|In Love with Our Books|

There's no greater love in the world (to us) than a good book. You can enjoy it on the bus, in the bath tub, while eating Cheez Whiz straight from the can and drinking a nice glass of Bordeaux (not OR there -- and). Here are a few of you enjoying and loving our books from the last year (and then some). Above, cartoonist Ben Cohen's daughter reads from The Frank Book by Jim Woodring.
Above, Little Bea read's Good Dog by Graham Chaffee. Gotta say, a lot of dogs seem to love Graham Chaffee's latest graphic novel so you may want to buy a copy not just for yourself but for the dog in your life. Although, most mutts believe that the FBI Mini Bad Dog is more their speed.
Sam Marx, organizer and head volunteer of both SPX and Linework NW, also digs Buddy Does Seattle.
UK cartoonist Joe Decie just HAPPENED to be reading the really cool and sold out Zero Zero by Al Columbia. ;)
Here Rocky (who hails along with his owner David from the UK) enjoys his favorite book in the Love and Rocket series: Penny Century by Jaime Hernandez!
Human Damon Gentry (writer of Sabretooth Swordsman) failed to follow directions and is EATING instead of READING his favorite book, The Frank Book by Jim Woodring.
Cartoonist Jess Underhill enjoys the Love and Rockets Companion book!
Jordan Shiveley of Grimalkin Press and Autoptic gets some good reading done from Drawing Power!
Next up, Loverboy the rabbit bends an ear and his eyes to Julio's Day by Gilbert Hernandez.
Fantagraphics Marketing Director Mike Baehr enjoys a LARGE BOOK night at home with Captain Easy Book 4 by Roy Crane!
Editor Kristy Valenti reads and rereads Pretty in Ink by Trina Robbins (Valenti edited and wrote the last chapter).
Each page turn is a lovely as a meaningful glance across the room or a bite of the lip in anticipation. A good comic will always stay with you. Thanks for loving our books as much as we do!
