Please help us raise $4K in the next 22 hours
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under staffKovey Korner 18 Jan 2008 11:40 AM

Jacob Covey emailed myself, Adam Grano and Mike Baehr a few minutes ago with THIS link to an eBay auction that ends in 22 hours, promising to wear this item to work EVERY DAY if we buy it for him. We don't make enough to go in on $4K three ways, but if there's a wealthy benefactor out there with a sick sense of humor, we would really like to call his bluff. You have no idea how much this would improve office morale (for most of us, anyway).

P.S. Adam said he'd go $100 easy, as would I, and possibly as high as $300. So we really only need like $3500. As of now no one has bid, maybe the seller will even come down on the price if no one does. 

 P.P.S. Kevin Eastman should buy this for us just to have a ninja turtle walking around in Gary Groth's office every day. 

UPDATE:  Auction ended with no bids and was re-listed at $3,299. Hope is not lost.

Google news just alerted me to this parallel universe called "Utah" where there's a real estate agent named Eric Reynolds selling homes in the town of Herriman.

Tom Spurgeon just made my day, and not just because his essential Comics Reporter is back up-and-running. No, I'm talkin' about this photo of Jeff Foxworthy and Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. the fuckin' Kingpin of Crime), from Halloween night circa 1996:

Fantagraphics Uncensored: Eric Reynolds, Promo Guy
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under staffFletcher HanksAlexander Theroux 18 Dec 2007 10:09 AM
Jacob: "Did Norman Mailer really call Laura Warholic "brilliantly written?"

Eric: "He did! Very shortly before he died. Much like Vonnegut did with Fletcher Hanks. We're killing America's greatest writers."

Overheard in the office.

Dear Friends,

After nearly a dozen years of selling comic books for the Publisher of the World's Greatest Cartoonists, I must sadly announce that I am (voluntarily) moving on to other -- non-comics -- pastures.

When I started at Fantagraphics back in 1996, I had no idea what to expect from the comic book world. I was a naïve young pup just looking for a publishing job. Over the years I've learned a lot from the job (mostly by trial and error) and made a lot of good friends (and a few enemies). I have spent half of my 20's and 30's working for a company that stubbornly and stringently holds the integrity of their favored art form high above all else*. Working in comics and working for this company has given me extraordinary experiences that will influence everything that I do in the future.

Thank you for helping to create those experiences.


Sincerely,
Gregory Zura
Sales/Marketing Guy

Yeah but can he skate?

Former Fallout Records owner and long-time Friend of Fantagraphics (and occasional employee back in the day) Tim Hayes is opening up a bar called Tigertail this next Friday in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. If you know what's good for you, you'll be there.

Besides a sake menu and what's sure to be a great jukebox, the works of Daniel Johnston (from Hayes' collection) will be up on display!

Seattle Weekly has more here.
