Michael DeForge's Ant Colony, our first fantastic book of 2014, is officially in stores (in Canada- but you'll have it tomorrow, America) and that's reason to brave the cold and celebrate. Michael will be reading and presenting a slideshow tonight, Monday, January 27th, at 7pm, at The Beguiling (601 Markham Street).
NOW Magazine highlights the event, saying "Michael DeForge’s deranged yet adorable debut graphic novel hits the mark on many levels. It’s experimental without ever derailing its narrative, existential yet light-hearted, surreal but deeply human, and always visually engaging."
And over at Las Vegas Weekly, J. Caleb Mozzocco writes: "Remarkably violent and darkly hilarious, it’s a comic about the human condition that features no human characters at all."
Toronto humans, come out and support your own! (You'll wanna get your hands on some of those Ant Colony trading cards Michael promised to bring.)
