CAKE DEBUT: Demon Gunz by Bernie McGovern
DemonGunz: A Minicomic Anthology presents the first eleven issues of the autobiographic DemonGun and DemonDust books. Chronicling the first months of sobering up from a decade of alcoholism, DemonGunz wastes no time before tumbling into bizarre reflections on the creative process. Embark on its dreamworld meanderings through impossible phenomena and the heart-warming friendship of a disembodied nervous system.Self published, 134 pages, B&W
Bernie McGovern is a cartoonist, puppet designer, animator, and teacher living in his native Chicago. His real-life adventures are documented in the new comic “DemonTears,” released by Hic & Hoc Publications, alongside the mini-comics “DemonGunz” and “DemonDust.” He loves demons. Book 7 of the self published, terribly long, epic series “An Army of Lovers will be Beaten” will be available this year at CAKE, possibly near a plate of heart-shaped snacks. By day, Bernie is an Artist in Residence with the nonprofit Snow City Arts Foundation, bringing school credit and art education to children while staying in Chicago hospitals.
