British cartoonist Luke Pearson appears at the Strand Book Store on Tuesday May 6th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!
Luke Pearson has gained wide acclaim for his striking illustrations and complex, multivalent comics. His Hildafolk series contains Luke’s signature blend of exuberant visuals and dark, whimsical stories. To celebrate the release of the latest Hildafolk book, Luke will chat about his work and sign copies of Hilda and The Black Hound for fans in our rare book room. This fourth book in the series chronicles the adventurous Hilda and her companion Twig (a blue fox with antlers) in their encounters with the Nisse, creatures who live in a mirror world “where the rules of physics don’t quite match up.”
Luke’s work has been praised as “glorious, exciting if also rather menacing” by the New York Times. Of the series, Slate has said “It’s hard to imagine a better all-ages comic.” Join us for an evening with an exciting talent in comics!
Buy a copy of Hilda and the Black Hound 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.

Out this March from Flying Eye Books (NoBrow’s children’s line), is the long-awaited fourth part of Eisner-nominated Luke Pearson’s lovely Hilda stories. This time round, Hilda and her otherworldly friends find themselves dealing with alternate realities and a looming, mysterious dark spectre skulking through the streets of Trolberg. More info on the book can be found here…
There will be an all-ages signing for munchkin fans of the series in the afternoon, and a launch party for the mature fans to clink glasses and raise the roof (not literally, please, we like our roof), in the evening. Luke will also be doing a window painting for us throughout the day, because he’s lovely like that.
The event is on Saturday, the 15th of March, with the all-ages signing running from 2pm to 3pm and the launch party running, as per usual, from 7pm to 9pm. From the 10th through to the 16th of March, customers will be able to get 25% off all NoBrow and Flying Eye books!
