Sharply observant, laugh-out-loud funny comics from the Believer cartoonist and New York Times illustratorMy Dirty Dumb Eyes is the highly anticipated debut collection from the award-winning cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Lisa Hanawalt's My Dirty Dumb Eyes " My Dirty Dumb Eyes is a zero-attention-span assemblage of surreal one-page drawings, clusters of gag cartoons ("How We Can Tell Martha Stewart's Drunk"), short comics stories, illustrated movie reviews and garish stoner tableaus. They add up to a wildly entertaining portfolio from an artist with a masterly painting and drawing hand, obsessions with animals and genitals, and a very weird, intentionally dopey sense of humor." - New York Times
