Brian Chippendale, Michael DeForge, and Nick Drnaso sign at The Beguiling on Thursday February 18th, 2016 at 7:00 PM!
D&Q has an amazing winter line-up for you: Brian Chippendale (Puke Force) is hitting the road with Michael DeForge (Big Kids) and Nick Drnaso (Beverly), and the date for their Toronto tour stop is Thursday, February 18th, 2016. Come see all three present from their new work and sign and hang out and all that fun stuff. It should be good times.
Cartoonist and Lightning Bolt drummer Chippendale’s debut with Drawn & Quarterly, Puke Force, is a dark and dense social satire that comments on social media narcissism, the malice of the right, and the hypocrisies of the left.
DeForge’s Big Kids is a coming-of-age tale about the transformative years of high school.
Drnaso’s Beverly delves into the barely repressed anxieties and obsessions of suburban teens.
Join Brian Chippendale, Michael DeForge, and Nick Drnaso for an evening of great comics and book signings! Presented by The Beguiling Books & Art and Drawn & Quarterly.
