Feiffer & Fantagraphics Make the NYTBR

Congratulations to Jules Feiffer -- creator of many things, including the strip "Explainers," which ran in the Village Voice from 1956 to 1966 -- and Fantagraphics Books, which published a book collection of Explainers
earlier this year.

In what I think is an unprecedented review, a book of comics has made the front page of The New York Times Book Review -- David Kamp on Explainers. I'm sure Fantagraphics' publicity folks (who are probably half of someone, knowing the size of many comics companies) will be exceptionally happy this weekend.

And doubly so, since there's also a full-page review of several "Love & Rockets" collections by the Brothers Hernandez -- Jaime's The Education of Hopey Glass and everybody's Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 and Amor Y Cohetes -- by Douglas (Reading Comics) Wolk on page 25. Fantagraphics owns the Times this weekend...
