"Calico Voyager" by Suzanne Sbarge

Culture Shock

By Steven Robert Allen

I love Suzanne Sbarge's art. Her work is weird but somehow also familiar. I think I've dreamed some of her paintings at one time or another. She's got a new solo exhibit currently showing at Papergami, the Japanese paper store and gallery in Nob Hill located where the old Tulane Street Deli used to be (114 Tulane SE). It will definitely be worth a peek. The show, titled Earth to Honey, runs through June 30. 255-2228.

Book Review

Hacking Into a Head

Review by John Freeman


Ian McEwan has always had one of the darkest imaginations on either side of the Atlantic. In his early short story, "Solid Geometry," a man keeps a pickled piece of male anatomy on his desk.

Jhonen Vasquez rose to cult status with one among a slew of absurd cartoons on Nickelodeon, Invader Zim. Unfortunately, that show was ultimately cancelled due to its sick and twisted content. The trouble is that sick and twisted is Vasquez' art form, as epitomized in such comics as Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, Squee and the ever delightful I Feel Sick.
