OR – I Can’t Guess Release Party

000000000000-I Cant Guess

Daria Tessler and Dylan Jones appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 7, 2016 from 6-9pm for the I Can’t Guess art show and release party!

Press Release:

In addition to their recently published books, Daria Tessler & Dylan Jones are making a collaborative art zine out of a vast assortment of bits and pieces.

Dylan also will have a new zine called I Can’t Guess made for the show, in addition to his new book The Longer You Stare the Fatter I’m Guilty, published last month by Gridlords. Dylan Jones has led a shoe mouth face floppy dagger dinger across an array of pages with his dextrous limbs’ pinwheel pineal dialogue. His new book will no doubt leave a zipper-length void in midmouth just as you grew wanting.

Daria Tessler’s most recent book, Three Magical Recipes from the Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, was published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. Dig out your parents’ glassen vessel and catch thyself a rearmouse – Daria Tessler illuminates three recipes from Alchemist-in-Chief Albertus Magnus’s Book of Secrets… One spell-binding four-color Risograph booklet.

Dylan Jones is an artist originally hailing from New Hampshire. Jones probably draws for more hours, makes more art and animates more objects than anyone alive or dead. It’s hard to imagine Jones sleeping ever, and his work makes one believe that he likely only loosely does something resembling sleeping, with eyes agape at all times. A meditative existence, so to speak. His work is methodical, pulling at all of the items in view, all of our mundane surroundings, and showing us how people can inhabit these the way Jones will inhabit your psyche. Jones’s work is the field of fantasies for persons who have seen too much, and it is the nightmares of the blissfully ignorant.

Born in Finland, Daria Tessler has been popping out of a jack-in-the-box at the cranking of dawn’s sunburned hand to the music of unknown worlds. A master silkscreener and master artist, Tessler has pulled as many visions she has screens. Her expert use of color will make you believe you are seeing hues that your eyes couldn’t previously register. Her linework and patterning is the most pleasant waft of wispy air, filled with pollen and pines, brushing over you. Each inhabitant of Tessler’s work wears on them a blissful quality of anxiety, a state of mind. You are doing yourself the greatest favor by stepping out of your body and into her body of work. Her book Music of Changes will be out soon from Latvian publisher kus! as part of their mini kus! line.

Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester to Appear Together in Long Beach This September!

Three months until Long Beach Comic Con returns to the Long Beach Convention Center – September 17 & 18, and MAD Event Entertainment is pleased to announce the addition of voice actors Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester to this year’s show!

Appearing as the voices of Batman and Robin in the celebrated 1990s television series, Batman: The Animated Series, the two will appear at the LBCC for the first time together in a series of signings and a special Saturday panel, looking back at the series that remains a high watermark in animation nearly 25 years later!

Kevin Conroy holds the honor of having played Batman longer than any other actor in either live-action or animation. In addition to being credited for his two distinct voices for Bruce Wayne and Batman in Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited Conroy has voiced the character in the direct-to-video DC Universe Animated Original Movies: Batman: Gotham Knight (2008), Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009), Superman/Batman: Apocalypse (2010), Justice League: Doom (2012), Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013) and Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014). He returned to the role again for the 2015 Rocksteady Studios game, Batman: Arkham Knight.

“Looking forward to the chance to reflect on my work for Batman The Animated Series, as we approach the 25th anniversary of the landmark series at the Long Beach Comic Con” said Kevin Conroy.

Loren Lester appeared alongside Conroy in the landmark animated television series as Dick Grayson, better known as Robin, and as Kirk Langstrom (Man-Bat) in Batman: Arkham Knight. He has also appeared as the voice of Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) in theDC Entertainment series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and as Iron Fist in Marvel’s The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Additionally, Lester has appeared in over 200 episodes of television including the cult favorite Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

“This will only be the second time ever that Batman & Robin are at the same convention” notes Loren Lester. “I’m thrilled to be returning to see all my fans in Long Beach”

“We are so excited to have Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester join this year’s Long Beach Comic Con ” said Martha Donato, Long Beach Comic Con Executive Director and Co-Founder. “Not many shows can say they hosted the Dynamic Duo themselves!”

Conroy and Lester will appear throughout the weekend, and will revisit their roles as The Dark Knight and Boy Wonder on a special panel presentation of Batman: The Animated Series on Saturday September 17, in celebration of DC Entertainment’s recently announced Batman Day.
