  • NYC – Black is the Color Signing

    bicGraphic novelist Julia Gfrörer signs at The Strand on January 15th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!

    Join us for an exclusive evening with Julia Gfrörer, author and artist of the soul-darkening, seafaring, ridiculously awesome new graphic novel Black is the Color, out with Fantagraphics! Called “moving” by The Comics Journal, Black is the Color is the sorrowful tale of an unfortunate sailor’s abandonment, and his melancholy meeting of a mermaid named Eulalia.

    Filled with cutting humor and poignant, artful images, Black is the Color is sure to become a 2014 favorite. Currently based in Portland, Julia’s work has appeared in Thickness, Arthur Magazine, Study Group Magazine, and Best American Comics.

    As Julia’s biography on her personal site thorazos.net espouses, “her last name rhymes with despair, and her heart is black as jet.” Come escape a bleak winter chill in our cozy rare book rooms for a night of comic shop talk!

    Buy a copy of Black is the Color or a $15 Strand gift card in order to attend this event. All options admit one person. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand’s 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
