Come one, come all to the NYC art opening to celebrate the James Romberger and Rick Prol's show this October 16th. The reception will take place at the Dorian Grey Gallery on 9th Street (near Ave A.) from 6pm 'til 9pm. If you enjoyed Romberger's Fantagraphics graphic novel 7 Miles a Second or Post York from Uncivilized Books, this is the place to be!
The show will run from October 16h-November 17, 2013 and the gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-7pm.
Dorian Grey Gallery
What began at a house party in the Bronx has swelled into an international cultural movement influencing our music, fashion, advertising and collective identity. Forty years after the birth of hip-hop, industry voices gather around the mic to deconstruct how it impacts us all- whether you know it or not.
Ed will gather around the mic with Reggie Osse (Combat Jack Show), Mark Anthony Neal (Duke University), Tricia Rose (Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America), hip hop artist Brother Ali, and dance group FootworKINGz! This panel is not to be missed! Get yourself pumped by checking out a preview of Ed's book, Hip Hop Family Tree.
Tickets are $15, available on the website and well worth it.
And I'm just gotta throw in this video from FootworKINGz back when they were on America's Best Dance Crew (which more than a few Fanta employees like to watch...). If you can get through Mario Lopez, it's worth it because they show off a few Chicago-centric dance styles before the big number (how did they not get further in the competition?).

Great news for Linda Medley fans: after taking a break, she's back to the drawing board sketching out storyboards for Castle Waiting Volume 3! Publishing details are still to be determined so we don't know quite yet in what format it will be available to readers, but we sure are excited! In the meantime, to limber up, she's dug up an unfinished project from 2003 to work on: a spin-off of Castle Waiting aimed at younger readers called "Twelve Witches," which you can see as a work in progress on our Tumblr blog. Hopefully we'll be seeing more of that in the near future!
This September 26th enjoy an "Evening of Literary Mayhem & Music" in New York starring Danny Bland, celebrating his new novel In Case We Die and Mike Edison, author of "I Have Fun Everywhere I Go" and "Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!"
The night couldn't be complete without featuring the World's Greatest Piano Player, Mickey Finn. And special guest DJ Eric Davidson will be spinning punk rock favorites and more! "Where is this?" screams everyone at once---creating such a deafening noise we wonder if you can possibly still attend because your ear drums erupted and, ew, it's kinda bleeding all over--It's at MANITOBAS! We'll see you there.

IFP Filmmaker Conference - Inspiration, Action, Community!
Sept. 15-19, 2013, Lincoln Center, New York City
Guess what? Your favorite cartoonist-cum-animator Dash Shaw will be appearing at the Filmmaker Conference the week after SPX. Here are the details, friends!
Whatever form your story takes, IFP's Filmmaker Conference showcases how great projects can connect with audiences and stand out in a crowded marketplace.

For a more hands-on experience, the Conference also offers Live Pitch Workshops, submit your pitch today for a chance to get feedback from industry pros on how to make it more impactful - plus games presented with Upright Citizens Brigade and Meet the Decision Makers, cinematography workshop with Kodak, and small group meetings with tastemakers who can further your project! And new this year, #ArtistServices NYC presented by Sundance Institute, fierce conversations around the latest technology and trends in independent filmmaking.
Peter Bagge pays tribute to "the World's Greatest Comics Publishers" (ahem, us) on the cover of last week's Seattle Weekly, where you can also find a "Fantagraphics 101" style profile in advance to our big hoo-hah at Bumbershoot. We're a little tardy posting this (our pals at D&Q even scooped us) because, well, that last panel has the resounding ring of truth.
Maakies and Sock Monkey cartonist, Tony Millionaire, continues to be funnier than you on paper, in person and on film. This weekend Funny or Die released the video The Edge of Alligiance featuring Millionaire as George Washington on Mount Rushmore. If this made you spit out your cuppa joe, check out the older Fun With God where Millionaire plays who else but God? Keep your eyes peeled for our San Diego announcements so you know when Tony Millionaire will be signing books at our booth!
Well, baseball and softball season in the city leagues of Seattle started recently and we couldn't help but draw a little inspiration from the man who helped elevate baseball to its on-high status, Willard Mullin. The Golden Age of Baseball Drawings 1934-1972 collects for the first time Mullin's best drawings devoted to baseball — depictions of players like Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Yogi Berra and the story of Mullin creating the Brooklyn Bum, the bedraggled mascot of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Whether you're in the dugout...
Out ready to turn a play in the infield...
Or catching fly balls in the outfield... (see me, I'm that little green and pink-banged blob on the right)
…this hardcover book is full of great baseball gags and political comics from a time when the nation needed something to keep up their moral. Our team, Scared Hitless, even decided to get uniforms to match the beautiful book jacket (or did Jacob Covey design it to match us?).
See you at the next game with some more previews of the Willard Mullin's Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972. For Seattle people, we play at the Cal Anderson park on Monday nights, 8pm. Come on by and check out this advance!
First baseman Matt enjoyed this Babe Ruth comic. Thanks to Hugo Garcia for photo help!
