To celebrate the 5th issue of McCloskey’s monster fighting comic, Top of the Line, Daniel McCloskey and Nils Skeletonballs are going to Philly. In the dual artist talk Skelletonballs will share his research of the unbelievable historical event in which a steamboat was filled with prostitutes during the American Civil War and never allowed land and the graphic novel he wrote to bring this history to life, Ship of Soiled Doves.

McCloskey is the author of the hybrid novel A Film About Billy, and is the founder of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers project.
