Event Wrap-up: PANTHOR LAUNCH!

panthor_bannerCreator, artist, and the romantic visionary behind Stroke of Genius and Cum Lung, Aaron Manczyk lives more like an action movie star than a typical cartoonist. His approach to the medium draws in equal measure on the bullheaded vulgarity of Johnny Ryan and the atavistic braggadocio of Benjamin Marra, but Aaron (who has been writer and star of the Youtube sitcom Living with Friends for more than 4 years now,) also navigates the realm of performance with the same arrogant panache.
