Drawn & Quarterly Publish Seth's Clyde Fans Box Set in 2019 Solicitations

Clyde Fans by Seth has become one of my favourite comic books. A slow paced, glacial examination of a social and economic ice shelf slowly melting and then suddenly breaking away. About a major change to the way we are, that everyone could have seen coming and no one did, an exercise in sticking one's head in the sand and incredibly relevant to the moves that capitalism is making now and the realisation that this has happened before – and always has. A family business that makes and sells home and office fans but cannot save itself from self-destruction. And Drawn And Quarterly and collecting the whole damn thing into a big Box Set in D&Q's March 2019 solicitations, for publication in April…

(W) Seth (A/CA) Seth

Twenty years in the making, legendary Canadian cartoonist Seth's landmark series Clyde Fans shows the rituals, hopes, and delusions of a middle-class that has long ceased to exist in North America. Abe and Simon Matchcard are brothers, the second generation struggling to save their archaic family business. Much like the myth of an ever-growing economy, their family unit is a fraud-the patriarch has abandoned the business to mismatched sons, one who strives to keep the business afloat and the other who retreats into the arms of the remaining parent. Presented in a deluxe slipcase edition, Clyde Fans is an epic time capsule of a storyline that begs rereading.

(W) Lisa Wool-Rim Sj?blom (A/CA) Lisa Wool-Rim Sj?blom

Thousands of South Korean children were adopted around the world in the 1970s and 1980s. More than nine thousand found their new home in Sweden, including the cartoonist Lisa Wool-Rim Sjöblom. Throughout her childhood she struggled to fit into the homogenous Swedish culture and was continually told to suppress the innate desire to know her origins. In this emotionally charged memoir, Sjöblom's unaddressed feelings about her adoption come to a head when she is pregnant with her first child. As she digs deeper into her own backstory, she realizes her own history may not match up with the story she's been told her whole life: that she was an orphan without a background.
