Friday! Time for another 'Tru-ish' tale of Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#53)! This week: Neal Cassady or... ANOTHER CASE OF SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION!
Neal Cassady is a Beat Icon and Mile High native... but I'll let the comic tell you about him if you are L7 on the details (oh yeah... I went there.) Even better... Check out the new documentary 'Neal Cassady: The Denver Years' (done by the incredible Heather Dalton... who also helped me with this strip...) which is premiering June 26th (next Thursday at 7PM!) at the SIE Film Center in scenic City Park-ish East Colfax. Be there for all the historic docu-drama hijinx. It's a 'real cool scene' as the kids all say... (wait, they don't say that anymore??)
Plus... My artwork is featured in the film!!!! In many places... and animated!!! SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION!!! It will be magical if you like that sort of thing. Be there or... well, you know the rest!
Originally from Philadelphia and Boston (where he picked up the annoying habit of using "wicked" as an adjective), Karl Christian is the writer/artist of such comics as 'Angst Boy Comics', 'Sturm und Drang', 'Schadenfreude', as well as 'Byron' for SLG Publishing and other comical tragedies and drunken accounts for Modern Drunkard Magazine. Karl now lives in Denver, CO with a large collection of tiki mugs and a pair of cats that stalk him for food. He also hates writing about himself in the third person. It's creepy.
