Mini NYC Tour Next Week

September 29, 2017

Julia Wertz is in town promoting her amazing new book Tenements, Towers & Trash, and she’s invited me to celebrate with her. Also, I’m doing an event at Strand Books for the newest Best American Comics, guest-edited by Ben Katchor. Here is a schedule of events:

Monday, October 2nd: Panels to the People at Word Brooklyn with Julia, Lauren Barnett and me. Sorry, all you extraordinary people not on Facebook (how do you manage?), but I can only find a link there. But it’s at Word Brooklyn in Greenpoint,126 Franklin St, Brooklyn, New York 11222, from seven to nine.

Wednesday, October 4th: Best American Comics at Strand Books with Bill KartalopoulosKim Deitch, Eli Valley, and Josh Bayer.
Thursday, October 5th: I’m not going to be part of this but I’ll be in attendance, and it will be a great show of very funny cartoonists: Tenements, Towers & Trash Book launch with Julia, Liana Finck and Emily Flake at Powerhouse Books
Saturday, October 7th: Lit Crawl Brooklyn with Julia, Leslie Stein and me at Die Stammkneipe, 710 Fulton St. 6-7 (I can’t find any media about this yet but let’s just all trust that it will happen, ok?)
Tenements, Towers & Trash is a beautiful, intricate, funny, treasure trove of a book about New York City, come and see for yourself!
Also, in case you missed it, here is the conclusion of my Paris Review Series.

This weekend I’ll be bussing down to Bethesda, Maryland to be part of the Small Press Expo on Saturday. I’ll be selling portraits, signing books at the Uncivilized Books table (H1-2) and at 4:30 PM will be in a panel moderated by Whit Taylor called World Building From Reality, with Ethan Rilly, Noah Van Sciver and Chris Kim.

Then on I’ll hop on a train back to Brooklyn for Sunday’s Brooklyn Book Festival, also at the Uncivilized Books table. At noon Ariel Gore will moderate a panel with me, Thi Bui and Julia Alekseyeva, called Mothers and Other Monsters.

With all the busing to and fro I’ll miss all of the festival parties, so I’ll be making a party of my table confinement. In the afternoons I’ll introduce a new, experimental artform which I call “drunk portraiture.”

Also, in case you haven’t seen it on social media, I’ve been doing a weekly murder serial comic for the Paris Review called Little Red and Big Bad.


This Monday (8.5.17)

August 5, 2017

I’ll be presenting a comics slideshow with Nat Towsen’s Downtown Variety Hour at the UCB Theatre in NYC. I’m pleased to be part of their 50th show.
