Fantagraphics won't have a table at WonderCon 2011 this weekend, but attendees can get a behind-the-scenes look at a wonderful upcoming title of ours: Oil and Water, written by Steve Duin, a columnist for The Oregonian, and illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler.
Saturday, April 2nd, from 4:00-5:00 pm, in Room 220
WonderCon 2011 runs this weekend from Friday, April 1st to Sunday, April 3rd at the Moscone Center South in San Francisco, CA.
The Cartoon Bank Blog's new interview with cartoonist Shannon Wheeler gives you your first glimpse at his artwork for Oil & Water, which we are publishing this Fall. Wheeler explains the book: "Mike Rosen, a manager at the Bureau of Environmental Services, Watershed Division, organized a group of writers, scientists, activists, environmentalists, teachers, and students to go to the Gulf Coast to get a better understanding of the oil spill and its implications. It is possibly the greatest manmade disaster in our history. Steve Duin, metro columnist for The Oregonian, is fictionalizing our side of the story to build a strong narrative, keeping the local characters and situations real. Our main goal is to help keep the situation on the national radar."
