Daniel Clowes Eightball 18 Cover


MightyVille is hosting our next Nerds Nite Out this Friday, July 27! This time we are headed to Oakland, CA for the Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes panel & exhibit at the Oakland Museum of California. Daniel Clowes (Ghost World; Art School Confidential) and Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan; Acme Novelty Library) will be on the panel discussing their careers, the state of comics today, and the relationship of comics to fine art. Also at the museum is the Modern Cartoonist exhibit - the first major survey of Clowes' artwork! If you're a fellow nerd who loves Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware, you don't want to miss this Nerds Nite Out!

Location:  Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) - 1000 Oak Street, Oakland CA 94607

Date & time: Friday, July 27 from 5:30 - 9:30pm (& beyond...)

Admission:  $6 entry to museum includes panel, exhibit and access to the rest of the museum


The panel is being held inside the museum in the James Moore Theater, and Sommer K and Joe Kach of MightyVille will be outside the theater at 5:30pm to kick off Nerds Nite Out and meet up with you and other MightyVille attendees. Seating in the theater is limited and available on a first-come, first served basis, so the museum recommends we get in line early to ensure entry. They are expecting a full house for this event, and we want to get seats! The theater doors open at 6:30pm, and the panel will be held from 7:00 - 8:30pm.

After the panel, we'll hurry on over to the Modern Cartoonist exhibit to make sure we get a chance to see all of the amazing Daniel Clowes artwork on display. Then, from 9:00 - 10:00pm, Clowes and Ware will be signing books in the museum store. They only allow books purchased in the OMCA Store to be signed, and only one book per customer, so unfortunately no bringing along your favorite copy of Ghost World or Jimmy Corrigan. But this should be a good opportunity to meet these two creators and get a signed copy of one book for each of them if purchased at the museum.

We hope you'll share this exciting event with us. If you plan to join us for this Nerds Nite Out, please let us know to look out for you by This email address is being protected from spambots.
