Graphic novels combine the visual punch of film with the visceral thrill of potential paper cuts. Flex thrilled fingers with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of comics purchased in-store or online from Fantagraphics Books in Georgetown. Contrary to the choking capes and chafing spandex of typical superhero comics, Fantagraphics Books publishes independent graphic novels by award-winning authors and artists. Comfortably crack the spines of new releases such as The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec ($24.99), hardcover collections of classic serials such as Peanuts ($49.95), or deluxe editions of Fantagraphics's lauded funny books such as Ghost World ($39.99). Its Seattle retail location shelters exclusive merchandise, special events, and the Damaged Room, where slightly worn and often out-of-print books are prepared for discounted purchasing with training holograms controlled by Professor X.
