SCOTT McCLOUD with ROBIN SLOAN at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Eisner and Harvey-award winner, the author of the essential guide Understanding Comics, and the creator of the comic book series Zot!, Scott McCloud discusses his latest masterpiece The Sculptor. With a Starred Review from Booklist and rave reviews from the likes of Neil Gaiman, fans won't be disappointed with this unforgettable new work of stunning fiction.  

Scott will be in conversation with Robin Sloan, bestselling author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore.

Readers are in for a delightful treat according to Boing Boing's review of The Sculptor:

“With The Sculptor, McCloud reminds us that he is one of the field's great storytellers, with a story of love, art, madness and death that wrenches, delights and confounds.”

“This is a book that is a look at the paradoxical drives that make us want to create and how it relates to love. David's desire to make art is uncompromising, selfish, wonderful, and totally destructive. The art he makes is both a gift to those he loves and a thing he takes from them, because even when he meets his heart's true love, his need for artistic posterity rivals his ardor for the love of his life.

“This is a wonderful book, an instant classic, full of complicated and hard ideas made deceptively simple and dangerously elegant by dint of a full mastery of the comics medium. It was years in the making, and well worth the wait.”
