Don't miss these upcoming events with Dame Darcy, promoting her new book, Gasoline:
GASOLINE BOOK RELEASE PARTY
GASOLINE BOOK SIGNING
GASOLINE ART OPENING, NY
Mike Baehr, Janice Headley and I are headed down Friday for this weekend's Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco, and we will be bringing along about 150 comics and books for you to browse and get signed all weekend long by our amazing line-up of attending authors:
11AM Johnny Ryan
11AM Megan Kelso & Kevin Huizenga
Meanwhile, Jordan Crane, Esther Pearl Watson, Chris Ware (yes, Chris Ware!), and others will also be appearing at the show. How can you miss it? It runs 11 to 7 Saturday and 11 to 6 Sunday.
Just because Dame Darcy is busy with music, dollmaking, and being a reality TV star, that doesn't mean she's stopped baking her beloved Meat Cake, and here's a new issue to prove it! In Meat Cake #17, God is revealed to the Faeiry Sisters — so of course they get into a fight over it. Also, Trixxie Roxx stars in "The Horrors of Fame," what Darcy describes as "a punk-rock version of those cheesy 1940s romance novels where the girls are going through hyperdrama all the time" — plus more kee-razy neo-Goth fairy-tale madness from one of comics' true originals!
I haven't had a chance to really check this out yet, but Noah Berlatsky has, with the help of a few friends, put together this thing called the Gay Utopia symposium. Both Johnny Ryan and Dame Darcy contributed. There's lots of other comics related stuff too; contributions by Ariel Schrag, Michael Manning, Lilli Carré, Edie Fake, Dewayne Slightweight, and Nishizaka Hiromi, as well as essays and more.
Meat Cake #16
by Dame Darcy
Meat Cake profiles the romantic Rudolph Valentino, the secret language of flowers, love spells, and spells for mermaid hair. Plus: don't miss the true tale of the magical ball and a kitten left by the faeries in a box of nails, depictions of 16th century folk ballads about the uselessness of everything, as only Dame Darcy can depict. And... sex magic!
