A Pilgrimage is in Order

To the new Fantagraphics store. Not sure when I'll get over there, but I have to check it out. I've missed....oh, the last 10 years of Fantagraphics.

Are you familiar with "Castle Waiting" by Linda Medley? If you like quiet, everday sorts of stories in a fairytale setting, i highly recommend it. Fantagraphics kicked off their acquisition of the title by putting out a really lovely hardcover collection of all the issues put out pre-Fantagraphics. We're now up to issue #3 of new stuff -- just came out this past week.

Here's my favorite endorsement of the series. Do you remember meeting Matt Winslow when you came with Dr. John to a lunch gathering of Mythopoeic book group people the other year? Matt says his 2 oldest boys (in their early teens) were recently looking forward both to an upcoming viewing of "The Terminator" *and* the next "Castle Waiting" issue.

If teenaged boys like a fairytale-flavored book, you know it does sincerely rock. Or else they are rather unusual boys.

I'll definitely check it out.

I was going to suggest the same thing as wrdnrd.

I've been a Castle Waiting fan for a long time. And now the first series is in a nice hardcover.

I'll have to look for issue #3. I back-ordered #2 from the Fantagraphics store and it took a long time getting into my hands.


Peace and smiles :)
