Happening this afternoon at All Star Comics Melbourne:
Milk Shadow Books, Squishface Studio, NonCanonical Comic Podcast and All Star Comics present the YOU STINK AND I DON’T - VOLUME 1 AND 2 LAUNCH.
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 medicine, pop music, sport, organised religion, and other unimportant things.
From 4 – 5pm there will also be a Q & A with Hutcho by the crème of comics podcasting, the fellas from NonCanonical!
