Julia Gfrörer Signs Her Ever-Darkening Black Is the Color

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery welcomes Julia Gfrörer to sign her new graphic novella Black Is the Color on Saturday February 1st. Just in time for Valentine's Day, come down to Georgetown and pick up a deathly love story at sea for that special someone.

Black Is the Color begins with a 17th century sailor abandoned at sea by his shipmates, and as it progresses he endures, and eventually succumbs to, both his lingering death sentence and the advances of a cruel and amorous mermaid. The narrative also explores the experiences of the loved ones he leaves behind, on his ship and at home on land, as well as of the mermaids who jadedly witness his destruction. At the heart of the story lie the dubious value of maintaining dignity to the detriment of intimacy, and the erotic potential of the worst case scenario. Julia Gfrörer's delicate drawing style perfectly complements the period era of Black Is the Color, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of Gfrörer's prose to the fore. Black Is the Color is a book as seductive as the sirens it depicts.

Julia Gfrörer was born in 1982 in Concord, New Hampshire. Her work has appeared in THICKNESS, ARTHUR MAGAZINE, STUDY GROUP MAGAZINE, BLACK EYE, and BEST AMERICAN COMICS. Her last name rhymes with despair, and her heart is black as jet.
