According to the Dead Darlings Facebook page, Joe Dator (seen in the cereal bowl, back row, right) will be “serving up cut, rejected, dead-on-the-desktop GOLD!”
The event takes place March 12, 2014 at the Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Sq. South. Doors open @7:30 pm, show begins @8:00pm
Check out the “Dead Darlings: Magically Delicious Edition!” Facebook page for more information, including bios of the other participants.
Link here to see what Charles Barsotti, Joe Dator, Carolita Johnson, Mick Stevens, Liam Walsh, and Kim Warp have to say about their “A-Ha!” moment on the New Yorker‘s website this week (I’m guest blogging).
The brand new New Yorker (March 10, 2014) features what I believe to be an unprecedented single issue contribution by a cartoonist: a dozen pages, in color. The piece, by Roz Chast, “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” is also the title of her forthcoming graphic memoir (coming in May from Bloomsbury USA. The cover appears to the left).
