MO – The Lonesome Go Signing

lgo

Tim Lane, one of St. Louis’ most influential & popular indie cartoonist, will be hosting a special release party for his newest Fantagraphics book, The Lonesome Go, at Star Clipper on Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 PM. Come meet Tim Lane and get an autographed copy of The Lonesome Go. Tim will also be hosting a carousel film connected to his new graphic novel and the short film will be accompanied with a live musical performance.

About The Lonesome Go:

Tim Lane continues his exploration of the Great American Mythological Drama that began with his first book, the critically acclaimed Abandoned Cars. This collection of stories is broadly linked together by the experience of wandering — both literally and figuratively. With compelling verisimilitude, the lives of his characters are depicted by way of rich mixtures of obscure myths and documented facts, dreams and reality, belief and disbelief, throughout a haunted landscape populated by the ghosts of a complex and rich fictional tapestry. You’ll witness a young man’s dubious quest to discover the myth of the protagonist from an obscure vintage comic strip; encounter sociopathic hobos in boxcars and misled young men whose facial pores sprout worms and who throw up babies into gas station toilets; visit modern “Hoovervilles”; and experience the life and death of an undocumented immigrant bookstore doorman, former boxer, and expert hustler.

MO – Girls with Slingshots Signing

gws2014tour

Cartoonist Danielle Corsetto will be in St. Louis for one night and has chosen Shameless Grounds as the venue to host her book signing.

There will be a Q&A on Tuesday, July 8th from 7:00 until 8:00 and then she will be selling and signing books from 8:00 until 11:00. You will want to purchase something from Shameless in order to claim a special gift from Danielle.

For those of you that haven’t been to Shameless Grounds yet: Parking is on the street. PLEASE TRY TO PARK ON LEMP. (Withnell is a residential street and we try to leave those spots for the residents.) If you want to sit inside, be sure to get here early to grab a table. If you do end up sitting outside, you’ll still be able to hear Danielle’s answers through our PA.

Girls With Slingshots debuted on October 1st 2004, both online and at SPX in Bethesda, MD. Since its humble beginnings as a twice-weekly black-and-white webcomic, it’s become a self-sustaining color webcomic that updates five times a week, Monday through Friday.

The strip’s two main characters, Hazel and Jamie, sprung to life in a strip called Hazelnuts, the unintentional prequel to GWS. The title was derived from requests Danielle used to get at comic conventions to draw girls with guns (she sucked at drawing guns, so she drew them with slingshots).

Danielle Corsetto is the artist and creator of Girls With Slingshots. She created her first comic strip when she was 8, starting with a blatant rip-off of Garfield called Fat Cat. She started writing Hazelnuts in high school, and ran a comic about super-senior college kids called Ramblers in the student paper at Shepherd College (as well as Pop Image and World Famous Comics). She also briefly ran a comic called Larry and Caroline in the Hagerstown Herald-Mail newspaper.

In October of 2004, she began Girls With Slingshots, and by 2007, with the first print collection of GWS and other merchandise & art sales, she was doing the strip full-time. It’s now updated 5 times a week at some god-awful hour.

In addition to GWS, Danielle wrote and drew The New Adventures of Bat Boy for the Weekly World News, taking the reins from Peter Bagge. She’s also written two Adventure Time graphic novels for BOOM! and has several other projects in the works.

Danielle hails from Ijamsville, MD and now lives in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in a 230-year-old house with her two cats, Smudge and Ellie (aka Fluffy and Sprinkles). She loves drinking tea, going for hikes, traveling, cooking, gardening and eating local foods, because she is a filthy hippie. Danielle has taught illustration at her alma mater Shepherd University, and hopes to teach more in the future. She is a lifetime Girl Scout.
