Out of the Gutter

I Hate Comics Forever

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Tonight, I'm giving a talk (with Shawn Atkins) at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's Main (Oakland) location at the Out of the Gutter graphic novel discussion group -- it's at 6:30 PM and it's called Using Every Piece of the Cow.

I took an hour out of my day today to whip up a special Out of the Gutter EXCLUSIVE two-page comic called "I Hate Comics Forever." I'm going to raffle off the one-of-a-kind only-one-on-paper original art of the comic tonight at the talk. So get yer butts out to library if you wanna take this sucker home!!!

Time-traveling fake-eye-patch-wearing Nick stops present Nick from giving up on comics? CLASSIC!

SPACE 2011, Carnegie Library Talk, Passage

Friday, March 18th, 2011

from Passage by Nick Marino

- This weekend I'll be at SPACE in Columbus selling my self-published comics (and comic cards!). One such comic is a brand new offering from me, a mini-comic called Passage. I'm not gonna say anything else about it right now except that it's a raw sci-fi tale with a twist.

- The day after SPACE (Monday, March 21st), I'll be back in Pittsburgh but still promoting my comics when I give a talk in the teen/comics section of the Carnegie Library in Oakland at 6:30 PM. The graphic novel discussion group is called Out of the Gutter, and my talk (with Shawn Atkins) is called Using Every Piece of the Cow (DISCLAIMER: no cows were harmed in the making of this lecture). We'll be sharing our work, discussing our process, and tap dancing to Steal Away by Robbie Dupree (DISCLAIMER: I'm lying about the tap dancing).
