Seattle cartoonist Greg Stump will present an exhibition of original drawings and sign copies of his new graphic novel Disillusioned Allusions from Fantagraphics Underground. The book involves a clever conversation among optical illusions. Brooklyn based artist Koren Shadmi will present his new book Mike’s Place from Macmillan’s adventurous First Second imprint. This compelling narrative chronicles the bombing of a cosmopolitan Tel Aviv nightclub and its aftermath.
