In a magnificent show of local talent and force, our Detroit performers ran the gamut of funny, friendly, eerie, crass, confusing, and disturbed (an ideal cocktail) and the city came out in full support, packing MOCAD’s warehouse-sized cafe. “Overall, it was a fascinating and highly engaging show, showing the wide range of expressive modes stemming from and expanding on the comix medium.” Go read about it, and look forward to photos and videos soon.
