What can be said about Fantagraphics Books that isn’t already known? One of the longest running publishers of independent and underground comics, graphic novels, strips and erotica in the world, Fanta has been a Seattle icon since the early 90s. Founded by Gary Groth and Mike Catron, along with Kim Thompson, Fantagraphics has published such comics luminaries as Daniel Clowes, Los Bros Hernandez, Peter Bagge, Jessica Abel and hundreds others—all while maintaining a strict level of quality and independence in an industry that has been consumed by “upper management.”
Simply put they are, “publishers of the world’s greatest cartoonists.”
And it’s true. There is no better example of a local art champion than
Fantagraphics Books and it is an honor to welcome them as a HOMETOWN HERO!!
