Time Event

Al Jaffee Unfolded

Al Jaffee has drawn hundreds of features for the MAD Magazine but he is undoubtedly best known as the creator of the Mad Fold-In that he has drawn monthly since 1964. His originals will be on display concurrently at the Scott Eder Gallery in Brooklyn.

Charles Burns: Down the Black Hole

A retrospective of Burns’ work as an illustrator (Sub Pop, The Believer, The New Yorker) and as a cartoonist (Black Hole, Big Baby, RAW), with a focus on the recently released third book of his graphic novel trilogy, X’ed Out. (Burns will be interviewed by Paul Karasik.)

Tim Lane, Ben Marra, & Jim Rugg: Neo Noir

These three cartoonists love tough yeggs, mean streets, and femme fetales. All three have recent work evoking smoky, double-crossing noir. Each creator will present and discuss his own Gods of Noir. (Lane, Marra, and Rugg will be interviewed by Karen Green.)

Roz Chast and Art Spielgeman Talk About Something More Pleasant

Roz Chast's cartoons are synonymous with the New Yorker. Her recent work, “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant”, surprised her readers as a frank memoir about her parents’ final years. Art Spiegelman is best known for his masterwork, “MAUS”, but has recently surprised his readers with a musical, “Wordless”. Together they will surprise the audience by asking each other questions.

Aisha Franz, Lisa Hanawalt, and Jillian Tamaki: Cutting Edges

Aisha Franz (Earthling), Lisa Hanawalt (My Dirty Dumb Eyes) and Jillian Tamaki (This One Summer) have all produced comics that touch upon issues of sexuality, humor, and the surreal. They will discuss their unique approaches to the medium within the larger context of self-publishing, commercial work, and creative collaboration in a panel moderated by NYTimes art director Alexandra Zsigmond.

Richard McGuire is Here

Fans of cartoonist / children’s book author / illustrator / musician, Richard McGuire, have been waiting years for the publication of the book-length “Here”, which originally ran in RAW. The wait is over. (McGuire will be interviewed by Paul Karasik.)

Raymond Pettibon and the Comics

Pettibon came to prominence in the early 1980s in the southern California punk rock scene, creating posters and album art for Black Flag and other groups on SST Records. He has since gone on to international acclaim, earning several awards and exhibiting in major galleries and museums. (Pettibon will be interviewed by Josh Bayer.)
