Annie Mok debuts SCREENTESTS w/the crew

January 17, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

West Philly-based cartoonist Annie Mok reads from Screentests, her most fully-realized work to date. Annie’s comics are by turns quiet, raucous, funny, and sad, and always clear-eyed and nuanced.

“These stories, which could be incredibly heartbreaking with no relief, instead give the reader hope.” – Mey Rude, Autostraddle

She’s joined by the incredible creators Ras Mashramani (metropolarity.net), R.Phillips (AfroFuturistAffair.com), and Alex*Laser Life (theafterv3rse.tumblr.com), of the Philly-based queer sci-fi crew Metropolarity; O. Horvath (Spurt of Blood), “hysterical cartoonist / pvd”; and Khristina Acosta of the Philly/NJ-based PoC-only zine distro No Shame Distro (facebook.com/noshamedistro), reading from her zine The Birthday Party.

A Q&A and signing will follow the readings.

Annie’s work can be found at www.cargocollective.com/heyanniemok, http://heyanniemok.tumblr.com, and @HeyAnnieMok on twitter.

Please note that some stories read at the event may be triggering.
