Aaron Renier Discusses The Unsinkable Walker Bean & The Knights of the Waxing Moon 10/26

7:00 pm

SHIPWRECKED! After their perilous encounter with the sea-witches, Walker and the pirate crew of the Jacklight find refuge on a deserted island. But it might not be as deserted as it seems?shadowy creatures have been spotted in the jungle, and strange animal tracks appear overnight. When Walker, Shiv, and Genoa discover a secret passage and mysterious ruins, the dark history of the archipelago begins to unravel. Legend tells of a mad king, a fallen civilization, and a powerful royal family in search of their lost sister. In this triumphant follow-up to the epic graphic novel The Unsinkable Walker Bean, Aaron Renier is back with more breathtaking art and high-sea adventure in Knights of the Waxing Moon.

Aaron Renier creates worlds that are so convincing and immersive that his readers are forever transformed. Walker Bean is a worthy heir to Tintin and deserves – and will not disappoint – a similarly wide audience.” –Dave Eggers

AARON RENIER is the author of three graphic novels for younger readers; Spiral-Bound, Walker Bean, and Walker Bean and the Knights of the Waxing Moon. He is the recipient of the Eisner award in 2006 for talent deserving of wider recognition, and was an inaugural resident for the Sendak Fellowship in 2010. He teaches at DePaul University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
