  • CO – Saint Cole Signing

    saint-colePress Release:

    Local cartoonist and hero, Noah Van Sciver, will be signing copies of his latest graphic novel, Saint Cole, in Denver! Join Noah and the booksellers from the hottest independent book and comics store in town, Kilgore Books, on Wednesday, February 18th from 6-8pm. Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe who feels trapped working overtime at a pizza restaurant to support his girlfriend, Nicole, their infant child, and Nicole’s troubled-and-rough-around-the-edges mother, Angela. The second book from Fantagraphics and Van Sciver continues his interest in pathos and the human condition.

    Press Release:

    The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln, a documentation of Abraham Lincoln’s crushing cloud of depression by Noah Van Sciver! Reading Noah’s sensitive look at Lincoln’s irrepressible ambition despite his troubled times is even better than one of those sun lamps. The debut graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver follows the twentysomething Abraham Lincoln as he loses everything, long before becoming our most beloved president. Lincoln is a rising Whig in the state’s legislature as he arrives in Springfield, IL to practice law. With all of his possessions under his arms in two saddlebags, he is quickly given a place to stay by a womanizing young bachelor who becomes his friend and close confidant. Lincoln builds a life and begins friendships with the town’s top lawyers and politicians. He attends elegant dances and meets an independent-minded young woman from a high-society Kentucky family, and after a brisk courtship, becomes engaged. But, as time passes and uncertainty creeps in, young Lincoln is forced to battle a dark cloud of depression brought on by a chain of defeats and failures culminating into a nervous breakdown that threatens his life and sanity. This cloud of dark depression Lincoln calls “The Hypo.”

    Dense crosshatching and an attention to detail help bring together this completely original telling of a man driven by an irrepressible desire to pull himself up by his bootstraps, overcome all obstacles, and become the person he strives to be. All the while unknowingly laying the foundation of character he would use as one of America’s greatest presidents.

    Noah Van Sciver was born in 1984 and raised in a large Mormon family in New Jersey. He first came to comic readers’ attention with his comic book series Blammo, which earned him an Ignatz nomination in 2010. He currently lives in Denver, CO with his cat Getrude among stacks of books.
