Something we can both enjoy: Two new colour Moomins, comin' atcha!

We're all pretty excited around here about our new colour Moomin books. They are just the perfect size for tiny hands, and the strips lend themselves to colour better than any of us could have hoped. So it looks like we're going to be rolling these bad-boys out just as quickly as we can. Here's two more to introduce to you!

First up: Moomin Falls in Love! One of my favourite things about Moomin is that everyone is always falling in love, but it's not often the central element of the story, making this one of my favs. Take a look:

OoooOOOo endpapers!

And we've also got Moomin Builds a House! Little My is a prominent character in this story, so there is even more tomfoolery than normal. Man, I love these guys.

OoooOOOo endpapers!

Watch for these beauts early in March. In the meantime, why not purchase the first two in the colour Moomin series to put under the holiday tree for your beloved monsters? At just $9.99 they might even be stocking stuffer material. Moominvalley Turns Jungle and Moomin's Winter Follies are available now at finer books stores everywhere!

Free Comic Book Day 2013!

Saturday, May 4th! Go ahead and write "take a walk to local comic shop" on your calendars now, people, because FCBD is THE BEST. This year we have two extra special treats for you:

First up, a preview of Marble Season by Gilbert Hernandez! Ever wonder what it was like to grow up in the Hernandez clan? This semi-autobiographical peek into Gilbert's childhood seems about as close as you'll ever get.

And because we love to spoil you, we've also got this preview of next fall's Pippi book, Pippi Fixes Everything, by Astrid Lindgren and Ingrid Vang Nyman. Rob Clough has a great review of the first Pippi book (Pippi Moves In) here, along with our other Enfant titles, including the new colour Moomin books that were featured in last year's FCBD comic.

Hooray for Free Comic Book Day! Hooray for Gilbert, Astrid and Ingrid!

D+Q in Montreal: Holiday Puces POP this weekend!

This weekend, from Friday Dec 14 to Sunday Dec 16, get your Christmas shopping done in style at the holiday edition of Puces Pop. This one takes place at the all-too-appropriately-named Saint-Enfant-Jesus du Mile-End (Saint Baby Jesus of Mile End) Church, just a few steps away from the Main at 5035 Rue Saint-Dominique.

This year's Holiday Puces has a kick-off party on the Friday night, with drinks, DJs, shopping, and no cover charge. It continues over Saturday and Sunday, from 11 to 6 each day. We'll have a whole bunch of beautiful books from current and previous years. New and notable on that list: Don't Go Where I Can't Follow by Anders Nilsen!

With over ninety vendors exhibiting beautiful artisanal goods, tons of bacon jerky, beautiful knitted socks, and us, you'd better have a good excuse to skip out on this one, Montrealers. Friday December 14 through Sunday December 16, at the Saint-Enfant-Jesus Church, 5035 Rue Saint-Dominique between St-Joseph and Laurier. 

P.S. Keep refreshing our social media outlets (and Pop Montreal's) - we'll be announcing a giveaway through their Facebook page later on today.

How much do we love Anders Nilsen? THIS MUCH!!!!

Anders will be at Boneshaker Books in Minneapolis this Saturday at 7PM to launch the new edition of his memoir, Don't Go Where I Can't Follow.  He will be presenting a slide show, and signing books. Anders spoke to his hometown paper the Minneapolis Star Tribune as well as the Minnesota Daily and the MinnPost.

Everything Anders does and creates is subtle and beautiful.  Julia and I refer to this past year since Big Questions came out, as the year of Anders' quietly stunning success. He won the Lynd Ward Prize, the Ignatz, he's up for the top price at Angouleme for his L'Association book and well, he's Anders, the nicest, most charming and affable guy ever.  It's an honor to work with him.

Miriam Katin's Studio

There are a few amazing things in this photo.  Firstly, We Are On Our Own was just published in South Korea, translated by Ha-kyu Lee. South Korea is one of our best best translation markets. They sent her this care package of her book, bookmarks, and tshirts. Secondly, Miriam's studio! Who doesnt love to see where the cartoonists work. You'll be hearing a lot about Miriam on this blog, as her book Letting It Go is coming out in Spring 2013!

Here's another shot of the book in stores sent in by Ha-kyu Lee.

John Porcellino & Ron Rege Jr at SAW!

John P will be at SAW in Gainesville, Florida for a 5-day workshop! Check out what went down last year! I just love that things like this are possible.

And it doesn't stop there, be sure to check out Ron Rege Jr's workshop the next week. You should really just take a two week vacation and do both. Floridians are lucky.

Happy Birthday, Los Bros Hernandez! This Saturday in Seattle.

Our good friends in Seattle are throwing a party this Saturday for Gilbert, Jaime & Mario, with Genevieve Castree performing! Hells bells, people, don't miss it. Much more exciting than my cookie swap plans.

RIP Mort

"I have hundreds of Bazooka Joe strips in a binder in my library. I’m never going to reread those."--Seth

More here at Sequential!

{I know that image is terrible but I'm waiting for Seth to send me his binder.}

Interns are awesome and so are these Kate Beaton Calendars!

This Fall we have been lucky to be delighted with the wry presence of intern, fellow American, recent McGill graduate Malcolm Macrae-Gibson who is the best, and not just because he listens to me read the tweets of Stacey Nightmayer out loud to the office. (ok, not all of them, i draw the line at a few!)

Here Malcolm is holding our hot little Kate Beaton calendars, the literary-centric There She Blows and the pop culture-centric Beethoven's Birthday Party. In stores and for sale at $14.95, buy these babies for your friends and family, and you won't go wrong! People like the funny!
