Trip Fantastic Book Release
Jason Baxter, Mac Hamilton and Derek Charm
Admission: Free to the public
Called a “a trippy tale of the world’s greatest stuntman” by io9, Trip Fantastic is a self-published “psychedelic action-comedy” about a young reality TV daredevil by the same name.
Co-written by Seattleites Jason Baxter and Mac Hamilton, with vivid, full-color artwork by New York graphic designer Derek Charm, the story is a lurid, self-aware, globe-trotting romp, with nods to everything from New French Extremism to Baywatch Nights.
Initially serialized as a free webcomic, limited print editions of the oversized issues one and two will be available at Saturday’s release party.”
Derek Charm is a New York-based graphic designer, having probably designed the Wolverine shirt you are now wearing. Along with successful art shows in San Francisco and Seattle, his artwork has appeared in the Stranger, Top Shelf 2.0, Green Candy press, and an infinite number of show fliers, tee shirt designs, album art, and his own self-published comics and zines.Jason Baxter is the in-house publicist for Seattle record label Hardly Art, having previously made a living reporting on music, film, and comics for publications like the Stranger, Comic Book Resources, the Weekly Volcano, and IGN.com. He plays in the instrumental electronic duo USF (formerly Universal Studios Florida). Mac Hamilton is his co-writer, roommate, and fellow incurable culture junkie.
