Once upon a time, there was a Seattle comics quarterly edited by Marc Palm called Intruder. After publishing 20 issues of one-color, full-page comics on newsprint, the core artistic collaborators ultimately got more demanding art jobs and disbanded. Ryan Tiszai and Simon Lazarus Vasta, two bartenders at Captain Blacks with a love of the form, took the baton and relaunched the project as Thick as Thieves. Last February, that project parted ways with Vasta. Now comics artists Regn Siisel and Asya Yaschenko have joined Tiszai to help rebrand, organize events, and run back-end operations for the newspaper. They've ditched the "stoic" Thick as Thieves moniker for the more upbeat Hair Flip. Hair Flip plans to throw a birthday party for itself. Local bands Familiars and Great Spiders will play. Victoria Holt will create a thematic photo booth for all your Instagram needs. Other local comics artists—James the Stanton, Max Clotfelter, and Push/Pull Gallery—will table their wares. by Rich Smith
