Next Saturday: CBLDF Presents Conversational Comics

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has been sponsoring a series of events at Brooklyn’s Union Pool this summer, specifically a series of talks with a variety of notable cartoonists moderated by Bill Kartalopoulos.  A week from today the focus shifts to Dash Shaw (of Bottomless Belly Button fame), Lisa Hanawalt (Stay Away From Other People- love her stuff) and FP employee/intergalactic mensch Austin English (Christina & Charles).

Austin English (Windy Corner, Christina and Charles), Lisa Hanawalt (Stay Away From Other People, I Want You), and Dash Shaw (Bottomless Belly Button, BodyWorld) will discuss the relationship between image-making and drawing for comics. How do pictures work differently in comics than they do on gallery walls?

Then stick around to get a book signed, hit the taco truck, and sip a summer drink with our featured cartoonists.

This panel discussion will be moderated by series curator Bill Kartalopoulos (The New School, Print Magazine).

$5 suggested donation. All proceeds go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

The series has been a real hit so far, and next Saturday’s participants are talented, interesting artists to say the least.

Plus: beer tastes best on a hot summer afternoon and suggested donation’s only five bucks!  See ya there.
