Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky: no pair of names strikes as much fear into the hearts of puritans everywhere. Their successful, smart romp–yes, romp–of a comic, Sex Criminals, is rewriting what we can expect from comics in 2014, and they’ll visit Columbus College of Art and Design next week to discuss their craft and their hustle.
Sex Criminals, published by Image, documents the exploits of an altruistic man and woman who stop time when they orgasm. Written by Fraction (Casanova, The Invincible Iron Man, Hawkeye) and illustrated by Zdarsky (Prison Funnies, former mayoral candidate for the city of Toronto), Sex Criminals won a 2014 Eisner Award for Best New Series.
Following up on this spring’s Craft Your Hustle event, CCAD presents this intimate discussion with the writer/illustrator team on Thursday, Oct. 23, beginning at 7pm in the Canzani Auditorium. Afterward, you can mingle with the guys at a reception held in CCAD’s MindMarket.
Check it out on Facebook here. But wait, is there a signing…?
Yes, there’s a signing…
Fraction and Zdarsky (in costume or not) will appear for a signing at The Laughing Ogre on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 3:30-6:30pm. The Ogre is located at 4258 N. High St. in Columbus. For that Facebook page, go here now.
The duo will also visit CCAD’s Comics and Narrative Illustration class, a writing workshop for student cartoonists.
