I like to play cards, so I was stoked to get this set from our pals at The Stranger. It instantly vaults past the nudie deck as my favorite. Each card features a classic cover from Strangers past, and they've had some great ones, including a bunch by Fantagraphics-published cartoonists like Jim Blanchard (who is featured on three cards, I think more than anyone), Ellen Forney, Jeremy Eaton, Charles Burns (colored by yours truly, coincidentally), and Tony Millionaire. I have no idea how to get this or if it's even for sale, so good luck. And neener-neener.
The Drinky Crow Show pilot is re-running on Jan. 1 at 11:15pm on the Cartoon Network. Not New Year's Eve but the night after. If you missed it the first time around, don't let that happen again, it's a riot. And looks so much better on the boob tube than the clips you've possibly seen on YouTube. Help us boost those ratings and ensure that the CN orders a slew of new episodes for 2008!
In the meantime, Drinky Crow Christmas!
Need some last-minute stocking stuffers? We're here to help. Here's a selection of our tiniest books; there's something for everyone, and they're all affordably priced! (Plus they're all hardcovers, so they won't get bent out of shape if you cram them down into the toe and then pile a bunch of clementines on top.)
And hey, how about a sweet little deal: order all 3 for just $25 (that's $2.95 off the combined cover prices) from now until Christmas. (Note: If you order off the website, the discount won't be reflected in your shopping cart/order confirmation; please state the offer in the comments section and we'll process your order to include the discount. You can also call in your order to 1-800-657-1100.)
Muzzlers, Guzzlers and Good Yeggs
By Joe Coleman
Collects the best of Coleman's tales of true crime and cultural antiheroes, starring an opium-addicted con man, a hobo prostitute, a serial killer/rapist, the Boston Strangler, and institutions that perpetuate human suffering. Ho ho ho!
168-page 4" x 5.25" hardcover $13.00
The Last Lonely Saturday
By Jordan Crane
Largely wordless and cunningly rendered, this little book is sure to touch most folks. An old widower visits his departed wife's gravesite. Little does he know that what the day holds for him will result in this being his last lonely Saturday. Both sweet and bitter, realistic and fantasic, this heartwarming story of love and love lost is told in a beautiful two-color, red and yellow palette.
80-page 4" x 6.25" hardcover $8.00
Mighty Mite the Ear Mite
By Tony Millionaire
This charming, clever little book contains two simultaneous stories: in one, a wandering ear mite searches for a home; in the other, a lonely ape escapes from the circus. The two stories intersect for a "happy" ending. Suitable for all ages!
32-page 4.5" x 4" hardcover $6.95
Texans can buy Tony Millionaire a drink or have him sign your books this Saturday, December 1st, from 3 to 6 pm. (Austin Books & Comics, 5002 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78751.) And, yes, his Drinky Crow Show is in the works with new characters being developed and churned out of the Transylvanian Animation Factory as I type.
The insurance company was a bit put off by the condition of the offices here at Fantagraphics so we've been cleaning up. In the process this placemat sketch from R. Crumb was discovered. I've included a detail of, yes, Robert Crumb's drawing of a Pokemon (presumably one in the possession of Gary's son, Conrad).
