We Were Reading Fante Bukowski Digitally Before It Was Cool


One of today’s most prestigious and prolific cartoonists, Noah Van Sciver, is back. You can download and (unironically) love his new book on your own personal reading device starting today.








fante1Noah Van Sciver’s latest graphic novella, Fante Bukowski, drops in on the life of the self-styled, aspiring young writer as he delusively makes his way to literary fame and fortune . . . one drink at a time. Living in a cheap hotel, consorting with the debased and downtrodden, searching for that golden idea that will rocket him to the success he yearns for as the great American novelist, and to get respect from his father once and for all. But, there’s just one problem: Fante Bukowski has no talent.

This latest book from emerging talent Van Sciver is another unique character study (along with last spring’s Saint Cole and 2012’s The Hypo) that mines the author’s interest in pathos and the human condition. It can be yours today through comiXology and Sequential.
