Great Lakes Brewery Comic Book Heritage Night

If you're from Cleveland, you love Great Lakes Brewing Company. You know the name of every beer by heart, line up around the block for Christmas Ale (Ooo christmas aleeee), and drive by Ohio City with your windows down just to get a whiff of the malt-y air. Clevelanders take a huge amount pride in everything from our city and our beer is no exception. And, as the birthplace of Superman, we also love comics.

That's how we found ourselves in GLB's tasting room yesterday for night honoring a perfect Cleveland match: Beer and Comics. To celebrate the release of the new Superman-esq Pub Brew: Truth, Justice, and the American Ale, the brewery invited us and our good friends at Carol and John's Comics to bring in some nerdy goodness. Suffice to say, it was a pretty fantastic night.

Our job last night was to draw on comic book covers for the guests of the event. We were just a little bit excited about this, as superhero drawing is one of our most favorite activities. What made it especially cool was that the amazing party nerds gave us some very creative prompts. 

Here are a few of my favorite covers that I drew last night. Expect to see some more awesome from the other monsters every day this week.

Thanks again to Carol and John's and Great Lakes Brewery for having us out! It was a great night. Everyone there was super nice, having a wonderful time and we can't wait to do it again!
