Chadwick and I will be at Supanova Melbourne with DEAD ENDS this weekend, along with a new little something that’s also made of paper and covered in ink…
Comics are not about drawing and writing, they’re about graphic design and poetry.
– Art Spiegelman
Yes, not only will Chadwick and I be selling and signing copies of our anthology graphic novel DEAD ENDS, we will also be debuting a brand new book, a minicomic, titled The Everyman’s Theory of Everything. Sharply written and gorgeously illustrated by Chadwick, The Everyman’s Theory of Everything is an absurd reflection on the meaning of life and the limitations of materialism. Think Eugene Ionesco meets Art Spiegelman in abbreviated form. In fact, Spiegelman has spoken of comics as an “art of compression” and Chadwick’s new minicomic The Everyman’s Theory of Everything is a fine example of that approach. It is nine illustrations of graphic design and 58 words of poetry, in a most beautiful and tragic sequence. It also has scientist fish, New Wave gags and it’s $4.
So come down to Supanova Melbourne for a copy of our new minicomic The Everyman’s Theory of Everything and, if you haven’t already, pick up DEAD ENDS while you’re there.
Supanova will be at the Melbourne Showgrounds, Epsom Road, Ascot Vale, Victoria from Saturday April 11th to Sunday April 12th. See their site for more details.
