Comic Sketch Duel: Chrissie Zullo vs Christopher Uminga

Tune on April 30 for an epic battle.

While you’re eagerly awaiting ticket on sale dates for 2021’s physical shows, we’ve got entertainment that doesn’t require you to wear real clothes. Comic Sketch Duels are a cornerstone of our physical shows, and the premise is simple: two comic artists enter the THUNDERDOME, but only one leaves alive.

What is a Sketch Duel?

Two comic artists take prompts from fans: Batman riding a water buffalo in space, Spider-Pig hopping on goombas, and illustrate them. Fans decide the winners, and a few lucky fans leave with unique pieces of art and some really good stories.
