Emerson Avenue Salonlines Proudly Presents
a live YouTube Broadcast…

“Emotionally True”

The Comics Art of Dean Haspiel

Emmy Award-winning artist Dean Haspiel will take us on a tour of his semi-autobiographical comics, which include NYC vignettes, the last romantic antihero, and a super-thief forced to become a superhero. Dean has written and drawn stories for Marvel, DC, and Archie comics, collaborated on graphic novels with Jonathan Ames and Harvey Pekar, and is also a playwright and Yaddo fellow.

We are delighted with how many of you have come along with us on our venture into the “virtual” online world (here’s to virtue!)  We hope to continue to host and broadcast Salonlines almost every Sunday evening at 7:30 until this dreaded situation eases.

This is the new “normal” Emerson Avenue Salonline — the performance is obviously free but you can send Dean a donation via PayPal to my personal email, or by mailing a check to Bill Ewing, 1508 Emerson Avenue, Mclean VA 22101.

Our artists REALLY appreciate your show of support!


We (Jackie & Bill) will MATCH ALL DONATIONS 100%!!

please give generously!

“What about food”, you say? Are you imagining that strangers might come together — within inches of one another — and share food? Not wearing mask or gloves? Who can imagine doing such a thing!
