MARBLE.season

Gilbert Hernandez signs at Powell’s Books on Sunday, April 21st at 7:30 pm!

Press Release:

Marble Season (Drawn & Quarterly) is the semiautobiographical novel by the acclaimed cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez, author of the epic masterpiece Palomar and co-creator, with his brothers, Jaime and Mario, of the groundbreaking Love and Rockets comic book series. Marble Season tells the untold stories from the early years of these American comic legends but also portrays the reality of life in a large family in 1960s suburban California. Pop-culture references — TV shows, comic books, and music — saturate this evocative story of a young family navigating cultural and neighborhood norms set against the golden age of the American dream and the silver age of comics. An all-ages story, Marble Season masterfully explores the redemptive and timeless power of storytelling and role play in childhood, making it a coming-of-age story that is as resonant with the children of today as with the children of the ’60s.
