"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
A few weeks ago, stalwart altcomix publishing houses Top Shelf and Drawn & Quarterly announced big fall sales. Now it’s Fantagraphics’ turn, and the good folks behind everything from Love and Rockets to Krazy and Ignatz to Pim and Francie to Fuzz and Pluck are calling it their “Good News/Bad News Sale.” Bad news first: Due to a warehouse move, they’re unable to ship orders from now through October 20th, and they can’t do rush shipping of anything ordered during that period once they get going again. But the good news: 20% off every single book available on the Fantagraphics website, and free shipping to boot! And given that they publish everyone from Charles Schulz to Charles Burns and Steve Ditko to Steve Weissman, that’s very good news indeed.
