Everyone is invited to Dragonfly Books for a free event with graphic novel author E. Eero Johnson and his new book Tsu and the Outliers. Featuring Tsu, a spunky non-verbal hero, Tsu and the Outliers uses beautiful inky drawings to pull readers into a fantastical world. E. Eero Johnson will share his stories, talk about his experiences with neuro-diversity, and sign books on Monday, January 14 at 7:00 PM at Dragonfly Books.

Tsu and the Outliers (Uncivilized Books 2018) is a graphic novel about a non-verbal boy whose rural existence appears unbearable until rumors of a giant monster upend his mundane life. When a secret organization begins probing his connection with the creature, Tsu finds himself at the center of a strange mystery. As the dragnet closes in, Tsu is forced to choose a dangerous path leading beyond the periphery of human perception.

E. Eero Johnson brings Tsu to life with beautifully detailed, inky style illustrations. Tsu must balance the challenges of two separate worlds: being neuro-diverse and different in a small town, and having unique powers in a treacherous and fantastical world of monsters.

E. Eero Johnson is a graphic artist from Minnesota. His illustrations have appeared in New Yorker, Rolling Stone Magazine, and Wired. His comics have been featured in the Los Angeles Magazine, New York Times, and Nozone. He collaborated on the Minnesota Book Award Nominated hybrid novel/graphic novel Original Fake with author Kirstin Cronn-Mills. Tsu and the Outliers is Johnson’s first complete graphic novel.

"One wild and wooly adventure, it's like Alan Moore and Gary Panter had a love child, rivaling Stranger Things for its beautiful thrills. This is a treasure." -- Toby Barlow
