I meant to post this sooner, but I’ve had a ton of stuff going on lately and, well, I forgot. Anyway, my pal Peter Kuper has what looks like a very cool new book and is doing a series of signings. (Warning to those of you at work, which, judging by my site stats, is most of you — turn your speakers down before you click thru.) There’s one more event in NYC, as well as several others around the country. If you go, tell him you saw it here, so I don’t look like a total schmuck for not getting this up earlier.
July 22nd: 7:00PM
Peter Kuper and Kevin Pyle will be doing powerpoint presentations including Kuper’s work from Oaxaca, Mexico, Kuper in Oaxaca and signing their new graphic novels Stop Forgetting To Remember and Blind Spot at Bluestockings located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan at 172 Allen Street between Stanton and Rivington one block south of Houston and 1st Avenue.

… here’s a little more info:
World War 3 illustrated editors Peter Kuper and Kevin Pyle will be presenting work from their latest graphic novels, Stop Forgetting to Remember and Blindspot.
Peter Kuper’s Stop Forgetting to Remember is a wry quasi-autobiographical meditation on the reconciliation of a past of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll with the present demands of parenthood in the shadow of 9/11 and Bush’s wartime America. Kuper will also be presenting his first-hand graphic reportage of the recent citizen uprising and government repression in Oaxaca, Mexico, where he has been living for the past year.
Kevin Pyle’s Blindspot chronicles one boy’s disillusionment with heroic comic-book depictions of war and the role of forbidden imagery in exposing the darkness at the center of the adult world. Pyle’s will also show material from Lab U.S.A, his docu-comic on authoritarian and racially-inspired scientific research.
