Join us on Monday, May 1st at 5:30 pm for an In Conversation event with Benjamin Schipper about his graphic novel Joe Death and the Graven Image.
Somewhere between Mike Mignola, A Fistful of Dollars, and Johnny Cash’s Ghost Riders in the Sky, this tale is an adventurous take on the existential hitman, set against a dreamy western backdrop populated by witches, spirits, ghouls, and other monsters. Joe Death explores what it means for Death to undo what he does best. More importantly, what is the true cost of salvation? We’re very excited to have Benjamin in store with us and can’t wait to hear all about his life and writing processes, what inspires him, and ask questions about his book.
So don’t miss out on this free event!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Benjamin Schipper is a writer and artist living in the United States with his wife Karen and their little black dog Willow. He writes primarily from his own experiences and filters them through genres such as fantasy and science fiction. He likes to think he sees people before money, ideas before artwork, and relationships before networks.
The majority of his work is traditionally drawn in pencil on marker paper, scanned into Photoshop, and colored there. He does, however, work upon design principles, making his artwork fit the message of each project.
