It's a good weekend for people who like comics.
First, Zeus Comics is having a 35% off Spring Break Madness sale through March 24th. This sale applies to all toys, statues, back issues, and graphic novels, basically everything except new release comics. These discounts are also available through their online store.
Second, on Friday, the DMA's Late Night Art Bytes session will focus on comic books and technology. It's an open mic event of sorts, a forum for tech savvy creators to share their work with peers and the community. Each presenter receives a few minutes to show their work and engage in a short question-and-answer session. The event coordinator Dan Langendorf invited me to share, along with Kristian Donaldson, Jake Ekiss, Matthew Warlick, and Vinh-Luan Luu. I don't know what I'm going to share yet. Maybe how it takes 1,000 emails to create ASTRONAUT DAD?
Dallas Museum of Art - Tech Lab, Center for Creative Connections

9:30 - 10:30 p.m
$10 General Admission (parking not included)
General admission is for the DMA's Late Night event (which includes Art Bytes). If you haven't been before, well worth it. However, I'd recommend not parking at the DMA. There's a parking garage nearby that is much cheaper. Or if you're willing to drive around to find a meter, and walk the few blocks, that would be the best way to go.
Third, on Saturday, Heroes4Heroes and ArtLoveMagic will host a night of live art and music at Poor David's Pub. Artists will have original art and prints for sale at the show. Featured artists will be Mitch Breitweiser (Captain America, Hulk, Fantastic Four) and Eric 'Ebas' Basaldua (Witchblade/Devi, Darkness, Tomb Raider).
