D+Q Acquires World Digital Rights to Lynda Barry’s ONE! HUNDRED! DEMONS! Now on Kobo!

Continuing its foray into the digital market, D+Q has recently acquired world electronic rights to Lynda Barry’s classic graphic novel One! Hundred! Demons! The book is now for sale from Kobo and can be read on the Kobo Arc as well as the Kobo Aura and family of apps across the iOS, Android, and Windows 8 platforms.

The beloved, genre-defying work of “autobifictionalography” One! Hundred! Demons! exploded the comic book medium in its original release, ending up on “Best Of” lists from Time Magazine and the Chicago Tribune. In these seventeen vignettes that touch on the scent of people's homes, why babies are the best dancers, and how pretentious ex-boyfriends are like head lice, Barry brings her demons out to be exorcised. Described as “brutally honest, thoughtful, and soulful” by Nick Hornby in the New York Times, One! Hundred! Demons! takes on Barry's childhood with humor and poignancy.

"One! Hundred! Demons! is, hands down, one of my favorite  books in any medium, and it is nothing short of an honor to be able to publish it digitally,” said Peggy Burns, Associate Publisher of Drawn & Quarterly. “Since we first released Chester Brown’s Paying For It and Louis Riel on Kobo, they have proven to be a supportive partner willing to work with us to ensure that the digital version is just as dynamic as the original. We have a full slate of graphic novels planned for 2014 with Kobo. Stay tuned!”
