Wednesday, August 6th
- The Fantagraphics Bookstore is a happening place this week, and we're starting that party early by holding a reception for exceptional Toronto cartoonist, Georgia Webber. From 6-9:00 pm, get aquainted with one of your new favorite artists, as she debuts work from the web-serialized, autobiographical story, "Dumb". A terrifying true-story about losing her voice, and trying to not lose her mind, all while learning to cope and heal.
- Now in stores! Come celebrate the release of JIM with none other than Jim! (Woodring that is.) Part anthology, part retrospective, Jim is his namesake's cartoon alter-ego, traversing the surreal and phantasmic landscape we've come to love and admire in his other work. A collection of comics, prose, and drawings that give great insight to one of the most mind-bending, and influential artists of the age. Pick up this beautiful new hardcover at our signing from 6-8:00 PM! (More details)
