INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS Premieres Live Graphic Novel This Weekend!

Austin’s favorite sci-fi radio thriller comes to life in a entirely new form! Three actors once again portray a variety of characters as sludge-monsters from the Planet Zygon invade the earth. Only this time, their adventures are accompanied by more 1200 drawings by graphic wizard Tim Doyle, projected on the Long Center’s huge screen and accompanied by Graham Reynolds’ original score.

Friday, Sept. 3 and Saturday, Sept. 4 at 8 PM at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

If you didn’t happen upon performances of selected chapters of THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS before screenings at South Lamar, let me clue you in to all the hub-bub. THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS is a graphic novel serial performed LIVE. Three actors perform dozens of characters. One Foley artist creates hundreds of sounds. One keyboardist plays thousands of notes. All while more than 1000 hand-drawn full-color high-resolution mind-blowing multiply-hyphenated comic-book images blast from the screen.

“When a Pulitzer-winning reporter and her intrepid assistant stumble across a mysterious map, they uncover what might just be the story of the century: an invasion of sludge-monsters from the planet Zygon. With the help of a librarian from Flagstaff AZ, our heroes race against time to defeat Mysterion the Magnificent and his minions before they destroy Earth forever.”

You've seen chapters at various shows at the Drafthouse over the past year. Now see it all come together for a glorious performance at the Long Center this weekend. Don't Miss It!
