The Ignatz Award–winning Lisa Hanawalt whose stuff has turned up in all sorts of places over the years — from places likeVice Magazine, McSweeney’s, The Believer, and Lucky Peach Magazine to The NY Times and Vanity Fair — has rounded up all her minicomics and small press bits and bobs and stuck them in one fine-looking book from D&Q. If you’ve never seen her stuff before that’s because a book like this has been needing to happen for a long time and now it’s here.
Dirty Dumb Eyes is 120 pages of painted weirdness and laffs and you need a copy in your life. Here she is over atComicbook Resources explaining who she is, what she does, and where she got that name from. “This sounds slightly pretentious, but this book is really about the way I look at things. Seeing the world through my eyes. And I see a lot of really dirty, dumb stuff. Also “dirty eye” sounds like a euphemism for “butthole,” doesn’t it?”
Yep. Here’s a PDF preview.
