See Previews / Order Now

Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe who feels trapped working overtime at a pizza restaurant to support his girlfriend, Nicole, and their infant child. Especially when Nicole invites her troubled mother, Angela, to move into their two-bedroom apartment until she lands on her feet again. Joe reacts to this development by further retreating into alcohol. He thinks he loves Nicole but resents her at the same time. They probably wouldn't still be with each other if she hadn't become pregnant. Joe wants out. He's angry. He's in a position to act rashly. And he does. This sophomore graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver may seem like a left turn from his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel biography of Abraham Lincoln (The Hypo), yet upon closer reflection, it continues Van Sciver’s interest in pathos and the human condition.

Down with OPP*: Youth Is Wasted by Noah Van Sciver

* Other People's Publications
** Yeah, You Know Me.

While we eagerly await the release of Saint Cole next month, Seattleites and travelers can stop by the Fantagraphics Bookstore to pick up Noah Van Sciver's collection Youth Is Wasted, out last year via AdHouse Books!

Youth Is Wasted compiles several short stories from Van Sciver, some that appeared in his self-published comic book series Blammo, and some published elsewhere, like our very own Mome anthology.  Van Sciver's amazing piece 1999 is reprinted here, which first appeared as a mini-comic from Retrofit: I remember reading it on the plane on the way home from a convention back in 2012, and being utterly floored. (No surprise, it was named a "Notable Comic of the Year" in the Best American Comics 2013 anthology.) There are also a few previously unpublished pieces to be found among the pages. Think of it as your Whitman's Samplers of Van Sciver to tide you over 'til you can gorge on Saint Cole.

We've got a few copies left in stock now at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Call Larry: (206) 658-0110.
