Tijuana Terrorist
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under misc 30 Sep 2008 1:47 PM

Greg Zura, sales manager for a decade here at Fantagraphics, you forgot some of your stuff when you quit to pursue writing*. We found this Tijuana Bible portrait of Osama Bin Luba behind your desk.

Joe Cool
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 22 Sep 2008 11:43 AM

Me on Halloween circa 1986 at the comic book store I worked at in Fountain Valley, CA. Because nothing screams cool like trying to look like a badass in front of a wall of X-Men back issues and a Hulk poster. 

Please Vote Obama
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 18 Sep 2008 7:34 PM

  

My old pal Joe Newton, cartoonist and former Gas Huffer drummer and Stranger art director, just released this new print through Etsy that he and Davin Kuntze created. 

100% of the $20 sale price goes to support the Obama campaign. This is a limited edition letterpress poster, created with 100+ year old woodtype and custom-cast metal type. A real collector's item. The numbered edition is limited to 100 copies, and is printed with oil-based inks on high-quality, heavyweight paper.

Meanwhile, longtime comics editor Pete Friedrich just sent out this image (along with this link):

It should come as no surprise that Fantagraphics is an Obama stronghold.

Jefferson Machamer
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under misc 17 Sep 2008 1:45 PM
Coming in March, another of our Pin-Up paperbacks. This time we're collecting various cartoonists who worked for the Humorama mens' magazines of old, giving an overview of styles and content.

Machamer1.jpg

Jefferson Machamer is a stand-out in these old pulps. His work looked like nobody else's. The women are decidedly manish and the poses stiff so it's odd that he did pin-up work. I was unfamiliar with Machamer when I was first flipping through the Humorama digests and I couldn't get my head around this guy who seemed, at times, to be drawing Jimbo in drag. (Gary Panter has called him an influence.) Above is what I think must be a later piece, where the forms seem more natural. This one shows well what he did brilliantly: Look at those attacking lines just cutting out the forms. Every drawing screams with the artist's energy.

Gary Leib's Wall St.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 15 Sep 2008 8:51 AM

  

Go watch: The second episode of Concrete Jumble, a series of animations about the history of New York City, by Gary Leib. This one's about the history of Wall St. -- well timed, Leib! After the last 24 hours, this might end up being a requiem for Wall St., too.
