GIANT sale on The Comics Journal back issues - one week only!

The Comics Journal sale banner

This is huge — EVERY issue of The Comics Journal is now on sale! All available issues through #287 are HALF OFF and #288-300 are 1/3 OFF! Plus, all Comics Journal Library books and Comics Journal Special Editions are also HALF OFF!

The Comics Journal #38  The Comics Journal #139

In preparation for the sale we scoured our warehouse and discovered two classic old issues from deep in the past which were previously thought out of print: The landmark #38 from 1978, named a Top Ten Issue of TCJ by Love & Maggie and a personal favorite of Kim Thompson's, features coverage of DC Comics' cover-price increase, Gary Groth's historic interview with Gil Kane, reviews of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Allegro Non Troppo, the first ever "Blood and Thunder" letters column, and much more! And the jam-packed #139 from 1990 includes Peter Bagge interviewing Aline Kominsky-Crumb, part 2 of an Alan Moore interview, Jim Woodring's post-mortem on Weirdo, reporting on the Florida retailer obscenity bust, a Lloyd Dangle sketchbook and more. That's just a tiny sample of the kinds of great features that await you in the pages of this award-winning, critically-lauded magazine.

This sale lasts for a VERY limited time and who knows when we'll repeat it (it's been over 3 years since our last TCJ sale) so don't hesitate to load up on the world's best magazine about comics! It's all over at the end of the day next Friday, May 14, 2010.

The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book + Dungeon Quest Book 1

A late-ish addendum to our launch of Joe Daly's Dungeon Quest, Book 1: we're pleased to now offer that book together with Joe's previous book, The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book, for a special discounted price of $29.99 (a savings of about 6 bucks)! Two books full of intrigue, action, weird characters and stoner humor delineated in stunning, hyper-detailed clear-line cartooning. Order right here and we'll ship you both books when Dungeon Quest arrives in our warehouse (and if you've already placed an order for both books individually, contact us and we'll adjust your order).

Join us on Saturday for Amazing Art, Crazy Comix, and Amusing Music

Georgetown Art Attack flyer

This Saturday evening, April 10, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery features music by our resident warehouse composers Martin Bland, Tom Price and friends in the dissonant Zinjanthropus, joined by the audio assault of Ajax in Ardent Vein. Don’t miss your chance to view the stunning artwork of Gilbert Hernandez from his new book HIGH SOFT LISP.

Outside, our annual Spring Cleaning Sidewalk Sale will be accompanied by the sounds of more than 20 eccentric marching bands from across the country. Lots of books up to 50% off cover price with music provided by the cacophonous Honk Fest West, featuring free performances at several locations throughout the historic industrial arts quarter. If that’s not enough excitement, the Georgetown Art Attack features a diverse array of visual and performing arts at dozens of spots in close proximity to the bookstore.

To accommodate all this activity, S. Vale Street will be closed to traffic for the evening. But plenty of free parking is available along Airport Way and elsewhere.

We’re open every day at 1201 S. Vale St, just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Phone 206.658.0110. See you this weekend.

Gahan Wilson at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, Jan. 13, 2010

Residents of the Northwest will want to visit Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery before next Wednesday, March 10 for a final look at Gahan Wilson's art exhibition. A half-dozen exquisite original paintings are complemented by 10 delightful new prints from the master of the macabre.

As an incentive, Fantagraphics is offering a bookstore-only discount on both the normal and special editions of the 3-volume, embossed slipcase set GAHAN WILSON: 50 YEARS OF PLAYBOY CARTOONS. Through the end of the show, the normal edition is $25 off and the special edition is $50 off cover price! And while supplies last, each purchase will include a signed silkscreen Gahan Wilson print.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of the Georgetown arts community, only minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110. See you all soon.

(Ed. note: Above, Gahan Wilson makes the acquaintance of Michael Leavitt's action-figure sculpture of R. Crumb. Have a look at this and more recently-posted photos of the exhibit opening from Flickr user and friend of Fantagraphics Bookstore Jo David.)
