Press Release:

Daniel Clowes and Seth in conversation at Housing Works with Desert Island

Tuesday October 18th at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, 126 Crosby St.

Acclaimed graphic novelists Daniel Clowes and Seth in conversation about The Death-Ray and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists. This is their only New York City event! Presented by  Desert Island, Drawn & Quarterly, and Housing Works.

The Death-Ray is a brilliant reworking of the superhero genre and a contemporary meditation on the darkness of the human psyche from a master of the graphic novel form, Daniel Clowes (Ghost World, Wilson, Mister Wonderful). In  The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists, Seth (Wimbledon Green; It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken) intermingles fiction and biography, introducing us to the cartoonists comics collectors love.
