 “Kuper’s art is, page after page, astonishing.”
—Jules FeifferWord Up welcomes Peter Kuper as he presents his gorgeous new graphic novel Ruins, which explores the shadows and light of Mexico through longtime relationships and unsettled pasts, political strikes and desperate futures, the characters of Oaxaca and the journey of the monarch butterfly. Peter will also discuss his previous graphic books, including many that are available in translation in Spanish.

He is the cofounder of World War 3 Illustrated, a political comix magazine.
