I brought home a bunch of stuff from APE last weekend and I am starting to read through it. Here's the good stuff so far:
LOSE by Michael Deforge
This is a crazy comic with funny JLA satire strips, famous comic characters who are in hell, and great single-panel dog comics. The drawing is also very beautiful. It looks like this guy also did the cover for the issue #4 of Diamond Comics that was also new at APE, but I haven't read it yet. I think this dude will be as famous as Chris Ware.
STAY AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE by Lisa Hanawalt
I got this mini-comic and Lisa's other new regular comic but have only read the mini. There are some real solid laughs in here and good drawings. I guess it won a Ignatz award? That's pretty good. The dude at the table I bought it from told me I could get Lisa Hanawalt to sign it for me, but she was talking to some other people and I am shy around everyone and really unpleasant in general, so I just left. I predict she will be as famous as Chris Ware, too, if it's possible for three people be that famous at the same time.
DOOKIE-BALL JONES by Al Frank
Tim Goodyear gave me this thing and it's pretty good. But it's also extremely dirty and mean. There is poop-eating and Craigslist "encounters" and racism and pedophilia, but it's all in good fun/satire. Tim said people give it back to him after they buy it and don't even want their money back. Rated X for eXtraordinary, and because it's very disgusting and offensive--AND IT REALLY MAKES YOU THINK.
HENRY & GLENN FOREVER #1 & #2 by Igloo Tornado
I actually got these from Tom Neely at San Diego Comic-Con Int'l this summer and I think they were new two years ago, but still funny. Issue one posits that Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig are best buds/lovers/roomies and milks that situation for what it's worth. Number two is more of the same, but now they live next door to Hall & Oates.
That's it for now.
