FINALLY. The next installment of Comics Underground will take place on Thursday, August 2! And who, you ask, will be that evening’s special guests? Possibly because you didn’t read the above headline? Regardless, I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED:
• BEN DEWEY, artist and creator of the hilarious The Tragedy Series, which provides inspirational reminders that things could always be worse. (Art via.)
• SUZETTE SMITH, cartoonist and all-around fetching gal whose work appears weekly in the Portland Mercury. (Art via.)
• SARA RYAN, young adult novelist (Empress of the World), librarian, and comics writer. Her first graphic novel, Bad Houses, with art by Carla Speed McNeil, is forthcoming from Dark Horse Comics.
• MATT FRACTION, Architect of the Marvel Universe, writer of The Invincible Iron Man, and creator of the beloved high-concept spy comic Casanova. (Art via.)
YES. This is a lineup we are ridiculously stoked about. Be there: Thursday, August 2 at 8 pm at the Jack London Bar (529 SW 4th, Portland, Oregon). Admission is $3. Everything will be great.
P.S.! Comics Underground is now sponsored by Bridge City Comics and DC Vegetarian! Bridge City’s one of our favorite bookstores in town—visit ’em at 3725 N Mississippi, or online at bridgecitycitycomics.com. DC Vegetarian is where we eat. A lot.
