Each month we host a Graphic Novel Book Club meeting, open to all, during which we hang out and informally discuss a featured graphic novel. Our pick for June is Michael Deforge’s Ant Colony.
We will meet at the Drawn & Quarterly bookstore on Wednesday, June 24th at 7 PM. Discussion will be hosted by D+Q store staffer Kate. We offer you a 20% discount on Ant Colony from now until the meeting date.
Michael Deforge is a rising star of the comics world and an extremely prolific author (First Year Healthy, the Lose series.) Ant Colony is his first full length graphic novel. Prepare to be immersed in a darkly existential universe as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. With humour and sensitivity it pumbs the depths of human loneliness, apathy, faith and love.
