You are invited to the world premiere of Jules Feiffer's long-awaited collection, Explainers, featuring the complete first decade of his legendary and groundbreaking comic strip, Sick, Sick, Sick (and later redubbed Feiffer), from the Village Voice. Feiffer will read from the book and answer questions before signing copies of the deluxe hardcover collection.
"Samuel Johnson said he hoped God would think he had made good of his God-given talents. Jules Feiffer need have no dread of such an audit... What has made his services so welcome for so many years now is his possession, in addition to high intelligence, of something no hypocrite or egomaniac could claim, which is a human sense of humor." - Kurt Vonnegut
WHO: Jules Feiffer
This event is free and open to the public.

We have a very cool new feature up, suggested by Gary Groth and written by production ace Paul Baresh, tracing the process of restoration of a page from the late-1950s humor magazine Humbug (created and edited, post-MAD, by Harvey Kurtzman) for our forthcoming collection (due in late summer). Check it out!
Gabrielle Bell drew this beautiful picture of my three cats (from top to bottom) Jaybird, Martini and Sancho.
When I decided to share these sketchbook pictures, I photographed all of them and uploaded them into a private Flickr set in a random order and have just been uploading them one a day in the order of the Flickr set. It's very weird that this picture came up for today, because yesterday we had to say goodbye to Martini, who passed away at age 14. R.I.P., Martini Baton, 1994-2008.
