Sean Bieri and Aaron Renier at the library. 

Tuesday, October 24, 6–8 p.m.
Central Library, U.S. Bank Room
801 S.W. 10th Avenue
Portland, OR 97205

Sean Bieri [Jape, Cool Jerk and Homo Gal, Business Chimp]
Sean Bieri has been called "the King of Minicomix." Fellow minicomics creator Pam Bliss calls Bieri "kind of a Jekyll and Hyde sort of guy: an amazingly skillful illustrator with a profound knowledge of the human face and figure, as well as a superb sense of graphic design. He also has the rudest, silliest, and just plain funniest sense of humor to be found anywhere." Sean's minicomics Cool Jerk and Homo Gal: Defenders of Detroit's Cass Corridor, Jape, Business Chimp, and his zines Modern Women and Judith are all widely acclaimed.

Aaron Renier [Papercutter, Spiral-Bound]
Comics creator Aaron Renier has been active in the Portland zine community for years. Some of his zine-related projects include poster designs for the Portland Zine Symposium and many events at Reading Frenzy. His first full-length all-ages graphic novel, Spiral-Bound, features anthropomorphic animals that might remind you of zinesters! One review says that "the underground newspaper Ana the rabbit is working for is a wish-fulfillment fantasy for zine and comics kids." He recently won an Eisner Award as a Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition.
