Comix Experience is delighted to have Leela Corman in the store for the first time signing copies of her debut graphic novel, Unterzakhn.
Unterzakhn is a beautiful book that tells the mesmerizing story of immigrants growing up in New York cities Lower East Side at the turn of the century, as seen through the eyes of twin sisters and the radically & tragically different paths their lives take.
Former Comix Experience guest Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi) had this to say about the book: “Lures you in with wittiness and sensuality...then bites you in the tuchus! Unterzakhn swirls with the energy of Almodóvar and the depth of Dostoyevsky as it follows the fates of two charmingly complicated twin sisters. I loved it.”
Leela Corman has illustrated numerous books on a variety of subjects, as well as had her work appear in the New York Times, Bust, Lilith, and more! Unterzakhn will be available in stores on April 3rd, and is the first graphic novel to be published by Schocken Books.
