Just saw on the Fantagraphics website that the third issue of Jordan Crane’s personal anthology has gone on pre-order. After the cancellation of Sammy Harkham’s Crickets series by Drawn and Quarterly (due to changes in Diamonds minimum order system), I feared that Uptight had gone the same way. Luckily it’s not the case.
Jordan Crane’s Uptight anthology has been published by Fantagraphics since 2006. Averaging at one 20 page issue per year, it makes reading it a bit like watching a car chase in annual 60 second slow motion clips. Nonetheless his work is amazing and he’s one of my favourite comic book artists and printmakers. Check out www.reddingk.com for more of his comics, books, mini comics and prints.
