Join us for the annual Easter Sunday KGB Comix Night, a free night of live comics readings. Five local cartoonists will offer slideshow readings that are sure to entertain, bewilder, and amuse.
KGB Comix Night is more than just a night of free entertainment—we also have a fun raffle with awesome prizes! A $5 donation will get you a raffle ticket. Raffle proceeds are split between the hosts and readers.
Under (partially) new management!

Ben Urkowitz’s comics are a psychedelic, zipatoned, perverse, Jansson-esque, nightmarescape in the best possible way. His work runs the gamut from abstracted and theoretical to hilariously human. Often striking its strongest notes somewhere in between; such as his darkly humorous “Real Rap” series or the pointed “Big Busty Psychic Celeb Votes Satan”.
