In this second animated episode of MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY BLABCO, I deconstruct one of my autobiographical comix from my Conundrum Press book REPRESENTED IMMOBILIZED! I’ll be @ the Conundrum Press table briefly, noon this Saturday, November 20, 2021 to sign copies @ the official Expozine Montreal book launch @ S.A.T. (1201 Saint-Laurent)! Come say hi!

In the mid-90’s, I had recently become roommates with Archive Montreal founder Louis Rastelli, who was just starting up his Montreal DIY zine Fish Piss, & he needed content so I began the series REPRESENTED IMMOBILIZED for him. It was after a midnight move away from my crumbling apartment down the street & I had to store most of my belongings in my parents’ basement where I grew up as I was looking for a new place. While gradually bringing all my childhood belongings back into my new digs, it started triggering memories from my past. Worried about them smudging from memory as time wore on, I took the opportunity to document them as a series of cartoons. Conundrum Press has just released the complete collection of these strips! And as a bonus, included within these pages is my 2015 one-shot mini-comic ONE MINUTE WORRIES, all about trying to make it through a whole month broke on just pennies. The book also boasts an extensive three-page intro by CanLit royalty Heather O’Neill. Sample pages & purchasing info HERE

Come interact with me about my new book during a live Zoom session affiliated with TCAF (the Toronto Comic Arts Festival) on May 9. I’ll be joined by Conundrum cartoonist & drummer for my band The American Devices, Howard Chackowicz, plus cartoonist David Collier & the subject of his latest Conundrum book, legendary Toronto first-wave punk promoter Gary Topp. Info HERE

Also; RSVP via Facebook the official Strange Adventures bookstore launch where I’ll be doing a one-hour interactive Show-&-Tell live on Instagram May 12 HERE
