nightofyourlife.jpgDark Horse Comics has announced Jesse Reklaw will be going on the road to promote his book The Night of Your Life, a hardcover collecting five years of Reklaw’s comic strip, Slow Wave.

“This is the largest book tour I’ve been on – fifteen different events in nine states,” admits Reklaw. “In some newsweeklies my comic strip has been running for over ten years. I’ve followed the dream lives of people who’ve grown up, gotten married, had kids, etc. So it’ll be fascinating to meet these people in real life. I’m also really happy with the book; some of these comics I drew years ago, but I still get a chuckle out of them.”
