Coming Attractions: Fall 2011: Fantagraphics

.

Well, the Beatrix gushed over their Spring 2012 titles, so I guess I’d better review the Fall titles from Fantagraphics.

First, let me say this won’t feature everything.  I appreciate all the cool stuff they publish, but a lot of it just doesn’t interest me.  You probably have different tastes, so feel free to comment down below.  Here’s the FBI page for 2011 releases, so go take a look.  Fanta also has a bargain bin, so you’ll probably find something in your price range!  They also have special offers for new titles, so please take a look!  (If you’re going to ship your book bucks to Washington, it’s better to send them to Fantagraphics than Amazon!)  Click on the titles below to go to the official pages on the FBI website!

So, here’s what I find interesting.

For (what is hoped) the final time here on Coming Attractions:

Comments

  1. FLANNERY OCONNOR was a cartoonist!?! Wow!

    Lotsa awesome stuff from Fantagraphics! So exciting. I just wish more of it went straight to paper. I am so not into hardcover books. That’s just me, tho.

  2. The Luc Besson movie version of “Adele Blanc-Sec” is available on region-free DVD with English subtitles.
