Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beasts! is a classic mythological menagerie, comprised only of creatures that were thought at one time to actually exist, depicted by about a hundred of the most acclaimed artists and cartoonists coming from the most avant-garde ambits of the art world. The Beasts project has fired the imaginations of luminaries such as Tony Millionaire, Souther Salazar, Jeff Soto, Dave Cooper, Tim Biskup, Seonna Hong, Jeremy Fish, James Jean, and Jay Ryan, who will present never-before-seen art completely original to this book, superbly laid out in breathtaking, full-color two-page spreads. Beasts! collects many of the best visual artists from the worlds of comics, skateboarding, rock graphics, science-fiction, children's books, commercial and fine art. The book is conceived and designed by Jacob Covey, lead art director for Fantagraphics (Dennis the Menace, Popeye, Willie & Joe, etc.) and a well-regarded designer and artist in his own right in the Northwest rock and arts community. Other contributors include: Amanda Visell, Anders Nilsen, Andrew Brandou, Art Chantry, Brian Ralph, Bwana Spoons, Dave Cooper, Deth P. Sun, Esther Pearl Watson, Jason, Jesse LeDoux, Johnny Ryan, Jordan Crane, Keith Shore, Little Friends of Printmaking, Marc Bell, Martin Cendreda, Martin Ontiveros, Mat Brinkman, R. Kikuo Johnson, Richard Sala, Sammy Harkham, Seonna Hong, Stan Sakai, S. britt, Stella Im Hultberg, Steven Weissman, Tom Gauld, Tyler Stout and many more.

Synopsis:

Captivating, wistful, funny and truly extraordinary—a Bestiary of the traditionally fantastic for the dreary twenty-first century where imagination and wonder have been formularised as crypto-zoology... a vivid package of sheer fantasy and artistic excellence. (Win Wiacek, Now Read This!)The Best Cryptozoo Art Book of 2007. (Cryptomundo.com)Really kick-ass, fun and well-done. (Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter)Another stroke of genius from the folks at Fantagraphics. (Boston Globe)

Synopsis:

Winner, Editorial Merit, HOW Magazine Design Awards: After selling out two hardcover editions, Beasts! Book One returns in a beautiful new softcover edition.
