OR – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorScott McCloud appears in conversation with Daniel H. Wilson at Powell’s Books on Wednesday, February 11th at 7:00 PM!

David Smith is giving his life for his art — literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding “what” to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the 11th hour isn’t making it any easier! Scott McCloud’s The Sculptor (First Second) is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and of the world’s greatest city gorgeously depicted at street level. It’s about the small, warm, human moments of everyday life… and the great, surging forces that lie just under the surface. McCloud wrote the book on how comics work (Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art); now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking, funny, and unforgettable new work. McCloud will be joined in conversation by Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robogenesis and How to Survive a Robot Uprising.

TX – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorPress Release:

Austin Books is excited to welcome back Scott McCloud, creator of the new First Second graphic novel, The Sculptor. Join us for a special Q&A on Sunday, February 8th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. This is a not-to-be missed discussion with the man that showed us exactly why we love comics so much in Understanding Comics!

About Scott McCloud:
Scott McCloud has been making comics professionally since 1984. But even more than his series Zot! or his Superman stories, McCloud is best known as the comic industry’s theorist with his books Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics, and Making Comics. He also created the concept of 24 Hour Comics Day and has talked about the medium around the world.

About The Sculptor:
David Smith is giving his life for his art – literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the eleventh hour isn’t making it any easier. This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous portrait of the world’s greatest city. It’s also about the small, warm, human moment of everyday life. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work, now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking new work.
