Matt Thurber (1800MICE) & Leslie Stein (Eye of the Majestic Creature) BOOK LAUNCH PARTY

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Start Time: 07:00PM    End Time: 09:00PM

Matthew Thurber’s 1-800-MICE is an anthropological study of the imaginary city of Volcano Park (where flying mouse couriers have replaced Federal Express), with a soap-opera-styled fractured narrative and a cast of thousands. 

Leslie Stein’s Eye of the Majestic Creature is a collection of semi-autobiographical and fantasy-based comics that combine dry humor, psychedelia, and emotion, and follows a young girl and her talking acoustic guitar on their adventures through the countryside and the big city.

Meet the authors and join us for a book launch party.

"1-800-MICE reads like a mysterious oddball artifact from a much stranger and cooler parallel universe." - Matt Groening

“Leslie Stein’s comics inhabit a charming and semi-autobiographical (in the most ‘semi’ sense of the word) yet surreal, insular world where her best friend and closest confidant is an acoustic guitar. What’s not to relate to?” — Peter Bagge
