Announcement: Love & Rockets moves to annual book format!
LOVE AND ROCKETS MOVES TO ANNUAL, BOOK-SIZE FORMAT IN 2008
Seattle, WA —- After 25 years of being published in a traditional saddle-stitched magazine format released three or more times a year — first in the magazine-sized VOLUME I (50 issues, 1982-1996) and then in the comic book sized VOLUME II (20 issues, 2000-2007) – the award-winning LOVE AND ROCKETS comic book series will go on hiatus effective immediately and return next summer in its third incarnation, as a series of all-original, graphic novel-length releases.
Each annual volume will comprise at least 100 pages of all-new comics, split evenly between its creators, Gilbert, Jaime (and sometimes Mario) Hernandez. (The 21st issue of Volume 2, announced in #20, will now become part of Vol. III #1.)

Former Fallout Records owner and long-time Friend of Fantagraphics (and occasional employee back in the day) Tim Hayes is opening up a bar called Tigertail this next Friday in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. If you know what's good for you, you'll be there. Besides a sake menu and what's sure to be a great jukebox, the works of Daniel Johnston (from Hayes' collection) will be up on display! Seattle Weekly has more here.
