The Stranger remembers Kim Thompson

Kim Thompson by Jim Blanchard
The Stranger, one of our local alt-weeklies that shares many ties with Fantagraphics throughout the ages ran a tribute to Kim Thompson written by former employee Robert Boyd. Giving context to the comics world as the more commercial spoke the art world wheel, Boyd touches on Kim's job as a creative enabler and rabid music fan.

"Kim encouraged and cajoled many cartoonists to produce art they never otherwise would have dreamed possible. I imagine that if Fantagraphics had not been there in 1982, Jaime Hernandez might have gone on to a successful, respectable career as a penciller for Marvel and DC."

Read the full write-up over at The Stranger. Make sure you click on all the images, there is a great new comic by Eric Reynolds and Ellen Forney there in addition to Steven Weissman, Pat Moriarity, Eroyn Franklin with our own Janice Headley.

Come to Fantagraphics Bookstore this Saturday as we welcome Brian Ralph on a rare visit to the Northwest. He'll present his new book Reggie-12 with a slide show, signing and reception. In a preview of the event, Paul Constant of The Stranger writes, "It's not for kids, but it feels as fizzy as a Saturday morning cartoon, in the best way possible. If you were raised on Astro Boy or Godzilla movies, you'll love the fuck out of this book."

The latest member of Fantagraphics fabulous marketing team, Janice Headley, came up with the winning slogan for Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery — part of a "Think Local" sustainability campaign sponsored by Seattle Good Business Network and The Stranger. The lovely Ms. Headley is joined by slightly mortified bookstore manager Larry Reid. We're not entirely certain about the association of lurid sex comix with environmental stewardship, but we're now assured that Janice will fit in perfectly with the rest of us misfits and miscreants at Fantagraphics. Welcome aboard!

The photo was shot by our Stranger friend Katie Phoenix. While researching the relationship of comix shop clerks and sex expertise — (we figured it was obvious) — Katie discovered this fascinating website. Yes, we'll certainly give Stranger sex-advice columnist Dan Savage a run for his money. So be sure to drop by Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery for expert advice on, uhm...Valentine's Day gifts for your sweetie. Yes, that's it. We've got the goods. See you all soon.

Jim Woodring officially declared a GENIUS by The Stranger

We all knew it, but now it's official! Congratulations to Jim Woodring for being awarded this year's Stranger Genius Award in Literature. Announcing the award on The Stranger's blog Slog, Paul Constant says "Woodring is the first Stranger Genius of Literature who has been published by local publisher Fantagraphics Books (they've been ardent promoters of Woodring's work from the very beginning of his career). Quite simply, that's insane: They're the best comics publisher in the world. They publish geniuses on a regular basis, and many would argue that Woodring is the greatest cartooning genius on the Fantagraphics roster. We agree with that sentiment." Well thanks Paul! Read the rest of the announcement for more info, including what Jim plans to do with the $5000 prize money.
