No. 963 of 1000 signed and numbered copies. Glossy illustrated boards, 20.8 by 21 cm, [50] pp., illus. Fine, unread copy. Published in conjunction with his show of the same name at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, this book features fifty of Egan’s Pop Icon paintings, including morbid—yet folksy—renditions of Hello Kitty, the Hulk, Yoda, Godzilla, He-Man, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, etc. “Drawing inspiration from the world of Folk Art, Mike focuses on giving a raw simplicity to the shapes and motifs he paints, and renders them with intentionally naive brushstrokes; these all-important stylistic touches add to the handmade feel of his work. While Egan’s subject matter may be dark, he contrasts this with a bold visual aesthetic filled with bright color and a certain playfulness, which successfully injects an element of hope into the otherwise somber themes.”3 No text, only color images. While Egan is primarily a painter, some of his designs have been made into vinyl figures, including some in collaboration with Frank Kozik. First Edition.
