Chicago Comics Goodness -- This comes from once-and-future Galaxy rock star Nick Capetillo:

I just wanted to drop and line and hopefull grab a blog plug (if its not too
oft-putting) for a big comix event going on in Chicago starting today. The
Chicago Cultural Center is opening up a new exhibit entitled Raw, Boiled &
Cooked (inspired by Art Spielgelman's Raw Magazine) showcasing the finest
artists in comix. Everyone from Rick Altergott to Jim Woodring is being
represented by original artworks, sculptures, prints and more. I got a
chance to look at it it earlier today and I can you that it is a thing of
beauty; when you walk into a room and see an 8 foot tall Frank on one side
and 10 foot tall panel reproduction of Jimmy Corrigan on the other (with
Dave Cooper toys and Bill Griffith original comic strip art between them)
you know you've entered a truely holy place.

The exhibit will run until the first week of October so people have plenty
of time to check it out. By no small coincidence there's a big comic
convention going on here next weekend so I implore anyone making their way
to Chicago for the Con to hop on the "L" train (which is adjacent to O'Hare
Airport and a block from the Convention center) and make their way to
downtown Chicago (Washington stop) and get to the Cultural Center for and
experience that they'll never get at WizardWorld in a million years.

And did I mention that admission is absolutely free?

You can read more about it here.

Sounds like a blast, Nick. Thanks for sending this along.
