What does Holla Forums think of Fantagraphics?

They publish some interesting shit, although it's diminished by how pricey some of it is and how quickly some books go out of print. Right now I'm following their new All Time Comics line of superhero pastiches.

Kinda sad that the Eros line is dead though.

I've always thought they were sort of hipsterish

I rather love them. I remember when I was I kid there was a small gift shop that had these mysterious independent comic books, in particular Love and Rockets. It's the fact that you didn't know where they came from, you didn't know who made them, and they were interesting.

Fantagraphics captures that in my opinion.

Because the world and its people have given them a very good reason to be bitter.

Been getting their hardback EC collections on and off, when I can afford it. Don't think I've ever read their own material.

They gave us high-quality Megg, Mogg and Owl books so they're alright with me.

Holla Forums never talks about Fantagraphics.
Holla Forums is all capeshit, all the time.

Luis Barnes

To be fair, if nobody bitched talked about capeshit, nobody would talk about comics at all.

Then you might be accused of having good taste and knowing where you are at all times.

I'm not big on most of the non reprint stuff they do, but they publish Richard Sala's stuff and that alone makes them okay in my book.

Do they still publish classic Peanuts comics?

Luis Scott

not familiar, what have they published?

They're still doing paperback versions of their hardbound collections.

Aside from collections of classic/obscure stuff and comic-related non-fiction, they do publish contemporary comics by the Hernandez Brothers, Dan Clowes, Noah Van Schiver, Simon Hanselmann, Johnny Ryan, and so on. They even publish manga, though their selection is small and limited to stuff that might not be of interest to the average weeb.

James Brooks
James Brooks

Well, the stuff you should pay attention to is Black Hole, Cud, Eightball, Hate, Jim, Love and Rockets, Naughty Bits, Usagi Yojimbo, Omaha the Cat Dancer,

Magazines
Amazing Heroes, The Comics Journal,

GNs and TPs
Ghost World, Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library, The Don Rosa Library, The Complete Crumb Comics, Krazy Kat, Little Nemo, Pogo, Prince Valiant

Basically they're the classy indie publisher with a sense of history of the medium and comics as art. You know, stuff you can have on your coffee table and not get called a cunt.

They publish a lot of stuff I wouldn't agree with politically, but that's likely a function of how comics came to develop as a medium. Left-wing counter-culture (which later became just mainstream culture) is kind of foundational to independent comics publishing, so it's no surprise that they'd publish a lot of work that appeals to those sensibilities. Aside from that and the fact that their stuff tends to be pricey, I like them. Their collections are some of the highest-quality in comics and they publish enough niche stuff that there's bound to be something that appeals to you on some level. And they're not fad-chasing or IP farming unlike most publishers.

I ask the same about reddit, and why they aren't honest with themselves and admit their own bitterness, or rather, why they lack the introspection to see it there in the first place.
