Glenn Eichler and Joe Infurnari’s MUSH! SLED DOGS WITH ISSUES. Venus wants Buddy to quit asking her to “make puppies.” Buddy wants Winston’s help wooing Venus. Winston wants Guy’s respect. Guy wants Dolly’s job. Dolly wants to know the meaning of it all. Nobody knows what Fiddler really wants, not even Fiddler. But mostly . . . these sled dogs just want to run. Sounds simple? It should be, but even dogs have their office politics. Office politics with sharp, sharp teeth. From Colbert Report writer Glenn Eichler and dogchanneling artist Joe “Fur” Infurnari comes a postmodern tale of heroism on the tundra, epic romance, and yellow snow. (Hint: don’t eat it.) Mush! is Arrested Development meets Call of the Wild-two great tastes that taste pretty funny together.
Glenn Eichler has written for numerous TV series, in addition to developing and executive producing the MTV animated hit Daria. His previous graphic novel was Stuffed! with artist, Nick Bertozzi
Joe Infurnari grew up with his nose cold, wet, and buried in comics. His work has been recognized with multiple Eisner nominations, numerous publications, and membership in the prestigious web comics collective, ACT-I-VATE. He is a cat person.
Nick Abadzis’ award winning, LAIKA with Alternative Endings.
Laika was the abandoned puppy destined to become Earth’s first space traveler. This is her journey. Nick Abadzis masterfully blends fiction and fact in the intertwined stories of three compelling lives. Along with Laika, there is Korolev, once a political prisoner, now a driven engineer at the top of the Soviet space program, and Yelena, the lab technician responsible for Laika’s health and life. This intense triangle is rendered with the pitch-perfect emotionality of classics like Because of Winn Dixie, Shiloh, and Old Yeller. Abadzis gives life to a pivotal moment in modern history, casting light on the hidden moments of deep humanity behind history. Laika’s story will speak straight to your heart.
BookCourt is proud to celebrate TRIP CITY, the Brooklyn-filtered literary arts salon: http://welcometotripcity.com/
