Los Angeles: Mark Todd at Gabba Gallery

Saturday, February 28th

Los Angeles, CA - The Gabba Galley of Los Angeles is happily hosting "Curate This", a show with over 20 of L.A.'s most unique talents. Among them is Mark Todd, who is showing several new original paintings along side people like Steven Wolkoff, and Peggy Zask. Known for his work in Blab!, Mark Todd is also the inspiring co-creator of the hilariously informative, Whatcha Mean, What's a Zine? with the beloved Esther Pearl Watson, cartoonist of Unlovable. They've since colaborated on other comics where individually drawn characters battle each other on the same page. 

Todd's crude cartooning style is a brought to life with humor in every inch of his work. Similarly his paintings have movement and life that is underscored by his ability to tell a story through expressions and brilliantly conceived imagery.

In 1953, in conjunction with the fiftieth anniversary of the World Series, legendary cartoonist Willard Mullin created images illustrating one of America's best-loved poems: Ernest Thayer's "Casey at the Bat." These images were then put on a series of drinking glasses that were given away as premiums at various major and minor league ballparks across America. The first set was issued on April 15, 1954, at the very first home game for the modern day Baltimore Orioles.

The illustrations by Mullin were for years thought to have been lost, but were found at an auction in 2002. They have been meticulously reproduced to create this stunning edition of "Casey at the Bat." This edition will include additional Mullin material like the "Fan's Alphabet" from 1953 and the poems "Iron Horse Lou" and "O Brooklyn, My Brooklyn" from 1947. With a preface by Yogi Berra and an essay on the history of both "Casey" and Mullin's images by noted baseball historian Tim Wiles, this edition of "Casey" is the most authentic ever produced. A keepsake for the ages.

Black River by Josh Simmons - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsJosh SimmonsComing Attractions 25 Feb 2015 4:50 PM

A bedraggled group of travelers finds an abandoned storehouse full of rations, fresh water, alcohol, and supplies. They celebrate, even as one of them uncovers a dead body in a dark corner.

Anyone who has read Josh Simmons' previous work can already guess that such celebration will be short-lived. In his latest full-length graphic novel, Black River, Simmons takes us to a post-apocalyptic world of desperation, survival of the most brutal, and chaos in the form of gangs, a drug called Gumdrop, and resource scarcity. In the midst of this, a group of nine travelers and their two dogs do their best to survive, hoping against hope to find safe haven.

Read our 9-page, downloadable PDF excerpt here, then go pre-order your copy for a May delivery! And make sure to keep tabs on our Flog and social media for more previews and author appearances.

Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America - Video/Photo Slideshow

Harvey Kurtzman: The Man Who Created MAD and Revolutionized Humor in America
by Bill Schelly

644-page 6" x 9" hardcover
$34.99 | 978-1-60699-761-1

Ships in: April 2015 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Harvey Kurtzman created MAD, and MAD revolutionized humor in America. Kurtzman's groundwork as the original editor, artist, and sole writer of MAD provided the foundation for one of the greatest publishing successes of the 20th century. But how did Kurtzman invent MAD, and why did he leave it shortly after it burst nova-like onto the American scene? Bill Schelly's heavily researched biography finally and fully answers these question for the first time. Through fresh interviews with Kurtzman's colleagues, friends and family, including Hugh Hefner, Al Feldstein, James Warren, R. Crumb, Jack Davis, Gilbert Shelton, and many others, and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives, this book tells the true story of one of the 20th century's greatest humorists. His family life, an FBI investigation during the McCarthy Era, his legal battles with William M. Gaines (publisher of MAD), all are revealed for the first time. Rich with anecdotes, from Kurtzman's Brooklyn beginnings to his post-MAD years, when his ceaseless creativity produced more innovations: new magazines, a graphic novel, and "Little Annie Fanny" in Playboy.
