A supercool comics event, one of so many recently, is taking place tonight at the Newark Museum. Now, you may be afraid of going to Newark, but we were there a few weekends ago, and honest, it was a very easy walk from the train station to the museum. And the show itself is jaw dropping and must see. MUST SEE. Anyway, don’t be afraid to go to this event, because it sounds very worthwhile and it has a ginchy postcard:
EAST COAST ALTERNATIVE CARTOONISTS MEET THE MASTERS
Michael Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle)
Jason Little (Shutterbug Follies)
James Sturm (The Golem’s Mighty Swing)
Lauren R. Weinstein (Girl Stories)
Moderated by R. Sikoryak (Carousel, Nickelodeon Magazine, Drawn & Quarterly)
This multi-media presentation features cutting-edge cartoonists reading from their own work, discussing the current “Masters of American Comics” exhibit, and exploring new opportunities in form and content.
