Meltdown Comics to Explore Death, Darkness in Paintings and Prints

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Meltdown Comics is generally an upbeat place, but starting tomorrow, they'll launch an exhibit of artwork that explores darkness, nightmares and the occult. The show highlights the work of artists whose paintings and drawings have appeared on black and death metal albums and in occult publications, as well as in galleries around the world.

Those artists include Antichrist Kramer, Peter Beste, Justin Barlett, Alexander 'Bad News' Brown, and Denis Forkas Kostromitin. The exhibit opens on November 2 and runs till November 18. We got a sneak preview of some of the work to be featured.
