Win Tickets to the FINAL Comics Underground!

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Wed, Jun 11, 2014 at 12:14 PM

  • Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky

Tomorrow's it, people: After three years and 11 shows, Alison and I are ending our Comics Underground reading series. Tomorrow night's show is our 12th and final Comics Underground—and we've lined up no fewer than six of our favorite Portland creators to end the goddamn thing in style:

• The charming Ben Dewey and Paul Tobin will be showing off their new book, I Was the Cat, FEATURING A TALKING CAT....

  • I Was the Cat by Paul Tobin and Ben Dewey

• The delightful Cat Farris will present her adorable minicomic Flaccid Badger....

  • Cat Farris

• Jeff Parker is doing a whole bunch of super-fun, super-aquatic Aquaman stuff....

  • Aquaman by Jeff Parker and Paul Pelletier

• Joëlle Jones has made something just for this event, and it's great, and... well, I'll just leave part of it here:

  • Joëlle Jones

• And Matt Fraction is showing off some of his beloved Sex Criminals (please see "Bloobing," located at the the top of this post).

It's going to be a fantastic show—and Alison and I are giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky Blogtown reader! To enter to win, email me no later than 3 pm today (Wed June 11), and make sure the subject line of your email is "flaccid badger." I'll pick a winner this afternoon and email them back. The rest of you will have to pay to get in, but all of you will be able to tell your grandchildren that you went to the final Comics Underground. "You know, children, looking back," you'll say, "after that night, my life was never the same."

Comics Underground, The Jack London Bar, 529 SW 4th, Thurs June 12 at 8 pm, $5
