WA – Building Comix Panel

   

Chris Ware, Charles Burns, and Chip Kidd appear at Seattle’s Town Hall on Monday, October 22, 2012 from 7:30 – 9:00pm.

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $5.

In the world of graphic novels—heck; in the world of publishing—superstars just don’t shine much more brightly than these two sterling comix stars: Chris Ware and Charles Burns. And—lucky us—each has a book coming out this fall. Ware, whose work recalls the greatest 20th-century cartoonists with a style and worldview utterly, unmistakably, his own, has packed his new graphic novel, Building Stories, with advanced wood-pulp technology, ambition, emotions—and exquisite artistry. And Burns, who grew up in Seattle and crafted the semi-autobiographical magnum opus Black Hole, brings The Hive, the second part of his epic masterpiece trilogy of graphic horror. Presented as part of the Town Hall Arts & Culture series with Fantagraphics.

Tickets are $5 at townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
