BUG BOYS release party with Laura Knetzger

Join two bug friends as they learn about the science of the world around them and the meaning of friendship in this debut graphic novel by Laura Knetzger! Rhino-B is a brash, but sweet guy.

Original Art: Daniel Clowes release party and signing with Daniel Clowes

Join us on Sunday, February 9 to celebrate the release of Original Art: Daniel Clowes, which turns the spotlight on one of the medium’s most dynamic creators. A vital entry of the Fantagraphics Studio Edition series, this volume draws from Clowes’ nearly 30 years of comics art, ranging from his seminal one-man anthology, Eightball (in which Ghost World was originally serialized), to his most recent graphic novel, 2016’s best-selling time travel thriller, Patience. Daniel Clowes will also take part in a Q&A with Fantagraphics editor, Eric Reynolds.

First Thursday: Build It an Altar

In “Build It an Altar,” Rebecca Artemisa references the way in which we as people build altars for our grief, faith, accomplishments, and happiness. Artemisa references her own Indigenous, Mexican, and Xicana roots with (often) symmetrical images of people building their lives around ends of life, ends of seasons, welcoming new life, embracing new seasons, and untapped joy.
