Fantagraphics Bookstore at the Anacortes Unknown Music Series!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsAnders Nilsen 17 Jul 2014 9:30 PM

It's that time of year again: the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is taking the show on the road to beautiful Anacortes, WA for the 4th Annual Anacortes Unknown Music Series, co-organized by Northwest comic artist Geneviève Castrée.

On Saturday, July 19th and Sunday, July 20th, we'll be on-site during the festival's Small Press Book Fair, carrying a handful of our titles alongside some of the self-published mini-comix and zines that we carry at the store.

Anders Nilsen signing at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, July 30, 2011

And this year, The Unknown welcomes special guest Anders Nilsen! Anders will be making a couple of special appearances. Join him on Friday evening, July 18th at Watermark Book Company [ 612 Commercial Ave ] from 4:00 to 5:00 PM, for a free signing.

And then on Saturday and Sunday, Anders will be tabling alongside Fantagraphics at the festival's Small Press Book Fair at The Unknown itself [ 1202 7th Street, upstairs ] from Noon to 4:00 PM.

So, come by, say hi, bring cash, and get some great comics! 3-Day passes are SOLD OUT (which sadly means, you're outta luck to see Anders' dinner-time presentation), but tickets will be sold at all other shows.

Art Attacks Georgetown This Saturday
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreart shows 8 Jul 2014 11:20 AM

 All_City_Art_Attack

Beginning in 2008, the Georgetown Merchants Association commissioned graphic artist Tim Silbaugh to design posters for the Georgetown Art Attack. Working with Fantagraphics curator and GMA president Larry Reid, Silbaugh's monthly motifs convey something about distinctive character and colorful culture of the historic Georgetown industrial arts corridor.

 July_2014_Art_Attack

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery will host an exhibition of the posters next door at All City Coffee opening Saturday, July 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The digital composite prints on archival stock are available in a signed, limited edition. Prints can be purchased at Fantagraphics Bookstore for $25 unframed ($40 framed.) The exhibition continues through September 9, 2014.

Blowout at Fantagraphics Bookstore

SoundWave 

Honk Fest West on Friday was a blast! Over 30 cacophonous brass bands from across the country descended on Georgetown for this annual gathering. As was the case last year, the event began on a somber note with a funeral march in front of Fantagraphics Bookstore in memory of Kim Thompson on the first anniversary of his passing. The concerts climaxed with a pitched percussion battle between the Super Bowl champion Seahawks Blue Thunder and the Garfield Drumline (alma mater of musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, and Macklemore.) Too much fun!

McGinn_Honk_Fest
Our good friend and former Mayor Mike McGinn dropped in to do some comix shopping during the festival. Lest we be accused of favoritism, we also played host to current Mayor Ed Murray a week earlier at the colorful Georgetown Carnival below. Good times.

The Accidental Love God
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under staffPeter BaggeJessica AbelFantagraphics historyFantagraphics BookstoreeventsDame Darcy 9 May 2014 12:42 PM

About the time I began working for Fantagraphics as marketing and promotions director, Peter Bagge ran a contest in the third issue of his wildly popular Hate comic book. "Win a Date With Stinky" urged female readers to "Send in one or more glamorful photos and/or drawings of yourself" and "Explain in 25 words or less why you're worthy of Stinky's affection." What self-respecting woman, I wondered, would enter a contest to win a date with a comic book character? Named Stinky? I was about to find out. I spent several months acting as Peter's unwitting accomplice on a series of surreptitious "Stinky Dates" that saw me playing Leonard the Love God opposite lovely and talented young artists like Jessica Abel and Dame Darcy. This buffoonery was documented in the pages of Hate, much to amusement of my wonderful wife, not to mention the fashionable alternative rock band Babes in Toyland. (Don't ask.)

Hate_3Hate_9

Like countless members of my generation, Peter Bagge's Hate was a funny and affectionate chronicle of my misspent youth. Beyond that, his work played a pivotal role in shaping the ideology of a youth movement that penetrated popular culture on a global scale. His comix have enriched our lives in ways we can only now begin to appreciate.

Buddy_Does_SeattleBuddy_Buys_Dump  

Join us in celebrating the many accomplishments of this incredibly gifted artist on Saturday, May 10 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as we debut the latest, and perhaps final chapter of the Buddy Bradley story, Buddy Buys a Dump. The reception includes an exhibition of original comix pages, complimentary beverages, a book signing, and special musical performances by Kelli Frances Corrado and The Hinges. See you all at 6:00 PM on Saturday.
