Dash Shaw @ The Isotope

Let’s all celebrate the NEW SCHOOL, shall we? We’re hosting this event in conjunction with the professors and students of The California College of the Arts brand new MFA in Comics graduate program. And we’re also toasting Fantagraphics Books’ latest offering from the amazing Dash Shaw!

NEW SCHOOL explores adolescent angst, sibling rivalry, infatuation, alienation, and teenage disillusionment in Dash’s quirky bold line style with an explosion of color. This surreal, emotional coming of age opus revolves around two brothers and the setting of ClockWorld, a crazy new amusement park that recreates historical events like the Kennedy assassination in graphic detail. Weird, awesome stuff!

Before our party, don’t miss Dash doing the public speaking thing at CCA’s Comics In The City lecture series, and then come join us as the Isotope’s own Kirsten Baldock mixes up a Shaw-inspired cocktail list that is sure to dazzle! We’re looking forward to introducing you all to Dash, he’s a really fantastic guest who we love having in. Here’s a happiness-inducing write-up from last time he was here that will make you smile.

We’ll see you on the 26th, no number two pencil required!
