WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Join us for our fifth chapter celebrating the magic of sequential storytelling — comic books! Produced in collaboration with West of Lenin, this one-night gala features Stop, Thief!, a short play by Bret Fetzer and Juliet Waller Pruzan; a world premiere screening of the latest episode of The Panel Jumper detailing the corruption of American youth by the evils of comics in the 1950s; the nerdy musicality of indie singer-songwriter Aaron J. Shay; a thrillingly original-original superhero epic (as told by a pair of dingbats) straight from The Adventures of Rocketman and Beano; comic book industry guest Eisner nominee and New York Times best-selling artist and illustrator Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet, Flight), a live podcast recording of City Arts Magazine top-rated Perfect Bound Podcast; and nerd-tastic burlesque from the weird and wacky Sally Savant.
Attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
