Praise for DANIEL CLOWES:
“It’s like Holden Caulfield with his phaser set on kill. Phonies beware.”
“THE DEATH-RAY reads as a cautionary parable and an acidic rumination on the travails of adolescence… Clowes demonstrates what the comic book can do and literary fiction can’t.”
“A bona-fide cult hero.”
–The New Yorker
About THE DEATH-RAY:
The award-winning classic comics of a masked vigilante stalks city streets and school hallways, wielding nicotine-fueled superpowers in defense of the righteous.
Praise for SETH:
“He can invest more character and poignancy in a drawing of a gas station than most artists can in a human portrait.”
Another entry from Seth’s sketchbook, a loving and sometimes fictionalized portrait of Canadian cartooning history, celebrating the cartoonists who the comics collectors love.
This event is co-sponsored by Pop Montreal, tickets also available at Librairie D+Q, 211 Bernard Ouest
