BAD ATTITUDE: THE ART OF SPAIN RODRIGUEZ
NYC PREMIERE Spain Rodriguez, like his contemporaries Robert Crumb and Art Spiegelman, was part of the vanguard of underground cartoonists who burst forth in the 1960s and 70s to push comics forward as an art form. Spain took inspiration from his varied experiences in the Road Vultures motorcycle gang and in left-wing politics to create visceral and vulgar comics such as Trashman, Mean Bitch Thrills, and Che: A Graphic Biography. Spain’s wife, filmmaker Susan Stern, directs this endearing portrait that explores his career’s peaks and controversies. –Thom Powers
