The hardest-working man in Columbus comix, Ken Eppstein, is curating an exhibit about the process of creating comic books from script to print from Feb. 7-23 at the Ohio Art League. The show also functions as a pop-up shop for local creators, including yours truly.
But you don’t just want to see art or buy comix. You want an experience, man. Ken’s got you covered for that, too.
Thursday, Feb. 7. 5-8 p.m.: Reception. It’s also your first chance to cop Nix Quarterly No. 5!
Saturday, Feb. 10, 4 p.m.: The History of Ohio Art with Caitlin McGurk, Engagement Coordinator at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library
Rumor this will be people bitching that Daryll Banks doesn’t get more work, and Bob Corby drunkenly demanding royalties from everyone.
Saturday, Feb. 16. 4 p.m. Diversity Among Comic Creators in Columbus Panel Discussion led by Victor Dandridge, Vantage Inhouse Productions
Friday, Feb. 22, 7 p.m.: Using Journalism to Create Comics presented by Derf Backderf
This features Derf, whose “My Friend Dahmer” landed on Time Magazine’s list of best nonfiction books. Not best nonfiction comic books. Best nonfiction books.
