Elvis Burns!
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsCharles Burns 25 Oct 2010 12:48 PM

The package of posters and prints arrived for the Charles Burns X'ED OUT appearance this Saturday at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. Seeing his wonderful work on a larger scale is such a treat. He sent copies of 10 rare pieces spanning the range of his career. Prices start at 25 bucks! Yes. You read that right.

The colorful silkscreen image of Elvis seemed hauntingly familiar. Only $150! Burnin' love, indeed. I couldn't recall the source at first, but perused my comix and zine collection and came across the hilarious "Elvis in Hell" issue of Greed magazine from 1988 with a different colored version on the cover. (Plus a feature on Peter Bagge inside.)

The uncut sheets of "Goon Squad" trading cards with a bonus black and white image on the back are just 50 bucks, but we only have 3 copies.

In addition to posters and prints, the exhibition will include Burns' work from the early 1980s for Seattle's Sub Pop record label and Art Spiegelman's RAW magazine. Don't miss this amazing event as Charles Burns returns for a rare visit to his hometown. See you all then.
