Giant Robot is proud to celebrate the release of Dolltopia with a signing by writer and artist AbbyDenson.
A natural follow-up to Denson's critically acclaimed, self-published, yaoi-influenced comic zine about high-school love, Tough Love (which became a Lulu Award-winning anthology in 2007), Dolltopia is a highly stylized depiction of dolls trying to bust out of the stereotypical boxes that they are packaged in. Will the protagonists, who resemble Barbie and G.I. Joe, liberate themselves from their suburban and he-man trappings? The art is disarmingly simple and the raw storytelling has the rare quality of being able to tap into a reader's recollections of youthful confusion and feel genuine to young people themselves.
In addition to Denson signing copies of her work, there will be cupcakes and a doll makeover contest. Whoever brings the best made-over doll will receive a signed copy of Dolltopia!
Denson will be signing the long-awaited graphic novel from 6:00 to 8:00 on Saturday, November 7th. For more information about the author, GRSF, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
