A+ B, Down, Down + Forward, Down + Back, Pencil, Ink, Fail. GAME OVER.
To celebrate Geek Girl Con and PAX Prime, Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery presents “GAME OVER.” This exhibition, opening on Saturday, August 11th, will feature the “box art” of some of our most famous graphic novels reimagined as failed videogame adaptations. No set of killer button combos or brute force could make these “graphic novels as games” playable, but Prison Pit for Nintendo 64 is even gorier than Mortal Kombat, and you can bemoan Pete Bagge's Hate-come-to-virtual-life as a CD-ROM. You can even draw your own failed videogame adaptation!
The opening on Saturday, August 11, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, coincides with the Georgetown Art Attack, which features visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts community.
