The editor of The Graphic Canon: Volume One: From The Epic of Gilgamesh to Shakespeare to Dangerous Liaisons will discuss his new book, which has already been hailed as "the graphic publishing literary event of the year," by Publisher's Weekly. The collection brings classic literatures of the world together with legendary graphic artists and illustrators. Here you’ll find over 130 illustrators representing 190 literary works over three volumes—many newly commissioned, some hard to find. Russ Kick's bestselling anthologies, including You Are Being Lied To and Everyone You Know is Wrong, have sold over half a million copies. The New York Times has dubbed Kick "an information archaeologist" and Utne Reader named him one of its "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World."
