Go Underneath Cincinnati for this Comic-Book-Inspired Tunnel Tour

Pissed about the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron? Me too, pal. To heal the burn, get lost in the basement of Union Hall and explore a Cincinnati-born comic, MeSseD. The comic follows Lilliput, a tour guide to what lies beneath our feet, battling creatures and clogs to make sure the city’s wastewater continues to flow. Here, the seemingly disparate worlds of sewer management and science fiction collide in a mixed-media art exhibit and immersive visual/aural experience. The odd-but-cool exhibit, which has multiple dates through May and June, makes reading a comic book into a social moment — you’ll walk through the world with other attendees, while learning about MeSseD and the city’s Metropolitan Sewer District. It’ll be better than 3-D. 

6-9 p.m. Friday. Tours through June 16. $6; $4 ages 17 and under. Union Hall, 1311 Vine St., Over-the-Rhine, messedcomics.com/tunneltour
