Come on down to the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival in Williamsburg this Saturday, November 10, 12-7 pm. I co-organize this every year and this one’s our best yet. PictureBox will be downstairs at tables 1 and 2, right when you come in.
PictureBox is debuting THREE new publications with author signings.
1)The ZZZZZ Series and Other Stories by Michael McMillan. An oversize 24-page publication in conjunction with McMillan’s exhibition, which I also curated, at Tomato House, Brooklyn (opening Friday night!). This is McMillan’s first solo publication in 40 years, lovingly printed in a full color edition of 1000.
2) Infinidick by Family Sohn. Thousands of years of human history has led us to this point: A collection, with new material, of the beloved husband-and-wife comic strip, long serialized on PBox, that sheds light on important issues from genital utility to feelings of unusual love. 48 pages, signed and numbered two-color risograph edition of 300.
3) DNA Failure: British Weapon Comics by Jon Chandler, Leon Sadler and Stefan Sadler. Three cartoonists telling interlocking stories from a single universe. This is work defined by keen observation and an attention to the ongoing movements of objects and personalities. In other words, a fully realized cartoon world. What makes it unique is that the sensibilities at work here are fearless in their ideas. Essential, highly advanced comic-making. 96 page, softcover edition of 1000.
We will have excellent things from the usual crew, as well as fresh imports, including, but not limited to: Captain Goodvibes: An enormous and enormously awesome collection of 1970s Australian surf/hippy comic strip. Must be seen to be believed. Bob Peak: The definitive monograph on the iconic all-consuming pimp of illustration. AND: CF’s beer design, pristine Gothic Blimp Works from 1969, and some fiiiiine zines.
12:30 - 2: Michael McMillan and Matthew Thurber
2-3:30: Family Sohn
3:30-5:00 CF and Jonny Negron
See you there.
