Seth Fisher was the wildly unique cartoonist on such books as Green Lantern: Willworld, Flash: Time Flies, Vertigo Pop: Tokyo, Happydale: Devils in the Desert, and Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big In Japan died in a tragic accident last year. This Friday (That’s tonight) he’s being remembered at Secret Headquarters in LA called Flowering Nose: The Art of Seth Fisher. Not only will Fisher’s original be displayed, but two NEW mini-comics are being offered for sale:
With work that channels the likes of Darrow, Moebius and Otomo, we are engulfed in a world of candy colored, calculated chaos. Fisher’s pages are oozing with complicated beasts and the visions of sleepwalking dreams. Brains are exploding and monsters are comfortable among the overgrowth of these surreal, tightly rendered environments. An Eisner award nominee, Fisher’s artwork will continue to inspire far into the future.
In addition to Fisher’s original artwork, we will have available for purchase two mini comics: Bob’s Life and The Man With a Thousand Noses. SHQ will also offer a never before seen (or printed) mini sketchbook which features Seth’s Batman:Snow concepts and layouts. Copies of Seth’s Marvel and DC work will also be on hand.
All proceeds from the art, mini’s and books will be going to Seth’s son’s educational fund. If you cannot make it to Secret Headquarters for the show, but would like to donate, Paypal payments can be made directly to email@example.com
Opening Reception: Friday, November 9th, 2007, 8pm – 11pm
Fisher’s friends at Isotope remember him here.
