Newave Anthology Release Party and ZAPP Benefit!

Check out this announcement!  (I'll be there for the comics jam...):

This Saturday, January 30, 6-9 p.m., Fantagraphics Books presents the release party for "NEWAVE! Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s," a new book compiling self-published mini-comics of the '70s and '80s, at their store in Georgetown.

For every copy of "NEWAVE!" sold at the party, Michael Dowers, the book's editor, will donate $3 to ZAPP.

The "NEWAVE!" release party features original artwork from Jaimie Alder, Jim Blanchard, Wayne Gibson, Wayno, Steve Willis, Dennis Worden and XNO. Dowers, mini-comics creator and former editor of Starhead Comix and Fantagraphics Books, will be creating and distributing a mini-comic on site. Plus, an allstar comics jam with music by hot Seattle indie rockers Iji.
