Yo yo yo, I’ll be at the New Haven Summer Comics Fest tomorrow, and you should come too. It’s all part of New Haven’s 2010 Street Fest, which will includes two stages of live bands (all day and into the night), a rockabilly car show, skateboard demo, booze, food, arts and crafts, and representatives from all your favorite underground subcultures! The Comics Fest will feature a busy sales floor of cartoonists and mini-comics creators, and a full slate of panels and presentations. And it’s all free (donation requested)! Check it out:
- Sam Henderson and Danny Hellman will join Andrew Bonia and Peter Cunningham
- Cheese Hasselberger, Lauren Barnett, and Prof. William Foster III discuss the role of comics in changing global media
- R. Sikoryak will do an adaptation presentation [not to be missed!]
- And I will be the NHSCF “keynote” speaker, doing my patented A.D. presentation
Other day-time entertainments include a twenty-minute film fest! The evening festivities will be:
- Craig Yoe‘s “Secret Identity” Presentation/Live Action Recreation
- “on the couch” interviews
- a comix dating game
- burlesque performances set to the recorded music of R. Crumb!
If you’re in New England you can’t miss this! Details:
