Few indie-comic creators reach iconic status, especially in a market dominated by tights, fights and commercial art. Fortunately for fans, cartoonist, musician and author John Porcellino
is hitting the road rock-and-roll style to promote his two decades masterminding King-Cat Comics. Brush up on comic-book history and get some art perspective tonight as Porcellino visits the Wonder Fair Art Gallery (803 Massachusetts in Lawrence, in the basement of the Casbah). Porcellino will present a slide show, talk with fans and sign his latest collected work, Map of My Heart
. Musical guest Patrick Porter will also be on hand performing his original acoustic tunes. The all-ages exhibit is open today from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, see wonderfair.com
or call 785-393-8525.
