New Comic Series Delia Awesome Launches @ the Hideout

1395381_199602003558519_1902217580_n.jpgDelia Awesome is a disappointment to her parents, a puzzle to her friends, and a problem for her boss...The super powers just make things worse.*

Sound like your kinda gal? If so, check out the launch party for the new Delia Awesome comic book series by writer/illustrator Michael Schneider and editor Jane Huh on Wednesday, October 23 at 6pm at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave. DJ Phantom Power will perform a set.

The location of this party is key, seeing as Delia's "journey as a hesitant, mildly neurotic superhero" begins at the Hideout, and continues at various music venues across Chicago.

Issue #1 of the comic, described as homage to photocopied zines and underground comics by an artist who claims John Waters, Peter Bagge, and R. Crumb as his inspiration, will be available at the event; but if you can't make it, pick up a copy at Graham Cracker Comics, saki, G-Mart Comic, or more locations listed here. Or, you can view it online.
