Texans can buy Tony Millionaire a drink or have him sign your books this Saturday, December 1st, from 3 to 6 pm. (Austin Books & Comics, 5002 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78751.) And, yes, his Drinky Crow Show is in the works with new characters being developed and churned out of the Transylvanian Animation Factory as I type.

The insurance company was a bit put off by the condition of the offices here at Fantagraphics so we've been cleaning up. In the process this placemat sketch from R. Crumb was discovered. I've included a detail of, yes, Robert Crumb's drawing of a Pokemon (presumably one in the possession of Gary's son, Conrad).

Next Saturday, the 8th, Seattle has some good times going on. The Fantaversary for our 1 year old storefront in Georgetown and the annual Vera Bazaar craftfair along with the "Bring It, Screen It" event at The Vera Project in Belltown. BISI is a fun event for which various designers create a one-off Vera "logo" for the community to come in and try their hands at silkscreening their own shirts, etc. Below is my contribution (if, you know, somebody wants to "rainbow roll" their print). What can I say- Kids love skulls. It's a no-brainer.

Apropros of nothing: We've got some truly remarkable books coming out by "new" talents next year. I'm just sayin'.

UPDATE::: Thanks to Jenny "Felt Club" Ryan for doing stealth damage control when I erroneously called the Vera Bazaar the Bizarre Bazaar. Jenny was easy on me. It could have gotten real ugly.
