"Game Over" Not Yet Over at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 20 Aug 2012 9:01 AM

Game Over: Failed Alternative Video Games

Sadly, I was out of town when the show first opened, so yesterday was my first look at our latest exhibit Game Over: Failed Alternative Video Games, and holy heck -- it's a winner!

Inspired by video game journalist Bob Mackey's piece for 1Up.com, our very own Jen Vaughn conceptualized the “box art” of some of our most famous graphic novels reimagined as failed videogame adaptations. For example...

Prison Pit: the Video Game

How about Prison Pit for the Xbox 360? As Jen puts it, "even gorier than Mortal Kombat!" The box detail that cracked me up? "No quests here." Ain't that the truth!

Dungeon Quest for Wii

Speaking of quests, who wouldn't want to try out Dungeon Quest: Book Three for the Wii? Introducing new playable character, Lou the Little Forest Man! The box detail that made me laugh here: "Skip that next bag of weed and save up for Dungeon Quest 3..." HEE!

Game Over: Failed Alternative Video Games

If you live outside of Seattle and can't make it to the show, you can check out more of Jen's hilarious and awesome adapations over on the Fantagraphics Flickr

But if you do live around Seattle, don't let it be game over for you! You have until Wednesday, September 5th to check out the show. The Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at Airport Way S. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

Sexytime Book Launch in London!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Jacques Boyreaueventsart shows 25 Jul 2012 11:39 AM

Sexytime Book Launch poster

It's the launch so sexy, editor Jacques Boyreau took it to a whole 'nother country... Hey London! Get ready for a sexy time with the launch of Sexytime: The Post-Porn Rise of the Pornoisseur!

Join Jacques at The Horse Hospital in London for the official book release party on Friday, August 24th at 7:30 PM. Be one of the first to get your hands on this anthology of over a hundred of the most outrageously over-the-top porn movie posters of the era!

It's also the kick-off for an exhibit of pristinely re-mastered movie posters from the golden age of American porn, a collection of taboo-busting 1970s “porno chic” erotomania.

The exhibition runs through September 1st, and there will be daily matinee screenings of Jacques Boyreau's Candy Von Dewd & the Girls from Latexploitia... I bet that's exactly what it sounds like.

The Horse Hospital is located at Colonnade, Bloomsbury in London. Someone go check in on those horses for me.

A Tribute to Dale Yarger on Sunday, July 1 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 19 Jun 2012 12:37 PM

A Tribute to Dale Yarger on Sunday, July 1 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Graphic artist Dale Yarger was at the center of activity in Seattle throughout the 1980s and '90s as our city prepared to engage popular culture on a global scale. Yarger's tenure at The Rocket magazine in the 1980s included designing Bruce Pavitt's monthly Sub Pop column, where he refined the look and the ubiquitous logo of the future record label. He moved from there to the position of head art director at Fantagraphics Books during the formative period of alternative comix. He later left to become art director of The Stranger and helped guide that magazine to regional prominence and a national profile. Sadly, Yarger lost a long battle with cancer and passed away earlier this year at the age of 61.

The public is invited to celebrate the legacy of this remarkable artist at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Sunday, July 1st from 4:00 to 8:00 PM. "A Tribute to Dale Yarger" will include an exhibition of Dale's memorable design work, along with testimonials and anecdotes from his many friends and colleagues in Seattle. Please join us. The exhibition will remain on view through July 10, 2012.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of Seattle's historic Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

Anders Nilsen - Adam and Eve Sneaking Back into the Garden of Eden to Steal More Apples

Chicago, you've got one hell of an awesome weekend coming up. Kick things off on Friday, June 15th with the opening reception for a new exhibit from Anders Nilsen at the Elmhurt Art Museum.

Titled Adam and Eve Sneaking Back Into the Garden to Steal More Apples, the show will mostly be drawings, and includes the largest drawing Anders says he's probably ever done, a 5' x 8' leviathan.

Anders will also debut a 28'-long handmade accordian book called Rage of Poseidon. He explains, "The book compiles a number of stories adapted from my sketchbooks, all stories of familiar gods and angels, including ones about Isaac and Abraham, the Devil, Leda and the Swan, and one where Jesus tries to pick up Aphrodite in a bar."  Visit Anders' blog for more details about the show, and some behind-the-scenes photos.

Join him for the opening reception this Friday night at 6:30 PM, and make a return visit on Friday, August 17th for a slideshow presentation and artist talk with Anders.

The Elmhurst Art Museum is located at 150 Cottage Hill Ave. in Elmhurst, Illinois, right outside Chicago.
