QC – Why Art? Signing

Press Release:

Eleanor Davis appears at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 7:00 PM to present her newest book, Why Art? A work of art unto itself, Why Art? is part pseudo-serious artistic philosophy and part surrealist narrative that seeks to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve.

What is “Art”? It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? In Why Art?, acclaimed graphic novelist Eleanor Davis (How To Be Happy) leavens her exploration of these concepts with a sense of humour and a thirst for challenging preconceptions of art worthy of Magritte, instantly drawing the reader in as a willing accomplice in her quest.

Eleanor Davis has been honoured by the Eisner Awards and has won a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Her works include How to Be Happy (Fantagraphics Books, 2014) and You & a Bike & a Road (Koyama Press, 2017), and she contributed a short piece to the acclaimed comics anthology NOW (Fantagraphics, 2017). She lives in Athens, GA with fellow cartoonist Drew Weing.

ON – Old Man Hawkeye Signing

Press Release:

Paradise Comics is proud to present a signing with writer Ethan Sacks on Thursday, February 15th 2018 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

Ethan is the writer of Marvel’s Old Man Hawkeye, with art by Marco Checchetto. Follow an aged Clint Barton on his quest for vengeance in a new series that returns us to a world ruled by Super Villains first visited in Old Man Logan.

Over twenty years at the New York Daily News, Ethan Sacks covered movies, television, comic books and geek culture. He’s profiled a who’s who of Hollywood personalities from Affleck to Ziyi Zhang, traveled to New Zealand to be filmed with performance capture technology, and broke the story of Marvel Comics’ decision to kill off Captain America, a scoop that was picked up by more than 4,000 outlets around the world. But eventually everyone has to grow up—so, now he writes comic books for Marvel like a real adult.

Previously for Marvel Ethan has worked on Secret Empire: Brave New World.

Copies of both the first and second issues of Old Man Hawkeye will be available at the store. Don’t miss this chance to meet and get your book signed by this up and coming writer at Marvel!

A CGC Signature Series will also be available .
