D+Q has an amazing winter line-up for you: Brian Chippendale (Puke Force) is visiting Montreal with Michael DeForge (Big Kids) and Nick Drnaso (Beverly) on Wednesday, February 17th at 7:00 PM. Cartoonist and Lightning Bolt drummer Chippendale’s debut with Drawn & Quarterly is a dark and dense social satire that comments on social media narcissism, the malice of the right, and the hypocrisies of the left. DeForge’s Big Kids is a coming-of-age tale about the transformative years of high school. Drnaso’s Beverly delves into the barely repressed anxieties and obsessions of suburban teens. Join Brian Chippendale, Michael DeForge, and Nick Drnaso for an evening of great comics and book signings!

Cartoonist Stephan Pastis appears at An Unlikely Story on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 1:00 PM!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Stephan Pastis is the creator of Pearls Before Swine, an acclaimed comic strip that appears in more than seven hundred newspapers and boasts a devoted following. His first book for young readers, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, was an instant New York Times bestseller with two widely acclaimed follow ups released in 2014. The fourth book in the series, Timmy Failure: Sanitized for Your Protection releases in October 2015. He lives in Northern California.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Some surprising news sends Timmy Failure on a hilarious caper as the “New York Times” best-selling series continues. “Behold You are all about to be witnesses to greatness.” In this fourth volume of Timmy Failure’s memoirs, Timmy is forced to hit the road in a cross-country trip that includes Timmy’s mom, Total the polar bear, Doorman Dave, and smells-like-a-tangerine criminal mastermind Molly Moskins. It’s a world gone mad, where good becomes bad, and Timmy Failure is a condemned man. Someone call the authorities…
