Anders Nilsen signs "Big Questions" at 192 Books

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Start Time: 07:00PM    End Time: 09:00PM

A haunting postmodern fable, Big Questions is the magnum opus of Anders Nilsen, one of the brightest and most talented young cartoonists working today. This beautiful and minimalist story, collected here for the first time, is the culmination of ten years and over 600 pages of work that details the metaphysical quandaries of the occupants of an endless plane, existing somewhere between a dream and a Russian steppe. Big Questions has roots in classic fable—the story's birds and snakes have more to say than their human counterparts and there are hints of the classic hero's journey, but the easy moral that closes most fables is left here as open and ambiguous. Rather than lending its world meaning, Nilsen's parable lets the questions wander out to go where they will.

Marc Bell “has a gift for incomprehensible gab, juggling a dozen language gags in complicated comic pages that, like Ulysses, could take you twenty—four hours or a lifetime to read.”—Lee Henderson Border Crossings
