Charismatic cartoonist and counterculture maven Dame Darcy will grace Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery with her presence on Saturday, March 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. She will present an acoustical music performance and sign copies of her popular comic book Meat Cake as well as her new graphic novel Gasoline.

Currently in its 17th issue, Dame Darcy’s Meat Cake is a visionary blend of gothic horror, Victorian fantasy, and punk romance rendered with the artist’s singular graphic sensibility. Published by Seattle-based Fantagraphics Books, Meat Cake has developed a devoted following among a dramatically diverse readership. Her recently released graphic novel, Gasoline, is a post-apocalyptic gothic fairy tale of suspense, heartbreak, and redemption.

Dame Darcy has achieved national recognition through her creative associations with counterculture personalities including Courtney Love, Lisa Crystal Carver, Thurston Moore, Tori Amos, and Alan Moore, among countless others. Currently residing in Portland, OR, she remains active in visual arts, comics, video, film and music.

Dame Darcy will perform on vocals and banjo with her acoustic trio, followed by a reception and book signing. Patrons will also enjoy the exhibition of original art by the MAD geniuses behind Harvey Kurtzman’s Humbug. Admission is free. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at Airport Way S. in Seattle’s colorful Georgetown arts community. Open daily, 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sunday until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110. This event coincides with the lively “Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack” featuring visual and performing arts presentation throughout the historic neighborhood.

HUMBUG 3/7/09 part four
Written by Jason Miles | Filed under Humbug 4 Mar 2009 9:00 AM

Look at this!

LOOK AT IT!

Closer!

CLOSER!    

 (Click on the image above. Seriously. Click it for the detail.)

How did he do this!?!     It's not scratchboard and it's not ink.     Even resident alchemist Ted Jouflas doesn't know how Arnold Roth drew (?) this savage portrait of Mike Wallace from HUMBUG #5. 

 Look at it!     Or don't look at it on the stupid computer.     See the real thing this Saturday March 7th at the Fantagraphics Bookstore in gorgeous Georgetown Washington and help us celebrate the release of HUMBUG our latest pièce de résistance!

The Politics of Stupid, indeed!

Back in those heady 1990s, the guys at our warehouse seemingly had a lot of time on their hands. To wit: these tapes, which have been semi-legendary in inner-Fanta circles for years. Former warehouse staffer Dave Holmes -- also the front man in the legendary Seattle band The Fall-Outs -- routinely entertained his fellow warehouse coworkers with prank phone calls to local radio talk show host Susan Powter. Somehow, Susan never seemed to catch on to the joke. Dave always used the names of his fellow coworkers for the calls, and even adopts a fairly impressive Australian accent when he calls in as "Martin" -- a nod to our Aussie warehouse asst. mgr. Martin Bland (also one of Seattle's best drummers, for bands like Monkeywrench, Bloodloss and Lubricated Goat, not to mention his amazing sound experiments). I haven't heard these tapes in years but listening again now, they're as funny as ever.

Just how bad is the economy?

Even Matt Groening can get fired. Stupid, stupid L.A. Weekly. He's your Feiffer.

There was a reason for this polaroid caption (I mean, besides the obvious, anyway), but I no longer remember it. Johnny Ryan and Peter Bagge, circa 2001.
