Another DeCarlo post.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Dan DeCarlo 2 Oct 2008 1:34 PM

Throughout the late midcentury, Dan DeCarlo was simultaneously defining the look of tight-sweatered Riverdale girls in Archie comics for little Billy while drawing titillating Riverdale-esque women losing their sweaters in Humorama magazines for Bill senior. Like Playboy being produced by Disney, the utter American-ness of it resonates deeply and rather disturbingly. It's the ultimate subversion to see these Archie girls squeaky-clean and wide-eyed in a slick, crass, Man's World of viral virile impotence. And I can't stop admiring DeCarlo because of and in spite of it...

[Ha. I misspelled 'virile.' And, no, I'm not going to explain myself.]

Robert Goodin TONITE

Robert Goodin signing flyer

Tonight at 7:00, see Mome contributor Robert Goodin at Meltdown in LA for the release of his new comic one-shot from our pals at Top Shelf, The Man Who Loved Breasts. Momes will, of course, also be available, as well as other Goodinalia.

(I dare you not to sing the title of this post to yourself to the tune of the theme from Entertainment Tonight now that I have put the suggestion in your head.)

Watch Kim Deitch at the Strand
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoKim Deitchevents 2 Oct 2008 11:54 AM

The Strand bookstore presents video footage of Kim Deitch's presentation there two weeks ago. (Note that there was a minor tech problem with the sound at the beginning, but the audio kicks in after a couple of minutes, when the on-screen clock hits 19:04.)

Holy moses, watching Steve Brodner draw McCain and Palin is pretty goddamn awesome.

Leah Hayes covers Ryan Adams
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Leah Hayes 2 Oct 2008 10:45 AM

Leah Hayes did the album art/packaging for the limited-edition vinyl release of Ryan Adams' new album, called "Cardinology."

They also made a T-shirt out of the cover of the album, and inside the LP is a 12-page comic, illustrating the lyrics for the album. A must-have for Hayes or Adams fans (Eric Buckler, this is for you).  

 

New Comics Day 10/1/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesNew Comics Day 2 Oct 2008 10:33 AM

Sorry we're a day late with this! Scheduled to arrive at your local comics shop yesterday from Fantagraphics:

The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970 Box Set by Charles M. Schulz
Meat Cake #17 by Dame Darcy

As usual you can view previews and get more info at the links above... you'll especially want to check out the preview for the Peanuts box set since that comes shrink-wrapped and your neighborhood comic shop clerk probably isn't going to want you peeling it open...
