Fantagraphics Books

The work of R. Crumb, Peter Bagge, Gilbert and Jamie Hernandez, Joe Sacco, Chris Ware, Jessica Abel, plus others, come alive on the pages of Fantagraphics Book’s website. Fantagraphics came about in 1979, and from that point on, it spearheaded the effort to find comics that were serious, dramatic, historical, journalistic, political and satirical, all expressed in comic form, not the superhero and fantasy stuff the mainstream publishers stuck to. This is the best place to find and purchase classics like “Peanuts” anthologies, “Acme Novelty Library,” “Bardin the Superrealist,” “Palestine: The Special Edition” and R. Crumb’s “Kafka,” as well as keep an eye on upcoming books and comics that continue in the tradition that Fantagraphics helped create. Alternative comics are now accepted as an important form of artistic expression, and Fantagraphics had a lot to do with that, maintaining its position as a group of “challenging and entertaining rabble-rousers amid the panorama of popular culture.”
