Fantagraphics & Beasts


As a child I spent a lot of time with the Peanuts gang. A lot. No really, just ask my parents. So when Fantagraphics started re-publishing the entire Peanuts series I was extremely excited.

Fantagraphics is one of those unsung heroes of the publishing world. The material released is alway interesting and of high quality They publish a large collection of books and comics – tending toward the offbeat and alternative variety (Clowes, Crumb, Hernandez, Woodring…) but also re-printing alot of classic materials (Peanuts, Denis the Menace, Eldon Dedini etc).

One of their more recent interesting projects is the Beasts book. The books is “a collection of mythological creatures illustrated by about a hundred of the most acclaimed artists and cartoonists from the most avant-garde gambits of the art world.” Additionally, as part of the book release there is a limited edition letterpress book showcasing 10 of the illustrations being released through the art site Tiny Showcase.

Find out even more about the book, signings and book events at the Beasts blog. And keep up to date with Fantagraphics goings-on at their blog.

  1. A absolutely agree, Fantagraphics is awesome. They also seem really open to new comic artists.

  2. Yes, sorry, I didn’t mean to imply they don’t have a great selection of new artists/writers.

    Oh how the bank account suffers.
