Lynda Barry on Tour

One of the saving graces of Amber, Matt, Wilson and Cole moving to Seattle is that three of my favorite cartoonists lived there:  Lynda Barry, Matt Groening and Charles Burns.  There must be something in the Pacific Northwestern air that brings out the oddly creative in a good way.

Randomly googling recently I came across a Drawn and Quarterly blog post about Lynda's new book and her upcoming tour to some of my favorite cities (San Francisco, LA, Portland, Vancouver, Chicago and NYC).

In 2000, on a visit to Seattle, I bought my first Lynda Barry book The! Greatest! of! Marlys! published by Seattle based Sasquatch Books.  Her latest Picture This: The Near-sighted Monkey Book will be published in November by Drawn and Quarterly.  I can't wait to get my copy.

Wikipedia has more info on Lynda Barry here. and you can pre order the book from Amazon by clicking the link below.
