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.

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.

Acclaimed hip hop photographer Chi Modu posted this glorious, nostalgia-inducing shot of Method Man shopping at The Planet (821 Broadway iteration) in 1994 to his Instagram account yesterday.

Method Man at Forbidden Planet NYC 1994Anyone wanna take a bet that Johnny Blaze was picking up some Ghost Rider comics?

ALSO- that beautiful wall of science fiction paperbacks with a Marvel Universe poster hanging above it in the background? Yeeeeahhh… That’s where you can pick up $12 salads and $8 cups of crappy pulled pork over crappy quinoa in the Pret A Manger that currently occupies our old space. SMH.
