ISBN: 978-1-60699-582-2

"any work by the great Jacques Tardi is always worth waiting for…and in my opinion every decent graphic novel collection needs some Tardi in it, he is one of the great masters of the medium, from fantastic adventures (Adele Blanc-Sec) to hard boiled crime (adapting Manchette's prose) to seething, searing indictments of warfare." –Forbidden Planet International

Lost Cat
by Jason; translated by Kim Thompson

160-page two-color 6" x 8.75" hardcover • $24.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-642-3

"A commentary on longing and isolation with a twist that should seem out of place yet somehow works perfectly, Lost Cat isn't just my favorite comic of 2013 so far, but it's now my favorite work by one of the greatest cartoonist working in comics today." –Joe Hughes, Comics Alliance

Katherine Whaley

The Amazing, Enlightening and Absolutely True Adventures of Katherine Whaley
by Kim Deitch

176-page black & white 11.25" x 7.5" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-631-7

"It's as handsome a book as he's made." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

"a tall tale from the great Kim Deitch, working again in the landscape format…to lash together early cinema, excellent animals and the Voice of Jesus Christ into a very characteristic…whole" –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

by Leslie Stein

144- page black & white 8" x 11.5" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-672-0

"Stein is a very intriguing cartoonist given over to work that's specifically and idiosyncratically taken with elements of human character and relationships. There's a great deal that's visually appealing about her chosen style, too." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

"What Leslie does with her work is special. She seems largely influenced by newspaper comics, but her stories are subtle." –Nick Gazin, VICE

"Leslie Stein, one of the most widely-admired young artists you’ll find today." –Joe McCulloch

New School 

New School 
by Dash Shaw

340-page full-color 8.75" x 11.25" hardcover • $39.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-644-7

"Instead of a tidy narrative, [New School] is about art, about the art that's in the book itself...There's stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the leve of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say....This book is just fascinating." –Glen Weldon, NPR

"The experience of reading New School is like temporarily inhabiting the body and brain of an artist: This is what growing up might feel like for someone who lives and breathes colors and shapes. It's heady, hallucinatory, and bizarre, but it's grounded in the simple experience of growing up in the shadow of a beloved older sibling." -Allison Hallett, Portland Mercury 

The Dingburg Diaries 

Zippy: The Dingburg Diaries 
by Bill Griffith

232-page black & white/color 8" x 10" softcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-641-6

"He's about the only guy in America who's doing a readable, interesting daily comic strip for daily newspapers. He' s the only one left, as far as I know. I don't know of any others." -R. Crumb
 
"If you're already a fan, you'll love this new collection. If you're not afraid to dip into Zippy's unique style of humor, philosophy and social critique, this book may make you a fan." - S.C. Ringgenberg, Heavy Metal

Barnaby Vol. 1 
Edited by Eric Reynolds & Philip Nel; Introduction by Chris Ware; art direction by Daniel Clowes  

320-page black & white (with some color) 11"x 6.75" hardcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-522-8 

"Johnson combined low-impact serialized adventure with some gentle comedy based around the ways that adults and kids diverge in their perspectives. The result is a compulsively readable strip with a winningly off-kilter point-of-view-and a cultural treasure that's been long-overdue for this kind of prestige archival project... " –Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

"Fantagraphics deserves a Nobel Prize in Literature for their efforts to reprint complete runs of classic American comic strips... There is rarely an attempt at more than 2-dimensions but that flatness provides a late art deco elegance to [Barnaby]....This strip is fun, funny, I'm so glad its back and Fantagraphics is giving it their usual top-notch presentation," –Kevin Lauderdale, It Has Come To My Attention

80-page two-color (with 16pp. full color) 7.25" x 10.5" hardcover • $19.99 ISBN: 978-1-60699-635-5

"these pages come from such a raw emotional place that they'll reverberate like an echo from a well.…It's a message we've heard before, but its majestic delivery and the difficult path that led to this revelation make The End all the more exceptional." –About.com

 

Wake Up, Percy Gloom

Wake Up, Percy Gloom!
by Cathy Malkasian

192-page two-color 8.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-638-6 - See more at: http://www.fantagraphics.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&category=Cathy+Malkasian&Itemid=113#sthash.ppFUnjvP.dpuf

192-page two-color 8.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-638-6

"Malkasian fills the story with multiple levels, never once making any of them obvious. Her experience as an animator shines through as her pencil and panel construction holds an incredible sense of movement inside a graphic novel format.…More than a fable, Percy Gloom is part of story telling myth that can be traced back to campfires around a cave. This is an inspiring work that speaks to all levels of our existence." - See more at: http://www.fantagraphics.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&category=Cathy+Malkasian&Itemid=113#sthash.HrwSRbVp.dpuf

Good Dog

Good Dog by Graham Chaffee

96-page black & white 8.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $16.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-653-9

"hardcover parable for all ages (CONTAINS LIGHT CUSSING), concerning a stray dog who navigates the concept of - yes - goodness" –Joe McCulloch, The Comics Journal

"I got choked up a couple of times which is the one of the best things a comic can do to me. Compliments to Mr. Graham Chaffee. Really solid storytelling and excellent art. Reminiscent the best way of Jack London's The Call of the Wild." – Farel Dalrymple (Pop Gun War)

Cat on a Hot Thin Groove

The Cat on a Hot Thin Groove (Softcover Ed.)
by Gene Deitch

168-page full-color 11.75" x 9.25" softcover • $35.00
ISBN: 978-1-60699-617-1

"Deitch achieves what only the greatest cartoonist can — a deep spiritual resonance with minimal representation. The Deitch covers are thrilling for their quiet beauty. [...] This is a terrific rediscovery of a forgotten giant of a small world." – New York Press 

"In the spirit of cats & dogs living together, Fanta also has a new softcover edition of The Cat on a Hot Thin Groove, a 2003 compilation of Gene Deitch's mid-century covers and cartoons for Record Changer magazine; $35.00. Hipsters!" -Joe McCulloch, The Comics Reporter

Wandering Son 4

Wandering Son (放浪息子 / Hourou Musuko) Vol. 4
by Shimura Takako; edited and translated by Matt Thorn

224-page black & white 7" x 9.5" hardcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-605-8

"Wandering Son is not the kind of manga in which a happy ending is guaranteed… You'll thus be grateful for the moments of realistic, untempered joy Shimura allows her two protagonists here, as you wait with nervous anticipations for the travails that lie ahead for them…" –Glen Weldon, NPR

Praise for the Series:

One of ALA/YALSA's Top Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens 2012

Named to the ALA GLBT Round Table's 2012 Rainbow List of recommended books for young readers

One of MTV Geek's Best Manga Series of 2011

Old Castle's Secret

Walt Disney's Donald Duck: The Old Castle's Secret (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 6)
by Carl Barks

232-page full-color 7.5" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-653-9

"Barks, the artist, is a master cartoonist, drawing lively, expressive characters with a graceful sense of movement. His beautiful, detailed backgrounds plant the ducks in a fully realized world that adds weight to his storytelling.... But besides the entertaining plots, Barks' appeal is in his characters. He gives his ducks many human frailties and while they usually try to do the right thing, they make mistakes, get angry, frustrated, and even fail." - Rich Clabaugh, The Christian Science Monitor

3 New Stories

3 New Stories
by Dash Shaw

32 page full color 6.5" x 10.25" comic • $3.99

"3 New Stories is a fascinating work, a book knocked me back on my heels with its tremendous inventiveness, playfulness and intriguing approach to the comics page." –Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

Peter Bagge's Other Stuff

Peter Bagge's Other Stuff
by Peter Bagge et al.

144-page color/black & white 7.25" x 10.25" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-622-5

"While this is an odds-and-ends compilation of a number of the creator of Hate's shorter works, it is by no means a "b-sides and outtakes" collection." –Benn Ray, Atomic Books

Castle Waiting Vol. 2

Castle Waiting Vol. 2: Definitive Edition
by Linda Medley

472-page black & white 5.75" x 8.25" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-633-1

"Castle Waiting creates a vibrant fantasy world not unlike The Lord of the Rings' Middle-earth but with a focus on the lives of women.... Fun to read and look at, Castle Waiting will enthrall fantasy readers of both genders." – Time

Complete Crumb 5: Happy Hippy

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 5: Happy Hippy Comix
by Robert Crumb

144 page black & white with color 8/5" x 11" softcover • $19.99
ISBN: 978-0-930193-92-8

"Fantagraphics' Crumb project advances into wilder, woolier, scarier, more fantastic, and lewder and still lewder territory in [Volume 5]... This is definitely X-rated material — make that triple-X! — but it's brilliant, scabrously hilarious, absolutely basic to understanding the 1960s American counterculture, and authentically mind-blowing." – Booklist

50 Girls 50

50 Girls 50 and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)
illustrated by Al Williamson et al.; written by Al Feldstein et al.

264-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-577-8

"these comics still matter, at least to hardcore fans. I think they look great, and I enjoy these comics for what they are as opposed to how they were seen in the miserable context of 1950s mainstream comic books. I'd buy the Williamson before the Davis, but I think most people I know prefer the Davis." –Tom Spurgeon, Comics Reporter

"Al Williamson's classic tales from Weird Science and Weird Fantasy which stand as landmarks in comics sci-fi/fantasy." –Benn Ray, Atomic Books

"The great Al Williamson is one of my all-time favorite artists…Unlike the cookie-cutter plots of the EC horror stories, 50 Girls 50 contains  original ’50s style Sci-Fi stories including three tales adapted from the works of SF Greats Ray Bradbury and Harlan Ellison. And like the great Mr. Loomis mentioned above, Al Williamson is a master at capturing the female form in all its glory times 50!" –Andy Mansell, HeroesOnline

'Tain't the Meat

'Tain't the Meat... It's the Humanity! and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)
by Jack DavisAl Feldstein

224-page black & white 7.25" x 10.25" hardcover • $28.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-578-5

"…this edition is an ideal place to get the true feel of the 1950′s EC Horror comics. These horror stories are rather formulaic, but the art of Jack Davis makes them essential.  But that taint all…" –Andy Mansell, HeroesOnline

"Fantagraphics continues its excellent series of EC Comics Library editions with two new books. 'Tain't The Meat collects some of Jack Davis's Tales from The Crypt stories which highlight his masterful balance of gore, humor and terror." –Benn Ray, Atomic Books
