A Visual History of Comics

On Thursday, July 19th at 6:30 pm, graphic novelists Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood will take us on a two-part visual tour of comic book history in this inaugural episode of About Lawrence, a new series presented by Lawrence Public Library and Lawrence Magazine.

In Part I, writer Jai Nitz will walk us through the history and evolution of comics while illustrator Greg Smallwood illustrates each character on a projector. After a short intermission, Nitz and Smallwood will kick off Part II by talking us through the basics of sequential art and offering a sneak peek of their newest project to illustrate how it all works together.

Please note: this project contains “PG-13″ subject matter that may not be appropriate for kids! Part II isn’t recommended for anyone who’d prefer to steer clear of comic book crime and violence.
