This just in: “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women” runs through July 15 at Billy Ireland Museum!
This just in! Graphic Details will run at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University in Columbus through July 15! The show, which I co-curated, recently ended a terrific run at London’s Space Station 65 gallery. Graphic Details has thrilled audiences in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Washington, DC, Miami Beach, and Portland. It was inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward, America’s national Jewish newspaper. The Forward is sponsoring Graphic Details.
It’s finally here… Graphic Details: Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews is based on the exhibit I co-curated. It’s published by McFarland.
I contributed a bunch of essays on some of the amazing artists in the show, including Bernice Eisenstein, Sarah Glidden, Sarah Lazarovic, and Laurie Sandell.
“A much-needed book… While supplying added depth for people who are already fans of the medium, it gives insights to non-fans about why comics are so popular.” –Lilith
