Sequential Art Gallery presents THE ART OF “THE NEW DEAL”, an exhibit of pages from the graphic novel by JONATHAN CASE. The exhibit opens this Thursday, November 5th, with an open reception from 6pm to 10pm. There will also be an artist’s reception on Thursday, November 19th, from 7pm-10pm, where Case will be in attendance.
“The New Deal” is Case’s brand new graphic novel set in Depression-era New York City, published by Dark Horse Comics. When a glamorous woman checks into the Waldorf Astoria Hotel with her high society entourage, a series of burglaries puts the heat on two hotel staff: A white bellhop and a black maid, Frank and Theresa. With the stakes rising fast, the two friends must rely on each other to survive the hotel’s delicate class politics and discover the truth.
Jonathan Case is an Eisner award-winning cartoonist whose work includes “Dear Creature” (Tor, 2011), “Green River Killer” (Dark Horse, 2011), “Batman ’66” (DC Comics, 2013), and now “The New Deal” hardcover (Dark Horse, 2015) which was just released in October. He lives in Portland with his wife, Sarah, and their children, Dorothy and Otis.
The Art of “The New Deal” will be on display throughout the month of November, with gallery hours on Mondays from 2pm-6pm, Saturdays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit will close at the end of business on Saturday, November 28th.
