Litquake welcomes the creative minds of Daniel Clowes and Dave Eggers, who between them have earned the titles of publisher, editor, journalist, cartoonist, philanthropist, educator, illustrator, author, screenwriter, and graphic novelist, as well as former resident of Chicago, The Windy City. Tonight the two discuss the vagaries of the creative process, their favorite comics, books, and movies, anything else that might come up, and which Chicago hot dog is better: Vienna Beef or Red Hot Chicago.

There will be a signing with both authors following the event where their recent books will be for sale as well as this new Eightball print offered exclusively at signings like this or direct from the webshop.

SPX exclusives...

Daniel Clowes and I will  be in the DC area Friday-Saturday, look here for details.

Before I jump on a plane I wanted to post that we'll have a new Eightball print with us for sale at the signings for Atomic Books and SPX. It is of the above image. We just printed up 10 at a slightly smaller size (and price) than this one, but it's of the same high-quality. This edition of 10 prints was made exclusively for SPX and it will be the only chance to see it in person. First come first serve, $350.

And I'll have a new batch of Mister Jones pins (this time manila envelope colored) that we had made up for the signing for The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist by Niem Tran of Buttoneers to give away at the signings. While supplies last.
