Fantagraphics was in full effect at the 2008 Stumptown Comics Fest. Your humble reporter was only there for Saturday of the two-day event, but had a smashing time (and went 200% over budget buying comics, art & t-shirts — yikes). Here's a brief video clip of our table:
The Complete Eightball 1-18 [Pre-Order] Daniel Clowes One of the greatest, most influential comic books of all time collected in a slipcased set of 2 hardback volumes, reproducing each issue in facsimile form exactly as originally published, including material never reprinted before now.
Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell [Pre-Order] Jacques Tardi & Jean-Patrick Manchette Another kick-ass noir thriller by the acclaimed duo. A rich industrialist tries to frame the new nanny for kidnapping his son; it goes wrong; he sets a dangerous killer after them; all hell breaks loose.
Arsène Schrauwen [Pre-Order] Olivier Schrauwen The author's grandfather traveled to a remote colony to help build a utopia in the wilderness, fell in love with his cousin's wife, and then into delirium — but is it love or jungle virus-induced fever, reality or imagination?
Prince Valiant Vol. 10: 1955-1956 Hal Foster Istanbul? No, Constantinople! In the East, Aleta comes under threat of abduction by the Khan's barbarians; back home, Thule comes under threat of hunger and raiders; and a return to Camelot brings a threat of new treachery in Cornwall.
