The Vancouver Westender looks at the local underground scene, including Drippytown, with an art exhibit, and a cover feature.

Hey Folks, Guess What? Comics Aren’t Just For Kids Anymore!â€? screams the title of an edition of Vancouver artist Robin Konstabaris’s comic strip, Clip’n’Save.

“…Now they’re also for adults with childlike mentalities and adolescent male power fantasies… misunderstood urban intellectuals… and movie producers looking for ‘fresh’ ideas and readymade storyboards!â€?

Konstabaris’s good-natured poke at the hype surrounding the ongoing rise of the comic book industry hangs at Book Forms, an exhibit featuring the work of 11 Vancouver comic artists and book illustrators.
