UK – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Signing

Reinhard Kleist appears in conversation with David Quantick at Gosh Comics on Saturday the 14th of April, 7:30 – 9:00 PM to celebrate the launch of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book!

In his graphic biography Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of the musician, novelist, poet and actor. It is, according to Nick Cave himself, “a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World”.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book collects Kleist’s moody and expressive portraits of the musician and his band, spanning thirty years of writing, recording and live performance. Kleist also returns us to Nick Cave’s imaginative world with comic book reimaginings of “Deanna”, “The Good Son” and “Stagger Lee”.

Filled with visual delights, this record-sized art book is a kaleidoscopic portrait of Nick Cave’s wide-ranging career as a storyteller, musician and cultural icon.

Reinhart Kleist’s award-winning graphic novels include Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness, The Olympic Dream: The Story of Samia Yusuf Omar, and Castro: A Graphic Novel.

David Quantick is a writer and journalist whose recent work includes work on Veep with Armando Iannucci and How to Be a Writer: Conversations With Writers About Writing.

UK – Adventures In Science Signing

Krent Able, Geoff Senior, Shaky Kane, Matt Fitch, Chris Baker, Joe Totti, and Mark Stafford sign the ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE! anthology at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore on Saturday 31st March, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE! is a neon-soaked, darkly comic, technicolor graphic anthology daring to tell the fates of imagined futures!

Dead Canary Comics have assembled a crack team of artistic architects to build worlds beyond imagining! These pioneering pencil prodigals have bled blood to bring you nightmare visions of a futuristic prison system, the next stage in warfare, the humdrum life of single-women, and everything in between!

Each story is a self-contained ‘what if’, a pulpy adventuristic delight of scientific dreaming, a sideways glance at “what could be”. Some stories are funny, some are serious, some are deep… all are guaranteed to entertain.

These tales have been lovingly curated and compiled to make a fantastical, mind-blowing graphic novel by the team that brought you The Fitzroy Comic, Reddin, Last Driver and The Frogman Trilogy.
