Lisa Hanawalt's My Dirty Dumb Eyes: In the office and soaked in my drool.

We have so many great books coming out this spring, I don't even know how to go about playing favourites. Wait a sec, no, I love them all equally. Like children. Or little baby lambs. Because they kind of feel like my children. And adorable lambs. And here I am now, releasing them out into the world, timid yet excited, like a proud ewe watching her babies mature and enter the world independently, on newly sturdy little legs. Hoo boy. I need to eat lunch. Anyway, My Dirty Dumb Eyes is coming your way in May, which means advances just arrived at D+Q HQ. And look at it! Stunning. Just stunning.

A full view of the cover. Just look at that dog 'copter madness! Also please note that VERY impressive list of blurbs on the back. And because you probably can't read them very well from the photo, here they are:

“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

“Lisa 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

“Lisa’s work makes me think of lots of words beginning with F: Fearsome, Fabulous, Ferocious, Funny. With very Fine drawing.”
—Michael Kupperman

Gosh. These endpapers. THESE ENDPAPERS.

And because Patton Oswalt did enough yapping about this book already, and did so more hilariously than I ever could, I'll just leave you with the below photos. SUCCUMB.

My Dirty Dumb Eyes will debut at TCAF; the rest of you can find it at finer bookstores and comic shops later in May.
