Hi friends, I'm taking off my Mercury hat but leaving on my Mercury fingers to tell you about tomorrow's installment of Comics Underground, the quarterly comics reading series that Erik Henriksen and I produce.

We've got a great show tomorrow night: Periscope Studio member Terry Blas will be presenting an excerpt from his charming webcomic Briar Hollow; cartoonist Kory Bing has a story from her long-running fantasy/adventure/coming-of-age comic Skin Deep (I dare you to start reading it and not lose half your afternoon); and Eisner-winner Greg Rucka will talk about his new—and totally badass—comic Lazarus (pictured above).

It's going to be a fun show, and if history has anything to say about it, it'll be packed—which is why we're offering ONE LUCKY WINNER a chance to win two tickets, and a pair of reserved seats at the Jack London. All you have to do is email me your name by 10 am tomorrow for your chance to win, with SPOT SAVED in the headline of your email. I'll notify the winner in the morning; everyone else, the show is tomorrow (Thursday) at the Jack London Bar, 529 SW 4th, underneath the Rialto; doors at 7:30 pm, show at 8ish, tickets $3-5 sliding scale.
