Next Friday in Chicago, Dan Z. and Kevin H. will be launching their new books with a signing at Quimby's. GLORIANA is a poetic exploration of the quotidian in which Kevin Huizenga uses his unique style to reveal the mechanics of everyday life. BIRDSEYE BRISTOE is Dan Zettwoch's debut graphic novel, and it's delightfully replete with his signature hybrid of comics and Popular Mechanics-style diagrams.
That's Friday June 15th at 7 pm. Quimby's Bookstore, 1854 W. North Ave, Chicago.
The Quimby's event is also a pre-party of sorts for....
CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo) on Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th! That's at Columbia College's Ludington Building, 1104 S. Wabash, Chicago. Kevin and Dan can be found at table 61 with the USS Catastrophe from 11 am to 6 pm. They will have copies of GLORIANA and BIRDSEYE with them at the show.
Then it's a home-town affair on Friday June 22nd!
Dan & Kevin will be having a launch party at St Louis's Star Clipper, 6392 Delmar Blvd in St Louis, and it kicks off around 7 pm. There'll be snacks and refreshments, plus cut-outs from each of the books which you can pose with. Good times guaranteed.
Oh hey, and I almost forgot to mention the best part: Dan & Kevin have been hard at work designing an extra gift -- a collaborative screenprint to give away to anyone who purchases one of their books at Quimby's or Star Clipper. Can't wait to see it!
