Acclaimed cartoonists Marc Bell (Stroppy, Pure Pajamas) and Anders Nilsen (Poetry is Useless, Big Questions) are hitting the road to celebrate their new books!
Marc Bell will be discussing his first full-length graphic novella, Stroppy, which paints a strange and wordplay-loving world in which the titular hero hopes to win big in a songwriting contest organized by the All-Star Schnauzer Band. Mishap and hilarity ensue as Bell explodes the divide between fine art, doodling, and comics. Anders Nilsen will talk about Poetry is Useless, an expansive, beautifully-packaged collection of his sketchbooks. Poetry is Useless is part travelogue, part commentary on politics and culture, and part conversational ping-pong match. Join them for readings and signings at these fine bookstores across North America.
