Staple! In Motion

'Intergalactic Nemesis', 'Sundown' trailers

If you missed day one of Staple! the independent media expo, don't worry. There's still day two, with a special first peak at chapter one of volume two of live-action graphic novel The Intergalactic Nemesis.

This is not quite the first time Austinites have had a chance to see what happens next in this two-fisted, multi-media extravaganza. Director/producer Jason Neulander gave the audience leaving the third performance of volume one at the Long Center a quick tease on the way out (watch the video above), but he was positively giddy today about being able what is in store for Sunday. Don't forget, this local best-kept secret hits the road for a national tour this fall, so catch it before the world knows what a Zygonian is.

That's not the only attraction on the agenda. The Chronicle's own Wayne Alan Brenner will be moderating a Q&A with Alex Robinson (Box Office Poison, Too Cool to Be Forgotten) after a talk with Scary Godmother creator Jill Thompson There are also two dealer rooms packed with local artists (including Neulander's long-time collaborator Tim Doyle), visiting small press guests like Monica Gallagher (creator of roller derby comic Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five), and big names like James O'Barr.

The creator of The Crow helps explain why this is called a media expo and not a comic convention: His latest work, Sundown is a piece of digital storytelling. He described it as a "Gothic Spaghetti Western. … It very much has a Sergio Leone look to it, so I'm painting it all in these wide Panavision panels." The first chapter, 'White Birch,' will be available through Motionworks Entertainment in March for Android, iPhone and iPad.

Staple! The Independent Media Expo, March 6. noon-6pm. $10. The Marchesa Hall & Theatre, 6406 N. I-35 #3100.
