Los Angeles: Olivier Schrauwen signs Parallel Lives at Secret Headquarters

November 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

From one of the world’s most celebrated cartoonists comes this unique collection of six wildly inventive short stories, each a surrealist tour de force that might collectively be dubbed “speculative memoir.” Schrauwen’s deadpan depictions of his and his progeny’s futures are presented with such brio and conviction that even the most jaded reader will ask himself: was the author really abducted by extraterrestrials? Is he actually able to dialogue with agents from the future? Does he truly receive coded messages in envelopes at breakfast?
 
Parallel Lives resonates as something more than simply the overheated imagination of an artist creating freely — it glows and hums and pulsates like a portal to another reality, and is the latest masterpiece in one of comics’ most distinctive bodies of work.
 
Schrauwen will be at Secret Headquarters on Friday, November 9th to discuss and sign copies of Parallel Lives.
