A long time ago, a devious late-night pact altered the destiny of small community, its inhabitants forever cursed to live as mere clay in the hands of the capricious Mister O’Blique and the Wicked Barons. But is change finally afoot? Professor Hackensack journeys to the town in order to wrest from the Barons the secret of their power. He will be helped (or hindered) on this quest by Inspector Demifayce, Lady Puzzle, the Encephapolyp, the Taxmen and other players in the complex, not always human mosaic that forms the strange and twisted architecture of the Cryptic City. Find out why this surreal masterpiece from Sergio Ponchione was the sleeper hit of the 2008 Comic-Con!
WHERE IS DELPHINE?!? Where can she be, this lovely object of our nameless traveler’s affection — or, perhaps, obsession? Since stepping off the train into Delphine’s hometown — surrounded on all sides by a deep black forest — the traveler has found nothing but trouble. It seems the townsfolk aren’t satisfied with simply being unhelpful — they are openly hostile and may even, for reasons he can’t understand, want to kill him. Perhaps our poor prince charming was hoping for a fairy tale romance, in which case, although he did get the fairy tale, along with its witches and wicked stepmothers and haunted forests and evil spells, he may find that not all fairy tales end with "happily ever after." In this penultimate issue of the four-part series, our traveler makes a startling discovery and faces a new horror that drives him to the brink of absolute madness.
This week's free preview is actually 3 previews! We're bringing you 4-to-5-page excerpts from three upcoming installments in our Ignatz Series: Baobab #3, Delphine #3 (pictured above), and Grotesque #2. These previews are exclusive to registered Fantagraphics.com users, so sign up and/or sign in to view.
(As a reminder, 20/20 Club members receive these previews two weeks before we post them on the website, just one of many great reasons to join up...)
We'll be revealing video and photo previews of a half-dozen of our upcoming releases over the next few days. First up, the next two entries in our Ignatz Series: Delphine #3 by Richard Sala and Grotesque #2 by Sergio Ponchione. Spine-tinglers both! Watch the videos above and take a closer look in our two photo galleries: Delphine, Grotesque.
It's Free Comic Book Day tomorrow, so head on down to your participating local comic shop (especially if it's the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery) and pick up a copy of our offering, I.G.N.A.T.Z. ("International Graphic Novels At Their Zenith")! This 32-pager contains exclusive, never-before-seen excerpts from upcoming installments in our premium Ignatz Series, plus a couple of other goodies, including Babel #3 by David B., Baobab #3 by Igort, Grotesque #2 by Sergio Ponchione, Sammy the Mouse #2 by Zak Sally, Niger #3 by Leila Marzocchi, Interiorae #3 by Gabriella Giandelli, Delphine #3 by Richard Sala, and Ganges #2 by Kevin Huizenga (who also provides a new cover ilustration), plus a gallery of unseen sketches from Reflections by Marco Corona!
To answer the inevitable question: this comic book is ONLY available at participating comic book stores; plans to make additional copies available via our website or otherwise are To Be Determined (and will not be influenced by begging -- we know how badly you want one). Future plans, if any, will be announced here on Flog, so stay tuned.
Everyman Glenn Ganges ruminates on the simple times of the dot-com era when the reality of business was propped up by the unreality of addictive technology and hope. Kevin Huizenga cleverly parallels that unreality with the unreality of addictive networked first-person shooter video games, and the attempts of people around him to genuinely connect with each other. Huizenga’s elegant neo-clear-line style brings a crispness and humor to these low-key slice-of-life stories, and the gray-blue duotone he has picked gives the art a new depth and complexity.

By Matt Broersma
In the conclusion to Matt Broersma's noir triptych... Miles Anderson lives in a safe, predictable world defined by his job as an L.A. television producer, his affairs with girls from the office and the shopping trips of his beautiful wife, Elena. Then, one evening, Elena disappears. Is she off on another trip? With a man? In mortal danger? As the days pass, and the suspense mounts, Miles Anderson's search for answers leads him instead deeper and deeper into an abyss of mystery, until at last he's forced to confront the unthinkable...

One of the great privileges of working at Fantagraphics is the opportunity to see original artwork for upcoming releases. Case in point: this gorgeous painted cover by Richard Sala for Delphine #3 (release date TBD), which my crappy cameraphone did absolutely no favors to (and turned purple for some reason).
New Tales of Old Palomar #3
by Gilbert Hernandez
The third and last installment of New Tales of Old Palomar, in which Gilbert Hernandez returns to some of his best-loved characters, focuses on the gorgeous but troubled Tonantzín. Everybody in Palomar seems to take the supernatural with a grain of salt, but young Tonantzín is determined to uncover the mystery of the laughing baby that only appears to her, haunting her daily life. What is the baby's link to the giant stone idols that stand outside the small town...?
