Chris Ware & Charles Burns: Building Comix at Town Hall 10/22

Monday, October 22, 2012, 7:30 – 9:00pm
Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $5; admission may be used toward the purchase of any book by Ware or Burns.

In the world of graphic novels—heck; in the world of publishing—superstars just don’t shine much more brightly than these two sterling comix stars: Chris Ware and Charles Burns. And—lucky us—each has a book coming out this fall. Ware, whose work recalls the greatest 20th-century cartoonists with a style and worldview utterly, unmistakably, his own, has packed his new graphic novel, Building Stories, with advanced wood-pulp technology, ambition, emotions—and exquisite artistry. And Burns, who grew up in Seattle and crafted the semi-autobiographical magnum opus Black Hole, brings The Hive, the second part of his epic masterpiece trilogy of graphic horror. Presented as part of the Town Hall Arts & Culture series with Fantagraphics.

Tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Admission may be used toward the purchase of any book by Ware or Burns. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
