'Nemesis': Comic books on stage
This is so cool. We wrote some about it in our latest Random Notes.
Comic fans will enjoy the “live graphic novel” production of The Intergalactic Nemesis: Book One: Target Earth set for Friday, Oct. 12.
This all-ages show, created by Jason Neulander, features more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color comic book images projected onto a screen while three actors, a sound effects artist and a keyboardist perform voices, music and sounds effect on stage.
Not unlike an old-time radio show, but not on the radio.
Need more info? Still unconvinced or uncertain? Dig this clip from the Conan O'Brien Show. (In fact, those of you who are familiar with our videos will wonder whether The Beat could have done better than Conan. We can say without equivocation that we might have or we might not have.)
