Where: Lili Cafe 3138 Dobson St Polish Hill Pittsburgh 15219
When: Wednesday April 30th 7 to 9pm
What: First meeting of the PITTSBURGH COMIC BOOK ACADEMY
I’ve been wanting to try a “floating academy” for awhile now. This FREE event will be a simple hangout for anyone and everyone in the Pittsburgh area who wants to take comic book classes. I have tried to do this at Copacetic Comics upstairs in the same building but there are no chairs and tables - so I talked Lili Cafe into staying open an hour later than usual and we are going to try it out. I will lead a simple drawing exercise and we will talk shop. FREE. 7 to 9 - wednesday April 30th.

Sky in Stereo #2 by Mardou
The second issue in this captivating series about navigating the mixed-up years of late adolescence as they segue into early adulthood has arrived.  As we have written previously, Mardou has the rare gift of making pen and ink people come alive on the page.  Her stories turn the pockets of days inside out and dig through the detritus to search for their emotional content, which she then arranges, just so.   Knowing just which moments to share, and when and where to place them in the narrative, her deceptively simple and straightforward representations capture key moments on the page, connecting them with the readers’ own reality through shared actions and environments.  This 48 page issue can be considered the “title track” of the series, revealing the sky in stereo for all to see and, in imagination, hear, in a trick of sound and vision made possible through the magic of comics.
