Eye of the Majestic Creature Book Signing

EYE OF THE MAJESTIC CREATURE
BOOK SIGNING WITH L. STEIN

@ Secret Headquarters
Friday, September 23rd beginning at 7pm
We are super excited to announce our “Eye of the Majestic Creature” book signing, happening this Friday! Join artist Leslie “Larrybear” Stein and the SHQ bunch for some boozy beverages and check out one of our favorite books of the year.

Praise for “Eye of the Majestic Creature”:

“Visual inventiveness combined with a high level of wit.” – Michael Kupperman

“You’d be hard-pressed to find a more downright affable character than blithely blitzed Larrybear, the young female focus of Leslie Stein’s ongoing semi autobiographical comic, whose first four issues are collected here…. Stein gives us the slackerly, star-eyed alternative to a cadre of ‘misanthropic, self-pitying comics about unappreciated cartoonists,’ as Tom De Haven characterized it… …[T]his book [is] such a pleasure…” – Richard Gehr, The Comics Journal

“Stein’s cartooning is broad and trippy, and if she occasionally becomes intoxicated with her own gimlet-eyed sensibility, she’s never afraid to turn that dark wit on herself. Eye of the Majestic Creature… is ultimately the tale of a young woman rejecting the things that shaped her and attempting to figure out what comes next for her. Thanks to Stein’s loose, amiable approach, you’ll want to know that, too.” – Glen Weldon, NPR

You can find out more about the book and read at excerpt over at Fantagraphics.

Forming Book Release Party @ Secret Headquarters

FORMING VOL 1 BY JESSE MOYNIHAN
BOOK RELEASE PARTY

@ Secret Headquarters
Friday, August 5th beginning at 7pm
Come join Jesse Moynihan and the SHQ crew to celebrate the release of the beautiful new graphic novel “Forming”. There will be booze, fun, and reflective conversation about life, the universe, and everything (if you’d like.)
A quick synopsis of Jesse’s new book:
“Since the dawn of human history, we as a species have sought to understand our existence through creationist fables of omnipotent deities, mythical creatures, and speculation of what—or who—may lie beyond the stars. In Forming Vol. 1, Jesse Moynihan takes these 50,000 years of socio-religious postulation and throws them in the blender to create one epic—and irreverent—battle royal between alien gods, Ancient Greek Titans, interplanetary assassin droids, and humanity itself.
An eon-spanning comedy, Forming details the spawning of worlds, and the trajectory of consciousness on Earth. The first in a trilogy of books, Nobrow is proud to collect the first volume of Jesse Moynihan’s acclaimed webcomic in a specially-designed graphic novel format truly worthy of its contents.”
