Diani & Devine present an evening of Bluegrass, whiskey, and classic literature altered to include robots featuring LIVE MUSIC from The Dustbowl Cavliers, FREE COCKTAILS courtesy of Big Bottom Whiskey, robot art from Day of the Robot, and Luna the World’s First Personal Robot! Special Appearance by the The Wien Truck.

Best of all? This event is FREE! Come on down Monday, December 19th at 8pm!
Huckleberry Finn was a boy with no home. Jim was a runaway robot in search of freedom. Together they embarked upon the adventure of a lifetime.
Mark Twain’s classic text has been a lightning rod for controversy since its first publication in the late nineteenth century, and has consistently been one of the most banned books in schools and libraries across the United States. In an effort to fight the censorship of this iconic piece of literature, editors Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine have removed every instance of the word “n-word” and replaced it with the word “robot.” Complete and unabridged (except for bits here and there), with E.W. Kemble’s original illustrations painstakingly altered by artist Denise Devine to include robots, this bold new edition makes Twain’s timeless work accessible to a whole new generation of readers … without being bogged down by what he wanted to say about racism.
(Get a free peek at the book if you go here!)

“Meltdown Comics is one of the true champions of indie-art culture, and I couldn’t be happier that they’re hosting Godkiller’s first public screening,” said Matt Pizzolo, Godkiller’s writer-director. “When I first visited LA and wondered if I could actually move here, I wound up at Meltdown and decided ‘okay, I can live in any town with a comic shop this awesome.’ Meltdown represents the bleeding edge of media, so the fact they’re supporting Godkiller is incredibly exciting to me.”

A post-nuke odyssey about a young boy venturing into the savage land of Outer City on a quest to find a new heart for his dying sister, Godkiller was directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo based on the graphic novel he created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker.

The dark, unrated film pioneers a new style of animation called ‘illustrated-films,’ developed by Pizzolo with his producing partner, Emmy-winner Brian Giberson. Utilizing the comic book’s sequential illustrations, the filmmakers add 3-D cgi, motion graphics, elaborate sound design, and dramatic voice performances for an edgy, sophisticated, intricately detailed new form of animation. Danielle Harris told iF Magazine “its more like moving art than animation, with very good writing.” Upcoming illustrated-films from Halo-8 include Tim Seeley’s Loaded Bible and James Farr’s Xombie: Reanimated.

The trailer is posted on Halo8.tv and available for easy embedding.
