When he isn't getting pushed down hills behind Comic-Con, Portland's Matt Fraction is one of the best comics writers around. And tonight he's having a party at Floating World Comics (400 NW Couch) to mark the release of the trade paperback of Casanova: Avaritia—the final volume in his mind-bending, ridiculously beloved, super-spy comic Casanova, and a book that also boasts some fantastic art by one of my favorite artists, Gabriel Ba. In other words, Avaritia, like the previous Casanovas, is pretty much a must-read, so there you go: Do that tonight! Trans-dimensional hijinx may or may not go down!

Casanova: Avaritia book release and signing, Wed July 11, 6-8 pm, Floating World Comics (400 NW Couch)

(OH, AND WHAT'S THIS? Matt Fraction is also going to be a guest at the next Comics Underground—along with Ben Dewey, Suzette Smith, and Sara Ryan? My, what an amazing event that will be! Those people behind this Comics Underground event certainly outdid themselves this time!)
