So you've missed our holiday shipping deadlines but you still want to give the gift of comics this year... what to do? How about a gift membership to the Fantagraphics 20/20 Club? Your lucky and grateful recipient will get 20% savings on all their Fantagraphics purchases plus free shipping (within the U.S.; half off for international) and other perks! Just give us the recipient's name, address, e-mail address and phone number when you place your order. If you're already a member, you know how great the program is; if you're not, read up on the details -- you'll want to get a membership for yourself, too!
If you want your order shipped within the U.S. to arrive before Christmas via USPS Priority Mail, tomorrow (Tuesday, December 16) is the deadline to get your order in! Orders placed with the Standard shipping option right now will most likely arrive after the holiday. After tomorrow, you'll have until Friday for orders shipped by 2nd Day UPS. We'll post a reminder for that deadline as well.
Don't forget to check out our handy Holiday Gift Guide for lots of gift ideas for every interest and budget!
Don't forget, if you want your order shipped by our Standard shipping option within the U.S. to arrive before Christmas, tomorrow (Friday, December 12) is the deadline to get your order in! (UPDATE: our shipping folks have informed me that if you're shipping to a P.O. box, you'll want to select First Class or Priority Mail shipping rather than Standard.) After that, you'll have until Monday for USPS Priority Mail delivery and until next Friday for 2nd Day UPS. We'll post reminders for those deadlines as well.

• Quick Gift Ideas - A selection of great gift books for every interest
Whoop, just 11 hours left to take advantage of our Halloween Sale on a selection of creepy, scary and otherwise ooky comics. Obviously you won't get 'em in time for the holiday, but at savings of up to 25% off, you can get some sweet deals while you're enjoying your trick-or-treat candy.
Today is my birthday and you get the presents! Starting now, and for one week only, the 20/20 Club is the 20/30 Club: members get 30% OFF instead of the usual 20%! This applies to everything on our site: new stuff, old stuff, exclusive stuff, you name it. And just in time for early holiday shopping! Here's how it works:
If you are a current 20/20 Club member and we have your email address, check your inbox for a message from me. This message includes a special Members-only coupon code for you to use to get your additional discount. (This will actually take 12.5% off your already-discounted price; when you do the math, it comes to 30% total.) If we don't have your email address or you didn't get the message for some reason, contact us and we will send the coupon code to you (and add you to our exclusive 20/20 Club mailing list so you can get more special offers, unless you ask us not to).
If you sign up online for the 20/20 Club while this offer is going on, unfortunately we can't apply the extra 10% to your first online order, but we will send you your own one-time-use extra-10% coupon that you can use on your next order any time before Jan. 1, 2009. And if you prefer not to shop online, our customer service folks can apply your discount over the phone at 1-800-657-1100 or 206-524-1967 outside the US.
This special offer ends 11:59 PM Pacific time on Sunday October 26, so get shopping!
We've put together a generous selection of our most spine-tingling horror and monster comics and, for the month of October, we're brutally slashing the prices by up to 25% off! From mildly macabre all-ages adventures to classic creepfests to down-the-rabbit-hole Lynchian nightmares, we've got your Halloween heebie-jeebies right here.

In case you're wondering "Hey, last month's sale is over and there isn't a new one yet -- what gives?" and/or "Where's the informative Fantagraphics email newsletter that usually arrives in my inbox at the beginning of every month?" please rest assured that both are in the works and will be coming your way soon. In fact, this month's sale items are already marked down and you can enjoy the savings right now. Stay tuned for the real announcement, and thanks for your patience.
