D+Q in Leeds and Montreal this weekend!
Hello Leeds! Don't forget that you have the chance to meet and get books signed by the magnanimous and magnificent Bendik Kaltenborn at Thought Bubble this weekend. Becauuuuuuusee for the very first time, D+Q will have a booth at Leeds's finest comics festival. So reserve your tickets (or buy them "on the door" as they are wont to say in England), and hurry over to New Dock Hall booths 103-105. A huge amount of D+Q books will be on offer (including Bendik's Adult Contemporary, Brian Chippendale's Puke Force, the new Anna & Froga, and more) from 10 am to 5 pm both Saturday November 14th and Sunday November 15th. Bendik will be signing from 11 am to 12 pm and from 2:30 to 3:30 on Saturday and on Sunday you can catch him there from 12 to 1 and 2 to 3 pm.
Plus! D+Q Publisher Peggy Burns and Executive Editor Tom Devlin will be speaking about the past, present, and future of D+Q from 1:10 pm to 2 pm on Saturday in the Royal Armouries's Newsroom. Admission is included with Saturday or weekend passes, so head on down to ask them a hard-hitting question or two.
Meanwhile, in our very own Montreal, right in the middle of North America, the one and only Expozine is also taking place this weekend. You'll be able to find D+Q in the basement of the Eglise Saint-Enfant-Jesus (5035 Saint-Dominique, just behind the park at Saint-Joseph and Saint-Laurent) from 12 pm to 6 pm on Saturday November 14th and Sunday November 15th. Admission is free and open to the public and it is always a fun time, jampacked with comics and zines and beautiful silkscreened art.
As you can see, we will have bookplate editions of Adrian Tomine's Killing and Dying, Kate Beaton's Step Aside, Pops, and, of course, D+Q 25. We'll also have a selection of tantalizing new and debut titles including Brian Chippendale's Puke Force (ahead of its February in-store date!), Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler (by Shigeru Mizuki), Anouk Ricard's Anna & Froga: Fore!, and Guy Delisle's The Owner's Manual to Terrible Parenting. Come on by!
