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.
