Series: Wyrd War Presents!
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!
