The Slow Poisoner Summer Casketeering Tour 2009

SLow Poisoner

For those of you who don’t know Andrew Goldfarb, he is a bizarro author of many talents. For starters he writes excellent books, such as “Ballad of a Slow Poisoner” and his upcoming children’s book “Slub Glub in the Weird World of the Weeping Willows.” He is also a comic book writer, of “Ogner Stump’s One Thousand Sorrows.”

And he plays in the surreal one-man rock and roll band, “The Slow Poisoner.”

My favorite part of Andrew’s work is that all of his books, comics, and music take place within the same world and usually feature the same characters. His world is like David Lynch mixed with Dr. Suess and perhaps even Edward Gorey. I can’t recommend his art, music, and stories enough.

His one-man band is going on tour this month, so if he’s coming to your area make sure to go check him out:
