NANCY DREW HARDY BOYS #1 | Preview
(W) Anthony Del Col (A) Werther Dell’Edera (CA) Fay Dalton

THE BIG LIE is a Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mystery unlike any other you’ve ever read…

When the teenage brothers Frank and Joe Hardy are accused of the murder of their father – a detective in the small resort town of Bayport – they must team up with the femme fatale Nancy Drew to prove their innocence (and find the real guilty party in the process) in a twisting, hard-boiled tale, complete with double-crosses, deceit and dames.

Inspired by new crime classics like Ed Brubaker’s Fatale and Darwyn Cooke’s Parker series, writer Anthony Del Col (Assassin’s Creed, Kill Shakespeare) and artist Werther Dell’Edera (Batman: Detective Comics, House of Mystery) bring the iconic teen detectives into the modern age, and redefine noir for a new generation of readers!

MARS. The near future-ish. A bomb takes out a city block on Harrison Station. The media rush to blame the local terrestrials (re:aliens,) however Superintendent Denton Coyle has a feeling that it may not be so simple… or maybe that feeling is Coyle’s hangover gut bomb. It’s unclear… like a 50/50 shot, it’s a mistake or explosive diarrhea. Maybe it’s both? In other words, it’s yet another Tuesday on Mars.

Jules Feiffer at BU

Portrait of an Artist: The Life and Work of Edward Sorel
Sunday, March 19
3:00 pm
BU at 771 Commonwealth Avenue, Howard Gotlieb Memorial Gallery, 1st Floor, Boston
FREE
Speaker: Jules Feiffer

The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University is proud to open “Portrait of an Artist: the Life and Work of Edward Sorel”, a retrospective exhibition devoted to the career of the celebrated cartoonist, satirist, author and illustrator. In addition to his more than 40 covers for the “The New Yorker”, Sorel’s art has appeared on the covers of “The Atlantic”, “Harper’s”, “Fortune”, “Forbes”, “The Nation”, “Esquire”, “American Heritage”, “The New York Times Magazine” and “Vanity Fair”. He has illustrated numerous children’s books, three of which he also wrote. “Unauthorized Portraits” (Knopf 1997) is the most recent of several collections of his work. His latest book, “Mary Astor’s Purple Diary: the Great American Sex Scandal of 1936”, was published in 2016 to critical acclaim. In 2001, the Art Directors Club of New York elected Sorel to their Hall of Fame; he is first cartoonist since John Held, Jr., to be so honored. Sorel’s papers are part of the holdings of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.

The opening will feature remarks by Sorel’s colleague, the satirist, cartoonist and author Jules Feiffer, best known for his 42-year career as an editorial cartoonist for The Village Voice. Sorel will sign copies of his books at the event; selected titles, including “Mary Astor’s Purple Diary”, will be available for purchase.
