The Wrong Place UK Edition

Brecht Evens
Brecht Evens

 Rendered in vivid watercolour where parquet floors and patterned dresses morph together, The Wrong Place  revolves around oft-absent Robbie, a charismatic lothario of mysterious celebrity who has the run of a city as chaotic as it is resplendent. Robbie's sexual energy captivates the attention of men and women alike; his literal and figurative brightness is a startling foil to the dreariness of his childhood friend, Francis. With a hand as sensitive as it is exuberant, Angoulême-winner Brecht Evens's first English graphic novel captures the strange chemistry of social interaction as easily as he portrays the fragmented nature of identity. The Wrong Place contrasts life as it is, angst-ridden and awkward, with life as it can be: spontaneous, uninhibited, and free.

Belgian cartoonist Brecht Evens was born in 1986 and studied illustration in Ghent. Important mentors were his teacher Goele Dewanckel, an illustrator, and cartoonist/comedy-coach/zen master Randall Casaer. His debut comic book A Delivery from Outer Space, was released in 2005. The slightly melodramatic Vincent was released in 2006, followed in 2007 by a little nocturnal fantasy called Night Animals. His latest book, The Wrong Place (2009), started out as a graduation project and was a departure from the more typical comic art of his earlier books. It recently won the Haarlem Comic Festival's Willy Vandersteen Award for best Dutch-language graphic novel. Brecht lives in Brussels, where he lives on illustration work and Flemish cartoonist-grants.
