Today marks something of a milestone for Fantagraphics: our very first -- in 32 years of publishing -- cover of the venerable New York Times Book Review. Featured is Jules Feiffer's EXPLAINERS, in review by David Kamp titled "Cartoons for Grown-Ups" (who'da ever thunkit??). The online version even has the requisite NY Times slideshow. As my good pal Thom put it to me this morning via email, "What's next... a black president?" There is hope.
But wait, that's not even all! The very same issue of the NYTBR features a full-page review of Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez's recent work, by the critic Douglas Wolk, appropriately titled "The Audacity of Hopey". The piece reviews The Education of Hopey Glass, Amor Y Cohetes, and Love & Rockets: New Stories #1.
You are invited to hear Jules Feiffer read from and discuss his long-awaited collection, Explainers, featuring the complete first decade of his legendary and groundbreaking comic strip, Sick, Sick, Sick (and later redubbed Feiffer), from the Village Voice.
WHO: Jules Feiffer
WHAT: Explainers: The Complete Village Voice Strips 1956-66
