If the history of the Olympia Comics Festival were told in funny book form, this year would be its splash panel.

Whether you know what that sentence meant or not, the folks at Danger Room Comics think this it's time you dropped by. "This is our 10th year," says Executive Director Chelsea Baker. "The stage show costs five dollars, and everything else is free." And if you think all those spandexed crime fighters are just a bit, well, immature, don't let that dissuade you. "We definitely gear our festival more toward alternative comics, not the superhero stuff." This year's festival is Saturday, May 21, in various locations in downtown Oly including Danger Room, Capitol Theater, the Olympia Center and Northern. It celebrates comic artists both locally and nationally. Previous guests include Peter Bagge (Hate), Jaime Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and Joe Sacco (Footnotes in Gaza).
