Down with OPP*: In Case We Die Audiobook
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsDown with OPPDanny Bland 10 Oct 2013 11:11 AM


* Other People's Publications, er... "Production"!
** Yeah, You Know Me.

It's not enough that Danny Bland's debut novel is amazing, no.  Local 638 Records had to go and release an audio version of this semi-autobiographical wicked tale that takes "amazing" to a whole 'nother level!!!

Just take a look at this stellar roster of readers: Duff McKagan (Guns & Roses), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), Steve Earle, Aimee Mann, Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Marc Maron (WTF With Marc Maron)... and that's just to name a few! See the complete star-studded line-up and sample some passages at their Bandcamp page. Together, the audio book is over seven hours long! Hello, road trip accompaniment!

Plus, each incredible artist, actor, and musician who recorded a chapter DONATED their time and talents.  If that's not a testament to the powerful prose of Bland, I don't know what is.

Believe it or not, it gets even better:  a portion of all audiobook proceeds will go to MusiCares, a non-profit arm of the Grammy Foundation providing medical care and sobriety resources for musicians. (Once you read the book, you'll understand why!)

If somehow I still haven't convinced you, then stop by Elliott Bay Bookstore in Seattle on Saturday, October 12th to witness a riveting reading by Bland himself at 7:00 PM! Then come get your CD at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110. (Don't live in Seattle? Click on over to Local 638 Records for all your purchasing needs!)

Marble Season
* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

It's summertime, and the perfect way to spend it is with the "semi-autobiographical" novel Marble Season by the great Gilbert Hernandez, published by our dear friends at Drawn & Quarterly!

Sure, I s'pose it takes place during the school year, but there's just something about Beto's stories of kids staging backyard plays, shooting marbles, and holding initiations for secret clubs that made me think of my own childhood and running around with no parents around during summer vacations!

Even though it was inspired by Gilbert's own childhood growing up in suburban 1960s California, anyone can relate to the family relationships, to crushes on classmates, and, of course, to the developing love of comic books! (Although I will admit I kept thinking, "Is that s'posed to be baby Jaime?! Is Mario the older brother with bad grades?! Hee!")

Get your copy of Marble Season along with many, many, many other Gilbert Hernandez titles at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.

Down with OPP*: The Big Feminist But
Written by janice headley | Filed under Ulli LustRon Regé Jrjeffrey brownGabrielle BellFantagraphics BookstoreDown with OPPAndrice Arp 25 Jun 2013 12:00 PM


* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

I'm a big fan of anthologies -- I think they're a fantastic way of discovering new artists whose work you might be unfamiliar with, nestled beside the work of some of your favorites.  So, I was excited to see on our shelves The Big Feminist But: Comics About Women, Men, and the IFs, ANDs, & BUTs of Feminism, edited by Shannon O'Leary and Joan Reilly.

There a quite a few Fantagraphics artists included: Ron Regé, Jr. submits the transcendent piece "Adam & Lilith," while Ulli Lust teams up with Kai Pfeiffer for "Her Fat Feminist Ass." There's also Gabrielle Bell's piece on Valerie Solanas, and Justin Hall, our delightful editor of No Straight Lines, turns in a fantastic piece on gay marriage. Mome-veteran Andrice Arp contibutes a collaboration with Jesse Reklaw, and Jeffrey Brown makes an appearance with "Doesn't This Baby Realize We're Trying to Redefine Gender Roles?". 

That's just a sampling of the artists in this thoughtful self-published anthology, and I did indeed discover some new artists who I'm now curious about!

Perhaps you will too, when you pick up this collection at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.

Down with OPP*: New Jobs
Written by janice headley | Filed under Tom KaczynskiFantagraphics BookstoreDown with OPPDash Shaw 30 Apr 2013 10:30 AM

* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

This Saturday, May 4th, we're thrilled to present a signing with acclaimed artist Dash Shaw for his latest Fantagraphics titles 3 New Stories and his ambitious hardcover graphic novel New School.

We'll also have this new mini-comic available, New Jobs, published by Tom Kaczynski’s mighty imprint Uncivilized Books. This limited edition mini measures a mere 1/2 page, but packs in as much emotional resonance as the brick-sized Bottomless Belly Button.

A couple living in Bed-Stuy are going to have a child. To support the child, they need to get new jobs. It's a story any of us could relate to. My heart especially went out to the panel with a stack of stark bills piled on a table. 

Dash will be signing with us from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, and will discuss his work and screen short animations, including Seraph, which premiered at the recent Sundance Film Festival. Hurry out here and get your copies of his new work while they last, especially this limited edition mini!

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.  

Down with OPP*: Relish
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsDown with OPP 16 Apr 2013 10:30 AM

* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

Dig your teeth into Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, the new graphic memoir from New York cartoonist Lucy Knisley, out now from our friends at First Second!

Larry had an advance copy behind the counter a few months ago, and I was instantly charmed by Lucy's stories of growing up as the daughter of "foodies."  Her love of food propels her around the world, finding the perfect croissants in France and addictive candy in Tokyo. 

And perfectly enough, interspersed between these vignettes is recipes from Lucy herself!  A comic that helps promote healthy eating? Yes, it's true!

You can get a taste of Relish: My Life in the Kitchen this coming Friday, April 19th at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as Lucy herself stops by for a slideshow and signing at 7:00 PM! And our own Chef Larry Reid will be whipping up some of the dishes from the book, which is something you won't want to miss in itself! 

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.  Bon Appétit!

Cometbus #55

* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

Not only am I thrilled when a new issue of Cometbus comes out, but I'm thrilled to find it on the shelves of our very own Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!

Aaron's up to issue 55 now, wow, and this one boasts a most beautiful wraparound cover by our own Jordan Crane. "Pen Pals" is the story of Aaron and Yula, his Ukranian friend.  It's gorgeous, beautifully-written, and I can't believe it's only three stupid bucks.

Get yours while supplies last at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110. 

Down with OPP*: War + Penis
Written by janice headley | Filed under Johnny RyanFantagraphics BookstoreDown with OPP 17 Jan 2013 11:13 AM

* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

If you're "friends" with Johnny Ryan on Facebook, chances are you've seen quite a few of these drawings before: in 2012, he waged a six-month-long artistic-battle against Frédéric Fleury (founder of Frederic Magazine), with each gentleman retaliating with drawings even more obscene than the one before it!

Italian publisher The Milan Review has collected their illustrated insults into this fine 140-page book (140 pages?! Wow, guys...), which we now have in stock at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery! Is this the most penises ever drawn in one comic book? I'm inclined to believe it is!

You can choose from two covers: “America Wins!” by Johnny or “France Wins!” by Frédéric.

War + Penis

The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.

Tout Seul dans la Forêt en Plein Jour, Avez-Vous Peur?

Ever since her performance at our Love and Rockets Anniversary Party, we've just been entranced by artist and musician Geneviève Castrée!

And for a limited time only, we have some of her comics and music for sale at the store, including this particularly exquisite album, recorded under the alias Woelv for K Records in 2007.

Not only does this record feature Geneviève's beautifully haunting music, but it also comes with a 60-page book of her lovely illustrations that exists to better understand the stories that are melodically expressed in her songs.

This entire record is sung in the French language, so if you're not Kim Thompson, you can read the translations of the lyrics included in the book, which is greatly recommended by Geneviève.

Geneviève Castrée

The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110.  Open until 4:00 PM on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve; closed on Christmas and New Year's Day.
