Wanna See Something Scary?
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Thomas OttSimon HanselmannRichard SalaJoe KubertGary PanterFantagraphics BookstoreeventsEC ComicsDaniel ClowesConor StechschulteChris WrightCharles BurnsCarl BarksBill SchellyBen CatmullAl Columbia 6 Oct 2014 11:52 AM

With Halloween approaching, it's a good time to consider some spooky favorites from Fantagraphics Books.

 Big_Baby2  Ghost_World2

The formative work of Charles Burns in Big Baby foreshadows the brilliance that would follow. Alluring stories like "Curse of the Molemen," "Blood Club," and "Teen Plague" remain creepy and compelling while exploring themes of adolescent angst. Ghost World by Daniel Clowes is a similarly insightful examination of the otherworldly imaginations of its youthful protagonists. It remains among the greatest graphic novels - and film adaptations - of all time.

Pim_Francie2 

Al Columbia's Pim & Francie is at first blush a collection of meticulously rendered drawings, but a closer examination reveals a seductive narrative involving a cute cartoon couple caught in a world of horrific nightmares.

 Ghost_in_the_Grotto2

Ghost of the Grotto by comics genius Carl Barks is a playful adventure set in an exotic island locale, sure to appeal to kids and adults alike. See also The Old Castle's Secret for more fowl frights.

Megahex2   Amateurs2

A misanthropic witch wrestles with real world issues in Simon Hanselmann's Megahex and surreal horror unfolds in The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte as two butchers are afflicted with a mysterious case of amnesia. Meat these amazing artists this Saturday at Fantagraphics Bookstore.

Fall2014_front2    October_2014_Art_Attack_low_copy

More terrifying tales can be found in Ben Catmull's Ghosts and Ruins, Gary Panter's Jimbo in Purgatory, the EC Comics Library from midcentury America's masters of macabre, Weird Horrors & Daring Adventures: The Joe Kubert Archive Vol. 1 edited by Bill SchellyBlacklung by Chris WrightR.I.P by Thomas Ott, and everything by Richard Sala.

(From Panter's 2013 Fredericks & Frasier exhibit) 

Thursday, September 4th 

Influential cartoonist, painter, and professor, Gary Panter, will be celebrating his newst work during an art exhibition at Fredericks & Frasier Gallery with an opening reception on September 4th, from 6-8 PM!

Surreal pop art, with a day-glo vibe. Or expressionistic sci-fi and punk cartoons. Maybe imaginative, and super saturated set designs. How about shoe illustrator? All of these things describe the award winning artist throughout his extensive and impressive career. Be a part of the brilliant madness with his third exhibition installment at the Chelsea gallery, that will open early on August 26th, and run through September 27th. Featuring original paintings and bead lists, which aesthetically sounds like the best thing ever.

OCD EXTRA: Rolling Stone's Top 50
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Stan SakaiRobert CrumbreviewsLove and RocketsJoe SaccoJaime HernandezGilbert HernandezGary PanterDisneyDaniel ClowesDaily OCDCarol TylerCarl Barks 6 May 2014 3:53 PM
ROlling stone

Rolling Stone recently listed it's Top 50 Non-Superhero Graphic Novels and we made up 22% of that list (including a few books that we published and have been rereleased by others). If you haven't picked up one of these books, get steppin' to your local comic book store, buy one from the website, visit the library---you've go so many options! Picks by Joe Gross also of the Austin-American Statesman.
Safe Area Gorazde 
47 Safe Area Gorazde by Joe Sacco "Joe Sacco is one of the medium's premier journalists; that he has focused on war-torn regions makes his work feel that much more vital and impressive...Gorazde - is a great place to start."
 You'll Never Know
44 You'll Never Know series by C. Tyler "Tyler is a top flight memoirist, and You'll Never Know pulses with a maturity not often found in the medium.
Usagi Yojimbo 
43 Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai "Never less than thoughtful and entertaining, Usagi Yojimbo is one of the most consistent comics around." 
Dal Tokyo 
33 Dal Tokyo by Gary Panter "Pretty much anything the most punk cartoonist ever…
Uncle Scrooge 
15 Uncle Scrooge by Carl Barks "His Donald Duck stories are a comedic blast, but his Uncle Scrooge stories are veritable silly symphonies of complicated plotting and intercontinental adventure. Need a master class in how to tell a great comics story? Read any Barks' Scrooge stories from 1950 until his retirement in 1966. It's all there.
Ghost World 
9 Ghost World by Daniel Clowes "You're goddamn right it's the Catcher in the Rye of comics."
The Complete Crumb 
5 The Complete Crumb by R. Crumb "To ignore him completely is only to invite accidentally ripping him off; he's the Bob Dylan of the comics underground, and his work is embedded in the medium's DNA now."  
larn5 Love and Rockets  Love and Rockets 6  
1 Love and Rockets by Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez "Imagine the Clash or R.E.M. or Run-DMC not only never broke up, but, for 30 years, never once released a less-than-excellent record. Imagine their command of their craft just became more pronounced year after year, earning the unshakable admiration of their fans and peers. Imagine they made the best record of their career, 30 years on, this decade. This is essentially what Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez have done with Love and Rockets, the greatest American comic book series of all time."

Non Sequitur 
Non Sequitur: Abstraction in Contemporary Sequential Art

February 28 - March 26, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb. 28, 7-10pm

Special Event: Sequential S'mores - Progressive Art Opening  - with Sequential Artist's Workshop and F.L.A. Gallery, Friday, Feb. 28, 6pm - 12am (click link for more info) 

Gallery Protocol is pleased to announce Non Sequitur: Abstraction in Contemporary Sequential Art, an exhibition of comic and sequential art from artists Pat Aulisio, Derek Ballard, Josh Bayer, Erin Curry, CF, Hellen Jo, Aidan Koch, Emma Louthan, Molly Colleen O'Connell, Gary Panter, Raymond Pettibon, Ron Rege Jr, Frank Santoro, Dash Shaw, and Angie Wang. Collectively, these artists represent the past, present, and future of underground and independent comics - beginning with its origins in the punk and zine movements of southern California in the late 70's, all the way through to its dispersal as a nationwide (and international) subculture today.

As the show's title suggests, the exhibition focuses particularly on how these artists incorporate notions or elements of abstraction within their work. Comics are uniquely positioned to engage with abstraction from both a narrative, linguistic (semiotic), and visual perspective. In that sense, they combine the abstraction of the novelist, the poet, and the painter all into one. Beginning with the assertion that all systems of representation are abstract, the exhibition examines the results of this conflation and how these different threads of abstraction compound, complicate, temper, or derail one another as they operate side by side within the confines of a single undertaking. The exhibition features original and preparatory works in a range of media as well as published comics in a variety of printed formats.  

Curated by Tom Hart of the Sequential Artist's Workshop, Jeff Owens, and Chase Westfall.

The Blighted Eye: Original Comic Art from the Glenn Bray Collection - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Will ElderS Clay WilsonRobert Crumbpreviewsnew releasesJaime HernandezGlenn BrayGary PanterDaniel ClowesChris WareCarl BarksBasil Wolverton 30 Jan 2014 12:27 PM

"Glenn's fabulous collection and the stories that go with it is the kinda stuff you can't make up." – Jaime Hernandez

"The Bray Collection is a national treasure, a Fort Knox of astounding pop-culture holdings compiled with uncanny prescience and a singular, infallible eye for both the unassailably great and the otherwise overlooked. Bray and Zwalve have assembled a sum that is possibly greater even than its magnificent parts, and to experience the body of work in its entirety — finding connections, noting omissions, succumbing to the perfection of the vision — is to understand the visual world in a whole new way." – Daniel Clowes

"Glenn Bray is the Great Curator of brilliant, overlooked pop culture, and this wild book is an eye-popping art treasure for us all." – Matt Groening

We're halfway there! New Blighted Eye prints & more
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Robert WilliamsKim DeitchKickstarterJustin GreenGlenn BrayGary PanterDon RosaDisney 20 Nov 2013 2:28 PM

We've hit the halfway mark in the month of our Kickstarter campaign. To celebrate comics, and hitting our goal, we're offering a quartet of signed, limited-edition prints featuring artwork from our upcoming book The Blighted Eye. (You can also just get the book, signed by Glenn Bray.)

We also have the iconic cover of one of the seminal 1972 autobiographical underground comics: Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary as a $150 print. Scanned from the original black and white art and signed by cartoonist Justin Green.

Also from The Blighted Eye is a six-panel painted comic strip titled “Henry Webb” (1992), starring Gary Panter’s every-idiot; a stand-alone painting and of course, signed for $150

Panter print

Also from The Blighted Eye and $150Kim Deitch's “Hell.” A giclee print from a 25” x 18 ½” ink & watercolor masterpiece, 1985. 

Deitch print

And the estimable Robert Williams also has a print. Entitled “Gaudi,” celebration of the architect Antonio Gaudi, originally published in Gothic Blimp Works, 1970. Signed by the artist for $175.

Wms. print

Don Rosa has been nice enough offer color headshot sketches and dedications inside the Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of the Sun. At $500, this is a steal given how much his drawings go for. You choose the character and expression but we all know that hot-tempered and at-the-end-of-their-ropes make the best duck drawings.

Thank your for your continued support and nagging your friends to contribute to our campaign. 

AAIEEE! Art Exhibit at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Lilli CarréGary PanterChris Wareart shows 22 Oct 2013 4:09 PM

"AAIEEE!!!!!!"

...is just what you'll say when you check out this latest art exhibit at the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin!

The AAIEEE! exhibition transcends the comic book of times past and reiterates how potent imagery can be. It presents works by emerging and established comic book artists like our own Lilli Carré (whose work is shown above) and Gary Panter, alongside Chris Ware, Souther Salazar, Karl Wirsum and the Chicago collective, Trubble Club. AAIEEE! is part of The Open Eye, a collection of shows around Ray Yoshida's work, collections, and influence.

AAIEEE! runs through February 16, 2014. The Kohler Arts Center is located at 608 New York Avenue in Sheboygan, situated along Interstate 43 in east central Wisconsin.

Sweet Halloween Treats!
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Wally WoodThomas OttSteve DitkoRichard SalaJosh SimmonsJoe KubertJasonHans RickheitGary PanterGahan WilsonDaniel ClowesCharles BurnsBill SchellyBen Catmull 21 Oct 2013 2:10 PM

With Halloween looming, allow me to suggest thirteen frightening favorites from Fantagraphics Books. Spooky fun for everyone, in no particular order.

Ghost_World Peculia Big_Baby

Daniel Clowes' modern masterpiece Ghost World eerily conveys the otherworldly cool of 1990s counterculture. Peculia, by Clowes colleague Richard Sala, collects the misadventures of the precocious protagonist of his Evil Eye comic book serial. Northwest native Charles Burns' essential Big Baby anthology of contemporary horror comix includes classics like "Blood Club," "Teen Plague," and "Curse of the Molemen."

Mysterious_Traveler Weird_Horrors Came_the_Dawn

Mysterious Traveler collects proto-psychedelic horror from Steve Ditko's Charlton era. Similarly, Weird Horrors displays the late, great Joe Kubert's pre-Code classics edited by Kubert scholar Bill Schelly. Wally Wood weighs in with Came the Dawn, featuring timeless tales from the "Vault of Horror," as well as mid-century socio-political nightmares like "The Guilty."

Ghosts_and_Ruins The_Furry_Trap

Ghosts and Ruins is a Ben Catmull collection of exquisite depictions and descriptions of haunted dwellings. Read it with Josh Simmons' disturbing anthology The Furry Trap. Other favorites include Folly by Hans Rickheit, Isle of 100,000 Graves by Jason, Thomas Ott's wordless wonder Cinema Panopticum, Jimbo's Inferno by the great Gary Panter, and finally, from the master of macabre, Gahan Wilson: 50 Years of Playboy Cartoons. Boo!

Holy yes-more-please, SPX rocked us. Jacq Cohen, Gary Groth and I traversed across the country for one of the single best comic books shows that exists.
