For quite a while now, if you’ve been paying attention, it’s been clear that comic books and comic strips are far from being kid’s stuff. The initially undervalued medium presents a wealth of possibility to writers who want to tell their stories with visuals and to illustrators who know that a few well-chosen words can make a narrative more clear. In “Strip Tease” (comic strip, that is … get your mind out of the gutter), we have an exciting chance to see new work from more than 10 local artists (Regina Morales, Isabel Ann Castro, Rigo Ortiz and Sergio Mata, to name a few) with quite distinct styles and artistic backgrounds. It’s a fine opportunity to check in on the limits and possibilities of this unique narrative format, with folks operating/experimenting at the cutting edge of their disciplines.
