Fantagraphics Book Sale

Today through Sunday, Fantagraphics Books is having a great book sale at their store in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle 20-50% off!!
Here are a few of the books I highly recommend....

Unlovable by Esther Pearl Watson (**sooo funny you won't stop laughing**:
"Loosely based on a teenagers diary from the 1980s found in a gas-station bathroom, Unlovable details the sometimes ordinary, sometimes humiliating, often poignant and frequently hilarious exploits of underdog Tammy Pierce. This remarkably touching and funny graphic novel tells the first-person account of Tammys sophomore year in 1985, from the first day of school to winter break. "

Beasts! Vol. I & II (I bought Vol. I today at 50% off it's so brilliant I love crpytozoology)
"Beasts! is a classic mythological menagerie, comprised only of creatures that were thought at one time to actually exist, depicted by about a hundred of the most acclaimed artists and cartoonists coming from the most avant-garde ambits of the art world."

The Magic Bottle by Camille Rose Garcia:

Dan DeCarlo Vol. I & II (to learn more visit THIS previous post)

Unlovable is my favorite comic book I have EVER read. My friend Jillian and I always say, "I'll do it for a dollar!" or "whoah I'm slidin' here!".. and about a million other quotes from Unlovable!
