FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS IS ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT. CONTINUE OUR LEGACY BY HELPING TO FINANCE OUR SPRING-SUMMER SEASON, AND BE A PART OF THE COMPANY THAT HAS PUBLISHED MORE GREAT CARTOONISTS THAN ANY PUBLISHER IN THE HISTORY OF COMICS.

2013 has been a particularly hard year for all of us at Fantagraphics Books. Earlier in the year, one of our founding partners, Kim Thompson, was diagnosed with lung cancer and died four and a half months later, on June 19. Because Kim was such an active part of our company, his death has had repercussions — emotionally, of course, but financially as well. Kim edited our European graphic novel line and as a result of his illness, 13 of his books scheduled for the Spring-Summer season had to be cancelled or postponed, representing the loss of nearly a third of that season. Our fixed costs stayed the same —because they’re fixed— but the income 13 books would’ve generated was lost, disrupting our cash flow, and leaving us in a tight spot. Many, if not most of them, will be re-scheduled (Jacques Tardi’s Run Like Crazy, Run Like Hell is scheduled for July 2014, for example) but in the meantime, we’ve suffered a severe shortfall that will impede our ability to produce next season’s books. That’s why we’re asking our faithful readers and new converts alike to help us recoup — and help finance our next season’s books. The money you contribute will go toward production, design, marketing, and printing our books.

OUR NEXT SEASON: April-August 2014

Our Spring-Summer season comprises 39 books by a stellar line-up of cartoonists. We’re biased, but we think it’s possibly our best ever. There are a number of books from names familiar to longtime Fantagraphics readers — do Peter Bagge, Dan Clowes, Joe Sacco, Drew Friedman, Michael Kupperman, Jim Woodring, Don Rosa, Tony Millionaire, or Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez ring a bell? —not to mention any number of other names that could anchor a comics Hall of Fame: Charles Schulz, Steve Ditko, Simon & Kirby, Hal Foster, Carl Barks, Floyd Gottfredson, L.B. Cole, Jacques Tardi, Joihn Severin, S. Clay Wilson, Wally Wood, and more. We also have one of our strongest seasons of original graphic novels ever, including new greaphic novels from Olivier Schrauwen, Simon Hanselmann, Esther Pearl Watson, Conor Stechschulte, Carol Swain, Lane Milburn, Eleanor Davis, and Ed Piskor.

From The Complete witzend to The Complete Eightball, Buddy Bradley to Megg & Mogg, and Don Rosa’s ducks to S. Clay Wilson’s pirates, not to mention new Peanuts, Disney, EC and Love and Rockets books, our 2014 lineup truly features The World’s Greatest Cartoonists.

And that's merely one publishing season of five months; we publish a virtual pantheon of cartoonists every season. This isn’t about a single cartoonist or book, but a critical mass of work by a group of utterly amazing intergenerational cartoonists. Help us keep this flag flying.

OUR BONAFIDES:

We don’t want to bore you with a list of what we’ve accomplished over the nearly four decades that we have been publishing. Many of you know who we are, but for those of you who don’t and those of you who have forgotten:

Gary Groth started co-publishing The Comics Journal, now the longest running print magazine about comics, in 1976. It was the beginning of a quixotic venture: Our immediate goals were to publish advocacy journalism and serious criticism, elevate the artistry of comics, and fight for creator rights. In short, to declare war on the creative mediocrity that dominated mainstream comics at the time as well as on the greedy corporate policies of the major companies. This was a time when artists had virtually no alternatives to Marvel and DC, when the underground comix distribution system had effectively collapsed, and when there were no alternative publishers.

After four or five years of encouraging independent and alternative cartoonists (and chastising mainstream comics companies), we took a big risk by putting our meager money where our enormous mouths were and published a number of emerging, then-unknown cartoonists in rapid succession throughout the 1980s: Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, Peter Bagge, Dan Clowes, and Joe Sacco, among others. We wanted to complement our criticism of the status quo by publishing comics that reflected our commitment to the art form. We also began publishing collections reprinting newspaper strips like Popeye and Prince Valiant, and collections of work by such artists as R. Crumb, Jules Feiffer, Ralph Steadman, Spain Rodriguez, Vaughn Bode, and many others in the underground counter-cultural tradition. We have been unwavering in our devotion to honoring the history of cartooning and championing the next generation(s) of cartoonists.

OUR MISSION:

In a world of throw-away art, filled to overflowing with comics that are trite, jejune, juvenile, and thoughtless, we’ve always wanted to publish comics that will endure, and have consistently published cartoonists who pushed the boundaries of the expressive possibilities of the form.

We have been waving the banner of cartooning for almost 40 years now, and our always believed in its artistic potential— in its power and subtlety, its vast capaciousness and intimate smallness, its ability to transport us to different worlds or express the human heart in conflict with itself, its ability to vivify political and historical events or reveal intimate autobiographical truths, its hilariously vulgar humor or its moving urban dramas.

THE PERENNIAL STRUGGLE

We are not going to bullshit you. If we were a big corporate publisher (or perhaps an avaricious smaller one), we’d have plenty of money to weather this temporary crisis. But, we’re not. Ours is and always has been an intrinsically difficult commercial enterprise, and we have survived due to a combination of good taste, sheer will, good luck, and reasonable business acumen. Still, it has never been easy. Fantagraphics has always been a guerilla publisher — lean and mean. In order to do what we do, we’ve always kept our overhead low and our lifestyle modest. No fancy offices, no limousines, no frills. We publish 100 books a year with a staff of 20 — a level of efficiency unheard of in corporate publishing. We work hard! We would never be mistaken for a bottom-line oriented, bean-counting commercial publisher with their blockbuster mentality, bloated budgets, and eagerness to pander to the lowest common denominator of consumers. We pride ourselves on taking risks, publishing work based on merit, and a commitment to serious artistic standards.

And we take pride in our professionalism; we are a publisher with a highly skilled, dedicated, and passionate staff, who shares our values and the values of our authors, believes deeply in what they do, and who edits, designs, and markets our author’s books with great love and care. We have created an infrastructure that is specifically tailored to sell the kinds of books we publish — great works of comics, art, and literature. But, this infrastructure costs money and it’s not always commensurate with the fluctuations of income from selling books.  Our fixed costs stay the same throughout the year: rent, payroll, health care premiums (over $1 million paid over the last 15 years!), utilities, etc.  But, the postponement or cancellation of so many books in a single season causes a precipitous drop in income.

We have always managed to weather the lean times. Sometimes wealthy patrons have loaned us money and on one or two occasions we have campaigned directly to you, our readers, pre-Kickstarter, and asked you to buy books when we were on the edge. We have throughout our history flirted with the idea of looking for an investor, but rejected it on principle: unless someone invested in us in the spirit of being a patron of the arts —highly unlikely— that way leads not only to madness but to the slow erosion of the core principles the company was founded on. (Does everyone remember what happened to Kitchen Sink Press when investors got their claws into them?).

We’ve has never existed comfortably within the traditional capitalist model— ruthlessly competitive, obsessed with growth and the endless accumulation of surplus money.  Our artistic values have always tempered our profitability. Fantagraphics has always managed to scrape by, but we realized that with the advent of crowd sourcing, we are in a position to make an end-run around the most brutish strictures of the marketplace and appeal directly to our readers. We now live in a world where artists as diverse as Spike Lee and Amanda Palmer can ask their fans to help finance their art and, in that same spirit, we are asking you to help us continue this quixotic enterprise.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Risks: It's possible that a few books will be late (we already buffered the delivery months!), because printing relies on cartoonists who deliver books on time, printers who use the correct materials and US customs to give our books a patriotic thumbs-up. If it happens, it won't be long and we'll stay in contact with you, dear reader.
