    Danielle Corsetto, creator of the webcomic Girls With Slingshots, appears on Tuesday February 17, 2015 **Monday February 23, 2015** at 4:30 PM.

    A story about twenty-something BFFs Jamie and Hazel, Girls With Slingshots has an expansive cast of their friends, including a talking cactus and a ghost cat (among other oddities). The slice-of-life dramedy revolves around topics of love, booze, sex, relationships, careers, living with your parents, and the worthlessness of an English degree. Corsetto also has written three Adventure Time OGNs published by BOOM! Studios, and created the strip “The New Adventures of Bat Boy” for the Weekly World News. She lives in the charming town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia with two cats and a rotating cast of vagrant friends in a big 18th century house filled with houseplants and containers of loose tea.

    C. BRADFORD GORBY added to Show!
    Make sure you stop by and check out his amazing art

    Illustrator C. Bradford Gorby started his art career in the third grade, selling watercolors to his neighbors – until his parents made him return the money. Not deterred by this setback, he kept drawing and actually found his parents quite encouraging in his artistic pursuits, introducing
    him to the pin-up art of Alberto Vargas .Eventually his enthusiasm for
    drawing pretty girls lured him to Central Florida, giving up his day job in computer graphics for Post Production Services in Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent 10 years illustrating FEMFORCE for Bill Black’s AC Comics, as well as slipping in a few other companies when time allowed, Image Comics, Todd McFarlane Productions, DC Comics and continued his work as a sculptor for Miniature Wargaming that he began in 1982 with Ral Partha Ent., Tag Industries, and Alderac Entertainment. He retired from art as a profession for 10 years and got a “real job” which only fueled his artistic drive, “at the end of my shift I would return home and create”. I am simply driven to draw, paint, sculpt, whether I am working professionally or not. It’s what I do. His full time job managing a liquor store lead to a chance meeting of a fan of his comic book work and that turned into a new job at Walt Disney World, where he spent 5 years as a Theme Produc-tion Specialist. He assisted in the creation of the character icons at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, as well as helping ensure that Cinderella and Princess Aurora always looked their loveliest outside of The World of Disney Store at Downtown Disney. Currently he is a self- employed freelance artist at C.Bradford Gorby Studio and working on a graphic novel with writers Michael Cucka and John Salimbene entitled WEBB.

    First time at The D.C.&C.S.
