John Porcellino's long running comic book, King Cat, is unique among semi-autobiographical indy comics in that it's evolved with its creator. In its early incarnation, King Cat was a classic example of '90s underground comics: sometimes angry, often funny and always indicative of its creator's interests (punk rock and Mark Trail were frequent touchstones). As Porcellino matured, so did his work. Explorations of Zen philosophy and honest portrayals of his own depression displaced these earlier concerns, reflecting the author's own growth and reassessment of what mattered. Tonight, John Porcellino visits Subterranean Books (6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-962-6100 or for a 7 p.m. slideshow, Q&A and book signing with his friend (and friend of the RFT) Tim Lane. Admission is free, but you're probably going to want to buy a book and get it signed.
