Institute 193 is pleased to present SPUD CRAZY, an art-edition graphic novel by JT Dockery and Nick Tosches!
Institute 193 and J.T. Dockery would like to publish SPUD CRAZY, an excerpt from a graphic novel currently in the works by JT Dockery and Nick Tosches. Our limited "art-edition" version will include 40 illustrated pages with an essay written by Bob Levin, author of "The Pirates and the Mouse: Disney’s War Against the Counterculture" and "Outlaws, Rebels, Freethinkers, Pirates & Pornographers" among other titles. Richard Hell, the frontman of the early punk rock band Richard Hell & The Voidoids, and an accomplished novelist will write an introduction for the book. Spud Crazy will also be accompanied by a musical soundtrack composed by J.T. Dockery, Robert Beatty, Justin Eslinger, and Brian Manley otherwise known as the Spud Imperials. The book will be printed as an oversize "comic" measuring 9" x 12" and will be sealed in a printed glassine envelope. Each issue will be signed and numbered by the artist. 200 copies will be made. This publication will be accompanied by an exhibition at Institute 193, opening Thursday, February 3, 2011 at 6 PM.
