Gilbert Hernandez at Powell’s Sunday night!

    |    

Sunday night in the great city of Portland, OR, Gilbert Hernandez launches Marble Season. From the Portland Mercury: “Hernandez’s all-ages characters are curious, thoughtfully nuanced, and full of the vivid expressions and body language of his adult worlds, as if the Riverdale of Archie Comics suddenly acquired a previously unknown depth. Or Little Archie & Co. came face to face with the fact that it’s super frustrating to be a kid… Hernandez revels in the simple pleasures of a neighborhood where little girls swallow marbles, war games prevail, and comic books are king.”
