QC – Boundless Release Party

Join award-winning cartoonist Jillian Tamaki (SuperMutant Magic Academy, This One Summer) on Friday, May 26th at 7:00 PM for the launch of her new book: the inventive and incisive Boundless.

At once fantastical and realist, Boundless explores the intersection (and overlap) between the virtual and IRL worlds. From Jenny, who becomes obsessed with a strange “mirror Facebook,” which presents an alternate, possibly better, version of herself; to Helen, who finds her clothes growing baggy and her shoes looser as she shrinks away to nothingness, these evocative, strange, and magical stories showcase Tamaki’s skill as an artist and storyteller.

JILLIAN TAMAKI is an illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto. She is the co-creator along with her cousin Mariko Tamaki of the graphic novel Skim, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. Their second graphic novel This One Summer earned a Governor General’s Award and a Caldecott Honor. Tamaki’s first collection of her own comics was the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-winning SuperMutant Magic Academy.

QC – Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story Launch Party

Cartoonist Peter Bagge appears at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Monday, March 20th at 7:00 PM

The author of the New York Times-bestselling graphic novel “Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story” returns with another extraordinary account of a woman way ahead of her time. In his newest biography “Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story”, cartoonist Peter Bagge delves into the world of Zora Neale Hurston: the critically-acclaimed novelist and folklorist who challenged the norms of what was expected of an African American woman in early 20th century society. With a skilled cartooning hand, Bagge turns what could be a rote biography into a bold and dazzling graphic novel, creating a story as vibrant as the life itself.

PETER BAGGE is the Harvey Award-winning author of the acclaimed 1990s alternative comic series Hate starring slacker hero Buddy Bradley, and a regular contributor to Reason magazine. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he got his start in comics in the R. Crumb-edited magazine Weirdo. “Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story” is Bagge’s second book with Drawn & Quarterly after 2013’s “Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story”, which was reviewed twice in the New York Times, and appeared on the YALSA Great Graphic Novel For Teens list and the Amelia Bloomer Project list of the Best Feminist Books for Young Readers. Bagge lives in Seattle with his wife Joanne, daughter, and three cats.

QC – The Abominable Mr. Seabrook Signing

000-ldq-ollmann

Cartoonist Joe Ollmann appears at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly on Friday January 27th at 7:00 PM as he discusses his latest graphic tour de force: The Abominable Mr. Seabrook.

In Seabrook, Ollmann chronicles the trials and tribulations of notorious journalist William Buehler Seabrook: famed member of the Lost Generation known for participating in voodoo ceremonies, riding camels cross the Sahara desert, communing with cannibals, and popularizing the term “zombie” in the West. Exposing both the highs and extreme lows of a turbulent life, Ollmann often weaves in Seabrook’s own words and those of his biographers. This biographical account, however, posits Seabrook the believer versus Seabrook the exploiter, leaving the reader to consider where one ends and the other begins.
