Between the Panels SPECIAL EVENT!

This Week - Live from Mesa Public Library in Los Alamos!

The Gestalt of It All (History, Monsters, and Comics)

In order to contend with The Gestalt of It All we will discuss the historical development of comics, what monsters have to do with that history, and tackle the personal monsters that try to limit a creator's output.

There will be talk, there will be pictures, and yes, you will be creating comics, battling demons, and slaying dragons!

This week we are streaming LIVE from Mesa Public Library in Los Alamos! Join us ONLINE or IN-PERSON! This is a FREE EVENT!
