OK Montrealers, our day has come! Tonight, Gilbert lands on our fair shores!

OK Montrealers, our day has come! Tonight, Gilbert lands on our fair shores!

 

From Saturday’s Montreal Gazette interview
“Love and Rockets was revolutionary, and still stands alone. Los Bros Hernandez, as they sometimes billed themselves, combined classic draftsmanship with artful, edgy and allusive storytelling instincts…”

On the slideshow, Gilbert has this to say:
“For 30 years, I’ve been answering questions about who influenced me, but I’ve often had the feeling people had no idea who I was talking about or how the influence worked,” he says.

“So here’s a chance to pull up a few panels of, say, Little Archie and point out how direct the influence was, or do a panel-by-panel analysis of a nine-page Dennis the Menace story and show everyone exactly how good it is.”

And over at Cult Montreal, they have perhaps the best summary of Gilbert’s legacy ever:
“Gilbert Hernandez is to comics what the Ramones are to rock. He didn’t invent the form, but he threw down a radical new way to think about it.”

Okay, down to business on the details front: Wednesday April 17! 7 pm! Librairie D+Q! 211 Bernard O! Presentation + Q&A + signing + refreshments with one of the nicest comics legends you’ll meet this year!
