West of Lenin and The Panel Jumper Present: THE PANEL JUMPER LIVE Chapter VI
Join us for our sixth chapter of The Panel Jumper **LIVE** and celebrate the magic of sequential storytelling-comic books! Produced in collaboration with West of Lenin, this one-night gala of excruciatingly gifted Seattle-based talent will leave you grateful for all nerd culture has to offer.
We are over the moon to announce fantabulous return of Nerd Rock pioneer, Kyle Stevens AKA Kirby Krackle! Wait, there's more-like a pulchritudinous comic strip PowerPoint from Jim Jewell introducing us to an unplumbed domain of academic inquiry: Shmoo Studies. Comic artist Lonnie Mann (Thoughts from Iceland) talks comic memoirs and his experiences going places, doing things, and eating stuff. Thrill to a newly commissioned short play by the brilliant and inimitable Maggie Lee (The Tumbleweed Zephyr, A Hand of Talons). Experience the world premiere screening of the latest Panel Jumper episode, "Jack Kirby and the Lord of Light" and thrill to the true tale of space gods, hostages and how a comic industry legend helped save six innocent lives. Revel in a live recording by that quartet of frightfully sincere nerds of the Perfect Bound Podcast. We'll close the evening with some nerd-tacular burlesque in the form of some very hot, Tolkien tease with Kir Royale and Olivia of the Stage!
Attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
