Red Carpet & Costume Release Par-tay for HiChristina’s New Film!

HiChristina is ready to show you our movie! But of course it’s not quite as ordinary as that (this is HiChristina after all!) It’s not only the RELEASE PARTY for our new feature film, it’s also a COSTUME PARTY! No longer are giant blockbusters and franchises the only home of fan-dress-up, now YOU can dress up like a character a) you imagine may be in the movie, b) should be in a movie somewhere, or c) is in our movie for real!
Take a stroll through our "(w)hall of characters" where you can choose a character from the movie (pictured on the wall) and dress up like them (assisted by Christina of course)!!  Whether it’s with a wild wig, a pair of leggings, some sparkles or lame, or just a handfull of fluff, we’ve got you covered! 
In honor of how the film was made performers (or guests!) will be doing SPONTANEOUS THINGS, like rolling on the ground, or singing in French while standing on their head, all while you revel in the full length comedy of action romantic magical adventure!!  
For a special prize… go into the bathroom and come out with your clothes on backwards.

I LIKE YOU, but we love you. Tonight this night February 4th 2014

Please join us at Bergen Street Comics on Saturday, February 15th at 8pm for the launch of Michael DeForge’s darkly existential graphic novel Ant Colony! In just a few short years, DeForge’s singular, idiosyncratic style has made him an important new voice in alternative comics. Here, he will present a slideshow with a signing to follow. Ant Colony follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants: from its opening pages, DeForge immerses the reader in a world of false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers. On the surface, Ant Colony tells the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all-too-familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns – loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. DeForge’s striking visual sensibility – stark lines, dramatic color choices, and brilliant use of page and panel space – stands out in this volume.

For all of you NYCC attendees that would rather hit up a Brooklyn party than the comic crowd scene, here you go. 
You’re welcome.

For all of you NYCC attendees that would rather hit up a Brooklyn party than the comic crowd scene, here you go. 

You’re welcome.

It’s time for the fourth Pete’s Mini Zine Fest,
the fest-in-a-bar.

Our celebration of the duplicated arts promises a good time and a relaxing atmosphere, and is a great opportunity to really get to know our wonderful, talented tablers. Nurse a beer; read some zines.
Marguerite will be hosting a FREE comics workshop. If you’re interested in creating your own comics and don’t know where to start, this is the workshop for you.
I’ll be going over how to create comics–from the initial idea to finally getting it down on paper–and how to make your DIY books ultra faboo.
I’ll also talk about how basically any subject you choose can be made into a comic and do a little art demo.
At 5pm, meet at the stage area–once you enter Pete’s, just keep walking straight and bam, you’re on a stage.
FREE! Just show up!
