Cartoonists Simon Hanselmann and Katie Skelly appear at the Strand Book Store on Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 7 PM – 10 PM!
Simon Hanselmann’s comics don’t spare the bawdy, broke, bad-tempered extremes of its Saturday-morning cartoon characters. Megg and Mogg in Amsterdam takes the titular weed-addled witch and her feline partner out of the suburban home they’ve made in his previous work in Megahex, at VICE, and in mini-comics aplenty, all the way to the stoner capital of Europe. Taking the gang out of their familiar down-under backwater doesn’t lift them from their singular miasma of bleak moods, dire hijinx, and unclear boundaries–join Simon at Strand for a wild night of the same.
Joining Simon in conversation will be fellow cartoonist Katie Skelly, Brooklynite creator of Nurse Nurse, Operation Margarine, the ongoing My Pretty Vampire, as well as comics for the sex-positive website Slutist. She’s also written and lectured about comics for outlets such as The Comics Journal, Fantagraphics, Japan Society, The Center for Cartoon Studies, Fordham University and The New School, and co-hosts the Trash Twins podcast with fellow cartoonist Sarah Horrocks.
