Dressing up for Halloween took a uniquely creative and progressive twist this year at the Busboys & Poets on 14th and V Streets. People were asked to wear their favorite political superhero or super villain costume for a contest and were treated to a spectacular art show that was part of a book signing event for a new book by Erich Origen and Gan Golan, New York Times bestselling authors of Goodnight Bush.

The Adventures of Unemployed Man, their new adventure comic book, gives the millions of heroes struggling through the great recession some comic relief. Read a bit more about the event and see a couple photos here.
