For the second installment of our live! comics! reading! extravaganza!, Comics Underground welcomes another seemingly random but actually exquisitely curated selection of local comics talent.
• Writer Jamie S Rich and artists Joelle Jones and Nico Hitori de collaborate on the Oni Press-released mean-teen-witch comic SPELLCHECKERS; they'll be reading from the new volume, and Rich will also present some autobiographical work.
• Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick has worked on a number of Marvel Comics titles, including the well-received OSBORN: EVIL INCARCERATED miniseries — she'll be presenting a comic from a recent anthology about New York venue CBGB, published by Boom! Studios.
• Greg Rucka has written STUMPTOWN, WHITEOUT, QUEEN & COUNTRY, THE PUNISHER, and much more—as of right this moment, he hasn't decided yet what he'll be reading, but we're pretty sure he'll pull together something great.
They promise to entertain you*, we promise to plug the appropriate cords into the appropriate projectors, and the bar promises to have some booze in it.
(*okay, no one actually PROMISED to entertain, but we have high hopes for this crew.)Click here for the RSVP on Facebook
