LOS ANGELES: The Kurdles Art Show and Release Party
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Robert Goodineventsart showsartarbitrary cuteness 4 Mar 2015 12:54 PM
The Kurdles
LOS ANGELES - This April, the one and only Secret Headquarters is hosting an art show and release party featuring watercolor pages from Robert Goodin's most excellent new comic, The Kurdles. The opening reception for the exhibition is on Friday, April 3rd at 7pm. The show will remain up from April 3rd-April 30th. 

When Sally the bear gets tossed by her own owner, she finds herself helping a rag-tag group of characters when their house threatens to grow legs and leave! Reminiscent of The Brave Little Toaster or Herge's Tintin, The Kurdles is an all-ages comic spiced up with a teaspoon of strange and is presented in a beautiful, bande dessinnée-size-and-style hardcover. 
Kurdles   
At LA's hot comic shop, Secret Headquarters, Goodin will be selling original artwork the opening night of the show - FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY! It's too beautiful to believe:
Kurdles
Goodin, an animation industry veteran (American Dad, Rugrats), delivers a timeless classic in his debut graphic novel, introducing an unforgettable and charming cast of characters. Printed in an oversized format to showcase Goodin's stunning, hand-painted artwork, The Kurdles will capture the imagination of both parents and children.

Reception: Friday, April 3rd

Angry Youth Comix by Johnny Ryan - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesJohnny Ryan 4 Mar 2015 11:30 AM

"More than worth its price in pure mirth. But there’s more! …This newest issue sees the artist’s signature series move further than ever into straight-up horror/exploitation territory, without losing a lot of ground in comedy. …Fascinating work." – Jog The Blog

"A lot of people’s Top Ten Favorite-est Comics of the Year lists this year will involve comics about Israel or the exquisite sadness of being an Asian man who likes blondes, all that stuff; mine will involve cheeseburger-flavored semen…? I got dropped on my head a lot as a baby." – Abhay Kholsa, The Savage Critics

"The new Angry Youth Comix is finally out and it may be the darkest cartoon we’ve ever seen and also the most hilarious… It also features one of the most honest depictions of the American family dynamic to appear in print, though we can see that aspect maybe getting lost for some readers amid the turd-vines and the synthetic ejaculates." – Vice

Collected Poems by Alexander Theroux - Video/Photo Slideshow
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesAlexander Theroux 4 Mar 2015 11:10 AM

Collected Poems
by Alexander Theroux

672-page color 6" x 9" x 2" hardcover
$39.99 | 978-1-60699-802-1

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

The publication of Alexander Theroux’s Collected Poems, a gathering of more than 660 poems, an astonishing creative output, will be among the major literary events of the year. Here is a full cornucopia of sonnets, odes, ballads, free verse, triolets, pure, satires, narratives, dramatic monologues, fanciful meditations, flytings and harangues, ruminations on death and lost love, and no end of lyrics both beautiful and fierce. Taken altogether they contrive to make up a record of the author's deepest thoughts and reflect the dramatis personae of his life. Theroux captures in his work those rare, frail, but precious truths, inaccessible to the common run of men that would otherwise have vanished into nescience. Sardonic, astute, impertinent, tender, clever, warm-hearted, delphic, truculent, comic, defiantly aggressive, and often achingly personal, he shows an intensity of observation and invention.

Dash Shaw in ArtForum March 2015
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Dash Shawartistsart 2 Mar 2015 2:13 PM
Artforum
Cartoonist pioneer, Dash Shaw, is forever reaching beyond what we perceive and accept as comics. In the current issue of ArtForum, new on the stands this week, Shaw made a Top Ten list of his favorites in the art, publishing and just whole damn world. Here's a pic Dash took of the first page featuring Breakdown Press, a Quaker comic, a 3-D musuem artists use as a modern morgue (files of reference art), and our favorite Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. Grab a copy at your local bookstore to read the rest of the Top Ten or visit the website!

Dash is currently a Cullman Center Fellow and is spending much of his time researching his own graphic novel on Quakers at the New York Public Library.
