Magazines
Autocult #1 (OLUM Occidental Lodge of Underground Motoring) $12.00 – From their website about the first issue of this magazine: “And when we say ‘culture,’ we don’t mean ‘kulture.’ Kulture was first widely used back in 1993 when the Kustom Kulture exhibit toured the country and dropped an A-bomb on the hot rod scene of the era. But by 2011, it’s turned into a four-letter word, just like ‘rat rod.’ No, when we use the word culture to describe what we do here, we use it in the context of ‘cultural anthropology.’ That sounds better to us. And when we use the phrase ‘rat rod,’ we’re talking about the first wave of revolution twenty years ago that took the hot rod out of the exclusionary realm of high-end street rod shops and put it back in the home garage, where it all started. ”

3. Optic Nerve #12 by Adrian Tomine (D&Q) $5.95 – 1. Optic Nerve #12 by Adrian Tomine (D&Q) $5.95 – Two pitch-perfect stories of rejection, imperfection, and relationship drama, each ending on a surprisingly uplifting note. “Hortisculpture” pushes Tomine into a stylistic camp with Sammy Harkham, Jordan Crane, Chuck Forsman and Kevin Huizenga – perhaps more than ever before. The story works with a “Chalky White”-ish suburban everyman and his tempered ambitions, but camps up the visual style into a Marmaduke-y newspaper strip aesthetic. The effect is similar to the trickiness of his wedding planning comics. The second half is a repolishing of his “Amber Sweet” college girl mistaken for porn star plot. Plus we get a glimpse into Tomine’s sad-sack mailbox, and some self-aware griping about putting out comics issue by issue.  -EF

Craig Thompson Celebrates Habibi 11/17

Nov ’11
17
7:00 pm

Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi (Pantheon Books) tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, circumstance, and love. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world fueled by fear and greed.  At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance; a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and the magic of storytelling.

“Habibi is a remarkable feat of research, care, and black ink, and a reminder that all “People of the book,” despite the division of their individual traditions, share a mosaic of stories.”—Zadie Smith, Harper’s Magazine

“A fantastical love story of a harem girl and the slave boy she rescues, inspired by the Arabian Nights, ancient calligraphy, and modern environmental catastrophe.”—Dan Kois, New York Magazine

Craig Thompson is the award-winning author of the graphic novels Blankets  and Good-bye, Chunky Rice.

Quimby’s Backs Chromazoid Comics Anthology & Mix Tape Kickstarter Project. So should you.

We backed the Chromazoid Comics Anthology & Mix Tape Kickstarter project by Lale Westvind in Harlem, NY. It’s a book with color comics by nine FRESH Comics by Nine FRESH Artists, handpicked, like flowers, IN VIBRANT COLOR! Each comic is totally unique in its aesthetic and medium. The artists are Ben Bertin, Robert Calzone, William Cleveland, Lisa Cline, Lyra Hill, Nick Jackson, Ian McDuffie, Jeremy Tinder and Lale Westvind.

Editor Lale Westvind says, “The Mix Tape that comes with the book is an eclectic mix of genres and styles, with songs and sounds influenced and inspired directly by the comics in the book. I made this book to showcase friends and peers of mine that I thought were making incredible work and wild music, stuff that would look and sound even better if PRINTED IN COLOR and ON TAPE and COMBINED! Kickstarter donations fund the expensive color printing of these books and tapes, then we get to carry the chromazoids all over the u.s. to get our work seen, read and heard.”
