Concert to raise money for Jack the Ripper book project
Columbus swing-punk rocker Wolfgang Parker, a musician for 16 years, is delving into the world of comic-book writing.
He'll perform a show at 9 p.m. Friday in Skully's Music-Diner, 1151 N. High St., to raise money to publish his 1888 project - a Victorian-era thriller centering on Jack the Ripper and a supernatural gang war.
The concept, Parker said, has been endorsed by screenwriter Steve Niles ( 30 Days of Night) and Marvel Comics illustrator Mike Perkins ( Captain America).
Parker has set a May 23 deadline to raise $6,000 via the website www.kickstarter.com, which helps pair art projects with donors.
Admission is $6. Call 614-291-8856 or visit www.skullys.org
