January Book-A-Day Sale: The Last Lonely Saturday
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specialsJordan Crane 7 Jan 2015 3:00 AM

The Last Lonely Saturday by Jordan Crane - Cover

Today, our January Book-A-Day Sale features a bittersweet, melancholy book by Jordan Crane—his first self-published graphic novel. The Last Lonely Saturday is a largely wordless, two-color book telling the story of an older man on the day he visits his departed wife's gravesite.

In this evocative, romantic novella, told in a beautiful red and yellow palette, Crane's economical images waste not a line, and his narrative flows effortlessly from panel to panel in this heartwarming story of love and love lost.

For today only, The Last Lonely Saturday is available at a 40% discount

January Book-A-Day Sale: The Crackle of the Frost
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specialsLorenzo Mattotti 6 Jan 2015 3:00 AM

The Crackle of the Frost by Lorenzo Mattotti & Jorge Zentner - CoverToday's January Book of the Day is by acclaimed Italian illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti and Argentine comic writer Jorge Zentner. In The Crackle of the Frost, Mattotti's whirling, vivid, and emotionally charged images tell the story of Samuel, who fled his relationship with Alice after she expressed her desire to bear his child.

A year later, he receives a letter from Alice announcing that she is pregnant, spurring him to visit her—to re-open, or perhaps close forever, that important chapter of his life

The Crackle of the Frost is available today at 35% off! Check out our book page for previews and more info.

January Book-A-Day Sale: Ghosts and Ruins
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under sales specialsBen Catmull 5 Jan 2015 5:00 AM

Ghosts and Ruins by Ben Catmull - Cover

Today's book of the day: Ben Catmull's gorgeous hardcover coffee-table art book of ghost stories, Ghosts and Ruins!

Catmull's images are evocative, haunting masterpieces that never tread in graphic imagery, choosing instead to suggest horrors far more frightening than what they explicitly depict. With just the right touch of humor to balance the terror, Ghosts and Ruins is sure to please fans of Edward Gorey or Tim Burton, and makes a perfect gift book for the ghost story fan in your house.

Ghosts and Ruins is available all day today at 30% off! Previews and photosets are available on our order page.

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

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!
