We’re still catching up from New York Comic Con this past weekend, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t call your attention to the “Good News/Bad News” sale going on over at Fantagraphics Books. They’re currently in the process of relocating their warehouse and shipping facilities. As a result, no orders will be shipped between October 7 and October 20. To make things even worse, once those orders ship, they will be going out via the slowest rates available—in the United States, that means Media Mail.
To add a little sweetness to that sour, Fantagraphics will be shipping all domestic orders placed during that period for FREE (50% off shipping for international orders) and you can use the coupon code GOODNEWS at checkout to get a nice 20% off your entire order.
What to pick up? Well, check out their politics section, where you can pick up titles like:
- Freedom Fries: the Political Art of Steve Brodner by (duh) Steve Brodner
- King: A Comics Biography volumes 1–3 by Ho Che Anderson
- Palestine by Joe Sacco
- Safe Area Gorazde by Joe Sacco
- War’s End: Profiles from Bosnia 1995–96 by Joe Sacco
And if you check out the some of the other areas, you can find titles like:
- Kafka by Robert Crumb & David Zane Mairowitz
- Rocky volumes 1–2 by Martin Kellerman
Of course, you aren’t limited to just nonfiction comics titles. There are plenty of great titles still available from the site, including many fiction comics and nonfiction prose books that are worth checking out. But order soon, the offer expires October 20.
