Comics authors at MCAD

Thursday evening MCAD and Rain Taxi magazine hosted a lecture/Q&A with authors Douglas Wolk and Austin Grossman. Wolk is the author of "Reading Comics," an insightful look at the current state of the comics medium. Grossman's book is "Soon I Will Be Invincible," a witty literary take on the superhero genre. Both authors were interviewed by MCAD instructor (and comic book artist/inker) Barb Schulz (see pic -- from L to R: Grossman, Schulz, Wolk). The event was well attended, with several Twin Cities cartoonists (Zak Sally, Zander Cannon) among the crowd.
