January's Book-A-Day Sale: Couch Tag
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specialsJesse Reklaw 4 Jan 2015 5:00 AM
Couch Tag by Jesse Reklaw - Cover

Next up in our January Book-A-Day sale is Jesse Reklaw's first long-form work, the tragicomic graphic memoir Couch Tag.

Presented as a series of comic novellas that together comprise a thoughtful, sometimes dark and often hilarious memoir about childhood, family, death, mental illness, sex and drug use, the entire book is told through cleverly inviting conceits like cat histories and card games.

The graphic novel is told in five parts: In "Thirteen Cats" (featured in The Best American Comics), Reklaw discovers coping mechanisms that mimic his family pets; "Toys I Love" relates the author's pre-pubescent brushes with deviant sexual activity, and the way innocence converges with real sexual trauma; "The Fred Robinson Story" tells the story of Reklaw's period stalking perfect strangers; "The Stacked Deck," in which hereditary influences towards criminal behavior, drug use and depression are explored via card games the author played with his family; and "Lessoned," a family history of mental illness.

Couch Tag is available at 20% off today only!

The End by Anders Nilsen - Cover

Anders Nilsen's The End is a collection of short strips about loss, death, paralysis, and transformation. It is a concept album in different styles, a meditation on paying attention, an abstracted autobiography and a travelogue, reflecting the progress of his struggle to reconcile the great upheaval of a death, and finding a new life on the other side.

Happy Boxing Day! Our Fantabucks Sale is BACK!
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specials 26 Dec 2014 12:00 AM

Fantabucks 2-for-1 Sale!

Time for a last hurrah for 2014! This has been a very good year for Fantagraphics. Over the past 12 months, we have published more than 100 books, thanks to our hardworking staff and our amazing Kickstarter supporters—and a dozen of those books have become New York Times Bestsellers! Two of our longstanding favorite artists, Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, were both awarded their first Eisner Awards (long-overdue, in our not-so-humble opinion); Charles Burns' Black Hole got a cameo in the sci-fi action film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; and our very own Gary Groth received The Stranger's Genius Award in Literature. And that's really just the tip of the iceberg.

To celebrate another year of publishing the world's greatest cartoonists, we'd like to share the love back with you, our loyal Fanta readers.

Remember that one time we offered a Fantabucks 2-for-1 Coupon? Here's a refresher:

Each FantaBucks 2-for-1 Coupon costs just $55 and gets you a unique coupon code worth $110 toward your next purchase of $110 or more (not including shipping) here on Fantagraphics.com! That's like getting half off $110 worth of merchandise! You can buy as many coupons as you like, but you can only use one coupon per order and you must redeem each coupon entirely in a single purchase. You can also buy coupons as gifts — just tell us the recipients' email addresses at checkout. Beginning on Tuesday, December 30, we will email you your personalized coupon code(s).

Important note for 20/20 Club members: with your standard discount, you pay only $44, and so you will receive a coupon in the amount of $88, which, with your discount, is still good for that $110 worth of merchandise. (Paying attention in math class is paying off!)

Monday, December 29, 2014 is the last day to grab this amazing deal, so don't miss out!

2014 Labor Day Sale

As the leaves begin to turn shades of red and orange (or fall straight off and green depending on where you live), backpacks are dusted off in preparation for a new load of textbooks, and we move into fall, we figure you could use some cause for celebration. How about our Labor Day/Back-To-School Sale? We've got great titles of all-ages, young-adult, and non-fiction titles at a whopping 40% Off from Saturday, August 30th through Monday, September 1st!

Batter Up, Charlie Brown! by Charles M. Schulz Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman 21

For your wee ones, how about our gift-sized, baseball-themed Peanuts book, Batter Up, Charlie Brown? Or, for something a little cheekier, there's Steven Weissman's Chocolate Cheeks. For the baseball fans who want a bit more history mixed in, try 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente by Wilfred Santiago

Unlovable Unlovable 2 Caricature

School can be anything you make of it, especially you don't give a damn. For the guy or girl that knows everything, try Unlovable 1 and 2 by Esther Pearl Watson. She may only break wind and not hearts, but Tammy Pierce is unstoppable. For some short stories from all walks of life, ugly and less ugly, grab Daniel ClowesCaricature, often compared to to Nabokov for their complex naturalism and sense of humor.

Ghost World  Celebrated Summer Night Fisher
Is cutting class altogether a common memory for you? How about a classic Fantagraphics alternative comic, sure to win even the most jaded of hearts: Daniel ClowesGhost World (now in its 20th printing) is for you. Already have it? Try the male version of Ghost World, Celebrated Summer by Charles Forsman, that came out in 2014. Night Fisher by R. Kikuo Johnson also follows the teenage trail of growing up and growing apart.

Giraffes in my Hair Mess Everything The Squirrel Mother
Cutting class was too weak? You just dropped out all together? Damn, you might enjoy Giraffes in My Hair, a Jack Kerouac-style story lived by Bruce Paley and drawn by his partner, Carol Swain, all about the summer of '67. On the cusp of flunking out with a drug habit, A Mess of Everything by Miss Lasko-Gross, is an intense and raw look at her own high-school experience. If you're looking for more personal and semi-autobiographical comic stories look no further than The Squirrel Mother by Megan Kelso. It also contains stories about the idea of America and American history, such as a trilogy of short pieces about Alexander Hamilton.

Rebel Visions Pretty in Ink Daniel Clowes Reader
If history is your school-time jam, then grab a copy of Rebel Visions by Patrick Rosenkranz, a history of the alternative cartoonists. Want something even more focused?  A history of women cartoonist will suit you just fine in Pretty In Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 by Trina Robbins. Or the Daniel Clowes Reader, featuring most of Clowes' work and papers on the overriding motifs and themes.  

Black Images in the Comics  American
Consider some new books about comics as an assignment for a graded discussion. Black Images in the Comics by Fredrik Strömberg walks through comics, old and new, to enlighten the audience about the hideous caricatures racism produces so that we may never stray there again. Best American Comics Criticism compiled by Ben Schwartz features the best essays on comics from Chris Ware on Rodolphe Töpffer, Dan Clowes on Mad's Will Elder, The Daily Show's John Hodgman on Jack Kirby and more!

Clouds above Barnaby 1 Sock Monkey Treasury

For those who wish to rise above it all and forget that school ever existed, The Clouds Above is an all-ages full-color romp with a boy and his cat by Jordan Crane. Meanwhile, Barnaby by Crockett Johnson plays with some imaginary creatures including his fairy godfather. Or for something that feels a bit older, more Victorian The Sock Monkey Treasury by Tony Millionaire is for you.

The Last Rose of Summer 
Finally a little prose by Monte Schulz, the novel The Last Rose of Summer. With the Great Depression looming, three strong-minded women related by marriage form an uneasy household in a Southern town.

So clean up on some comics to read while the kids are out at school or to distract you from the textbooks you SHOULD be reading.
