What's the highest perch from which one can spread the gospel of comic book love, and what bird perches there? The answer is: Comics Ambassador for the U.S. State Department. This is a real job held by Josh Elder, who has worked with DC Comics on one of its Superman titles, edited the Comics that Make Kids Smarter anthology and is the co-creator of nationally syndicated comic Mail Order Ninja. He'll be dropping in at Rediscovered Bookshop Friday, April 17, at 7 p.m. with Shivertown illustrator Shanae LaVelle. They're fixing to show Boiseans how to become involved in the comic book industry, and they'll also show attendees how to teach with graphic media. This is a do-not-miss event for comics enthusiasts.
