JOHN P/Map Of My Heart=ZAK SALLY/Like A Dog book release party OCT 24


my very good pal John Porcellino has been on the road for the past 5 weeks, traversing our great nation in celebration of the release of his new book "MAP OF MY HEART: selected comics 1996 -2002" (Drawn & Quarterly) and not only that but GET THIS: also marking 20 YEARS OF KING-CAT.
i know, it's crazy. so, yeah; John has been doing his zine for 20 years, and it's pretty well agreed that King-Cat is perhaps the greatest mini comic, uh...ever. John has been HUGELY influential and i'm not even going to get into all that because i'd be up typing for another 2 hours, but it's a big deal (in a very quiet, small way).
and John has said to me many times on the phone about the comics that make up "MAP OF MY HEART"..."they're the best comics i've ever done". and you know-- they ARE. and with someone like John, and a magazine like King- Cat, that's saying something. i'm not kidding, this is a VERY SPECIAL BOOK.
and not only that, but MY new collection of old stuff is coming out too-- it's called "LIKE A DOG", and it's a fancy hardcover book with a bunch of full color stuff in it, collecting the first 2 'zine issues of "Recidivist" as well as a bunch of other stuff i did for anthologies and whathaveyou, all decked out with extensive "liner notes". my pals at Fantagraphics were nice enough to publish the thing, and i've got to say-- i'm extremely proud of this book. i really am; it came out better than i could've possibly hoped.

so it's a RELEASE PARTY FOR BOTH BOOKS!!! HOORAY!!!
michael's puttin' it on, so we'll both be at BIG BRAIN COMICS (that's 1027 Washington Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55415 (612) 338-4390) signing and shooting the breeze from 5 til 7:30 or so on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24.

then after that, we're heading over to the WEST BANK SOCIAL CENTER (501 Cedar Ave. S (Second Floor) Minneapolis, MN 55454 http://westbanksocialcenter.org/)
from 8 to 10 or so, where Johhnny will give a presentation about 20 years of zinehood.

as always, short notice, but
come on down and say hi.
ok all, bye.
best, zak.

damn, i don't have a pic of Johnny's book, but here's mine:
(whoops, that's it up top there and i'm too tired to change it...)

We should be meticulous and perceptive in all the par‘nesis we give. We should be especially prudent in giving opinion that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to evade giving recommendation which we don't imitate when it damages those who take us at our word.

To be a adroit human being is to be enduring a make of openness to the world, an gift to trust aleatory things beyond your own manage, that can take you to be shattered in very exceptional circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly weighty relating to the fettle of the honest passion: that it is based on a conviction in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a jewel, something fairly tenuous, but whose extremely particular attraction is inseparable from that fragility.

Work out ferments the humors, casts them into their proper channels, throws substandard redundancies, and helps nature in those hush-hush distributions, without which the association cannot subsist in its vigor, nor the incarnation fake with cheerfulness.

I don't like the sound of all those lists he's making - it's like fetching too innumerable notes at high school; you sense you've achieved something when you haven't.
