A brief overview of Philip Guston's time in St. Louis—including scans of an uncovered letter detailing an important decision by the artist—has just been posted to our Texts page.

Hooray! We just added an excellent selection of new art by Daniel Clowes!
To celebrate Fantagraphics' recent release of the stunning Jaime Hernandez Studio Edition book, we've just added a new holiday selection of Hernandez Love and Rockets panel pages to the website—the last available from the original magazine-format run, and all offered for the first time.
Also, please note that the majority of original art currently for sale—including recently added art by Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine (the only single pages available from his last several comics), and entire stories by the great Julie Doucet (whose complete Dirty Plotte will be released next year)—will only be available through the end of the year. So if you've been on the fence about anything, now's the time to act. Email us to inquire, and happy holidays!
An interview with pioneering underground art collector Eric Sack was just posted to our Texts page.
We've just added a stellar selection of artwork by Adrian Tomine to the website: individual pages from his great "A Brief History of the Art Form Known as ‘Hortisculpture,'" initially published in Optic Nerve #12 (2011) and collected in the landmark book Killing and Dying. These beautiful originals represent a very rare opportunity as they are the only examples from the artist's last several books to be offered individually, and because of the story structure, each is particularly nice on its own and functions perfectly as a self-contained artwork.
Wow, check out Daniel Clowes' newly updated website, beautifully designed by the hugely talented Jonathan Bennett!
Look for an update to the website Monday, August 14, which will include great new art from Daniel Clowes, Jaime Hernandez, and a biggie from Adrian Tomine!
Our old pal Glenn Bray has put together an incredibly rich tome on the great early 20th-century political cartoonist Art Young (though the designation "political cartoonist" is much too limiting for his achievements), who did stunningly trenchant work for The Masses and many other venues: To Laugh That We May Not Weep: The Life & Times of Art Young (Fantagraphics Books). Many of the beautiful reproductions are shot from original art in Bray's unparalleled collection. In conjunction with the publication of the book, Françoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman have penned an excellent piece on Young for the New Yorker.
Jaime Hernandez: Hall of Famer! Huge congratulations to Jaime Hernandez on his very well-deserved induction into the Will Eisner Comics Hall of Fame in San Diego Friday evening. The emotional attachment so many thousands of readers have had to his moving stories over the last thirty-seven years is truly incredible.

Todd Hignite Comic Art Launches
We are pleased to announce the launch of our website with an impressive selection of never-before-offered original artwork from contemporary comic greats Daniel Clowes, Julie Doucet, Jaime Hernandez, and Adrian Tomine. Clowes is represented by important examples from throughout his career, including brand-new artwork; Doucet with a painted cover and rare complete stories from her legendary comic Dirty Plotte; Hernandez by new work, including the covers for issue #1 of the recent Love and Rockets re-launch; and Tomine―amazingly―by the entire artwork from his most recent book, Killing and Dying.
Please check back often as we plan to regularly add new art by these artists, as well as information regarding upcoming projects, exhibitions, and publications of note.
