TX – The Silence of Our Friends Signing

Comments Off on TX – The Silence of Our Friends Signing

Mark Long, Jim Demonakos (Kirby Krackle), and Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole) sign at Guzu Gallery on Sunday, February 19, 2012 from 1:00pm until 4:00pm.

All three of the creators will be here signing the new First Second graphic novel based on a little-known event from the civil rights movement in Houston, 1968.

We’re thrilled to have the guys in for a day of discussion, signing, and… why not?… free beer.  Don’t miss the first ever Guzu Gallery event!

About The Silence of Our Friends:
As the civil rights struggle heats up in Texas, two families-one white, one black-find common ground.

This semi-autobiographical tale is set in 1967 Texas, against the backdrop of the fight for civil rights. A white family from a notoriously racist neighborhood in the suburbs and a black family from its poorest ward cross Houston’s color line, overcoming humiliation, degradation, and violence to win the freedom of five black college students unjustly charged with the murder of a policeman.

The Silence of Our Friends follows events through the point of view of young Mark Long, whose father is a reporter covering the story. Semi-fictionalized, this story has its roots solidly in very real events. With art from the brilliant Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole) bringing the tale to heart-wrenching life, The Silence of Our Friends is a new and important entry in the body of civil rights literature.
