5/30 @ 5:00pm
Adventurous Cartoonists & Far-Out Comics
(w/ live appearances by Jaime Hernandez, Johnny Ryan & others!)
Co-presented by Family Books

Cinefamily compatriot Family Books brings you a jam-packed afternoon of savory comic book history with an adventurous bent! In celebration of his new comic anthology Art in Time: Unknown Comic Books Adventures, 1940-1980, art director/editor Dan Nadel (leader of Picturebox, one of NYC's coolest publishing imprints) will present an afternoon of book signings and conversations with notable cartoonists about the impact of adventure comics on popular culture. First, Dan will begin with an overview of adventure comics -- from crime to cavemen, and back again! Next up, "Angry Youth"/"Prison Pit" author (and Cinefamily cover artist) Johnny Ryan interviews Lawrence Hubbard, co-creator of the raw 'n riotous comic series "Real Deal", set against the backdrop of a crime-ridden South Central. Later, join underground greats Sharon Rudahl, John Thompson and barbara (Willy) Mendes in a panel discussion on their work, and on the milieu of 1960s subversive comics! Wrapping up the show is "Love And Rockets" co-creator Jaime Hernandez presenting a screening of the 1949 Joseph L. Mankiewicz classic A Letter To Three Wives, followed by a discussion with Jaime on the film, moderated by cartoonist Sammy Harkham. This historic event is a must for any serious comic fan -- be sure to get your tickets early! -Cinefamily
