Item Details

BEST OF THE YEAR NODS FROM AMAZON, THE WASHINGTON POST, AND USA TODAY'S POP CANDY BLOG! "For years I've encountered Lisa Hanawalt's comics and illustrations piecemeal -- in various magazines and periodicals. They're always a pleasant jolt. Now, they've been assembled into one thick, blazing bludgeon. I envy you getting walloped by them all for the first time. This is a Hanawalt assault. Succumb."-Patton Oswalt "Hanawalt's My Dirty Dumb Eyes is a fantastically vivid and whimsical playground, offering page after page of absurdity, humor, and charm. The artwork is stunning and the jokes are surprising and fresh. This book is a rare and wonderful invitation inside the surreal world of Hanawalt."--Kristen Schaal "Lisa Hanawalt is as gifted of an artist as she is a hilarious writer, which is completely upsetting and unfair considering how untalented most people in this stupid world are. Her comics are brilliantly funny, gloriously weird, and visually stunning. I worship the chair she farts on."--Julie Klausner My Dirty Dumb Eyes introduces Lisa Hanawalt as a first-rank cartoonist/humorist/stalker for an audience that likes its humor idiosyncratic, at times anthropomorphic or scatological, often uncomfortable, and always sharp witted. Her world vision is intricately rendered in a full spectrum of color, unapologetically gorgeous and intensely bizarre. With movie reviews, tips for her readers, laugh-out-loud lists and short pieces such as "Rumors I've Heard About Anna Wintour," and "The Secret Lives of Chefs," Hanawalt's comedy shines, making the quotidian silly and surreal, flatulent and facetious. Hanawalt's comics have appeared in the Hairpin , VanityFair.com, the New York Times , and the Believer . She lives in Brooklyn with a dog and a comedian.

A true feast for the senses. You can't pigeonhole this work, but if forced to, i'd say this is a magical palette of thoughts, pictures, and dreams. Humorous and strange. Voyeuristic yet a jet stream of consciousness.

What a quirky delight! Hanawalt is a genius of the offbeat variety. She is hilarious! I love the insane, colorful artwork and she is so crazily imaginative. If you enjoy the comics of Dan Clowes (sans the cynicism), or if you are a David Sedaris fan, you may very well enjoy this artist. If you are a fan of the TV show MR SHOW with David Cross, this gal will be up your alley. What a pleasant surprise this turned out to be. For those who appreciate bizarre imagination and humor, this one's for you!

This is really unique, clever, individually hilarious words and art. Reading "My Dirty Dumb Eyes" is like seeing a really funny and quirky stand up. If you want some and bizarre laughs look for Lisa Hanawalt.

This book is lewd, graphic, and highly entertaining. I loved the movie review notes. Ms Hanawalt sure knows how to draw horses doing silly stuff. The full page illustrations look as if a young demon drew them on its nursery wall. Strawberry chewing tobacco for the brain.
