Cinefamily explores the art of underground comic books in "Adventurous Cartoonists & Far-Out Comics," an afternoon of book signings, talks and film hosted by Dan Nadel, author of the new anthology Art in Time: Unknown Comic Book Adventures, 1940-1980. Johnny Ryan (Angry Youth Comix) interviews Real Deal author Lawrence Hubbard, a.k.a. Rawdog; Sharon Rudahl, John Thompson and Barbara "Willy" Mendes participate in a panel discussion on subversive works of the 1960s; and the ever-awesome Jamie Hernandez, co-creator of groundbreaking alt-comic Love & Rockets, screens Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1949 A Letter To Three Wives, about a woman who informs her friends by mail that she's run off with one of their husbands (but which one?). Discussion with Hernandez follows, moderated by cartoonist Sammy Harkham. Fun fact: Bauhaus spin-off band Love & Rockets named themselves after the Hernandez Bros' book.
