New yorkers, you should head to this. Lyra is one of the most talented people in Chicago, and she puts together one hell of an event!
BRAIN FRAME, the performative comix reading series (and Chicago’s most valuable export) is coming to New York. Watch six artists from around the country mount the pulpit to interpret their comics and zines with maximum force. Musical histories, landscape gifs, a UFO puppet, photos of forgotten females, horror crystals, and a vajazzling cat are just are few of the many splendors on imminent display. Laugh, cry, sit back, and relax // expanded comix // expanded minds.
