Lust: Kinky Online Personal Ads from Seattle's The Stranger
By Ellen Forney

Ellen Forney's follow-up to her wildly popular I Love Led Zeppelin is a collection of cartoons celebrating the sometimes stunningly crude, sometimes surprisingly sweet online world of personal classifieds. Forney has for several years been illustrating the Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger's "Lustlab" classified ads by interpreting the most interesting, outrageous, or idiosyncratic ad in that week's paper. To cap it off, the collection includes frank, revealing interviews with some of the advertisers conducted by Forney, plus an introduction by the notorious sex advice columnist and novelist (and Stranger editor), Dan Savage.

168-page 6" x 6.5" black & white hardcover $19.95

Strange deck
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireJim BlanchardEllen ForneyCharles Burns 8 Jan 2008 7:39 PM

I like to play cards, so I was stoked to get this set from our pals at The Stranger. It instantly vaults past the nudie deck as my favorite. Each card features a classic cover from Strangers past, and they've had some great ones, including a bunch by Fantagraphics-published cartoonists like Jim Blanchard (who is featured on three cards, I think more than anyone), Ellen Forney, Jeremy Eaton, Charles Burns (colored by yours truly, coincidentally), and Tony Millionaire. I have no idea how to get this or if it's even for sale, so good luck. And neener-neener.

"Gettin' Horny with Forney!"...
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Ellen Forney 13 Nov 2007 1:35 PM
... is the amusing headline for a Real Change interview with Ellen Forney.
Kudos for I Killed Adolf Hitler
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under JasonEllen Forneyawards 12 Nov 2007 11:25 AM


Publishers Weekly has named Jason's I Killed Adolf Hitler to their Best Books of 2007 list. They say:

"Hard-boiled hit men, a time machine and a quest to save the world add up to a story about the permanence of love in this darkly humorous tale."

Also on the list: Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, illustrated by our pal Ellen Forney, who is called out for her "witty cartoons."

Congratulations to all!
