Double Book Launch with Anders Nilsen and Marc Bell

Acclaimed cartoonists Marc Bell (Stroppy) and Anders Nilsen (Poetry is Useless) will be at Magers & Quinn Wednesday July 8th, reading from and signing their new Drawn & Quarterly 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.

Marc Bell was born in London, Ontario, and has befuddled and bemused his readers for almost twenty years. He is the author of Hot Potatoe, Pure Pajamas, and Shrimpy and Paul and Friends. His comics have appeared in many Canadian weeklies, Vice, and LA Weekly. He is a twin.

Anders Nilsen is an award-winning cartoonist and visual artist. He is the author of several books, including Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow and the magnum opus Big Questions, for which he was awarded the 2012 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book and was nominated for the top prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. Nilsen has exhibited his drawing and painting internationally. He lives and works in Minneapolis.

Marc Bell and Anders Nilsen are hitting the road next month in support of their brand new D+Q books!
