Want to Watch a Scam Artist in Action?

Many times at conventions there are events called "Drink and Draws." These typically involve an artist (or group of artists) at a local bar, drinking and drawing, all while fans and interested parties can join in on the festivities. The event is live, but it typically involves the artists freestyling somewhat; very rarely are they illustrating works for publishing. Some drawing events have grander stakes, such as Joe Mulvey's plan to illustrate the last page of series Scam live.

"Some animals belong in a zoo," said new ComixTribe public relations manager Sam LeBas. "And Joe Mulvey is the kind of animal who should be observed doing what he does best. Just stay behind the glass, and don't feed the artist, kiddies."

On Friday, June 7th in New York City, beginning at 4:00 PM EST, Mulvey will begin penciling the 138th and final page of his first ComixTribe miniseries, before your very eyes. The live art event is expected to last until 7:00 PM and is part of Carmine Street Comics’ Storefront Artists Program, an ongoing effort to engage comic readers with comic creators. Carmine Street Comics is located between Seventh Avenue and Bleecker in the West Village.

"I can't wait for everyone to see the finale of SCAM! It sets up the entire universe for much bigger things to come. Thanks to everyone who's given SCAM, ComixTribe and myself a chance," said Mulvey. "I'm also in deep with loan sharks, so I needed to finish this up before they take my hands."

ComixTribe announced last week that the series finale will be a double-sized issue at a standard $3.99 cover price. The finale will feature two variant covers: one featuring a flip cover for Issues #4 and #5 and another featuring a stunning wrap-around cover by Mulvey. Carmine Street Comics fans will be among the first to see those new covers.
