Comic book artist/writer Jim Woodring is coming to Olympia this weekend for appearances at the Danger Room and the Olympia Timberland Regional Library.

Woodring’s comics include the haunting, surreal works The Frank Book, Congress Of The Animals, Weathercraft, and his most recent, Fran. He also had runs as writer on Dark Horse’s Aliens and Jabba The Hutt comics series. Woodring has received the Eisner, Harvey, and Inkpot awards, and in 2010 was the recipient of The Stranger’s Genius Of Literature Award.

Jim will appear at the Danger Room, 201 W. Fourth Ave., from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, where he’ll be interviewed, then sign copies of his books and chat with fans.

Then at 7 p.m., he'll be at the library, 313 Eighth Ave. SE, for a live drawing demonstration using his invention Nibbus Maximus, a 7-foot-long ink-nib pen. That will be followed by a question and answer session. Copies of his books will be available for purchase and to get signed. The library event will run until 8:30 pm.
