D+Q has acquired rights to publish Luke Healy’s The Con Artists in the USA and Canada, coming Spring 2022. This playful, hilarious D+Q Work In Progress charts the uneasy friendship between two young men on the cusp of adulting. Giorgio has always seemed like “Frank, but better,” but when Giorgio is hit by a bus and moves in with Frank, the relationship is changed forever. Acquiring editor Tracy Hurren.
