My Dirty Dumb Eyes (Drawn + Quarterly) 

Join New York-based cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt in launching her hilarious debut collection, MY DIRTY DUMB EYES, which has received advance praise from Patton Oswalt, Kristen Schaal, Julie Klausner, and Michael Kupperman. With movie reviews, tips for her readers, laugh-out-loud lists, and short pieces such as “Rumors I’ve Heard About Anna Wintour” and “The Secret Lives of Chefs,” Hanawalt makes the quotidian silly and surreal, flatulent and facetious, proving herself to be one of the foremost humor cartoonists of our time. Her presentation will be followed by a Q&A and signing.

"For years I've encountered Lisa Hanawalt's comics and illustrations piecemeal -- in various magazines and periodicals. They're always a pleasant jolt. Now, they've been assembled into one thick, blazing bludgeon. I envy you getting walloped by them all for the first time. This is a Hanawalt assault. Succumb."-Patton Oswalt

"Hanawalt's My Dirty Dumb Eyes is a fantastically vivid and whimsical playground, offering page after page of absurdity, humor, and charm. The artwork is stunning and the jokes are surprising and fresh. This book is a rare and wonderful invitation inside the surreal world of Hanawalt."--Kristen Schaal
