[EN] Virtual Graphic Novel Launch: HELEM by Stanley Wany

16 septembre 2021 18:00 - 19:00

Join us on Thursday, September 16th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. ET to celebrate the launch of Stanley Wany's new graphic novel, HELEM.

The event will feature a presentation by Stanley Wany, who will be joined in conversation by Australian artist, writer and cartoonist Jonathan McBurnie.

Listed as one of CBC Books' 21 Canadian Comics to Watch for in Fall 2021, HELEM is a surrealist journey through alienation, lost dreams, and self-redemption. The nearly wordless stories contained in HELEM delve deep into the internal lives of their characters. HELEM, created while Wany was in a hallucinatory state brought on by a severe lack of sleep, also provides an intimate look into his own personal dreamscape.

This event will be live-streamed on Zoom. Watch this space—a link will be shared a few hours before the event.
