The Complete Peanuts 1953-1954 (Vol. 2 - Softcover) by Charles M. Schulz - Photo/Video Slideshow

The Complete Peanuts 1953-1953 (Vol. 2 - Softcover)
by Charles M. Schulz

320-page color 8.25" x 6.25" hardcover • $22.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-792-5

Ships in: October 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Our second paperback volume of the acclaimed Complete Peanuts series finds Schulz continuing to establish his tender and comic universe. It begins with Peanuts' third full year and a cast of eight: Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder, Lucy, baby Linus, and Snoopy. By the end of 1954, Pigpen and his dust cloud join the crowd. Linus emerges as one of the most complex and endearing characters in the strip, and acquires his security blanket! Charlie Brown is becoming his best-known self, the lovable loser, but he hasn’t yet abandoned his brasher, prankish behavior from our first volume. And, Lucy has grown up and forcefully elbowed her way to the center of the action. For readers unfamiliar with the early years of the strip, Snoopy's appearances here may come as the biggest surprise: he behaves, for the most part, like a dog!

Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set by Ed Piskor - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesEd Piskor 19 Sep 2014 3:00 PM

"It’s a great story and Piskor tells it immaculately well." – Bill Adler (co-author, Def Jam: The First 25 Years of the Last Great Record Label)

"In Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree, readers get to experience the origins of rap music in a way like never before; they get to live it. They get to walk the streets of New York City, where in rented performance rooms with cobbled-together gear pioneers like DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, and Grandmaster Flash birthed a new art form." – Comics Alliance

"An avid lover of hip-hop music and superhero comic books from a young age, Ed Piskor has combined his two passions to create a remarkable reading experience…Hip Hop Family Tree imagines real-world events through the filter of 1980s Marvel Comics, bringing hip-hop visionaries to the page in a style that exaggerates their energy and style to capture the intensity of the music without having the beats." – AV Club

"The amount of research and history Piskor packs into this book is mind boggling." – Huffington Post

Hip Hop Family Tree Vols. 1-2: 1975-1983 Box Set

Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Tony MillionairepreviewsMatt DannerComing Attractions 19 Sep 2014 12:30 PM

In these first nine pages of Tony Millionaire and Matt Danner's upcoming Sock Monkey book, Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods, Uncle Gabby appears to be dreaming about how he came to be a sock monkey living in the house of Ann-Louise. In a shifting dreamscape perspective, he gooes from a monkey with a toothache, to a fallen monkey's tooth next to an orchid, to a freshly-sewn sock monkey with a hidden monkey's tooth embedded in its breast pocket, beginning to flicker to life.

You can download and read the whole 9-page, 1 MB excerpt here, and check out our book listing page for more previews and to pre-order your copy! Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods comes out in October.

Me and Mr. Burns
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under staffrockFantagraphics BookstoreeventsCharles Burns 19 Sep 2014 10:34 AM

 Charles_Burns_Portrait

I first crossed paths with Charles Burns in the mid-70s, when we both attended a small college in rural Washington State. I later learned that Burns wasn't entirely comfortable in an art school attended by eccentric Charles Manson enthusiasts and Symbionese Liberation Army sympathizers. By contrast, I had finally found my people. Burns soon departed for the greener pastures of The Evergreen State College, where he joined talented young artists Lynda Barry and Matt Groening.

 Sub_Pop_7  Rocket_Burns_right

Upon graduating in 1978, I opened the experimental Rosco Louie gallery in the tony Pioneer Square section of Seattle. I was privileged to give both Lynda Barry and Charles Burns their first gallery shows. Burns later served as soundman at Rosco Louie for a performance by San Francisco band Pink Section, which included his then-girlfriend, fashion designer Carol Detwieler. He in turn designed the cover for the 1982 Sub Pop 7 cassette compilation, which included my wife's band, Little Bears From Bangkok. At the same time we were both frequent contributors to Seattle music monthly, The Rocket.

As Burns migrated to the East Coast, we both continued our association with Sub Pop. In 1988, Burns illustrated the stunning cover to the momentous Sub Pop 200 LP. Shortly thereafter, I promoted a Tad, Mudhoney, and Nirvana show at my alternative space, the Center on Contemporary Art, which found Kurt sporting a Burns tee shirt. (As seen in Charles Peterson's photo above.) On a subsequent Seattle visit in 1993, I accompanied Burns to a secret Tad and Nirvana show at a small downtown venue, where he was received as a rock star himself. 

Throughout my tenure at Fantagraphics Books, I've continued to encounter Charles Burns, a pleasure that will repeat itself this evening when Burns appears at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery to present his new graphic novel, Sugar Skull. Please join me in welcoming this immensely influential artist back to his hometown.

Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War! - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesJacques Tardi 18 Sep 2014 6:00 PM

Praise for It Was the War of the Trenches

"'The war to end all wars' has become a magisterial comic book to end all comic books. I seldom give blurbs, but this book is an essential classic. Among all of Jacques Tardi's towering achievements as a comics artist, nothing looms larger than this devastating crater of a work. It’s a compulsively readable wail of Existential despair, a kaleidoscope of war’s dehumanizing brutality and of Everyman’s suffering, as well as a deadpan masterpiece of the darkest black humor. The richly composed and obsessively researched drawings — perfectly poised between cartoon and illustration — march to the relentless beats of Tardi’s three horizontal panels per page to dig a hole deep inside your brain. This is one Hell of a book." – Art Spiegelman

"Tardi's depiction of the First World War is so impassioned and visceral that it can be compared to the work of the artists who actually served in the trenches." – Joe Sacco

"French master Tardi gives an infantry-level view of World War I's meat-grinder carnage in grim vignettes that primarily keep tight, telling focus on the stories of individual soldiers. …[It Was the War of the Trenches] deserves a place on the top shelf of graphic lit.” – Cliff Froehlich, St. Louis Post-Dipatch

Praise for Goddamn This War!

"As brutal and horrific as the Great War itself, this book rivals All Quiet on the Western Front when it comes to the insane idiocy of the conflict." – Max Brooks

Tardi's WWI: It Was the War of the Trenches/Goddamn This War!
by Jacques Tardi, with Jean-Pierre Verney

260-page black & white/color 8.25” x 10.75” hardcover • $39.99
