Join Reid Psaltis on Thursday, September 6 to celebrate the release of his new graphic novel Kingdom/Order. In addition to a signing, Reid will also have gorgeous original art from the book on display.
Kindgom/Order wordlessly follows a man as he searches for some sort of meaning in his life. Through symbols and sounds, it is clear that he is a part of the greater, natural world, and a bit divorced from the modern world which surrounds him. The nameless protagonist finds himself following the sounds of the animals around him – but how much of this is real, and how much is delusion? Whatever the case, Psaltis will leave you speechless.
WHO: Reid Psaltis
WHAT: Kingdom/Order release party and art exhibit
WHEN: Thursday, Sept. 6, 6-8pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St.
“Psaltis’ style in the comic is part Black Hole-era Charles Burns, part Tom Kaczynski’s Beta Testing the Apocalypse and utterly transfixing. [His] work on Kingdom/Order is an utterly unique and beautiful representation of how comics can be so simple and complex at once, how they’re able to communicate with such emotion and intensity but also be completely clear and understandable without the burden of written language.”
