The Art of Benjamin Marra

I have the excuse of living 3,000 miles away (in Portland, Oregon’s lobster-crazy sister city) but the rest of you really have no good reason to not visit the Benjamin Marra show opening on April 26th at Floating World Comics. Floating World is just about the best comic book retailer I’ve ever been to, and Marra’s work is loads of fun–it’s like he crawled into the technicolor blood-and-guts-infused subconscious of a pimply junior high school student, circa 1987, and pulled out a bundle of spit-covered, trashy bargain-bin comic books.
