Fantagraphics needs your help


Underground/alternative comic book publisher Fantagraphics is putting out a plea for survival. The company that houses such greats as R. Crumb, Los Bros Hernandez (of Love and Rockets fame), and the visionary author of Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth, Chris Ware, is in deep financial trouble.

I know that much of what Fantagraphics puts out is challenge-bait for public and school libraries, but anyone in charge of a large public collection should at least devote some time to their website to see if you can justify purchasing a few of these ground-breaking titles. If nothing else, buy yourself something.
