‘Tis the season. Once again it is time for the New York Comic Con. Unfortunately this year we will not have our usual Hip-Hop and comic books panel. Instead we will conduct the conversation at an outside venue. The good news is it’s going to be even more awesome than ever.
So here’s the deal!
On Saturday October 12th at the Nuyorican Cafe, at 8pm, I will be part of the “Hip-Hop & Comics: Cultures Combining” discussion, with an incredible line-up of comic creators and Hip-Hop legends that will shed light on the ways Hip-Hop and comics have inspired each other, give historical perspective on common elements and influences, and showcase new and upcoming projects. Complimentary cocktails will be provided until 9pm, and at 9:30, a stellar assortment of live musicians and DJs will take the stage with sets tailored to reflect the themes of the evening’s programming: inclusion, diversity, and innate funkiness. Admission is $25; New York Comic-Con badge holders will again receive a drink ticket with paid admission. – See more at: http://www.depthoffieldmagazine.com/2013/10/01/depth-of-field-presents-vanishing-points-two-nights-of-comic-centric-programming/#sthash.4Q3MWNC2.dpuf
