East Nashville’s art snob-free zone and innovative event space Boheme Collectif is at it again with another mixmaster combination of high art and pop culture pizzazz. This time they’ve focused their X-ray vision on the modern pantheon of funny-book heroes and villains with the first Comixtravaganza! It’s an event that sets the bar higher than simple fanboy obsession, with no corresponding decrease in geekiness. The event will feature an all-star squadron of local comic book professionals, including Stephen L. Fox, Sam Payne, Janet Lee, Eric Powell and Michael Lapinski, who will be showing original art along with appearing on four workshop panels on toiling in the comics field. Then, at 8 p.m., the event transforms into a superhero-themed cosplay prom and party with live entertainment. Advance tickets are available through bohemecollectif.com.
