Cheese Biscuit and The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S.

Mmmm! Cheese biscuits and Love & Rockets sure go great together, as a buncha folks found out this past weekend in Charlotte, NC!  Our friends at the comic shop Heroes Aren't Hard to Find hosted a discussion group for The Girl from H.O.P.P.E.R.S. -- concentrating on Death of Speedy and Flies on the Ceiling -- and it looks like it was a ton of fun!

An exhibit of Jim Flora's curiously sinister art opens tomorrow night, Saturday, November 19th, in the curiously sinister city of New York, and you do not want to miss this!

The Dorian Grey Gallery is proud to present the very first posthumous New York exhibit and sale of Jim Flora original art, curated by our own Flora archivist Irwin Chusid, in conjunction with gallery owner Luis Accorsi and director Christopher Pusey.

It's gonna be a doozy: Offerings include temperas on paper; woodcut prints (vintage and new); medium and large acrylics on canvas; pen & ink drawings on paper; fine art and screen prints, and branded Flora paper merchandise. Many of these exhibited works have NOT been previously published in our three Fantagraphics anthologies!

The opening reception is this Saturday night from 6:00 - 9:00 PM, and will include a live music set by the Cracked Latin trio, featuring gallery owner/vocalist Accorsi along with guitarist/vocalist Lane Steinberg and percussionist Charlie Zeleny. Zowie!

The Dorian Grey Gallery is located at 437 East 9th Street (between 1st and A) in New York City.  The exhibit runs through January 8th.

Michael Kupperman Takes On The Scarlet Empress
Written by janice headley | Filed under Michael Kuppermanevents 15 Nov 2011 10:13 AM

The Scarlet Empress

Let's all go to the movies with Michael Kupperman!

Comedian and Emmy-award winning Daily Show writer Elliott Kalan has devised the "Closely Watched Films" series, for "hardcore movie nerds and beginning cinephiles alike." And on Wednesday, December 7th, Kupperman will join him at 92Y Tribeca [ 200 Hudson Street, NYC ] for a look at the 1934 film The Scarlet Empress, starring Marlene Dietrich. 

Together, they will discuss "rare bursts of Hollywood madness, von Sternberg’s Svengali relationship with Dietrich and whether historical accuracy is ever necessary." And based on Kupperman's latest, Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010, I'm gonna say the answer to that last part is... naw.

Cheer up, good sir! This year, the International Society of Caricature Artists have named Drew Friedman as their Guest-of-Honor at this year's convention. And all I gotta say about that is, daaamn straight!

The 2011 convention runs November 13th through 18th in St. Pete Beach, Florida, and unfortunately, it's only open to members of the ISCA, but if you happen to be one, you can look forward to what's sure to be a delightful keynote address from Drew!

Congratulations, Drew!!!

CORRECTION: Drew informs us that day passes to the convention are available to the general public! –Ed.
