Larry Reid, manager of the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery was highlighted in the GIFTED insert of the latest issue of The Stranger (Vol. 23, No. 12). He gives you all you need to know about shopping, eating and fun fun fun in Georgetown this holiday season. From The Complete Peanuts collection we're publishing to 'seven-inch slabs by the Stranglers' ("Golden brown, texture like sun…") available in the other half of the store known as Georgetown Records, there is plenty to stuff stockings with, hand over at Channukah or leave on a friend's desk as a secret gift.
We've got music and books at the store but what about holiday movies? Larry recommends:
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? Well I'll be, that's showing at Pacific Place 11 this December 5th and other places around the country(a laRiffTrax;so you have been forewarned, jokes are a-coming). Also in the GIFTED guide was a few Fantagraphics books that are perfect gifts for "Neat Nerds". Forget those sassy, sexy underoos OR pair them (ha HA!) with 3 New Stories Dash ShaworPretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 by Trina Robbins, as pictured.
So pick up a copy of The Stranger for the full Larry Reid interview, stop by the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery for some sweet alternative comics (and a story or two from Larry!).
