Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Start Time: 07:00PM End Time: 09:00PM
The Cartoon Art Museum welcomes Steve Lafler on Wednesday, July 25 at 7:00pm as he and CO2 present Ménage a Bughouse, a 400-page volume collecting Lafler's trilogy of Bughouse graphic novels, Bughouse, Baja and Scalawag, previously released on the Top Shelf imprint. Lafler will discuss his graphic novel trilogy and sign copies of the book for museum patrons. This event is free and open to the public.
Bughouse is the story of Jimmy Watts and his band of jazz playing bugs. The character driven story is set in a stylish insect-noir world, invoking an indigo-toned Manhattan of the early 1950s. Be-bop is king, and the alluring substance “bug juice” threatens to destroy the players against a backdrop of romance and intrigue.
Lafler puts the creative life and the pitfalls of addiction under the microscope in this tour-de-force collection, tossing his name into the ring for contention as the Great American Cartoonist.
“I was inspired by The Autobiography of Miles Davis as well as the movie adaptation of William Burroughs Naked Lunch” quips Lafler. “The post-war Be-bop jazz and Beat literature scenes of New York called to me as an apt setting for an extended work”.
