Mickey Mouse Takes the Eisner at 2012 Comic-Con
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Mickey MouseGary GrothFloyd GottfredsonEisnerDisney 16 Jul 2012 11:36 AM

 Mickey Mouse: Eisner Winner

At the shortest Eisner Awards ceremony known to Comic Con International in San Diego, Fantagraphics walked away with 10 nominations in 8 categories and one solid win. Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 1 and 2 by Floyd Gottfredson (edited by David Gerstein and Gary Groth) took the Eisner for Best Archival Collections/Projects for Comic Strips, beating out our own Prince Valiant #3 - 4 by Hal Foster (edited by Kim Thompson) and other smashing works like Tarpe Mills' Miss Fury.

 Eisner Mickey Mouse

We sincerely thank everyone for their support and love of this excellent material. Gottfredson was a master of the medium and we are proud to be a home for his work. Our wheels are still spinnin' from the win but we have much more work to do.

 Wheelin' Mickey Mouse

La Crème de Crumb

From our fine colleagues at Éditions Cornélius comes this gorgeous and excellently-titled hardcover collection La Crème de Crumb, of interest to Fantagraphics loyalists because a) duh, it's Crumb and b) it includes the 1988 interview with Crumb from The Comics Journal #121 by our fearless leader Gary Groth, translated into French (as are all the comics, natch). Francophone Seattleites take note, we'll have a couple of copies for sale at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery next week.

Late last year Gary Groth interviewed the recently-departed Maurice Sendak for the forthcoming next issue of The Comics Journal (#302, due toward the end of this year). At TCJ.com, Gary shares the story of how his encounter with Sendak came together along with a sneak peek of a few choice snippets from the interview.

Family Feel from Helene Christensen on Vimeo.

Filmmaker Helene Christensen took it upon herself to create this marvelous short video about Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, largely shot back in February during our Jack Davis tribute exhibit. Its primary star is, of course, our own Larry Reid, with additional interviews with Gary Groth, Jim Woodring, Frank Santoro and others, and there's also a clip of Jack Davis's video chat at the tribute exhibit opening. Lots more familiar faces make appearances too — maybe you're in it!

Students at The Center for Cartoon Studies will have a chance to learn from the best, as our own Gary Groth is heading to White River Junction, Vermont for their annual Industry Day!

It kicks off tomorrow, Wednesday, April 4th, with a Pizza Party with Gary in the Colodny classroom! The party runs from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, and at 7:30 PM, Gary will regale the guests with "an evening of insight and wisdom," so say our friends at CCS. It's Gary and it's pizza -- that's a surefire recipe for a great night!

And then Thursday, April 5th marks Industry Day, a chance for students to have their portfolios looked at by the best in the business, while the publishers get a chance to see the future of the comics industry and know what talent to look out for. Gary will be joined by fellow industry professionals Judith Hansen, Annie Koyama, Heidi MacDonald, and Terry Nantier.

Industry Day is only open to students of The Center for Cartoon Studies, so I'm not even gonna bother giving you directions, 'cause you should know where your school is already!!! Get to class!!!

Gary Groth & R. Crumb's adventures at Comic Con India

Gary Groth at Comic Con India

Some great reports have been flowing in about Gary Groth and Robert Crumb's appearance at Comic Con India in New Delhi this past weekend, both from individuals and press — here are a few that have come to our attention. Above and below, photos of Gary giving his presentation in front of the Jumbotron while Crumb listens in rapt attention from illustrator Samia Singh, who has more pics and a brief writeup on her blog.

Mohita Nagpal of Delhi English-language daily newspaper The Pioneer talked to Gary: "There is something here for everybody who loves comics. It’s a very nice intimate event. Haven’t been to something quite like this."

Vishad Sharma of music site NH7 wrote up the event, including a brief report on Gary's presentation: "What made the talk especially priceless for me was two things – the fact that Robert Crumb was sitting about two chairs away from me (glee!), who was extremely disappointed with the questions people were asking Groth and a lady sitting behind me who pointed to Groth and asked the man next to her, 'Does this man make comics? Why is he talking if he doesn’t?'"

Even The Hollywood Reporter was there, with Nyay Bhushan getting this soundbites: "'This is our first time in India and perhaps this could inspire us to create something based on our visit,' said Crumb. 'It is great to be here because this reminds me of the exciting times when comic conventions first started out in the sixties and seventies in the U.S.,' added Groth."

And last but not least, Chris Oliveros, "The Chief" over at our esteemed colleagues Drawn & Quarterly, posts his own first-hand account and some great photos, including Aline Kominsky-Crumb and hubby Robert at the opening ceremonies and Gary's on-stage interview with Crumb:

We're hoping to squeeze a first-person recap out of Gary when he gets back this afternoon, but chances are he'll be needing to put his nose right back to the grindstone. *WHIP-CRACK!*

Gary Groth - Comic Con India

It's true: in a couple of weeks Gary Groth hops a plane to New Delhi and meets up with Robert Crumb for the 2nd Annual Indian Comics Convention at Dilli Haat!

On Saturday February 18th, Gary gives a special talk about the evolution of alternative comics in America and the history of Fantagraphics.

And on Sunday February 19th, Gary leads a live conversation with special guest of honor Robert Crumb for what promises to be an illuminating and entertaining look at the life and work of one of comics' all-time greats.

Will there be photos of Gary, Crumb and Drawn & Quarterly chief Chris Oliveros (also in attendance) sharing an elephant ride, as pondered by someone on the D&Q Twitter feed? We can dream. For the 0.65% of you who live in India (thanks, Google Analytics), this is the event of a lifetime!

There's only one kind of SOPA we like

Sopa de Gran Pena

We just want to acknowledge that we're not taking active part in the anti-SOPA/PIPA internet strike today, but we are opposed to the bills — here's the statement Gary Groth gave to Graphic Policy about it last week — and we want to thank everyone who's expressed their support of our position.
