Fantagraphics Exhibit

I had a great time at the Fantagraphics exhibit opening last night. The place was packed but, since I don't know the comics field too well, I have no idea who all was there. The work looks great...but definitely needs a look when the gallery is quiet and you can actually read everything.

FANTAGRAPHICS 1976 - 2006
Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators, September 27–October 21, 2006

This massive art exhibition features over 100 original pieces by dozens of authors published by Fantagraphics over the last 30 years, including Daniel Clowes, Gilbert Hernandez, Jaime Hernandez, Chris Ware, Peter Bagge, Jim Woodring, Joe Sacco, Carol Tyler, Ivan Brunetti, Tony Millionaire, Roberta Gregory, Bill Griffith, Richard Sala, Bob Fingerman, Steve Brodner, David B., Kim Deitch, Al Columbia, Drew Friedman, Kaz, Frank Frazetta and many others.
I did get to spend some time with Anita Kunz, Steve Brodner, Brian Cronin, Yuko Shimizu, David Hollenbach, Arkady Roytman, and others. A real treat was getting to meet Marcos Chin, who seems like a sweetheart. Apparently he and Yuko share a studio -- both do such amazing work, it must be a sight to see them working together.

More details on the Fantagraphics blog.
Update: A more knowledgeable report at The Beat.

Sorry about the cell phone pictures. Top: Everyone. Bottom: Anita Kunz and Steve Brodner.

The game has a lot of LOTRO Gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much Lord Of The Rings Gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can go to buy LOTRO Gold in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the cheap Lord Of The Rings Gold you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone.
