A cornucopia of comics debuts are set to be unleashed upon Bergen Street Comics!

Here’s what’s on tap:

A. Degen’s surrealist superhero adventure MIGHTY STAR AND THE CASTLE OF THE CANCATERVATER (Koyama Press), equal parts Dalí and Astro Boy, Degen’s mostly silent narrative is both metaphysical and mighty; Blaise Larmee’s 3 BOOKS (2D Cloud) is an eclectic and meticulously crafted reproduction of rare and unpublished books; Émilie Gleason’s SALZ & PFEFFER (2D Cloud) a taboo-soaked world of the inane and the intellectual, the profane, profound, and parodic; Andy Burkholder’s QVIET (2D Cloud) focuses on the abstractions of sex, of seeing, and the fluid relations between the two; Robert Goodin’s THE KURDLES (Fantagraphics) is an all-ages comic, in the spirit of Hergé’s Tintin or Carl Barks’ Uncle Scrooge, spiced up with a teaspoon of strange.

Celebrate MoCCA Fest weekend with an incredible night of bleeding edge comics and cartoonists! Facebook event page right here!

QVIET : A TCAF 2015 Debut Book

by Andy Burkholder

If someone else out there is working this fearlessly with the silliness of sex, I’m almost afraid to find out. — The Comics Journal

Burkholder uses line in fresh and startling ways to cast new light on humanity’s most enduring obsession. — Anya Davidson

Qviet focuses on the abstractions of sex, of seeing, and the fluid relations between the two. Using the strip, one of the oldest formal modes in comics, as the misleadingly benign container for his explorations, Burkholder challenges the reader to reimagine not only what falls under the purview of this form, but the larger conceptions of sex as a set of abstract symbols that inform our daily lives. Qviet stands as an example of the ever expanding potential of comics in the 21st century.

Debuting at TCAF from 2D Cloud, 248 pages, 5.5 ✕7, Paperback w/ band $22.95

For more information on these and all books debuting at TCAF 2015, please visit our Debuting Books page.
