Recommended by Joule Zelman

Follow naive bipedal rodent (?) Frank to the very end of the Unifactor as Pupshaw and Pushpaw savor the hedonistic delights of Poochytown. If that sentence holds no meaning for you, congratulations: You are experiencing the delirium of a Jim Woodring graphic novel for the first time. Woodring is a local genius who inks morphing cartoon dreamscapes and characters in stories unconstrained by words or traditional story lines. Poochytown is the latest installment in the adventures of Frank, whom Woodring introduced back in the 1990s in an eponymous Fantagraphics-issued series. If you saw his exhibition The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunset and Wept at the Frye last year, you know how the Boschian bloom of his ink manifolds can lead your senses into a tripped-out daze. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Woodring discuss his latest tome with cartoonist Simon Hanselmann.
