To fans of Naughty Bits comics, Roberta Gregory’s bitches need no introduction. There’s Bitchy Bitch, the furious, scrapping modern woman, heroine to all who have had strange men tell them to “Smile!,” the self-explanatory Hippie Bitch, and the angry, anguished Bitchy Butch—an unrepentant dyke with a hard attitude and a soft heart. Gregory will be doing the local rounds this week, appearing with Colin Upton (of the irreverent Buddha on the Road) and Donna Barr (creator of the infamous Desert Peach), as well as next week at the ultraglam Small Press Expo in Silver Spring. From 4:30-7:30 p.m. today at Dreaming City Comics, 2617 Columbia Pike, Arlington. FREE. (703) 521-0608; and from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday at Closet of Comics, 7315 Baltimore Ave., College Park. FREE. (301) 699-0498. (Arion Berger)
