Out of Time: Time Travel and Other Phenomena

Sat, Nov 5, 2016 from 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm PDT
1200 SW Park Ave Portland, Oregon 97205

What would you do if you woke up one morning and found yourself exiled from the flow of time? If you found someone else who stops time when you orgasm? Or if you sent your friend to Manhattan in 980 instead if 1980? Or it turns out that angels exist, but they are more like demons, and it’s up to a punk in 1970s NYC and a stunt woman in 2013 Hollywood to stop them? John Wray (The Lost Time Accidents), Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals), Mo Daviau (Every Anxious Wave), and Robert Brockway (The Empty Ones) attempt to answer these questions and more. Moderated by Gigi Little (editor, City of Weird).
