Dan Nadel moderates a discussion with Brian Chippendale, author of If ‘n Oof, and C.F., author of Powr Mastrs 3 on November 18th from 07:00PM – 08:00PM.
Brian Chippendale, who also performs in Lightning Bolt and Black Pus, is the author of the graphic novels Maggots and Ninja. If and Oof are a Laurel and Hardy-esque duo who suffer a series of misadventures amidst Chippendale’s frenetic landscapes on their simple quest to just survive, eat, pay rent and avoid confrontation.
C.F., a contributor to Kramers Ergot, among other books, also performs under the monikers Kites and Daily Life. Powr Mastrs 3 continues C.F.’s Dune-like science fiction/fantasy epic featuring a misguided scientist and the race of beings he has created, who inhabit a surreal world called New China.
