  • OR – Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream Signing

    nemo

    Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday February 5, 2015 to sign Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream! The party runs from 6-10 PM but Craig Thompson will be signing from 8-9pm only.

    Press Release: 

    Winsor McCay was perhaps the greatest cartoonist of all time, and the Sunday newspaper strip Little Nemo in Slumberland is his most enduring creation. Detailing the adventures of its titular character in The Land of Wonderful Dreams, the early twentieth century opus is one of the most inventive and visually stunning works of American art. A century later, the comic medium is still racing to keep up with the richness, draftsmanship, imagination, and wonder of McCay’s fantastic storytelling and wild Slumberland universe.

    In Locust Moon Press’ new anthology LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM, many of the world’s finest cartoonists have paid tribute to the master and his masterpiece by creating new Little Nemo strips, following their own voices down paths lit by McCay. Contributors include Paul Pope, JH Williams III, Bill Sienkiewicz, David Mack, Carla Speed McNeil, Charles Vess, Peter Bagge, Dean Haspiel, Farel Dalrymple, Marc Hempel, Nate Powell, P. Craig Russell, Jeremy Bastian, Jim Rugg, Ron Wimberly, Scott Morse, David Petersen, J.G. Jones, Mike Allred, Dean Motter, Yuko Shimizu, Roger Langridge, and Mark Buckingham, among many others.

    Published in the fall of 2014 as a hardcover book at the full size of the original Little Nemo broadsheet pages (16″ x 21″), this book will celebrate McCay’s endless legacy, chart his influence on generations of modern cartoonists, and most of all shine a light back on an artist who has given his art form so much, and whose work should be more widely known.

    This is a love song for Winsor McCay, Little Nemo, and the limitless possibilities of comics. Join artists Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple on Thursday Feb. 5th for an art exhibit and get copies of this beautiful book signed. We will also have exclusive giclee prints of Craig and Farel’s pages for sale. We’ll have over a dozen original pages from the book on display from artists including: David Mack, Cole Closser, Alexis Ziritt, Dave Bullock, Aaron Conley, Mark Mariano, Daniel Elisi, Benjamin Marra, Tom Scioli, Weshoyot Alvitre, JG Jones, Dave Chisholm, Ron Wimberly and Jeffro Kilpatrick!

    CA – Habibi Signing

    Craig Thompson appears at Meltdown Comics for a Q&A, Slideshow Presentation, and Signing on Friday May 11th, 20012 at 7pm!

    About the book:
    Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, HABIBI tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, circumstance, and love. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world fueled by fear and greed.

    At once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI gives us a love story of astounding resonance; a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and the magic of storytelling.

    About the author:
    Craig Thompson was born in Michigan in 1975, and grew up in a rural farming community in central Wisconsin. His graphic novel Blankets won numerous industry awards and has been published in nearly twenty languages. Thompson lives in Portland, Oregon.

    Press Release:

    Award-winning graphic novelist Craig Thompson comes to the Skirball to discuss his latest and highly praised graphic novel Habibi in a slide-illustrated talk.

    Craig Thompson signs at Bridge City Comics on Friday, October 7 from 6pm – 9pm!

    Press Release:

    Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Night with Craig Thompson and Habibi on Friday, October 7, 2011 from 6pm – 9pm! This event is free to the public. Craig will be in attendance to sign autographs but offering sketches will be at his discretion.

    Craig has graciously created brand new artwork for a print available ONLY during our signing event on Friday, October 7! If you buy a copy of Habibi from Bridge City Comics from its release on September 20 through the signing on October 7th, you’ll be given a special card. Bring the card with you to the signing and we will give you a copy of the print FOR FREE during the event (while supplies last)! Prints will also be available for $10 each if you bought Habibi somewhere else.

    Come help us celebrate the long-awaited release of Craig Thompson’s long-form masterpiece, Habibi! Craig took the world by storm with his 2003 592-page semi-autobiographical graphic novel, Blankets. And now he’s outdone himself with Habibi, a 672-page story of two children bound together by chance, who grow together, then apart, as they struggle to find a place for themselves in the world.

    Bridge City Comics will have copies of Habibi on hand for purchase during the event ($35), as well as a special, limited event-only sale on Craig’s Blankets graphic novel ($15 during the event, regularly $30 while supplies last).

    Bridge City Comics is located at 3725 N. Mississippi Ave in North Portland. Please call 503-282-5484 or e-mail info@bridgecitycomics.com for more information.

    About Habibi: Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth and frailty of their connection. At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
