OH MY GOD. IT’S TIME! FINALLY!
Sorry about the longer-than-usual hiatus between shows—Erik hates the holidays, Alison’s cat got sick, and with one thing and another it took us a while to get this thing off the ground. But we did! And we’re so excited to announce the guests for the March 13 installment of Comics Underground: Douglas Wolk, Zack Soto, and Jeannette Langmead!
As always, Comics Underground takes place at the Jack London Bar underneath the Rialto Pool Room (529 SW 4th) at 8 pm; admission is a $3-5 sliding scale. The next show is on Thursday, March 13.
DOUGLAS WOLK reviews comics and music for The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Believer, and other fancy places. He recently penned the miniseries Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two (pictured above), which he’ll be presenting at Comics Underground along with the rest of the book’s creative team, artist Ulises Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill.
ZACK SOTO is the creator of The Secret Voice, publisher of Study Group Comics, and co-founder of Portland’s newest comics festival, Linework NW.
JEANNETTE LANGMEAD makes “kid stuff for growns” at her website CatsAreGross.com, where in addition to customizable paper dolls and science workbooks, you’ll find autobiographical comics about dating, living abroad, and more.
One response to “Announcing March’s Comics Underground: Douglas Wolk, Zack Soto, and Jeannette Langmead!”
Hi – not sure if you’ll pay attention to this, but I’ve attended all comics underground events and was generally happy that the quality kept going up (after birthing pains) and there was enough preparation by the presenters. The November 2013 was the best, where presenters took their job seriously and brought their artwork without text. I expected the March one to top even that, but sadly this one was pretty bad. The presenters seemed more interested in promoting their work than to give insight into their art. My request is that you please ask that future presenters to not be tempted to use this as a free publicity channel. Thanks for organizing this event!
