Representin’ the ZFH

30 Apr

A nice picture of the Zine Fest Houston Compilation cover (illustrated by Gabriel Dieter) appears in Robert Boyd’s review of Nighthawks at the Last Supper. Nighthawks at the Last Supper was a minature convention organized as a performance piece within the UH MFA Thesis Exhibition at DiverseWorks.

Closson, who created a graphic novel called Lorica for his thesis and serialized it in self published booklets, was an exhibitor at last year’s Zine Fest. Several Zine Fest veterans (including Jarrod Perez, Gabriel Dieter, shane patrick boyle, Edwin Johston Mark Nasso and Jason Poland) participated as exhibitors in Closson’s performance piece. Christopher Cascio, who did the centerfold for the Zine Fest compilation, was also in attendance.
