B+F in October from AdHouse Books

B+F in October from AdHouse Books

B+F

B+F by Gregory Benton.
Co-published by AdHouse Books + Éditions çà et là

“B+F” is Gregory Benton’s MoCCA Award of Excellence-winning fable. It explores an otherworldly forest with a woman and a dog as they encounter its denizens, both benevolent and malicious. A wordless meditation on goodwill, hostility, and isolation.

Chris Pitzer of AdHouse Books had the following to say:
“I consider this project magical and serendipitous. After taking a midnight bus from Richmond, VA to NYC for the 2013 MoCCA Art Fest, I just happened to be exhibiting across the aisle from Gregory. He and I had the fortune of working together back in Project: Telstar days, and I have always loved his comics. He had a preview of B+F for sale, and I was the first to purchase one that day. As the weekend progressed, he would eventually win the MoCCA Award of Excellence and I would point Serge ( of Éditions çà et là ) in his direction. The following week, we had all inked deals to make this co-publishing endeavor happen. I’ve never done this, and I’m excited to take this next step.”
