KGB Comix Recap

Whatta night! We had a full house at the Post-Thanksgiving Comix Reading, thanks to our regulars and a mention on the Skint. I was too preoccupied this year to take photos, as I was hosting AND reading. But here are some images from the slideshow.

The big news of the night was that Nick Sumida brought down the house with his reading of New Voicemails. Chandler Moses recorded the audio, and later Nick added video and uploaded it to Youtube. Then Buzzfeed posted it! They didn’t mention the KGB Comix Night by name (darn it!) but it was the biggest press the show ever got.

Jesse Reklaw read from his memoir Couch Tag, which was just released last week. This panel in particular got some laughs.

Aaron Cockle did his first comic reading ever. He chose Exit Interview, my favorite of his short stories.

Emily Flake read some of her rejected New Yorker cartoons, and a longer piece on motherhood.


I read my comic Bad Girls, and a excerpt from my work-in-progress, Twin Bed. More on that later.
