|Introducing our Vintage Comics section|
|Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta||8 Feb 2011 2:53 PM|
We've made a perhaps-overdue update to our online shop, creating a new category called "Vintage Comics" for our collections of early comic book stories. This should make them easier to find all together than in the overarching "Classic" category, which includes newspaper strips, illustration books and other stuff.
What it is:
"Fantagraphics is pleased to present collections of the finest comic book art and artists from the pioneering days of comic books in the middle decades of the 20th Century (and scholarly writing thereon). These lovingly-restored, beautifully-designed tomes present the best and most noteworthy work from the era, in genres ranging from superheroes to horror to crime to romance to humor. These books will hone your appreciation of the exciting and groundbreaking stories and artwork from the early days of comic books — not to mention providing a lot of fun reading!"
The link to the section has a permanent home in our "Browse Shop" menu tab, under the "Interests & Topics" heading (formerly "Interests"). You may notice we made a few other tweaks to that menu as well, mainly shuffling some items around into a (hopefully) more logical configuration. Hope you like it!
