Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Mary Fleener
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specialsmary fleener 8 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's installment features Mary Fleener, a true grande dame of the underground/alternative comix movement!

Life of the Party by Mary Fleener

Life of the Party

The ultimate collection of Mary Fleener's groundbreaking Drawn & Quarterly series Slutburger in book form! Mary recounts tales of rock n' roll, southern California life, strange phantasms, and more in the pages of Life of the Party. Fleener's trademark neo-cubist cartooning ("cubismo") and her unique perspective on life in Southern California, from hippie art student, to gigging musician on the lesbian bar circuit, to surfer, make Life of the Party a striking and singular comic experience. Included here are such stories as "Turn Off That Jungle Music," "The Jelly," "Hush Yuppies," "Ashes of Passion," "Tales from the Pink Coffin," and many others. With Slutburger, hordes of fans joined the Fleener conga line — Life of the Party is the perfect place to get on the good foot!

Booklist looks back at '07
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Roberta Gregorymary fleenerLinda MedleyJessica AbelDrew FriedmanDebbie DrechslerCarol TylerAline Kominsky-Crumb 21 Mar 2008 11:01 AM

If you're not a bookseller or librarian, skip this post, but the new issue of Booklist is the annual spotlight on graphic fiction, and there's some very useful stuff for those building a core collection of GNs. The issue includes an interview with James Sturm, an "honor roll of female pioneers" in comics, and a look back at a lifetime reading "the Funnies" courtesy columnist Michael Cart. There are a number of top 10 lists, reviews, etc. as well. 

One thing that was particularly gratifying to see was the "Core Collection: Graphic Women" list. Of the 13 books on the list, Fantagraphics published five (including books by Linda Medley, Mary Fleener, Roberta Gregory, Aline Kominsky-Crumb and Carol Tyler). A sixth, La Perdida, was originally published by Fanta in serial form. A seventh, Persepolis, we almost published (long story). An eighth, Summer of Love, was by Debbie Drechsler, whose equally great Daddy's Girl is being republished by Fanta this month. So that was kind of a cool list to see.

Meanwhile, congrats also to Drew Friedman, whose The Fun Never Stops! was named one of the top 10 comics collections/graphic novels of 2007 by Booklist.
