Books Also Reading Tonight

Drew Friedman will be at the Fantagraphics Store in Georgetown tonight, for the opening reception of his The Fun Never Stops! show. Friedman has been doing comics for…lord, decades, now…and his strange, pointillism-ish/photorealistic-ish illustrations are always funny in a really unsettling kind of way, which is my favorite way to be amused. The reception is free.
The reception and show is a celebration of Friedman’s newest Fantagraphics release, also titled The Fun Never Stops!, which is a much-deserved career retrospective. Even more importantly, last year, Friedman released the wonderful book Old Jewish Comedians, and this year saw the release of More Old Jewish Comedians. Both books are magical.
