About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.

Celebrate the publication of Diary of a Wimpy Kid #11: Double Down with author Jeff Kinney! The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his “creative side.” As if that’s not scary enough, Halloween’s just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle. When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie…and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg’s troubles?

Artists Nate Powell (March, Year of the Beasts, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole) and Kerascoët (Beautiful Darkness, Miss Don’t Touch Me, Beauty) appear at the Million Year Picnic on Friday October 28th from 5:30 – 7:00 PM! They will also appear that weekend at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE).
Nate Powell is a New York Times best-selling graphic novelist who began self-publishing at age 14. Nate illustrates the March trilogy – the acclaimed graphic novel autobiography of civil rights icon John Lewis – in his distinctive loose yet sophisticated style. He also creates comics of his own, such as You Don’t Say, Any Empire, and Swallow Me Whole, which further showcase his skills as a thoughtful storyteller.
Kerascoët is the shared pen name of illustrators Marie Pommepuy and Sébastien Cosset. The duo are best known in the US for their Eisner-nominated graphic novel Beautiful Darkness, where their fanciful cartooning frames a grim tale of mortality. The married couple met while attending the Olivier de Serres art school and now work together in comics and animation.
