Live the Dream With Jesse Reklaw

18 septembre 2008 Non Par Comic Box

[ENGLISH] Dark Horse Comics: Cartoonist Jesse Reklaw turns the dreams of strangers into insightful, humorous, and clever four-panel comic strips in The Night of Your Life. This stunning hardcover collects over five years of Reklaw’s comic strip, Slow Wave, which appears in alternative newsweeklies all over the country. Sometimes playful, sometimes thought provoking, but always entertaining, The Night of Your Life is a testament to the ability of comics to illuminate the corridors of the imagination with wit, sincerity, and delight.

We are excited to announce the Night of Your Life East Coast book tour. Jesse will be hitting up six states along the East Coast in nine days doing signings, readings, and lectures.

“This is the largest book tour I’ve been on – fifteen different events in nine states,” admits Reklaw. “In some newsweeklies my comic strip has been running for over ten years. I’ve followed the dream lives of people who’ve grown up, gotten married, had kids, etc. So it’ll be fascinating to meet these people in real life. I’m also really happy with the book; some of these comics I drew years ago, but I still get a chuckle out of them.”
