Media Release — The Cartoon Art Museum’s Monsters of Webcomics exhibition is so big that it needs TWO opening receptions with special guest Nick Gurewitch, creator of the popular webcomic The Perry Bible Fellowship.
On Thursday, August 27, Gurewitch will meet fans and sign copies of the two bestselling Perry Bible Fellowship collections, The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack. The booksigning is free and open to the public.
On Friday, August 28, Gurewitch guides Perry Bible Fellowship fans through an artistic thesis about visual storytelling, and will go behind the scenes of comic-production with co-writer/spiritual advisor Evan Keogh. As an added bonus, never-before-seen comics by Gurewitch will be on display as part of the Cartoon Art Museum’s Monsters of Webcomics exhibition. Special guest Michael Capozzola (stand-up comedian and creator of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Surveillance Caricatures) will lead a Q&A with Gurewitch immediately following the presentation. This is a ticketed event. General admission for this presentation is $10, or $5 for members of the Cartoon Art Museum.
The Cartoon Art Museum would like to thank the generous sponsors who made this event possible. JetBlue Airways (http://www.jetblue.com) provided Mr. Gurewitch’s airfare, and Dark Horse Comics (http://www.darkhorsecomics.com) assisted with publicity and other promotional considerations.
