DOGS! An anthology of Comics on our Canine Companions Release Party!

Friday, October 24th 

Talking @ 7pm
Signing @ 8pm

This collection of comics was conceived after a series of meandering conversations with artists in India and the US revealed a shared admiration for dogs, as well as a collective desire to explore what the world would like from the other end of a snout. In this collection, you will encounter dogs that are post-apocalyptic, self-reflective, murderous, environmentally-conscious – and much more!

Come on out to Vault of Midnight on Friday, October 24th and meet creators Jeremy Stoll, Cristina Mezuk, and Patrick Goussy! The evening will begin with a brief introduction by Stoll, a researcher of India’s comics culture, followed by a chat about their stories by Mezuk, Goussy, and Stoll. Questions & conversation will be welcome, and book signing will follow. 

DOGS! is the result of an international collaboration between Captain Bijli Comics in New Delhi and Great Bear Comics in Michigan, along with many fantastic creators in India and the United States. All proceeds from the US edition go to Last Day Dog Rescue, a volunteer-run no-kill rescue that focuses on rescuing dogs from the “Urgent” list across lower Michigan and parts of Ohio.
