The Tribulations of Fantagraphics

Category: Info Posted: November 19th, 2013

I was startled to read of the financial difficulties the iconic, cult comic book publisher Fantagraphics has been facing since the death of one of its key editors Kim Thompson this year. They have turned to crowd-funding website Kickstarter to raise the funds to be able to print their 2014 Spring catalogue with successful results thankfully! Considering they work with and publish some of the best contemporary comic artists out there it saddens me to think that they faced collapse- if you’re a fan of Clowes, Sacco, Woodring, Bagg, Crumb among many others then pledge your support!
I’ve included both a link to a Guardian article about what is happening and the Kickstarter link where you can pledge support and get some very cool signed comics and artwork- I pledged for a signed Jim comic myself!
