Join us for a night of irreverent entertainment-graphic novel-style-curated by Heeb's comics editor Jeff Newelt. Eight extraordinary comics creators will project their smart, funny and sexy comics on a big screen, accompanied by a soundtrack and shenanigans.
I'm presenting the art I created for the graphic novel, Evelyn Evelyn: A Terrible Tale in Two Tomes. It was written by the world-reknowned musicians, Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley and features a foreword by the award-winning author and comic creator god,Neil Gaiman. The book will be released by Dark Horse Comics in May 2010.
The talented New York musician, actor, and playwright Howard Fishman will be the narrator. I will be reading, wielding a chainsaw, shooting a gun, and will scream my guts out. My assistant extraordinaire, Rachel Boyadis, will also assist with the presentation. We will all join in to sing Chicken Man.
