Fantagraphics releases Another HIstory of Art next week
This May, Fantagraphics will publish CHARTWELL MANOR, cartoonist Glenn Head’s harrowing graphic memoir that details his two years at the now-defunct Mendham, NJ, boarding school run by a serial sexual and physical abuser of young boys.
Considered a cartooning master of the macabre, Richard Sala’s comics feature eerie, atmospheric settings, creepy characters, over-the-top slasher violence, and dark-humored camp — all rendered in his lush watercolor and pen & ink style. Sala passed away on May 7, 2020, leaving behind a substantial oeuvre of comics and graphic novels. Fantagraphics will release his final comics collection, Poison Flowers & Pandemonium, on May 4, 2021.
There’s a phenomenon in stories that we call ‘Early Installment Weirdness.’ Keep that in mind… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Love and Rockets #1 awaits!
