Los Angeles: Nick Thorburn Penguins Tour Finale at Secret Headquarters

October 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

  • This event has passed.

Nick Thorburn (indie-pop icon and frontman of The Unicorns, Islands, and Mister Heavenly) presents his first published comics collection, Penguins.

Told almost entirely without words, Penguins is one of the most playfully original graphic novels in recent memory.Relying on visual expression and the physical movement of his penguin characters, as well as the formal properties of sequential drawings (with penguins routinely moving within and without each page’s panel borders), Penguins is a series of interconnected short strips that, without words or human characters, does more to showcase the breadth of emotion we as humans experience than most prose novels.

Thorburn will sign copies of Penguins, talk about his cartooning style, and play some tunes! Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be an entertaining and enlightening evening!
