
This 32 page floppy comic is a sweet & sour, sad & funny story that follows the adventures of Annie and Verti as they shoot homemade movies for YouTube, guerilla-style, and face some unexpected consequences. What could possibly go wrong? A one-shot dose of humor and melancholy from the creator of New School, BodyWorld, and Bottomless Belly Button.
 
 
 
 
Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits from the pages of Bust magazine! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials - too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc.
 
Vol. 1 (paperback)  by Charles M. Schulz This first volume, covering the first two and a quarter years of the strip, features hundreds of strips rarely reprinted before this series. Three major cast members - Schroeder, Lucy, and Linus - initially show up as infants and only "grow" into their final "mature" selves as the months go by. Even Snoopy debuts as a puppy! 
 
FRIDAY:
 
Friday night be sure to check out Robert Williams' Mr. Bitchin', a documentary about his career, showing at SVA's Beatrice Theater in collaboration with the Society of Illustrators.
 
GUESTS 2
SATURDAY PANELS:
 
2:00 Drinking Ink: Art Spiegelman and Joost Swarte in Conversation (Room One)
Art Spiegelman and Joost Swarte have a long association, dating back to the earliest days of Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly's RAW Magazine, to which Swarte was a frequent contributor. Both artists have distinguished themselves with artwork both witty and profound, both have produced expressive comics and striking single images, and both have worked in multiple media including architecture and performance. Together, the pair will discuss their careers, their shared histories, comics and more in a conversation moderated by Bill Kartalopoulos. (90 minutes)

3:30 Drew Friedman Presents Old Jewish Comedians (Room One)
Drew Friedman is an iconic cartoonist and illustrator whose intensely rendered, caricatural work first gained notice in the pages of publications including RAW and Spy, and whose illustrations regularly appear on the front page of the New York Observer. His upcoming book, Heroes of the Comics, will feature portraits of cartooning legends. Currently the subject of an exhibit at the Society of Illustrators, Friedman will discuss his Old Jewish Comedians series of books in this special presentation, revealing the concept and process behind these books, as well as their reception among the "Old Jewish Comedians" themselves. Broadcasting legend Joe Franklin will be co-hosting this auspicious panel

1:00 Robert Williams Q+A (Room Two)
Robert Williams has enjoyed a diverse and profoundly influential career expressing a singular artistic vision. Emerging from the West Coast hot rod scene (where he produced graphics for Ed "Big Daddy" Roth), Williams produced some of the finest underground comix of his era in the pages of Zap. Williams proceeded to produce a body of intense, phantasmagorical paintings and jumpstarted the so-called "lowbrow" art movement, founding the influential Juxtapoz Magazine in 1994. He will discuss his career in comics and fine art with critic and curator Carlo McCormick (Paper Magazine).

2:00 How Comics Are Queer (Room Two)
As long as there have been comics there have been queer cartoonists. Comics that authentically engaged queer experience in America emerged in the radical underground comix milieu of the 1960s and '70s, fueled by the social liberation movements of the era. Comics' status in American culture echoes queer experience: once marginalized, now accepted, but still contested-while some of the most acclaimed comics of the day speak to and from queer experience. Howard Cruse, Edie Fake, Justin Hall and L. Nichols will consider the historical and contemporary intersections of queer experience and comics with moderator Margaret Galvan (The Graduate Center, City University of New York).

GUESTS

SUNDAY PANELS:

1:00 Comics, Illustration and the Conceptual Image (Room One)

What does it mean to express an abstract idea in a concrete drawing? What is the difference between an idea that can be expressed in a single image and one that requires sequential exposition? Internationally acclaimed artists Marion Fayolle (In Pieces), Joost Swarte (Is That All There Is?), and Brecht Vandenbroucke (White Cube), work in both comics and illustration, addressing subtle emotional and intellectual concepts in each form. They will consider these questions and more in conversation with New York Times Art Director Alexandra Zsigmond.

Non Sequitur: Abstraction in Contemporary Sequential Art

February 28 - March 26, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb. 28, 7-10pm

Special Event: Sequential S'mores - Progressive Art Opening  - with Sequential Artist's Workshop and F.L.A. Gallery, Friday, Feb. 28, 6pm - 12am (click link for more info) 

Gallery Protocol is pleased to announce Non Sequitur: Abstraction in Contemporary Sequential Art, an exhibition of comic and sequential art from artists Pat Aulisio, Derek Ballard, Josh Bayer, Erin Curry, CF, Hellen Jo, Aidan Koch, Emma Louthan, Molly Colleen O'Connell, Gary Panter, Raymond Pettibon, Ron Rege Jr, Frank Santoro, Dash Shaw, and Angie Wang. Collectively, these artists represent the past, present, and future of underground and independent comics - beginning with its origins in the punk and zine movements of southern California in the late 70's, all the way through to its dispersal as a nationwide (and international) subculture today.

As the show's title suggests, the exhibition focuses particularly on how these artists incorporate notions or elements of abstraction within their work. Comics are uniquely positioned to engage with abstraction from both a narrative, linguistic (semiotic), and visual perspective. In that sense, they combine the abstraction of the novelist, the poet, and the painter all into one. Beginning with the assertion that all systems of representation are abstract, the exhibition examines the results of this conflation and how these different threads of abstraction compound, complicate, temper, or derail one another as they operate side by side within the confines of a single undertaking. The exhibition features original and preparatory works in a range of media as well as published comics in a variety of printed formats.  

Curated by Tom Hart of the Sequential Artist's Workshop, Jeff Owens, and Chase Westfall.

Cosplayers & Doctors: two new comics by Dash Shaw
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsDash ShawComing Attractions 30 Jan 2014 12:53 PM

Cosplayers by Dash Shaw

In the new Previews catalog at your local comic shop you'll find our solicitation for a new 32-page one-shot comic book by Dash Shaw. Cosplayers is a sweet & sour, sad & funny story that follows the adventures of Annie and Verti as they shoot homemade movies for YouTube, guerilla-style, and face some unexpected consequences. Read the first three pages of the story below, ask for it at your local comic shop, and look for it on the racks in April! (We'll be taking orders, too.)

Cosplayers pg 1

Cosplayers pg 2

Cosplayers pg 3

And yesterday, Dash broke this news on his blog

Doctors comes out this October from Fantagraphics Books. It's 96 pages, 6 X 8", full color.

Here's the catalog copy Fanta wrote:

"This new graphic novel from acclaimed cartoonist Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, BodyWorld, New School) is his most taut book to date. Dr. Cho is the creator of the Charon, a device that allows his staff to enter a dead patient's afterlife by taking the form of a memory in the patient's consciousness, and bring he or she back to life with one catch: the experience is traumatic and the process kills them again soon thereafter. But for some bereaved, the opportunity is priceless. So when Bell is killed in a random accident, her daughter hires Dr. Cho's team to bring her back. But what if Bell didn't want to come back? The dying unconsciously create the afterlife they want, or feel they deserve, in their minds before everything fades to black. Isn't that better than the reality, and no less meaningful than life itself? Part science-fiction thriller, part family drama, part morality play for the 21st Century, and quite possibly Shaw's best book to date."

Welp, there you go. Two new comics from Dash to look forward to this year!

Fantagraphics at Short Run Small Press Fest Seattle!

Fantagraphics is thrilled to be part of the third annual Short Run Small Press Fest here in Seattle on Saturday, November 30th at historic Washington Hall in the Central District. Even though Short Run is a festival spotlighting self-published works, limited editions, and handmade books, Fantagraphics will have a presence in many, many ways, as you will see below...

• Visit the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery at Table L-51 on the first floor of Washington Hall! We'll have an excellent array of independent comics in stock from publishers who weren't able to make the trek to Seattle, like Koyama Press, Uncivilized Books, PictureBox, and more.

Plus, throughout the day, Manager/Curator Larry Reid will be joined by special guests who got their start in small press: our own Ellen Forney, who self-published her title I Was Seven in '75 with a Xeric Grant, and Bruce Pavitt, co-founder of Sub Pop Records, which started as a zine back in 1979. Stop by the table for a chat -- all three of them have tons of experience and knowledge about self-publishing that they'd love to share with you!

•  All throughout the day, Short Run will be screening animation, including pieces from our own Dash Shaw and Lilli Carré, alongside Reel Grrls, SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team), and dozens of other animators from around the country. Screenings take place on the balcony level of Washington Hall.

•  Many Fantagraphics artists will be exhibiting with tables of their own, including legends like Peter Bagge [A-4], Jim Woodring [C-13], Jim Blanchard [A-3], and Michael Dowers [as Brownfield Press, B-6], alongside up-and-coming artists like Josh Simmons [D-18], Nate Neal [coming all the way from Brooklyn! C-15], Julia Gfrörer [E-24], and Mome veterans Andrice Arp [F-27] and T Edward Bak [J-45]. PHEW!

• Fantagraphics staffers Jason T Miles [C-11] and Jen Vaughn [landing] will be exhibiting with comics of their own!

• And then there's the panels (all taking place on the first floor)!

---> 12:20 PM: Women in Comics // Our own Megan Kelso will lead and moderate a panel focused on the females with panelists Geneviève Castrée, Gabrielle Gamboa, Roberta Gregory, Julia Gfrörer, and Virginia Paine. I have to say, Megan has been doing some amazing planning and research for this panel, and it is not to be missed!

---> 2:40 PM : The World of Comics // A survey of comics around the globe with Jason T Miles, Pat Moriarity, David Lasky, and Leonard Rifas. (Inspired by our own Kim Thompson.)

But, wait! There's more... The day before Short Run Small Press Fest, Friday, November 29th, they'll be hosting Read/Write, a day of panels, workshops, and more at the Vera Project, including... 

---> 2:00 PM : DIY Publishing in the Digital Age Panel // With our Associate Editor Eric Reynolds, plus Bruce Rutledge (Chin Music Press), self-publisher Alec Longstreth, and moderator Zack Soto (Study Group).

•  And for full-disclosure, I, Janice, your friendly Flogger, should mention I'm one of the organizers this year, so there's that...!

For the complete Short Run Seattle schedule, including Read/Write on Friday, November 29th at the Vera Project [ Warren & Republican Ave North ], and Short Run Small Press Fest on Saturday, November 30th at Washington Hall [ 153 14th Avenue ], visit shortrun.org! Both events are FREE and open to the public! See you there!

Holy yes-more-please, SPX rocked us. Jacq Cohen, Gary Groth and I traversed across the country for one of the single best comic books shows that exists.
