ALGERNON BLACKWOOD’S THE WILLOWS release party with Nathan Carson and Sam Ford

Algernon Blackwood’s The Willows is collected with a new 12-page prequel story never published elsewhere. Join the creators on Friday, December 13th for a release party and book signing. This immortal novella of extra-dimensional weirdness on the Danube comes to vivid life in graphic comic form thanks to the incredibly detailed black-and-white linework of talented newcomer, Sam Ford. Writer Nathan Carson’s thoughtful retelling reverently preserves the plot while breathing character-driven depth into this all-time classic.

THE SLEEP GAS release party and art exhibit with Chris Cilla

Chris Cajero Cilla is the author of the 2010 cult classic graphic novel, The Heavy Hand, and this new book from FU Press is a collection of the artist’s short stories created over the past decade-plus. Cilla’s absurdist humor takes center stage in this bouillabaisse of pieces that recalls the work of contemporary masters such as Matthew Thurber and Michael Deforge, as well as the unfettered id that permeates the great underground comix of the 1960s and 1970s. Cilla co-mingles a variety of styles and genres in the service of surrealist gems such as “Burp’s Law,” “Exqueezmeat,” and “Labyrinthectomy,” all of which will buoy you with a blissfully dull buzz, long after you’ve put it down. WHO: Chris Cilla WHAT: The Sleep Gas release party and…
