Happy Birthday D&Q!

The D&Q is not for Dairy Queen, but for our beloved graphic novel imprint, Drawn & Quarterly, which turns 25 this year!

To celebrate, they’ve put out an ah-mazing anthology: DRAWN & QUARTERLY: Twenty-five Years of Contemporary Cartooning, Comics, and Graphic Novels, which digs into the archives and features comics, biographies, personal reminiscences, and photographs, as well as new works by Michael DeForge, Guy Delisle, Miriam Katin, R. Sikoryak, and Jillian Tamaki and essays by Margaret Atwood, Jonathan Lethem, Sheila Heti, and Deb Olin Unferth.

Last weekend The New York Times ran a profile on D&Q, mentioning the anthology and how the imprint has become a champion for female cartoonists:

“So it seems somehow fitting, in a theater season in which the musical adaptation of the alternative cartoonist Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel ‘Fun Home’ won five major Tonys, that Drawn & Quarterly is celebrating its 25th anniversary by putting out a strikingly designed 776-page book that makes clear that its rise from Montreal ’zine to well-regarded publisher of graphic novels is inextricably intertwined with the advance of women in independent comics.” readmoreremove
