As a special Will Eisner Week presentation Dave Wachter will be releasing his latest work “Breath of Bones: a Tale of the Golem” at the ToonSeum on March 8th from 6pm-9pm. With a dark and gritty feel, “Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem” touches on both historical elements and horror as a new edition of the Breath of Bones series designed by Wachter and Steve Niles

About the Book:

A British plane crashes in a Jewish village, sparking a Nazi invasion. Using clay and mud from the river, the villagers bring to life a giant monster to battle for their freedom and future.

About Dave:

Dave has been creating comics since childhood, but his career as an adult began in 2004 when he and writer Jim Clark teamed up for their critically acclaimed self-published series Scar Tissue. Following that success, they again collaborated on the epic Western web-comic The Guns of Shadow Valley, which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic and a Harvey Award for Best Online Work. His work for larger comic publishers began in 2010 with Robert Bloch’s That Hellbound Train (penned by Joe and John Lansdale), for IDW Publishing. Dave’s work as a guest artist can also been seen in their Godzilla series, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In 2012 he illustrated the horror fable Night of 1,000 Wolves, also for IDW. That same year brought a nomination for the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award in comics.2013 saw a collaboration with Steve Niles on Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem for Dark Horse Comics, and a successful Kickstarter campaign to print the hardcover collected edition of The Guns of Shadow Valley, which has also been picked up for publication by Dark Horse in late Summer 2014. After Cincinnati, then Chicago, Pittsburgh is now the third city in which Dave has come to hang his hat.
