Twain in the Membrane: Greenlight Bookstore Tomorrow!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Michael Kuppermanevents 19 Oct 2011 8:27 AM

Twain in the Membrane with Michael Kupperman

Full steam ahead! The "Twain in the Membrane" tour is heading for the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn tomorrow night, Thursday, October 20th, and you'll wanna be aboard!

It's part of the literary humor series "Steamboat," a monthly event of "wine-addled, text-based hilarity" hosted by comedian Bob Powers. This month, our (possibly) wine-addled humorist Michael Kupperman will be reading from the (definitely) text-based book Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010!

(As of this writing, we're not sure if Kupperman will be arriving in Twain-garb. As of this writing, we're not sure if he takes those eyebrows off at all.)

He'll also be joined writer Maggie Serota (Onion AV Club, Radar, NY Press, Philadelphia Weekly), and there will be short films by Mitch Magee (actor and director, HBO's Funny Or Die Presents, writer for CollegeHumor, founding member of the improv group Monkeydick).

Get there by 7:30 PM! Greenlight Bookstore is located at 686 Fulton St (at South Portland) in Brooklyn. And, did we mention the wine is FREE?

Go Nuts with Gahan Wilson at The Strand Tomorrow!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Gahan Wilsonevents 19 Oct 2011 8:13 AM

Nuts by Gahan Wilson

You'd be NUTS to miss this event!

Join comics legend Gahan Wilson tomorrow night, Thursday, October 20th, at the great Strand Bookstore in New York City!

He'll be signing and discussing his new book, Nuts, a collection of stories originally published in the National Lampoon’s “Funny Pages” section throughout the 1970s.

Moderating the discussion will be our pal Jesse Pearson, former editor of VICE magazine and contributor to The Comics Journal.

The fun starts at 7:00 PM, and you can either buy the book from The Strand or buy a $10 Strand Gift Card in order to attend this event. Both options admit two people. The event will be located in The Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.

The reports of Mark Twain's death were greatly exaggerated indeed!  Why, he's been all over the New York area lately, promoting the smash-hit Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010, as transcribed by the wonderful humorist and cartoonist Michael Kupperman.

Here he is, at the New York Comic-Con this past weekend, signing with our friends at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund...

And earlier this month, Twain made an appearance at Littlefield in Brooklyn for the Twain in the Membrane Comedy Party:

Ben Franklin showed up to challenge Twain to a duel, and apparently won by faking a heart attack.

There was a Twain-lookalike contest...

... and as we reported, yes... frog-humping.  Although apparently no one was brave enough to compete! Enjoy tons more awesome pics at photographer Edwina Hay's Flickr page here.

As you can see, things have been zany with our good friend, Twain-y, so stay tuned to the FLOG for future dates in the Twain in the Membrane tour!

We've got an exciting last-minute addition to our already-thrilling Twain in the Membrane tour: Michael Kupperman will make an appearance at the New York Comic-Con this Friday, October 14th, signing copies of his most-recent masterpiece, Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010!

... or WILL HE?  'Cause we've heard tell that a certain Mr. Twain might show up in his place! Those sure are some beautiful eyebrows, Mr. Kupper-- er, Twain.

He'll be signing from 1-3 PM with our good friends at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at Booth #1158.

And then at 3:15 PM, head over to the Hasbro Stage for a special NYCC-edition of the cartoon slideshow extravaganza Carousel, hosted by our pal R. Sikoryak! Kupperman will be joined by Sam Henderson, Danny Hellman, and Emily Flake.

As always, stay tuned to the FLOG for future appearances in the Twain in the Membrane tour!

[UPDATE: Mike here, butting in to add the newly-posted flyer and link to more info for the NYCC Carousel performance!]
