The Devastator is a critically-acclaimed humor publisher founded in 2009 by editors Geoffrey Golden and Amanda Meadows. We push the Humor genre forward with unconventional comedy books, comics, and zines. Authors include comedy writers and cartoonists stolen from The Onion, The Daily Show, Adult Swim, Fantagraphics, and Marvel. Authors also include people you have never heard of, but make you laugh so hard you will remember them.
The Devastator publishes 12 titles per year: a varied mix of format-bending, concept-driven books, comics, and zines, many with interactive elements, and tonight we’ll be debuting two new books, including:
Dream It! Screw It!
30 Years of Rejected Disney Park Ideas by Imagineer Dipp Disney
by Geoffrey Golden
with illustrations by Shing Yin Khor, Elan’ Trinidad, Reid Psaltis and Marc Palm
It’s the official launch event and signing for the hilarious new book by bestselling author Geoffrey Golden: Dream It! Screw It! – 30 Years of Rejected Disney Park Ideas by Imagineer Dipp Disney.
Join Geoffrey Golden (Disney Princess comics) and special guest comedian Dana Snyder (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Drunk on Disney) for a presentation on the life and rejected ideas of Imagineer Dipp Disney, Walt’s dumb and constantly drunk cousin. Get your book signed, then check out parody concept artwork on display from the book, like the Haunted Mansons teaser poster and schematics for Star Wars: Blast Off to Bureaucracy!
Disney theme park Imagineers think up hundreds of ideas for rides and attractions that never get used. But no Imagineer has created more terrible and rejected ideas than Dipp Disney. Walt’s cousin was a sloppy drunk, a complete idiot, and a loveable showman, whose 7000 attraction ideas never saw the light of day… until now. This mock homage to Disney Imagineering contains Dipp’s most ridiculous concepts, like the Haunted Mansons, the Hindenburg Sky Resort, and Judge Doom’s Toon Execution Room. Includes concept art, photos and stories spanning decades.
