Most of us working here on ULYSSES “SEEN” are based in Philadelphia, just a short ride into the Super-City. Wish I could be on-hand for this presentation there tonight though, and I encourage any friends and fellow cartoonists in the city to check it out;
The New York Center for Independent Publishing is hosting a roundtable discussion tonight “on how comics culture has promoted potent and memorable images of New York to readers worldwide.” The talk will be moderated by Peter Gutiérrez and includes Danny Fingeroth, Gene Kannenberg Jr. (who’s reviews will now be a regular feature on our ULYSSES “SEEN” blog), Frank Tieri and Billy Tucci. Here’s a longer description of the event from Gene’s own blog with the “where, when and how much.” Stop by and remind the guys that NYC isn’t the only exciting spot in America for making comix. I would myself, but I’m stuck here in Philadelphia drawing Mr. Bloom!
