SDCC Debuts: Even More Bad Parenting Advice by Guy Delisle
Happy day three of San Diego Comic-Con International 2014- I hope you haven't run out of steam yet! Today at Drawn and Quarterly (Booth 1629) we've got signings with Mimi Pond, Lisa Hanawalt, Matt Forsythe, and Gilbert Hernandez, and great graphic novels piled high. Among out debuts this year is Guy Delisle's Even More Bad Parenting Advice, the follow-up to his hilarious, heartwarming A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting.
Even More Bad Parenting Advice is, as its title suggests, more of the wonderfully accurate observations on parenthood that Guy Delisle delivered in User's Guide. Delisle is a stay-at-home father and spends a large amount of time immersed in the confusing, laughter-inducing world of his young son and daughter. In his trying to be 'the best dad ever', Guy often acts like a bit of a child himself, but succeeds in earning the title: he's always ready to defend his children against bullies, and is always ready to play. The book is incredibly readable and relatable. It might just be the perfect Mother's Day/Father's Day/Christmas gift, but it's also so spot-on that you won't want to wait that long to share it.
Do you want to win your very own copy of Even More Bad Parenting Advice? We're hosting our very own panel at 10 am today (that's in half an hour-get moving!) in Room 4. In this Jeopardy-style trivia game we'll test you knowledge about D+Q's publications and authors, and every correct answer receives a free book! Pretty sweet deal, no?!
