Jillian Tamaki’s SuperMutant Magic Academy hits stores everywhere on Tuesday April 28th, and we are T-H-R-I-L-L-E-D to present the official launch-day event here in Toronto! Jillian Tamaki will be on hand, giving a talk about her work, reading from SuperMutant Magic Academy, and signing books. This is a great opportunity to ask vital questions about variant strains of Dungeons & Dragons, characters’ fates, transgressive performance art, and more.
Join us for this special event, where Jillian will present from the book and be interviewed on stage by Anna Fitzpatrick, writer for The Hairpin, Rookie, and more, at Revival Bar, 783 College Street (at Shaw).
SuperMutant Magic Academy will be on sale at the event. Jillian’s books (with writer Mariko Tamaki) ‘Skim’ and ‘This One Summer’ are available in store now!
About SuperMutant Magic Academy:
SuperMutant Magic Academy paints a teenage world that is moody and ennui-filled but also wry and irreverent: the SuperMutant Magic Academy is a prep-school for mutants and witches but their paranormal abilities take a back seat to everyday teen concerns. Wendy, Marsha, Cheddar, Frances, and the other students will be your guides through the D&D games, performance art, unrequited crushes, andspell class tests that are the staples of life at the Academy.
Special thanks to Drawn & Quarterly for helping us set up this event!
