Boy’s Club Book Release with Matt Furie
Friday, June 17th
Beginning at 7pm
Matt Furie brings the fury of Boy’s Club to Secret Headquarters in Los Angeles for a book release shindig. This will be a hot one L.A., so don’t sleep on it! Matt will be signing books and selling artwork!
Cartoonist Matt Furie’s deadpan comics showcase slacker roommates Andy, Brett, Landwolf, and Pepe in a series of comical vignettes combining laconic psychedelia, childlike enchantment, drug-fueled hedonism, and impish mischief. The perpetually insouciant glaze of his characters belie the sharp verbal and visual wit of Furie, who delivers a stoner classic for the Tumblr generation. In fact, Furie’s wildly popular teenage weirdoes became an overnight internet sensation when Pepe the Frog was widely adopted by users of 4chan and remixed ad infinitum from there (including uses by pop stars like Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry), giving Boy’s Club built-in recognition with many. A spiritual cousin to Simon Hanselmann’s Megahex and Joán Cornella’s Mox Nox, Boy’s Club’s sense of humor will especially resonate with fans of stoner comedies and black humor.
“Malachi Ward is an exploding
super-nova of ideas. He is making some
of the most inventive, thought provoking,
beautifully crafted and strangely haunting
science-fiction in comics today.”
