fantagraphics event!

Come meet the great Gilbert Hernandez, co-creator of Love and Rockets, at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this Saturday, March 13 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The evening will feature a book signing and exhibition of original artwork from Gilbert's amazing new book HIGH SOFT LISP. It also serves as the after-party for this weekend's Emerald City Comicon, so expect cameos by comics pros, complimentary beverages, and DJ Russ Fallout spinning classic punk rawk platters.
As one of the founding fathers of the alternative comics movement, Gilbert Hernandez needs no introduction to fans of the genre. Since launching the groundbreaking Love and Rockets series with his brother Jaime nearly three decades ago, his work has only become more relevant and influential. Don't miss this opportunity to pay respects to a master of the medium.
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at Airport Way S., just minutes from downtown Seattle on Metro bus route 131. Phone 206.658.0110. This event coincides with the colorful Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring challenging visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts community.
See you all on Saturday.
