Comic Book Movie night! This Sunday May 30th!

In celebration of his new book, Art in Time: Unknown Comic Books Adventures, 1940-1980, Dan Nadel will present an afternoon of conversations and signings with notable cartoonists at The Cinefamily. First, Dan will begin with an overview of adventure comics -- from crime to cavemen, and back again! Next up, Johnny Ryan, resident Vice house artist, and auteur behind Angry Youth Comix and Prison Pit 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 underground 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. Should be fun.
starts at 5 pm and tickets are $10.
