Rina Ayuyang at Giant Robot SF Saturday, July 17

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
GRSF 618 Shrader Street San Francisco, CA 94117
Giant Robot is proud to host a reception and book signing with comic book artist Rina Ayuyang to celebrate the release of her debut graphic novel, Whirlwind Wonderland, published by Sparkplug Comic Books and Tugboat Press.
Whirlwind Wonderland follows the life-altering exploits of a somewhat-normal Filipino American girl as she meanders through sleepy suburban sprawls, empty diners, fantasy-filled commuter traffic jams, misplaced football fanaticism, ethnic identity crash courses, and just good ole family hi-jinx. The book showcases new stories and old favorites written and drawn by Rina Ayuyang, cartoonist and creator of “Namby Pamby,” a mini-comic series that explores the humorous side of life’s ordinary moments.
“This compilation of work by Rina Ayuyang is a testament to the fact that honest and transparent storytelling about one’s own life can be as dramatic and gripping as anything about a celebrity or world leader.” – Giant Robot
