A Note from the Artist
Nothing is more tedious than some blogger posting about why he hasn't posted in so long. Suffice it to say, other matters claimed my attention. I now intend to resume updating this site more or less weekly, to promote my forthcoming book (about which see below), reëstablish my relationship with you, the readers, and to replenish the pool of groupies. For further information, see our new FAQs page.
My new collection of political cartoons and essays, Twilight of the Assholes, will be released by Fantagraphics in February. It is now available for pre-order on the Fantagraphics site, and several previews of the book have been posted on Flickr, Facebook, and Youtube. It's a good-looking book, if I may say so, the first of my books to be designed by an actual designer (Fantagraphics' Alexa Koennigs), and substantial, too--nearly 300 pages of hilarious cartoons and incisive essays undimmed by the passage of time. It also has an introduction by my favorite living political writer, Matt Taibbi, to whom I've referred my readers many times.
The official New York release for the book will be on February 17th, with a slideshow/reading at The Strand bookstore at 7:00 P.M., to be followed by beers at Burp Castle. It would make me look good if some people showed up.
Also I now have a Facebook page, for those of you who think that's a valuable way to spend your time.
