Adrian poster for D+Q TV On the Radio Concert!



Hard to believe or easy to believe? Yes, D+Q is 20 years old this year. To celebrate, D+Q is teaming up with other two other indy Montreal organizations, Blue Skies Turn Black and Suoni Per Il Popolo, to present a not-to-be-missed concert here in Montreal, TV on the Radio and the Dirty Projectors! Mark your calendars, it's June 3rd at the Metropolis. How does this get any better? Well, Adrian Tomine kindly provided the beautiful poster, which will be on sale and plastered around the city of Montreal soon.

Manifesto of a Comic-Book Rebel


The NY Times agrees with the Onion:

It's a book that manages to be, all at once, an insider's history of manga, a mordant cultural tour of post-Hiroshima Japan and a scrappy portrait of a struggling artist. It's a big, fat, greasy tub of salty popcorn for anyone interested (as Americans increasingly are) in the theory and practice of Japanese comics. It's among this genre's signal achievements.

Check out Dwight Garner's thorough and thoughtful review of A Drifting Life in today's New York Times.
