A shopper’s guide to Fantagraphics’ Hangover Sale


I missed this amid all the holiday hijinks, but comics publisher par excellence Fantagraphics is holding a New Year’s Hangover Sale that ends at midnight tonight. Everything they sell is 20-percent off. And if you like comics, chances are they’ve got something you’ll want to buy.

Love classic strips? Can’t go wrong with The Complete Peanuts, Popeye, Dennis the Mennis or Krazy & Ignatz.

A fan of shoujo manga or Scott Pilgrim? Give Jaime Hernandez and the Love & Rockets Library a shot, starting with Maggie the Mechanic and The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S.

Prefer your comics on the hard-boiled side? Take aim at killer crime comics like West Coast Blues, Why Are You Doing This? or They Found the Car.

Just want some laffs? Yuk it up with Maakies, Tales Designed to Thrizzle or Angry Youth Comix.

And of course, if you wanna find out what this whole “alternative comics” thing is all about, there’s no better place to start than the books of Chris Ware or Daniel Clowes.

Enter in the discount code “HANGOVER”, and you’ve got great comics coming to you at bargain prices. Just make sure to do it today!
