Tonight: Slovenian cartoonists at Big Planet on U St

  • Today at 7 PM – 9 PM

  • Big Planet Comics of Washington DC
    1520 U St NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20009

  • Big Planet Comics is excited to present Izar Lunaček and Nejc Juren, all the way from Slovenia for their American comics residency, as they present their graphic novel Animal Noir!

    Animal Noir: Anthropomorphic animals like you've never seen them before. It's Chinatown meets Animal Farm. Private Investigator (and giraffe), Immanuel Diamond - Manny to his friends - has been asked by his uncle, an influential judge, to track down a prey fantasy movie. Adult films in this world are staged hunts where one animal eats another and the judge's wife starred in one that has been hidden (until now). Giraffe detectives, hippo mob members, prey-obsessed lions, street fighting elephants, and oppressed zebras are just part of this wild animal kingdom.

    They will also presenting a history of Slovenian comics at the Slovenian Embassy that weekend.
