Weekend Romance at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Michel GagneJoe SimonJack KirbyFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 16 Apr 2012 12:35 PM

Editor Michel Gange at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery for the opening reception of our new exhibit, “Young Romance: The Best of Simon & Kirby’s Romance Comics” with our special guest, Michel Gagné (seen above), editor of our brand new collection of the same title!

Young Romance at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Young Romance at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Gagné's interpretive exhibit features enlarged examples of Simon and Kirby’s romance comics, which he spent five years restoring for this gorgeous new collection.

Young Romance at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Michel gave a great presentation on his delicate restoration process, which you can watch below (YouTube link)! WARNING: I have to apologize -- I'm not the best filmographer, and as the sun was setting in Seattle, the lighting in the video gets kinda weird. But please don't let the lousy lighting detract from Michel's great presentation -- it's really fascinating to hear how he cleaned up all those old images and restored them for this book!

Jack Kirby original art at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Also, our exhibit features an original Jack Kirby page from 1967's "Fantastic Four #65," thanks to Gary Groth, of course!

“Young Romance: The Best of Simon & Kirby’s Romance Comics” will be available for viewing through May 9, 2012, and you can get the book any ol' time! If you can't make it to Seattle, check out more photos of the exhibit at the Fantagraphics Flickr! The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.) just minutes from downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110.

Cannibal Fuckshirts from Johnny Ryan!
Written by janice headley | Filed under merchJohnny RyanfashionFantagraphics Bookstore 9 Apr 2012 12:22 PM

Cannibal Fuckface t-shirt by Johnny Ryan

Since we can't walk around covered in blood like Cannibal Fuckface (well, most of us anyway), you can at least have the man himself across your chest!

It's the Prison Pit t-shirt by Johnny Ryan, from our friends at Monster Worship! Two-color design on a sinister black t-shirt. Short sleeved for your arms, or an evil worm-like creature.

Janice Headley in a Johnny Ryan H&M t-shirt

In an addendum to this previous FLOG post, I had no luck tracking down the highly-sought after Johnny Ryan-designed tees from H&M. But a certain someone did, and that would be Miss Bella Reid, the 13-year-old daughter of Larry, our manager and curator at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery! THANK YOU, BELLA!!! It's awesome!

If you don't have a pre-teen spitfire looking out for you, you can keep checking H&M stores across the country.  Or just give it up and get yourself some Johnny Ryan books instead 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.

And keep an eye out for that Bella. Girl's smart as a whip, and I'm sure you'll be hearing more from her in the years to come!

Fantagraphics Bookstore Features Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Romance Comics
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Michel GagneJoe SimonJack KirbyFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 5 Apr 2012 12:34 AM

Jack Kirby is among the most influential American artists of the last century, but a substantial body of Kirby’s work has been largely overlooked until recently. In the post-war years, with the popularity of superhero comic books fading, Kirby teamed with writer Joe Simon to create the new genre of romance comics. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery celebrates these forgotten works with “Young Romance: The Best of Simon & Kirby’s Romance Comics.” The interpretive exhibition opens on Saturday, April 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM with a discussion by Michel Gagné, author of a recent collection of the same title from Fantagraphics Books.

At the end of World War II, with soldiers returning from long deployments, romance was in the air. The superhero comics that served to instill a sense of patriotic heroism leading up to the global conflict had lost their appeal. Simon and Kirby seized on these emerging sensibilities to create one of the most popular comic book series of all time. Unlike previous comic book genres, the work appealed largely to women readers. The stories and imagery reflected mid-century American society while discretely challenging the conventional morality of the era. Kirby’s work from this period was mimicked by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein and others, and is emblematic of post-war American aesthetics.

Curator Michel Gagné will discuss his delicate restoration process at the opening reception on Saturday, April 14. An exhibition will display enlarged examples of Simon and Kirby’s romance comics and examine the creative process of these American masters. Gagné has worked as an animator and cartoonist for Pixar, Disney, DC Comics and the Cartoon Network. He won the 2011 Annie Award for Best Animated Video Game and the 2012 BAFTA GAME Award for Best Debut Game for his independent creation Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.) just minutes from downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts community.

Daily OCD: 4/3/12
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviewsPaul KarasikPat ThomasMonte SchulzJasoninterviewsGabriella GiandelliFantagraphics BookstoreDaily OCD 4 Apr 2012 12:42 AM

Today's Online Commentary & Diversions:

Interiorae

Review: "Every one of Giandelli’s surfaces -- walls, windows, bedspreads, books -- seems alive. Her colors almost wriggle. The darkness she draws is so black it’s wet. She approaches long corridors like David Lynch does in his films: not something you walk down, but something you’re swallowed by. Interiorae is engulfing.... In restored and essential color, this collected edition gives the mood the necessary space to simmer and boil -- just like poetry has the white of the page around it to slow you down and give it weight. Even before you notice the chapter titles are counting down to zero, you can feel that something about to happen. The men and women who live there can’t see it, but everything’s about to change.... In the end, Interiorae isn’t about either mundane, everyday reality or the vivid, symbolic realm of dreams. Its power’s in the precarious space between the two." – Martyn Pedler, Bookslut

Athos in America

Review: "While Athos in America is as widely varied as the author's most recent collection, 2009's Low Moon, its stories employ less deadpan humor. In addition, this new volume presents some of Jason's most experimental comics yet.... One thing that hasn't changed is the ways in which Jason conjures up a kind of understated humor from his somber protagonists that serves to lighten up the serious situations they find themselves in. Athos in America may be darker and relatively more straight-faced than Jason's other work, but it shows that one of the more unique cartoonists today is continuing to evolve." – Phil Guie, CriticalMob

The Big Town

Review: "The Big Town evokes a lost era through language and flamboyant characters reminiscent of Fitzgerald, Dos Passos, Ring Lardner, etc. Yet it’s also eerily relevant to our own time with its study of the role of business, crime, morality, and love in our lives." – Jack Eidt, Wilder Utopia

Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975

Interview: The San Francisco Chronicle's Julian Guthrie talks to Pat Thomas about Listen Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975: "The image of the Panther became something even Hollywood playfully played with. You had Tom Wolfe's book Radical Chic, and you had folks like Leonard Bernstein hanging out with the Panthers. Everyone wanted to get close to the heat."

Larry Reid's Other Obsession at the Wright Exhibition Space!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 26 Mar 2012 11:41 AM

Everyone knows about the insane art and comix collection of our own local legend Larry Reid, curator and manager of the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery.

But do you know about his other secret obsession? ... I'll give you a clue. It rhymes with "nascar," and, um, it's NASCAR.

The Wright Exhibition Space in Seattle has blown Larry's cover with their latest exhibition Collecting: Art is a Slippery Slope, a look at what art collectors, dealers, and artists themselves collect when they're not collecting, y'know, art. Everything from folding chairs to mixers are on display alongside Larry's auto-racing lunchboxes and model kits.

The Wright Exhibition Space is located at 407 Dexter Avenue North in Seattle. The exhibit runs through May 26th, and is free.

And it's free to visit Larry 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*: Snow White
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreDown with OPPCamille Rose Garcia 25 Mar 2012 5:04 PM

Snow White illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia

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

Once Upon A Time... the FLOG kicked off an occasional column titled "Down With OPP," where we spotlighted books from other publishers that you can find at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Seattle. And this week, we're looking at The Brothers Grimm's Snow White, as illustrated by our own Camille Rose Garcia, out now on Harper Design, an imprint of HarperCollins.

I love the way Camille captures the classic story with her whimsical watercolor illustrations! The colors are vibrantly reproduced on glossy pages in this petite hard-bound book, with some fanciful font treatments narrating the story. You can watch video of Camille working on the book here.

Camille will be celebrating the release of Snow White with a signing at Roq La Rue here in Seattle this Saturday, March 31st. And then join us down the street at Shorty's [ 2222 2nd Avenue ] for the Emerald City Comicon Pinball Party! Camille will be a special guest, and a signed copy of her wonderful Fantagraphics title, The Magic Bottle, will be just one of our many excellent prizes!

And find your "happily ever after" 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.

Really In Love with Real Comet Press at the Fantagraphics Bookstore

Our beloved Store Manager/Curator Larry Reid has already written about our phenomenal opening night for the Real Comet Press Retrospective, but I couldn't resist sharing a few more photos, and some video that Mike captured:

Real Comet Press publications

The Comet Tavern matchbooks by Lynda Barry
What?! Not only did she run a publishing house, but she ran a club? Stop being so cool, Cathy! Matchbooks designed by Lynda Barry.

Flipbooks by Ruth Hayes
Rad flipbooks by Ruth Hayes.

The Bigger The Hair The Closer to God by Michael Dougan
Michael Dougan shares a Texas motto.

I am so grateful to Larry for bringing Real Comet Press into the spotlight, because it's an amazing, inspiring chapter in Seattle's small-press history. I'm totally enamoured with its founder Cathy Hillenbrand: she built this little publishing empire out of her home, supporting the works of artists like Michael Dougan, Art Chantry, Ruth Hayes, and one of my heroes, Lynda Barry.  As you can see in this video that Mike captured, I'm not the only enamoured of Cathy (she's the one in the striped dress):

Our look back at this influential indie publisher continues this weekend at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery as Portland author Susan E. Kirtley will be discussing her new book, Lynda Barry: Girlhood Through the Looking Glass, with Cathy, who published Barry’s first four books. Join us for that on Saturday, March 24, at 6:00 PM.

And Cathy Hillenbrand will also be at the Emerald City Comicon for our panel "Northwest Noir: Seattle's Legacy of Counterculture Comix."  Comicon attendees can check that out on Friday, March 30th at 6:00 PM in Room 3AB.

And our Real Comet Press Retrospective will be up through April 10th, so come by the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery to catch this exhibit while you can!  If you can't make it to Seattle, we've got even more pics from opening night at the Fantagraphics Flickr.

Today's Online Commentary & Diversions:

Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975

Interview: AlterNet's Emily Wilson talks to Pat Thomas about writing Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975: "I was trying to write a book that was pro-Panthers, but not with an agenda as to what I wanted to say other than to sort of humanize these people. To me they were more than just statues frozen in time; they were people I was hanging out with in current day. I just wanted to capture their humanity in some way. Militancy or their strident side was just one part of it. I wanted to focus on how their legacy crossed paths with pop culture. You know, I talk about this wacky 'Partridge Family' episode where they meet the Black Panthers. It’s not a dogmatic book.... It’s meant to be, for lack of a better word, fun."

Interview: On the Penny Ante Editions blog author James Tracy also talks with Pat Thomas: "I don’t know if it’s a danger [when white people take an interest in Black culture], unless it’s KKK member or some twisted 'White Power' kook… otherwise, there will always be a reason (good or bad or misguided) for Whites to explore Black culture. Frankly, America needs to have more dialogue between races, embracing their differences as well as what they have in common. I didn’t try to pretend to be Black - and that was something that Elaine Brown liked about me. I didn’t put on a 'mask' and start to talk Black or pull that kind of shit."

Bill Griffith: Lost and Found - Comics 1969-2003

Review (Audio): The March 11 episode of Easy Rider, the radio show for "rock, punk rock, country, power pop, garage and comics" from Radio PFM out of Arras in northern France, features Bill Griffith: Lost and Found: Comics 1969-2003 among their Comics of the Week

Analysis: In the new entry in The Hooded Ultilitarian's critical roundtable on Jaime Hernandez, Noah Berlatsky examines nostalgia in the Locas stories, especially "Browntown" and "The Love Bunglers," from his trademark contrarian standpoint
