“Li’l Depressed Boy” writer Struble on tour
The writer of Image Comics' The Li'l Depressed Boy, S. Steven Struble, is coming to your town this weekend. Well, if you live in Kansas. Specifically, if you live in Lawrence or Wichita. He'll be doing two long-term hangs on Friday and Saturday. Friday, March 22, he'll be at Astrokitty Comics in Lawrence from 11:00am to 6:00pm, and on Saturday, March 23, he'll be at Prairie Dog Comics in Wichita. Details for the Lawrence event can be found at its Facebook event page, and the same goes for the Wichita event. I interviewed Struble almost a year and a half ago for the Pitch's Wayward Blog, and Popmatters did a much better interview right around the same time with him and artist Sina Grace. The first trade collection of The Li'l Depressed Boy (Volume One: She Is Staggering) has sold out and is now being reprinted. You can check out the new cover at the LDB Tumblr. Per Mr. Struble, what he will be bringing with him on this jaunt is as follows: "Unfortunately, no dolls or Kepi CDs. I will have t-shirts and stickers, though."
