Jim Woodring exhibition and book signings at Fantagraphics Bookstore in October
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Jim WoodringFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 27 Sep 2013 12:37 PM

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery presents Jim Woodring: Fran

September 27, 2013 – Seattle, WA . Join visionary artist and cartoonist Jim Woodring at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on October 12 for an exhibition and book signing commemorating publication of his latest graphic novel Fran. The event features works created with his giant quill pen and musical entertainment by Stephen Steinbrink.

Seattle-based iconoclast Jim Woodring has enchanted readers for years with the improbable adventures of Frank and a supernatural cast of supporting characters. Metaphysical romance enters the picture in Fran, when the title character seduces Frank. Woodring describes this latest wordless volume as both a sequel and prequel to his sensational graphic novels Weathercraft and Congress of the Animals – completing a surrealistic circle. The idiosyncratic artist will display imaginative artworks created with his giant quill pen, as well as the 7 foot-long-pen itself.

The opening reception on Saturday, October 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM includes musical entertainment by K recording artist Stephen Steinbrink. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing art presentations throughout the historic business district.

On Saturday, October 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, Fantagraphics Bookstore and Elysian Brewing host a preview of the latest Woodring-inspired Oddland beer series. Woodring will demonstrate his prowess with his giant pen while costumed revelers sample his latest concoction.

Celebrate Baseball’s Golden Age at Fantagraphics Bookstore on Saturday
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Willard MullinFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 12 Sep 2013 12:33 PM

Willard Mullin poster

With baseball’s pennant races heating up, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery looks back to an earlier era of the national pastime. Willard Mullin’s Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934 – 1972 chronicles the game and its legendary players. The bookstore will display pages from the artist’s long career opening Saturday, September 14.

As America’s premier sports cartoonist, Willard Mullin was in New York to record the careers of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Lou Gehrig. He witnessed Jackie Robinson’s historic integration of the game and documented the departure of the Dodgers and Giants to the west. In many significant ways, the game of baseball reflected the changes in mid-century American society, and Mullin’s delightful drawings captured the essence of the era with both humor and reverence.

Fantagraphics' deluxe hardcover edition of Willard Mullin’s Golden Age of Baseball preserves the legacy of this American master for posterity. The opening of the exhibit on Saturday, September 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts community. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street, minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

In many significant ways, the game of baseball reflected the changes in mid-century American society, and Mullin’s delightful cartoons and caricatures captured the essence of the era with both humor and reverence.

Brian Ralph at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreevents 5 Aug 2013 2:13 PM

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.
