Anders Nilsen will be at SPX debuting his latest book, Rage of Poseidon from Drawn & Quarterly, as well as signing his latest from Fantagraphics, The End, an expanded hardcover edition of his work published as part of the Ignatz Series with Coconino Press. As with last year’s, Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow, The End deals with the death of Nilsen’s fiance.
