Chabon gives us a fantastic romp. This book is fun. Two cousins meet on the eve of an explosion of comic book frenzy in the US and on the eve of WWII. They grab on for the ride and create much of the excitement themselves as a writing/drawing team.
Join us as we celebrate the premiere of Los Angeles' new quarterly literary magazine, Slake! Founded by former LA Weekly editors Joe
Donnelly and Laurie Ochoa, Slake proves that print isn't dead by offering a beautiful, collectible volume of art, writing, and photography. Some of LA's finest authors and artists are included in the first issue, and five of them will be here to help us launch it: Jervey Tervalon, Michelle Huneven, Jerry Stahl, Jonathan Gold, and Erica Zora Wrightson will all be speaking about their contributions.
