Because Rodney Dangerfield isn't the only comic overdue for some respect, this Sunday South Austin's Tribe Comics & Games is showcasing a collection of visual marvels based on both mainstream and indie legends, none named Arie Luyendyk. Stop by to scope:
- Busts of Spiderman and The Atom, as well as Batman portraits from four different periods -- or should that be "four different exclamation marks!!!!"
- Repurposed golden-era notebooks from Crab Apple Design
- Bronze-cast sculptures of villainous monsters and robots by M. Lawrence "Don't Call Me Bones, This Is Comics Not TV" McCoy
- Tees and prints depicting Robo Roku's personified tofu characters, all of them much tastier than actual tofu
- Morose woodblock illustrations of Amazonian women and vampiric popes (insert sacrament joke here)
- Cleavage-heavy superhero pin-ups from DarthTerry, whose naked appearance in Failure to Launch made everyone feel like they were choking to death
Some actual inkers will be in attendance, like the masterminds behind teleplay-turned-comic-turned-stage-production Intergalactic Nemesis, the creator of Halloween Man, and Comic Dark Series (Psyko Bunny! Bloody Marie!) visionary King Kohn. Finally, there'll be live art by Paulo Hernandez, otherwise known as Psy55cho -- respect him, or he'll turn into a Natural Born Killer.
