IS THIS GUY FOR REAL GN
:01 FIRST SECOND
(W/A/CA) Box Brown
Comedian and performer Andy Kaufman’s resume was impressive – a popular role on the beloved sitcom Taxi, a high-profile stand-up career, and a surprisingly successful stint in professional wrestling. Although he was by all accounts a sensitive and thoughtful person, he’s ironically best remembered for his various contemptible personas, which were so committed and so convincing that all but his closest family and friends were completely taken in. Why would someone so gentle-natured and sensitive build an entire career seeking the hatred of his audience? What drives a performer to solicit that reaction? Graphic novelist Box Brown takes on the complex and often hilarious life of Andy Kaufman.

Mark your calendars now!

Box Brown’s latest graphic novel from First Second books ‘Is This Guy For Real’ comes out on February 7, 2018 and we’re going to be hosting a book release event for it! We’ll be hanging out with Box at Atlantis the Lost Bar at 2442 Frankford Ave in Fishtown and selling copies of his book (while he signs em!) and tossing back some brewskies and listening to the tunes provided by the Wednesday night DJ! Can’t be that!

There’s a Facebook event for this OVER HERE

DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Damon Gentry (A/CA) Troy Nixey

Thing is, there’s a danger far greater than cub scouts robbing banks . . . oh my! Across space and time lies a far greater threat, not only to Brick City but to the world! Holy crap! Can the two get past their differences and save the planet? Well, of course they can, but getting there is gonna be a helluva fun ride.
