It's no secret why Michael Kupperman is a favorite of Robert Smigel and Conan O'Brien--he's one of the most weirdly funny writers around. Kupperman has written scripts for DC Comics and has appeared in the New York Times, LA Weekly, and The Wall Street Journal. New York magazine calls his comic book series, Tales Designed to Thrizzle, "the dirtiest, funniest comic book to come out in a long time."
Kupperman presents a power-point display in which he performs his way through several of his comics, both new and old, doing all the voices. The show includes "Hercules vs. Zeus," the 3-D comic from Nickelodeon Magazine. Other comics performed include a Snake'N'Bacon adventure and Love's Tiny Robot.
Michael Kupperman's comics and illustrations have appeared in publications ranging from The New Yorker to Screw. His book of comics, Snake'N'Bacon's Cartoon Cabaret, appeared in 2000. An animated "Snake'N'Bacon" pilot with live-action segments was recently completed for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
Kupperman's comics appear in Tales Designed to Thrizzle, published by Fantagraphics. Tales Designed to Thrizzle: Volume One was released in July 2009.
