NYC – Marble Season Signing

Gilbert Hernandez signs at the Housing Works Bookstore on Tuesday, April 16th AT 7:00PM.

Press Release:

Join beloved cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets) as he launches his new D+Q graphic novel Marble Season, his first semiautobiographical story of his childhood. Hernandez will present a fascinating slide show “From Funnybooks to Graphic Novels” featuring the comics of his childhood, in addition to a Q+A and signing. These silver age comics not only influenced Marble Season, but also set the course for Gilbert, as well as his brothers Jaime and Mario, to become the legendary comics creators they are today.

Marble Season is the first ever semi-autobiographical novel by acclaimed cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez of Love & Rockets, and is also his first graphic novel for Drawn & Quarterly. Meet Huey. He’s the middle child of a big family, growing up in a California suburb in the 1960s. He stages Captain America plays in the backyard and treasures his older brother’s comic-book collection almost as much as his approval. Set against the golden age of the American dream and the silver age of comics, Marble Season is a subtle and deft rumination on the redemptive and timeless power of storytelling and worldbuilding in childhood.
