Wyrd War and Fantagraphics Books join forces to celebrate the release of
Jim Osborne: The Black Prince Of The Underground
, the definitive adults
only collected work and biography of one of America's most perplexing,
violent and haunted underground comic artists. Long before John Callahan
began illuminating our collective unconscious taboos with primitive
cartoon scrawls, Jim Osborne was terrifying the status quo with
unthinkable graphic abominations. Join us for a matinee slideshow
retrospective of Osborne's very strange life and legacy by preeminent
underground comix historian Patrick Rosenkranz, followed by a "surprise"
cinematic classic that perfectly reflects the dark Osbornian aesthetic.
What kind of movie would inspire a deceased cartoonist and former High
Priest in the Church of Satan? Come find out!
