Simon Hanselmann appears at Floating World Comics on Thursday April 7, 2016 from 6:00 – 10:00 PM for the Megg & Mogg In Amsterdam and Other Stories release party, art exhibit & musical performance.
Born in mini-comix and made popular by Tumblr, Simon Hanselmann’s comics embody the angst of being an aging 20-something. In the wake of the New York Times Best-Seller Megahex, Megg & Mogg in Amsterdam follows Megg the witch, Mogg the cat, their roommate Owl, and Werewolf Jones as they all struggle unsuccessfully with their depression, drug dependency, sexuality, poverty, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other.
Debuting this April 7th at Floating World, Megg & Mogg in Amsterdam is the graphic novel anthem for people who are trying to find their place in the world. Collecting all of Hanselmann’s contributions to Vice.com, the Ignatz Award-nominated short story “St. Owl’s Bay,” and other surprises, Megg & Mogg in Amsterdam will add additional color and background for fans of Megahex. We will have original art from the book on display all month and Simon has prepared a special musical performance for the release party.
Simon Hanselmann is a genderqueer Australian cartoonist living in Seattle, WA. Each page of comics is hand drawn and meticulously watercolored. Simon has found international success with his stoner witch comics and has been translated into over a dozen languages.
