KC's comic connoisseurs make good company.

8/29 & 8/31 Hypothetically speaking, if we were lacking friends (or just looking for new ones), we'd check out the Comic Creators' Network -- they seem to spend a lot of time together, fueled by caffeine in hip midtown and downtown coffee shops. During the monthly meeting at Crave Café (1615 West 39th Street) at 2 p.m. Saturday, blocked artists can find collaborators, illustrators can show off their latest work, and social outcasts can wander in under the pretense of liking comics. Then, at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Coffee Girls (310 Southwest Boulevard), the group's graphic novel club discusses this month's selection, Summer Blond. What's more, last-ditch team efforts are being made for the Show and Tell 3 (a CCN anthology) cover submission deadline. Membership dues are $25 -- entirely justifiable for the purchase of a social life. Call 816-471-2322. -- Annie Fischer

Can formation affect faith?

SUN 8/29
The Sacred Spaces, Urban Places tour examines how architecture can affect religious experience. "We did a tour last year of churches that were strictly within the downtown district," says Milan Hanson, an architect for J. Christopher Gale and Company and a member of the American Institute of Architects. "This year is the beginning of the next tier as it moves out." This year's tour stops at two very different structures -- Redemptorist Catholic Church (3333 Broadway) and Independence Boulevard Christian Church (606 Gladstone Boulevard) -- for a glimpse at Kansas City places of worship. Tour guides, including Hanson, discuss the histories, original settings and congregations of these churches. With departures from either church, the tour runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday; tickets are $10. Call 816-221-3485 for details. -- Fischer

Ooh La La

WED 9/1
Kansas Citians can get a multicultural fix from Rockhurst University's September foreign film series. It includes selections from France, Spain (the Oscar-winning Talk to Her), Senegal and Cuba, and there's a discussion after each screening. Wednesday's selection, the French export Tous les Matins du Monde, is the story of a late-17th-century viola player who becomes reclusive after his wife dies, caring only about his two young daughters and his music. It screens at 7 p.m. in Rockhurst's Mabee Theater (Sedgwick Hall, 1100 Rockhurst Road) as the only free installment in the series. Call 816-501-4307. -- Christopher Blunk
