Comics Quickfire is a fast-paced game show where volunteers are paired off with (or against) professional cartoonists in a series of fun-filled drawing challenges! Audience members provide suggestions and add to the creation of totally improvised epic drawings! Hosted by Dave Roman, Comics Quickfire has entertained large crowds at conventions and book festivals across the country and featured some of the biggest names in comics and kid lit.
