Comix Battle this Tuesday, November 3!

Hi all,
Comix Battle this Tuesday, 6pm. Free. Be there!

Infusing the sacred art of comics creation with the flippant irreverence of improv comedy and the swaggering bravado of professional wrestling, the “Comic Art Battle” is a live art spectacle that pits the comic book world's most talented creators, writers and artists against each other in a clash of lightning-quick wits and spontaneous draftsmanship.

 A successful team of battlers will have to deploy talent and strategy as well as natural charisma in order to win over the audience during a series of timed matches, all of which are heavy on audience participation and ultimately judged by audience applause. The menagerie of challenges ranges from one-on-one cage matches where two artists must sketch a volunteer from the audience in an audience-suggested setting, to an all-out brawl where every team member must get up on stage at once and put their heads together to create a six-panel comic based on an audience-suggested theme in under five minutes.

With an ever-revolving roster of contenders, dynamic team line-ups, and a growing assortment of bone-crushing challenges, these unpredictably uninhibited events are never the same and always full of surprises!
