Guess Who Showed Up! : Mission Comics (April 4th @ 7pm)

Hey, we’re having a book release party this Friday at Mission Comics in SF for Andy Douglas Day's new book Miss Hennipin.

There will be a reading at some point, drinks, and a ton of art up on the walls from Andy, Sarah Ferrick, Ellen Addison, and myself. Come out! It promises to be a good time. Also, the show has to be taken down by Saturday night, so Friday is your only real chance to see this stuff. :)

butterstory:

MISS HENNIPIN is a really, really excellent book by Andy Douglas Day. It was just published by Scott Longo over at Sonatina Comics earlier this month.. It’s a book that’s very much alive. There’s so much more to say about it and I wish I could articulate what makes the whole thing so significant but that seems like the best and truest thing I can manage right now without rambling. It’s very alive.  I interviewed Andy about some of this over Gchat back in February. Read it here: ANDYVIEW

This interview between Sarah & Andy is probably the best writing surrounding Miss Hennipin right now, and more ppl should read it, if compelled. <3

Every thinking man is prone, particularly as he grows older, to feel waves large or small of a kind of cosmic regret for what he let go past him. He wonders helplessly — knowing how futile it would be to feel any active passion — how he could have behaved as he did or let something or other happen without acknowledging it.

The only salve to this occasional wound — basically open until death, no matter how small and hidden — is to admit that there is potential strength in it: not only in recognizing it as such but in accepting the long far ripples of understanding and love that most probably spread out from its beginning.

A good time for me to contemplate such personal solutions, or whatever they may be, is when day slides into night. In almost all weather I can sit for a few minutes or an hour or so on my veranda, looking west-southwest and letting a visceral realization flow quietly through me of what other people have given me that I can only now understand.

Great friend Hallie Bateman wrote an on-point recommendation of Miss Hennipin for The Bygone Bureau. Very simply, she gets at what’s so enjoyable about this comic. &lt;3

Hehe. Good buddy Argel posted a nice response to Hennipin and took her for a pleasant pedicab cruise down the Embarcadero. Sounds ideal to me. ;)
