Tonight! Conundrum and Koyama present: Elisabeth Belliveau and Walter Scott Launch One Year in America and Wendy

Join us tonight for this exciting double launch from two of the best Canadian comics presses - Conundrum and Koyama!

Elisabeth Belliveau will launch her first graphic novel, One Year In America. Walter Scott will launch Wendy, which collects his ragingly popular Wendy comic strips!

About One Year In America:
The first graphic novel from popular zinester...
Belliveau’s first graphic novel begins with a loss of innocence over ice skater Katarina Witt’s fall from grace by posing in Playboy. It is told through both drawings and email text between friends. The story jumps between Canada and the United States and travels abroad navigating life after art school, marriage and divorce. It is a year in a life, but one that is pregnant with memory, meaning and desire. It is a post-modern coming of age story which quite literally crosses boundaries.

Elisabeth Belliveau is an interdisciplinary artist originally from Nova Scotia. Her work has been screened and exhibited internationally. She completed a BFA at Alberta College of Art and Design and an MFA at Concordia University in Montréal where she currently teaches.

About Wendy:
Wendy is trendy, and has dreams of art stardom — but our young urban protagonist is perpetually derailed by the temptations of punk music, drugs, alcohol, parties, and boys. Hegemonies and hearts are broken in this droll and iconoclastic look at the worlds of art and twentysomethings.

“If you are or were ever a 20-something art school party girl, this comic will stare directly into your soul. If you aren’t and never have been, that’s okay too because Wendy’s art show-littered search for happiness, questionable life choices and totally human tendency for
failure are just a great read anyway.” — Olivia Whittick, VICE Magazine

Walter Scott is an artist from MontrĂ©al. His work has been exhibited across Canada and Wendy has been serialized on Random House Canada’s literary digital magazine Hazlitt.
