Synopsis

Bread & Wine is a graphic autobiography that flashes back to the unlikely story of how writer Samuel Delany befriended Dennis and how they became an enduring couple - Delany, a professor at Philadelphia's Temple University and Dennis, an intelligent man living on the streets. Readers will be moved and affected by this sexually charged story, with visuals informed by Mia Wolff s professional physical pursuits as a martial arts instructor. Her stunning black and white work captures bustling New York City and is filled with impish art references and visual puns.

About the Publisher

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books has been a leading proponent of comics as a legitimate form of art and literature since it began publishing the critical trade magazine The Comics Journal in 1976. By the early 1980s, Fantagraphics found itself at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to establish comics as a medium as eloquent and expressive as the more established popular arts of film, literature, poetry, et al. Fantagraphics quickly established a reputation as an advocacy publisher that specialized in seeking out and publishing the kind of innovative work that traditional comics corporations who dealt almost exclusively in super-heroes and fantasy either didn’t know existed or wouldn’t touch: serious, dramatic, historical, journalistic, political, and satirical work by a new generation of alternative cartoonists as well as many artists who gained prominence as part of the seminal underground comix movement of the '60s. Fantagraphics has since gained an international reputation for its literate and audacious editorial standards and its exacting production values.
