Price: $3.95
Currently in its 17th issue, Dame Darcy’s Meat Cake is a visionary blend of gothic horror, Victorian fantasy, and punk romance rendered with the artist’s singular graphic sensibility. Published by Seattle-based Fantagraphics Books, Meat Cake has developed a devoted following among a dramatically diverse readership. Her recently released graphic novel, Gasoline, is a post-apocalyptic gothic fairy tale of suspense, heartbreak, and redemption.

Dame Darcy has achieved national recognition through her creative associations with counterculture personalities including Courtney Love, Lisa Crystal Carver, Thurston Moore, Tori Amos, and Alan Moore, among countless others. Currently residing in Portland, OR, she remains active in visual arts, comics, video, film and music.

Dame Darcy will perform on vocals and banjo with her acoustic trio, followed by a reception and book signing. Patrons will also enjoy the exhibition of original art by the MAD geniuses behind Harvey Kurtzman’s Humbug. Admission is free. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at Airport Way S. in Seattle’s colorful Georgetown arts community. Open daily, 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sunday until 5:00. Phone 206.658.0110. This event coincides with the lively “Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack” featuring visual and performing arts presentation throughout the historic neighborhood.
