OR – Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream Signing

nemo

Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday February 5, 2015 to sign Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream! The party runs from 6-10 PM but Craig Thompson will be signing from 8-9pm only.

Press Release: 

Winsor McCay was perhaps the greatest cartoonist of all time, and the Sunday newspaper strip Little Nemo in Slumberland is his most enduring creation. Detailing the adventures of its titular character in The Land of Wonderful Dreams, the early twentieth century opus is one of the most inventive and visually stunning works of American art. A century later, the comic medium is still racing to keep up with the richness, draftsmanship, imagination, and wonder of McCay’s fantastic storytelling and wild Slumberland universe.

In Locust Moon Press’ new anthology LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM, many of the world’s finest cartoonists have paid tribute to the master and his masterpiece by creating new Little Nemo strips, following their own voices down paths lit by McCay. Contributors include Paul Pope, JH Williams III, Bill Sienkiewicz, David Mack, Carla Speed McNeil, Charles Vess, Peter Bagge, Dean Haspiel, Farel Dalrymple, Marc Hempel, Nate Powell, P. Craig Russell, Jeremy Bastian, Jim Rugg, Ron Wimberly, Scott Morse, David Petersen, J.G. Jones, Mike Allred, Dean Motter, Yuko Shimizu, Roger Langridge, and Mark Buckingham, among many others.

Published in the fall of 2014 as a hardcover book at the full size of the original Little Nemo broadsheet pages (16″ x 21″), this book will celebrate McCay’s endless legacy, chart his influence on generations of modern cartoonists, and most of all shine a light back on an artist who has given his art form so much, and whose work should be more widely known.

This is a love song for Winsor McCay, Little Nemo, and the limitless possibilities of comics. Join artists Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple on Thursday Feb. 5th for an art exhibit and get copies of this beautiful book signed. We will also have exclusive giclee prints of Craig and Farel’s pages for sale. We’ll have over a dozen original pages from the book on display from artists including: David Mack, Cole Closser, Alexis Ziritt, Dave Bullock, Aaron Conley, Mark Mariano, Daniel Elisi, Benjamin Marra, Tom Scioli, Weshoyot Alvitre, JG Jones, Dave Chisholm, Ron Wimberly and Jeffro Kilpatrick!

OR – How to Be Happy Signing

fwcEleanor Davis appears at Floating World Comics on Wednesday July 9th, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 pm!

Press Release:

Eleanor Davis’s How to Be Happy is the artist’s first collection of graphic/literary short stories, and it’s about time. Davis is one of the finest cartoonists of her generation, and has been producing comics since the mid-2000s. Happy represents the best stories she’s drawn for such connoisseurial venues as Mome, Nobrow, and Lucky Peach, as well as her own self-publishing and web efforts. Davis achieves a rare, subtle poignancy in her narratives that are at once compelling and elusive, pregnant with mystery and a deeply satisfying emotional resonance. Happy shows the full range of Davis’s graphic skills — sketchy drawing, polished pen-and-ink line work, and meticulously designed full-color painted panels — which are always in the service of a narrative that builds to a quietly devastating climax.

Eleanor Davis lives in Athens, GA, with fellow cartoonist Drew Weing. You can check out her work at www.doing-fine.com, and buy her mini-comics at www.littlehousecomics.com.

OR – Forming II Art Exhibition

fwcJesse Moynihan appears at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 3rd, from 6:00-10:00 pm for a FORMING II release party, art exhibit and musical powerpoint performance!

Press Release:

The long-anticipated sequel that encompasses all; mythology, theology, hermaphrodites, super-alien gods and the simple task of creating the cosmos.

Civilization, but not quite as we know it, has started to take shape. And now, in the continuing chaos, the world and most of its inhabitants have brandished their swords and, in various fashions, have charged onto the battlefield.

If Forming I hailed the birth of civilization and mapped out the genesis of life, mass, time and space, then Forming II is the raging war that ensues in the Universe’s years of adolescence.

Epic confrontations between gods and mutants, philosophical reflections, hilarious dialogue and powerful artwork make for an impressive sequel of galactic proportions. Forming II is as funny, sophisticated and mind-blowingly beautiful as the first part of Moynihan’s unique trilogy.

Join us and Jesse Moynihan on July 3rd for an art exhibit and release party for this eagerly anticipated new volume. Jesse will also present a special musical powerpoint performance that will take guests into the world of FORMING.

Jesse Moynihan grew up outside of Philadelphia where he spent most of his time drawing and playing music. In 1997 he dropped out of Pratt Institute, got a film degree at Temple University and decided to concentrate on comics. His work has been featured in The Believer, MOME, Vice, Arthur, the Philadelphia Weekly, and various independent anthologies. In 2005 he received a Xeric grant for self publishing. In 2009 he released his first graphic novel, Follow Me through Bodega. His current mystical, sci-fi epic, Forming is published by Nobrow Press in London. Jesse works as a storyboard artist for the Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time.
