The cult section of the literary world

Andrew Goldfarb

Reminiscent of Edward Gorey and Jim Woodring, A. Goldfarb writes bizarro comic books and illustrated novels.

“Creepy, magical, weird, surreal. Dark and hip. ” – Mike Tolento

“Genuinely creepy. Like early David Lynch, like ‘Eraserhead.’ Goldfarb needs help.” – Shannon Wheeler, creator of Too Much Coffee Man


ANDREW GOLDFARB currently suffers from acute myopia and an inflammation of the olfactory organs. He is reputed to be buried in San Francisco, with occasional resurrections in New Orleans. He performs as a one man surrealistic rock and roll band under the moniker “The Slow Poisoner,” singing songs of will-o-the-wisps and woebegone wretches. Andrew is also the author of the long-running comix art melodrama “Ogner Stump’s One Thousand Sorrows,” of which the first eighty-six have been completed. Mr. Goldfarb intends to go over Niagra Falls in a barrel at the age of one hundred.

Andrew takes the imagination of his bizarro comic books and applies them to novel form in “The Ballad of a Slow Poisoner.” This wonderfully-mad illustrated book was one of the most successful e-books of its time when originally published in electronic form, outselling both Stephen King and the Bible at for over a month.

It is important to note that all of Goldfarb’s fiction, music, and comics take place within the same darkly antique universe of shadowy desperadoes and haunted love affairs.
