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.

Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life
Ulli Lust
published by Fantagraphics

A massive  450 page graphic novel from Germany written and drawn by a 40-something Austrian.  The recipient of several major European awards, including the Revelation Award at the 2011 Angoulême Festival, Today Is the Last Day was originally published as Heute Ist Der Letzte Tag Vom Rest Dienes Leben by Avant-Verlag, Berlin, Germany in 2009.  It is presented here in an edition edited and translated by - surprise! - Kim Thompson (who else?).  Set in 1984, Ulli Lust’s tale chronicles the eventful journey the then 17 year-old author takes with her best friend from her home in Vienna to the island of Sicily.  Sex & drugs & rock ‘n’ roll and more are here for the reader’s enjoyment.  Take a moment to savor this generous PDF preview provided by Fantagraphics.  This work has accumulated much critical acclaim in Europe, but we’ll leave you with this quote from someone whose opinion we know you’ll respect:  ”Ulli Lust really nails my favorite part of storytelling.  Bumming cigarettes, learning how to hitchhike – the small details that create great character.” – Jaime Hernandez
