Comics Underground is a curated, staged comic book reading—creators read dialogue or scripts as images are displayed on our fancy pants digital projector. Participants provide their own soundtracks, sound effects, actors, live music—whatever they want, really.
This edition’s participants:
• Artist and writer Dylan Meconis is known for Bite Me! and Family Man, two books that take place in ye olden times but also feature vampires and werewolves!
• Artists and pals Ron Chan and Sean Kelley’s webcomic, Roy’s Boys, is about Roy Kwong and Shane Conway, two pals who lead suspiciously similar lives to Mssrs. Chan and Kelley. When they aren’t making Roy’s Boys, Chan and Kelley do other comics and videogame-related work.
• Artist and writer Mike Russell is best known for his comic Sabertooth Vampire, about a saber-toothed vampire who can’t catch a break. He’s also written and drawn Mr. Do & Mr. Don’t, written the Star Wars spoof Jaxxon’s 11, and created decidedly un-family friendly holiday fable Santa’s Little Gimp.
• Ryan Alexander-Tanner teaches kids how to make comics! (Also, you know that picture of Dave on Dave’s Killer Bread? He drew that.) He’ll be bringing some of his students’ best work to show off, and if you think it’s going to be merely “adorable,” you have no idea.
