Karasik and Newgarden at Desert Island - pics

Paul Karasik & Mark Newgarden at Desert Island, Brooklyn NY, 04/18/08

Paul Karasik sends along photos and reports from last weekend's event in Brooklyn:

Well, it happened. Karasik and Newgarden in the same place at the same time. Tears of joy were wept by those in attendance. Tears of sorrow were wept for those who were not. An exhibit of Garbage Pail Kids rejects and Fletcher Hanks' student work remains on display at Desert Island in Williamsburg, a very fine book store.

More photos (all © Peter Angelo Simon) can be seen here; more info about this event can be read here.

Fletcher Hanks, Jr., RIP
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Paul KarasikFletcher Hanks 23 Mar 2008 7:21 PM

HanksJr_WithBook.jpgPaul Karasik just sent along the unfortunate news that Fletcher Hanks, Jr., passsed away this week at the age of 90. Hanks, known by friends as "Christy," is the son of comic book pioneer Fletcher Hanks, Sr.

Christy was unaware of his estranged father's history in comics until Paul hunted him down to learn more about the (still) mysterious cartoonist. Paul sent over these photos shortly after completing the book "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets"-- a collection of Hanks' comic book output. The picture below shows Christy's discovery that the book was dedicated to him.

As a pilot, inventor, and WWII veteran, Christy lived quite a life himself. Please read the obituary here.

It's a Hanks World
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Paul KarasikFletcher Hanksevents 10 Mar 2008 10:51 AM

You have exactly one-week to go over to the Comics Journal website and waste perfectly valuable work time reading an interview with Paul Karasik about Fletcher Hanks. Hanks is featured on the cover of the Journal's Best of the Year issue and they are offering the contents on-line for free this week only as a promotion.

Also, if you in in NYC this coming weekend, Paul will be signing books at Jim Hanley's Universe on Friday, March 14 from 5-7. After the Karasik signing, head on over to Rocketship in Brooklyn for a Hotwire nightcap at 8PM!

...and then on Saturday, March 15, Karasik will be giving a workshop on "Comics Deconstruction" at SPLAT: the Graphic Novel Symposium.


Fantagraphics Uncensored: Eric Reynolds, Promo Guy

Jacob: "Did Norman Mailer really call Laura Warholic "brilliantly written?"

Eric: "He did! Very shortly before he died. Much like Vonnegut did with Fletcher Hanks. We're killing America's greatest writers."

FLOG: That most self assured and bloated and cul de sac and yet threadbare of comic blogs.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey KornerFletcher Hanks 12 Dec 2007 10:30 AM
Eric Reynolds pointed out the blog of "Antonius Radio Comix," a bewilderingly anti-comics cartoonist's blog and then Mike Baehr made the keen observation that "surely this guy is the Fletcher Hanks of comics blogging." And so I introduce to you: Antonius.

"I drew a cartoon for playboy I can not scan and neither show here, but it was that experiance in which things seemed to turn for me, and my armor first started to shred. It was their reaction to a cartoon I sent in in august for a nov or dec holiday issue. Their reaction was of a type which went beyond any dislike I ever saw before , and my mom thought, with her hatred for Hef and his published gynocological exams flying , said I got what I deserved. When you fuck a pig you get warts, she told me in Italian..."

To follow his thoughts on our Fletcher Hanks book I recommend you start with the entry of November 29 and work back: "I was once offered a jesuit scholarship due to a papers I wrote in tenth grade about Remus, the first victim of Romulus and his need for power,Leonardo, even the tuscans and such.... But for the pages I now see, I am almost speechless, they are that joyous."

And yet: "My new found love of Fletcher Hanks came to a sad bust..."
