This Thursday, the ToonSeum will host the third annual "Comics for Comics" event to benefit the museum, at the Rex Theater in the Southside. Dan Piraro, creator of the daily comic feature Bizarro will bring his biting comedy to the stage. The show promises to be as unpredictable and surreal as the panel itself, as Dan reminisces about his life as an artist, using a combination of stories, slides, and original music. In publication since 1985, Bizarro has won three consecutive "Best Cartoon Panel of the Year" awards from the National Cartoonists Society, and in 2010 won the most prestigious award given by the NCS, "Outstanding Comic of the Year". Currently, Dan is negotiating a half-hour animated comedy series for television. Get your TiVos ready!
Tickets for Comics for Comics III, are $25 ($20 for ToonSeum members), $40 for VIP admission (which includes a limited edition signed poster), and are available through Eventbrite. You must be 21 to attend the event. See you Thursday!
