“Fingerman is a brilliant satirist, artist and mind.”
-Trey Parker, South Park; The Book of Mormon
Bob Fingerman is the award-winning creator of such critically acclaimed graphic novels as Beg the Question, White Like She and Recess Pieces, as well as the novel Bottomfeeder. In Bottomfeeder, Fingerman took on the vampire genre, tossing away the typical gothic and romantic trappings in favor of portraying the down to earth story of a working class Queens-bred vampire. In Recess Pieces, he whipped up a bloody maelstrom of adorable moppets and the living dead set within the confines of a school. With the satirical From the Ashes, Fingerman coined the phrase “speculative memoir,” and pitted himself and his wife, Michele, against the post-apocalyptic ruins of the world.
In 2013, under the auspices of longtime fan and creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, Fingerman’s signature work in comics, Minimum Wage, was collected in the coffee table book Maximum Minimum Wage, spurring him to return to Minimum Wage as an ongoing series from Image.
It is Fingerman’s borderline obsession with things post-apocalyptic that lead him to create the art featured in this show, Fingus Apocalypticon, primarily featuring a host of cuddly mutants and original art from From the Ashes.
Show runs 6 weeks.
