Last week graphic novelist Paul Sizer of Kalamazoo, debuted his new book B.P.M. to both fans of comics and music. Paul spoke on his love of dance/electronic music which inspired him to create this new graphic novel based on a struggling D.J. in New York City. Author visits from Sizer always have a strong multi-media presence and as expected Paul did not disappoint! Instead of a straight reading from the book, Paul showed the audience pages from the book as he read with music in the background. In addition, Paul described the process of not only writing and drawing the book, but also how he worked with the printer to create his first full colored graphic novel. The event ended with the first author visit ever at KPL that included a beat-mixing demo!
