Mannie Murphy & Stephen R. Bissette: I Never Promised You A Rose Garden Virtual Book Launch
Tue, Mar. 23, 2021 @ 6:00 pm
Tuesday, March 23, Floating World Comics and Fantagraphics Books welcome PDX artist Mannie Murphy to celebrate the release of their new book, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden! Joining Mannie in conversation on this virtual book launch is creator Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing, Tyrant, Taboo).
Told in the style of an illustrated diary, I Never Promised You A Rose Garden begins as an affectionate reminiscence of the author’s 1990s teenage infatuation with the late actor River Phoenix but morphs into a remarkable, sprawling account of the city of Portland and state of Oregon’s dark history of white nationalism.
