Henry & Glenn Gang-Bang: Group Art Show and Book Signing; La Luz De Jesus Gallery, LA; Feb 18th


Sometimes I really wish that I lived in LA. This is one of those times!

From the press release:

WHO: Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scot Nobles, Levon Jihanian and more than a dozen guest artists
WHAT: Henry & Glenn Gang-Bang: group art show and book signing
WHERE: La Luz de Jesus Gallery, 4633 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027
WEB: www.laluzdejesus.com
WHEN: Friday, February 18th, 2011 8 - 11 p.m.
WHY: Because it’s a hit!

Henry & Glenn Forever, a comic book by the Los Angeles art fraternity Igloo Tornado that finally answers the question, “what if Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig were a little more than ‘friends?’” has become a cult phenomenon in the comics and music scene since its release in April. Now, Igloo Tornado members Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scot Nobles and Levon Jihanian have put the question to more than a dozen other artists, who will offer their own answers in a group show opening Feb. 18 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Hollywood. Participants include critically acclaimed L.A.-based artist Eric Yahnker, low-brow superstars Coop and Clayton Brothers, and alternative cartoonists Ed Luce, Johnny Ryan and Kaz as part of a diverse group of artists, cartoonists and oddballs.

The Igloo Tornado will also debut their own new Henry & Glenn-themed works in the show and be on hand at the opening to sign copies of Henry & Glenn Forever. The Misfits cover band GLENN will perform live.

Henry & Glenn Forever has sold more than 30,000 copies since its release by the Microcosm imprint Cantankerous Titles less than a year ago. What started as a joke scrawled on a bar napkin has become a bona fide hit, spawning dozens of print and online write-ups from outlets including Spin, National Public Radio, MTV, LA Weekly, Decibel, Maximum Rock’n’roll and Razorcake. While the comic book has reportedly inspired outrage from singer Glenn Danzig and indifference from former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins, the lighthearted send-up of two of punk’s most macho icons has gained thousands of fans.

Artist list: Jose Gabriel Angeles, Bald Eagles, Ben Claasen, Shane Brown, COOP, Clayton Brothers, Jordan Crane, Dave Davenport, Justin Hall, Levon Jihanian, Rusty Jordan, KAZ, Keenan Marshall Keller, Ed Luce, Patrick Morgan, Kiyoshi Nakazawa, Tom Neely, Scot Nobles, Jonah Olsen, Shauna Peterson, Johnny Ryan, Reuben Splatterbeast, Gin Stevens, Billy Reynolds, Jeff Ward, Steven Weissman, Eric Yahnker and more…

  1. [...] Johnny Ryan has another new strip in Vice Magazine. This time, he’s doing a play on the Henry and Glen Forever comic, but giving it a Nu Wave slant, with Mark Mothersbaugh and Gary Numan. I can’t be 100% sure, but I assume that the strip will also be Johnny’s piece for the Henry and Glen Gangbang on February 18th (see here). [...]
