Happening this afternoon at All Star Comics Melbourne:

For 20 years Ben ‘Hutcho’ Hutchings has been creating one of Australia's best funnybook comic series, You Stink and i Don't. From the Woden Bus Interchange to the beautiful streets of Brunswick, and over 10 issues (plus lots of other mini comics collected here!), Hutcho has been smashing the piss out of all conventions such as growing up, other comics, modern medi
cine, pop music, sport, organised religion, and other unimportant things.

From 4 Р5pm there will also be a Q & A with Hutcho by the cr̬me of comics podcasting, the fellas from NonCanonical!
