Comics Underground - happening tonight!

I will be part of the second Comics Underground reading event happening in Portland, OR, tonight. Come on out!

For those who can't be there, you can read this short questionnaire with me over on the Cosmic Treadmill site.

Comics Underground is a staged reading—only the performers read dialogue from their own comics, with images projected above them. Performers provide their own soundtracks, sound effects, live music—whatever they want, really. It’s in a bar, it’s pretty informal, and the last one featured extemporaneous guitar accompaniment and broken-window sound effects courtesy of a bottle scrounged from behind the bar.

Here’s a bit more info on this edition’s guests:

• Writer Jamie S. Rich and artists Joëlle Jones and Nicolas Hitori De collaborate on the Oni Press-released mean-teen-witch comic Spell Checkers. 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 miniseries. She’ll be presenting a comic from a recent anthology about New York venue CBGB, published by Boom! Studios.

• Artist Natalie Nourigat is a member of Periscope Studio and creator of Between Gears and Over the Surface. She’ll be reading some original autobiographical comics.

• 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.

i love the comics. starting with dc and continuing with the japanese fan art, especially the comics in the UK have a considerable value.
