Delays expected, start your holiday shopping now!

It’s officially Spooky Season and we are haunted, not by ghosts, but by the specter of holiday shipping delays. Like last year, we’re facing COVID-related supply and labor shortages, which means books are taking longer to get to us and longer still to get to you. On top of that, we’re expecting delays with our shipping services. So if you want to get your loved ones awesome Fantagraphics books and swag for the holidays, start your shopping now!
