THE PANEL JUMPER Returns To West Of Lenin This December
Join us for our fifth chapter celebrating the magic of sequential storytelling-comic books! Produced in collaboration with West of Lenin, this one-night gala features Stop, Thief! a short play by Bret Fetzer and Juliet Waller Pruzan, a world-premiere screening of the latest episode of The Panel Jumper detailing the corruption of American youth by the evils of comics in the 1950s, the nerdy musicality of indie singer-songwriter Aaron J. Shay, a thrillingly original-original superhero epic (as told by a pair of dingbats) straight from The Adventures of Rocketman and Beano, comic book industry guest Eisner nominee and New York Times best-selling artist and illustrator Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet, Flight), a live podcast recording of City Arts Magazine top-rated Perfect Bound Podcast and nerd-tastic burlesque from the weird and wacky Sally Savant.
Attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
A web series that goes all the way to the rivets to examine the details of comic book history and lore, The Panel Jumper is a quirky documentary-style program that unearths the seldom-celebrated, always colorful tales of comic book culture. Written and co-produced by Cole Hornaday (Boxoffice Magazine, Annex Theatre's Team of Heroes Trilogy and MAP Theatre's Greensward) and Ben Laurance (Caution Zero Network, SketchFest, and Gude/Laurance) this video series has intrigued and inspired name industry notables with their unique blend of history and humor.
