SPACE Special Guest- Joyce Brabner!



We are proud to announce our Special Guest, Joyce Brabner, at SPACE this summer!

 


Joyce Brabner is an award-winning author of nonfiction comics about tough social issues. She will be at SPACE with her recently released Second Avenue Caper. She frequently collaborated with her late husband, Harvey Pekar, on his American Splendor series. Her own titles include the Real War Stories series, Activists!, Brought to Light (with Alan Moore), numerous short stories, and Our Cancer Year (also with Harvey). She lives in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and is rather more lighthearted than any of the actresses who have portrayed her in various plays or in that movie.

Although as a species we may be going down the climate tubes, Second Avenue Caper (Hill and Wang, $22.00) proves anew that individuals can make a difference. Writer Joyce Brabner and artist Mark Zingarelli's true tale of early-1980s gay activists fighting the AIDS epidemic by running illegal antiviral drugs (and pot) from south of the border is as funny, and harrowing, as its mix of drag queens, mobsters, Cheez Whiz, and eulogies promises.  Review by R.C. Baker -Village Voice
