An Evening of Bacchanalian Delights

In a perfect world there would be people reading comics that even the Journalistas and Comics Reporters haven’t heard of, comics dedicated to quietly expanding the reach of sequential art with concepts and subjects you’d never expect to see on the traditional comic book spinner rack.

And there are.

Take Corked: The Comic, for example. Did you know there’s a wine-industry webcomic devoted to the world winemaking, the science of Zymology, the blending of cuvées, and the art of Oenology that quite literally is distributed in mini-comic form inside cases of award-winning Cabernets and Chardonnays? That’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?

You know me, of course I had to become friends with these amazing avant-garde comic creators!

So I’m thrilled to announce that the Isotope’s first event of 2011 is truly one of epicurean delights, a vinification celebration with the wine-and-comic makers Francis Sanders and David Griffin in honor of wine industry webcomic Corked: The Comic collected in a sexy softcover book for the first time.

We’re throwing this event in conjunction with Noir City, San Francisco’s fantastic festival of classic film noir. Because, truly, what could be better? Come, exercise your inner amateur sommelier with an evening of bacchanalian delights with us!
