Also Reading Tonight

posted by on March 27 at 15:03 PM


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.

I fucking love Jews. I wish I could go back in time and talk Hitler into taking care of Christians instead.

Isn't there some internet law that the person who brings up Hitler or Nazi's automatically loses the online argument?

@1 Fail.

Erm, "Nazis". No possessive.

@2 - not if they're Jewish. Just ask Jon Stewart.

Looking at Drew Friedman's art reminds me of reading Spy magazine in the 80's.

sigh...I miss Spy and I'm deeply embittered that Donald Trump appears to have won that celebrity feud.

Commenting isn't a game, you stupid bitch.
