The Next Day Toronto book launch and exhibition

by: Austin Paul

On Tuesday, May 3 at the NFB Mediatheque in Toronto, Pop Sandbox are celebrating the launch of their newest graphic novella The Next Day written by Paul Peterson and Jason Gilmore and illustrated by John Porcellino.

The event will be free of charge and will take place from 7:00pm – 10:00pm at The National Film Board of Canada Mediatheque located at 150 John St. (at Richmond St. W) in Toronto.

The night will feature intimate discussion with the entire creative team behind the graphic novella including artist John Porcellino.

After the discussion there will be reception which will mark the opening of an ongoing exhibition of artwork from The Next Day as well as animations, soundscapes and more from the upcoming interactive documentary. This exhibition will be continuing through May at the NFB Mediatheque.

THE NEXT DAY is a groundbreaking graphic novella constructed from intimate interviews with survivors of near-fatal suicide attempts. In this poetic and profound philosophical exploration, four seemingly ordinary people each offer haunting personal insight into life, the decision to end it, and what comes after… It is produced and published by Pop Sandbox, the award-winning company behind KENK: A Graphic Portrait.

The team behind The Next Day will be guests at the upcoming Toronto Comics Art Festival on May 7 and 8 and will also be appearing at the Drawn & Quarterly store in Montreal on May 10.

The Next Day will be available in Canadian bookstores and North American comic shops in early May.

We can’t wait for the launch and wish everyone involved the best of the luck!
