Today on the site we have Gary Groth returning to these hallowed pixels to bring us the latest drawings by Brooklyn’s own Jonah Kingstein — a pen and ink master of outrage. At age 94 he’s unleashed his powers upon Donald Trump. Gary interviewed the artist as well.
This is the run-up week to not just next week’s election, but also Comic Arts Brooklyn, which this year proudly features the great Dame Darcy, as well the debuts of Charles Burns’ new book from Le Dernier Cri — a collection of 180 pages of his “Free Shit” zines, as well as Richard McGuire’s new book, Sequential Drawings. The fest itself is free and runs from 11am to 7pm at Mt. Carmel Gymnasium, 12 Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with several related satellite events that kick of Thursday night at Desert Island, so check out the web site for info. Tom Spurgeon interviewed Gabe Fowler about the show here.
