Ghosts and Ruins is Ben Catmull's follow-up to his wildly popular debut Monster Parade. Josh Simmons’ recent collection of short stories, The Furry Trap, similarly explores a sinister world of undiluted horror. Simmons will also sign copies of earlier graphic novels House and Jessica Farm as well as his equally compelling minicomics.

This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Art Attack. Don’t miss the return of the Trailer Park Trannies drag show at the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall along with other colorful attractions throughout the historic industrial arts corridor.

On Saturday, September 7th, the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery welcomes Drawn & Quarterly cartoonist Brian Ralph to celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated Reggie-12, a hilarious pop-culture send-up of the infallible boy hero first presented in the seminal Asian culture magazine Giant Robot.  Join us from 6:00 to 8:00 PM as The Cave-In and Daybreak author presents a hilarious slide show with a signing to follow.

Reggie-12 is a young robot with endless enthusiasm. He lives with a bumbling sad-sack friend, a wise-cracking cat, and a well-meaning but forgetful inventor. Laughs explode from the page in this work, which reinterprets classic Japanese adventure manga through Brian Ralph's trademark style. Come along for a wild ride with Reggie-12, Casper, and Professor Tinkerton as they eat pizza, play video games, and get dissed by bad guys.

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.

Duff

Our longtime friend Duff McKagan of Guns and Roses fame dropped by Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Thursday to pick up copies of Henry and Glenn Forever ahead of a national tour with his group Loaded. "Don't tell Henry," he implored. (Ooops.)

Speaking of loaded: Hop on your bike and head down to the Dead Baby Bike Downhill Party tonight where you'll find abundant beverages and free sets by more than 20 bands on five stages throughout the historic Georgetown neighborhood. Don't miss BMX daredevils, DJs, tall bike jousting, unmitigated mayhem and merriment into the wee hours. The bookstore will stay open late for the occasion. Drop by and say hi!

Ghosts and Ruins by Ben Catmull

The Furry Trap by Josh Simmons

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery hosts two of the country’s most accomplished young cartoonists on Saturday, August 10. Josh Simmons and Ben Catmull will appear from 6:00 to 9:00 PM to sign copies of recent publications from Fantagraphics Books.

Ghosts and Ruins is Ben Catmull's follow-up to his wildly popular debut Monster Parade. With a rendering style suggestive of Edward Gorey's gothic masterworks, Catmull ingeniously imagines haunted dwellings and the circumstances of their otherworldly occupants. Ghosts and Ruins provides a perfect complement of exquisite art and enchanting narrative. Josh Simmons’ recent collection of short stories similarly explores a sinister world of undiluted horror. By turns macabre and malevolent, The Furry Trap follows in the footsteps of his gripping graphic novel Jessica Farm. Simmons will also sign copies of his equally compelling minicomcs Habit, Training, and Flayed Corpse.

This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Art Attack. Don’t miss the return of the Trailer Park Trannies drag show at the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall along with other colorful attractions throughout the historic industrial arts corridor.

Charles Peterson Captures Soda Pop at the Fantagraphics Bookstore!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsDanny Bland 30 Jul 2013 12:13 PM

OH MAN! Are you kidding me?! During the recent Sub Pop Silver Jubilee, the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery was thrilled enough to host a day of events celebrating comics and our role in Sub Pop's history.  But to have the store captured on film by world-renowned photographer Charles Peterson himself?!  Holy hell!!!

(And, it goes without saying, all photos are copyright Charles Peterson, so be cool, for real.) 

Here Charles takes a crowd shot during our panel with him, Peter Bagge, Danny Bland, and Sub Pop founder Bruce Pavitt. It's like one of his classic Nirvana crowd shots, but y'know, with books! (And nice Love & Rockets t-shirt, dude-to-the-left!) 

Shortly after the panel concluded, Danny took the mic again for a reading of his forthcoming novel In Case We Die, which takes place in Seattle during the '90s. Sure were a lot of ladies at this reading...

Danny read a passage of the first time the book's unapologetic protagonists, Charlie Hyatt and Carrie Finch, try heroin. I couldn't help but notice a few audience members cringing at how descriptive his words were! 

Musician Greg Dulli, frontman for Afghan Whigs, The Gutter Twins, and more, also took the mic for a reading.  I believe his passage began with the sentence, "Her tits looked amazing."

Another great portrait by Peterson -- of course, he's only capable of great photography, amiright?

You can check out the full-set of Peterson's photos from Sub Pop Silver Jubilee at his website here. Thank you, Charles, for capturing us in your beautiful iconic style -- what an honor! 

If you're in Seattle, drop by All-City Coffee to see the exhibit CP25/SP25, featuring 25 arresting images by Peterson commemorating 25 years of the Sub Pop phenomenon. And hey, you can purchase some of those photos next door at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, which has our own Sub Pop exhibit up through August 7th.

Our store 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.
