B+F started off as a large-folio self-published and lavish art comic that turned the heads of judges at MoCCA Fest 2013 in New York, and was picked up by Adhouse Books for a full graphic novel treatment in the hands of visual arts master Gregory Benton. It's the talk of the town when it comes to art comics, and Benton's going to be inscribing madly at Angouleme coming up with his trademark full art renderings inside the large covers of the new book. But you don't have to go to France to get one of these beauties hand-drawn inside by Benton–he's probably coming to a shop near you. In a really wide-ranging tour, B+F and Benton are hitting the road. Have a look and see if you can catch him on his cross-continent odyssey.

Adhouse Books says: "B+F," Gregory Benton's MoCCA Award of Excellence-winning fable, explores an otherworldly forest with a woman and a dog as they encounter its denizens, both benevolent and malicious. A wordless meditation on goodwill, hostility, and isolation".
