Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch sign at Star Clipper Comics on Friday, June 22 at 7 p.m.!
St. Louis-based creators Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch will both introduce new collections of their work published by Drawn & Quarterly Friday, June 22 at 7 p.m.!
In GLORIANA, Kevin Huizenga exposes the mechanics that underpin everyday life. Huizenga has an understated, quiet approach to story writing that allows his characters (and his readers) the self-awareness to recognize the humor and tragedy of the quotidian.
In Dan Zettwoch’s BIRDSEYE BRISTOE, a mysterious stranger comes to town… only the town is not really a town and the stranger is a gigantic cell-phone tower! The town of Birdseye Bristoe (a portmanteau created from an interstate sign that points to two real towns) has only one real permanent resident, an old-timer known only as Uncle. Birdseye Bristoe begins with the destruction of the cell tower and works backward to unravel the story of its fall.
Meet the artists at an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m., and get your picture taken with the characters of GLORIANA and BIRDSEYE BRISTOE!
Exclusive prints by the artists will be offered with any purchase of a Kevin Huizenga or Dan Zettwoch book by Drawn & Quarterly.
