In celebration of Feathertale’s first full-length comics issue, This is Not a Reading Series partners with the creators of Feathertale to bring you a cabaret performance that will test this country’s obscenity laws and give insight into how a professional cartoonist actually works. Three Feathertale illustrators will take to the stage and create a comic strip before your very eyes in the Comic Idol showdown with host, Toronto actor and Improv Blackbelt, Ian Busher. Feathertale will profile the works of Feathertale artists like Graham Roumieu and JamieTucker and anxious fans will have a one-time only chance to pick up a copy of Review #8 before its fall release. Feathertale editor Brett Popplewell and regular Feathertale poets and writers will perform a few of the short stories and poems from the Review’s forthcoming memoirs issue. Half of what is to be performed on stage will be based in reality. Feathertale magazines, t-shirts and art will all be for sale at the launch. As if that weren’t enough, Iain Marlow and the Subordinate Clause will cap off the evening with a jazz performance that’s sure to bring a tear to your legs.
