My favorite book publisher, Fantagraphics, opened its first bookstore on October 21. I'm going to check it out when I attend my art opening at Roq La Rue on November 10.
The store will contain everything Fantagraphics has in print (as well as Eros Comix), and will also house our soon-to-be-legendary DAMAGED ROOM, featuring heavily discounted and often out-of-print books unavailable anywhere else.
The space also has room for art exhibitions, which we'll have more news about very soon.

In other words, start making your Seattle vacation plans NOW, and if you have friends in Seattle that might be interested, please pass on the news.
Here's the 911: FANTAGRAPHIC BOOKS 1201 South Vale Street Seattle, WA 98108 Mon. - Sat 11:30 - 8 Sun 11:30 - 5 206-658-0110

All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady.

The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots.
