Nursery Rhyme Comics! Launch Party 10/21/11

I have a piece in the upcoming Nursery Rhyme Comics, which will be released on October 11!

First Second Books published this beautiful collection, edited by Chris Duffy, and featuring 50 classic rhymes by 50 talented cartoonists. I was asked to interpret the poem Georgie Porgie, and the results were...well, the word "messy" comes to mind. Here's a teaser:

There will be a book launch party!

What: Launch Party & Exhibition for Nursery Rhyme Comics

Where: POWERHOUSE ARENA 37 Main Street / Brooklyn, NY (in Dumbo)

A selection of cartoonists, including Leonard Marcus, Sara Varon, Scott Campbell, Dave Roman, Raina Telgemeier, Nick Abadzis, Nick Bruel, George O’Connor, and Mark Siegel will have their work on display for the launch of this collection of classic nursery rhymes reinterpreted by some of the greatest comic artists of our time.

Books and original art will be for sale! The event is open to the public, and free to attend. It will be fun, so I hope you can make it!

(I'll also be signing NRC at the New York Comic Con, on Sunday, October 16.)
