Pop rumpus

“Where the Wild Things Are” by Matthew J. Fletcher

Stocked with Thor watercolors, Batman book sculptures and pop culture-inspired objets d’art all year long, Downtown gallery Metropolis Comic Art (1102 Mountain NW) doesn’t seek to show you something you’ve never seen before. On the contrary, its showroom offers artwork that taps into the quasi-mythological personalities popularized by comic books, anime and TV shows. In December, the gallery cranks up the fun another notch with their new show, Everyone’s a Kid. Thanks to pieces like Matthew J. Fletcher’s freewheeling watercolor “Where the Wild Things Are” and C.P. Wilson III’s “Leo” of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, adorably rendered with katana swords and all, the show should appeal to anyone who doesn’t completely reject their childhood. Opening reception happens Friday, Dec. 6, from 7 to 10:30pm, and the show stays up until Jan. 2. Try metropoliscomicart.com or a call to 255-0793 if you’ve got questions.
