Our friends Tom Hart and Leela Corman over at the Sequential Artists Workshop in Florida need your help! They are all about making comics education affordable for all and have been doing a great job thus far. SAW currently has an IndieGoGo campaign up with a ton of great rewards geared to you. A mere ten bucks gets you a mini from Steven Weissman, Jessica Abel, Box Brown or more from their fantastic list of contributors. Thirty-six dollars can get you a whole saddle-bag full of minis. There's art by David Lasky, an Eric Curry shirt and much, much more!

Sketching Furman

Don't forget! Tomorrow night at 6pm in Furman Hall on the NYU School of Law campus there is the (Un)covering Guantanamo Panel with Janet Hamlin. 

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the ACLU are delighted to bring together a panel of speakers with unparalleled experience depicting and reporting on the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the military commission trials taking place there.

Included on this panel are Janet Hamlin, artist behind Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, and Carol Rosenberg, who wrote the foreword for the book.

This distinguished group of journalists will address the challenges and opportunities of covering the most important terrorism trials of our time at an off-shore military base, discuss long-standing allegations of censorship and excessive secrecy, and consider the extent to which the United States government has succeeded (or not) in managing the public image of Guantanamo and the military commissions. They will also discuss the fates and stories of the detainees they have covered.

Join them at Furman Hall [ 245 Sullivan Street ] on the 9th Floor in the Lester Pollack Room. A valid ID and RSVP is required for admission to this event. Please RSVP to Audrey Watne at  This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it This event will be followed by a brief reception.

Highbone Theatre

For those of you wondering what's up with the next volume of Dungeon Quest, well, Joe Daly has detoured onto another project for a while: a new graphic novel, Highbone Theatre, which he's unveiling, chunk by chunk, as a webcomic! And there's some pretty big chunks posted so far. Expect the same blend of neck-spasming action, awkward dude interactions, and flaccid penises you love Dungeon Quest for! There's also a Facebook page for you to like for updates and such.
