Visitors to the "Counterculture Comix" exhibition at Bumbershoot in Seattle this weekend will get a preview of the latest installment of Hooked on Comix. Director David P. Moore will attend all three days of the festival and screen clips from the new volume, featuring Fantagraphics favorites Dame Darcy and Tony Millionaire [seen below together at Comic-Con - Ed.], who will be at Bumbershoot on Monday.
The show features continuous screenings of classic early volumes of Hooked on Comix. The exhibition celebrates Seattle's legacy of alternative comix awesomeness. It's free on Friday, and the holiday weekend includes giants of pop music (Bob Dylan, Courtney Love, Neko Case, Mary J. Blige, Weezer, etc.), as well as contemporary film, lit, visual arts, and more.
After whetting your comix appetite at the Bumbershoot exhibition, drop by our store to stock up on reading material and the last viewing of Dame Darcy's delightful show of original artwork. Open Friday and Saturday until 8:00 PM, Sunday 11:30 to 5:00 PM. The store will be closed on Monday for Labor Day. Mark your calendars for the Carol Tyler event the following Saturday, September 11.
