If you live in or plan to visit the great Pacific Northwest, be sure to visit our very own storefront, simply called the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, in the happenin' Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown. The culmination of a years-long dream, the store opened in October 2006, with a grand opening celebration held on December 2 of that year (and swinging anniversary parties each year thereafter). The store contains everything Fantagraphics has in print (as well as our adult imprint Eros Comix), including exclusive merchandise, plus a selection of the best alternative comics from our fellow publshers and other surprises! It also houses our hallowed Damaged Room, featuring heavily discounted and often out-of-print books unavailable anywhere else. (And vinyl junkies be warned: the Bookstore shares space with Georgetown Records, a Seattle record-collectors' mecca. And it is just a short stroll from some of Seattle's best and most beloved coffee shops, taverns, eateries and art spaces.)

The space also has room for art exhibitions, with a new exhibit mounted about once a month. We also host readings, screenings, music and other performances. Our current and upcoming events include:

• November 12, 2011: Short Run exhibit curated by Kelly Froh and after-party for the Short Run Small Press Fest (more info)
• November 25, 2011: Peter Bagge Black Friday book signing (more info)
• December 10, 2011: Playing Possum: The Pogo Art of Walt Kelly exhibit opening and 5th Anniversary Party (details TBA)

Be sure to check the Fantagraphics Bookstore tag on Flog! The Fantagrahics Blog (RSS), "like" the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery page on Facebook, and follow @fantagraphics on Twitter to keep up to date on all of our current and upcoming happenings.
