Fantagraphics is publishing brand new work in their Free Comic Book Day from cartoonists Noah Van Sciver (Fante Bukowski), Simon Hanselmann (Megahex), Jason (Los Cat), Ed Piskor (Hop Hop Family Tree), Liz Suburbia (Sacred Heart), Dash Shaw (Cosplayers), Richard Sala (The Bloody Cardinal), Emil Ferris (My Favorite Thing is Monsters), Eric Haven (UR), Josh Cotter (Nod Away) Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf), Cathy Malkasian (Eartha), Ron Regé Jr. (The Cartoon Utopia), Anya Davidson (Band for Life), and Graham Chaffee (Good Dog) and others – as well as a new Pepe The Frog strip by his creator Matt Furie.
And you won’t be seeing them anywhere else. Richard Sala’s upcoming book, The Bloody Cardinal is about a master criminal thought to have perished in an asylum fire long ago. However, he left behind a journal which has been tied to a string of violent, unsolved murders.And for World’s Greatest Cartoonists, Sala created an exclusive excerpt from that journal that won’t appear in the book itself. While Noah Van Sciver has an exclusive Fante Bukowski strip just for this comic.
Here’s a peek at what’s to hit on May 6th.
