Launch Party: Gonzo

Publisher SelfMadeHero is having a party and you’re invited to celebrate the launch of Gonzo: A Graphic Biography Of Hunter S. Thompson by Will Bingley and Anthony Hope-Smith.

“If you’re going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you’re going to be locked up.”

Over the course of Hunter S. Thompson’s extraordinary life he was publically branded a bum, a vandal, a thief, a liar, an addict, a freak and a psychopath. Some of these were true. Yet, even when compared to the most significant figures of the 20th century, his legacy remains a brilliantly vital force. This is his story - the story of a troubled kid who went on to become an international icon, a story that plumbs the darkest depths of American society and charts the now-legendary adventures that birthed Gonzo journalism and a lifestyle beyond imagination.

A free event, but RSVP essential to douglas [at] selfmadehero [dot] com or tel 0207 487 4395.

Where: London Print Studio, 425 Harrow Road, London W10
When: Thursday, December 2, 2010 - 6.30pm to 9.30pm
