The Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival Kicks Off FRIDAY!

Now in its sixth year, the Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival continues to bring to the city some of the most talented illustrators, comic book artists, cartoonists, and other great artists who work in visual mediums.

The festival's kicking off this year with a wild night of video game and geek culture-inspired bands over at Gus' Pub and Grill on Friday before the festival itself gets going on Sunday at Alderney Landing.

You can catch the glitched stylings of Wordburglar, who are releasing a new album at the shows, as well as Coins, The Bad Nintendos and whole lot more, including a bunch of special guests, prizes to give away, and a bonus level's worth of other surprises.

The night's nerdtastic festivities will kick off at 9pm and cover is $5 in advance or $7 at the door.
