Comments Off on WA – Woman Rebel Lecture
Peter Bagge appears with Cienna Madrid on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 7:30 – 9:00PM!
You might know the story of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger—but chances are you’ve never heard (or seen!) anyone tell it like Seattle alternative-comics master Peter Bagge. The Harvey Award-winning author of the comic series Hate launches Women Rebel, his graphic-novel biography of social and political maverick Sanger, in a slideshow focusing on her activism and how the book came together, with original sample pages. Then, in conversation with Cienna Madrid of The Stranger, Bagge expands on the life of the birth-control activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist, making Sanger whole and human and showing how her flaws fueled her fiery activism just as much as her compassionate nature did.
Presented by: Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series, with Elliott Bay Book Company, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, and Drawn & Quarterly. Sponsored by City Arts.
Doors open: 6:30 pm.

Comments Off on CA – Reggie-12 Signing
Cartoonist Brian Ralph appears at Secret Headquarters on Wednesday, September 11th from 7-9 PM with Drawn & Quarterly for an evening to celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated Reggie-12, a hilarious pop-culture send-up of the infallible boy hero first presented in the seminal Asian culture magazine Giant Robot. The Cave-In and Daybreak author will be presenting a hilarious slide show with a signing to follow.
Reggie-12 is a young robot with endless enthusiasm. He lives with a bumbling sad-sack friend, a wise-cracking cat, and a well-meaning but forgetful inventor. Laughs explode from the page in this work, which reinterprets classic Japanese adventure manga through Brian Ralph’s trademark style. Come along for a wild ride with Reggie-12, Casper, and Professor Tinkerton as they eat pizza, play video games, and get dissed by bad guys.

Comments Off on NYC – Optic Nerve Signing
Join New Yorker cartoonist Adrian Tomine (New York Drawings, Shortcomings) and Drawn & Quarterly at Bergen Street Comics on Thursday, August 1st beginning at 7PM for the release of a dazzling new issue of the two-decade-long comic book series, Optic Nerve. Issue #13 features three complete stories, each distinct in their tone and visual style. “Go Owls” is a dark comedy about 12-step programs, drug dealing, and minor league baseball. “Translated, from the Japanese,” illustrates the diary of a young Japanese mother, caught between two countries and hovering on the precipice of divorce. “Winter, 2012” is an autobiographical glimpse into Tomine’s home life and his ongoing struggles with the modern world. Throughout Optic Nerve #13, Tomine channels contemporary zeitgeist and vernacular to produce flawlessly designed, compellingly readable stories. Come on by and pick up your copy, and be sure to toast the artist with a glass of bubbly. We hope to see you here!
