Fantagraphics Underground (FU) Press


Fantagraphics Underground Press (FU Press) is a new micro imprint of Fantagraphics Books that deals with projects that fit in between the self-publishing and mainstream markets. Beginning in October 2014 FU Press will not only offer, but help promote, titles that inhabit the rarified air of the small press and niche markets.


Press Release

Fantagraphics Books is launching Fantagraphics Underground Press (FU Press), a new micro imprint that will publish books and print projects appealing to a smaller, more rarefied readership. The Fantagraphics mission has always Jonah Kinigstein's The Emperor's New Clothes: The Tower of Babel in the "Art" World been to publish comics and cartoons that take risks and reflect the uncompromising vision of the artist. It’s also crucial for us to put out books that will survive in an unforgiving mass market, but, what about work that doesn’t quite fit into our standard business model? Work by relatively unknown cartoonists that’s innovative, quirky, idiosyncratic, oddball, experimental, or downright crazy, work by established cartoonists that’s simply off-kilter or too obscure to sustain a mass market release, or archival work by significant cartoonists who have been overlooked and that might otherwise be short-shrifted due to the commercial demands of the traditional marketplace.
