Pow Pow Triple Book Launch!


Pow Pow Press will be launching Art Wars, Earthbound and Going Under at the Librairie on October 20th at 7:00 PM! Join us for an evening of fine comics, reasonable wine drinking, public readings and book signing.

Authors Francis Desharnais, Blonk and Zviane will proudly present the new brand new English translations of their respective books. Thick yet charming accents are to be expected. The event starts at 7pm and seating is limited – so come early if you don't want to be stuck in the children's section!
