It's a Noir at the Bar/Matt Kindt Mash-up for the release of his brand-new book Red Handed: The Fine Art of Strange Crimes, at Meshuggah Tonight's Noir at the Bar will also feature David James Keaton from Louisville. Welcome to the city of Red Wheelbarrow, where the world's greatest detective has yet to meet the crime he can't solve—every criminal in Red Wheelbarrow is caught and convicted thanks to Detective Gould's brilliant mind and cutting-edge spy technology. But lately there has been a rash of crimes so eccentric and random that even Detective Gould is stumped. Will he discover the connection between the compulsive chair thief, the novelist who uses purloined street signs to write her magnum opus, and the photographer who secretly documents peoples' most anguished personal moments? Or will Detective Gould finally meet his match? Matt Kindt operates with wit and perception in the genre of hard-boiled crime fiction. Red Handed owes as much to Paul Auster as Dashiell Hammett, and raises some genuinely sticky questions about human nature. Matt Kindt is the award-winning writer and artist of the graphic novels Revolver, 3 Story, Super Spy, 2 Sisters, and Pistolwhip. He is currently writing monthly comics for DC Comics and is writing and drawing his own monthly comic, MIND MGMT, for Dark Horse. Critically-acclaimed, Kindt's work has been nominated for four Eisner Awards and three Harvey Awards and listed in Time magazine's best graphic novels (2001) and Booklist's Top 10 Graphic Novels (Super Spy). Matt Kindt lives in Webster Groves. Copies of Red Handed (and other books by Matt Kindt) will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
