Jeff Zwirek celebrates the release of the 2nd printing of his book with the Second Great Chicago Fire Tour.
Between August 13th and August 27th, Jeff Zwirek will be touring the top comic shops in Chicago in support of the 2nd printing of his graphic novel Burning Building Comix.
Chicago artist, Jeff Zwirek self-published his debut Graphic Novel, Burning Building Comix, in late 2012. Less than a year later, Zwirek’s supply was nearly gone, thanks in large part to the direct market distribution he received with Diamond Comics Distribution through alternative comic’s publisher Top Shelf. After a spate of universal acclaim, Zwirek has gone back to press with a 2nd printing. In that time, Burning Building Comix, was named in a few year-end top ten lists, including USA Today, and it gained Zwirek the role of featured artist on Slate.com for their July book review section, which also called the book, “The most inventively made comic of the year.”
