Terror Assaulter release party with Ben Marra!

terrorposter_wheeler

Join us at Forbidden Planet NYC on September 16th from 6PM to 8PM in celebration of Fantagraphics’ Terror Assaulter! Artist, writer, all around cool dude Benjamin Marra will be on hand signing copies of his newest slice of psychotronic comics. Marra has been a Forbidden Planet favorite since the release of his 80’s stripper slasher opus Night Business, and his newest work promises to be filled to the brim with all the sex, violence, and tongue in cheek humor that we’ve come to know and love him for. These are not independent comics, they’re exploitation comics!

If you can’t make the event? Well boo on you, but that doesn’t mean you have to be left out. Preorder signed copies of Terror Assaulter now from www.fpnyc.com and we will ship them to you after our event on September 16th.

9781606998830

Cartoonist Benjamin Marra brilliantly satirizes America’s obsession with justice — and disinterest in consequences — via a highly stylized, hyper- masculine style that gushes with violence, sex, and international intrigue, battering down the boundaries between psychedelia, political commentary, and aggressive expressionism. Terror Assaulter must defeat Terror at all costs, as long as it leaves time for steamy dates with hot chicks. The man’s codename is O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) and he is the world’s greatest protector, and a villain’s worst nightmare. This is a hilarious satire of American foreign policy over the last decade, neocon philosophy, the state of American masculinity and sexuality, and male power fantasy in escapist entertainment.

What: Benjamin Marra signs Terror Assaulter (O.M.W.O.T.)
Where: Forbidden Planet NYC 834 Broadway NYC
When: Wednesday, Sept 16th 6-8 PM

Comics Sit Down & Draw (& Sign) June 24th!

SPAZ 1 hi res

Here in NYC it’s easy to get confused when someone mentions the word “comics”. We’ve got such a rich culture of comic book creators and stand-up comics that you could easily be talking about either one. Rarely, though, is there a comic written specifically by comedians.

SPAZ Comics is that book, and we’ve got a signing coming up this June 24th to celebrate. And we’ve got a killer line-up of comics that’ll be there, including Dave Konig (Host of Hardcore TV, Louie), April Brucker (Last Comic Standing, Layover with Anthony Bourdain), Johnny Rizzo (who’s opened for Joan Rivers, Weird Al Tommy Chong, and more) and Rik Sansone (Editor of Spaz).

The event starts @ 7pm. Hope to see ya there!

FRANK

Cult movie filmmaker Frank Henenlotter—the notorious director behind BASKET CASE, FRANKENHOOKER, BRAIN DAMAGE and BAD BIOLOGY—has joined the growing list of horror celebrities who have come onboard the New York City Forbidden Planet (832 Broadway near Union Square; [212] 473-1576) signing of FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER. The event will take place on Thursday, April 2nd (next week!) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Besides directing some of the wildest independent horror films of all time, Henenlotter won kudos for his archival work with distributor Something Weird and helming the much-praised documentaries HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS: THE GODFATHER OF GORE and THAT’S SEXPLOITATION! His latest film, a caper picture called CHASING BANKSY, debuts later this year.

Appearing with Henenlotter will be genre all-stars such as: splatter king Tom Savini; legendary FAMOUS MONSTERS cover artist Basil Gogos; Larry Fessenden (director of THE LAST WINTER, HABIT, WENDIGO); Debbie Rochon (actress, Fango columnist and former host of Sirius’ much-missed FANGORIA RADIO); and screenwriter and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (CARRIE and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, Broadway shows SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK and upcoming AMERICAN PSYCHO). In addition, staffers Tony Timpone, Thomas DeFeo, Michael Gingold, W.R. Mohalley and Ken Hanley will be on hand to sign as well. Copies of FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER will be available for purchase, but all autographs will be free, as they should be!
