Comics join forces for drinking and inking tonight

The Denver Comix Social Club Plus Drinking is a casual tight-rope walk of drinking and doodling. Officially an opportunity for illustrators to get together and chat about their craft, it's also a chance to flex some creative muscles -- often the only muscles that comic artists have.

"It's like a support group for cartoonists," says Ted Intorcio, creator of the Head & Torso web comic series. "We get inspired by what everyone's doing. It's productive, but we also get to know each other." The group meets from 7 to 10:30 p.m. every Tuesday at Sub-Culture, a Capitol Hill sandwich shop, where the artists got to collaborate on a large mural now featured on the wall above the table where they gather each week.
