New York has the Naked Cowboy, but we’ve got Zanta. The infamous Toronto weirdo and scantily-clad street performer, who has a penchant for getting banned from places, is known for bobbing around the city doing pushups in a Santa hat. And now he’s once again getting some recognition in the form of a graphic novel.

Zanta: The Living Legend, a comic-book biography about Zanta (whose real name is David Zancai), officially launches on Oct. 18. Author Jason Kieffer will be at The Central from 7-9 p.m. reading excerpts from the book and participating in a Q&A afterwards. No word yet on whether Zanta will make an appearance.
