So, as many of you know...Astrokitty is releasing its' first comic book...under the Astrokitty Comics Imprint and it's an anthology called "Larrytown Laffs!" which features artwork by:
Chris Dickinson ("Parentheses")
Tom Avery ("Cheating @ Solitaire")
Dale Martin ("Watusi: The Talking Dog")
Andrew Hadle ("Fancy Comix")
and has a kickass cover by KU grad Wes Wedman ("Paper Museum")
that was colored by yours truly (Joel Pfannenstiel...), and I did the layout and logo design, too!
We're all very pumped about this, our first comic release and though we'll be doing an in-store release of the ACTUAL comic, we thought we'd drum up excitement about the impending publication (which we should have available at the Planet Comicon on the 5th & 6th) of Larrytown Laffs! To that end, we have several of the creators involved with the book on-hand to sign free "ashcan editions" that show a bit of the upcoming comic and have sections for signatures and sketches by the artists on-hand!
This show is a Monday night, but we'll be rocking right and proper with local acts CLUTCH OF UNDEATH and BAIOWOLF! It's only $2 to get in (18 and up, yo) and you'll have a chance to meet the people behind this awesome collection and get a signed/sketched ashcan edition before these people skyrocket and they become big-time comic book players! Also, it's a great way to get out and support local art and the burgeoning scene of cartoonists/comic book creators we're developing!
MONDAY @ THE JACKPOT (DOORS OPEN @ 9pm), only $2! FEATURING CLUTCH OF UNDEATH & BAIOWOLF!!!
