On the eve of the Emerald City Comicon, the City of Seattle's official public affairs station will air a feature on Fantagraphics Books. The spot focuses on Fantagraphics resident curator Larry Reid examining the illustrious history of the Emerald City as the birthplace of alternative comix. It includes many wonderful works by distinguished local alternative cartoonists. In addition to the story on comix, the bookstore plays host to the entire "City Stream" episode. So if you haven't yet visited Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, this show will give you a pretty good look.
The program debuts this Thursday, March 3 at 7:00 PM on the Seattle Channel (channel 21 on local Comcast cable systems.) It repeats several times throughout the week, and can also be seen as streaming video on their website.
If you're in town for the convention, be sure to visit the bookstore, drop by our booth at the con – and don't miss the fabulous "Con Artists" bash at the Jewel Box in the Rendezvous on Saturday night! See you all soon.
