One amazing week of events in sixteen photos

Last week was crazy with events here at the store. For those of you who made it out, relive the moment, for those of you who did not, check out what you missed, here are some photo highlights from the week...

On Thursday we hosted a launch for the stunning tome that is Big Questions by the brilliant D&Q artist and most handsome man working in comics, Anders Nilsen...

What would a Big Questions event be without doughnuts?
Here is staffer Julien holding his contribution; "I thought it was BYODoughnuts!"
Anders at his laptop. Really, this is the best picture we got of him during the night.

Friday we had Craig Thompson launching his highly anticipated graphic novel Habibi...

Yes, that's yours truly with Thompson.
Tom gave a glowing introduction.
Craig talked about the making of Habibi...
...including his artistic process.
And he signed books for a line-up fans with the help of his new biggest littlest fan.

SaturdayA-R-T Spiegelman, one of the most important figures in comics history, gave a lecture at Concordia, partly in honour of the upcoming release of MetaMaus: A Look Inside a Modern Classic. We were there selling books, including advanced copies of MetaMaus. A more detailed review of that event will follow.

And, finally, on Monday, blogger and academic wunderkind Peter Knegt took over 211 Bernard Ouest to celebrate his new book, About Canada: Queer Rights. Here's what happens when someone who is good with an SLR takes the photos. Doesn't our store look great? Photo credit: Dallas Curow...
