Among Fantagraphics’ catalog are graphic novels by Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, Joe Sacco, and Daniel Clowes.

“Using the catchline ‘We won’t sell out, so we need YOU to buy in’, the publisher called on readers and fans to help finance 39 graphic novels and books in its spring summer 2014 catalogue,” The Guardian reports.
