"[Editor Jacques Boyreau] has a knack for picking images; much like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart and hardcore porn, Boyreau knows it when he sees it. And luckily, he shares it, this time from the visual-presentation experts of Fantagraphics Books — a match made in poster-art heaven." – Bookgasm
"Makes Antonin Artaud look like a picture of mental health." – Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Derrida Reframed: A Guide for the Visual Arts Student
Now available for the first time in paperback, Wilfred Santiago’s instant classic 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente is a human drama of courage, faith, and dignity, inspired by the life of the acclaimed Pittsburgh Pirates baseball star who died too young. 21 chronicles Clemente's life from his early days growing up, through the highlights of his career, capturing the grit of his rise from an impoverished Puerto Rican childhood to the majesty of his performance on the field, and to his fundamental decency off of it. Santiago's inviting style combines realistic attention to detail and expressive cartooning to great effect.

In "Donald Duck and the Ghost of the Grotto," Donald and his nephews try to harvest kelp at Skull-Eye Reef in the West Indies but are soon menaced by a ducknapping ghost in armor who is determined to carry out a centuries-old curse and a giant octopus who — well, what do you think giant octopuses do?

"Great howling crashwagons!" The Richest Duck in the World is back — and so are noisy nephew Donald, wunderkinder Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and rascally richnik Flintheart Glomgold! Because you asked for it, we're proud to present our first complete, chronological book of Duck adventures by contemporary fan favorite Don Rosa — following in the footsteps of Disney legend Carl Barks with an exciting, lovingly detailed visual style all his own! Rosa, among the world's most beloved modern cartoonists, launched his Barksian career in 1987. Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns! Presented with sparkling color and "extras," these Duckburg epics are getting a definitive, comprehensive North American edition for the very first time — at a price even Scrooge would consider a bargain!
Acclaimed cartoonist Lucy Knisley (French Milk, Relish) got an opportunity that most only dream of: a travel-expenses-paid trip to Europe and Scandinavia, thanks to a book tour. An Age of License is Knisley's comics travel memoir recounting her charming (and romantic!) adventures. It’s punctuated by whimsical visual devices (such as a "new experiences" funnel); peppered with the cute cats she meets along the way; and, of course, features her hallmark — drawings and descriptions of food that will make your mouth water. But it’s not all kittens and raclette crêpes: Knisley's experiences are colored by anxieties, introspective self-inquiries, and quotidian revelations — about traveling alone in unfamiliar countries, and about her life and career — that many young adults will relate to. An Age of License — which takes its name from a French saying — is an Eat, Pray, Love for the alternative comics fan.
Sometimes getting together with friends and family for Thanksgiving isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, as Snoopy learns when his brother Spike invites him to spend Thanksgiving in the desert, and things don’t quite work out as planned. At least it’s a change of pace for Snoopy, who spends most Thanksgivings with the ol’ supper dish (and one lonely one at the malt shoppe as Joe Cool). It’s also a tense time of year to be a bird who’s afraid of being mistaken for a turkey and roasted, and Woodstock copes with his anxieties in various ways, including by donning a disguise with Snoopy’s help. Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Franklin all get sick over their Thanksgiving vacation. Snoopy’s Thanksgiving is the perfect gift book for anyone whose idea of the holiday is more Charlie Brown than Norman Rockwell.
"Dash Shaw, it’s fair to say, is something of a genius." –Chris Ware
Praise for Shaw’s previous book
“New School is about art, about the art that’s in the book itself…There’s stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the level of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say…This book is just fascinating…[A] masterful, gorgeous and defiantly odd work that demands close attention—and richly rewards it.” –NPR’s “Best Books of 2013”
"[Tim Lane] makes illustrations in that Brylcreem-soaked, hard-boiled, noir style with heavy hatching circa R. Crumb." – Juxtapoz
"Lane’s beautifully crafted pen-and-ink drawing combines a master artist’s eye for detail with a predilection for the grotesque to produce a superb blending of unforgettable images and poignant meditation on life’s tragic undercurrents." – Booklist
"…[Tim Lane is] a major new voice on the American literary landscape, with or without the illustrations." – Print
