0000_myp-mice16

Artists Nate Powell (March, Year of the Beasts, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole) and Kerascoët (Beautiful Darkness, Miss Don’t Touch Me, Beauty) appear at the Million Year Picnic on Friday October 28th from 5:30 – 7:00 PM! They will also appear that weekend at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE).

Nate Powell is a New York Times best-selling graphic novelist who began self-publishing at age 14. Nate illustrates the March trilogy – the acclaimed graphic novel autobiography of civil rights icon John Lewis – in his distinctive loose yet sophisticated style. He also creates comics of his own, such as You Don’t Say, Any Empire, and Swallow Me Whole, which further showcase his skills as a thoughtful storyteller.

Kerascoët is the shared pen name of illustrators Marie Pommepuy and Sébastien Cosset. The duo are best known in the US for their Eisner-nominated graphic novel Beautiful Darkness, where their fanciful cartooning frames a grim tale of mortality. The married couple met while attending the Olivier de Serres art school and now work together in comics and animation.
