MR. FISH discusses his comic AND THEN THE WORLD BLEW UP with ROBERT SCHEER

And Then the World Blew Up (Fantagraphics)

What do you get when you cross a fistful of pens and an enormous stack of blank paper with somebody who resents the sweet-smelling muzzle of good manners and polite conversation, will go to his grave insisting that phuck is not a four-letter word, has never been able to hold a 9 to 5 job for more than a handful of meager months, who regularly permits himself the crude grace of giving a shit about absolutely everything, and who delights in always saying the wrong thing at the right time in contempt of every expectation that the naked truth is at all obscene?

You get And Then the World Blew Up, a collection of cartoons, illustrations, personal essays and culture-war correspondence from an author who's just trying to defuse the apocalyptic bomb that is the miracle of our Creation. Drawn, painted, and collaged in Mr. Fish’s many virtuosic styles, And Then the World Blew Up is an eloquent take-no- prisoners response to American political life. 

WARNING: This book contains satire, which has been known to cause extreme bouts of giving a shit about the human race.

Mr. Fish lives in Philadelphia, PA. His work has appeared in Harper's, Truthdig, The Nation, The Village Voice, The Atlantic, and the LA Times. His awards include the Grambs Aronson Award for Cartooning with a Conscience and the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Editorial Cartooning.

Robert Scheer, editor in chief of Truthdig, writes a column that is nationally syndicated by Creators Syndicate in publications such as The Huffington Post and The Nation. The Society of Professional Journalists awarded Scheer the 2011 Sigma Delta Chi Award. Scheer is a former co-host of the political radio program Left, Right and Center and now hosts the podcast Scheer Intelligence on KCRW. He is a professor of communications at the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism at the University of Southern California.
