Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the debut of a 20th century masterpiece: George Herriman's enduring Krazy Kat strip (though she'd been around as a character for a couple of years prior). We're celebrating by offering all of our available softcover Krazy & Ignatz Sunday strip collections for 20% off for the next 100 hours! That means the sale ends at 6 PM PST on Friday, October 18.
Our copies of Danny Bland's debut novel In Case We Die have arrived but we're not sending orders out quite yet. The reason? Danny's going to drop by soon and sign a whole mess of them! That's right, the first 80 or so people to order the book will have their copy signed by the author! (Sorry, no personalizations, despite the photo.) Orders will begin shipping on or about next Wednesday, August 21.
AND, we're extending our free audiobook download offer! Order the book by Monday, August 26 and on Tuesday, August 27 you'll receive an email from Local 638 Records with a code you can use to download the complete, unabridged audiobook (read by a brain-melting lineup of musicians, comedians and thespians) for FREE! Sample a few excerpts and see the full lineup here. This is an exclusive offer for Fantagraphics direct customers!
Oh shit, guys. Simon Hanselmann is having a sale on original art, comic covers and his infamous Truth Zone comics. Simon states, "I am currently offering (scamming people with) the originals of truth zone episodes 1-69. they are $120 in Australian dollars..." Not to be the bearer of bad news but since his Tumblr posts went up, pages are starting to go so don't think you can just go out and have a pint first and expect that page you want to still be there (you know, the one of the Crittys, where Simon drew you and bagged on Nick Gazin at the same time).
Hanselmann's book with Fantagraphics, MEGAHEX, was announced at SDCC and is coming out summer of 2014. So jump on these pages while the getting is rather inexpensive and then you can nod at the original art every day you walk by it, chuckling to yourself AND your good fortune for reading the Flog on a Friday. Damn, you're a smart person. More on Hanselmann's Tumblr, Girl Mountain. Get a page and then get a pint.

Our Memorial Day Mega-Blowout Sale is exceeding our wildest expectations!

We will be restocking and filling backorders just as soon as we figure out how many of each title we need, but please note that your order may be delayed in shipping up to 4 weeks. With that in mind, we advise you to NOT choose rush shipping when placing your order!
