… it’s going to be fairly fairly fucking awesome, and you can trust me when I say this, because I am someone who is in the know.
BEN DEWEY will present some tragedies from his phenomenal Tragedy Series. Your life will be made immeasurably better by Dewey’s comics, because they will remind you how much worse your life could be. For example:
SARA RYAN will read from her Flytrap series, specifically “Episode Four: Performance Anxiety,” featuring art by Sarah Burrini. Of the comic, I will say only that much of Sara’s story takes place at the Alibi—which means approximately 98 percent of Comics Underground attendees will suffer cripplingly humiliating karaoke flashbacks during the event. Wheeeee!
SUZETTE SMITH will read her story “The Man Who Dies,” which features both outer space and sexual intercourse. Can one ever go wrong combining these things? No, one cannot. It is impossible.
As for MATT FRACTION:
That “BATMAN DREAMS… thing” would be the piece Fraction first performed at w00tstock, “Batman Dreams of Hieronymus Machines,” which Warren Ellis called “brilliant” and Laura Hudson called “a smart, funny, and very personal reflection on comics.” So whatever Fraction’s cooking up for Thursday will likely be similarly brilliant, smart, and funny. Or it will be once Fraction gets it to us. Which he hasn’t yet. Because he’s writing Thor. But not even the God of Thunder will prevent us from debuting it for you on Thursday.
See you then.
