The Hi-Fructose Store is packed with new items and deals, from big books to back issues. Below, read about the selections you shouldn’t miss right now.
Influential cartoonist Al Columbia has been a force in indie comics over the past two decades. His 240-page hardcover collection Pim & Francie is currently in the store. Published by Fantagraphics Books, this book collects comics, paintings, character designs, and more annotated by the artist and depicting the titular characters. Or as the publisher says, it’s “part alchemy, part art book, part storybook, part comic book, and part conceptual art from the pen of Al Columbia.”
Joan Cornellà’s art graced the cover of Hi-Fructose Vol. 47, with an accompanying, in-depth feature story to match. You can get the issue with a copy of the Cornellà book Mox Nox in a new bundle in the store. Mox Nox, also published by Fantagraphics Books, was first released in 2013 and is packed with full-color, single-page narratives in the unsettling, hilarious style of the artist.
There are also two Hi-Fructose Magazine issue bundles to note: The 8-issue library bundle collects Vol. 45, Vol. 42, Vol. 41, Vol. 40, Vol. 39, Vol. 38, Vol. 35, and Vol. 34.
