NC – Behold the Dinosaurs Launch Party

dh-hahtf

Dustin Harbin celebrates the release of “Behold the Dinosaurs” at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find on Saturday, November 29th from 2:00 – 4:00 PM!

They will have copies of the book on hand. This event is free and suitable for all ages! Bring your entire Dino-loving family!

More info on the book from publisher Nobrow here.

Introducing a brand new large format Leporello from American artist Dustin Harbin.

Can you name over 100 Dinosaurs off the top of your head? Do you know which of them came first? Which were the tallest and longest and which were the smallest and shortest? Which of them travelled by land and sea, or sky? Well if you don’t know, Behold! the Dinosaurs! will get you well on your way there, with over 100 of the most awe-inspiring dinos and a handful of other prehistoric creatures that leap, crawl, run, fly, swim and slither from one side of this 4 metre concertina to the other, right up to the point where… well, you know.

Dustin Harbin is well known in the alternative comics scene for his Diary Comics series published by Koyama Press. Dustin’s work has also appeared in Casanova, Seconds and the Hic & Hoc Illustrated Journal of Humor. He lives in North Carolina in the United States, just east of the region formed when the Ur-continents of Baltica and Laurentia collided, throwing up the Appalachian Mountains near the beginning of the Devonian Period. His favourite dinosaur is – of course – the Stegosaurus.
