00sdumplins-can

Press Release:

Little Island Comics is proud to welcome Craig Thompson, author of the new all ages graphic novel SPACE DUMPLINS, to Toronto for a special event on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 5:45 PM!

Craig will be presenting from Space Dumplins, his new graphic novel (published by the good folks at Scholastic Canada) on Wednesday, October 28th, at Palmerston Library! Craig will also be signing and sketching for fans, and it’s gonna be a fun event. While the new book is intended for a younger audience, fans of all ages are welcome to attend this free event.

Our thanks to Scholastic Canada, Toronto Public Library, and Drawn & Quarterly for helping us put this event together.

About SPACE DUMPLINS:
For Violet Marlocke, family is the most important thing in the whole galaxy. So when her father goes missing while on a hazardous job, she can’t just sit around and do nothing. To get him back, Violet throws caution to the stars and sets out with a group of misfit friends on a quest to find him. But space is vast and dangerous, and she soon discovers that her dad is in big, BIG trouble. With her father’s life on the line, nothing is going to stop Violet from trying to rescue him and keep her family together.

Visionary graphic novel creator Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi) brings all of his wit, warmth, and humor to create a brilliantly drawn story for all ages. Set in a distant yet familiar future, Space Dumplins weaves themes of family, friendship, and loyalty into a grand space adventure filled with quirky aliens, awesome spaceships, and sharp commentary on our environmentally challenged world.
