Treat Yourself This Holiday Season

with some Adrian Tomine original art. He doesn't sell his artwork too often, so buy quickly from our pals at Giant Robot while you can. View the complete show at GRNY. Here's two of my favorites:

"Carnival" New Yorker illustration

"Yukie" illustration from Private Stash. Sorry boys and girls, this one is sold.

Pascal Blanchet on CBC: "Q"

Last Monday Pascal Blanchet was interviewed by Jian Ghomeshi, about White Rapids. You can listen here. (It's about 2/3 in - or you can listen to the first parts with John Waters and Louise Pitre.)

Just arrived!

In stores and your hands in two weeks (so I guess that means Christmas Eve.)

Rutu Rules!

Rutu Modan's Exit Wounds has been cropping up on "Best Of" lists all over the place. TIME, whose Top 10 Graphic Novels list Exit Wounds made, says that "[its] high-spirited plot ... is laid out in eloquent, perfectly composed matte panels." New York Magazine and Publishers Weekly also put it on their lists, and, earlier this year, HEEB put Exit Wounds on their Best of 5767 list and Rutu on their HEEB 100. In summation, Rutu rules!

Our store blog has launched!

Here's a photo from the recent Elisabeth Belliveau and Richard Suicide Conundrum Press book launch. Elisabeth is holding her dog there on the left. To see the very pink store blog go here or click on that "211" on the upper right of your browser window.

Interns. Awesomer still.

Nic is our intern chappie from Ol' Blighty. He bet that I wouldn't post the word "fanny" on our blog.

Here's Amelia and I apologize to her now for getting her in a crouch.

Ben has actually left us but I was behind on my intern posts so here he is. He came to us from Tor Books, believe it or not. Fare Thee Well, Olde Friend!

Jessica says this kind of post actually drives traffic away from the blog

but my Mom loves them. So just look at the five new books that have come in in the past week!! You can probably even find some of these at your local comic shop or bookstore any day now.

This photo is an actual aerial view of Tokyo. Well, all right, it's not, but you'd think it were considering how Moomin crazy Chris Butcher makes Japan seem. This picture is, in fact, a photo he took. I merely altered it to drive home a point. Pretty "trippy," eh?

A nice thing to do

So the kids at the Center of Cartoon Studies are having an ebay auction to raise money to defray costs of going to conventions and that sort of thing. C'mon you've got the holiday spirit!! Also, it's the cheapest way I can think of to get a diploma (left, by Ivan Brunetti). There's also an uncut sheet for the original Seth-design CCS brochure, a silk-screened Sammy Harkham, Anders Nilsen, Kevin Huizenga tour poster and a Ken Dahl Monsters promo silk-screen. Yes, awesome. For more info visit the student run web-store, I Know Joe Kimpel.

Yes, there are two events and two new Julie Doucet books launching this week.

It is also a double launch for Gigi Perron's "ELLE et moi," and an opening for an exhibit of Matryoshkas painted by various artists.

Then on Friday, the 7th, the D+Q store hosts the launch of 365 Days, and an art opening for a selection of her prints, which will be up at the store (211 Bernard W) until the end of January.
