Dean Haspiel presents The Red Hook, Vol. 1: New Brooklyn
In conversation with Josh Neufeld
Visual presentation and discussion
Wine reception to follow
From Emmy- and Ringo-Award winning comic artist and writer Dean Haspiel comes The Red Hook, the first collected volume of his popular web comic of the same name and a “love letter to Silver Age comics, cinema, and to Brooklyn,” (Bleedingcool.com). The Red Hook follows a unique group of heroes who emerge in the fallout from Brooklyn’s decision to secede from New York State – and in this universe, Brooklyn is not just a setting, but a sentient character with a broken heart. Once a master thief, the Red Hook has been bequeathed the Omni-Fist of Altruism and is transformed into a superhero – against his will. At this exclusive Brooklyn bookstore event, Haspiel presents his comics ode to Brooklyn with a visual presentation and preview of his new work, and a discussion with comics writer and artist Josh Neufeld, author of A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge and other works. A wine reception follows to celebrate the collection.
