Molly Crabapple’s first graphic novel, Scarlett Takes Manhattan, launches on July 8th! To celebrate, she is hosting decadent parties and signings on both coasts. Residents of New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, take note.
July 8th, 7-9pm: Scarlett Takes Manhattan Launch Party @ The Slipper Room
On July 8th, Fugu Press releases Scarlett Takes Manhattan the first graphic novel by Dr. Sketch’s creator Molly Crabapple and her longtime collaborator John Leavitt. Set in the demimonde of Gilded Age New York, Scarlett Takes Manhattan tells the story of poor Bowery girl Shifra Helfgott, who rises to become the premier fire- eater of her age.
Chock full of rigged boxing matches, dirty politics, and turn of the century lesbian culture, Scarlett has been described as “disgustingly wonderful” by Warren Ellis and led Margaret Cho to call Molly “THE artist of our time.”
To celebrate the release of “Scarlett Takes Manhattan,” Fugu Press will be throwing a glittery, burlesque-inspired launch at The Slipper Room, New York’s premier variety venue.
