QC – Boundless Release Party

Join award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki (SuperMutant Magic Academy, This One Summer) on Friday, May 26th at 7:00 PM for the launch of her new book: the inventive and incisive Boundless.

At once fantastical and realist, Boundless explores the intersection (and overlap) between the virtual and IRL worlds. From Jenny, who becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself; to Helen, who finds her clothes growing baggy and her shoes looser as she shrinks away to nothingness, these evocative, strange, and magical stories showcase Tamaki’s skill as an artist and storyteller.

JILLIAN TAMAKI is an illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto. She is the co-creator along with her cousin Mariko Tamaki of the graphic novel Skim, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. Their second graphic novel This One Summer earned a Governor General’s Award and a Caldecott Honor. Tamaki’s first collection of her own comics was the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-winning SuperMutant Magic Academy.

MA – Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body Signing

Press Release:

Harvard Book Store welcomes the bestselling author of An Untamed State, Bad Feminist, and Difficult Women ROXANE GAY for a presentation of her latest book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body on Wednesday, June 14th at 7:00 PM.

About Hunger:
New York Times–bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life.

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. Hunger is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn’t yet been told but needs to be.

Signing Guidelines
Roxane will sign books for anyone who would like, including backlist. In the interest of time, we will only be doing personalizing for copies of Hunger. In the interest of time, no posed photos with the author. Photos can be taken from the line, only.

Purchase the Book
Featured event books will be for sale at the event. Thank you for supporting this author series with your purchases.

OR – Visual Abuse Release Party

Jim Blanchard appears at Floating World Comics for the Visual Abuse release party and exhibit on Thursday June 1, 2017 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

Visual Abuse is an outrageous and optically rich collection of the halcyon days of illustrator and cartoonist Jim Blanchard, whose work from 1982–2002 intersected with punk rock, grunge, psychedelia, alternative comics, “zine” culture, portraiture, and “girlie” art.

The book gathers Blanchard’s different eras and disparate art styles into a cohesive whole. After self-publishing the punk rock/art fanzine Blatch in Oklahoma, Jim brought his act to Seattle, Washington in 1987, where the nascent “grunge” rock scene was poised to erupt. Visual Abuse assembles the best of Blanchard’s LP covers, posters and flyers from the hardcore punk era through grunge, including iconic Black Flag, Nirvana, and Soundgarden posters. Augmenting the posters are exclusive photographs from the shows, including shots by famed photographer Charles Peterson.

Also chronicled are page after page of Blanchard’s obsessive psychedelic art, bizarre sociopathic comics, exquisitely detailed pop culture portraits, twisted “glamour girl” art, and some tongue-waggin’ eyeball-poppin’ freaks, making this an overwhelming and long-overdue compendium by an elusive, dedicated, and complex artist.

UK – The Life and Times Of Martha Washington In The 21st Century Signing

Dave Gibbons will be signing The Life and Times Of Martha Washington In The 21st Century at our London Megastore on Wednesday 7th June at 6:00pm.

Martha’s story begins in the squalid corridors of a maximum-security housing project, where a young girl will rise from the war-torn streets of Chicago to battle injustice in a world insane with corruption.

Her fight will take her far, from the frontlines of the second American Civil War to the cold, unforgiving reaches of space.

This edition collects remastered versions of every Martha Washington story, an extensive behind-the-scenes section, an introduction by Frank Miller, and a brand-new cover by Dave Gibbons!

Dave Gibbons is one of Britain’s finest comic artists, whose most famous work is the multi-award- winning Watchmen. Since then he has drawn series including Batman, Doctor Who, and Give Me Liberty, and has written Batman vs. Predator, Green Lantern, and World’s Finest, as well as his own graphic novel The Originals.
