Dbl Launch / Babybel Wax Bodysuit & The Beaver Zine Library says
Join us in celebrating the launch of the Beaver's new zine library, curated by Lee D'Angelo, as well as Eric Kostiuk Williams' new comic book, Babybel Wax Bodysuit!

// // // // //

"In Babybel Wax Bodysuit, cartoonist Eric Kostiuk Williams presents a collection of short stories delving into self-worth, Internet culture, and the fascinating grotesqueries offered up by our science-fiction present, all rendered in what curator Luis Jacob ("Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto") has referred to as a "unique visual style, narrated in a fabulous spirit of liquid intelligence."

In this issue: our author, as a closeted teen, navigates comic book message boards and befriends a Pentecostal Christian! Keith Haring fights off gentrification in the 1980's East Village! A familiar pop star breaks free of her Las Vegas promoters, one hundred years in the future! And more..."

The comic launch will be going from 7 to 10pm, with dancing to follow.
