Join us for an evening with cartoonist (and frequent New Yorker cover artist) R. Kikuo Johnson as he discusses his newest book, No One Else! The book is the story of a fractured family, workaholic nurse Charlene, and slacker musician Robbie processing the death of their father, while Charlene’s young son Brandon obsesses over finding his lost cat. The book is set in the author’s hometown on the Hawaiian island of Maui, and the gorgeously rendered landscape is a character in and of itself. Publisher’s Weekly gave it a starred review, noting, “Johnson tells an achingly realistic story of a Hawaiian family reeling in grief. … a beautiful example of a short comic containing multitudes.”
He’ll be joined in conversation by comic book artist and blogger Paolo Rivera at Green Apple Books on 9th Avenue for a presentation and discussion!
