How'd Ya Like a Black Eye, Punk?


Ivan Brunetti, Lilli Carre, Paul Nudd , Onsmith and upcoming Gapers Block book club author Paul Hornschemeier will sign the comic and essay collection Black Eye #1: Graphic Transmissions to Cause Ocular Hypertension tomorrow night at Quimby's. The jury's out on whether it actually provokes the titular medical condition, but it was badass enough to be seized at the Canadian border on obscenity charges a month ago. Quimby's, 1854 W. North Ave., Friday, June 24, 7pm.
