Michael DeForge on tour for Ant Colony!

FEAST YOUR EYES on this beauty of a tour poster drawn and designed by Michael DeForge, for Michael DeForge. Ant Colony will be in stores January 28 2014, and the super-prolific cartoonist will be visiting local book shops across North America to celebrate its launch. If you're unfamiliar with DeForge's singular, idiosyncratic style, I suggest you get acquainted, because he's one of alternative comics' most important new voices. Says Jaime Hernandez: "DeForge is one of those rare comics naturals and Ant Colony proves it."

From Ant Colony's opening pages, DeForge immerses the reader in a world of false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers. On the surface, he tells the story of a war between black and red ants, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all-too-familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns – loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more.

Michael DeForge will be presenting a slideshow with a signing to follow. Happy new year, y'all!
