Gregory Benton Launches B+F

Join us for the Montreal launch of New York-based cartoonist Gregory Benton's B+F! Benton will give a short talk on his inspiration for the award-winning book and his creative process, followed by a signing.

B+F, a MoCCA Award of Excellence-winning fable, explores an otherworldly forest with a woman and a dog as they encounter its denizens, both benevolent and malicious. A wordless meditation on goodwill, hostility, and isolation.

Gregory Benton has been making comix since 1993.

He cut his teeth on the political anthology World War 3, moving on to writing and drawing stories for Nickelodoeon, Vertigo, DC Comics, Disney Adventures, Watson-Guptil, Entertainment Weekly, as well as contributing to numerous alternate-press comix anthologies. A graphic novel, Hummingbird, was published by Slave Labor Graphics in 1996. Gregory has also produced numerous limited-edition mini-comix. Hopefully you have some.

His illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Village Voice and Fortune, among others.

In April of 2013, his book B+F was awarded the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art’s inaugural Award of Excellence at MoCCAFest 2013. An expanded version of B+F was published in the autumn of 2013 through Adhouse Books (USA) and Editions ├ža et la (France).

Stop by for the launch and Gregory Benton will draw a big beautiful picture in your book!

Friday, March 7th at 7 pm! 211 Bernard Ouest!
