Fantagraphics at Emerald City ComiCon 2011
Fantagraphics staffers Eric Buckler, Gavin Lees, and an appearance from head honcho Gary Groth!
 
Thanks to everyone who visited the Fantagraphics booth at the 9th Annual Emerald City Comicon! It was great to see everyone there, and we hope you're enjoying the books you bought from us!
 
We sold out of Prison Pit, Vol. 1 and Werewolves of Montpelier pretty quickly -- which I think is awesome and hilarious for this mostly mainstream show. Is Cannibal Fuckface the next great superhero? Clearly, yes. 
 
 
It was exciting to debut hot-off-the-presses copies of Four Color Fear, Love From the Shadows, Safe Area Gorazde: The Special Edition, and The Last Rose of Summer. And if you were there on Sunday, our great curator Larry Reid was on hand, presenting a sneak peek at our upcoming release Taking Punk to the Masses, out next month! Thanks to Seattlest for the pic above, and for the "comiconversation" with Larry on their site!
 
Fantagraphics at Emerald City ComiCon 2011- Jacques Boyreau
 
We hope you all enjoyed getting your books signed by our artists Peter Bagge and Megan Kelso, and editor Jacques Boyreau, seen above talking "grindhouse" with some ComiCon attendees. Thanks to them for spending time with us at our booth that weekend! 
 
And thanks so much to the Fantagraphics staffers who manned the table. I wanna send out an extra-special thanks to the latest member of the Fantagraphics team, Ian Burns, for working all three days of the con! (Congratulations on the promotion from intern to Customer Service Representative!)
 
And another extra-special thanks goes to The Comics Journal contributor Gavin Lees who was a welcome weekend-long surprise addition to the team, along with his intergalactic-sweetie Heather (who got to meet Shatner!!!).
 
Finally, an additional thanks goes out to our friends at AmericaWare for keeping the good-lookin' staffers of Fantagraphics even more good-lookin' with t-shirts sporting the artwork of Jim Woodring, Jim Blanchard, and (not a Jim) Basil Wolverton. These fantastic tees are available for a limited time only at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, so hurry down there for the best selection!
 
Top Shelf at Emerald City ComiCon - Brett Warnock
 
You can check out more pictures from Emerald City ComiCon on the Fantagraphics Flickr. Above is a pic I snuck of friend Brett Warnock at the Top Shelf Productions booth. Top Shelf were the co-sponsors of our "Con Artists" ECCC After-Party, which was a rockin'-fun time! Photos from the party are also up on Flickr, like the ones seen below!

Northwest residents won't want to miss out on the action after the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle on Saturday, March 5. Captain Kirk, Riker, Data, Crusher... hell — half the crew of the Enterprise will be guests at the convention. After the convention, beam yourself down to the Jewel Box Theater at the Rendezvous for the fabulous "Con Artists" concert. The show is FREE with convention credentials.

The party opens with a solo music set by Matthew Southworth, co-creator of Stumptown (with convention guest Greg Rucka.) Before concentrating on his comics career, Southworth made a splash with the Capillaries. Also on the bill is Peter Bagge's Can You Imagine? Bagge will be at the con on Saturday, and will entertain revelers at the Jewel Box with his pop combo featuring legendary musician and producer Steve Fisk. The festivities conclude with a set by the Rheas, fronted by our dreamy associate publisher Eric Reynolds. The lovely Janice Headley will spin spacey platters, and the Rendezvous, located at 2322 in Seattle's lively Belltown neighborhood, features fantastic food and affordable drinks. 21 and over with ID.

A limited number of advance tickets to the convention are still available at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery at 1201 S. Vale Street. Phone 206.658.0110. See you soon.

Longtime Bagge fans will remember the Buddy Bradley Lookalike Contest from the pages of Hate. This image comes from artist Brian Clarke, a.k.a. Les Toil, who remarks on the Peter Bagge Facebook fan page, "Man, if Peter was responsible for the casting of a real-life Bradleys sitcom, I hope he'd consider this kid for the part."
