Wow, this sounds like a great event! Could you post a reading list of must haves for those of us who can't get to Chicago? What is Narcissa about? Also I would love to see profiles on some of these greats in the biz. I'm certainly going to spread the word to those I know will be around to attend.
Having recently been to Japan and seen how comix are read by everyone and the imagery and content range are as broad as the readership from classic literature to romance novels as well as superheroes, I can appreciate the prodigious talents of the artists who have chosen this genre as their form of expression. I encourage any art lover to take a closer look at what is being produced here at home as well as the foreign markets to see some great art.
I'm glad this event will have an exhibit to show how this has been going on as a Black Expression both historically as well as today. If you are in Chicago, DON'T MISS IT!
