Join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore on Saturday, August 13 for the debut of the Complete Neat Stuff by legendary Seattle cartoonist Peter Bagge. A limited number of advance copies of this two volume, slip case edition will be available for the artist to sign between 6:30 and 8:00 PM.
Neat Stuff includes early work by Bagge introducing a cast of iconic characters that would populate his comix for decades. The Bradleys became a template for the dysfunctional American family, influencing the work of artists like Matt Groening, Mike Judge, Dana Gould, and countless others. This book collects the classic comix serial that ran from 1985 through 1989, setting the stage for work that would not only define his career, but document Seattle’s 1990s pop culture phenomenon for the world to see. This deluxe edition is a great companion to the two volume Complete Eightball, collecting work by Bagge’s contemporary Daniel Clowes.
Celebrate the release of this extraordinary publication with one of Seattle’s most accomplished cartoonists on Saturday, August 13. This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts throughout the historic neighborhood, including the popular Trailer Park Drag Strip drag show at the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) only minutes from downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206-658-0110.
