SEATTLE: SuperTrash at Elliott Bay Book Company

Supertrash 
On Sunday, November 2nd, join the punk illiterati and connoisseurs of low art for a book signing with Jacques Boyreau at Elliott Bay Book Company. Boyreau's new book, SuperTrash celebrates the vague, fuzzy line between high art and lowly trash. Would a Picasso by any other name look as sweet? Boyreau will give you a lesson in taxonomy and a tour through his curation of SuperTrash: Hermaphro Chic, Movie Fetish, 21st Century AnxietyPart psychedelic psychotronic, part poster book, part album cover book, part paperback pulp book: interdisciplinary, quantal, and polyglottal, SuperTrash is surrealism for the 21st century.
 
So head on over to Elliott Bay Book Company at 3pm this Sunday (1521 Tenth Avenue, Seattle, WA) for an afternoon you'll never forget!
 
In addition the Northwest Film Forum presents three screenings of THE CROW on October 29, 30, and 31, at 8pm., in celebration of the SuperTrash release with a video presentation on Halloween night featuring a SuperTrash trailer. Filled with enthusiastic performances, anguished romance, and unchecked sadism, The Crow is a Baudelairian graphic poem about toilsome "undyingness."

A Valentine for Charlie Brown by Charles M. Schulz - Inside Page

Oh, that Charlie Brown. What a sigh!

A Valentine for Charlie Brown is here, a bright pink square contrasted against Seattle's current fall gloom. Our next holiday-themed Peanuts gift book collects Charles M. Schulz's strips detailing our ever-optimistic round-headed hero, waiting so patiently for the valentine that he just knows will show up at his mailbox. Then, there's Sally Brown's continued pursuit of her reluctant "Sweet Baboo," Linus. This book makes for a great gift, whether or not you celebrate February 14th, and you can pre-order it now for a December delivery!

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1 & 2 Gift Box Set
by Don Rosa

424-page full color 8.5" x 11" hardcover • $49.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-781-9

Ships in: October 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

To commemorate the first time Don Rosa's legendary and internationally acclaimed Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge stories have been comprehensively reprinted in America, we have produced a stunning two-volume boxed set collecting the first two books in the 10-volume series. These two volumes contain over 30 of Rosa's ingeniously plotted, meticulously rendered, and kinetically vital Duck stories — from "A Matter of Gravity," in which Magica deSpell turns Uncle Scrooge’s world upside down and sideways, to "Return to Plain Awful," Rosa's sequel to Carl Barks's "Lost in the Andes." Both books are available in a customized, full-color slipcase at a bargain price.

Cochlea & Eustachia by Hans Rickheit - Photoset Preview
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsnew releasesHans Rickheit 28 Oct 2014 1:20 PM

"The frighteningly hilarious world of Rickheit's is a deranged cabinet of curiosities… It would all be too oppressive if Rickheit's sense of humor weren’t so addictive…" – Publishers Weekly

"With a drawing style that resembles Jason Lutes and Charles Burns, and a storytelling style similar to Jim Woodring and Al Columbia, Rickheit excels in making nightmares lucid." – The A.V. Club

ST. LOUIS: Tim Lane at Star Clipper
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Tim Laneevents 28 Oct 2014 12:16 PM
The Lonesome Go
Tim Lane, master of the intense and dense comics page is back at his hometown store for a book signing this Saturday, November 1st at 7pm. Lane continues his exploration of the Great American Mythological Drama that began with his first book, the critically acclaimed Abandoned Cars. This collection of stories is broadly linked together by the experience of wandering - both literally and figuratively. With compelling verisimilitude, the lives of his characters are depicted by way of rich mixtures of obscure myths and documented facts, dreams and reality, belief and disbelief, throughout a haunted landscape populated by the ghosts of a complex and rich fictional tapestry. Star Clipper in St. Louis is the place to be to meet the man behind the myth. 
 
Feel like singing in the great "Jackie's Blues" experiment? Every town Lane visits he invites musicians and singers to record themselves. Lane is documenting the folksy sounds of ordinary and extrodinary people even in the midst of the heady technological age and you could be a part of it.  
 
Hop a train, throw out a thumb on the highway or break into those new-to-you shoes to get to Star Clipper.

Cartoonists and their Museums

MK CAM
We told you about some shows opening in the last few weeks and NOW we have some sweet photographic proof, c'mon, you believed us, right?! Above, M.K. Brown stands outside of the Cartoon Art Museum at Saa Francisco, CA. Her show runs from August 30th until February 15th, 2015. It collects comics and single panel gag cartoons featured in her collection Stranger Than Life (published by Fantagraphics!). 

Bill Griffiths of Zippy the Pinhead lists the things he looks for in an amazing cartoonist on the CAM site.
"- Chronicles the times we live in, but does so in a way that doesn't 'date.'
- Juxtaposition, juxtaposition, juxtaposition.
- Makes the personal universal, makes the universal personal."

...to name a few but they equal M.K. Brown!  

Gitmo1  

Meanwhile, on the serious side of things, Janet Hamlin's show Sketching Guantanamo is now open at the Univeristy of Richmond in Virginia for the next two months.

Gitmo2 

Much of the sketches from inside the court room in addition to paraphenalia and photos from the Gitmo base itself are on display. 

Gitmo3
For more on Janet's time there as the primary sketch artist, check out her book Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals 2006-2013, availabile at your local bookstore, library and our online store. 
Sketching Guantanamo
Meanwhile, Jacques Boyreau of Portable Grindhouse, Sexytime and now SuperTrash just had a month long installation at the PNCA in Portland. On a panel for the high-and-low-art show, Boyreau (second from the left) articulates how we are all creators and purveyors of trash art. The low brow or pop culture of today maybe the only thing that stands the test of time after many tomorrows.Supertrash 
Jacques will be appearing at Elliott Bay Books this Sunday at 3pm with a presentation about SuperTrash and signing copies of this assault on your senses.

Doctors
Doctors  
by Dash Shaw

Starred review: "With his signature spare, thick line work on display, Shaw pursues his twin main interests-stressed families and sotto voce science fiction-in his most audacious color exercise since The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century (2010) and his most eventful book ever." –Ray Olson, Booklist

You’ll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and fascinating commentary by a clan of Disney cave bears.

Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It; edited by Anne Ishii and Graham Kolbeins - Cover

Finally! Nine months after our announcement and catalog listing for Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It—an English-language anthology of renowned gay erotic manga artists—we have the finished cover art for your viewing pleasure! We couldn't be more excited to introduce this first-of-its-kind book, collecting photographs, essays, interviews, and illustrated work of nine of Japan's most renowned artists making work for the gay male audience. Edited by writer/translator Anne Ishii and filmmaker Graham Kolbeins, the book will take you deep (ahem) into an aspect of Japanese subculture that is still fairly unknown in the English-speaking world.

We'll be releasing more gay manga art goodness here and all over our social media networks in the next few days. Meanwhile, make sure to grab your pre-order copy of Massive here.
