Lloyd Dangle at Quimby’s!

Aug ’08
7:00 pm

Lloyd Dangle will perform his 20 Years of Troubletown humorous slide show floor show and sign copies of his book Troubletown Told You So, Comics that Could’ve Saved Us From This Mess.

Troubletown, by Lloyd Dangle, was first published in the San Francisco Bay Guardian in 1988 and has since grown to become a widely syndicated cartoon feature in alternative newsweeklies and lefty political magazines.

Lloyd’s cartoons and illustrations have appeared in over 100 magazines and newspapers of every type from the crusty corporate mainstream to the bleeding, subcommercial edge. Lloyd’s work has been featured in publications including American Lawyer, Cosmopolitan, Entertainment Weekly, San Francisco Chronicle, Shape, Sierra, Mother Jones, The Nation, The New York Times, Outside, Time Magazine, Utne Reader, Village Voice and Wired. His drawings also adorn the packaging of Airborne effervescent cold remedy, which the company claims has been one fastest-selling products in retail history.

Lloyd was also the first cartoonist assigned to cover the Republican National Convention in New York City armed with nothing but a pen and a blank sketchbook, the resulting cartoon was selected for Houghton-Mifflin’s series, The Best American Comics. When not on the road covering bizarre and dangerous political events, he works out of his converted garage in Oakland, California.

Lloyd Dangle grew up in Michigan and, after getting a BFA from the University of Michigan School of Art, tossed it all out the window to draw cartoons for Michael Moore’s (much praised and reviled) muckraking newspaper, the Michigan Voice. He moved to New York City during the go-go 80’s and worked for several magazines and newspapers, including the Village Voice when it was still at the height of its powers. He landed a cartoon feature at upscale Manhattan, Inc. Magazine, lampooning the high-living antics of Wall Street’s youthful elite (some things are timeless). After landlord larceny caused Dangle’s apartment building to collapse (literally), he moved to San Francisco and secured his well-earned underground hipster cred, roaming the Mission District, and befriending Robert and Aline Crumb, appearing in their classic depressive übercomic, Weirdo.

He lives in Oakland, California, with his wife, Hae Yuon Kim, and their son, Oscar.

DR. REVOLT and Gary Panter Appearance and signing of The Lost Ones

Steve Niles teams up with four visual artists to bring you a graphic novel that will challenge what you think about time and space travel. DR. REVOLT, an original member of the historic New York City graffiti crew The Rolling Thunder Writers, Gary Panter, an illustrator known for his surreal and raw style, Morning Breath, Brooklyn-based art and design duo, and emerging painter/fashion designer Kime Buzzelli – each bring a remarkable and unique drawing style to the project.

“The Lost Ones” tells the story of Duncan, Roxy, Rasheed and Cynthia, who leave their Earth and get swept up in an epic intergalactic adventure. What starts out as a harmless day of extreme planet jumping turns into a mind-blowing, white-knuckle race for their lives to get back home. Collector’s and paperback editions of “The Lost Ones” will be available for free in early July 2008 at select comic book stores nationwide.
