Get ready! This weekend, Friday, March 4th - Sunday, March 6th, Fantagraphics will be taking the 9th Annual Emerald City Comicon by storm!
And slashing things open on Friday, March 4th will be Jacques Boyreau, editor and cultural historian of the book Portable Grindhouse: The Lost Art of the VHS Box, a celebration of some of the most louche, decadent, minimo-pervo artwork to ever grace a VHS box.
Join Jacques at the Fantagraphics booth at space #808! He'll be signing copies of Portable Grindhouse, and showing film footage, on Friday, March 4th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
[Jacques will also be joining our friends at the Northwest Film Forum on Friday, March 4th for the opening night of Metalhaus: 1977-1995, a series of heavy metal concert footage, curated by Jacques and Darren Aboulafia! Badass! ]
And yes, the rumors are true! Tickets for the Emerald City Comic-Con are still available at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Georgetown. See you there!
