Dylan Horrocks - Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen

Friday, September 18, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Meet Sam, an artist selling his soul by churning out an action comic when he wants to create graphic memoirs. Or just have adventures: absorbed—perhaps literally—in a comic about Mars, Sam embarks on a far-flung fantasy involving pulp plots and anime characters. Using Sam’s colorful experiences to comment on graphic traditions, Horrocks, the New Zealand-born comics artist best known for Hicksville and the scripts of the Batgirl series, offers a vivid meditation on creativity and the moral responsibility of the artist. Look for Horrocks’s Incomplete Works, featuring a wondrous mix of daydreams, fantasies, and other distractions from work, next month.
