He's a naughty fellow. In fact, he's certainly not too very mellow. And no, we're not talking about GWAR: Orgasmageddon co-writer Matt Miner; we're talking about GWAR legend The Sexecutioner, of course! Though, it's good that you brought it up because both will be in attendance at Five Points Festival in New York City this Saturday, May 20th, in a signing to promote the comic (and Miner will be there Sunday). Ashcan copies of GWAR: Orgasmageddon will be on hand (in limited quantities!), as well as some of Matt Miner's other comics, Sexecutioner prints, doggie doo snow cones, and all manner of other GWAR merchandise (somebody call the Morality Squad and get this whole thing shut down ASAP!).
But here's the most historic part of this event: straight out of the upcoming comic book, Estrogina Lugubrious, will make her first appearance live and in person at the event. The Facebook event announcement does not specify whether Miner or any members of GWAR plan to hose the crowd down with colorful bodily fluids, but we recommend wearing your most pristine white clothing just in case. Check out the info below:
Come to table K-3 to get your limited edition ashcans of GWAR: ORGASMAGEDDON #1 and get 'em signed by GWAR's Sexecutioner (appearing SATURDAY only), comic co-writer Matt Miner and, appearing for the fist time live and in-person ANYWHERE, Estrogina Lugubrious (as seen in the new comic book)!
Matt will also have other non-GWAR comics and Sexecutioner will have prints and other rad GWAR goods to drop your dough on. Getcha stuff signed by a GWAR legend!

The Five Points Festival is a collision of toys, comics, and counterculture curated by Clutter Magazine and presented by Midtown Comics. A designer toy and comic convention in New York's Lower East Side, Five Points is two days and nights of comic artists and writers, vinyl and plastic toys, original art, resin, plush, blind boxes, graphic novels, indie comics, blanks, minis, kaiju, Japanese vinyl, posters, prints, apparel, food trucks, and craft breweries – capped off by the 2017 Designer Toy Awards. The antidote to the average con, Five Points brings tastemakers, misfits, and rebels together with the new, retro, and infamous in a one-of-a-kind marketplace.
The Five Points Festival takes place in Pier 36 in New York's Lower East Side – 299 South Street. Also sometimes called Basketball City, Pier 36 sits right between the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. We're blocks away from Mission Chinese, Meow Parlour, and the Metrograph, and right next to the East River.
GWAR: Orgasmageddon #1, which raised over $45,000 on Kickstarter, written by Matt Maguire and Matt Miner with art by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer and more, will be in stores from Dynamite on June 7 (and you can check out a preview here).
