Chris Ware, Charles Burns, and Chip Kidd appear at Seattle’s Town Hall on Monday, October 22, 2012 from 7:30 – 9:00pm.

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. $5.

In the world of graphic novels—heck; in the world of publishing—superstars just don’t shine much more brightly than these two sterling comix stars: Chris Ware and Charles Burns. And—lucky us—each has a book coming out this fall. Ware, whose work recalls the greatest 20th-century cartoonists with a style and worldview utterly, unmistakably, his own, has packed his new graphic novel, Building Stories, with advanced wood-pulp technology, ambition, emotions—and exquisite artistry. And Burns, who grew up in Seattle and crafted the semi-autobiographical magnum opus Black Hole, brings The Hive, the second part of his epic masterpiece trilogy of graphic horror. Presented as part of the Town Hall Arts & Culture series with Fantagraphics.

Tickets are $5 at townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating.

Charles Burns signs on October 21st from 7:00PM – 8:00PM.

From the creator of Black Hole: the first volume of an epic masterpiece of graphic fiction in brilliant color.

X’ed Out, unlike Black Hole, has not been previously serialized, and every unnervingly meticulous panel is more tantalizing than the last. Drawing inspiration from such diverse influences as Herge and William Burroughs, Charles Burns has given us a dazzling spectral fever-dream and a comic-book masterpiece
