This gorgeous hardcover edition collects the Tiger Lung adventure from Dark Horse Presents #21–#23, along with two bonus stories.

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.

OR – Twin Peaks Art Show

Pia Guerra, Dan Goldman, Jim Agpalza, Andreis Costa, and Matt Haley appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday April 3th from 6:00 – 10:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Join us Thursday, April 3 for an evening of art, pie and the best damn coffee around! We’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the cult-classic TV series “Twin Peaks” with a group art show created and curated by ardent fans and professional illustrators!

“Twin Peaks” became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was a critical success both nationally and internationally. It captured a devoted cult fan base and became a part of popular culture that has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics. Declining viewer ratings led to ABC’s insistence that the identity of Laura’s murderer be revealed midway through the second season. The series was followed by a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as a prequel to the television series.

Artists featured in this show include “Y: The Last Man” artist Pia Guerra, noted collage artist Andreis Costa, “Red Light Properties” creator Dan Goldman, rock poster artist Justin Hampton, Eraserhead Press cover artist Jim Agpalza, DC Comics artist Matt Haley. Their original art will be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Pixie Project, a local non-profit animal adoption center and rescue.
